Experience:

Products Used:
tested 12v Revy without x-board.
Marker Setup: 98c with 14" Dye Ultralight, phsyco balistics double trigger, Ricochet 2k hopper.
( Nitro soon)
Strengths: Feeds very fast. It's only missed maybe once out of about 3,500 shots.
Agitator never breaks balls in the hopper.
Game timer is easy to program and start.
Looks cool- way better than any Revy.
lid doesn't pop open easily, and when it does it doesn't spill your paint all over the ground.
Design will deflect paint every now and then.
LCD screen intimidates nebies who have never seen anything like it.
Weaknesses: not anything serious but..
1. Has a tendency to drain battery a little more than I hoped it would.
2. The o-rings that secure the feed neck to the elbow have a tendency to wear and break.
3. The shot counter is not that accurate.
But batteries are not that expensive, and I'm sure the people at Ricochet will send you new o-rings if you break the ones it comes with.
The shot counter is more of a gereralization. I don't really pay a whole lot of attention to it though, so maybe it is just me.
Conclusion: Very well designed, and priced reasonably for what you get. I've never had it not agitate when it should be doing that. Like I said, it impresses those who have never seen an electronic hopper. I like to see their faces when you turn it on and it beeps and agitates. They all want one after that. But besides that, the product is dependable. The o-ring situation can be frustrating. Since I have a 98c, what I've been doing is just detaching the elbow and leaving it on the hoper's feed neck. This reduces the wear on the rings and is also quicker that pushing it in and pulling it out. The batteries and counter is no big deal. You can program the counter to custom settings, but i'm to lazy to do it. It probably works great if you do that. Worth the price and your confidence.
