Newbie Question about a T2 and hopper
 
I just got my first CCM. It is a T2, and it has a very low profile feedneck. I played with it yesterday for the first time, and I was surprised when I fitted my normal 100 rd hopper. The hopper stands very tall, and it did not seem to get very tight into the feedneck. Do people cut the hopper's feedneck down on their gravity hoppers? Do people wrap them in tape to increase diameter? If so, what is the normal way to cut them down (hopefully with home construction tools)? What type of tape or other mod?

The easiest solution I've used is to just wrap the hopper in electrical tape. I run into the same issue when using my APP 50rnd or 140rnd hoppers on my T2, and it's solved with a little bit of tape.

You could probably cut the feedneck of the hopper, but usually a longer neck helps create a better ball stack so you won't have to worry about having to shake it as much (Assuming it's a gravity feed).

I like tall feednecks on gravity hoppers, they feed much better than short ones.

Agree'd. I wouldn't chop it, tape maybe, but I wouldn't chop it.

I will give the other side. I chop mine.

In fact, my Sportshot is LOWERED and chopped.

I then wrap it in tape and use the feed as directed.

I rarely to never have feed issues - with that said - I never have over 100 rounds in my sport shot - so I wouldn't expect it.

Just thinking about this last night. Ordered some no rise feednecks for my T2s.

Going to chop my winnys for a slightly lower profile. I don't think it will matter as much cause they are both left feed and have a taller ball stack than center feed.

I like to use heat shrink on the hopper to make it tight in the feedneck.

My sport shot is set up my just like TF's. Chop that sucker and make sure your balls have room to move. It'll be great.

How did you chop it, and what do you mean by lowered?

i use a little cloth hockey grip tape on my feed necks... it doesn't get chewed up or cut like electrical tape.
