Viewloader - Revolution (12 Volt) Reviews
Viewloader Revolution (12 Volt) An amazing hopper that has been reliable since I started playing paintball. It holds a great amount of paint and feeds well. I will never get rid of mine.

I love my revvy and I don't think I'll ever sell the thing. Its perfect for use with mech and pump guns, and its very light. I've had it for about 3 years now and I've never had a problem (I even use it in the rain!)

Performance:
-Its kind of slow, mine feeds around 8-9 bps consistently. I usually use it when I'm not interested in shooting tons of paint. I never have problems with jams, and the eyes read well. Holds plenty of paint.

Reliability:
-The shells are very durable, they have a little give to them so you can hit the ground and it will bend a little without snapping (unlike some brittle hoppers w/ cheaper plastic). I use this hopper in the rain and it works every time.

Battery Life:
-Amazing battery life, I don't have any exact numbers for you but this hopper definately doesn't run through them like force feed hoppers do. You won't need to be constantly changing them out. I've noticed that batteries are also alot easier to remove from the revvy than other hoppers. The sliding door on the bottom was a nice little innovation

I've used a revvy since I had my old Spyder Sport, which I think is three years now. I have some faster hoppers as well, but the revvy is always there as back-up. With the x-board and a new set of paddles the revolution can max out around 13bps. Some of the newer shells are fragile, or so I'm told. If you can find some old shells on eBay they're like a tank! I've thrown the darn thing! The downsides to it are the weight and the speed. You can expect a steady 10 bps with some faster bursts here and there. Also, the last couple balls roll around inside before falling into the feedneck.

All in all the revvy holds it's own as an entry level agitated loader.

Great hopper for friends to borrow and it won't break. Decent capacity and durable enough for even new players not diving correctly yet. The field I play for has utilized them for the tournament rentals due to the durability over others in the price range.

This hopper has been around for a very very long time.
Mine has been upgraded with an X-board and a 6 finger agitator to help out on speed a little bit.

The best part of these hoppers is they are easy to use, cheap to use, and work fast enough for semi-auto markers. They take 2 9v batteries which seemed to have lasted me about 10 games (at 3 hours per game) over a 3 year period. Yes, these batteries have been in a long time (but with this hopper, I am careful with how much paint I lay down).

The worst thing that I can say about this hopper are the new style shells (translucent). They break extremely easily when hit in the right spot(mine in the neck area). The older shell style (which I want to say was black) was much better. Think of the old gravity feed hopper VL made, because that's what the old shell was made of. The old shells were EXTREMELY durable; you could literally throw them against a brick wall and nothing would happen.

But, for a cheap, agitator, this is the one. Some people may suggest an Egg or a Riccochet, which are very good as well, but this is typically cheaper in most cases than the other two.

The revvy is a reliable hopper that I always use on my pump markers. It's light enough to not be too heavy for my pump marker, and it is fast enough to where I can't out shoot it with my pump marker.

However, if you're looking to throw ropes with the revvy it isn't for you. It will feed about 10bps consistently, with spikes of 12 bps.
