Spyder Electra '05 w/ACS, DXS Pulse (V2), Pure Energy HPA
Easy to Clean
6xAA Batteries Required
This is the best loader I have ever used. It is so fast, its not even funny. I have yet, and will never see anyone shoot as fast as this baby can throw the paintballs out there. The pulse mode is wicked, its like a muscle pumping and waiting for you to shoot. If you think this is slower than a rotor, in theory...it is. Hook it up with an RF chip to your ETEK and you will suddenly see how much more responsive and faster the Pulse really is. Drop tests dont do this loader justice.
The design is very nice, I love it. Its low profile and I can see over my loader a lot better than say the prophecy or the Halo's.
The price was expensive, but now they are dirt cheap. Pick one up while you still can.
This is one of the easiest loaders to clean, 2 seconds and its open. 10 more and your loader is sparkling clean!
The magnetic lid is a bit tough, but grow some muscles. Its there so that if you drop your loader, all your paint doesnt fall off. Or if you dive into a bunker, then the cap doesnt pop off. Its that strong for a reason...
Lastly, the only thing I dont like is the 6xAA batteries. Realistically, with the amount of time you get out of it I dont mind it and wont count it down towards my review.
Best loader on the market, now half the price of the rotor. Seriously, get up and buy it while you still can...you will not regret it!

Feednecks snapping off
Maybe a little bulky for some
Sync capability leaves all other competitors in the dust.
It's a good sized loader, seems to be pretty strong. The shell I have has yet to crack. I've never had the feedneck problem, I don't plan on doing much diving. I look forward to aftermarket shells when the lawsuit is settled.
Definitely worth having since you're able to sync it with your gun AND adjust speed.

05 shocker with a black heart board, hyper 2, 15 degree, HE bolt, Russian legion grips, nasty X trigger.
I was surprised at how strong and durable the shells were.
The only weekness i found is the feedneck be very carefull they brake very easy.
well when i first bought my pulse i didn't know what to expect, because it was new and not alot of people had it. But now that i have it i don't regret buying it, i't the strongest, fastest hopper out there i believe. I like it way better then a Vlocity or a halo.
BUY IT! you will not regret it and if you break something you can ship it in and they will fix it for free.
I got my first pulse worked great for about 2 weeks after that each time i took the pulse off my gun the feedneck would have more and more cracks after about a month of play it was done the feedneck was totally broken off i got another one did the same thing so i had 2 pulses break within about a month and a half
If ur just a backman its ok i guess but this thing takes very little abuse its pretty much just good for speed

This loader has gotta be the best one out there, it was recommended to me by 5 people and i must say, i have not been disappointed yet.
It has the looks, strength, speed, ease of use, a good lid with the aid of a magnet to prevent it from opening during the game, and best by far is how easy it is to remove the working parts to clean up.
I am yet to purchase the rf chip, but even without it, its performance is excellent. 42BPS out of the box. that says it all.
I recomend this hopper as it was recomended to me. you will not be let down by this loader. It as it all

Smaller feedneck so its closer to you gun
Maybe weight if you use the AA battery pack
I have not gotten to use this hopper at the field yet but i have been feedint paint through it i think i have had one jam and the unjam button is alotta help and I was told the company got sued and they dont make em anymore idk if this is true but could sumone comment this review to help me out thanks.
If the company has been sued and you have the money get your hands on one its the best hopper i ahve ever used.
This loader is worth every penny i paid for it. The lid was a little rough to open at first, but I'm klutzy that way:-). After I loaded up this loader there was not a single problem with it. There were no misfeeds and no broken balls in the loader. I put the Pulse on my friends gun which shoots 20+ BPS. We decided to turn the eyes off, and not a single ball broke! Beats a Halo already. Even when my friend dropped it on the ground, there was hardly a scratch(he's an idiot). So overall, I would have to give this loader a 9 just because nothing is perfect, and I thought the RF chip should have come with the loader.
My final recommendation is to get this loader, not a Halo. You will not regret it (I sure didn't). Even if your gun doesn't shoot 230487 BPS, you might upgrade later.
vlocity jr with gangstar board- faster than pulse without rf chip
egg 3 - nothing compared to pulse
empire b reloader
Vlosity jr with gangstar/draxxus pulse

Lid is very hard to close
Bought hopper to see what all the fuss was about. Compared to my velocity jr the pulse is half a pound more with batteries installed. now for speed the velocity is faster with the gangter board. But when you put the RF chip in your gun the pulse will keep up with any marker. That being said buy the rf chip. If not buy the velocity. The velocity holds more paint, believe me I tested. and has a larger mouth lid. While using the pulse with rf chip in my 06 ego. I still managed to get it to mis fire at 19 bps with 3/4 of a hopper left.Batteries last long time id say about 10 cases plus per change. where the velocty only gets about 3 or less.
update ////feedneck broke off and battery door wont open to change batteries. changing review to a 7 untill this problem is fixed.. although when it does work it is the best. its when it doesent work that the vlocity jr rules.
update-got new hopper but the removable drive is very wiggly. Battery are a pain to put in. feels like its goin to brake.All in all Its just the fastest but not at all durable or relible.
Buy it if you can adapt it to the rf chip if not go for the velocty jr with gangstar board. its lighter faster holds more paint

I bought this loader from my local paintball shop for $140. As soon as I got it, I loaded it up with a pod-full of paint and saw how fast this puppy was. It emptied the 160 balls in about 5 seconds, which is pretty darn fast. When i put this into my ego's feedneck, i was suprised that it fit because with my old vlocity, i had to sand it down for about an hour to get it to fit. I played about 20 games throughout the day, and i didnt encounter a single broken ball or jam. When i got home, i decided to see how easy it was to clean it. I must say that the first time you try and take out the drive cone is a little difficult, but once it is broken in it is a breeze.
This is a fantastic loader. It is so easy to clean compared to most other hoppers on the market, it is fast, and the feedneck was perfect.
I jumped on the bandwagon for this one.. After all the hype I had to try it out. I didn't go for the full RF chip and everything though. Even on pulse mode this thing can keep up with anything. I did a drop test to see which would win. Against my halo b it easily snuffed it out by over a second. The best part about this hopper is definitely the detachable front. It is a bit hard the first couple of times you do it, but it loosens to the point were eventually you can do it without tools. My friend borrowed it for his electra, and it blew paint all up inside the pulse, wasn't a hassle at all to clean. Took 2 minutes and then I was back in action. The lid was the thing I was most disappointed with. It is hard to get off (compared to the halo b's) and generally doesn't move/snap on as well as it should. I replaced it with a ghetto speedfeed, but the starting lid was a problem. It has a shorter feed neck then the halo b, which might make it a little tight for those with qlocks, and big hands...
Great hopper, faster, and more easily maintained then any other hopper I've tried. The lid is a disappointment though. For that it gets a 9.5, but it only lets me do it to 9.0.
