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.
Halo - faster, less reliable, may require new detents to work with your marker.
Revy - good ole revy, nice and reliable, just 6-8bps slower than the egg.

Couple revy's here and there
May make your setup unbalanced
Great loader, I enjoyed owning it very much when I did. The only reason I don't have it anymore is because I dropped it, broke the battery door and didn't feel like wasting my time replacing it, so I traded it for a revy+ cash.
But yeah, this loader is very very nice, a nice alternative to a halo I must say. Since with a zboard it feeds pretty damn quick, and doesn't require you to get new detents because this loader,unlike a halo won't push your paint past your detents.
The only thing bad about this loader is it can make some setups very unbalanced, it made my friends Timmy terrible unbalanced, it was very back heavy with his egg and stuby tank.
Other than it being unbalanced on some setups, its an awesome loader, recomend it to anybody who wants faster than a revy but doesn't want a halo.
It is difficult for me to give a long-term performance review because my Ev II didn't last long. It was fine for two days of play, and considering the $85 price tag for the smoke colored hopper the feed performance was pretty good.
However, the lid broke at the pivot point on the left side while it was riding in my trunk in a gear bag. It did not take any sort of hit that I could see, but the plastic simply broke right where the metal screw mounts it on the left side. Very poor build quality, maybe I was just unlucky but I won't look to BE for another hopper in the future.
How is it that some players are rating this hopper a 9 or 10, when in their text they say "it broke" or "the motor burned out"?
I cannot recommend this hopper, and suggest either a step up to the HALO B, step back to the Revolution or maybe give the upcoming Ricochet Apache a try.

Had a motor burn out
Best thing I've done to my gun yet! Feeds paint just as fast as I can shoot; if i ever chop, its because of the bolt or the paint. I did have the motor crap out on my in the middle of one game (it was actually rather amusing because the only guy left on the other team broke the 12vRevvy off his gun about the same time, so we were both limited in how much we could shoot) but it was still under waranty so I got that fixed and had no problem since.
Great buy, you can find this hopper for $80 or less. Best buy if you dont have $125 to shoot a few more balls a second with a HaloB.
All in all it is a great hopper good for any gun, i would suggest it if you have powerfeed i would only use it for vertical feed only. it has the speed of a Halo and it hold more ball than halo, (halo holds 140, evo 2 holds 195) u see the difference. But just remember to sand that sucker down.
same as above just get this if you don't want to spend as much as halo or if you want to get more ball capacity.

This is an awesome hopper. The only thing i had trouble with was when i used it i used it on my friends 2002 Timmy, and when i would pull a pod out to reload, the lid wouldnt lock into place and i had to put the gun on the ground to reload while 5 people were shooting at my bunker. Of course i got the paint in and owned them all :)
This is an awesome hopper, and now that you can get the y and x boards it can keep up with your Angel or Timmy anyday.
Like i said, it is a bit expensive, but if you can afford to buy an Angel or Timmy in the first place i think you can snag one of these.
To people who have non-electric guns, i wouldnt reccommend this, it would be a waste, its really your decision. Your better off saving some cash and just buying a 12volt revvy.
This hopper is great. Really fast and can keep up with your gun. Im hoping to pick one up for my gun at skyball :)
Its deserves a 9/10 only because of the price.
viewloader 200rd gravity-fed hopper, and 12-volt revolution
tippmann 98 w/ double trigger, J&J Ceramic 12" barrel, and centerflag 68ci. nitro, and egg hopper.
nice hard durable plastic, fast speed, cool looks, locking spring door, ball capacity, adjustable speed.
two-piece feed neck (nothing to worry about though.)
this is a great hopper for eighty dollars. i'd reccomend getting a clear one because it looks cooler and makes it easier to tell how many balls are in there. only played once with it, in a speedball course my friends made out of timbers, after a hurricane that occured. my friends had a spyder e-99 and an autococker, and mine was the only one without a ball break (thats a tippmann for ya.) not to put down the autococker because the balls used were not so good. not to diss the spyder either, because i'm thinking of getting a spyder phoenix soon.
i'd definitely get the egg, even if your gun shoots 14 or 15 bps, it's always better to have a faster hopper. also, you might be wondering why i have an egg on my tippmann. to anwser that, i'm just holding it there untill i get a faster gun which will be soon. i'm sure it'll do fine on that too. get the egg! it's excellent!

too small for my Matrix's feed neck
Does not tell u it is on
This is a very great product. It is very fast and can keep up with my Matrix fairly well. It has a nice load capacity, and is pretty light. However, tests that were done show that a fully loaded HALO and a fully loaded EVO wiegh EXACTLY the same. Go to matrixowner.com for more details. So if you want the extra bps, get a HALO.
This is a very reliable hopper and I have not had any problems with it. no broken lids, or broken necks, or broken boards, everything is working just dandy. I just wish that when it is on, there is a red light that shows me that it is on, but there isn't...
It has happened to me twice when I think that the hopper is on but it is not and I get a chop. Oh well, just need to be more careful. And the Lid is awsome. I don't know why people don't like it, but it has saved my ass. I was at a standup and a guy from the snake came to bunker me while I was reloading, swung my gun around and shot his ass before he knew what had happened. Did not loose a single ball while I swung my gun around because the lid smacked back into place because of the spring.
I am very happy with this product, get it if your gun is too fast for a revy. If you think that you really NEED a Halo, then get it, it would not hurt you.
-feeds very fast
-easy to put paintballs in
-i never outshoot it
-broke ball in once, i closed the lid to fast (my fault)
-sanding it down
The Evolution II is a great loader. i got it like a month or two ago and have been 4 times and the loader hasnt broken one ball or been the cause of a ball break yet. like i said i never outshoot it or anything. one more thing is that it tilts your gun back a little (some people like that).
if you have the money (only like $50 - $60) get it!
This hopper is GREAT!!! It is fairly quite, keeps feeding quick to fire my marker in full auto without any hickups. The way you load in more paint takes a little getting use to but, I like it a lot better now that I am use to it. It may not have some of the feature of other powered loaders like a game timer and rate of fire stats but it's performance makes up for this.
This is a solid product that I would HIGHLY recommend this hopper to anyone. This hopper is a must if you have any marker that requires a fast, steady fead of paint.
