Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
Stock hoppers.
Marker Setup: Tippmann A5.
14" J&J Ceramic Barrel.
Ricochet R5 Hopper.
Adjustable Stock.
Strengths: Get deflections easily.
Black color is nice & simple.
Holds 210 paintballs.
Cap is secure.
Weaknesses: VERY LOUD.
Might slip out of the cyclone feeder.
Review: This review is for the black R5 (which I understand is different than the smoke).

Good:
It looks great on your gun, and has alot better angles than the stupid stock hopper. The cap is very secure, so you don't have to worry about it popping open. It also holds around 210 paintballs as opposed to the 180 that the stock one holds.

Bad:
IT IS VERY LOUD. The plastic is very brittle, so the paintballs make alot of noise inside.
The tab where it fits into the Cyclone feeder is not as thick as the stock hopper. If you tap the front of the hopper the tab can come loose, making me worry that the hopper could fall off sometime (if you turn your gun upside down of course).
Conclusion: I'm torn.
Rating:
5 out of 10
