Viewloader Evolution 2 - Very Fast, nice shape, large capacity
Halo B - Fast, Eyes, Force-Feed
Gravity Hoppers - these "Shake-n-Shoots" are good for recballers with semi's, but not for electros
Viewloader Quantum - Low capacity, the agitator is annoying
Odyssey RPM - Black
24 oz. Co2

Tippmann 98 Custom - Black
32 degrees large angled drop forward - Green
GTA Double Trigger
Homemade Metal Flat Trigger (easy to walk)
20 oz. Co2 tank with Butt - Plate
Tippmann Stock Hopper
Paintballs usually "Ricochet" off the hopper when it is hit
Feeds pretty fast
Medium Capacity (170)
Not Force-Feed so it can get slow
I bought this hopper mainly for the price, when I got my Odyssey. I didn't expect much but when i recieved it, I was very surprised. This hopper feeds very fast for a $20 agitator. It works fine on my RPM and even better on a semi. One of the main drawbacks is since this is not a Force-Feed loader, the recoil on your gun can make it feed slowly. Also, if you are using eyes on your paintball gun, this drawback will also affect your rate of fire. I myself am very satisfied with this hopper as I tend not to shoot very fast, usually playing front in speedball.
I would recommend this hopper to anybody with a semi-auto marker that wants better performance out of their gun. Also, I would recommend it to anybody who has a tight budget or simply wants a quality hopper for a low price.

This hopper is pretty decent for the money you pay for it. Ive used it around 15 times and I have found that it feed consistantly. I am still on the same 9v battery as when I bought it so its pretty energy efficient. I like the wedge shape of the hopper which I know for a fact because I have felt direct hits to the front of the hopper. It is very cheap at only 44 bucks at Badlands. But you must also realize taht you get what you pay for. It is bulky and loud which is a definate minus on the points. Its also heavy which when you are running every oz counts.
Well all in all its a decent hopper. Im goin to give it a low 8 because of the cheapness and overall durability. I am taking points off for the constant adjitation and the fact that its really loud, adn thats just anoying to you and everyone on the field,
The 200 rounder but everyone has used this and a Halo TSA LCD.
I use the Lasoya Promaster stock, a Carbon Fiber air tank with a 68/71 Dye cover, and a Ricoche Rhino hopper.
-Kind of good on batteries
-Good starter hopper
-Doesn't spin if over filled
This hopper on my Lasoya Promaster is a joke. It just plain SUCKS. If I try and shoot fast it just stops. I would not recommend this hopper unless you have money to blow. After using this I am buyin a Halo there only like another $50-$150 more depending on what you want to spend. The continuous spinning is annoying and really really noisy. If you had this on during a bush ball or something you would have to shut it off because people would find you. If you take this in speedball all I have to say is thats to bad.
Don't waste your money save up and buy something worthy of your money.
Aight so i was using this hopper when i had my rodeo. the ricochet thing works. i never gotten hit on my hopper except on the lid from the side. ive also actually seen several balls bounce off. it also has a reli small profile which is always good. it only takes 1 9 volt to power, which in turn makes it a light hopper.
it has no sensor which means it continuously running. this gets annoying if ur not actually shooting. it feeds about 6 bps consistently and i modded mine. some ppl bash it for this and they r dumb because u shouldnt even be considering this hopper if ur gun can go over 6 bps anyways. and if u bought it and expected it to feed faster u should have read the description. and the only other hoppers u could reli compare this to would be the quantum and a gravity one, so ur expectations shouldnt be that high in the first place.
This is a great hopper for some one starting out or with a mechanical marker. it never starved my rodeo once and the ricochet reli works. o yea, its kinda hard to load if u have a high feedneck and/or drop forward because the lid is almost horizontal. u get used to it though eventually. good deal for $20-25 too.
12v Revvy w/ x-board
You can see how much paint you have left
Extremely slow...slower than my gravity one
Big and bulky
This hopper is not worth the $30 or so you pay for it. It's slow, bulky, always spinning, loud, and ugly in my opinion. You can see how much paint you have left which is nice I'll give it that but other than that It's not a good hopper. If you're going to get a Richochet get a AK or somthing better.
Don't get it get a 12v revvy for just a little more or keep saving for an egg 2 since the price dropped.
tippmann custom pro (response trigger, drop forward)
ricochet rhino hopper
dye ultralite barrel
Fast for only 10 bps
Noisy when agitating
This is a decently good hopper for only $30. I got my mine off ebay because I couldn't afford a good hopper. It looks faster than 10bps, and smokes like a mother with a response trigger. No other hopper looks like a ricochet, which helps it deflect paint when it's hit in the front. The most negative part I found was when your playing in the woods and it's quiet, it's extremely noisy when it's on.
Overall, this is a decent hopper. If your pretty much broke, my a ricochet rhino. You'll be happy for the low amount of money you spent. I would suggest buying a ricochet apache, which feeds 19 bps if you can afford it though.
Not fast enough at 8bps to feed a fast gun. Also kind of big.
I will start with the Pros:
-Good for beginners
-Great on batteries
Also some others things are that it was really cheap for me to buy (25$) and it worked very well until I got a higher grade gun.
Now the Cons
-not a great loader for any competive player
I would suggest not getting this unless your low on money or you really need a hopper because as i've said it is very loud and very big.
In conclusion good for beginners and recreational players, though when you play every weekend or enter tournaments its just not the hopper.
Overall this hopper is pretty good for the price. You can pick one up for $15 off of most websites. This hopper is faster and more reliable than the VL Quantum. Compared to the Quantum this hopper is about half as much with twice the performance. This hopper also does not break balls like the quantum does. Sometimes in game play this hopper does jam but not often.
I recomend it to the begining paintballer on a budget. This hopper is a good buy if you have a piranah paintball marker or other similar markers.
Spyder Pilot ACS Red-black fade
Smartparts Progressive '06 16" barrel
20oz Pure Energy CO2
Feeds well when working
On/off button broke after third use
Continuously going when on
This hopper is pretty decent for a low end gun, if you want to take the risk on whether it will work or not. Mine was great for the first few time, but after it broke obviously it was a piece of crap. The Ricochet AK is better since it stops spinning when there are balls in the feed, and then turn back on when more are needed.
Overall an average hopper, i would suggest looking somewhere else
Trilogy Competition Autococker
Pure Energy 12 oz on/off
16" JJ Ceramic Barrell
Sucks up bateries kind of fast
I got the Ricochet Rhino from - www.badlandspaintball.com and so far it has worked good for me. It's perfect for tournament guns like the Ion, Pirhana Evo (2005), all autocockers and pretty much any gun under 350$. This hopper hasn't given me any trouble. The constant agitation is not a problem if you're playing speedball or shooting off lot's of paint but don't get this hopper if you are just playing woodsball.
