New hopper

Ok, my current hopper broke and i cant fix it. So, i need a new hopper (electric, force fed) but i dont want to spend 150 bucks im actually looking at a walmart hopper i cant remember what it was but, it was a View loader. Anyway, are there any other hoppers that you recomend?

(im also looking at a tourque 220)

go grab a used empire reloader b. around $80-100 it will easily keep up with the ion and chances are, whatever you get next. at any rate if your shooting on semi it will easily be able to feed faster than your fingers, and because 99% of it is the exact same as the halo, parts are easy to find so you wont run into the same problem you are having right now

one step down from that is the eye force, i think they are around $70 new. solid hoppers but youll probably have to get online to find parts

edit: wow guess iv been out of it for a while, i wasnt sure on my pricing so i did a quick ebay search, new the reloader b is selling for $90, used ones are around $50

Is the Reloader B based on the sound? And is the tourqe 220 out of the question?

if you want even cheaper, you can pick up used halso with ridiclous upgrades for around the same price.
A year ago i pick up with with a victory board and hybrid shells for $60. I'm sure this year there's evne more stuff liek that floating around.

Turbo323- can you set the sound to a VERY sensative level?

Martix- my shop doesnt carry old products besides what players sell (guns w/ all the gear)

sure, all you have to do is turn it on somewhere really quiet. what it does is when it is turned on it takes a baseline reading and stores that. then anything that comes in high enoufgh above that reading it registers as a fire. really i think what they did for the b2 is take this out of automatic and just make it so you can set it manually. but turning it on somewhere quiet accomplishes the same thing. put it this way, i have a dm6 (its pretty quiet) and i have only had a problem with this once (before i knew about it taking a baseline reading when turned on)

Talking ricochet

dude actionvillage is having a ridiculous sale. you can get a brand new ricochet apache with l.e.d. screen for $25-$30.00... and in my opinion the apache is equally as good as any other hopper out there... seriously though if you're not trying to spend to much money and want a GOOD and RELIABLE hopper check it out... here is a link

Ricochet Loaders at ActionVillage.com : Paintball

Ok, i went on to Actionvillage and checked out some hoppers. I found a Viewloader Vlocity Jr Paintball Loader. I might order it but i want your guys opinion on this one. It looks nice and will keep well up with my shooting and probably anyone elses. Its small and light weight but, im not sure my shop carries the parts for it when it breaks or i need to replace something.

I still like recommending the EyeForce. I have a Pulse, I had a V35 Halo w/ clutch, I have a Vlocity, I have a Rotor. I use my EyeForce. It's as fast as you'll ever shoot on the marker, it holds more than a Halo/Pulse/VLocity Jr., it's pretty good on batteries, and it's REALLY easy to clean. One of the cheapest loaders to boot, can find it $50 new online. My Rotor may replace it as my main, but that's most only because it only uses 3 AA, which is a lot cheaper than buying 2 9V...but of course there's a gigantic difference in price (50 vs. 150)
