Do I really need a new hopper???

I was thinking about upgrading my 98c..all i have right now is a j&j 14".. I was thinking about buying a halo hopper.. but I mainly play woodsball behind my house and I really don't see the need to buy one cause mine works just fine.. so what difference does it make???should i get one??

Gravity hoppers are fine for 99% of peple who play woodsball..

Agitated and force feed hoppers are mainly for speedball and guns that shoot faster than a gravity hopper feeds.

Well I'm guessing you cant outshoot your stock hopper. If you dont plan on buying a new gun..as in a fast gun then there really isnt a need to upgrade to a new hopper. If you were to upgrade your 98c with an ebolt or response trigger you might want to look into one but if you dont plan on making any customizations or upgrading to a new gun then there really isnt a need to buy one unless you can get a really good deal on one.

u don't need to upgrade. U are a once inawhile guy. U don't play enough to justify the cost. Besides u've already upgraded the barrel which is the most important up for the 98c. Keep ur gun and continue playing for fun.

As for a hopper....u may want to look into the revvy or a reloader II.

Dont worry about expansion chambers. Since you only play every now and then, and you want to upgrade, then listen to everyone that has been posting and get a revvy. you will notice fewer ball breaks, and is the best thing you could do other then HPA, but that costs a lot.

A 12 volt revy would do you good.

Barrel, hopper, HPA, only 3 things you should worry about for now. And hopper, get a revvy (or empire reloader)

The setup I use is a tippy 98c with a flatline and a revvy hopper, and it works GREAT! Dont get the halo though, youll never be able to justify it, and if you can, get a better gun

you have a stock 98 c you dont need a halo, if you do want a new hoppy get a revvi or something, not a hopper than costs as much as your gun.
