2004 System X Type X, Empire Reloader, 32* Universal Drop Forward, 47/3000 N2
Cheap (kind of) for what its worth
Holds ~240 painballs
Slow ( 1-3 bps)(if that)
Held together by snap ons
This hopper is the worst hopper on the market!!! This hopper has so cheap plastic I could take it apart with my bare hands ( It only snaps in place and has 1 screw). It may hold a ton of balls, but why get it if your just gonna break over 50%of them. I got this hopper in my Bonedaddy BL package. Even I was out shooting it and my Bonedaddy BL only shoots 2-3 bps. I am telling you to get a Viewloader Quantum Hopper its over 8 bps if you want a low end but better hopper. I chop balls nonstop with this peice of junk. When I upgraded my Bonedaddy to have an ESP 3.0 Classic trigger I had to get an EGG 2. So just for suggestions I recommend any electronic hopper for any gun from a $40 to $200. But once you get up past $200 you better get an Egg 2 or Halo B or Empire Reloader B. WHATEVER U DO NEVER GET THIS HOPPER!!! GET AN ELECTRONIC ONE!!!
DONT GET THIS HOPPER!!! You are wasting your money your better off going out and getting a $70 hopper that is electronic or agitating.

i bought it online thinking it is a good deal five dollars for a 240 round hopper and i forgot to check the reviews on this product before doing so. Just dont buy it. Get like a regular vl 200. this is one product that is not worth a dime.
Emire Reloader 2(WAY better)
other gravity fed hoppers(better)
This hopper is a POS. It loads slow. Jams WAY to much. Looks like crap. It is cheap but still not worth the money. But it only jams when u shoot fast. If u have a gun that shoots like 4 bps its ok. But if not get an electro hopper or any other gravity loading hopper.
A VL200 with a wad of rubber cement in the feedneck.
Holds more paint than VL200
A pain and a half to laod paint
Patented ball-jamming groove
It's really hard to screw up a gravity fed hopper. Really, these guys are amazing. I've had nothing but good experiences with APP, that's why I didn't even hesitate to buy this hopper. Wow. Go with a VL200 if you want a shake loader. At least then you won't dislocate a shoulder trying to get the paint to load. I did figure out a way around this though. See, the paint gets jammed in this little groove that's supposed to help feeding. I just took the hopper apart so I could work on two halves. I cut a peice of foam board to fit each side of the groove, and superglued it in place. Now it's just a regular non-extra-jam gravity hopper. Did I mention it's ugly as they can make it? What is with the flat top? I know it holds extra balls but NO!
Go with a VL200. I give it a 2 cuz i fixed it up to be a regular gravity hoppper.
Ok, so after i bought this thinking, "wow its cheap AND holds 240 rounds!" I looked on this site for the reviews. I was shocked when I saw that it got a 1.7, so I read a few reviews to see what could possibly make this thing so bad. Apparently this thing jams real bad so to see if it true I decided to test it. For my test I filled the hopper full of paint then held it to see how fast it loaded. To make the long (literally) story short, THIS THING IS HORRIBLE!!! I held it up and 4-5 balls came out fine but then it jammed, so i shook it and nothing happened, I turned it upside down and that seemed to work, but only for 2 balls. I even took a pencil and shoved it up the tube and nothing happened. So I figured that before I complained here i would try a DIY fix. Someones review mentioned that the little grove where the paint is supposed to rush into the marker is where the balls jam so I decided to put something in there to block it thus making my loader an obese VL200, but I couldn't get the hopper open b/c some genius at APP decided to have one screw a standard Phillips head and the other 3 some weird thing that looks like an Allen wrench hole only round. so i guess I'll just have to get something else.
This is basically a gravity-fed hopper that was made without the laws of gravity in mind. And the folks at APP don't want you to change that. I think that the way its supposed to work is that the paintballs roll neatly into the little groove and line up sorta like a magazine, but because of gravity they just fall and get wedged against the balls that are trying to get into the feed tube the normally. sorry APP but this thing sucks

only one that really can be compared
icon e, 32* night stick barrel, ricochet 2k, pmi 3000 psi
To many to fit in this column
This hopper is horrible you cant even get 3 balls out of it
the so called ball channel ,should be changed to the ball jam up channel
the hoopper came with three missing screws and the lid would always fall off and when the lid comes off the shell comes apart
dont get this hopper if its the last thing you do
THIS THING SUCKS!
I want to give it a zero but you cant
Jt grav fed, Kingman's grav fed, 32* grav fed hopper.
sold my t.e.s., getting a shocker w/ vision b4 May 05`
currently using my old spyder shutter
Doesn't need batteries and can keep up with most pump players
Ouch, can't fit it all in here.
Like all gravity fed hoppers, it readily jams, feeds like 5bps, cheap, breaks easily, etc. You shouldn't be allowed to write a review on hoppers like these that are under 5$. you get what you pay for, well.. thats if you paid for it. im thinking of cuting it open, and putting a small motor from a candy toy and making it agitated. i will have one of the most hobo'ish looking paintball marker around (my ol` spyder shutter)
I would give it a 10.. if it would smell better new. but I'll give it average(5) because I feel sorry for it. Its a fat version of a normal grav fed hopper. :'(
This hopper wreaks this hopper has no strneths if i was u i would get a halo or any Electronic hopper u are better to stay with ur stock hopper it isnt as big even though This thing holds an extra 49 i would stay with the stock or buy and electronic.
Ricochet: Way better still clogged
Vl200: didnt clogg
Spyder Rodeo w/ 14'' tear drop lapco clamping feed neck and a 9 oz co2 tank
Dont even think it....
This is the worst hopper you can ever get DONT I REAPET DO NOT GET THIS HOPPER! it bites if you buy it it will only disitpoint you i would go with the vl200 or if you barely shoot anything get a ricochet g2k its nice because you get bounces some times keeping you in the game (it has to be a perfect shot to bounce... but yea please dont waste your money
NO good What soever please dont waste your money on this hopper just buy a vl200 if i could i would give it a .5
This is by FAR the worst hopper ever. I could make a hopper with a funnel and put a cover over it and it would be better. Allen paintball products has some problems. I used this hopper once and then i threw it in my creek(we were playing there)It was a total waste of 5.00 its probably not even worth 50 cents.
