Default Hoppers

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.
