Products Used:
9v Revy- Much better than the 9v, the 9v isn't a very good hopper, but that a different revy
12v Revy- Pretty much the same performance, although the new revys have the brittle shells which make them bad. My old revy is just fine. I perfer the Ricochet though, it feeds just a bit faster
Empire Reloader- Just about the same as the Ricochet, both are great loaders
RicochetAK- Same as Ricochet 2k, but without all the "bells and whistles"
EggyII- EggyII can feed much quicker, but it is more expensive. If you are not shooting more than 12bps you don't need the Eggy anyways, the Rico will suffice
HaloB
Marker Setup: My "back up" Setup
Green Spyder Xtra, 12" CP One Piece barrel, Cocker Reg, White Wolf Delrin Bolt, TASO Turbo Valve, psycho ballistics drop forward, Black Benchmark C/A, 32* LPC, Java Aluminum Feed Adapter, 2k Black Ricochet, ESP Frame, Crossfire 47ci/3000 Nitro
My new "main" setup:
2002 Black Autococker, Hinge trigger, 10" Dye alumnium barrel, Black 2k Ricochet, KAPP Rhino Drop, Crossfire 47ci/3000 Nitro
Strengths: Durable, Fast, and Great Customer service
Weaknesses: Ball counter doesn't do it's job
Review: This is an excellent loader its
-Light
-Fast (12bps)
-Durable
-Pretty Cheap
-Customer service owns

If your running a semi marker, this is the loader for you (or a reloader). It can feed at 12bps which will easily keep up with your marker. If you have full auto you have a little problem. On full auto you will be shooting 13bps, it only feeds 12bps. I have found that it isn't really a problem on my spyder when I'm shooting full auto, but if you have the extra cash get the eggyII

The Ricochet customer service is the best. You call em up and tell em you need a new pair of shells, they'll send a pair right out to ya. There amazing

The only think I found bad about this loader was the counter. It just doesnt work, there's nothing else to say

I really think it's better to go for the Ricochet AK and save some money because the counter doesn't work and you don't really need the game timer. If you do really need the timer, than get the 2k, if not get the AK
Conclusion: Overall, great motorized hopper, stops the chopping and keeps the balls coming at a constant rate. Costumer service owns!
Rating:
8 out of 10

you need to set the ball counter up and down if it's not accurate like it come, which it probably isn't. It's in the manual

I agree with customer service....I called and said i wanted to buy a new bend sensor for mine..they asked for my name and address and said they'd send it out..Free stuff is the best.

the empire reloader blows this P.O.S out of the water.this feeds 12 bps MAX while i did a drop test with the empire reloader and found out that it maxes out at 15.42 bps.
