Need advice for an end all hopper

The topic said it, I need a tank proof, bulletproof, nuclear proof electronic hopper that will serve me till I die. Which one would you recommend.

Money is no problem, I want a longest serving loader. Thanks!

Get a 12v revvy no joke, get one with the black abs plastic shells and that thing will never break, never jam and the batteries last forever.

prophecy should do you good, only problem would be putting it back together correctly (which you shouldnt have to take it apart anyways) or ripping the battery harness (easy fix).

btw mesa boogies are bad ***.

get a Prophecy. But make sure you get the smoke shells because the black shells have had quite a few lemons. Or wait a few weeks until they fix the problem with the black shells. Either way, you'll end up with a hopper that virtually cant be broken

Pinokio Hopper. It has a bulletproof warranty on all of its part. If you ever break anything, you just email or call evan and its taken care of.

Id go with rotor,i like my pinokio, but would rather have a smaller profile. The prphecy is a solid loader but i cant see it being that strong.

The pinokio is flush with the top of my head when im shooting so I guess I don't really see how people have issues with the profile. Especially when you are carrying an extra 70-80 paintballs with 3-4 ounces less weight. I suppose if someone was shooting cali style with the tank really high on their shoulder it could be more of an issue, but noeone really complained about the velocity which is higher yet than the pinokio. The Pinokio is butt ugly though compared to the rotors.

Same question, worded differently; What is the best hopper?

It's completely and totaly users preference. Name any hopper and SOMEONE will have had a problem with it. You want a tank/nuclear/hurricane proof hopper? Gravity. It will never fail. Everything else has moving parts and eventually SOMETHING will fail.

Very true.

My Advice: If you want a good answer to this question start a poll so people can vote on which they like better.

Its user preference but as far as durability I would have to give it to the rotor.
