Products Used:
Reloader II -nowhere close-
Marker Setup: Icon E, Empire Reloader B, Dead-on X-core 8-stage expansion chamber, 16"J&J Ceramic Barrel, t-board, break beam eyes, the list goes on and on.
Strengths: HELLA FAST
Stock with rip
Sound activation.
Weaknesses: Nil
Review: After many months of use, i can safely say there is no better hopper. With a B2 or equilzer board, you would then have the fastest hopper availible. Period.

Drop tests -with stopwatch-(140 balls) :
Test 1.) 5.68 seconds
Test 2.) 6.1 seconds
Test 3.) 5.89 seconds
Test 4.) 6.01 seconds.

So around 22-23bps, not too shabby =)

Works well on every gun basically. Dont use cheap paint with a stock wheel, because you'll crush paint. Anyway, best hopper around.

Never had batteries die on me in a game, and the rip is handy around the chrono, or for unfeeding paint.
Conclusion: Hey people, there is a reason the Russian Legion all use these things...

Review: ok this overall is a wicked marker, i got mine on sale for $168 can. and it was diamond coated and my friends got 1 and he bought his for $250 can so i laughed at him but back to my story um this hopper loads just fine and dandy. its SEE THROUGH witch is great even mine witch is black if u put into the sun u can see through it, every1 says put in 4 to make it lighter and thats BULL, like come on o no i need my hopper 1milligram lighter come on, the rip drive stock is amazing for jams but this hopper doesnt jam so its kinda usless, the price is kinda bad unless u get it on sale like i did.
Conclusion: BUY this hopper and ull never have to buy another 1 again u can just get some new boards in it and it will match any new 1s for the next 20 years.

Review: The is a realy fast hopper! Apparently its slightly slower than the halo but this comes standard with a rip drive and loads when it 'hears' the gun fire rather when theres no ball seen buy the eyes. As this is sound activated it will feed any colour paint with no problems - BUT you must remember that the PDS in your marker may not 'see' dark colour paint

This hopper has 3 speeds and can be run on either run on 4 or 6 AA batteries. This helps to reduce the weight as it is a heavy hopper!

The feedneck will need to be sanded down to fit in most feed necks. IMO this is not a disadvantage as the feedneck is realy strong compared to my revvy.
Conclusion: This is a very good hopper and is a must for people who fire super fast markers. (I know i don't but some day i will!) I

IMO If you can afford it get one.

Products Used:
No hopper compares but had a VL revy
Marker Setup: Dragunfly Mech ,flame, drop, on/off valve,14" system X barrel, Empire reloader b
Strengths: Everything
Weaknesses: Nothing
Review: When i bought this hopper i knew it was good but it was even better than i thought it was. If you buy this hopper you will never need another hopper for the rest of your life. It is able to work even when a ball breaks in the hopper.The thing I liked the most about this hopper is it has a rip drive so if you run out of batteries during a game u can manually turn the drive and every trun you make the hopper feeds 5 balls as if it had batteries.
Conclusion: Buy this hopper

Review: Ok, this is pretty much the best hopper avalilabe now a days. It is sound activated, good if you get some time of chop or something in the feedneck(i never have). It looks really cool. It weighs about the same as an egg2. It uses a spring to have constant tension. There are some rumors that its reaction time is slower cuz it uses sound instead of light. This is not true for two reasons. ONE- the spring keeps constant pressure on the balls, so even if no sound is made, balls will still be forced into the chamber at a speed of 30 bps. ALso, with beam reflection(light) you need to wait for gravity to push the balls in front of the sensor, this is not the case with the reloader. The reason the relaoder is so fast is because the motor is actually not usually pushing the balls. Usually it is just tightening the spring. For this reason there is never any lapse watsoever for the paddle to start spinning like there is in an egg2. If you find yourslef outshooting ur egg, or even ur revvy, i would definatley recommend this product.
Conclusion: If you find yourslef outshooting ur egg, or even ur revvy, i would definatley recommend this product. WEll worth the money!
