Most of the clamping feednecks out there will be just fine. Any of the following brands will work: New Designz, CCM, and Trinity. There may be a brand or two that I'm missing. Personally I have two CCM's and they both work great. Fit any hopper I've had to put in it and won't let go. I've had a little experience with the New Designz and it seemed to work fine too. Either way, you'll be fine with any of those.

He's talking about a new feedneck for his gun not on a hopper. Instead of using the plastic elbow that comes with most Spyders you replace the feedneck on the gun with a stronger metal clamping one to hold the hopper. That way you don't have the risk of the plastic elbow breaking and your hopper falling.

How about an ANS?

I wouldn't go with the ANS because it isn't clamping. It has o-rings in the neck that just hold onto the hopper and doesn't work as effectively as a clamping feedneck. Stick with the brands I listed above and you'll be all set.

I have a New Designz and love it. I have seem alot of hoppers hit the dirt from broken plastic feednecks and the o-ring type especially on the electro hoppers with their added weight.

I had the Trinity and it never seemed to clamp tight enough. One day the bolt broke. I picked up a ccm from Sundragon and it's been fine.

How about a Warrior?

Ebay for $20 any good?

How about a CORE of LAPCO?

Also seeing some Trinity ones.

All between $20 and $30!

I use a warrior feedneck on my pilot. I like it a lot, and it is very secure. But be advised, it does wobble a little bit, even when the screws are tightened. It isn't much, and it doesn't affect the performance at all, but you may notice it with a full (heavy) hopper. I've been using one for a year to hold a revvy on, with no problems at all.

Thanks.

I ordered the Warrior.

$20 on ebay.

I am using a VL Force.

It is kind of a big hopper, but its a force feed at about 20 balls/sec. with no chops.

It is a really nice hopper for $20.

Hopefully no problems.
