they're slow, ugly, poorly designed, and not worth their price.

I'm against them because instead of buying a new egg you can just buy a used Halo B for the same price as a used egg, and a Halo B is significantly better.
The only way I'd buy an EggII is if it was used and going for around $30. Then I'd just use it as a backup in case my Halo broke.

eggzactly (hahaha)

the huge problem is that they're not spring loaded like a halo so the first few shots you take aren't forcefed. and yes they have weak batteyr doors and feednecks.

Woops I meant to say for the same price as a new egg. I'd also like to see a halo B going for $30 and then I'd like to buy it. lol

They feed super slow, even with z board. They max out at like 17. Plus they break all the time because of their bad design and bad material.

eggs are actually prolly my favorite hopper. i dont have one now, i have a halo b. the halo is nice, and fast, but its pretty heavy and its neck is too big for most feednecks and requires sanding. it also only holds about a pod worth of paint.

my egg never had any problems at all. it always worked and never cracked or anything bad. im going to get another one soon because the halo doesnt work good on my tippmann, and becausethe halo adds too much weight to my guns compared to an egg. i think im going to get an egg 3 though bcause it supposedly has stronger shells and has the z board stock.

my egg has always worked fine, i shaved down the feedneck and the battery door is a little annoying but its okay, i dont mind that it doesnt feed that fast cause my ion has a stock board so I cant shoot over 17 anyway

I like the way eggs look, but the feed neck design is very cheap, so it tends to crack if you hit it the wrong way. Personally if they were slightly more durable I'd have one
