Never use a gravity hopper when shooting 15 and higher. They dont load as fast and they chop alot.

Actually I am. If you are shooting faster than 15 get an electronic hopper. Your just dumb if you don't. You will find yourself chopping more paint then you are shooting it down the field.

Lets get a few facts on the table. A mechanical semi-auto trigger on a Tippmann cannot exceed 8-9 bps in the most skilled trigger-walking hands. An R/T properly adjusted can exceed that.

The most skilled pro shooter using an electronic double trigger set for true semi-auto mode (no bounce and no ramping) cannot exceed 15 bps. No one tested on Pro teams can even hold that for more than a split second. Best continuous is about 11 bps. A gravity feeder can actually keep up with 11 bps. It just tends to get clogged in the feed neck, which it does even when fired slowly, requiring you to shake the thing to get paint moving. A gravity feed with an agitator will easily do the trick. (even when a gravity feeder stops flowing, it usually doesn't cause a chop...there is just no ball in the chamber when the trigger is pulled)

Claims of 20 bps from an electronic set to true semi-auto mode are a prevarication. A semi-auto player exceeding 15 bps is not a fast fingered skilled player, he's a cheater with a marker modified to get around the rules.

I am going to have to seriously doubt that, considering I (ME!) can hit 16 with no bounce or ramp.

Proof?
