Lock spill proff lid
easy on off
First let me start off that even though this is my first loader i can still say its great compared to other hoppers. this loader is fast and reliable. it rarely jams and when it did it was because i put to much paint in it for any paintballs to even move. the loader is fast and able to keep up with my VS3 that can shoot up to 30 BPS. it also has a very easy lid and its a great price for such a great loader. the loader is also very light weight.
one of the problems i expirienced and my friend had the same one is that the feedneck is too small. the loader leans to the side and offers an easy target for opponents, when it dosnt lean to the side its extremely low profile,
If it wasnt for the feedneck i would give this hopper a 10 but i have to give it a 9. the problem can be fixed though. this though is a great fast reliable hopper and i recomend it for anyone.
The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.

To explain the weeknesses page ViewLoader says this hopper can go up to 23 BPS that is BS ive turned the speed all the way up and it only goes 2 18 BPS which is still very fast considering. This is a very good hopper for the low low price of SIXTY DOLLARS.
Buy this unless you are like Bob Long and crank 50 BPS

This hopper is great. Its faster then my current gun so i have absolutely no problems with speed. Its a little loud but you cant really hear it during a game. It looks cooler then some of the other hoppers available. Its a little heavy, but you dont notice that when your adrenalin's pumping in a game. Its a really nice hopper and i definetly suggest everyone with an e-gun and a crappy hopper to buy this.
This is a good hopper thats almost half the price of the halo, its definetly worth the price though.
Vl evlution II- about the same but without z-board or battery door lock
halo b w/rip drive-better, way more expensive
vl revlution- cheaper, not as fast
vl 200-gravity, why bother
-Evil Omen 2.0
-VL evlution 3
-Draxxus 45/4500 tank
-J&J edge kit
-Very very durable
-battery door secured
-Doesnt break balls, ever
-Weight not balanced, all in the back
-heavier than evlution II
This is the fastest hopper ever produced in it's price range. Just feeding only about a couple bps below a halo b-(stock), and being around $50-$60 cheaper is great. Also I'm fine with 23 balls per second plus I probable cant get over 25 on most markers. The adgitators are very soft withe paintballs and dont shove and throw them down like other hoppers so you wont have broken balls especially if your using stuff like hellfire or various cheap zap paints. The z-board has way better battery life than the y-board used in the evlution II and is also quieter. I have dropped this hopper countless times even on concrete and got no scratches on it.Holds 195 paintballs. Also with the 3 there is a thing to secure the battery holder so no more being scared to dive and have your hopper guts hanging out. Some people dont like the weight all in the back, i don't think its that bad and in the middle of a game all i care about is if i can shoot good which is all this hopper provides. Something i dislike though is the tall feedneck which makes my gun a larger target, but my friend cut half of it off wich i am considering too. It is heavier than the egg II but it is still lighter than a halo.
If you want a hopper for 0-50, get a vl revlution and slap on an x-board, 50-100, Evlution 3 definetly, only choice. 100-150, get a halo, pulse, or vl vlocity.

I bought this with my Diablo Wrath for only $60, an amazing price for a quality force fed hopper. The 23 bps feed rate is plenty fast for semi auto and ramping. I have not yet been directly hit in the hopper so i cannot comment on the durability. This keeps up with my wrath and my friends ion, we have not been able to out shoot it. Speed can also be adjusted in seconds. The only bad things i have to say about this hopper is that the loading door is somewhat hard to open and lock to pour balls into it, although it somewhat acts like a funnel to make sure more balls get into it. Batteries only last about a case to a case and a half, so have some extras on hand. They can be saved slightly my lowering speed, but i do not think it's worth it.
Best hopper for only $60. I got ripped off when i paid 50 for the reloader 2. Very reliable, keeps up with fast guns. Easily the best value for any loader out there.
Ok I got this loader a while ago so I stick it on my pmr and go outside the first thing I notice is that it looks a little cheap. So I turned it on and started to shoot then I noticed the noise when it was loading its really loud also some times it can't tell if the feed tube is full so it just keeps spinning after a while it gets annoying so I was shooting pretty fast and it was keeping up. Compared to the halo it keeps up but you don't get the quality the evo is way to loud.
Good prouduct for the price but if you have the money go with a halo I just dident have the cash

This hopper was a great purchase for me. I bought it for $90- not tooo bad. and love it. I don't see why there are so many people who think that they need to spend all that money for a halo when they coulf buy this. There is no way anyone can outshoot this thing.
Great buy. I give it a 9 because it isnt very well balanced

This hopper is great! its round, its fast and its not over 100 dollars! I have it on my ION and it hasnt let me down once yet. i like how you can lock the lid in place so you dont have to worry about it closing in on you while you are putting paintballs in it.

Lid falls off
Shape puts all the weight to the back
I think this would be a hopper for a ion or impulse or something like that mid ranged.Okay i like how it doesnt give you alot of jamd and it feeds 23+.Put i hate the shape of it it puts all the weight to the pack of the gun and the lid has fallen of three times so buy an extra lid.
Get it for a mid ranged gun like ion or impulse and buy an extra lid.
