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

Proto Paintball Primo I was quite surprised with this hopper. I've used it as a back up on an ego, to lending it to a friend for their spyder, to using it as a larger hopper for my pump. Always performs great.

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!

The only thing I don't like about this hopper is that I have to shake it a lot to get it down the feedneck (I am not overfilling, I only have about 100 balls in there at a time) and it is rather a pain in the ***.

great alternative for pump or a cheap low end upgrade from a gravity for woods ballers that don't want to spend more on an electronic or if you treat your gear like **** and it usually breaks this is good for you. It usually feeds at a decent speed for gravity. I like the innovation coming from proto

The proto primo is a great hopper. I use it on my T2 and it has no problems keeping up with the AT. Occassionally you will have to shake the hopper to get a ball to feed, but not nearly as much as with any other gravity fed hopper. The hopper looks great, but it does have a tall profile. The capacity is average, and the cap seems pretty well made- it opens easily and is see through so you can guesstimate how much paint you have left. I wish there was an available speed feed upgrade available.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone rocking a pump or slower mech.
