What color hopper?

I was wondering if having a white virtue spire hopper is good. I mean does it reflect light or anything. Or give your position away.

It kind of depends on the game you play. Speedball, not such a big deal imo. In woods balls, not ideal, but not the end of the world.
You could always paint it

Whatever color you want. I personally stay away from white. It stains the easiest.

However, white hoppers and mask do give people away, imo. I stick with the dark stuff.

If you play indoors, white hoppers may not be allowed if the field paint is white fill. I'd choose a different color - avoid white and yellow.

I see people playing with white spires in the woods all the time.
In the woods the shades constantly move basically camouflaging that "white spot" in the bushes, so it's good.
As pointed above, they might not be allowed at indoors fields that only allow white paint, also there is a percentage rule on the yellow.

Unless you plan on hiding in deep cover waiting for someone to walk by you be fore you shoot them, white is not an issue.

I don't like white because it tends to stain easily. I have always used black hoppers.

Black stains more than white. Just saying...
While we are at it, my hoppers are anything but white, just a preference. No white vehicles or boats either.

By the time they see you or you see them it will be too late. you wouldn't noticed it from a distance. The eye is based off of 90% movement anyway.

Yeah in speed colors not so important but if you really care then you need to know the look of the fields/bunkers you will play most often in. If woods and you want to be hidden the white might be rough. Also it will get filthy especially after some paint sprays on it and everything starts sticking.

On the flip it looks pretty when clean tho so I totally get why you would ask Saw some picks of a Lv1 reverse stormtrooper gun... wooooo the white and black looks sick.
