for all of you that dont realise yet, this is just a hopper. no fancy motor, no counter, no batteries, just a plastic mold with a lid on it. it does exactly what it's supposed to do: feed paint balls. now for all of you out there who cant live without fireing 12 balls per second and have to take only 80 shots to eliminate someone, this isnt for you. if you are a player that doesnt like to spray and pray, and like the very rare skill called 'aiming' then this is for you. it's black so it's not very visible, not a very high profile, and you can drop it without fearing of it breaking. it's also super cheap (like $5). this thing feeds im going to guess the top speed of maybe 7 or 8bps. with my phantom i can get 6bps with auto trigger so it's not a problem. (never chopped without double pumping)
for those out there with you facny electro markers, i suggest a different hopper.
hey, if you like playing slow and are the sniper type, get this. if you have a fast gun and like to shoot fast, get a electric one and quit complaining

32 degrees icon e-marker w/ dropforward and freak jr. barrel.
Cheep, good for beginers, durable, hard to break.
Slow, but for a semi gun its fine.
Its good if you have semi gun and it doesnt break but if you have a gun like mine then you will want at least a vl revolution w/ x-board. when i turned on full auto with my gun it chopped all the balls. so i had to keep it on semi automatic.
Overall strong and good hopper for beginners i reccomend this because its only 2 pieces and it doesnt need batteries.
i like it. it does the job.i took a pair of needle nose pliers and cut the spring so there no tension and the lid dont pop open. i was stoked about that. u can probably reverse the spring so it stays down. its really durable. i've droped it a couple times
i would recomend it to anyone that has a semi and doest try to get 20 bps. it works. buy it if ur short on cash
20oz a/s co2
some stuff coming really soon
lid is weird
I only bought it in case my reloader didnt come by the time I needed to play..
I used one when renting once though..it got jammed a ton and the other stuff I said..
I also got a rock jammed in mine.:P dont ask..
it also looks like it is extremely high mecause it is smaller and doesnt have the block for a revy or reloader..revys and reloaders look lower IMO..I like the lowest rise possible..
it will be fine if you have a slow marker and dont mind shaking it a ton..
-Viewloader 12 Inch Barrel
-PMI 16 Ounce CO2 Tank
-VL 200 Hopper
-Variety Of Colors
-Not Very Fast
This isn't the world's fastest hopper and if you're using it you probably don't need the world's fastest hopper. This is paintball's standard issue hopper. They come in a variety of colors as well. This is the best beginner's hopper out there! It reguires no mantinence what so ever!
Get one if you need a hopper. I see no sense in spending $40 on a hopper that doesn't do anything for you're slow gun!
This is about as basic as a hopper could possibly get. It opens in a basic way, it loads in a basic way, and it feeds in a basic way. No way anyone who is playing competitivly would show up with this, but it's fine for someone who has a small budget.
Unless your a big time player who is willing to fork up some cash for a little bit of an edge, this hopper does the job well enough.

stock e99 avant
check it sweet spot trig
cheap, easy to clean, a good begginer hopper
i have an e-99 avant and when i got my gun it came with this hopper i think its pretty slow because when i switched to full auto the paintballs broke like crazy thats why im getting an electronic hopper maybe a ricochet 2k or ak. i liked this hopper because its easy to maintain and iit conserves paintballs. i disliked it because it was slow and it could'nt keep up with full-auto. remember electronic gun needs electronic hopper.
i think it's pretty good for the price but not something you would want to play tourney ball with.

lid will not stay shut,feed neck weak and bad price for the product
when i got it the feed neck was separated so it was hard to fit it in the elbow and you have to be very careful of the lid, cause it's really irritating to watch all your paintballs fall out and smash on the ground in the middle of the game. Trust me Even if you make sure that the lid is closed tightly, it pops open at inopportune times. I made sure that it had snapped shut, then in the middle of a game it popped open because of the recoil of my shooting. I find that pretty pathetic.
I would not suggest buying this hopper the lid will not stay shut and the neck brakes vary easily. you can get better hoppers for the same price.

B2K2, JJ two piece, vigilante regulator, dye stickies, pyscho ballistics bullet drop
It's cheap, sturdy, and gets the job done
sometimes might jam
It's a standard viewloader, it gets the job done and is very cheap. Everyone has probably had expierience with a viewloader sometime in there paintball days, it gets the job done for many different markers, and can be found at Wal Mart for five dollars. Overall this is a great deal for any paintballer thats just starting out or needs something dependable that will last.
This is a product all paintballers have pretty much used at some time, and it makes a dependable backup for me when i run out of batteries for my egg, just make sure you dont shoot to fast.
