Products Used:
VL200: cheap price, but spring open lid breaks off easily, id give it a 6
Marker Setup: Spyder Xtra:Evil smoke stack, 32degree barrel, electronic trigger 3000psi HP tank & Ricochet G2K loader
Tippman A5: response trigger, other then that its stock...
Strengths: Speed, looks, price, durability,top loading, capacity
Weaknesses: color selection, price of o-rings, avalibility at pro-shops, having to order online
Review: Hey this is a good product even though i havent seen a ricochet off it yet (i wont allow my freinds to purposley shoot it) it does have a GREAT design, one of the best features is the top load unlike the side load on the VL200 this has much less of a chance of spilling a ball(s), the capacity is about equal to a VL200 which claims to hold 200 but in truth holds closer to 170 balls the G2K holds what is says it does 180+ (yes i hand counted them, i have too much time in between weekends)...... The feed rate is also faster then the VL200.....sorry Veiwloader your gravity feed just dosent stand up to this one
Conclusion: Id say buy it if you have a semi auto, the chance of staying in the game a lil longer due to a ricochet can make all the difference, if your going for improvemnt in looks, peed and durability over the VL200 BUY IT

A gravity loader is a gravity loader, how can this feed any faster? It technically feeds the same as a reloader, 12 v revvy or a Ricochet AK/2K, except those agitate to avoid misfeeds and such.

javelin needs to rethink his statement. the g2k feeds faster by having a better design. the vl200 is designed in such a manner that paintballs jam up in the funnel leading to the feedneck, so you have to shake it a lot to get paint to feed. the revvy, rico ak/2k and reloader fixed this by having a fan shaped impeller spin around near the feed funnel. this sort of made it as though it was constantly being shaken up, therefore it has less gaps and is basically an enhanced gravity feed. the g2k doesnt have such a funnel shape so paint just doesnt jam as much and feeds faster.

electronic hoppers do feed faster the propeller spinning around puts the balls down faster but it does avoid misfeeds , and I also am confused on how one gravity fed hopper can go faster than another

Fishtaco, whats with the dispute? I didn't see anything wrong or biased about this review, and you didn't even state why you made the dispute. Also, technically, all hoppers with the exception of the q loader are gravity fed, so no hopper can feed faster than another, just simply jam less. If you took a 10 round single stack tube and used it as a hopper it would feed just as fast as an expensive electro hopper. I hope that clears things up a bit.

Well the warp feed does technically push the ball also, but it's more of a hopper modifier than a hopper. Agreed, please atleast leave a b.s. dispute, rather than one without a comment!
