I'd go with a Viewloader Revolution (revvy) if you are on a budget though a Halo would be preferable if money is no object.

i'm buying a 12 revvy. there cheap. and i saw an upgrade to make it sound activated. like the empire reloader b's. so i hear that is. the upgrade is about 25. but i'd say go with the revvy. for the cost its a good hopper and can feed decent.

you can get them at wal-mart...well at my wal-mart. ebay has them used for cheap. they arent hard on batteries which is good. i think the clear ones pop more than the plain black. but if you can find a smoke colored one. id go with that. you can see how much paint you have easier and the other team cant as easy from the distance. i'm gonna get a smoke one if i can find one

For cheap (50 or less) you can get a Halo TSA, works well for an Ion, but not much higher.

CO2 is bad for the Ion

if you want a nicer hopper than a revvy look at either a richochet rhino or a richochet AK. they look HAWT and there not too expensive. the AK has ball sensors like an egg. its basically the cheapest force fed hopper i've found, and the rhino is the ak without sensors. there pretty cheap and will do the job. try looking at steel or alluminum tanks. i think thats what there made of. i'd say like a 68/4500 if you could find it.

Or you could get a Revvy for 30 which feeds the same rate...

I would go with a revvy if you don't have much to spend. If you have 100 bucks to spend on a hopper, get a Halo B. They are very fast and are made pretty well.

PaintBallBryan - no Richochet is true force feed. They are agitating hoppers, no different than a revvy. The AK doesn't detect paintballs like an egg does. Eggs have eyes, a Richochet AK has a little nub inside the feed tube and whenever a paintball moves past the nub, it agitates, pushing paintballs towards the feed tube. The Richochet Rhino agitates constantly, which is loud and will eat away at the battery pretty quickly...especially for only being able to feed 10bps.

You can get a used 48/3000 steel tank for around 50 bucks on ebay usually. I would highly suggest that over using co2 on an ion

I use a revy on my Ion and it seems to do alright. It doesnt fedd super fast but if you are just playing rec speed you dont need anything much faster then 10Bps anyway.

You're really going to wish that you had spent that money towards a truly competent hopper...

I just got a Halo B w/ Rip from Warped Sportz KC off of Ebay for $115 shipped, and it arrived in 2 days. You should too. PM me if you need a link.

That depends on your playing style. If you play speedball then you need fast!!! Halo-B
If you play elimination or rec ball something around 15bps is fine. I have the Halo TSA-LCD and it rocks! Also have the Halo-B, but my son uses that one, I like the TSA. Only $50.

On my Ion I use a TSA I got from Ebay and it works fine flawless. As far as batteries everyone says the hard on them, I buy them from Dollar General $1 for 2. I don't know if you have a DG around your place or not. Iv'e shot about 2500 rounds out of my hopper and it's still at 15volts. Ion+Co2=bad news But thats just my opinion

Halo B FTW !!!

u are eventually going to upgrade your ion and u will be able to outshoot a revvy easily even if it is stock

Halo B feeds 23 bps easily and will keep up with u and never chop a single ball

it will be worth it

Ion has eyes, don't see how the loader effects whether it chops or not.
