i know, hence the appeal of it, but have you noticed how pretty much *every* hopper on the market sits to high... my vibe only does 11 bps... im throwing around the idea of getting the led version of the frontman halo came out with. it looks nice but everyone says the feed neck is too weak... wonder why they make them out of that brittle stuff instead of the same plastic the gravity hoppers are made of.

however if someone were to replace the solenoid with one designed to feed gas to the cyclone feeder every shot along with the normal front/back pressure operation of the bolt you would have a very low profile hopper that agitated on every shot and required no batteries... hopefully one day tippmann will start putting them on other peoples guns instead of just their own guns. i mean the a-5 is great, but front heavy... very front heavy, and by the time you put the money into dropping its operating pressure and adding a double trigger to an e-grip you would have spent enough money to buy something like a G3.
also not sure anyone is still paying attention since we got off on a rant and all but more realistically most of us want to see more compact, lower sitting loaders in the 12 to 13 bps range...

I hadn't noticed your link before. It's a valid idea. However, you'll run into a few problems. One being that the SP1 mechanism is entirely internal, and all of the moving parts are pressurized. So beyond milling through the marker, you'll need to seal the chamber along the entire stroke of the mechanism.
Also, If I'm not mistaken, a push forward on the cyclone rod feeds the next ball. With your mechanism, this would occur on the forward stroke of the bolt, which means you'd be mashing the ball into the now closed chamber. That said, I'm not sure that my initial premise is correct.

If that makes any sense.. I can draw up a schematic if it doesn't.
