Review: Borrowed the hopper from a friend because my lid on my Revvy broke and I can't find a replacement for it. My friend wanted to get rid of it for a reason I cannot remember. So I told him that I would try it out to see if I liked it. I didn't like it. I Loved it! It kept up with with my autococker the whole day. I used the timer for every round of play with my schools paintball club because we did not want to be out there for hours. I found the the screen easy to use and felt like a master of it really quickly. I like how when you turn it on right before you start it kinda scares new players who are already are on edge. My Revvy had trouble keeping up with my Spyder so i'm pretty sure that the Ricochet would have no problem keeping up with that since it kept up with my autococker. Also it is much lighter and smaller in hieght then the Revvy witch helps when your peeking around corners and bunkers when you tilt the top in to minamize your apperence.

Update: Noticed that the body was starting to crack around the top front screw. No problem though the body is strong and I loosend the screw. Perfomence is still great. The battery is low and I keep forgetting to change it. Would like to say more on its performence since I first posted this review, but my 3-way on my 'cocker is spewing air out the front and I keep loaning my Xtra out so I havent had the chance to really "Have Fun" with it.
Conclusion: I love it. Plain and simple. I would recomend it to anyone who doesn't like the top heavy feel of a Revvy and want something different. I would give it a ten but I have yet to use it a lot. And that Richochet doesn't exist anymore, so parts might, just might, be hard to find. But these have been known to be reliable.
