Its always on
Pretty slow feed rate
For 30 bucks if you have nothing else, i guess its better than a vl 200. I would just save a couple more dollars and get a revvy,reloader, or ricochet. The constant feed gets really annoying after a while. You can get a 9 volt revvy for almost the same price. I would really suggest getting something else, but if you dont have enough $$$$$ then i guess its better than nothing.
Tippmann 98 Custom Black
14" 3A KO Barrel
Extreme Rage Overdrive Hopper
Lightened Trigger Pull
Polished Internals and Sear
3 modes to save battery
well uhhh none I guess
Well lets put it this way your practically spraying and praying if you shoot more than 10 BPS in my book but this goes faster than 9volt revvy and I've never tried a 12v It keeps up with my 98c ad I can make it go 7-9 BPS and when I get E-Bolt I can see this thing keeping up VERY WELL. Another thing to add to that last statement if you are just going full auto to show off then this is OK but Im not sure it will keep up but anyways thats just wasting paint isn't it?
It's tough. I haven't had it shot YET though but I have hit it on stuff. It has a little LED light that shows how much battery strength. The way it feeds with the rotating bottom it makes more contact than revvy (2arm 3 arm 4 5 maybe even 6) I wish that they would make a upgrade board so that it can go EVEN faster so it can keep up with faster guns. On the package it says the lid MAY break but it's as see-through as a clear lid but as tough as two VL 200 Lids.
If they make a board for this the way I SAY they should it may replace HALO.
Buy it if you have a mech or e-marker but if its e then make sure its 12BPS or less.
almost as fast as 12 volt revy
tough to break
it is constant feed(you have to turn on and off
gets jammed when full
This hopper is very good for the money and easily beats the quantam,does 9-11 balls per second. Feeds almost as fast as the 12 volt revy but you have to turn the switch when you want to stop the constant feed. 3 stages 7 bps , 8 bps 9-11 bps. The worst part is when you are playing if you have paintballs jammed full in it it jams andfeeds slower but once you shoot 5 out it works again.
If want hopper almost as good as a revy and dont mind constant feed than definently get this, its only 20-25 bucks. This deserves a 8 for the constant deed and jamming but it is so fast for the money so im givvin it a 9
trilogy pro autococker, custom products 16 in 2 piece barrel
Great for a semi-automatic gun, good for a first electric hopper
Very heavy, have to use a switch to turn it on
I've played with this hopper for all of my games and tournaments and it hasnt let me down yet. i would be in a bunker and turn it on as i run across the field then turn it off when i get to the next bunker. its good because unlike any other hopper i have you can use it like a non-electric hopper.
Its a good hopper for a middle to back or all around player

Evolution 3, which is faster, but much more expensive.
Smart Parts 14" barrel
3000psi Nitrogen steel tank
Sound-Motivated Extreme Rage Overdrive Hopper
backup Spyder MR1 w/ 14" barrel
Rather durable, has survived many collisions with trees,
Sits low enough.
Hard to open in combat,
Not sure I like the funnel loading.
This hopper has served me well in the time that I have used it. I originally picked one up for $38 online for my MR1, because gravity fed hoppers just didn't cut it for me. I broke a ball in it one day after taking a dive and had to take the thing apart and clean it, which wasn't much trouble, but ever since the hopper has taken just a tiny bit longer to feed balls, even on the highest setting. This problem got a little better after I took it apart and put it together again, so it is not a major issue.
Despite how durable the hopper is(I've hit it against trees, bunkers, rocks), my trigger walking skills have improved, so I'll be needing a new hopper, and the 9-11bps rating is pushing it. It will still be a useful back-up hopper, though.
I think that this is a good starter hopper, but it is definately better suited for mechanical and woodsball guns, rather than electrics. Over all, this is a rather good hopper, although it can't compete with higher-end loaders.

Okay, this goofy thing came in a package deal with my VS2. It is very cheap, so no worries there. It seems to be built very solid, and it is reliable.
Other than the few pros, this thing is a complete piece of junk. The paddles (if you wanna call them that) is a round piece of plastic with grooves jutting out of it. It's feed rate is pitiful, weighing in at something in the neighborhood of 10 BPS. The lid is incredibly hard to get open, I'm a 19 year old guy and I struggled to jerk it open. The sound-sensor feed is ridiculous. I'm not sure exactly how it works, but I have to shake it to get it to feed usually. The damn power switch is even hard to turn on and off.
This has potential to be a decent electronic loader to put on a semi-auto gun or to be a backup to a backup, but there's really no reason to voluntarily buy this thing. Go ahead and get an Egg or a low-end Viewloader electric hopper if price is an issue. It gets a 4 for durability and reliability.

Keeps up with my slow fingers
Feed tube is small
Well i have pretty damn slow fingers so this hopper is fine for me, except my gun kinda has unlimated rof, so... My gun is overkill for my hopper. I did a drop test with this hopper and it went thru a pod of paint in about 9-10 seconds, pretty slow... And it kept not feeding for some reason, it might just be because i was using crappy wal mart paint. Idk.
This hopper is alright, i would maybe recommend this a noob like me with a slow finger that cant afford or doesnt need a halo b or any other good hopper like that, only bad thing is it has a small feed tube and is kinda always on... But you can get past it.
Constant agitation means constant noise
not as fast as the more expensive feeders
this is a decent, solid performing feeder. it's not going to be anywhere near as fast as the more technical feeders, but it doesn't cost an arm and a leg
after having spent several weekends using this i found out i can safely shoot around 6-7 bps, with no issues, which is plenty for me. i personally have not yet had any feed issues with this hopper
as far as performance goes, it works well for what it is. my only issue is the constant wine of the motor. a little annoying, but I'm not going to pay another 60 dollars just to get rid of it.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to upgrade from a standard gravity hopper, or anyone who needs an electric hopper who isn't a bps freak
I would have given it an 8, because of the constant noise, but the cost-effectiveness of this hopper bumped it up to a 9

semi auto, pmi pirhana
14" smart parts barrel
12 oz co2
extreme rage overdrive hopper
High ball capacity
VERY, very loud constantly on and needs a battery replacement after every game or so
i just bot this hopper this week and tried it out today it works decently on a semi auto gun and will prevent chopping. Overall for semi auto guns this hopper wil lrun great but the lid is hard to open. id recommend the sound activated version of this hopper because then u dont have to listen to a electric motor all game.
Overall this hopper is descent for a semiauto gun and will keep u from ball chopping, but beware it is pretty loud and u should keep it off during woodsball games until u find the other team and in speedball its good.
Halo, Velocity, Rotor- all significantly better, and more expensive
Smart Parts Vibe, Extreme Rage Overdrive hopper, 68/45 HPA tank
Simple to use

I AM USING THE NEW HOPPER
When I bought this hopper, it was working great with my Vibe. After about an hour of play (it was cold outside) the hopper stopped working on my Vibe, but would work on a PMI Piranha. I was quite upset, and thought I was going to have to buy a new hopper.
Turned out that it wasnt working because the cloth over the speaker was caked with paint. The sound simply wasnt getting into the speaker. After removing the black film, and putting a clear piece of tape on it (to prevent paint from clogging the speaker) it worked fine
Good hopper, it feeds slow for an electric hopper, but for the Vibe it's perfect. With the competition mode, it feeds for all three modes my gun has without a problem.
All-in-all its a good beginner hopper
