PostSubject: So you wanna buy a FASTA   Tue Aug 07, 2007 2:31 pm

This is coming from me, a FASTA owner. The Kingman FASTA has been taking a lot of crap lately. That is why i'm making this thread.

The FASTA is not a TRUE force fed loader. It uses the methods used in the ricochet hoppers, except improved, it uses a small pad in the raceway to sense when a ball falls. After the ball passes it forces more paintballs down the stack. Its the lightest force fed hopper, weighing in at one pound with batteries. It is also one of the most durable hoppers out there and the feed neck is very strong. The FASTA was proved in a youtube video to feed at 24 BPS on gun.

Some of the CONS!!!: Not true force feed, some people think its ugly, and bad resale

I hope this has helped you in your decision.

I see your point but the rsale is horrible, it looks horrible and the feedneck it terrible. My friend had one, and it snapped whil diving into the center X. I would go with a vlocity with a ganstar chip. You get a fast hopper with a low profile and a very durable feedneck. Stay away from pulses because after the lawsuit they can't make anymore parts which means if your feedneck snaps your screwed. Also thier customer service is terrible and thier return time if you do send your pulse into them is like 4 months.

With Pulses if your feedneck snaps or your shells break, you call/e-mail DXS, get a RA #, then send in your pulse, and they send you a brand new one. I still don't see what people have against Halos.

yes they give you a new one for free but because they have such a limited supply of shells after the lawsuit, the turn around can be from 4 months to 6 months. I have a pulse and it's great but with the turn around time how it is, I wouldn't get one.

no the turn around is not 4-6 months they said that when they were first cleared by the court to fulfill the warrantys it was going to take them along time and no they do not have a limited supply they are required by law because of the warranty to replace your shells and there fore have to make the shells and anything else included in the warranty

i love halos thats what i use i htink i like them because they were the first ones i used and i just learned all about them so i know what to check to see if somethings wrong but they are a little heavy and there are some mods that you need to do to get it to be a good halo but when you do them its great the main ones are the battery on/off mod and the reverse mod(im yet to do thatg one its to complicated and im not that good with a soldering iron but the on/off is a definite necesity

If you guys wanna make a thread that's just general talk about hoppers then do it, this is about the FASTA hopper.
