This is a loader capable of a 23 BPS drop test but will only do a max 17 BPS on gun.
230 ball capacity!
18v= 2 9 volt batteries.
No tools nececery to change batteries.
reinforced corragated feedneck.
LCD display game timer battery strength with audible alerts.
Automatic shut off after 10 min.
No eyes, a sensor strip activates drive wheel every time a ball passes it.
This is a great starter loader, it is fast feeding and rather tough.
You realy get your moneys worth from this loader.
If you need a loader that will do more than 17 BPS on gun this is not for you.
The Fasta is more of a starter loader for low end electronic markers but well worth the price tag.

This is the lightest loader i have ever used, that's a big plus. But it's not too pleasing to the eyes. It will do close to 17-22 BPS on gun while performing at 22+ drop test. Construction is nice, seems very tough although i have seen a few broken feednecks.

I traded my old halo b for a brand new fasta, and i will just say right off the bat, i have had a TON of hoppers in my short time playing, and the fasta beats the piss out of all of them. It is very fast and performed great in the tourny that i used it in, it never failed me once. I am very happy with the Fasta, a must buy for all serious players.

I have used this loader for one day and I am looking for one to buy for cheap. I have absolutely had the best time with this loader. I would give up so much for this thing. It's worth it to me. Although the loader doesn't look amazing, I have warmed up to the look. It's very light and feeds faster than anyone really needs to shoot so I have just loved it.

Kingman Group Spyder Fasta LCD Loader Overall its not a bad loader, but at the same time its not a good loader. Its decent for begginer/rookie players but would I never recomend it for anyone else.

i bought one when they first came out. It was my first true electronic hopper. This thing will feed on just about anything you put it on. I had it on my epiphany for the longest time. Electronics are great, the battery life is good.
The only problem i had was that the feed neck broke on me. the first time i contacted a spyder dealer and he replaced it. the second time i gave up and when to an eggy 2.
Excellent hopper for the begginers, but not if your into extreme speedball playing.

Pros: Holds 230 rounds, sturdy, reliable.
Cons: Very big, heavy, annoying sound, takes a while to clean.
I use the LED version of the FASTA. It's a pretty sturdy and efficient loader. Another good thing about it is that it holds 230 rounds, which could last about 1 or 2 games without having to refill. I would recommend this loader to someone who is starting out, or to use as backup. I would not recommend this to someone who is planning on using this as their primary loader in tournaments (unless you are a back).

One of the cons of this loader is the size. Yes, it holds 230 rounds, but at what cost? The drawback is the size. I call this loader my "torpedo hopper" because I almost always get shot in the hopper when I am snap-shooting, because the loader makes your marker off-balance. It isn't as bad for a back player who needs alot of ammo and is harder to hit, but for the front players out there who need a low profile, this loader is not for you.

Adding to what I just said about the hopper holding 230 rounds, it is also pretty heavy for a loader when it's filled. I'm not sure about the weight of the loader when it's unfilled, but once you fill it up with that many rounds, it can get really backheavy (especially when you have a PE 48/30 tank in the back with it, like me).

Another thing about this loader that annoys me is the fact that it takes forever to take it apart to clean/maintain it. There are about 8 different screws to take out to get it apart, but that's only half of it. Putting it back together perfectly is the challenge, mainly the spring on the lid. After 30 minutes of trying to get the spring on the lid again after cleaning everything, I finally decided to just forget about it and open my lid the normal way. I recommend the Torque LM, Rotor, or Prophecy for maintenance, since they do not require tools and they are easily put back together.

The last con of this loader is the noise it makes when you shoot. Yes, it is efficient in saving battery power by only spinning the blades when a round needs to be loaded. But, when you shoot, the blades just start spinning on their own, and just the sound it makes is annoying and loud. It doesn't really affect gameplay, but it gets on my nerves.

Other than that, this loader is decent. Should have gotten a VLocity or a Torque LM instead, though.
