NEW! Hard Corps Torque hopper.....
 
I spoke with George Spurlock today at the WCO. He has a small display there loaded with these new Torque hoppers that were just released to the market 2 days ago. He seems to be selling tons of them and I can see why -

It consists of 4 pieces: shell, shell, lid, internal assembly. Hee hee....NO SCREWS! -

This new hopper comes in many colors and many different camo patterns as well. There's even a multiple choice of colors for the intenals which houses the motor and all the main parts that run the hopper -

He showed me how simple it is to take apart and put back together. All you do is release a couple tabs inside the main ball chamber and the shells come apart for cleaning. To put it back together you just put the main internal portion in one half of the shell, put the lid in place and snap the other shell to it.....presto! -

He says it was tested at a 30+bps feed rate. It also has a reverse button to clear any jams that may occur -

The only downside of this hopper is it holds 160-170 balls -

The website is www.hardcorpspb.com Don't know about anyone else but it took my pooter forever to load that site. Couldn't take any pics since there were so many people around the Hard Corps booth. If I go back tomorrow I'll attempt to take some pics to show you. That is if there are any left and it doesn't rain like hell tomorrow too. In the mean time here's a scan of the handout from the Hard Corps booth:

Seems good, very cheap. My field is getting them, and I'll probably get to testing one. I'll try to post a review.

Must be today's magic number. I was most impressed with the fact of how quickly he took it apart and put it back together. It didn't even take him 1 minute to do that. I rarely take any of my hoppers apart because they're such a damned hastle. Especially my Zeggo -

The camo patterns were killer as well. The Real Tree was awesome? -

Dragon......should be hanging out at the MD booth.......there was a major downside to the hopper.......he told us less than 4 hours of run time........but you just keep track of how long it's been on and turn it off between matches.......useless for scenario or long rec games! Otherwise great idea!

I guess that's what happens when you don't use a board :undecided:

Now is that 4 hours sporadically, or 4 hours continually running? Like when testing it. There was a guy at the booth that said he was going to do a review of his testing on PBN. Thing is, if the guy works for them, how can it be a totally unbiased review? -

Beats the hell outta me. How can it have no board at all? There has to be some electronic control since it's sound activated -
