In Topic: What is a good electronic hopper?

06 March 2016 - 03:07 PM

I'm interested in the rotor, virtue,TFX. Please give me some pros and cons about each hopper and which one I should choose.
Thank you guys

 

it doesn't matter at that point, get whichever you think looks cooler and / or can find cheaper. if it's for a mech or pump gun, get a jt revolution or used viewloader revolution (older, non-xboard version that has black shells and uses 2 9v batteries).

i'd just leave it alone. anything more then 12.5 bps is a waste of paint and air, and it's not field legal (obviously not an issue where you play). it was tested by punkworks; a 12.5 bps rope will hit anything...nobody can run through that, and more than that and you risk severely over-shooting someone. accuracy over volume!

 

also, you're thinking of the lapco piston housing that has the o-ring; techt just has huge vents. you didn't mention a regulator, so that would be the only "upgrade" to get (would need something capable of at least 800 psi output; palmers stabilizer is good). between that, an rva (can't get those anymore though) and a spring kit, you can maximize gas efficiency by fully opening up the power tube (you won't need the fva to adjust velocity). maybe a freak kit and an apex-ready front. that way you can underbore to improve gas efficiency more while still keeping the apex, but at the rof you're doing it may cause barrel breaks.

 

valve...if yours has the four channels in it, you're good. there is nothing better...ndz tried, but it was the same or worse.

 

and yes, everyone is well aware of how "a5 people" are...dumb, by spending several times what the gun is worth on "upgrades", haha! yes, i have an upgraded a5 too, so i'm not exempt lol. i should dust it off; i don't think i've used the poor thing in years.

a scuba tank is a more economical option though, if you only need air for testing your guns at home in-between games at the field. i just take it with me and fill it at the field when it's running low.

Yea I need an air compressor that can get to at least 4500.

Thanks for answering my question!

 

that's what the shoebox compressor is for. invented by tom kaye of agd fame, it uses a shop compressor to refill high-pressure tanks overnight.
