Warp feed advice
Can you guys talk a bit about the pros and cons of the Warp feed system? I'm a woodsballer, don't absolutely need insane ROF, but think a Warp feed might help with a few issues. First, I now have this old-school, non-powerfeed Mag and it blows back through the feed neck like a mother. A force feed solution might help with that, especially in the ball-chopping department (though, now that I think about it, I suppose the Level 10 would keep that from being a big issue, huh?). I sort of like the idea of not having the hopper lurking up there, since I tend to like using the tops of bunkers as much as the sides.
Is this a really silly idea?

* Gets the hopper off the top of the marker
* Lowers profile due to ^^
* gives a clear 'line of sight' over the barrel
* You no longer have to switch hands to shoot out the other side of a bunker. You simply lean out that way
* Adds weight to one side of the marker making it feel unbalanced
* runs on batteries
* takes some getting used to [more than a game or 3]
* feels like it's in the way [even though it isn't]
You can use a gravity hopper with it but that's not recommended. Use some kind of agitating hopper, the 9V Revvi being the "slowest" to use.
As you can see...I like mine a lot

When I was playing rec-semi...I loved my Warp Feed. Will admit that it can be annoying with incredibly small bore or oily paints. For small bore...I think there were spacers inside...? For the oily stuff...just had to lay it out on a towell as per norm and roll it dry.
I ran mine with a EggyIII. Worked out well as the Egg feeds a decent rate and certainly kept up with the Warp.
Only issues I can think of...really sucks when you get a hose break. I would suggest the 12v mod...and coating the brittle shells in a tape or something as they are brittle and brittle means cracking.
PTP has a few little 'Upgrades' for the Warp. What look to be aluminum adapters and the 12v mod. Of course...you could well build 12v harness with Radio Shack parts. Here's a thread with a little of everything on the Warp.
All in all...if you have average-strong arms...the Warp is a great way to carry your paint somewhat out of the way and be able to snap out without worrying about your hopper leading the way.

Also, if batteries are an issue, I've found an RC battery that puts out 11.2v that is both smaller and lighter than a 9v, and is rechargeable. This battery easily lasts all day. I think I've shot two cases through one battery on one charge.
Downsides are that you have to get a charger as well, and you'll have to modify your battery connection.
