Review: Well, with much anticipation I got my Ricochet AK Sniper in and played with it! It performed well on my Spyder Imagine, and kept up with it VERY well. I emptied a whole hopper with out any chops.

Another great feature is the tabbed sensor. I considered many hoppers before I bought this one, and one of the deciding factors was the feedneck tabbed sensor. The hopper detects when it needs to drop in another paintball via a tab in the feedneck. I like this better than the "eye" sensor because I can use black paintballs and the hopper will keep spinning.

One other plus is the motor itself is not very loud, and it doesn't keep agitating. After you shoot it agitates for about 2 seconds and stops. When you are in the heat of battle, the two second agitation isn't even noticeable.

The rubber coating on the inside is a definite plus! It makes the rattling of paintballs go away. So that was one less thing to give away my position. However I did notice one problem with the rubber coting. Every once and a while a paintball would slip between the hopper body and the piece of rubber. This would be a problem because it jammed up the motor. So a simple fix would be hot-glue. I did this and I have zero problems with it!

This hopper keeps up great with my Spyder 2k3 Imagine (at 14bps), however, I would suggest buying a better hopper (Halo B) for a gun that fires more than 14bps

The last great feature is the superb warranty. Although I havn't had any problems (and I don't expect any) if the hopper shell ever breaks Ricochet will send me a new hopper shell free, no questions asked, you can't beat that!
Conclusion: With a superb "ball rattle" silence, great sensor, and an unrivaled warranty, who could ask for any better? (other than a Halo B or Empire Reloader or something else for over $100, lol)

On your setup it just says "Kingman Spyder" what are you trying to say? Last time I checked "Kingman Spyder" isnt a type of paintball gun. And is your barrel a 19.5? What is that I've never heard of a barrel that ends in a half inch.
