Hoppers suggestions

I have an Alpha Black with just a plain hopper on it. I've been looking at the Cyclone Feeder and the Halo Invert. What one would you guys recommend?

Please DO NOT buy the Cyclone. The Invert Halo Too would be 20x better!

Cyclone, although you really would need to pick up some soft paddles for it. It takes out the need for batteries and risks of playing in rain or moisture.

His gun wont be firing in excess of 18 bps at any point. It would be unecesary.

First of all, why would you buy a hopper that is limited to Tippmann + Tippmann clones? The Halo Too will be transferable to basically ANY other marker you might ever get. The Too jams less, is easier on paint, doesn't hang off the side of your marker and throw it off balance, and if you ever decide to sell it, it will have a higher resale value.

There's only been like 100 threads on this in the past too. https://www.paintballforum.com/paintb...-halo-too.html

I don't plan on buying another gun anytime soon. So this will be staying on the Alpha Black.

Either way, there's no point on limiting yourself. The Too is overall just a better loader, on any marker.

I did, I am definitely leaning towards the cyclone feed. I think with out batteries it would be so much better. Also it sounds like the Halo is tricky to deal with.

dont' limit yourself to something only a tippman can use, and that is also a blender.

a halo too is a fantastic choice, as an an eye force or anything else int eh used market.

I'm not going to be too hardcore, that's why I don't see myself buying a new gun any time soon. So whether it works with other markers is not too much of a concern for me.

which is exactly nothing, rain and moisture does nothing to a e-marker or a e-hopper, go look at some of the fields pros play on, they dont stop playing because its raining and the fields end up looking more like swaps than fields

halo too will not decrease the markers efficiency, it can be transfered onto any other marker out there, its better on paint and faster

for a lot of hopper options check out the link in my sig, i just finished the hopper section
