Lot's of loader options. Each one is more expensive than the other but I can afford up to the TOO, no more, but I don't kno which one is better (the less expensive the better as far as it's good enough).

Vlocity - $40

Fasta (9v) - $50

Evlution 4 - $50

Fasta (18v) - $70

TOO - $73

I'll like to know mostly everything on each hooper, beacue in the description they never tell you the cons, just the pros (Like battery efficiency and such). I know all of them are good hoopers but one might have the worst battery life and another one might be very noisy. I don't knoe any og this on any ogf this loaders, so wich ones are the pros and cons on this loaders?

PS I use a TM-15, which has less sound signature than othe markers, will the TOO still work properly if I were to pick it (but I still want to knoe about the other loaders).

Vlocity - Fragile shells, WAY small opening. Vlocity JR. fixes the opening (at the expense of about 20 ball capacity). Horrible on batteries. But if you buy yourself a good set of rechargeables, then it will perform wonderfully.

Fasta (9v) - skip it. Worse than a Vlocity Jr. other than capacity.

Evlution 4 - Skip it. Worse than throwing your money in the garbage. Soooooo many issues with these it's not even funny. At least they fixed the shells so they don't blow apart if you look at them wrong.

Fasta (18v) - Fantastic hopper actually. Doesn't get nearly the respect it deserves. Great capacity, internals are nearly the same as the Pinokio. Good (not great) battery life.

Too - Very few things to fault with this. It's one of the best selling hoppers for a reason. Not the best capacity, but still quite decent, good speed, reliable, good battery life. Sound activated so no hassling with eyes getting blocked. Can put a rip drive in if you want. Can upgrade with a clutch system if you'd like. Really is a fantastic hopper.

My favorites on this list is the Too (obviously) and the Fasta 18v. Depending on price, I like the EyeForce also. Better capacity than the Too, same mouth, uses eyes instead of sound, and a bit annoying to take apart (you need a long shaft phillips), but the way it comes apart, is REALLY easy to clean well, feeds fast, and is great on batteries.

So Too or Fasta 18v. Maybe I'll get the Fasta, becuase I don't trust sound activated hoopers with a TM-15, I have a TM-Series Rip Clip and I just have issues over issues, I don't know why, everybody says its a great hooper (plus its horrible on batteries, I have to change them every game if I want to have it up I ready, but It hames a lot). So, can I trust the Too with a TM-15?

yes, key about the too and the empire line of sound activated hoppers is just to turn them on in a quiet place and then leave them on all day. i ran mine on a mini and it did fine. had more issues with it on a dm6 but once i learned to turn it on in a quiet area it did great.

iv never liked the shells on the fafsa but other than that i think its a decent hopper. id still take the too over it though

i think we had a discussion about this before and the rip clip works a little different. but it sure would be worth a try.

heres what happens at least for the empire reloader and the too, when you turn it on it takes a base line reading of the sound around it, then if it hears anything that is significantly higher than that base line it determines that that is a shot and loads more paint, if however, you turn it on somewhere really noisy then that baseline is set too high and when you shoot it is not high enough over that baseline for the hopper to think you are shooting

I say screw the Rip Clip. If I can trust you and I can, I will consider the Too, thanks. But just in case, what comes inmediately after the Too (Something that is better then the Too, that is a little bit more expenisve than the TOO)?.

Used Pinokio/Prophecy, Magna if you can still find one new and don't mind that it's backheavy (and no longer made), upgraded used Reloader B2's. Honestly, throw a magna clutch system and rip drive in the too and other than being easier to clean, you basically have a Prophecy.

the rotor at $160 is too expensive over the pinokio at $140-$150 and the prophecy at $120 or a prophecy z2 at $170?
Last I looked used Pinokios are around $100-$120. And I've seen Prophecies now at $70-$80 used.
