The newly re-engineered eVLution II electronic feeder loader won't starve your marker, no matter how fast you shoot. It feeds faster than any other loader on the market today. The eVLution II features: a feed rate of up to 17 balls per second, special designed feeding propeller with new JVON flexible blades, a stronger spring loaded curved door which opens down acting as a funnel for faster fills and less spills, high impact resistant shell and longer neck, easy cleaning design takes after the VL Revolutionï¿½s field proven construction, LED light low-battery indicator, IR sensor controlling on/off propeller actuation and battery saving circuitry.
The Viewloader eVLution II is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Spyder Electra ACS
20 oz CO2 Tank
Halo b w/ victory board and rip drive
good rate of fire
runs offa 2 9 volt batteries
easy on and off switch
battery low light
holds 190 balls
good price range
loud (gives away when your re-loading)
the door is hard to open in a hurry
the spout is small and you can miss when re-loading
the door will not close if not pushed all the way up
paint got under the door and was a pain to clean out
Its a good product for a medium rof. its a cool looking hopper and is minimal profile. it blends in with my guns look. overall, i recommend it.
Taped neck to make a tighter fit can still out-shoot it with electra though
Yea this would be the next best hopper to a halo b. Mine shoots 23PBS for sure. Even though it shoots that fast i can still out do it with the spyder electra. I recommend this hopper if you don't have the 120 for a halo b. It was loose when i got it on my gun (it would spin or fall off if held upside) but i just got some tape and wrapped it around the neck and now i can hold it upside, shake it, throw it, and jump around with it on my gun and it doesn't move.
Ok the feed neck!!!!!!!!!!!!! doesnt fit on some markers toooo fat
Ok first with the lid..the lid most loaders u can hold the gun with 1 hand shootin and the other hand with the pod loading..with this thingy it flips down and always wanna go up..u have to hold the lid down and other hand with pod....the feed neck..if i cant find any adapters i have to tape it......
well this thingy is force feed which is good=) and its really fast
First bring your gun to local shop and ask will the feedneck fit on my marker? if they say it will definatly get it....i will give a 7 for the feedneck and the bad lid...

I got this hopper recently after buying my cocker thinking that I would need something better than the Extreme Rage piece of crap that I was using on my Spyder. I picked up a clear one at Fireball Mountain, and the guy even included the batteries. Took it home and shot a hopper full pretty quick with a stock Cocker and I had no feed problems whatsoever. This hopper might not be the best choice if you're shooting a Timmy, Angel or other high-end electro in tournies, but the hopper with a Z-Board kept up with my friend's E-Bladed Cocker shooting 20+ bps. The thing that I really like about the hopper is it's loading door. It slides open in such a way that its easier to get the paintballs in without spilling them all. The door really shines in speedball games where its critical to dump a pod fast and without spilling a lot of paint. Also, the clear shell on the one I got is nince, so I don't have to keep guessing how much paint I have left, but you could get a black-shelled one if you're into woodsball and the paint is brightly colored.
If you're serious about paintball or you just want an excellent good hopper, get the eVLution II.
This hopper is the fastest hopper I have used. There is nothing wrong with it. Love how you can adjust the speed of the hopper so you won't waste batteries when you use a slower marker. But when you use a fast marker you can turn it up. I am soon to get a z-board for mine so i can get speeds as fast as the halo for a fraction of the cost.
If you need a fast hopper but can't yet afford a halo this is the hopper for you.
gen-e 2k3 trix
red bolt kit
ndz breech knob
Not made very well
Alright, this is sumwhat fast, at about 17 bps, and can hold a lot of paint, but there are a few major problems: the battery door is complete sh*t, it is the worst deign, i cant beleive it was made like that, the hopper lid is ok at bets, mine was shot off during a game, its a pretty damn big hopper, and over all, a lot of thing have broken on it....the battery door, hopper lid, shells, speed adjuster, and led.
Save up ad get a halo or reloader b, this isnt necesarily a bad hopper, but there are a lot of problems, i have to say im rather dissapointed.

Speed (compared to revy)
Speed (compared to halo b/reloader b)
I've most of the high end hoppers. The Egg II is probably second best in my book. The reloader b is my choice for speed and reliablity. The Egg II blows the halo b and reloader b out of the water in weight comparison and battery consumtion. The speed is mediocre but I can live with it. A huge problem that I would like to point out is the battery door design is retarded. I let my Egg sit here for a few months not even touching it and somehow it manifested a slight crack in the battey door which indicates poor design if it can just crack by the resistance of batteries being loaded. The capacity is good. You can put in the Z board if you choose and yes I have owned a Z Egg II before as well. Price is awsome you can get a new one for about 60$ at your pb store.
All in all, the two main features that put this hopper up there with the other high ends is speed and weight. Pretty good hopper but does need a new battery door design.

