320.00 give or take.

But...if you order the whole package from "the boss",Im sure he'll make it worth your money.

and why would i get an egg if apaches are better? and eggs are cheaper than apaches ($67) so i would get it brand new.

I have an apache as well. Its definitely one of the lightest and most reliable loaders out there, but a friend of mine says that they are lacking in speed. I was shooting a string on my matrix, and my friend said that he heard dryfiring every few shots or so. I didnt see anything odd though. But, if i were you, id just make sure that the apache really can go 18 bps before buying it.

Just so you know, everybody has the black/blue. Its become slightly overdone. I have the red, and its drop-dead sexy with the right color matchup (if you get red, GET A RED HOPPER!!). My apache is smoke, and i wish i had gotton red. It wouldve matched my evo so much better. Nice choice on the 45/45. IMO, thats the perfect size for the money. I think the best out there is the 72/45 peanut, but thats expensive. Oh ya, and make sure you get a crossfire hp (high pressure). They are waaaay better than any other preset tank out there.

Evo - $250
Boss Blade - $20
45/45 Crossfire HP - $175 (i think, pretty sure)
Apache - $85
$530, factor in $30 or so for tax, and we'll assume you get free shipping since thats what most online stores do now, and your total fee should be in the ballpark of $560.

Hey, at least its no where near as expensive as racing...

BS the only hoppers that can feed that fast are halos and qloaders. All non forcefed hoppers are limited by gravity no matter how their little proppeler spins. I borrowed my friends egg and put it on my b2k, cause my halo ran out of batteries and I had to quit for the day, because I kept chopping.

I don't need to try it, it's physics, plus people and companies claim higher bps all the time, such as the Victory board for the halo b claims it can feed 35 bps. Wrong, it hit a max of 29 bps on a mag and it chopped several times in one hopper. It was also tested on a Viking at 30bps, but it blended the hell out of it, so they didn't put it in the video. Qloader did great on both at 31bps though.

According to Warpig the Apache has a drop rate of 18 bps. That means the fastest it can unload the hopper is 18bps into thin air. When attached to a gun the start stop motion of a bolt and blowback slows this down, so you are actually going to be several bps lower than that depending on the gun.

Either way I seriously doubt your fingers will be able to outshoot an egg w/ zboard.

Really? I doubt they are on the Boss blade since RJ is the one making them. The Evo's are pretty much $250 everywhere, I doubt you'll find them much cheaper. The tank all depends on what brand and kind you get.
