JT Evlution Question

Wondering, on the new JT Evlution. This is supposedly a force fed hopper. That being said, when the eyes see a ball in the feedneck breach, does the ball impeller stop dead thus cutting power to the impeller, or does the motor continue to stay powered to keep pressure on the ball stack?

Also, is the floor of the hopper flat, or is it curved/slanted to help the flow of paintballs into the feed raceway?

At first glance the evlution is basically the old eggy hopper redone with a new shell, same pull out method, same raceway for the balls, and it seems as though the propeller will feed as long as it is being fed through shooting. Say you stop shooing, motor stops until the falling ball hits the propeller and starts it feeding again. Raceway is slanted based on the review on YouTube, Just an observation/idea

Evo 3s were the kind of force feeding you want. When the motor stops there is tension on the ball stack from the flex of the impeller. Great hoppers just cursed with weak shells.

Im pretty sure the new evos operate the same way but I have never used one to confirm. The reason I dont like the new ones is that you can't cut the feed tube down on them to make them low.

Egg 4 or the evo4 with the half clam opening for paint kept force on the paint. Awesome loader with the pull pin disassembly, kept up with 12.5 ramp, durable rubberized shell, great on batteries. Was like a setting less virtue vl junior board.

Why wouldn't you be able to cut down the feed tube?

The velocity has the same problem...weak shells. I wish they would remake the velocity with a durable shell like on the new evlution.
