Looks interesting. If the price is cheep enough it could be worth it. Might be cool on a pump. I wish they had a 100 round or smaller one... I would buy it.

Mmm. I like how equal ammounts of paintballs are trying to drop into one feed tube from two sides. Definately wont be shake free. Might be decent.

Sightfeeder used to make their hoppers with that idea.

Sightfeeders are APP products, think they are still in production. The difference is that the sightfeeders arent divided on top like this. Wonder if it works well. In my mind it seems like a gimick but maybe it works.

Woah. This is either wicked Dejavous or there is another thread about this same hopper somewhere on MCB. Maybe the old one before it went down?

I remember someone compairing it to some old "Fishlips" hopper style which I am not familliar with.

I actually bought one of those for $6 off ebay because my VL-2000 used to jam a lot and they honestly do work. I only had it jam once on me in 1500 rounds up at Skirmish and that was because I had it overfilled. For the price you can really do no wrong. One thing though. If you are used to the beefy thickness of the VL-2000 you will be disappointed with the thickness of this hopper. I don't think it is that big of an issue but I wouldn't try stepping on it.

I know the old clear green ammo box hoppers used a similar idea to this and I seem to recall another that was almost this exact setup
