GXG pocket hopper?

Is there any way to help make this hopper feed better, its the only pocket hopper that my local shop has so I picked it up not knowing that it apparently has feeding problems (haven't used it yet).

honestly compared to its competition, they are complete crap. i did get it to feed properly tho. i used jb weld to put inside the nose of the hopper. i found out the reason why the balls jam because 4 balls sit perfectly around the feedneck causing a jam. i molded the jb weld so it is slightly concaved and it feeds balls into the feedneck properly when all that space in the nose is taken up. the cons to this is that the hopper is heavier and will have less capacity. some people have sanded the feedneck but this leads to a weaker feedneck that can cause snapping and you have to have tiny fingers to do so properly. it still doesnt solve the crowding issue but is easier to clear with a slight shake or two

eventhough i found probably the best solution to the feeding problems, i still would use my winnie or my plasti-dipped BE before i would use this hopper again

'I have a GXG. The lid is loose.
But holds 50. It's cheap price though
