Tilt Sensing - the agitator always pulls the balls up towards the feed hole. If you tilt it the right it spins counter-clockwise. If you tilt to the left it spins clockwise. Low frontal profile with 180 ball capacity Sound Activation
The Odyssey HALO TSA LED Frontman is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I got this for Christmas and use it on my vision imp, I was using rps big balls and some were brittle due to the weather so the agitator ended up breaking one or two balls witch made the shell get very greasy and its not that easy to clean on the inside.. For those of you who have imps you know that they can be sorta heavy and this loader doesn't make it much heavier at all like other hoppers do witch is good cause its nice and light. I don't like the 180 ball capacity but ill get used to it. it never even dry feeds unless i have been leaning to the side for a while when im low on paint, but no big problem and agitates by sound and tilt which means when u shoot the gun it will spin and when you tilt to the left or right, the movement of the loader and paintballs on the agitator will spin in the opposite direction to make sure it feeds paint into the marker.
Light, compact, and fast what else would you want from an awsome loader?

Smart Parts Ion, 14" Smart Parts Teardrop Barrel, 20 oz. CO2 with 3000 psi remote
Keeps up with my Ion.
I have to return mine, and they won't reimburse me for the shipping & handling.
I took my setup out to my grandma's house to test it out before the summer so I won't have any surprises.. It was able to keep up with my gun on both semi- and rebound. Overall, here's my opinion.
Pros - ·Tilt sound activation
·High feed rate
·Tight seal for paintballs (magnet-sealed lid)
Cons - ·Brittle feed neck (I've managed not to break it by being very gentle with it; some people haven't been so lucky, once I put it in my Ion though, I've never taken it out)
·Mine had a defective board, so I have to send it back in. Limits playing time, and they also won't reimburse me for shipping & handling.
Over all, I give this hopper a 9 out of 10, because it fits my needs completely, but I never rate anything perfect.
spyder imagine 04, shocktech superfly bolt, lapco clamping feed neck, halo tsa led front man, c.a.m.d trigger handle
Feeds quickly somewhat light
Spins if somebdy yells at u
Ok now this is a good loader but if u use it in a tournament and talk back the ref the motor will continually spin because of the noise. i'm also special because i have a halo b rip drive in side it because my Friends halo b shell cracked and i took the motor.
I would recommend this hopper to a front man but just don't get yelled at by the ref.
So I needed a cheap hopper for my OutKast and I looked around on ActionVillage.com for one.
All I saw where huge, ugly, expensive hoppers.
I found this hopper in clear and it is my favorite now
I bought the clear hopper and it is beautiful. I can easily see how many balls I have left and it is small, gives great bounces and fits my gun perfectly.
My friend (idiot) dropped it from about 5 ft onto the concrete. After reading all the reviews and hearing it was weak, I feared the worst. Luckily it didnt have a scratch. The feed-neck is plenty strong as well. The polycarbonate is tough and light. because the paint exploded inside, I had to clean it out. I was scared that it would not work after having water in it but it worked perfectly.
Works perfectly-no annoying buzzing sound all the time like an eggy.
1 button, press on, hold off
As soon as I lean out of a bunker the other way, it switches and consistently loads balls.
I cannot outshoot this with a perfectly timed mech marker. I shoot around 16 bps and have never outshot this thing.
PRICE: $36 ON ACTIONVILLAGE.COM! (the Diablo version [same thing, different sticker])
This hopper cannot be beat. Who needs a belt hopper anyway, save yourself the money and get this
Buy it, you wont be sorry
I feel like a n00b giving it a 10/10 but i cant think of anything wrong with it.
Standard 200 hoppers, Revvy, Richochets, and other Halos.
WGP Autococker Trilogy Sport
Jackal High Speed Derlin Bolt
Shocktech #4 Dropforward
Halo TSA LED Frontman
Teardrop barrel 14"
Can shut off at your leisure
Looks a bit fragile.
The bps of this hopper is pretty consistant as long as you tap on drop tests. When on a marker it activates well to the sound and is more than enough for mech markers. Sometimes it activates when you yell out on the field but this is not a problem as nothing really happens such as the rotor screwing up ball formation and such. Tilt activation is nice. It keeps up very nicely with my autococker and I have never encountered a chop with my current setup.
This is a great hopper for a great price tag. You can get them for $40 and they perform well. Speed is great, but not fast enough to feed anything more than an Ion or other electro marker. Great buy.

JT protium- 48ci 3000psi tank, halo tsa frontman, 14'progressive
Recently played a whole day with it. loved it it works flawlessly. got shot about 3 times direct hits to the hopper, no biggie no cracks or anything....the smoke color is some what blueish purple its weird...... i can only fit 185 balls or else it jams, sound activation works well, tilt sensing works well also. fast i clocked it at 14 balls a second...is said to feed 13-15.
Good loader, is cool, now the newb can say yea i got a halo..
I would much prefer this over the revvy, 42dollars somewhat expensive, but worth it.
Viewloader Revolution 12 volt CA
Halo B reloader
Kingman Spyder TLX w/ the following upgrades:
Lightened trigger pull
J&J ceramic 14'' barrel
4+1 pod belt
Higher powered bolt spring
Trinity alluminum hopper connector low rise
Best for its price
TSA or tilt sound activation
This hopper kicks a**
I got the led version because I didn't want to worry about too much electronics like game timer that could use up battery life.
I like this hopper because it uses sound activation instead of being continual agitation
this in turn saves battery life and keeps your enemy from finding you when not firing (like in an x ball game, when its only u left on your team)
The TSA keeps balls flowing towards the feed hole constantly no matter the angle of the gun being fired
Also a LED light tells you when your battery gets weak but I always carry a spare just in case
I reccomend you buy it
I got it for $46.00 including shipping from
After I ordered, it arrived 3 days later, and owned my friends w/ it
If you're firing over 12 BPS this is a must buy item

This is a nice middle range hopper. Right now my walk fluctuates between 10-14 and this thing can keep up with that just fine.
-Really nice layout, easy.
-180-190ish ball holder, not bad.
-Mine was $43 on Action Village, amazing deal.
-It's a Halo.
-Feedneck does feel a bit cheap, but not as bad as most people crack it up to be.
-9v batteries died alot faster than I thought they would, invest in rechargeables.
-Hopper seems a bit to big (although not a giant like the Halo B or tsa backman series) sits really really high up on some feednecks.
Probably pretty similar to something like a revvy, or empire reloader series for $10-$20 less. If you have an Ion or anything less get this, anything higher than that and you'd probably need an egg, apache, vlocity, or halo b.

Normal 200 round hopper
Viewloader quantium(sucks!!!don't buy it!!!)
Spyder Xtra with...
Tear drop barrel
Halo tsa led frontman hopper
9 once co2 tank
This hopper is realy great if your not shooting 13+ bps.
Strenght- Easy to use (one button)
Lots of room (for a frontman hopper)
Strong shell (I droped it!!!! and it still works)
From what I've heard, long battery life
The price is great (I'm Canadian and I paid 80$!!! (usually 110$))
Halo tsa led frontman-
tsa(Tilt Sound Activated which means it doesn't run unless you're shooting which saves batteries)-
looks good(not that it matters)-
perfect for any low to high end mechanical marker-
big and slightly bulky-
only holds 150-60 balls-
can't keep up with high end electric marker(shocker/dm4/timmy)-
Over all it's a good, solid, hopper with only a few drawbacks. It is perfect for anyone looking to give their marker a boost.
