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

Pros: Sleek, Durable, Lid
Cons: A little too Tall
First off let me say that I love this hopper. When I first received it I knew that there was only one probelm, but that will be established later.

Pros-

Sleek Design: Very swept back, kind of has a Rotor-like appearence.
Durable: To test it I hit a little then shot and it was fine.
Lid- Clear, durable, and easy to flip.

Cons- It is a little to tall for comfort so I reccomend doing your best to hide it.

Other "Problems"- It hasn't been able to do higher than 8bps so far. It ONLY WORKS if it gets shaken a little by the gun. So if you have shaky arms then this is perfect for you.

Overall- good hopper for the money, can do 11bps if the gun agitates it a little.
