Smile Hopper recommendations?

Hi all,
I'm a relative newby using a Pilot ACS, and so far like it a lot. But the gravity hopper I have just isn't keeping up. I really don't shoot all that fast, but I guess it's fast enough to outrun the hopper.
So, I am looking for recommendations from the board as to an electric hopper. But pls don't recommend a $300 hopper. Bottom line is I just don't have that much to spend (maybe 50 bucks), so I am really just looking for something that will feed about 12 bps and get me started. I have to play more before I think about spending major bucks. It seems the best price out there is on the Quantum, but it gets pretty mediocre, if not bad, reviews on pbreview and other sites I've seen.
If you know any particular web sites or retailers you recommend for good prices, I would appreciate hearing about about that as well. So far the most recommendations I get are for actionvillage.com.
Thanks in advance.

Halo TSA, Empire Revvy or the like are cheap and usable. I actually have my brothers halo TSA for sale in the B/S/T forum if you don't mind used and want something decent for a lowish price.

Ideally though you'd find a used eggy or fasta, they're more expensive, but much faster.


If my advertising is illegal (I'm not entirely sure), mods feel free to edit the above.

I vote for at least a used 'Eggy' and here is my reason: FORCE FEEDING!!!
HALO TSA, Ricochet AK, and Revvy's are 'agitating' hoppers...they stir up the paint to help it feed faster....
Eggys, Fastas, HALO Bs, VLositys are all 'force fed' hoppers meaning they actually push the paintdown the feedneck. This is the best, and fastest way to supply paint to a marker. Used Eggys are probably the cheapest force fed option out there...and they are pretty fast too....more than enough for your marker!

Like the above I would reccommend an eggy(Evlution 2 or 3) hopper. Check into different sites and/or trade/sell forums

By technicality the eggy isn't force fed, but thats mostly irrelevant, its very fast none the less.
