Experience:
6 months
Similar
Products Used:
Ricochet 2K-I can outshoot it really easily... But it's VERY reliable, and the only problem I've ever had was solved by taking it apart and putting it together (and nothing else). Durable as heck.
Gravity hopper-it can't compare. It just can't.
Marker Setup: VL Prodigy E-Grip
Pure Energy 68/4500
Ricochet 2K

And I also used this with...
Spyder Fenix
Viewloader eVLution II
47/3000 HPA tank and 12oz non anti-syphoned CO2 tank.
Dye Excel.
Strengths: -FAST!
-Farther back=tighter to your bunker
-SILENT!
-The lid
-No chops!
Weaknesses: -Looks extremely odd, but since everyone has them, whatever.
-Hard to tell if it's_on_or_not.
Review: I used this today in a 5-man tourney instead of my Rico2K, which I know I can already outshoot, so I figured I'll give up the cool functions of the Rico for some speed today. I wasn't dissapointed. It fed very well. Kept a stack ready at all times. The only problem i had with it was that I had no idea if it was on or not, because the LED is really freaking confusing. it never was really on, it only pulsed once everytime i turned it on and off. Since it did it both ways, I couldn't tell that way. I soon learnt which way the switch had to be to turn it on, so whatever.

I don't think it skipped a ball once during the tournament, but I wasn't shooting too fast, so I hadn't had the chance to test it to it's full potential. It helped me a lot to get out the damned liquid co2 from the gun, without wasting paint when it was turned off, because then it basically doesn't feed. Verry nice loader, I recommend it to anyone with any marker. Don't even bother with a damned 12v Revvy, just buy this.

Also, it is almost completely silent. I could only hear a faint whir when it was feeding, that was probably the best feature of this loader. My Rico2K is waaay too loud.

Edit: I've used this hopper quite a bit, and I haven't chopped a ball or had any problems with it. The battery door is something you don't wanna be hit in, though, as a guy on the team I was with got hit there (along with another dozen places, damn overshooting) and it broke :
Conclusion: If I hadn't just bought the Ricochet 2K, I'd have one of these too right now.

Well, a couple minutes, I figured it out at the chrono while shooting. But the LED on mine was messed, I noticed that the other Eggs at the tourney had LEDs that were always active while on.
