Old Hopper on Used AXE

I've got an Extreme Rage Overdrive hopper I used with my 98 and I'm currently looking into a used AXE. Would it be in my best interest to get a new/better hopper?

From my personal experience, the Axe is an amazing marker and a Halo Too or even Rotor will treat you well. You can pick up either one gently used for a little over $100.

The Halo Too is less than $100 new. Used you can get one for much less.

Rotor, prophecy z2 or virtue spire will do the job. If u dont want to spend over 100$ buy the jt evlution or the halo too. They are both good and will keep up fine. Go with the one that fits u most like the type of paint it does best in weight if u really care about it and things like that.

Yup. No matter what, if you get a gun that can shoot faster you know you're going to try to push the envelope. That means you'll need a faster hopper. It never hurts to have a hopper that is capable of feeding faster than you need it too, since it keeps things running smoothly with a good margin of error. Any of the hoppers suggested above will be fine.

Remember one thing though, not all hoppers are equal when it comes to brittle paint. Some of the cheaper ones won't have an adjustable stack tension which means on cold days, or with brittle paint you may get a few more chops. Not really a big deal and it shouldn't be a huge issue as long as your gun is set up for those conditions.
