I got no where close to 8 bps....I got 2 before it stopped feeding maybe hit like 5 bps tops....

Shot mine for the second time today...Time to just throw them out. I put an actual shake and shoot on my gun and it did better. The hoppers were worse today probably got like 1 bps from them. So far I've shot these on a pm7, outkast pump, azodin kaos pump, etek 2, and 06 alien remains. Garbage on all of them.

When i first got this hopper i was just like and i still do know. This is a great hopper and I would recomend this to begginer and intermidiate players. This hopper works really well on pump guns and gun that doesnt shoot fast. This hopper needs to be shaken a couple times but I like it. I really recomend this hopper it will help you kinda get used to shooting fast which will be great when you get a higher end gun.

the primo is a great upgrade over a standard hopper. it has channels inside that pre-stack paint. this leads to a much more consistent feed over standard feed hoppers at just a few bucks more. great for pump guns or entry level mechanicals. def would recommend a primo over any low end motorized hoppers (such as the torque or viewloader force.

I originally got the Primo for my victor thinking it would be fine. It does ok, but it's not what they advertised. The balls would get jammed on the top feed shelf and I'd have to shake it really hard to loosen them up. if you're getting a gun that doesn't really require an electric loader, just go with the cheap shake-and -shoots to save money maybe for a better loader in the future.

I used this hopper for pump play, and it is cheap. The bad thing about it is that it sticks up way to high. I used mine for a day and was sick of it only because I kept getting shot in the hopper. If your going for that low profile look...grab a sportshot.

Pros: Cheap, fast, looks
Cons: grav feed
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

I only used this hopper once because shortly after I bought it I saw an Invert 2 and a Carbon Fiber Tank for 50$ and he would only sell them together. (so if you want to buy mine pm me). The hopper was awesome i went from having atleast one chape per round to maybe 1 chop a day and it may have even been a barrel break. It looks preety sexy right out of the box and is ready to go. I would recomend to any pump, mech and even some electric marker players!!!!

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.
