If you use gravity fed loaders, this is the only one you need to buy. Put this on my tippman 98 and have never experienced any jamming or having to violently shake my gun to have the paintball feed into the breach. Simple but awesome!

Pros: sleek, great lid, durable
Cons: still have to shake it if theres a lot of paint
The loader is great for any pump player looking to get away from the VL200's. I have noticed i have only had to shake it once or twice. I put this bad boy on a LUXE lol it was the only gun i had around at the time and it DOES NOT do 8bps

I think this would be great for pump players and people who don't want to go out and buy a motorized hopper (people playing wit spyders and such)

the only problems were that its a little taller and swept back then i would like and that if you have a lot of paint in it you may have to shake it but its very rare that you do.

All in all for playing pump it works well

Proto Paintball Primo still dont believe this is a gravity feed, feeds at about 7bps from my uses. Pros: looks 200 capacity shelf to relieve pressure on paint (great when under boring) price no batteries cons:

still dont believe this is a gravity feed, feeds at about 7bps from my uses.

Pros:
looks
200 capacity
shelf to relieve pressure on paint (great when under boring)
price
no batteries

cons:
the feedneck is made for autocockers so it may be too small, i used a clamp and it wobbled just a bit
if you overfill then it doesnt load properly

overall: perfect backup for rec ball players if something happens to your hopper or you need batteries. perfect for open class pump too

This loader is the best loader for the starting player or a pump player.

Pros:

-Price: It is only $16! This is a great value for what this loader does.

-Fast: I think this feeds about 6-7 bps. I put it on my Ego X and set it to ramp to about 8 bps and turned the eyes off. There werre quite a few shots with just air. I turned it down to 7 and I had hardly any air shots if I shook it while I shot. When I turned it down to 6 bps it was able to keep up with minmal shaking. I tested a grav feed the same way and it made about 3-4 bps with a little shaking.

-Looks: From a distance this looks like a dye rotor.

Cons:

-Grav-feed: It of course is a grav feed. Which means that you might have to do some shaking to clear up the balls at some times which is rather noisy if you are a woodsplayer.

Summary:

-If you play woodsball this is a good choice though it maybe slightly noisy at times

-If you play speedball it will not be able to keep up with your gun

Overall: A great beginners/ pumplayer loader

Excellent hopper for woodsball and scenario games where throwing down heavy ropes isn't needed. Feeds a solid 8bps, sometimes a little more if you have some luck, so you won't be left undergunned. I love using it for scenario games so that I don't have to worry about batteries or upkeep for an electric hopper. Great little hopper to keep as a backup too.

Bought this to use on my tippmann originally, but after witnessing the performance, I now use the primo on pump. It can feed fast enough for an auto trigger, and is a fraction of the weight of say like a rotor. The only issue I have using it as a pump hopper is the size. I get shot out lore than I should because of the hopper. But for the price, you can't beat it

This is an amazing little gravity fed hopper. The little shelf they put in the center of it completely helps making sure it keeps a constant feed. Also, it's very durable. I've seen this thing take several shots and it wipes off like it was never there. Get it if you need it!
