I have been woundering about hoppers and how everyone says you need a super fast hopper to keep up with your gun. right!! but how come lots of pros like team dynasty all have 12volt revys on there shockers?? those are slow arent they 10-12bps? i said i was goin to get empire reloder 2 or the halo tsa each 13-15bps and alot of people said it wouldnt keep up with the b2k4?? i am confused please explain to me???

A reloader 2 will work fine. Funny, I thought Dynasty used Halo bs. Anyone else? But yeah, B2ks won't start to outshoot a hopper like a 12v revvy or reloader 2(pretty similar) until you get a board.

Well, it sounds like your pretty new (No offence) so a Reloader II or a 12volt Revolution would be fine for now, but once you get more into it, and up your marker and practice walkin/fanning the trigger, you will be able to outshoot them. I would say just to save up for the Halo/Reloader B and save yourself the hassle of upgrading later.

The description of their feedrates is overstated too. The actual feedrate of hoppers that say they feed 12-15 is probably more like 9-12. You will be able to outshoot that with a stock setup that has the trigger tuned properly.

I need at *least* and Egg II. I like to think of hopper speed as a mathematical equation:

You will want 1/3 to 1/4 faster than you can shoot (continous feed). For example...

8 bps = 11 bps continous loader
10 bps = 13.33 bps continous loader
14 bps = 18.66 bps continous loader

The reason for this is non-forcefed loaders there is always a spin up time. This equation takes into effect the amount of time that loaders take to spin up in comparison to how fast you are shooting and it gives you a 1-2 bps buffer zone to prevent chops. Of course there are loaders that function differently (Halo B, Qloader, Sound activated hoppers).

Doctor solo you rock for the angel recomendation but I can outshoot a revy 12v xboard with my b2k4 you just need a good setting on your trigger. I suggest looking into the revy tho, if you have the money a halo B is great!

warpig.com/paintball/t...ndex.shtml Is a great hopper test performed by warpig.com *great for technical tutorials and info* Although the revy doesnt show on there i believe its somewhere around 12-13 bps.

A Revvy with an X-board will burst to 14 bps. They feed near 11-12 bps constant.
