Default Whats the best hopper for the MR2?

Ok, well I had an MR1 for a while, then I decided to get an MR2.

So far, it's pissed me off. I went to play with it for the 1st time, and chopped everything. So, then I found out that it was the springs being ridiculously hard. So, I've spent the past 2 days breaking it in.

Basically, I haven't been able to really USE the gun yet. I do LOVE the way it feels, and of the few shots I got, I was satisfied.

To the point, I am using VL Force right now and I wanna know if it is good for the gun. Advice?

PS: Please don't just enter and say "Halo B". I know hign end hoppers are the best, and that I will upgrade eventually. All I want to know is, Will I be able to shoot the gun functionally on every setting with this hopper? If not, recommend something at a reasonable price?(Less than $70)

Thanks in advance.

i tried out the VL eye-force ($50), but returned it. its supposed to feed when the gun is fired, but it felt like it feed 1-2 seconds after i pulled the trigger. when i was using burst of auto i would sometimes fire dry because it couldnt keep up.
I read that the spyder fasta 18v led ($70) is decent, so im gonna try that out.

get bob long intimidator detents aka "timmy" detents. spider ones are a little too weak to use with a force fed hopper. they are only a few bucks on ebay so they are real cheap, and it helps with the chopping business. the only thing i can offer to you if that doesnt work is to buy higher quality paint. of course i highly recommend you get the timmy detents, they help out a ton, but paint quality plays a big part in it as well. i found that out the hard way trying to scare someone from my school on automatic... I use a VL eVLution and it works just great. about 19 bps, mr2 on full auto is like 12 or something, but semi goes up to around 25. what are the specifications on the vl eye force? you want something at least 15 bps or faster. i suggest the fasta, i've heard it works great. my egg works great too though i guess... the egg is fairly cheap, look on ebay, i suggest the evlution II or III. i have the evlution II with y board so its slightly faster than evlution II regular board. idk just look at different paints and experiment a bit. i still trying to find good paints that work for the mr2... when it comes to finding good hoppers at low prices, shop victoriously! (ebay )

Alright, thanks everyone.

Also, I'm using the VL Force, not the Eye Force. But the regulat Force still shoots at 18bps.

thats on drop test and maybe only of burst shots,

hoppers never do that much on a gun, thats just advertisement it never said it could do 20 on the gun, it just vaguely says 20 bps,

but to answer your question, it should be a good enough hopper

I agree your hopper should be fine, if you want keep your 70$ and use your old hopper till you have saved up enough cash for a high end hopper like a Qloader, empire or halo. There is no neeed really to get another hopper that will have preformence only equivilent to what you have. I started off with the Egg II with Y, I wanted something better but didnt have much to spend so i bought the egg III I still wasnt satisfied so I ended up buying a Halo with rip and V35 latter. My point to this whole story is that i threw the 100$ CND out the window because i wasnt patient enough to wait till I had enough for a halo! So in my opinion dont make my mistake, if you want to upgrade wait till you have a decent sum of cash built up.

is it possible to get a loader that is "too much" for a given gun? meaning, do you need to match the performance of the loader with the gun? or just get the best loader available and put in on whatever gun you have regardless of its ability?

doesnt matter what gun you have, cheaper hoppers usually give you problems,

a spyder with a non force fed hopper tells me nothing but chopping,

a gun with eyes and a cheap hopper tells me i'm just not gonna be happy because i wont be able to shoot as fast
