I'm just a bit mystified that it's not just a small version of the standard sight feeder. Why fix what ain't broke?

Looks like a Brass Eagle hopper my friend got with his BE gun.

The scope novelty will wear off when some noob flips up your "scope covers" and drops 50ish rounds on the ground, lol.

i understand manufacturing is expensive,like set up tooling and all so why make it so over complicated? i know they cant please everyone but the pump players just need somthing simple and very durable at a reasonable cost

like drg said why not a mini sight feeder,one simple flip lid in 50 75 and 90 capacity like a mini vl90 or somthing.....i just dont understand this one? not bashing just observations.

Price point-wise, I wouldn't pay more than the Winchester hoppers.

I had no power in the design, I told them something similar to their 150 loaders, just smaller. I sent them in a sportshot as an example of what should be made, this is what they came out with.

I opened this post hoping to see a smaller version of their hopper (or similar). I'm sorry to say I'm disappointed. I think they completely missed the boat on this one.

If they had made that hopper, maybe with a few lid options (speedfeed, magnets, etc.), I would have bought two, maybe three, right away.

Same here, but the thing they came up with here I won't buy.

This is truly a sad design. I wonder if they play paintball over there at APP?

Seems to me like the novelty of the design will quickly wear off when you need to buy new lids, or are repeatedly accused of playing on since you can't see the front of the hopper easily... like the old A5 hopper.
