View Full Version : New Hopper
05-13-2007, 05:49 PM
I am looking to buy a new hopper for my Pilot acs. Cheaper is better but I still want to get a quality hopper. Is it worth the extra cash to buy a Halo or should I go with something cheaper like an Egg 3?

i would go with the eggy 3 price wise but if u hav the money-The Draxxus Pulse
Stay away from the pulse until the suit is settled, trust me on this one, customer service is lacking to say the least. For a pretty much stock pilot the egg3 will more than surfice. I have all 3 currently (pulse, halo b and zeggy[same as egg3]) and I have to say that I am most happy with the Halo right now, the pulse is much faster than the halo but considering that I am on my second shell for it, not much good being fast if it is at DXS more than on my marker. The egg is great for the price, but the halo can be upgraded to far surpass most markers feed rates without putting too much of a dent in the pocket book as you get higher-end markers.
And btw, shopping for used loaders will get you a great loader at a much cheaper price.

I just bought a virtue ion today (off a really dumb friend, $200), would the egg still be the better way to go. I am still going to keep the pilot as a backup but now I will primarily be using the ion

i have egg2 for my pilot acs it works fine. you can get it at wal-mart for $50.00 last i looked. But if you plan on getting a faster gun in the future you might consitter the halo

Get a halo now and you don't have to worry about upgrading in the future.

I would recommend the Fasta 18V LED model. It's faster than an Egg3 & holds a little more paint. And it's usually about $10.00 cheaper than an Egg3.
