hopper advice.

so i have a dye rotor, the only reason i want to keep it really is for bragging rights to my friends, last night i did some thought, i play woods ball and dont need a "WICKED FAST" hopper, so i found a guy on Craigslist and he has a halo hopper collection and is selling them for $25 each (shooting for clear or black...maybe both lol) that i want to buy and sell the rotor because its doing me no good, i dont need it, i could put the money towards paint, maybe a fill station and scuba tank, who knows. do you guys think this is a smart investment/move? the Dye hop. is camo, has a feed speed, what are hoppers like this going for?

I wouldn't. Cleaning a halo is a much more annoying affair then cleaning a rotor. Also, the halo goes through batteries much faster. Not that good a idea.

yeah that's a good point. doesn't the halo like re-cycle every few min? like for example: its on, and you haven't shot for like a few min and it keeps rotating the blade to make sure theirs a ball still in the chamber and make noise? eh whatever. still debating on buying one of his halo's though, just as a backup or just backyard shooting, or when its raining/humid/moist. my rotor doesn't have a plastic cap therefore the paint would be ruined if water got in.

I would stick to a rotor. The weight difference between the two will through your gun off balance. If you want a good hopper that can be found cheap go with a pinokio. Thats what i rock until i see the purpose or will in buying a spire

so just dont buy the halo at all? i dont exactly need it if i have the rotor anyway, just thought is would be good to have a spare? or a mess-around hopper that gets used in bad conditions? idk, whatever.

depends on the halo. if its eyes, then no. it doesn't keep cycling. can't speak for the too.

but if you want a spare, 25 bucks isn't bad, but even then, the rotor is still just better

Exactly. the money saved on batteries alone will make up for the price difference over a very long period of time. I've had my rotor for several years and i've yet to replace the batteries in them

Well on a mini you would more than likely like the vloctiy on it compared to the halo. Its one of the lightest hoppers on the market
