Why Go Electric?

me and my friends keep having arguments over why to get one, or why not to! they all seem to think that you only need one if your gun has auto or burst fire, can someone here finally sort this out once and for all!

thanks!

Have your friends ever played a game? If so in that game I wouldn't be suprised if they had to shake their hopper. Agitating hoppers shake your paint for you so you don't have to constantly shake your marker. Force feed hoppers are for when people shoot faster than 14 BPS.

They feed balls into the gun faster, and make it so you dont have to shake your hopper whenever the balls jam up. It is not just for full auto or burst. There a plenty of guns that can outshoot a grav hopper in semi mode.

even if your gun isn't electronic and its a mech you still might want to look into an electronic hopper such as a viewloader revolution, or empire reloader. The other day when my custom pro e was broke i used a back up 98 custom with a single trigger and still had to shake my hopper.

I use a 98 Custom Rt with a richochet apache. Like said before, if you ever plan to shoot a moderatley high speeds and don't wish to break 3/5 balls, go E;lectronic hopper.

The benefits of an electric loader cetainly outweight the negatives. In fact I really can't think of any negatives.
Just think of how irritating it is when you have the perfect shot on someone you pull the trigger and *BANG* nothing comes out because you didn't shake your marker. Now your opponent turns to fire at you and you're toast because he knows you're there.
Not to mention the 12volt Revvy's are now only like $20 - $25 . Cheap as they have ever been. PM me for the site.

Speed has nothing to do with your need for an agitating loader. It's CONSISTENSY. A ball is ALWAYS going to be there ready to shoot.. unless you're outshooting the hopper.

Electric is the way to go wether your talking about hoppers or guns. Slow shooting mechanical gun should have a 12 v revvy minimum and 15bps + needs an egg or haloB.
