I don't get it, how will getting a big hopper help you to see better? It doesn't make sense.
I am unfamiliar with the blade. How do you have it set up now?
If it needs an elbow for a hopper then you have no choice. You will have to go and buy one.
Whats wrong with just spending the five dollars to get an elbow? It won't set you back that much.
Have you ever thought of getting a different gun? Not saying that you have to or yours sucks, but you might be happier with something like a spyder/pirahna/M98/spyder clone. Especially if the blade performs anything like a talon.
Just back into the sport after being out of it for five years....my how things have changed
