-Its small and light weight
-Easy to see balls
-Easy to fit in pocket
-Tends to jam with too many paintballs.
-Lid pops off easily.
Its an OK hopper for just messing around in your backyard or at a crappy little homemade feild. I bought this hopper just so I would get better at making my shots more effect because I will carry only 50 paintballs. The feedneck jamming problem was easily fixed by filing down the edges around the opening of the feedneck. I'll keep it just as a backup hopper for messing around but I wouldnt suggest buying it for anything more than that.
Buy it just for practicing but dont expect too much out of the product. (It is Brass Eagle:P)

Can fit in your pocket
Does what its suppose to
It is white
I really thought this was a good little hopper for pracitce or maybe woodball... Its nice but the white stands out....lucky me i had spray paint. I really thought it was nice and a low profile little hopper before i got my TSA.. Now it sits in my bag if there is a problem with my hopper
I really dont think any pro would use it but it is a great hopper for people who dont yet have a good hopper...

Does what its supposed to
Well, there's not really much to say. It is a 50 round hopper made by Brass Eagle. You don't really have to shake it like most other gravity fed hoppers. It looks nice. It's easy to load, opposed to the older 40 round ammo box with the small loading hole.
If your looking for a small hopper, get this one. I am giving this hopper a 10 simply because it does what it is supposed to.
Small, low profile
good for sim or sniper
cheap about $4
plastic feels weak
sometimes hard to pop lid on/off
I bought this for my pro/carbine to be a sniper hopper, because a sniper shouldn't have 200+ rounds, right? So I use this piece of crap for the first time and I feel like such a dumb*** because I'm out on the field shaking my whole gun every few shots, so I'm pretty much screwed and I look like an idiot. I know that I wasn't out and I could tell it was jamming because its see through. So anyways we use this hopper for handicapping good players now.
I wouldn't buy this again. I had quite a few problems with it. Its cool that its small but it doesn't make up for the negatives. If you want a small sniper hopper, look else were.

I use this hopper on my 98 custom with the Raider M82a1 from opsgear.com and i have had no trouble. For what i do the forty rounds it REALLY holds are plenty. It really does add a sense of reality to the game if you play woodsball and scenario games because the reload is about that of the real firearm. However the lid is a little weak but nothing camo duck tape can't fix. Oh and it needs to be painted OD.
Overall a fine hopper for the patient sniper who makes every shot count.

Won't last long if you stupid enopugh to put it on a electronic gun
Ok first f all this thing is better then a VL200! it was free from my friend b/c we werew acting dumb a VL200 is another name for crap for $5.00. Please do not get me wrong if your using this hopper please to not be to serious or iwill be forced to smack you. If you suspect this hopper to keep up with your High End gun your RETARDED this is a hooper just to play around with a cheap VL or pump gun. If you only have a hand full of balls and you use a VL200 iit is great.I am not going to suggest this to anyone unless you want to be stupid or if you wana shoot a blade i works just like a gravity feed hopper just smaller.
Regular VL200, PMI 150 both were better quality higher grade and harder plastic, both had standard spring open lids with a good hinge unlike this product
Tippman 98 custom with Flatty, response and drop, PMI Traccer pump with 7oz tank -stock
I like the idea of this hopper nice and small for my pump gun
The hinge is absolute crap, and the plastic is weak
I really lke the idea of this hopper small and compact for the pump gun, but the lid makes this a poor product, the hinge broke almost immediatly, I would pay 10-15 for a little hopper like this with a good spring loaded hinge like a VL200, or any other modern hopper.
Second what's with the fin out the back? is this supposed to look like a fish?
Don't buy it, keep looking. As cheap as it is, it will end up in the garbage due to lid failure
I used the stock loader (200 balls) That came with my gun.
9 Oz. Brass Eagle Tank, 11" Black Panted Barel, No trigger guard (Sawed off), Painted entire thing olive drab.
Balls tend to bounce off due to the egg shape
Light Even When Full
Annoying brass eagle logo on side
Hard to take off
The hopper is cheap, about a buck fifty where i bought it, but i guess you get what you pay for. It's MAX capacity is 75, but it jams a lot at that. Smacking the side of the hopper or shaking the gun can help, but it's too much of a pain to do in the middle of a firefight. It's also quite durable, i got mine ran over in a car before, and it still looks ok. I have some problems with this too. The lids too cheaply made, The brass eagle logo gets annoying, and it's a pain to take off, but i guess that's good.
I would buy it if you dont have lots of money for a loader (Like me), But if you do have the almost 100$ to buy an evolution, do it.
-Can be used to store ammo shot from opponents (what a nifty trick)!
-Hard to snap lid
-A structural weakness
This loader has the amazing ability to catch opposing player's paintballs! One game the loader took a hit right on the top. I was amazed to see I now had 41 paintballs in my hopper instead of the 40 that were previously in there (I never got a shot off). Unfortunately all the paint inside conglomerated into one large 41rnd liquid glob thereby converting my paintball gun into a crude CO2 powered air brush.
For $3 you really can't go wrong if you need a small hopper. The hopper will break if it is hit on top by a paintball traveling at 280 fps. It gets 1 for quality + 3 for the $3 it cost.

Nice little hopper. Perfect for the pump players. Perfect for my pump because it gets 45-50 shots per 12 gram and the hopper holds 45-50 paint balls. Keeps people's shooting down, does not waste paint. Good all around. Spray paint it dark colors or cover it with camo duck tape. I did that to my 200 shot hopper.
If you're a pump player, get it. if you're a semi, depends on your style of play.
