Hopper time!
 
Ok well last time I played, my pulse's feedneck snapped on me. :( Now I need to buy a hopper and I cannot decide what to get. People have told me get a used rotor, pinokio, reloader b, halo, magna, or buy a new magna or xsv vlocity. All I have to spend is $100 max...not a penny over.

opinions?

$40-$60 for a used HaloB. I havent had any real problems out of either of mine.

see, thats the thing, I don't really want another halo because mine crapped out on me, so did my friends and I only had mine for a year and a couple months used about 1 time a month. I am leaning towards an XSV Vlocity because of 1 the rechargeable batteries and 2, if I snapped a feedneck ( did it twice on my halo ) then its a really cheap fix

Edit: how are the torque 440's?

I'd check out a used rotor. I have one and it rocks.

actually I just called my local shop ( best place EVER! ) and talked to the guy who owns it. he told me he had a sale on magna's that ended saturday......he also said he was willing to honor that sale till friday. That means I am most likely going up there VERY soon and picking up a BNIB magna for 85 yay

edit: saturday being 2 days ago

i don't get it. is the feedneck and/or raceway not replaceable by itself on the pulse? i was under the impression that it was a separate piece on all modern hoppers.
