Should hoppers come with speedfeeds standard?

Nowadays almost all speedball players buying a hopper will immediately put a speedfeed on it and throw the lid in their gearbag to be very rarely used. Scenario players also use speedfeeds pretty often.
Shouldn't hoppers come with the speedfeed as standard, and the lid be an upgrade? Really the only time I need a lid is when it's raining.

Eh. I'd rather choose the SF, they aren't all created equally.

I rarely find myself reloading in any game, let alone speedball. In my case, I would prefer a speed feed as an option, not a standard feature. Also, r45vt makes a good point: not all of them are at the same level. Let the end-user decide for themselves.

In there with you snowboarder lol. I jist got my virtue and i reloaded 3 pods on my last game. It takes an extra 10 seconds at least to worry about if your clear and also pop ur top then grab pid, the load then close top. Not to mention virtues SF is 45$! I jst dropped 200 on the loader already, also, with the gear, the atock stop is VERY tight. I got my feedgate free so no complaints. But i wish the loaders came with sfs, sure, make a stock one, then virtue will have upgrade. Simple

Where I play they allow 15bps ramping, and most of it's in the woods. For me that would equal a huge mess on the inside of my hopper. All it takes is a single stick while running through the woods to turn my Rotor into a $150 paint blender.
