The Viewloader Force loader now brings force feed technology to bear in new price points, completely obsoleting agitating loaders. With force applied you can achieve faster out of the gate speed that allows you to get the critical shot in when you need it. This robust loader sets the new standard for the vast majority of players, offering speeds of up to 18 balls per second, a capacity of 200 paintballs, and the strength of the Viewloader name.

I picked this hopper up at my local Sports Authority as a back up for around 30 bucks, and after using it, I can definantly say that it has earned its place in my gear bag. I had to switch to it for the first time one day when my prophecy needed repairs, and it performed well. Right off the bat, I noticed how loud the thing was. I mean this hopper whirrs like crazy. It was a little annoying at first, but I did get used to it. I would imagine that would be quite a disadvantage though if you were playing woodsball and were trying to flank a position or something, but for speedball, it didnt make that big of a difference. During the games, the hopper had a really consistent feed rate, and it never jammed, which was suprising to me. During one game however, I ended up laning and had to reload, which I had a hard time doing because of the small lid, and about half my pod ended up on the ground. After 3 cases of paint, I had only had 2 breaks, and no jams.
This hopper performs really well for the price, and is consistent and reliable.

Modded VL Force Hopper
Decently fast (15-20 bps)
Long Battery Life
takes only one 9v battery
Keeps spinning the whole time unless you do the mod (read review!)
well to start off this isnt as bad as some people make it out to be. If your looking to upgrade from your stock hopper and are on a budget get it! although it doesnt have eyes there is a mod on youtube (not my video) that works great
You spend about $3 - $5 on the switch then wire it and there... you have it so that it only feeds when you need balls
Over all if your looking for a cheap hopper get this one but make sure you do the mod!

Big and oddly shaped
Playing on the field the motor would constantly give away my postion in the woods and would require me to turn it off during sneaking around but would constantly feed.
I tried using it with marbs and evil on my g3 and that lead to tonnes of barrel breaks
But on the good side the plastic its made off feels good and solid dosnt require any special set up before play. The Paddles when the feed neck is full will rise up and go over paintballs in line
Not recommend with thin shelled paint and use in woodsball unless you turn on and off
I give it a 4 because it works but not the best with all around play

Lid is harder to close.
I saw this hopper at Meijer on close out at a redicoulously low price. So I bought it for a backup for my son and I.. I gave it a try this weekend, and I must say that I was pretty impressed at how fast and reliably it feeds. It kept up with my Fusion just great. It never jammed, and it had a good capacity. It also seems to be make out of very durable material. Unlike the TSA which has the sound activation, the VF Revolution Force Hopper runs all the time. It runs very loudly. It is certainly louder than my TSA or my son's Egg. It is even as loud or louder than the Extreme Rage. I never thought that the noise would be a real issue, until one of our players told me that my hopper gave away my position! It was early in the game and not much shooting was going on. Reloading on the field was O.K., but the angle of the hopper's mouth is a little weird and the lid is very hard to close. You must slap it pretty hard. Again this is much different than my TSA. The hopper sets up very high! It is probably 3 inches taller than my TSA. I took a couple hits to the hopper at this outing.
Another picky complaint is the way you need replace the battery. You must remove three screws pop open the hopper, put in the battery, and then almost hold the hopper upside down to get the thing back together while keeping the battery in place. Good thing it only takes one battery.
If you are looking for fast feed rates at a lower price this is a very good hopper. Among the entry level hoppers I would consider this one of the best. Some of it comes down to personal preference. But if you want to spend less than $50, you can't go wrong buying this one.
WGP Trilogy Competition
Viewloader Force Hopper (modded)
Same internals of Egg2, except for the fact that it has no eyes.
Kind of big.
On/Off Button gets stuck sometimes.
I bought this hopper because my viewloader revolution stopped working. It feeds 18 bps continuously. I got tired of the button getting stuck on me so i modded it. I removed the button from it and put it in the grips, and extended all the wires, to make the first ever grip sensitive hopper.
Buy this if your tight on cash and need a fast hopper, mod if you are serious in the sport.
I have had this hopper for about the months now and i really like it a lot! Its very fast for the price you buy it for. I think it feeds like 18-20 bps and i only bought it for about 20 bucks. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to play in woodsball games, they come in camo and black. You could also use it for Speedball too if you are just trying to save little money.
Gravity fed Hopper. Got fed up with shooting blanks
16" All American
Tippmann 98 custom
88/45 pure energy nitrogen
I got tired of shooting blanks with my hopper that came with the gun so i decided to invest in a new one. I got all excited right when i opened it to test it but then i saw it didn't come with batteries, i didn't really see that so i said alright rode my bike to cvs to get some 9v batteries and tried it out. I saw how loud it was dude i got a ported barrel to get quiet now i have my hopper to give me away.
Overall i do not in any way suggest this hopper. Its very heavy and loud it does the purpose and its cheap but i would save up a little bit longer to buy a better one
Spyder Pilot or Sonix
Modded Viewloader Force Eyes or VL200 gravity feed.

No current mods on the markers, soon to come though.
Quick - should keep up with you.
Holds a decent amount of balls - 200.
See my review, but
I bought this thing for 25 bucks cause it was cheap and that was it. I needed a hopper to keep up with my pilot, and I got one. However, this thing was loud as hell. I could easily see it becoming a blender in the right conditions. That said, I found a way to modify it, putting a "bend trigger" in it, much like the new Tippmann ssl-200. You can youtube how to mod it.
Modded, this thing works like a pro. Runs 18+ bps and stops the annoying noise from it constantly feeding. I bought this with the intention of upgrading to a better hopper in the near future, but now I think I'll stick with it cause it works just as well as the higher priced ones.
Unmodded, I don't really know how I would get by with this. Woodsball would be impossible, its just too noisy. A loud indoor field may be enough to cover the sound, but thats about it.
Good as a starting electronic hopper, or if you mod it you can compete with the big boys of the industry.
Modded - 9 out of 10 - Simply because it isn't perfect, it is still rather bulky and it is a pain to change batteries.
Unmodded - 6 out of 10 - It is just too noisy and eats batteries like crazy, which are then a pain to change.
I'll average it to an 8.

Pretty Fast Loading
Not one Broken ball
sometimes you forget to turn it on
Rattling when you play
Well im a newer paintballer. Ive been playing for bout 7 months. This was my first hopper and well, it works pretty good. Its great for begginers because its very cheap. Not one ball broken actually. Yeah it is very loud though. You cant really sneek in woodsball with it because of the noise. Also what i find the most annoying is that it constinently rattles!!! I kills me!! It feels like theres a rock in it but its actually the battery. I also sometimes forget to turn it on. Kinda wastes my Co2 but i dont pay attention very well like that. Not a bad hopper but not the best hopper
I would reccomend this hopper for begginers and for people who want a great buy. Its very cheap and its a promising hopper to last you for bout a year or so.

This hopper is great for the budget baller. If you are like me, and can afford a good gun but....cant afford a good hopper, then i guess it would work for you. Its a decent hopper, not much more to say. If you dont like the sound, then turn the motor off. If you dont like to turn the motor on and off, then dont get this hopper.
I like it, its about preference. If you dont like it, stop being a cheap skate and put $30 more in and get a hopper with eyes.
