Review: I have run probably every agitated hopper made at one time or another. I liked the Ricochet 2K and was using it for a long time. But after I went to a Raceframe on my Gen X it just couldnt keep up. So with a little playing on the 2K I was able to speed it up a bit. But not much. So I tried about everything else that was fast at loading. Halo Downside is what kept me looking. Then Ricochet came out with the Apache. At a feedrate of 17-19 bps it will keep up with just about every electronic marker out there. Not many people can shoot 17 bps without going full auto or turbo mode. So it should keep up with just about everyone. It still maintains its deflection design which adds to its usefulness. A tad pricey but worth it. Weighing in at 16 oz with batteries versus the Egg II at 20 oz and the Halo B at 24 oz. If you are worried about weight at all it is the lightest in its class. It keeps up with me and my Racegun Halfblock, so it should be able to keep up with you. Only found one downside, which really isnt a downside at all. I let the batteries get a little low on me and it slowed way down. Other then that, which was really my fault for trying to run a set of 9 volts to far, I have 0 complainants.
Conclusion: Fast, Light, REALIABLE (Halo B isnt), well worth its price.
9 out of 10
