What hopper do you use?

Just curious what hoppers y'all use, there is always so much talk about markers here we never discussed hoppers a lot

Primary - spire 3
Backup - rotor r1
Pump - Halo tsa frontman

I cycle through a bunch, depending on what marker I'm using. It could be: 50rd APP, 100rd Sportshot, Revy with cool tigerstripe cover, GoG LVL, or Dye LTR.

Current selection:
Stock: fancy brass tube feed
Pump: APP 50rnd
'Cocker: VL2000

Also an XBoard Revy for my Drop10 to load tubes.

Considering what I play with, hopper technology stopped with revy's. I did play with a warp feed at one point, but wasn't super impressed.

Cyclone primarily. One of the brands of sport shots for pumps/hopper 'pistols'. Revvy if I want to go old school, Vmax+ if I want to go fast.

I have 3 hoppers.

-Virtue Spire 2 w/spring ramp and SF Crown
-VL eyeball revi w/ Empire Reloader internals (sound activated)
-Winchester 50 round w/ APP pod lid

I use the Spire on my CS1 and Trilogy. I use the revi or Winchester for pump. I used to use the revi on my trilogy as well, but the spire is lower profile so I tend to use that now. Not to mention I like the speedfeed.

Check out the Halo tsa.

They made 2 size versions, frontman and Blackman. Back is like 220 capacity, front is around 180

Led version with just a simple button and light, lcd with a screen

Sounds activated, agitators, one of the super cool things though is the arms always spin in the direction to push paint towards the feedneck. If the hopper is leaning left they will rotate clockwise and if leaving right, counter-clockwise

Magnetic lid

Last I saw, ans was selling NOS shells still so you can find a cracked and beat up one and replace the shells for like $16 or something


Edit: went and checked, $8 whole dollars for a new left and right shell. $12 if you want the battery door as well

Did they make a spire 2? I thought it went original spire, then they released the 200 shell and selling them from the factory with the 200shell, then spire 3

If that's not the case what's different between the spire 1 and 2? Google sure doesn't pull any results when you search for spire 2

I really only play mech these days.

Spire IR is primary, X-board revvy is backup.
