Default Which hopper should I use

Alright so i recently broke my last hopper ( Viewloader 200 lol) and im lookin to buy a new electronic loader. I have the bills for a halo b or Vlocity but im thinkin of savin up for an empire b or maybe even a pulse. Anyone know which loader works great with the vs2 and can be used for a long time without breaking.

Well, hoppers are preference. Eggys and better will be fine on the VS2/3. So its up to you which one you want.

If you get some kind of halo or vlocity you can always buy replacement shells if your hapens to crack. I may be wrong, but I also think you can buy replacement shells for the eggys too.

Eggs can put out 19bps, and that should be plenty for the VS2 or VS3. Honestly, it should be plenty for most players. There's not many people that can shoot more than 19bps, let alone 19bps continuously.

Edit: Eggy Rvo3's can do 22 or 23bps...

Well Eggys are back heavy due to the structure of the hopper. Its plenty fast and you can make it faster with 20 dollars for a zboard. But halos will feed anything gun. So its preference. I've never used a vlocity/jr. so I cant say if theyw ere worth it or not.

Carebear-Yes you can buy replacement shells for eggys as well.

Now that I've had a chance to use my pulse I'd have to say the Pulse, I've got the RF chip in my pilot and use it in pulse mode on my angel 1. I have been extremely impressed with how well it feeds. I've used vlocity's and Halo's w/35 on my pilot and their damn good loaders but I have to say that the pulse is by far my favorite. I'll try and find the site I saw them for $135 and post the link. The RF chip is another $35 but it is more than worth it. Good Luck deciding.

Its between the eggy and VLocity jr.
Contact Durrell he's got a brand new Vlocity Jr. that he's been trying to sell.

If you can't shoot extremely fast (25bps) I strongly suggest the Empire Reloader II hopper, I have the clear version and it rules, its only about 50 buck? i got mine for $45 Canadian. It loads about 15 bps, I can;t even shoot faster than that.

It really depends on your style of play. Yes it's nice to have a fast hopper so you can spray more, but try to keep in mind that paint costs money.

I'm more of an aggressive/conservative guy. I'll keep you down with minimum paint usage, and only fire when I know I have the shot while still being aggressive. I use a Revvy when I play. It's enough for my style of play.

Just figure out what's your style of play and set it according to the hopper you'll buy. Personally I'd pick the Vlocity Jr. because of it's compactness and sufficient speed. This will probably be my next hopper of choice in the future, but for now, I'll stick with my revvy. It has never let me down.
