Hoppers

Hey guys, I'm on a fairly tight budget, and I need to buy a motorized hopper. Now, I've got an Ion and I'm shootin about 12 bps, and I need a hopper that can feed fast enough for the ion. At my local BBT, the best hopper they have is a v-locity, and one of the clerks told me it can feed effectivley up to 17 bps. does anyone have one of these hoppers? do they feed up to 17 bps? are they worth the price? any help is appreciated.

Get a Halo B. You can get them used for around $60ish in the b/s/t. I prefer halos/empire b's over vlocitys.

VLOCITY IS THE ****.

I own one on my ion. The best hopper I've ever owned and would recommend it to anyone.

Like the other dude said, go halo.
if you are only shooting 12 a halo is plenty, and it looks way hawter then the vlocity

like they said. butif ur really tight, and plan on staying around 12 bps, id go with a revy, because its cheap and light. only problem is that its limited only to 12-ish. as the halo feeds 22 easily.
if u have the money, halo or vlocity
if not, revy which is 50 last time i checked.

Are you planning on upgrading your gun in the near future? If not, I would say buy an egg. They are very cheap and feed consistantly around 15. If you are going to upgrade your gun soon, then I would go with a halo B.

if youre on a budget and will only be shooting about 12bps, get a revy (viewloader revolution) or a egg (viewloader evlution II)
