Hopper Suggestion

Hey, guys. I'm about to buy my first semi in...umm...6 years or so, and I'm totally lost on hoppers.
I want something electronic, just to avoid having to shake it all the time like I used to. The gun's an electro, but my field sets a cap at PSP rates (12.5 bps, IIRC), so the hopper doesn't have to be blazing fast or anything. Just enough to feed that 12.5 tops.
So, what's a decent loader that'll feed that reliably without breaking the bank?

This is in the wrong section BTW.

Anyway. Check out the invert halo too or heck even a used Revy. I use a Revy on my Dm4 and my friends G3 and it keeps up just fine.

If you're looking more for a high end loader. I reccomend a used Rotor.

Sorry about the wrong section. I was having the post quick while no one was walking past my cube. I saw "General Chat" and just immediately thought "General Paintball Talk" without reading the description.

Could a mod move this, please?

I think THE hopper for modern fast guns is the Dye Rotor - but - the Revvy will feed 12 with little issue with an impeller.

i don't know why they stopped making the revvy. i'd sooner recommend a used one than those useless ones today. what a jump, you either have to use gravity or pay $70, and the next step up is $170...

a good used revvy is what, $30?

When I started shopping, I saw that they still make Revys and got all excited.
Then I realized that it's a Revy in name only and has the constant agitation like the old POS Quantums. *facepalm*

I have a Proto Primo that feeds all my mechanical semiautos just fine.

Yeah, it sucks... For motorized loaders, my favorite is the old Revvy. I have a Reloader B that I have had for years, but don't ever use it anymore because they are so fragile. seems like every time I have taken it out, some part of it cracks. I don't see myself ever shelling out the dough for a Rotor, which would be my only other choice.
Most of the time, I prefer my non motorized APP 150 though. it's so light comparatively and it feeds very well. only occasionally do I ever have to give it a shake.

For me personally I love the old ricochet hoppers. The feed consistantly at around 12 BPS, and are just solid performers.

That being said, I've heard good things about the kingman fasta too.
