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!!!!

Proto Paintball Primo 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...

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.

What i liked about this hopper was the looks and weight, it was lightweight and easy to fill. And its worth its price.

What i didnt like, was the jamming problem, i am a speedballer, this was my first hopper and i always got a jam after 10 shots.

Other then the jam its a good hopper.

Pros: Nice sleek look, feeds faster than shake-n-bake
Cons: You still have to shake it once in a while
An absolutely great value for just $15. I was tired of trying to unload on a guy but finding that my regular shake-n-bake wouldn't load. For about $10 more, you can decrease your chances of balls failing to load into the neck, and spend less time shaking.

Great hopper, no need to shake. Only issue is lid pops open with spring and can be a little loose, resulting in lost paintballs. I addressed this issue with some tape on the lid edges to ensure tight seal on lid.

Proto Paintball Primo Great hopper if you can't use/afford an electronic hopper. The extra 10 buck is totally worth it over a regular gravity hopper.

Pros: Nice lid, Feeds great for Gravity fed loader, Dura
Cons: Sits a bit high
The proto Primo is a great gravity fed loader for anyone using a Pump, Mech, or even for a backup loader. You can reach about 8bps (give or take) as long as you leave a bit of room for the paint to load. Whenever I do fill the primo to the brim, I immediately begin to see loading problems, so make sure you leave some room for the magic to work! Only con is that the hopper sits a bit high on my guns, but besides that I love this hopper!

Proto Paintball Primo Used on a pump. Good for no batteries. Had to shake it a few times to get balls, but it was alright.
