It’s one of the many trade-offs paintball players have to deal with on their markers; do they choose to have a high or low capacity paintball hopper? Both choices have their pros and cons; a low capacity hopper is going to weigh less and make your marker easier to maneuver, but at the cost of paintballs. With a high-capacity gravity hopper, you have much more paint, but your marker is going to feel a lot more weighed down. Depending on your play style, one may work better than the other for you. Exactly which one and why, we’ve spelled out in this video here, but if you’d rather read on, we’ve got all the highlights written down below.
Never underestimate the difference a good hopper can make in how well you play. Unfortunately, finding a good hopper can be a bit time consuming. Should you by this automatic hopper?
