Experience:

Products Used:
Ricochet AK/2K- the predecessor, not superior, but quality
Egg- Crap comapred to the Apache... outright. slower, uglier, sh*tty quality, only advantage is higher capacity
halo- only advantage over apache is force feed (allows you to shoot sideways)
Marker Setup: Featherlight Viking (wased w/eyes) cross45/4500, apache laoder, empire barrel kit
Strengths: Fast, light, game timer, no sanding, looks sweet, feeds like its vomiting paintballs :)
Weaknesses: NOTHING IMO
Review: I cant belive this thing... I got a great deal ($80.00 new) and I thought it was impressive just emptying into a pod... then I saw it hit 18 without ANY problems... probably coulda went higher but my fingers cant walk that fast :).... Remember what everyone said when they first put the Halo on their angels and impulses and timmys? this drew the same reactions tonight...

This is one of the most well designed loaders ince the halo. Id say they are Equal when the pros and cons are balanced.
Conclusion: Buy it and use it. If you have a halo, and it works well for you, stick with it. Personally, I prefer a little lighter weight and the looks of the apache. If you are using an egg, sacrifice it to whatever god you pray to and buy an Apache. They are superior in every aspect aside from paint capacity.

Whats wrong with an egg? I used to own a Rico2k, which had cheap shells, strippable screws, and slow. I dont know about the apache, but the EGG2 is good in every aspect, except its profile.

on he halo you forgot to mention its faster. Ricochet spokepeople even admitted that it was meant to compete with the egg, not the Halo.
