The Kingman Spyder FASTA18v LED is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I've been using this hopper for about three months now, and haven't had any problems at all. It definately keeps up with my MR-2. I was chopping paint every now & then when using my Revy. I wasn't sure if it was due to the Revy or a weak ball detent; so I installed a Timmy ball stop & upgraded to the FASTA. I haven't had any chops since I made these upgrades. This hopper is very light which is great for scenerio type markers, but I'm sure it will work great with speedball type markers also. It's also pretty quiet in my opinion, which is another plus for scenerio play when you're in close quarters.
I think this is an excellent hopper for the money. It's fast, light weight, & holds alot of paint.
Vs3, stock. Fasta loader. Soon to be Evil Pipe kit
FAST loader for cheap.
Holds more than anything ive seen.
Feed wheel has spokes that are very very hard and unforgiving plastic.
I like my fasta alot, it keeps up with my vs3 as fast as I can fire.
My only problem is how hard the agitator is. Im going to have to wrap electrical tape or find an aftermarket cone or something. Its become a blender twice. At first I thought it was the paint, but just feeling the paddles, theyre just too hard.
I would give it a 10 because it really can load 25-30 bps for alot cheaper than a halo or other, but because the stock paddles are so damn hard, it gets a 8. Might seem harsh, but if it becomes a blender, then the rest of the paintballs in the hopper are useless and dont shoot straight.
I have used agitators and borrowed a halo and an empire
Ion, ndz trigger, cp asa, redz clamping feed neck, j&j s2 14" barrel, fasta loader, lock lid pods
have not broken a ball because of the hopper yet
large ball capacity
The force on the ball stack can push balls past the detents
The first thing i noticed was that after high rates of fire the force of the loader would shove a ball into my stock detents so there would be one and a half balls in the breach. This problem was easily solved by replacing the stock detents with killa detents and never had a problem yet. The orientation of the lid has not caused a single problem all though some people complain about it. i didn't know i could walk my trigger so fast until i got this hopper and its cheaper than a halo or empire. as far as the led version the game timer and low bat indicator was not worth the extra ten dollars or so.
If you are a player on a budget this is the hopper for you good rates of fire and it doesn't sit very high off the gun either and the capacity is a plus for those of us who go through a lot of paint.
I played with this hopper a couple of weeks ago, I bought it as a backup to my halo. I read the reviews on here and thought why not. I was impressed by the profile and the weight of the hopper it is almost like it isn't on your marker. I had my gun set to ramp at 25 balls per second and the hopper was feeding like a champ, no miss fires of any kind. I did run into a problem with broken paint in the hopper and I was impressed that I was able to clean it out (mostly) with a swab and papaer towel. There isn't much to the inside of the hopper. All in all I would say it is a good hopper for a spyder that is. But I think it stands up nicely to my stock halo, both can do the job. Lets be honest who cares about shooting 35 bps when tourny's and most fields will have you capped at 15-17 bps. So the Hopper is a good buy if your on a budget or looking for something that holds more paint.
Could have been more original (Too much like the apache)
Cheap stickers (Kingman - nuff' said)
I've just now seriously got into paintball after years of being a recreational player. I've never had a bad experience with a Kingman product, so I decided to give this one a try. I love it... In the drop test, I emptied the loader in under 10 seconds. (Like that means anything). After the drop test I tried it out with my gun and it works great. I've never chopped a ball with it and it feeds faster than I can shoot so there is never a problem.
Overall, great hopper. If your not looking to break the bank, but still get good quality speed from you loader, try it out. You won't regret it.
Spyder Electra w/Eye and Rocking Trigger,Kingman Fasta Hopper
Tippmann 98 Custom w/Double Response Trigger
Speed-Quiet-Looks Good-Easy to Use.
Lid if your not used to it-Battery Door
I love this hopper, it works great on my Spyder Electra and even my Tippmann 98 Custom! The lid is not a big deal once you have used it a couple of games. The battery door has not given me a problem yet but i feel it will in the future, could be wrong.
I recommend this hopper to anyone who has a fast gun but does not want to spend loads of cash on a hopper!
Doesn't break paint in hopper
Lid is very awkward to open until you get used to it
I was very excited about getting this hopper especially since my last one couldn't keep up with my gun. I opted to get the led instead of the lcd since the only difference is a game timer for an extra 10 bucks. it feeds extremely fast and never breaks paint inside of the hopper.
I would totally recomend this hopper is you have a low budget and want a electronic hopper

first battery operated loader i've owned
Spyder MR2, 14 inch J&J barrel, using co2
Sorry couldn't find any
Agiator breaking paint,Agiator kept spinning and eventually broke 2 of the 4 prongs off,
I"m sorry folks, after using this loader for a little over 21/2 months I never had a good game with it. I kept switching balls, detents, even made a elbow( thinking something was causing it to ot feed properly) I hate to say it but I think kingman needs to go back to the R&D department and rethink this somemore
led is great,
I didn't like the lid at first
This is a pretty good hopper. it holds 230+ rounds and can spit them out f.a.s.t.
It's rated at 30 rbs so it can keep up with almost anything. the led is better than the lcd cuz the lcd really only has a game timer and stuff.(led, one button, one light[on,low battery] and won't break) I don't think it's better than halos cuz it's not tilt activated and all that crazy crap. but definetly better than evo's for it's price.
the lid is a little hard to open, but it has a place or whatever to open it on each side so that makes things easier for quick reloading, plus it will stay shut when you want it too.
I was playing in a very crazy game(don't comment), i wasn't getting anything on the side i was on so I decided to move (I'm a backman) my teamate was getting pinned on the snake so I wanted to lay down some massive head ducking fire. I was shooting like crazy with my rocking trigger and eyes off which was a bad idea. BUT somehow this hopper kept up and i didn't break any paint. I got over excited and i tripped and smakked my hopper on the ground.(don't comment) I was all embarrased and i didn't think about anything at the time. well
when the round was over my freind rushes over and askes if my hopper is alright. I remembered and thought "crap" cuz this is what people fear, kingman products breaking and sucking. But i looked at my hopper and all was well, so everybody there was impressed.
this hopper is good for revenge. my freinds ducktaped it up in a tree.(dont comment either) so when i got it back, i basically shot them all at the full speed it is capable of.
it sucks when your like die ***** shoot two shots then jam or chop.(also don't comment) it loads fast enough to avoid that embarrasment
get it. I can say this kingman stands out from the rest. it is definitely fast, reliable, sturdy. if i had had an lcd screen it probably would have broke so if youre worrying about buying something expensive and having it break, this is for you. picked it up for about $80. I also reccomend led, not lcd.
10 out of 10
