I would choose a new hopper as well seeing as your tank works fine, but a upgraded hopper will allow you to shoot faster and not have to shake your gun to get balls into the feed neck.

Get a new hopper, it would provide the biggest improvement to your set up at this point.

And you don't need to go fancy with a rotor or z2.

Look into a halo too or the other new hopper from empire.

You need a hopper first, your tank will work for now but u need a loader that will keep up for your gun. U need a rotor or spire, they r expensive but worth it. I have been using my rotor for 4 years and the only problem I have ever had it was the dye speed feeds are crap, I would suggest the kwiky. And my aftermarket virtue board went out but will be replaced for free just pay shipping

yeah, i'd go with a hopper for sure. i just got a Empire Prophecy Z2 for my DM12 and it works great, but then again, it is pretty expensive. if you are starting out or on a budget, go with something cheaper like the other people mentioned. i still have my Empire Reloader B from like 07 on my Proto Reflex Rail and still feeds great, which i believe the Reloaded B from back in the day is up to par with feeders in the $80.00 range from nowadays...lol.

idk what your thinking.. the halo is a great loader. but then again i bet you have a rotor or a z2 so you have to say they are crap or you lose your aggness

list of great starter loaders
halo b
reloader b
halo too
eggy 2 3 or 4 if you can get over the ugliness
REVY - my favorite of the group feeds plenty fast and is freaking bullet proof
prophecy v1 or v2 can be had cheap i still use mine no need for a z2
pinokio if you can find it cheap
spyder fasta - way under rated it is a great feeder

You obviously don't take care of it or your just REALLY unlucky, I have about 9 custom printed HALO hoppers in my basement I used to use for my team and they are now retired as novelty items. They all lasted me since like 2005/06-present and are still perfect.
