View Full Version : hopper dilemma

02-25-2006, 02:54 PM
ok, my ricochet AK broke (i think its the motor) and i have 3 options:

1. sell it as
2. get a 2kx upgrade board for $20 (15 BPS)
3. do #2 and sell to get a faster hopper

and now, if i do end up getting a new hopper, should i get a Zeggy or Halo B? one thing to consider: i did a drop test, and my $4 hopper spit out 20 BPS (40 balls in an average of 2 seconds) so im not sure about exactly what hopper to get. it would seem that all i would need is an agitating hopper to keep the balls falling at 20 BPS without plugging up...

... umm .. what kinda gun do you run ?? ... i'd go probably with #3 ... get a zeggy or a reloader b ...

i have a spyder, but i plan on getting another one this weekend (not willing to disclose exactly what at this time) but itll have eyes and i plan on getting eyes for my spyder, so im not worrying about chopping.

Ion for the unnamed gun. :) Go Empire Reloader B. Never have any problems with those. ;)

Zeggy ---> Battery Door would come open ---> fixed with tape or zip ties

Halo-b ---> Rip drive wheel broke ---> replaced with an aluminum one

I have both hoppers and like them both.

Halo or reloader B are the only two options IMO. honestly, i dont see why you would even consider anything else.

the vlocity is faster than either of those hoppers stock ... but i don't like how it looks ... it's pretty fugly .. IMO

LOL.....yeah ooglie, it is....but function>aesthetics

very true .. and i like the price of it also .. pretty cheap

Put 200 balls in your hopper and do a drop...bet it doesnt do 20 BPS.

don't have one yet but i'm thinking about it...my Ion's TBoard is gonna need it

Since when is $130 for a hopper cheap? - :dodgy:

It's supposed to do 35 drop test and 25 on the marker. The HALO has finally been lowered to second best lol -