Battery door comes loose
kind of tall
i was contemplating whether to get this or the halo TSA, and i'm so glad i got this instead. the TSA ins't a force feed, which usually means it will be less reliable. the evo 2 has a flexible impeller ot prevent breaks and jams, and the feed rate is awesome. i have never had a problem with the performance, but i did have to sand down the feed neck to fit it on my gun. the battery door also came loose, but that's nothing a little duct tape can't fix. i have accidentally dropped it several times, but the only thing that happened were a few scratches. the eye system always turns on when needed, and it also doesn't keep going after you stop shooting
This is the best hopper i have used so far. it is not as expensive as the halo b, but has a high feed rate. it's not too heavy, and it looks cool. i would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a fast hopper.
-Spring return lid could cause cracking, remove spring and it's fine.
-Weak battery door
Allow me to tell you a story.
I have used my halo exclusively for a little over a year, and I have always poked a bit of fun at my teammates for using eggys. I had never used an eggy in a game. I had held them and put them on my gun, but never played a game with them. A little over a month ago, we had a tourney. No big deal, local tourney fun to do, didn't really expect to do that well, seeing as we had always placed last or close to it =(. So we get there at about 6 a.m. while play starts at 9. It's always nice to get there early to get your stuff ready to play and then help the refs, stretch, pray, and relax before play starts. So when we get there, I immediately get my gearbag out and throw my setup together. I air up my Black Magic, throw some domination in my hopper and run to the chrono, expecting a line. There wasn't. Apparently I am the only one who would rather be "better safe than sorry". I turn on my halo, marker, and air. After hitting my halo button I hear the typical 'burrrr' of the drive cone, loading some nice brittle domination into my feedneck. I shoot, but nothing. I shoot again, and all I get is domination souuuuup! "Oh, no" I think, "It's going to be one of those days." I take off my loader thinking that I am chopping... But my bolt is fine, it isn't stuck in the closed position like what happens to most guns when they chop. Puzzled, I look in my halo... Little did I know the carnage that dwelt beneath my pearly shells. I look in and all I see is soup inside... "OH NOES!". I turn on my halo to feed through the mess and watch as ALL the balls that came in contact with the drive cone just break under the pressure. I take my gear back to our camp and talk to our newly acquired coach and ask him for a backup halo if he has one. He has no halo, but he does have a proto, 2 promasters, 4 e-cockers, and a matrix... helpful? haha, but he does have 3 eggys. So, reluctantly, I grab a nicely custom dyed red/blue accented eggy II with zboard and run back to the chrono. I flick the switch on and start shooting. It keeps up GREAT. Not one skip or dryfire, no starving of my black magic here! I shoot over the chrono, 279, 285, 280. I glance at my thermometer 45 degrees... rare for San Diego, the inconsistency is understandable. After watching a few hundred players at the chrono hurriedly try to fix problems with 10 minutes until their game, our game is scheduled to begin. I used this eggy for 18 games, 9 of which were perfect games and 15 of which, we won. The Eggy kept up with my laning, and was so light that I was able to snapshoot many a frontman out. I highly recommend this loader, heck if I can change my ways, anyone can.
Check review for full effect.
Eggy vs Halo
Halo = faster, heavier, front-heavy, stronger plastic, more durable, different lid, more customizable, MANY more custom shells
Eggy = barely slower but can keep up with stock halo when you get zboard, back heavy, lighter, holds more, little weaker plastic, less customizable, almost no custom shells for sale, easily dyed though

Great hopper with awesome functions and looks. Shoots as fast as the Halo B once you get the Z board in it. To get this hopper with the Z board is still way cheaper than a Halo B too. Holds a good amount of paint for an electric loader and the design of the front door is great. It also sits great on my cocker with no sand and sits very low fro a small target. Iv'e had only one problem with it and that is the front door can be hard to open with gloves at first but once you break it in its way better then a regular loader door. Also if you have a fast gun get the Z board at the same time as the hopper because your going to need it.
Great hopper that's better than a Halo B or Ricochet, shoots fast ( once you get the Z board) and is very durable. I give it a 9 only because you really need to buy the Z board with the hopper.
9 out of 10
