I NEED a new hopper

I've always used a gravity fed hopper, you know the one we all had at a time the VL200. But after a while of playing with It and then taking a break from paintball I played at the BT big game at my local field(Waynes World) last month and luckily won an Extreme Rage V9 loader It's better than the gravity one but I have to turn It on and off plus It's LOUD. So I would like one that does at least 15bps that uses an eye over sound and Is small, battery consumption Isn't a big factor since I have tons of batteries but It's always a bonus. Size and Sound are the most Important thing to me though. I was looking at the Ricochet, the Halo Too and the Revolution Eye Force If those are any good.

Viewloader Revolution Eye Force. $50, holds a full 200, does 18 bps reliably. EASY to clean.

Invert Halo Too also a great loader, but since you prefer eye, I'd go EyeForce. Also, the Too holds less than the EyeForce, although it's marginally faster stock (and with a 6 AA pack or bonepack is a decent amount quicker).

Well I'm using a stock SP1 and not upgrading to Blackheart anytime soon, also I don't spray as much paint as most people so I normally keep It on semi.

So the Eyeforce Isn't extremely big as some people say?
Or does It at least stay close to the gun?

It does set tall, however it's easy enough to take a dremel to shorten the feedneck to get it to set however high you wanted it. Mine sets pretty much right on top of my feednecks on all my markers (except the Marq) since I cut the neck.

That's probably what I'll end up going with, then I'll just cut It down to a size I want. Thanks for the help. Any more Input from anyone else Is always appreciated though.

The VL Eye-Force and the Invert Too are the best budget hoppers as of now
It doesn't get any better for any cheaper

It's not a single screw or anything to get to the batteries, you have to take the whole bottom piece off which is 4 or 5 screws.
And when I put it back I often pinch wires...kinda wished they just made a battery plate right under the loader, got everything right except that huh?

It's 3 screws. It also gives you access to the whole runway so you can clean it at the same time as swapping batteries.

Really...could have sworn it was 4....or was that the force? Still didn't like the design.

It's one in front, 2 on the bottom. The 2 on the side hold the freeway assembly & motor in, but do not hold the 2 halves together. I actually like the design. It's a MUCH better design for cleaning than the HaloB/ReloaderB/ReloaderB2/Invert Halo Too with it's 6 screws of 4 different lengths, and then you have to try to line up the spring right when putting the shell back together over the door. I'll deal with a bit more annoyance changing batteries to have the second easiest to clean hopper made (behind the Rotor).

and o how i love my rotor

i will agree though the halo b / reloader b is a pretty awful design for cleaning, as soon as my hopper started cracking i went and gor a suicide shell, much easier to clean but nothing like the rotor. at least with the suicide shell you dont have to mess with the board or risk pinching wires putting it back together, well i guess that is only if you are cleaning the loader floor, if you need to get to the raceway you still need to deal with that stuff.

Yeah, with force/EyeForce you will never pinch a wire due to the design.

I just route the wires under the raceway so they never stick up where they may get pinched in my Touch-Force


Thinking about getting an Invert Too just so I can have a halo style hopper
They got a nice looking rip drive kit for it out now as well, nicely priced at about $5 too

Plus it will feed 22bps on gun. Nothing will even touch that for the price.

You could take this loader to a pro event and win with it today.

ya now that i have a force i can say its a PITA to clean, not much better than the halo if you want to really clean it, sure you can take the top half off and kind of snake a rag in the shell but if you really want to clean it you have to split the shell in half which takes i think 5 screws (not to mention the other 3 you have already removed from taking the bottom half off) the worst part about it is all these screws are into plastic. give it enoufgh time and they will not have anything to grab onto anymore, so for that im going to say its the same poor disign the halo uses.
