Review: Well first off I only tested it at home but I'll make another post when I use it at the field.Well I'v had the response trigger for a year and was sick of chopping with my gravity hopper. But I don't like loud loaders since I play at a scenario/Woodsball field.Not only did I want a quieter loader, but I'v heard stories of neck sensors in some loaders not detecting black shell paintballs. Since my field has field paint only and half the shell is black i needed an alternative.Instead of a vision sensore it has a tab so you can use any kind of paint. Trust me its very nice.The paddles also seem to be very nice on the paint unlike some where it chops the paint in the hopper. I've only seen where it comes in black but that's the color I wanted anyway to go with my 98. It has an unique shape that suppose to reflect hits on the hopper instead of getting out cause someone hit you on your hopper.I dont know how this works but as I said I'll make another post.But whats nice about it is the side facing you part of its see through so you can see how much ammo you have left and they can't
Now for the silencing. I was amazed how i filled my hopper barrely and ran and did not hear any rattle unlike, well every other loader. So as they said its good for sneaking around and being undetected or going for that special sniper spot. Now for the agitating it wasnt the same it was a little bit less noisy than most of your electronic loader but not greatly. But it realy doesnt matter for me cause they'll hear my "98 clang"
So they'll only hear it when your firing and maybe a second after. To fix this though I'm looking into a loader cover to silence/muffle the agitation.But its great for sneaking around as I said.
I used it today and i was wrong the motore compared to others is quieter it was just loud when I was testing cause I didn't have paint in it (I was pressing the tab in the neck). You still hear it but not as much as others
Conclusion: Im going to give it an 8 because kindof misleading,but it didnt say silences agitation, it said it silences ball movement in hopper and it does a great job of that.I think its just an Ak with silencing material.If your getting an AK might as well get this one for the same price to prevent ball rattle.And remember if you have a Blow-back marker like me when it agitates they already hear your gun firing and when you stop shooting it stops agitating.And if you already have a ricochet I'v seen where you can buy the silencing padding for 10 bucks and says it will fit any ricochet.

Because i bought it not knowing if it was bad or a good product. And I didn't mark it down because of that fartnoker(nice screename by the way). I gave it 8 cause of noise of agitation not cause I was first one to write review.
