Review: When I got this as a gift I was thrilled, for it was exactly what I wanted and I loved the looks of the shell. It also came with a nifty LCD screen with multiple usages. The orings on the feedneck ensured a tight fit, in fact a little too tight. So, I took them off and it works just as well.

The Loader's sticker friendly. In fact, I believe it's more sticker friendly than most other loaders that have curved type designs while the Ricochets have the geometric design. The ball counter can help but it's not that accurate. Oh, the lid is pod friendly, too.

However, there are no aftermarket boards for the Ricochet 2k. Most guns of today are capable of reaching over 12 bps (balls per second) making the Ricochet 2k a little outdated for its time.
Conclusion: Over all I'd have to say if you're a die hard Ricochet fan get the Apache instead of the 2k. Other than that, the reloader's just as good and cheaper.

Over all I give this product a 7 because it's a little too outdated but it has a nice concept.
7 out of 10
