Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
This hopper can feed up to 11.6 BPS . No batteries to go dead, No electronics to go bad, No motor to burn out & No noise! This hopper works with dual feed ramps inside the hopper allowing the paintballs to feed into your marker without any down-pressure from the paintballs above, this also doubles the "catch area. Unique "Triple Secure Lock" lid Archon has incorporated into this hopper design. This is a new hopper lid design that latches on 3 sides for a much better seal.
Product Availability 
The Tacamo Tacamo Hopper is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Products Used:
VL200 - Personally, I like the shape of the Archon Tacamo better. The Archon hopper also feeds a bit quicker
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5, or 98 Custom Pro A.C.T. w/ the Archon hopper,
48/3000 compressed air,
Tippmann Werks 12" barrel or J&J Ceramic
Strengths: durable plastic, feeds faster than VL200, better looking than (sausage-shaped) VL200, in my opinion
Weaknesses: Nothing other than being limited by gravity
Review: I think that this is one of the best gravity-fed hoppers you can buy. I am skeptical of the manufacturer's claimed 11 bps feed rate, but it does channel the paintballs into two separate "tunnels" away from the other paintballs, which helps it feed a little bit faster than regular gravity fed hoppers, and there is a plastic covering separating the balls in the feed tube from the rest of the paintballs in the hopper (it's kinda hard to describe -- you have to see inside the hopper to know what I'm talking about)....so, this is good for blowback markers.

The hopper is made of plastic, but it seems pretty durable - more so that that of the VL200, for instance.

Also, it's got a nicer design (shape) to it than the VL200
Conclusion: I would recommend this product if you want something different than all of the VL200s you see, and if you want a grav.-fed hopper that feeds a little bit faster. Personally, as I mentioned above, I doubt that it feeds 11.6 bps or whatever the manufacturer claims, but if you have a low-end mechanical gun or just don't want a motorized hopper, then this is a good choice.

Overall, it's great for a gravity-fed hopper - won't get you the bps of a motorized hopper, but good for what it is.
