I have a Bravo one with the E-Trigger. i am currently running it with a Tippmann AL-200 Electronic Hopper. i am gonna upgrade the hopper finaly because i have not been able to run 15shots/second. and i have 2 real choices.
Tippmann SSL-200
Cyclone feed system

now the question is which to run. my gun is kinda a pig on air on 12 shots/second about somewhere between 500-1000 shots a tank (20 oz) so i am kinda thinking the electronic hopper so i don't have anything else drawing off my air supply. batterys are cheap and easy to replace on the field. exchanging the tank mid battle would be kinda annoying with extra weight always making sure to have a backup air supply onhand. another reason i see the SSL-200 is for gun upgrades. when i decide to get a new gun i can move the SSL-200 over to it. the cyclone doesn't exchange into all guns that well.

but i don't know if there are any great features to teh Cyclone that would compensate for the air useage.

Thanks

i am leaning towards the SSL-200. but i am wondering if perhaps there are somethings on the cyclone i am overlooking. can always just buy a new hopper if i get another gun in the case i go with the cyclone.

theres still nothing good about it but the same can be said for the tippmann ssl-200, its an agitator not a true feeder which means its rated up to 15bps but thats not a consistent 15. and if your thinking of $60-$80 for the cyclone then look at the halo invert too, its a fantastic loader that will outfeed whatever you put it on and $70, can be traded onto whichever marker you get next and parts are easy to find for it

oh. very true. i guess if i am willing to spend the money for a cyclone could spend the same amount for an electronic hopper. i will have a gander at the halo hopper. thanks Trbo
