To start off i would have to say that it looks cool, and the design is also. But I feel that a normal halo, rotor, pinokio will do just fine if not better. It is kinda expansive and the resale value is next to none.

These are a fantastic alternative for Tippmann users looking to get a motorized loader but don't want to have to remember the batteries to power them. These feed consistently and really are well engineered.

The only drawback I've seen over the years with these loaders is the crappy plastic ratchet that Tippmann installs. Time and time again I've seen these snap at the tooth both on A5s and on those installed on 98s. If there is one upgrade you should get at the same time its TechTs aluminum ratchet. It will literally render this loader unbreakable.

Highly recommended for those that don't have A5s!

Tippmann Sports Cyclone Feed system I love the cyclone feeder, it works really well, it keeps up with my e trigger at 15 bps, howver it uses air or co2 instead of battery so you run out of air much quicker. real easy to install.

I run (2) Tippmann A5's fully upgraded TechT, Aluminum PT, Howizter and Air thru.
One marker with Response Trigger the other w/ H.E.Trigger.
Cyclone Feed System is great with no batteries. I use the X7 Hoppers.
I can run the Response Trigger up to 18bps and the Cyclone Feed keeps up w/o any issues.
The HE Trigger A5 at 15bps and it too w/o any issues.
We typically play capped at 13bps though.
Do need to run a little lower grade paint with a HP Sear Tipper system though, which is typical anyway.
The only time I expierience ball breaks is with defective paint, last year was plagued with new paint issues with multiple mfg.'rs, or with old paint not stored properly.
I don't notice any excessive air usage with the Cyclone Feed System other than Tippmanns are generally a little air hungry anyway.
I just run a slightly bigger Carbon Fiber HPA cylinder, vest mounted, it's not bad.
Playing Woodsball regularly, water doesn't bother a Cyclone Feed System if it gets wet, and I do get wet, (ponds), just keep your paint dry though.
Cyclone Feed is relatively easy to maintain. It is low maintenance and very easy to use.

Great hopper, mine came with the X7 low profile hopper, best part it doesn't need batteries for operation, looks great on my salvo and only problem I've run in to is that it is a little tough to get the lid open in gloves (I wear leather work gloves) but i guess that means its a tight lock and i won't have to worry about spilling paint.
