Look, I know everyone is going to say that i should save up for an electric hopper, but i dont need one because i have a mech gun, I want a good hopper that isnt that costly...is the proto a good one?

It's about as good a mech hopper as you can get.

I use this on my pump. It is way better than a traditional shake n shoot, but I still need to shake it sometimes.

If you are willing to spend the money I'd get a 9v spider fasta. 50 dollars I think. Plus if you add a speed feed from a distance it kind of looks like a pinokio but you can tell its not when you are closer and see that there is no space for the nose.

i dont think he needs an electric loader for his mech, as why does it looking like a nokio have anything to do with buying one?

I used to chop with these on my automag. It would beat a Primo for sure though.

The Primo is as good as shake-and-shoots get. I have one and like it. The pros and cons are the same as they'd be for any good shake-and-shoot: Limited maximum rate of fire...advertized at 9 bps, but you'll only get that for a few shots in a row. Sooner or later, you'll need to shake it, and the average rate will go down. I've never had chops, but I only use mine for pump. I like not having to deal with batteries, power buttons, or settings when I'm playing rec ball.

Basically for me 100 and under capacity can be grav fed. 150+ should be electronic one way or another. That should tell you I mainly use my sportshot and app 50rd on my pump mainly lol or if I wanted to fuck around, stickfeed on the axe

Yes it is a good mech hopper it stayed up with my Mini on semi 6 bps. And it stayed up with my ego 09 to so its pretty good hopper. Imagine it with a mech gun. So it should stay up VERY good with your mech gun.

I have used mine on a couple guns. Mostly it's used on my SL-68II pump. But I have used it on my classic 68 AutoMag and a Tippmann A5 (with a force products hopper adapter). On all three it worked very well with no problems. I love this hopper.

Honestly, I have used both and a regular shake-and-shoot isn't that far behind the primo. If you want to please your feeding needs and cant save a bit more for a reliable electronic hopper investment, more power to ya with the primo. after all its only 15 bucks.

I have a Primo too and it's great. Feeds better than any other gravity feed I've used. However, if you're pressed for cash, check out the Vlocity or Vlocity Jr. Both are solid electrics and usually pretty cheap these days.
