I have the MR2 w/halo b changed the detent but still double feeds. So just bought the Egg hopper to if it works better. Does anyone have input on these hoppers?:confused:

Still double feeding? That's not right. Does it do it often? What detents did you put into it?

Is that a force-feeding Halo B? That would be your problem right there if it is.

well if input is advice then get a z-board in your eggy.

Uh hes trying to get a decent hopper that doesn't force feed too much, I thought other people used halo b's on their MR2s though? Obviously theres gotta be some way to get it to apply less pressure, or get a stronger detent?

Think that's funny, detents for some markers cost $10-15 each -

So they're the exact same ones shown in the URL? I can buy tires for $35 each and others for $75. The $35 tires are guaranteed for 5,000 miles and the $75 tire is guaranteed for 20,000 miles. In some instances, you get what you pay for. As far as you know, the ones you got from the pro shop were Spyder detents lol. Do they have Timmy inscribed in them? -

If you want a hopper that doesn't force to much get he VLocity you can adjust the force up to 8 times (thats including off)

Last I heard, Timmy detents are made by Kingman.

Thanks! for the input/advise. I believe my problem is the detent, But paintball stores here in Houston all have spyder detents. (IT'S THE SAME THEY SAY)

Timmy detents are quite a bit stiffer than the standard Kingman detent. I'm not sure, but I think they're a bit longer as well. They do look very similar though.

Personally, I hate those kind of detents. Had nothing but problems with them - it felt like I went through one every 5 days of play.

I just went w/ the Empire Reloader B and have not had any problems. You can adjust to 3 speed settings and I just put it on the lowest setting. Whenever I decide to upgrade markers, I won't need a new hopper.
