Warp feed/ electro hopper etc...

Hey guys,

I've been looking into adding a Warp Feed to my arsenal. My question is - do you all think that I'm a real tight wad if I only want to marry it to a cheapie electro hopper (12v revvie or Rhino...)

Yep, it's lame, but I like the warp design/ low profile - I'm just no fan of spray and pray. (That and I'm thinking of either my BT16 or mech Spyders, so max bps is going to be something like 8 lol...)

Any other ideas for a cheaper alternative based on a similar layout?

Could I make a bracket and mount the revvie side saddle to the marker? Is there enough power to feed the marker from the hopper through hose (qloader style) to the feedneck?

What solutions would you all come up with?

I've only ever seen the warp hooked to the Revvie.
Proteam used to make a "universal" kit, that allowed the Warp to fit most guns.

I have a 12V Revvie w/ X-board mounted on my Warp, and it feeds just fine for me. I've easily shot in the 8bps range, and it doesn't starve the marker for paint.

A bracket for the warp should be fairly easy to make. Just a matter of getting the correct spacing for the mounting holes. There are a few different pre-made versions out there. The standard bracket has crescent-shaped holes to allow for adjustability. Luke used to make a custom bracket, but I don't see it listed on his site anymore.

The revy itself isnt a force feeding hopper, it's impossible for it to force paint through a hose. Other hoppers, something like a halo minimum, can prob do it.

Warp feeds, if you hunt them, go for about $30-$40 shipped in the US for the basic, but I understand the whole being in Canada thing can make it a bit more difficult.

I just use a basic warp feed with a revy, it's fast enough for my slow fingers.

Thanks for the replies.

Understanding next to nothing about electric hoppers, I'm assuming that a force feed hopper would be the one I'd want if I decided to do a custom job... ?

So other than the Halo, what loaders fall into this category?

Halo, vLocity, eVLution (egg), as well as the newer ones like the Magna, etc.

Have you considered or ruled out a Q-Loader?

Definitely not ruled out Mayvik - I actually own one, it's just adding too much weight to the marker - see if you can find the link to my BT16 bullpup - too much aluminium, I'm afraid.

I've played a few games with it and it works a treat, the whole marker is just too heavy and reloading the qpods is time consuming and a real pain in the ***. (I have one of my friends help me load my pods - much easier with two of you to do it.)

I think I just like the look of the WarpFeed when mounted and I want to have another toy for my other markers...

There, with a halo you dont have to run the tube through the hopper and still keep it tight.
