I think it looks awesome for a broadsword. 5oz is nothing! adding that to your gun isnt going todo too much. But I think the other sight hopper is better.

Just a quick note here,
I've been using the A-6 all fall/winter without incident, and there is one more pro that hasn't been mentioned yet. How many times have you pulled a pod for a refill, only to have a quarter of the paint fall to the ground after filling up? I hate waiting till I'm empty to refill, so I usually like to top off whenever I get a chance. Usually I can dump the entire pod with no problems. The last game I played I used the stock hopper, and my habit of dumping the entire pod into a half-full hopper had me wasting paint left and right. Once again, this is just something funny I noticed. Carry On!!

Yes, this hopper adds some weight, and yes, the nipple on the side is easily chewed down by installing and removing it a couple of times. Not to mention the fact that, once filled, it's a bit wobbly.

The weight problem shouldn't be an issue if you're a sabre/broadswordsman. You should be used to carrying alot of air and ammo.

The slight movement and nipple problem are easily cured through tape. I used black duct tape and black electrical tape and now the Hopper moves as one with the gun, rather than being a bit wobbly. It's now extremely sturdy.

It's never been a problem for me as far as being more of a target. What it has done for me is to give me the chance to continue firing when my enemy runs out of ammo. Additionally, it sits higher allowing the use of a red dot sight w/o an offset.

I haven't had a problem with it breaking and I've put it through some serious abuse.

I lay down alot of suppression fire so it's been one of the best upgrades that I've made. If you play dagger, don't get this hopper. If you play broadsword/sabre - GET this hopper.

I personally love this A-5 hopper. When I get into a firefight, most people expect me to stop shooting after 200 rounds and get confused for a few secounds when i continue shooting at then.
