If you’ve got any of the Tippmann paintball guns without a Cyclone feed like the 98 Custom, or Alpha Black then you might have found yourself having to shake your gravity fed hopper everyone once in awhile to keep the balls feeding in. This can be annoying at the very least and can ruin a game when you miss that critical shot at the worst. A hopper that doesn’t feed fast enough can also cause ball breaks in the feed neck. One good option we have right now is the ViewLoader Evlution 3 hoppers. These hoppers have recently dropped from $89.95 all the way down to $49.95. This makes them a great value option for a hopper upgrade.
The DYE Rotor paintball loaders are some of the most popular hoppers in paintball. They feed super fast and are simple to use. One button operation. On and Off. They don’t require any programming or fiddling. Just turn them on to use and off when you’re done.
Add to this a tool free breakdown for easy cleaning and battery replacement and you’ve got our favorite high end hopper. Dye has now released new colors for 2012.
