Review: This hopper is GREAT. I am a front player so the hopper holding only 180 paintballs doesn't affect me much (plus i have a harness). Opponents in a game have told me afterward that they witnessed balls bouncing off my hopper. As a test i set it up against a tree about ten feet away. I grabbed my friends gun and took a shot directly at it, when it hit it bounced off and flew into the air hitting a tree somewhere. So this hopper design actually works. The lid is on the top of the hopper which helps a lot, preventing you from losing lots of paintballs. The G2K also has 2 o-rings on the feed neck making it almost impossible for your hopper to fall off.
Conclusion: Nice product by Ricochet. Deflects paintballs resulting in a dramatic decrease in hopper hits. Other great features like the lid located on the top of the hopper and 2 o-ring feed neck. It is a great buy for only a little over 10 bucks. I give it a 9 b/c i wish it held a bit more paintballs, but for the most part it is awesome.

Just so you know this hopper actually holds more than the vl200. The 200 actually holds about 170 they just round it off to make it sound better.
