Review: Speed
Well This Is a Motorized Hopper, but definitally not the fastest out their. The balls are pushed down by rubber flappers so its easy on the balls but as that is a plus it also reduces speed. I wouldnt use this hopper on any highend markers (Egos,DM's,Timmys) but would be better on electronic blowback markers like Spyders.

Well starting with the board, it is small, compact, and have yet to see it fry. Next would be the big part, the shell. The shell seems very sturdy and definitally wouldnt crack easily. Although it is very durable, it is also pretty light compared to higher end loders such as the Halo B. On the topic about the shell, I will also add that the Richochet design really does work. For me, about 75% of Hopper Hits always deflect so thats a big plus.

Battery Life
Well considering this runs on 1 9V and Gets more life than my VLocity (2 9V's) It must be pretty good, Exept the fact that it is slower. The loader only feeds every time a ball is shot, so that definitally saves plenty battery life. The Battery Casing is on the back side of the marker and is really easy to remove, as it has no screws to hold it in, just a clip.

Other Features
Some other things that make it cool or not so cool would be The Loader Window, Oring Feedneck, A Top Lid, 1 Button Operation, and last...The Price ;)
On the AK a window comes on the left side of it showing your ball count, looks cool, I never notice it in a game or anything. Its a Nice feature but not totally needed.
Unlike other loaders where you may or may not have to sand the neck, this one comes really small and provides O-rings with it to lock it in place, personally, I dont like this, I have already torn up the ones I needed for my feedneck and im not sure if I can get other ones from the Manufacturor, not a big flaw but still leaves a little to be desired.
Once again, the Richochet is unique with its Top feed, This can be a good thing and a bad thing. Good thing is that once the balls are in they dont fall out because of the angle. Bad thing is that getting the balls in is more of a hassel.
Unlike the 2K Loader, this has no LCD screen, instead its just a 1 Button LED Light. Thats what really seperates the 2 loaders from each other. I like the 1 button for the simplicity and the less money.
And after talking about the button I will tell you about the price ;) Well..lets just say its pretty cheap for what you get. Its a realible, semi fast, and uniquley designed for just about $35-$55 To me thats pretty good. And that price is pretty good compared to the 2K just for the LCD screen that I wouldnt use, and that so said 2 BPS more than the AK.
Conclusion: If you have an E-Framed Blow Back, Semi Autococker, Or anything that doesnt need 32 BPS to work, I would recommend this to you. Very sturdy product and does you good.
8 out of 10
