You can use them I think. Try to find a rule book.

I know you can't use clear.

Something about if the ball breaks inside the hopper the ref won't be able to tell the difference and call you out.

Your better off with a solid color, because the other players cant time your reload with black.

It all depends on the tournament, and chances are the balls won't break in your hopper, it's pretty rare.

unless your waving your hopper around and holding it out for ridiculous amounts of time they shouldn't be able to see how much paint you have lol

you CAN use smoke colored hoppers, you CANNOT use clear colored hoppers

edit: if u use clear you MUST cover the hopper , stickers etc.
