What kindof feednecks are you guys using? I was looking a the New Designz. Any good?
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.
im just using the one that came with my eggy. Whats the benefit of having a different one?
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.

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.
