Red=mod, but not Schmitti

I can see this appealing to the Tippman people, but not those of us that are the regular market for small loaders.

I don't think that I would like to have to point my gun down to reload. I like to keep it in the "ready" position. Lid on top is my preference.
The lids on my APP 50 round guppies are pretty stiff and it appears that they are using them here as well.
Can you reload with one hand?
Will you pop the hopper out of the elbow trying to open it?
I honestly think that it would look much better if they just put a hole in the side of their guppy and not go with the "scope" look.
I don't see it flowing well on a S6 or a purple splash pump Mag.
It would probably look fine on a SL-68 though.

Heck, if anything, it looks like we have a new hopper to mod. Hopefully there are ramps in there, if not, it doesn't seem to difficult to mod it, seal the caps, and put a 10 round tube feedgate on the top to load it. That round protrusion at the top of the hopper looks like the perfect spot for a feedgate.

Not something I would buy. It may look nice on a select few manufactured pumps, and some custom markers; but the majority of pumps are styled in the speedball fashion. They're sleek, clean, and the hoppers that go on top are the same.
Can you imagine this on an S6? Or just about any sniper variation? Most acid washed Phantoms? What if a person already has a red-dot or a scope? Why would they want two? They might snag a chunk the pump brass market, but not a whole lot of the general pump market. At least that's my gut feeling.

I dont think anyone has said this yet but the hopper looks like a "T" pvc pipe piece with two extreme rage pod lid things on either end, and I actually kinda like it cause its unique and not like everyone else's hopper.
