I got this hopper brand spankin new with the V35, and S4 drive cone installed. I get out my gun and some paint thinking that I will be able to just shoot ropes. I have a T-board set at 24bps but i still put the hopper at 35bps. I start to shoot with eyes off and It'll shoot a ball at first, then skip about 15 shots and shoot maybe 2 or 3 more balls. I turn down the ROF on my gun to about 20, thinking that the v35 halo should be able to keep up with a stock Halo. Still, i get skippage. Turn the gun down to 18bps and it'll finally keep up. I finished the tourney, and was at home with about 250 balls left. I already changed the batteries about 4 hoppers before that so they're still okay. I put my gun on 18cps and turn on the hopper. SKIPPAGE!! I turn it down to 13cps on my gun and i still get skippage. I can out shoot this hopper in semi. I borrowed my friends stock halo, put it on my gun, and it'll do about 20-21bps absolutely fine, no gaps. WTF!
I think, no, i know that i got a lemon because i've used v35's before and they will easily keep up with my gun. Still, thats $140 on a hopper that has $60 performance. It gets a 3 because at least it kept up with the 15bps tourney i played.

Unbelivable, u just need 2 make sure that u are on the corect settings
Eats up batterys like crazy
I was hesitant when I first bought this board after reading 2 or 3 reviews, but i broke my stock board so i really had no choice... it came with simple installation and programming instructions, i initially removed the od pulley to test the actual jump of speed.... wow, a product that works =) i reassembled it and drop tested it against my bro's vl sf, it wasn't even close i will definitely give it a 10/10 unless future problems arise
Definantly buy it again in a heartbeat

-Speed -15 BPS rope very constant -Adjustable Speed
-35 BPS rare to attain even with new batteries
I bought the V35 mostly because I wanted to improve 15 bps pb ropes. Which this product definately assisted me to do. But 35 bps is hard to attain, personal drop tests put it at 28-30 bps. But no doubt with a lithium battery or some other device you could reach 35.
I was dissapointed as just recently after months of use that the green led light has burnt out. The red remains functional but unless you know how to program the board well, having the green led burn out could mean the board becomes useless to you.
I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to maintain a constant 10-20 bps stream, but not recommended to absolute speed freaks.

None really if u get hit on the board by a paintball your basically screwed
This board is fast and you can easily quickly change the bps your feeding and the instructions and easy to read and instalation is easier . took me like 10 mins to put in and start screwing the shells together but when installing make sure u test the board first so u dont have to unscrew it all over again and start over
My conclustion is is recommend this to any one who has a high ROF gun and the halo stock isnt quite doin it for ya ... or if u just broke the board :D
This is the best board for a hopper i have evered used. I like it more than angry, because angry is very un constitant and it is very unrelaible. It is very easy to install, and can be done in 10 minutes easy. I did a drop test next to my Bro's Vlocity, and it beat it, but it was close.

can help save batteries
easy to install
dont really need it
My friend bought one of these for his halo. He leaves it on level one when hes just shooting around to save batteries. When he gets his angel back with its predator board he can turn it up so he can rip. I was personally impressed by the speed and its great braging rights to have a hopper that can go 35 bps since your never going to actually need it.
If you got the extra money or some day may actually use the extra speed pick one of these bad boys up there only 27 bucks now. 10/10 b/c it works just like it should.

Red Halo B with rip drive and victory
I am totally happy with the victory board. I shoot a NME LE and need the victory in order to keep up with it. I'm out shooting freestyles and the halo gives me the speed, ajustability, and snap it takes to win. The weight is not a problem, go to the gym.
Basicly if you are goin to be shooting fast, and i mean ROPES of paint then you need this. It won't starve your gun no matter what you have and its very well priced. Besides when everyone else is running to a bunker and you can just walk the feild picking people off with ropes of paint its worth every penny.
Black Proto Matrix, Halo B w/ victory Board, CP roller trigger... the works
SUPER FAST!!!!!!!!! 6 different settings!
Heavy, eats batteries
When i got this chip in my Halo B, i was truly amazed. I no longer had to worry about the speed of my hopper holding me and my gun back. This is buy now product! The only bad thing about this chip is it will chew through batteries like none other.
This is a very good product, that is if you dont mind buying batteries. I HIGHLY RECOMEND IT!

Drops paint like crazy

Improves speed of marker by feeding faster
I installed the board aired up my gun and loader my hopper with marbalizer and wow I was shooting faster than ever. I went through 500 in a little less than five minutes. I was impressed at how much the board boosted the preformance of the hopper and the marker. Even when i expirimented with ramping i could not out shoot my hopper.
All i can say is get it it is amazing. You cant go wrong with this product
I give it a 10 because it has improved the preformance of my marker and my hopper
