View Full Version : Best Hopper for The MR2

11-11-2006, 12:13 AM
ok, so i know there are a buncha post regarding different hoppers, but im not entirely sure which would be the BEST hopper for the MR2

best as in can keep up with the MR2

1. which would be the best for a person without a budget...
2. which would be the best for a person with a budget...(>$100)
3. for those hoppers under $100, what should the gunner know...like is their likely to be chops...and if so which modes cause the most chops.....

im just puttin this out there so people (like my dumbself) can figure out which hopper to get...

also it would be cool if people who've used these hoppers* to post their experiences with them...

Apache LCD
Apache LED
Ricochet AK
Ricochet 2k
TSA backman/frontman
Reloader B/B2
Reloader II
Eggy 2
Eggy 3

Im in the same boat, im looking for a good hopper for my MR2 as well and from my own research i personally think that a QLoader is the way im gonna go. Yeah ya hear everyone saying go with a Halo B but the QLoader seems to be the most efficient in my opinion. Plus its more low profile and you wont have that giant hopper on top of your gun blocking your vision. Especially if you have a scope on it like i do.

ok most people go with either the halo b, empire reloader b, or the vlocity. i use the empire reloader b (cost around $140) and it has never had any problems. i use my reloader b on the lowest setting which is 18bps i think and it never chops no matter if you use fully auto,burst or semi. those are my thoughts and experiences. i hope they can be helpful. ask questions if you have them.

Just got the word that the new Kingman hopper will be available very soon. It boasts a feed rate of 30bps and from what I heard, should be under $100. Not bad -

Still waiting patiently on mine. I'll most likely throw up a review in the reviews section on these forums. They were on the VS's at the World Cup and had no prob keeping up with the awesome rof of the VS's. They were using Reball's as well w/o a jam. Try that in a HALO -

Nope, they only released it a few days ago, and no ones got one or said anything about one at least so far.

Hey has anyone checked out the Draxxus Pulse yet? Its something like 150 for the loader and add 40 bucks for an RF chip installed on your marker - ouch. The RF chip syncs the trigger pull to the "pulse" on the loader so it'll load as fast as you shoot.

I'd love to hear from you guys how the Fasta performs too. My Reloader2 being held together by 100mph tape right now.

The Pulse is prettymuch the best loader out there. Also the most expensive.

Got my new Fasta hopper today ! Pleased so far, shot about 200 balls with it . Going to change is stock dents on my gun , it double fed prob 3 or 4 times out of 200 . Guess we'll see how it works in the woods .

12-27-2006, 07:32 PM
I was using the Empire Reloader and didn't have too many issues with it, I did have an occasional chop, but overall not bad. I busted the shell some how (cracked the neck) so I bought a Triumph (pretty cheap), and went through 2000 rounds with 0 chops. I was on semi only and I was pulling the trigger as fast as I could at times. Just thought I would throw that out there.

Love my new spyder hopper , shot 1500 balls , worked great , no chops . First time Ive been really able to enjoy the gun , it was chopping paint so bad before .

is the fasta a force fed?

02-13-2007, 05:33 PM
This is an old thread. You could have started your own.

To answer your question, anything electronic is force fed.

02-13-2007, 05:35 PM
o sry i dont really no whats old and whats new. and thnks

02-13-2007, 05:36 PM
Just check the dates next time and you'll be fine. ;)

02-13-2007, 07:26 PM
Yes, please pay attention to post dates and do not bring old threads back to life.

Also, backman, please leave the moderating to the moderators. Thanks for looking out though.

02-13-2007, 07:27 PM
I know. i was just telling him. You guys cant be here the time. :D

We pretty much are. You just can't see us. Part of becoming a mod is super secret ninja training.

To answer your question, anything electronic is force fed.

This is not true, some electronic are agitators and some force fed. Force feeding is when the ball is actually pushed down the feed tube(for lack of a better term). This keeps the balls from a popcorninig effect which causes chops.

Agitators like my old Richochet just move the balls around so they fall down the tube easier. They are in no way, helped down. This sometimes causes misfeeds or if you have blow back, allows the balls to come back into your hopper.
