Angry Evelution Hoppers and why they stink

Ok, I just got my angel, On saterday I went paintballing with my new marker. (only got to play 2 games because my friends gun wasnt working though.) So I go out and i pu tmy evelution on, and fill it up with paint, then i load my pods. I walk out the the speed ball field with a bunch of other guys. and we divide and we start playing the first 6 balls come out fine(I got a high rise on mine) then i notice there is a Ball Jammed in my hopper. I shake it hit it. finnally i just had to walk out because i couldnt shoot.

It seems a ball can get jammed right where the paddle meets the bottum part and it cant be shaken free, u have to stick ur finger up there and push it out.

So then i am ticked off and i go out there agian after fixing my problem, right off the back BOOM my hopper takes a direct hit from a paintball and smack THE FREIKING PAINTBALL CRACKED THE HOPPER!!!!! (it was actually pretty bad) and i got so mad that once i got to the waiting area i took the hopper off my gun and threw it to the ground.

I just ordered another Revelution 12v for my baby(angel) and i hope it works.

Lesson for this story. NEVER BUY A EVELUTION THEY STINK!!!

The eggolution hopper... blah. I've heard of similar problems, but only ONCE have I ever seen a hopper break after it was hit, and it was a very small break.

By the way, just remember to turn your new revy on when you play..... I frequently make the mistake of forgetting.

A teammate of mine had a problem with the batteries constantly falling out of his 'egg'. He ended up having to use his vl200 cause the thing was being such a pain in the arse. Cappy, was it a clear one? The plastic they use to make clear hoppers isn't as flexible as the black ones which might account for it breaking. I've seen it happen to other clear hoppers before. I hope mine doesn't get busted.

i saw a clear VL200 damn near shatter when i bunkered someone. and you guys shouldnt get the clear or colored hopers...the sun damages the electronics, adn the guns malfunciton. also they break more easlily
