I did some searching but found nothing that answered this

Ok im gonna buy a new hopper, Its between these (posted are also The prices in South african Rand)
Spyder Fasta 18v LED (30bps??? Is it True?) R900
VLocity Junior (20 BPS) R750
Eggy 3 (23BPS) R900
ReVLution Eye Force (20bps) R700

The Fasta looks like its going to win with the 30BPS. But is that true.

Also i see that that the racetrack leading to the marker is like an s shape and not straight with a drop into the marker.

Does this give make it feed less.

Is it durable.

Does it have eyes

thanks for the help

Re: Hoppers
The Spyder Fasta Will Do 30+ Balls Per Second. It Is A very Durable Hopper and Very Efficient. The Fasta Hopper Does Not Have Eyes. I'm Pretty Sure Of That. And The S Shape Feed Does Not Make It Feed Less.

Re: Hoppers
so does it just carry on feeding (even if the raceway is full) or does it know when to stop.

I dont want the hopper to turn into a blender

Re: Hoppers
Vlocity Jr. is the best of the ones you have listed.

Re: Hoppers
of those i would go with the egg. your never going to shoot 30 pbs outside of some ridiculous ramp. I personally have a Halo B with rip and have never had any troubles with it not feeding fast enough. i haven't used a fasta, but the drive 'cone' doesn't look very good to me. I would imagine it has a pressure switch that shuts it off when the neck is full.

Re: Hoppers
the fasta is activated by a small peice of thin brown plastic that looks like film. it hangs into the feedneck and when a ball hits it, the motor spins. It is a very effective method.

i can make a drop test vid if you like.

I like the fasta but id probably get the egg.

p.s. i just found a reloader B w/ rip drive on ebay stores, buy it now for $70! http://cgi.ebay.com/Reloader-B-Paintball-Loader-Halo-Rip-Drive-Odyssey_W0QQitemZ330110204266QQihZ014QQcategoryZ71 157QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

Re: Hoppers
Prob is that im in South Africa. The Halo no rip with belt drive is $170.

Thats how bad/expensive it is here in SA. The prices i posted are the Prices i get them here.

The Vlocity Junior is the only one which has the same price as you guys in USA the rest are WAY more expensive

Re: Hoppers
Then definetly go with the Vlocity. By the way you are very lucky, I visited South Africa and it was my favorite country. I plan to study abroad there.

Re: Hoppers
Get the vlocity Jr., if your still not satisfied then you can get the gangster chip for ~$35 and it will run with, if not out run most higher end loaders. And oh BTW, I don't care what anybody says the fasta doesn't feed at 30 bps, free-fall maybe but there is a big difference between free-fall and on marker speeds.
The fasta is a good durable loader but advertised and actual are 2 different things. Show a goldwave of it and I'll eat my words.
