Pump agitated hopper question

Hey everybody. I'm just curious on why people think a Revvy is such a great pump hopper compared to a VLocity Jr? I know they are both agitating hoppers. Is the profile on the Revvy better? Is it the shell material? Thanks for the responses. Right now I use a Sportshot or a Pico with Halo B internals. Sometimes I feel like it would be nice to not have to carry extra pods with me.

Revy just works great because it dose not put any pressure on the stack unlike the JR. Both will work fine with the proper bore to paint match.

The VL jr will work fine. As will the Revvy. As long as your pump has detents then you shouldnt have issues with double feeding. Many of us run Rotors/Spires/Z2 on pumps fine.

It kinda depends on what pump you are running it on and if the detents can handle it.

I will say that VL jrs shells arent all that great and break as older revvys are really tough.

I have a new T2. I've always liked the look of the Vlocity Jr. I was just curious why so many people that play pump swear by the Revvy is all. I didn't know if it was because of the profile, the material, etc.

I've also debated on picking up a pinokio speed for its smaller profile and lighter weight when compared to a rotor etc

Revy just works well. Their durable cheap and batteries last a long time. You will spend more in batteries keeping that JR going all season then what you can get a used Revy. If people want smaller profile there going to the APP-50 Winchester or a Sportshot (No batteries needed).

Also I know that if you are using an older autococker with a stove pipe feedneck some hoppers will not fit. In my experience my revvy always fit on the old school stovepipe feednecks. Unlike the Z2 which did not fit on any that I tried. The revvy does not keep pressure on the stack which is great for the older autococker pumps as well. You can get them for like 30 used 40 new. The new JT revvy brought back the old shells and the eye and they are 40.

The thing that always turned me off about electronic hoppers on my pumps more than size was the weight. I recently bought a JT Revvy from my local sporting goods store (great sale, $25 new) and like it a lot because while it is a bit big it isn't a huge front profile and is impressively light for what it is. Battering behind the feedneck makes the weight go away and being able to use regular pods is nice for things like LL8 coming up. On rec days I still prefer a winny or app50 personally.

Ya I've debated switching my pico to 9v's for the weight savings alone. What do you guys think about the Empire Reloader 2?

Great circuit board, everything else is substandard and fragile compared to a Revolution.

Of course, with a pump, sound-activated agitation isn't ideal anyway.

I've never had an issue with double feeding while using a force-feed or agitating hopper on any of my pumps or any of the pumps I've seen on the field. Not to say it doesn't happen, but detents work wonders.

That having been said, I prefer a force-fed hopper when I'm not running stock class because I like having a ball in the chamber.

But the lightweight and battery friendly and overall cheap-to-pick up nature made Revvy's popular, and I suppose a big part of why they're still kicking around on pump guns today is that tradition of having been stuck on there and them having worked.

I think a big part of it is that a Viewloader Revolution just looks "right" when sitting atop an autococker-based gun.

You can still easily get the 140 ball tripod shell for the Rev as well. Makes it a little smaller than stock.
