uh that "snub" looks really easy to break paint on from the front... do not like.

I really should consider building a custom hopper with my z-board and various hoppers/pods... I've got a lot of **** to choose from

true, but I haven't found a regular viewloader style shell to bounce any of my hopper hits anyways.

very true, they don't. I've stuck with smaller, non agitated hoppers for pump play because of the smaller profile and lack of batteries, but it would be nice to have something electric that kept the small profile, then the only downside is the batts

Just cutting the front off doesn't really change the profile...here's what I did to make a smaller hoppper:
