Here is a problem i can see with the channels....what if by any chance you get an oblong ball that jams in the channel? Other than that i cant think of anything off the top of my head i'll think about it some more!

P.S. Sniper vs. Ferret generally leaves one alive and the other scattered in pieces over the ground at a 1000 paces

Maybe by making each channel a mm or 2 bigger than the actually pbs

Im not sure I would assume it would be a considerable amount less probably 75 or so if you were lucky as you would have to have fairly wide bends to it. More I think about it probably not do-able at all.

-1 for ferret. i was referring how the a5 uses excess air to power the hopper. i know how the cyclone feed works...

is the Archon hopper actually using the excess air? or am i looking at the picture weird? and it seems like Celtic's design is much like the Archon hopper, just a little more complicated. and that paintballs are coming to the feedneck from the left, right, AND center.

the archon hopper just funnels the paint a little better so that it doesnt jam going into the feedneck, and it stops the blowback from pushing the paint back up into the hopper, which causes chops.

The hopper with the air ratchet for Spyders and the A5's Cyclone both use the excess air to spin an impeller. How does not matter as they both achieve the same end.

Ok what about a light suction system? say you had a air tight hopper and as a ball left the feedneck suction pulled another down?
