I bought an X7 hopper for my A5 last week and I'm very pleased. I have used the stock hopper, Tac-Cap, and Ricochet for my A5. So far this is the best by far. It's offest allowing you to clear your sight line for optics without putting a crazy bend or angling the hopper akwardly. The thing I didn't expect it to have was such a low profile as well. It's shorter but wider to allow the same amount of paint in it. This much improves your field of vision if your low-carrying your marker. That little bit goes a long way if your marker is up close to your face. The plastic isn't as sturdy as the stock and not nearly as stout as the Ricochet. It's a little more flexible which time will tell if this is adventagious or not. I've never gotten a bounce off my hopper but I'd like to once and while :D All in all for $8 I now have a Ricochet I paid way more for that is basically useless except for a spare notw.

I heard the x7 hopper tends to hold balls in the front, and the marker has to be tilted backwards to release them. Is this true?

does it fit tightly in the a5 cyclone feed? that is the only thing i worry about, the hopper doesnt seem to have that little plastic piece that holds it in place

I have no sig, because I am cool like that.
