BE Pocket Hoppers

Yes folks... I'm sorry to say this... I put a Brass Eagle Accessory on my SIM-4 today... <sigh>

BE Pocket Hoppers

I figured a 50 round hopper for $3.75 was a pretty good deal, so I picked up three today. I'm currently spray painting two of them black, and I've left the last one clear for the time being.

After playing around with the clear one in my back yard on my SIM here's my little review of em...

Pro's:
-They're very small. They're only about 1/3 the size of a VL 200 Hopper and thus considerably decrease the target profile of your gun.
-They look pretty awesome on the marker. I'd imagine my black ones (after they dry will look even better).
-It detracts from the realism of the marker much less then larger hoppers.

Con's:
-The hopper CANNOT be filled more then 2/3 without lossing effectiveness. (any more and the hopper won't feed without VIOLENT shaking)
-At 2/3 full it only holds around 30~35 rounds.
-Even at less then 2/3 full they still feed poorly enough that you should figure on shaking it every 10 rounds or so.
-They're brass eagle, and if you have any pride as a paintballer you'll be embarrased to use their products, just as I am.

My Comments
-Since they hold about 35 rounds they do a pretty good job of simulating an amunition clip as far as how frequently you have to reload and such.
-You'll be using less paint since you can only fire off 30 rounds or so and only around 10 rounds per burst. This will save you a lot of money and probably do a good job of sharpening your game since you have to make your shots count (just like pump).
-With a clip kit & remote I figure this is about as close as you can come with .68 paintball markers (unless you want to feed three balls at a time into the feedneck manually (yes I HAVE done this before)).


So yeah, there's my review of em for ya... I'll still be keeping my Halo TSA for speedball and our urban field "village." However I plan to try to use these smaller hoppers for all my other games. Should be interesting. I'll add to this review once I've taken em on field...

they should make a hoper that looks like a scope that attaches to the feed tube so it dont look so poony. i think im gonna take a broken aisoft spas shotgun and put a piranha in it, so maybe if i can find a hopper like that id use it.
