The new lightweight SSL-200 loader with 200 round capacity features Bend Sensor Technology that delivers up to 15 BPS. The Bend Sensor only operates when the marker is fired to improve efficiency and prolong battery life. The SSL-200 low profile design also features, LED on/off low battery indicator, quiet operation, adjustable O-ring neck to fit most markers and a snap fit wide mouth lid.
The Tippmann Triumph SSL-200 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

The SSL-200 is a value electronic hopper and will take a beating all day long. I used it for a full day of play with my team and it performed amazingly. This hopper kept up with about 12 bps consistently and did so very quietly and looked good in the process. This hopper will not disappoint you for what it is, if all you're looking for is a dependable electro at a great price, like $50, then definitely check this out.

Tippmann Triumph SSL-200 hopper
ON ORDER: PPS Brass barrel, Hammerhead Barrel Kit
narrow frontal profile, fast, effective agitation/feed, single 9v battery, plastic stronger than Egg
plastic not as flexible as unagitated hoppers like the Archon
First day playing with this, about 500 balls through it.
I shoot a heavily upgraded Smart Parts SP-8, previously with a Viewloader Evolution II (Egg II) that claims 19bps.
SPPL rules don't permit electronic markers to use any hopper that advertise a feed rate over 15bps. I bought the SSL-200 to remain legal and after looking at reviews for a number of other hoppers in the same speed range.
First of all, the SSL-200 has a very nice, narrow frontal profile and the surfaces are nicely contoured which will probably aid in bounces. The plastic is somewhere between the very brittle Egg and the somewhat softer plastic on typical field-rental, unagitated hoppers. (The Archon comes to mind). I feel more comfortable with the SSL-200's durability than I do my Egg.
The battery door on this hopper comes off very easily but doesn't have any tendency to open on it's own. A single 9-volt battery goes in "flat" - parallel with the ground.
There's a single pushbutton and an LED on the back of the unit. The LED lights green when on and batteryy OK, red when batteries are low, according to the literature (I haven't burned a battery up yet but I can confirm it does light green when on). Each time the rear button is pressed, the motor activates for a moment. Noise level is similar to the Egg but a bit more "growly" - still very quiet. Unlike the Egg, once your hopper is empty, this hopper won't "WHIRRRR" and give away your position.
The "bend sensor" is a little flexible finger in the ball outlet. Each time a ball (or finger) "twiddles" this, the motor activates and rotates an impeller/agitator. I don't think this qualifies as "force feed" like an Evo II but it seems very effective none-the-less.
When I set my SP-8 (with stock board) to ramping mode and got it going, this Tippmann hopper did very well keeping up. There were a few hiccups - perhaps one in 20 or 30 shots would stutter slightly as the hopper caught up. I had the eyes on so the marker would only cycle when it was properly fed.
I haven't clocked this hopper yet but, subjectively, it is very fast. With an aftermarket board set to cap ROF at 15-bps, I'm quite comfortable this hopper would not be a liability.
The Triumph SSL-200 hopper gets my highest recommendation.
If you want an excellent hopper that lets you shoot an electro' while respecting the letter and spirit of the SPPL rules, you won't be disappointed.
If you compare it to a Halo, Evo III, Apache etc, it doesn't keep up. That's not the point. This hopper is the best in it's class - legal 15bps hoppers for use on electros in SPPL.

Kingman Spyder Pilot with ACS Delrin Bolt, HP, 14'' Proto Barrel
Super Fast, bend sensor technology is AMAZING, low battery indicator, look COOL!
Ummm, let me see............ that's it?? ;-)
This is an amazing Hopper! I honestly couldn't believe a hopper in this price range could really do 15 bps! I can do 13 with my Spyder Pilot so I thought, well, if this baby can do 15 bps that would just be perfectly fine, but we'll see abaout that... When I tested the hopper, I just could't believe those balls fly through that tiny weel that fast!
The battery door is really esay to open, compared to other hoppers, and the battery is put into the hopper in seconds (had some bad experience with the VL Quantum!!! Another great thing about it is it totally quiet and only goes on if you fire your gun! So you can't be hit by other who know exactly whee you are just because your hopper is sooo dammmm loud... ;-))
Well, it doesn't need a lot of battery energy, a battery is enough for a couple of days of excessice paintballing! And I REALLY appreciate the low battery indicator, which is amazing!
This hopper, compared to many others (especially eggy ones) really looks awe-inspiring on the field! Just have a laught about some of the other people's hoppers and enjoy having one of the coolest hoppers ever! Additionally its super fast, it DOES 15 bps, is super silent, I can't live without Bend sensor technology anymore (that's so great!!!) and it has an amazing low battery indicator and finally: it looks coooool!!!
Disadvantages? I really can't think of any. Since this hopper is meant for all markers under 15 bps it's a perfect hopper for all semi-professional guns/markers! Just buy it, honestly, this hopper changed my Paintball life!
Lightweight, dependable, efficient and sleek design
The Triumph sticker started to peel off almost immediately.
Although I have only used two other brands of loaders, I believe this is the best one on the market today. It is light and it has never failed to feed the paintballs into the firing chamber. I don't need a loader that feeds 20-30 balls per second-- I would go broke buying paintballs if I played like that. And at $60, the price is right. My family and I have 3 of them and they all work. I also like that the loader comes with various sizes of O-rings to accommodate different feed tube diameters.
The Triumph SSL-200 is an excellent loader. It is a solid performer and an outstanding value.
Did several drop test with scorch paint took about 19 secs for about 200ish constant feed in tests. i have expended about 400 rounds from this hopper and have only chopped one and was because of my gun. other times my MR1 just uncocked itself. i was getting about 10 bps from my MR1 when testing ( I was not shooting regulation though).paint will sometimes catch in the front when shooting downwards expect this hopper to double feed on most semi-auto markers. (ex. castle to ground)
This is the peferect hopper for any MR1 owner. if u have any questions look me up in the fourms.

Awesome Design and Very Fast
I played a scenario game at Smakzone with the Triumph SL200. The Triumph easily kept up with my Ion Pro. I have tried it before with a Halo TSA or Empire Reloader and they couldn't keep up. I would have to give the Triumph a 10 for speed and looks.
I would recommend this hopper to anyone. It is one of the best looking hoppers and fastest for the price.
