Lucky 15 barrel kit
68/4500 HPA crossfire fiber wrapped tank
Shacking my be required
There is not too much to say about a standard hopper. This is a great hopper for some of the low end markers. Jams may happen every soo often soo just give it a good shake every soo often. This is hopper holds 200 paintballs of soo. IF you want a good hopper this might be the product for you.
tippman model 98 looking for a new gun i cant decied which one to choose the
dye excel barrel spyder e-99 or the pirahna eforce gti
20 oz co2 tank
It's a sturdy hopper it holds paintballs not Many jams
Nothing it's a normal hopper
I dont know what to really saw about this hopper it does it's job of holding paintballs. You cant get mad if it's not electric becouse you know what you bought and you got what you paid for. My old viewloader clear hopper would often not alow the paintballs into the feed but once i picked up the pmi hopper it never happened again
Pick this product up if you dont want ,dont need, or dont have enuff for an electric hopper

dragun compact, mongoose front block, victor volumizer, spyder xtra beavertail, bottomline w/expansion chamber, tru flight 14', quantum
Strong, looks coooler than vl200, spring lid
There cant really be any because it is just a gravity hopper.
I had this hopper before i had my quantum (not much better). this hopper looks way cooler when you get a black and clear shell and add them together. this one is much stronger than most others like the vl200, and ive never actually had any problems, except this one time i aimed up in the air and the lid popped open and all the paint fell in my face.

Well I myself am not very fond of grav. feeds but newer players its good!
Feeding isnt very good, its good for the price though
If you have read the VL Quantum hopper reviews it says that it feeds worst than grav fed hoppers... come on guys! obviously most of those people don't spend time modding items. I have gotten my VL Quantum to feed about 12 bps. a grav. feed dusnt do that. this is a good hopper although its not very fast. hint: take apart and sandpaper and oil they feed neck and near it. It works! I have done this and it increases the feed and try and oil the hopper although there are some negs. to that. Good price and as someone else said-
It comes w/ all different colors to match ur gun. I spray painte my hopper n sanded it and now i lend it to my newb friends every now and then and they ask me how i did it. Just mod your gear up and then see how it is.
Hope it was helpful!
Good Price (like 2-5 dollars) mod it and ur all set to go!
This is a great gravity feed hopper. It is WAY better than the Allen paintball gravity loader. It is just as good as the extreme rage hopper.
I got this hopper because I didnt have enough money to get my electro yet and I needed to play paintball still. I picked this up for 6.00 at my local meijers. I got home and tested it out and it fed as fast as my blackmaxx could shoot. (With my trigger mods that is around 9bps) Thats pretty good for a gravity feed hopper. Overall it looks good, is cheap and it works well with a lowend semi.
This is a great hopper for the price, dont go out and buy some crappy hopper when you can get a good one for a dolllar more.

Crossfire 68ci/4500psi Carbon Fiber Tank (HP)
Rocket Cock II
Some kind of cheap, off-brand tank cover
Very nice fit and finish
No seams in the feedneck
When the hopper that came with my 98 Custom broke, I took a trip to my local Meijer's. I bought this nice looking gravity fed for about 7$. I was not disappointed at all. The finish is incredible, and there are no seams in the feedneck or anything. It's put together very good, and has a cool looking logo on it. I got the one with the pissed off looking little kid on the side, the Extreme Rage one. When I got my R/T, this just couldn't keep up, so I got a Reloader II. But this hopper is awesome for anybody who likes to place shots, and not spray.
If you've got a mech Spyder or Tippmann, this is the hopper for you, until you go electro or R/T.

Spyder TL-X, Halo TSA Hopper, Stock Barrel, CIP Sure fit adapter, 20oz CO2
Sits high above your gun
Constant dry firing
I bought this because I was starting out and didn't want a fancy hopper. The hopper sits high up on my gun and I constantly dry fire. Even when the gun is aimed straight the gun still dry fires on occasion. The hopper holds 200 rounds and costs approx $5
If your starting out buy it, but if you have the money, buy an electric hopper, or at least upgrade when you have enough money.
VL 200- Pretty much the same, feed neck worse
Quantam- Agitating but I would rather use the PMI 200rd
Eggy II Y-Board- Blows this out of the water
Spyder Pilot ACS
Redz Marker Cover
Evil Barrel Condom
JT IZE Mask
PMI Twin Pod Harness
And lots of Evil Stickers
Good Feed Neck, Strong
Many of you will think of these reviews as a comparison of one similar product to another. I only half think this way. I feel the product should be reviewed in how well it preforms amongst its class and how well it preforms to what we would like.
Amongst its class this hoper pretty much wins. It has a stronger feed neck than the VL200 and sanding is required for a VL200 to fit a 7/8" elbow. This hopper does not have a stronger lid. I have dropped the VL200's many times and they have never broken. Only a couple times have I dropped the PMI 200rd and it did indeed break. However to fix a broken feed neck you have to replace the entire hopper. To replace the lid, well you can buy replacement lids and installation is relativley simple (just don't lose or install incorrectly that little tiny spring). When using this hopper, you have to constantly shake it. Many who are proud believers in the performance of this hoper will say, when you run the hopper will shake so there is no need for intentional shaking. This is incorrect. When shooting long strings you will have to frequently shake the hopper.
These hoppers are only good on low end mechanicals. I would not dare put one of these on an electro unless it had an eye or an acs bolt. I have also found that when I used to own a Black Maxx the hopper would get shot off the maker when you were running low on paint. Not a good thing.
My final choice for the rating of this product is half how is preforms on a low ed mechanical=8 How its preforms on an electro=0 So that averages to be a 4
Mokal Fokus, Gravity Hopper, Co2, All else stock. (Rental Gun at Area 51 paintball in Ontario)
load like all other gravities
This hopper does what all gravity hoppers do, loads balls as fast as gravity can drop them.
There is really nothing wrong with it, doenst open up in the middle of the game or anything.
Seems strong enough, my friend accidently knocked my gun outa my hand, no cracks.
1 think i dont like about these shaped hoppers, is that when its full, and u leave it open, which obivously u dont, but i was just testing, balls will pour out if u tilt or shake the gun slighty.
My idea is that the lid should be a bit higher, maybe more at an angle so that there is a guard to prevent balls from coming out, sorta like a halo/reloader b.
Hard 2 explain.
Basically no pros or cons, just feeds balls and is durablable enough to last.
