VL Revolution™ is the flagship of the ViewLoader® line. This 200 count patented electronic agitator loader with spring loaded flip cap is the industry standard on the tournament field. Designed for the serious tournament player, the VL Revolution™ incorporates a 12V power agitating system and improved paddle design that provides a much quicker response time and unmatched feed rate. This is the loader to use if you need fast and dependable performance. It is equipped with an internal anti-jam mechanism that agitates the paintballs when the feed neck becomes empty. The VL Revolution’s™ four blade propeller will feed 10-12 balls per second. Two 9V batteries are required. Available in Black Onyx, Diamond Clear, Sapphire Blue, Ruby Red, Emerald Green and all-new Smoke Crystal
The X-BOARD is an all-new circuit board that will upgrade your current Viewloader® 12 Volt Revolution™. The X-BOARD will increase the power to the motor by 15%. This allows your paddles to spin faster, increasing the ball feed rate. The response time between the X-BOARD and the motor is increased by 20%. The faster activation rate eliminates the delay time between the sensor and the agitating effect. As batteries lose energy, the power to the motor is increased more often to allow the motor to run at its maximum power rating. In summary, your 12volt Revolution™ will feed faster and respond faster, thus reducing the chance for a dry fire.
Faster feed rate to minimize ball breakage and dry fires
Sun proof electronics
Moisture resistant protection
Extended battery life
The Viewloader Revolution X-Board is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

-Decent feed rate
-You may out shoot it
This hopper is very good for the money. The X board dosn't make a huge difference but it deffinatly helps. On the down side you'll be buying batteries every time you use it so make sure to have a charger. also make sure you have the lid pressed down tightly because it will pop open during shots. A good hopper for people who don't rely on speed.
If your upgrading guns and your looking for a cheap effective hopper then you can't go wronge with the revy.

-13bps (keeps up with imagine.)
-Too slow for some guns
-lids comes open when playing.
For a gun that shoots 13bps or less this is perfect anything more might have a problem. The lid has to be secured or it will open and you'll lose paintballs (I lost 50). I love the eye it stops feeding when when you stop shooting ( real pain when loaders don't). Better than sound activated so when the guy beside you shoots your loader doesn't feed.

-Feeds 13 bps
-Feeds only 13 bps
I used this loader for years, the batteries last forever in this thing. I never out shot it on my mag or my mechanical cocker. Once my plastic elbow broke and the loader fell off. It cracked on the ground, but that is not viewloaders fault. Recently I put it on my Electronic cocker to see how fast it really is, and I got up to 13 bps. Much lighter than the HALO-B.
For the price this is the way to go. Unless you are playing tournaments with high-end electronic markers. I give it a 8.
Didnt need anyfast hopper until now.

drops paint okay when working.
Viewloader is a pretty good brand . Long battery life.
Very inconsistent. Can be noisy. Not worth the price. didnt drop as fast as claims
Do not get this hopper. just spend a little more and get the eggy, where you will be much happier with. It is overpriced and it it never worked right when needed. it would stop on and off, and i would have to skake my hopper for it to start working like if it was a gravity feeder. it is not worth the 60$. get an evo 2.
Spen ten more and get the faster more reliable evo 2.

Gaps in Feeding

Up until just recently, ive really liked my Revvy. It did what i needed it to. But unfortunately last time i played my gun would not fire because theres was paint just covering the inside of the feedneck and inside the hopper. I have not had this problem with my egg so i think ill just stick to that. If you have a gravity fed hopper now this is better, but if you have the xtra few bucks just buy an egg, it has an adjustable speed if you dont shoot fast.

Not the fastest loader out there
The x-board revy is a great hopper. i have owned mine for almost 3 years, its now a backup hopper to my reloader b, simply because of it not being very fast. but this hopper is my first choice for a backup, if something goes down in my reloader, i know the revy will keep me playing all day. super reliable. never had one go down other then batteries dying. the durability is great, you can throw these things into a wall with no cracks, the plastic is really hard and thick. they are super light as well compared to any other high end loader out there. its probably half the weight of my reloader b, which is the same as a halo. i would say the only downfall to a revy these days is the speed. feeding maybe 14 bps with a x board isnt great, but i like it as a backup.
I reccomend this to anyone who is looking for a great backup hopper or someone looking for an inexpensive hopper for a gun that isnt shooting 20 bps +

Good 1st hopper
Slow (13 balls)
I had this for a long time. I really liked it until I got my faster gun which this one was not the best for. It is very good if you have a slow gun or if you have a fast gun and you have this I would get a new board to make it faster.

People consider them now uncool
I forgot my hopper at home and it was just a gravity hopper so when i got to the field the only had these so i decided to buy one but i was EXTREMLY impressed with the quality of this product. Its quite fast and the electronic eyes work great! The eyes are very responsive and it feed a ball when ever is needed. I bought it at a field so it was a bit overpriced but the normal price is very goood. I know this isnt rele a big deal but the lid is good and see thru so u can see you paint levels. The hopper stays shut very well also. And to turn it on all u have to do it flick a switch. Some people say there out of style but thats just stupid.
If you are looking for a good hopper and dont have 150 bucks to spend...BUY THIS
