Rugged Hopper Know any tough ones?

Does anybody know any good electric hoppers that are pretty tough and can stand a lot of abuse so that something like this (hopefully) won't happen again?

I'd go Vlocity, Revvy, or Pulse.
I hate Halo's, nothing but bad experiences....Snapped feednecks like nothing....Pulse was pretty much the same way, but the Vlocity has never failed me.
So yeah, I'd go Vlocity.
I play speedball, and I'm just guessing that you play woodsball, so your hopper probably won't go though the same amount of force that my Halo, Vlocity, or Pulse does when I do a superman dive into the snake. So I'd just narrow it down to those three.
Vlocity's are simple and easy to fix, and are fast. Halo's are a nightmare, and slower then a stock Vlocity, but when upgraded are CRAZY fast. And Pulse's are very simple and Crazy fast, but have a weak feedneck area.
That's my take on it.

But I'm looking for a hopper that will be fairly fast stock, I'm really not all that much into upgrading my stuff due to time constraints with school and stuff. But I don't need something that shoots like 23 bps, I don't have full auto or anything, just my fingers.
@ mrwaterbuffalo: thanks

But the most rugged hopper in my opinion is your standard gravity hopper, or an Archon hopper. Batteries always have a chance of not working, and wiring can make poo go wrong. But gravity hasn't stopped working... yet.
Edit: It's probably best that you stay away from the Ricochet AK then, it has a slower feed rate in terms of hoppers. However, the Ricochet Apache is very much awesome. I believe the Apache can also double as a gravity hopper if need be.
And props for the cool avatar.

Every time somebody purposely overshoots someone, a dolphin is harpooned and eaten alive.
Every time somebody wipes, a family of bunnies gets run over by a Steamroller. That's why they have to reproduce so fast. Theoretically, that's how dinosaurs became extinct.

I have a Halo, and while others complain about breaking feednecks and other various issues, I have yet to see these occur (of course, now every possible bad thing will happen to mine). However, it is pretty heavy, and can make a marker very top-heavy. Just try to test a bunch for yourself. I don't know why you would need 23bps, but that can be obtained with some of the hoppers already mentioned, especially when upgraded. If you wish to shoot that fast, though, you will have to pay a lot more.
