Not in my neck of the woods. Or more accurately, not any of the paintball fields in the Puget Sound Region. You can go to any field, shoot at whatever BPS you want. Some fields won't let you shoot full auto, but others will allow ramping. Speedball teams that play a league that allows ramping will play at the leagues cap, but the fields don't tell them that they have to limit what their rate of fire is.

Good idea but wrong timing. Maybe this would have marketable years ago but it seams that everyone is turning to pump, pistol, or limited ammo. I see more people turning to mechanical markers or pump than in the 18 years that I have been playing. This is just an epic failure in the making. I agree with the above comment. Capitalize on the Pump momentum and come out with a small motorized hopper. There just isn't that big of a market tailoring to Pump Paintball. If someone needs proof; look at CCM, CCI, PB Mafia to name a few. These companies are now thriving and pump equipment is selling while other companies are headed out.

Semi-only at both of my locals as well. If one catered to a shoot-em-up mentality, I'd go to the other, but they are both pretty decent.

Im not sure about this. I mean, it seems that a lot of players go though a massive amount of paint/bps phase at some point n their careers after which they either 1) keep going (the majority), 2) give it up in favor of limited paint (the minority), or 3) just quit all-together. CCM and the like are doing well, and will continue to do so, but ill bet anything that the majority of their customers at this point are from group 2 rathert han people jumping into paintball for the first time and wanting to play pump. that of course may change in the future (and I hope so) as companies like CCM become more visible and pump play in general becomes more exposed but this product lines up with the industry party-line of "MOAR PAINT AND BPS NOW!!!!!" quite well. that is independent of what players actually want, but most companies are more focused on a strategy of convincing players of what they "should" want rather than what they do want.

That would be AWESOME for SuperGame! I wonder why they didn't go for a case of paint in capacity?

On their facebook page they said this is the most the feeding system on the bottom could handle weight-wise without jamming up

I kinda want to find a way to hook this up to a tpx with the remote line adapter... Then I could attach a Havoc to the tac rails at the bottom and put a 16" a5 barrel on it. Dear god That would be an awesome way to play pistol

Sorry, was I shouting just then?
I still don't understand the need for a 100 or 75 round motorized hopper. What is so wrong with a 200 round motorized hopper? If you try to put 75 rounds into it, do they magically not fit or something?

My understanding on that is for the pumpers to have a small profile hopper that isn't a shake & bake
