Products Used:
Revvy 12V w/ X-board - the shell broke!!!!
Marker Setup: Spyder Imagine w/ 14" Taso Winforce, Ricochet AK, tank w/ on/off valve
Strengths: feeds well, great warranty, bounces balls, looks cool
Weaknesses: kind of heavy
Review: I'm very pleased with this hopper. For about 50 dollars I ordered this hopper for my new e-marker. The hopper feeds very well, agitating after every shot, and on semi I could not outshoot it. At 13BPS fire, there were a few skips here and there, but nothing much(who actually sustains fire at 13 BPS for that long anyway?) The hopper comes with several o-rings to make sure that it fits perfectly into your elbow. If you break the hopper(I couldn't imagine you doing it, it's very durable), call the Ricochet people, and they will send you a new one no questions asked. The other hopper I tried, the Revolution 12V w/ X-Board, was definitely not as good. It fed slower, and it only feeds when it detects a gap(as opposed to feeding after every shot), so you're either preventing the problem with the Ricochet or waiting for it with the Revvy. The hopper is supposed to bounce balls too. From the front, it will sometimes bounce balls, which is kind of cool. Try looking into the Empire ReLoader too, it is usually cheaper and it supposedly feeds a little bit faster.
Conclusion: I was overall very pleased with this hopper. If you want a good solid electric hopper, get this one.

I'm not so sure that the empire reloader is any faster. It's a different method of loading. But hey, I might be wrong.
