VL Orion, 11" custom barrel, Pure Energy 20 oz CO2, VL 200 rd. hopper.
Feed rate , Lid stays closed, Ease to clean, Color, Price
Height off of gun, Needs to be shaken to unjam balls
This hopper is great for a first. The actual price is very cheap at about 5 bucks! The neck is almost to long, that you might want to cut it down so that you keep a lower profile. The lid doesnt open unless you happen to hit it on something. Sometimes the balls will get stuck, so you have to shake it, but no big deal. the feed rate is resonable at about 5-6 b.p.s. just take out the 7 screws, and its that easy to clean, just wipe it down. The black color lets it blend in to most surroundings.
I recommend you buy this product, because the price is great if you dont have 100 bucks to spend on an electronic one. The reliability is great and these characteristics make it a perfect buy.
I got this hopper because I wanted a new one because the tippmann hopper was all black and you couldnt really tell when you where out of paint. So I decided to get this one because it was clear.Occasionaly it would jam but all you have to do is shake it and it will be back to normal. Also its clear so you know when you run out of paint.
Cheap it works jams a little but just shake it and it will be back to normal

Brass eagle 45 and ricochet (doesnt even compare but those are the only to hoppers ive used
xtra-richochet 2K hopper-sprint trigger frame-32* springs
(its the worst gun ever I'm getting a 98c)
Great for begginers.
Had to buy an elbow.
I have used this hopper off and on with different guns.All of those people that have said this hopper stinks because u were useing it on any electric or high end mech. are wrong! You should only use this on a low end mech. marker or pump. I can shoot 6 shots a seconds on this and not have one break. If the lid opens on you then use duct tape! Duct tape has 1001+ uses.
-Black or somtimes clear
-Holds alot of paintballs
-Wont break when shot
-Had to buy and elbow
Had no bad problems with this except i didnt have an elbow on so the hopper fell of.
Buy this if you have a loe end mech. marker. If you have an elctro or high end mech. get a revy or something. Those are without a doubt better simply because they are AGITATED!!

This marker is great for pumps or if u are jus beginning. it can work for some semi aoutos. if u shoot faster than 7 bps dont buy this loader.it is very easy to take apart and clean . in the time ive used it, it has only jammed once and that was with only about 10 balls left in the loader. jus give it a quick shake and it will be fine. or jus dont run out of paint. good for beginners and great first hopper.
Works good for a gravity loader
Does what u will expect it too

~Clear(one I have)
~Holds 200 paintballs
~Very Sealed lid
~None so far
My friend has the Quantum, and not to brag or anything, but if someone offered me a Quantum, I'd have to stick with the VL 200. So far, when I was playing, no paintballs fell out of the hopper because it is sealed shut. The clear lets me know when I'm about to run out of paintballs and grab my pod.
Definitely get this hopper for guns such as Xtra's and any other semi guns. It is a great hopper and it will never let you down. Go for it.
It feed's about 8bps so it's ment for slow marker's but i use it on my tippmann 98 .
5 buck an't bad .
light weight cheap hold's 200 ball's use it as a back up or just let your freind use it .
But it doe's it's job .
Good for new people .
Tippmann Custom 98
PMI Piranha G2 EXT
(hey both were free dont bash on me!)
I cant really bash on a hopper for not being agitated so I wont. This is probably the best gravity fed hopper out there. Most stores sell this kind, so it wont be hard to find them. I think they onyl come in black and clear but i'm not sure.
If you have a mechanical marker, then this is for you.
VL 200 rnd
Catalina 10 oz co2
Zeus G1 for back up
Feeds Balls Well
Lid is pretty sensitive
Well this hopper serves it's purpose. It feeds the balls, it can take hits. It is pretty strong, doesn't fit well over feed neck, so you must have an elbow to keep it in place. If you have a marker that is made for more the speedball player, you should probably look into an agitated hopper. This hopper is good, but for being quick, it may chop a few times.
Good for a slow rate of fire or the person who doesn't/can't shoot fast.
Bad for the person who likes to use his paint. Pretty good hopper, would reccomend it for a Tippmann and other slow markers. It is great for pumps.

Well I got it with my first gun and it worked great (mostly cuz I was using a pump). When I got my spyder Xtra I noticed I was shooting alot faster (duh) and cut quite a few balls. I then knew my max ball limit and was careful not to out shoot it. On another small flaw I remember having to rattle the balls around inside to make them exit down into the elbow; but that didn't happen often. It was very cheap and worked great, and that is a huge upside. It was light and slim and balanced out well with my gun. The lid is great and never pops open out on the field which eliminates the factor of loosing any balls from the hopper.
Overall this is great loader and keeps up with many semi auto guns (perfect for spyders). To tell the truth though it still reminded me of a rental hopper.
-Lid likes to come open to easily
Ok I got this hopper with my first gun that I bought from a friend. It is cheap and I am poor, so what was a noob like me suppose to do. But it feeds fine as long as you dont wanna shoot long bursts, and have a gun like my mech spyder. Defenitley do not get if you use any type of elctronically operated trigger sort of gun.
What can I say, if you are in desperate need of a hopper get this. Only about $4. Or if you are poor get this too :-).
