Review: This was my first time paintballing, but I could tell tihs was a great loader. It looks so much better than the standard VL-200, and I had no problems with the top staying closed like my friend with a VL-200. This also feeds fast enough for me to shoot at 10BPS without chopping.
Conclusion: If you want somthing nicer than a Vl-200, but don't have enough for a nice electronic hopper get this!
9 out of 10

Re: Raised Logo's and no stick.
Just carefully take a fine file to the raised bits and finish with super-fine grit paper. Don't go overboard, but it may solve the oh-so-troublesome sticker issue.

There is no way that this hopper can go 12 bps...the Ricochet AK barely goes 12 bps

10 bps my a$$ try more like 5. The 12v revy only goes 11-12 bps

Logically, it should be possible that this loader would feed as fast as an AK or Revvy. Agitated hoppers only stir up the paint to keep balls from jamming up and not dropping into the feed tube, which commonly occurs if you overload your hopper. Agitated loaders still rely on gravity to drop balls down the tube and into the chamber of the marker. Now, provided that balls in the G2K loaded consistently into the feedneck without stalling, the force of gravity pulling those shots into the marker is exactly the same as the force of gravity loading balls from an agitated loader. Unless your loader has some sort of force feed that puts pressure on the shots to force them into the chamber faster than the force of gravity, such as a Halo or Q-loader, the only "speed" advantage that an agitated hopper has over this one is to avoid blockages, and eliminate the need to "shake" your hopper. If I were going to shoot about 10 BPS I would get an agitated loader for that reason, but if you are going to shoot a stock, semi-automatic, mechanical marker there is no reason that the G2k should have any problems, provided you don't overfill it and don't mind the occasional shake to keep the balls loading.
