The Ricochet-2k agitates with each ball fired, never leaving you without a ball to shoot! The Ricochet-2k operates on one 9 volt battery, and averages about 5000 shots for the battery life. This makes the Ricochet-2k one of the most economical paintball hopper's on the market today.
The Ricochet 2K Ricochet-2k Hopper is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Everything the whole hopper is great!!!!!!! The features are unbelievable, it agitates with every shot so it never jams on me, the game timer is great for tournaments, the ball counter is a plus because I don't have to open up my hopper to see how low on paint I am getting. The shape is awsome because I really did get bounces off it. And it fits snug into any gun.
Nothing, sure the price is a little high but it is worth the money for all the things you get.
This hopper is great it is worth the money to buy, it is way better than the view loader, and I recommend it to any one out there that plays paintball. The best hopper I have ever played with
sleek design, have not chopped a ball since i got it. game timer and ball counter get ya cool looks on the field. fit perfectly in my screw elbow no sanding. shot a case of paint and did not have a problem with missed feeding. love that the balls cannot go back in the hopper or neck when you turn the gun on its side.
too damn loud. those beeps are annoying and so loud. i took mine apart and stuff cotten in the little hole for the speaker to get rid of the sound. other than the annoying sounds i dont have a problem with it
good product and with the price increase on the rev's and evol's why not buy this. worth the money i paid for it although i swore i would not ever need a battery powered hopper.
It looks cool...I think it lowers your radar signature to that of a swallow. It only needs one 9v battery instead of 2. It is easier to replace the batteries in and our of. Feeds about as fast as a 12v revy when it isn't jammed.
since it only agitates when balls are feeding I have had to shake it a few times when the agitating didn't feed a ball. I also have had it jam and was reboot it to get it to agitate again and feed a ball. Sometimes it doesn't agitate, I think that the sensor lever, might not be set right on mine. The sides don't deflect paintballs...as far as I have noticed.
I think that you are better off with a revy all things considered.
A 12v Revy is cheaper
I have never had a jam in my revy.
12v revy keeps agitating when there isn't a ball being fed.
A 12v isn't anywhere near as loud as the R2K.
If you don't want a revy because they are owned by BE. Wait for the Halo hoppers in Sept. They are supposed to be much better than anything out there.
-deflects balls once in a while or makes them spray instead of a direct hit
-loads almost 11 balls/sec (i tested it)
-the ball counter is cool and it beeps so u know when to conserve your shots
-game timer is cool
-get more shots then revy with battery
it is alot noiser then the 9v revy and it gets annoying but at least its not BE!!!!!
its kinda expensive but if u have a full auto its a must- its better then the revy's cuz it loads better richochets balls and is alot better on batteries. buy it if u have the money
Again, agitates after every shot. Hiccups less frequent that with a Revolution. One battery. Has counter and timer. Deflection tech. Softer paddles. Balls can't pop back out of elbow into hopper, one way feed! Lid is on top, not top/side, so less likelyhood of a spill. Made out of very high quality material. Rev plastic is so thin by comparison. Looks cool.
The fact that you might need to sand the bottom so it'll fit is not a disadvantage... how many times have Revs been to small? This way you have a perfect fit!
One disadvantage.. holds approx. 15 less balls than a Rev. Uh-oh..
Bought mine for 125 Can, where as a 12v Rev is 130.
Ricochet is cheaper, has deflection tech, softer paddles, counter, timer, and is lighter. Made out of much better material. New Revs crack way too easily.
This is the best loader out there, no matter how you look at it.. unless you have a "brand" pref.
I would recommend this to everyone, except B.E. diehards :P
-Gets around 5000 shots for one 9vlt
-As fast as the 12vlt Revolution, using one battery
-Timer and ball counter built in
-Deflects some balls
-You don't have to hold hopper on angle
-Padles paint gentaly
-May have to sand down bottem of hopper
-A little expensive
-Doesn't count balls very well-5/100 off
Buy this, the 12vlt revy uses 2 batteries and loads fewer balls
It is really worth it
This product is awsome, it agitates with every shot so it never jams up.
the game timer and ball counter is great to have on the back of the gun.
The reload alarm it a great new feature.
The look is cool, and I have had at least 7 ricochet since I have had it.
Fits snug with no need for tape.
This hopper RULES!!
Not a thing is wrong with it.
In conclusion the hopper is great and it is worth the price for everything you get , and it sounds like "PIG's" review is a little off, because the ricochet 2K is great I think he needs to try one before he talks bad about it. GREAT PRODUCT RICOCHET!!!!!!!!!
The agitation works after each shoot instead of waiting for an empty spot in the neck of the feed tube like the VL. It did not miss feeding a ball in over 1500 shots. The build in timer is a nice feature and easy to get at. I like the design and it can deflect balls. Not always but one is enough for me. Out of three hopper hits in a tourney it deflected one. I liked the way the lid stays in the up position when I loaded the hopper. I also used the shot counter to tell me when to reload. It does beep when you are low on balls but I liked to use the shot counter instead. Its feed rate is excellent, I could not outshoot by Excalibur. Wish my team mate had one at the last tourney. He has a BM2k and was chopping balls because he was out shooting the hopper.
It is pricey. The constant agitation in a room is noticable but in a game I did not notice it at all due to the gun blasts. The timer is preset for 10 minutes which is fine except there is no way to set this into memory. There is a memory but it is determined by your last setting if you leave the Ricochet 2k turned on. I like to turn it off between games which means it resets to 10 minutes. On my Ricochet I had to sand down the neck to fit my marker. No big problem, took 5 minutes.
If it gets one deflection in a tourney it is worth its price compared to the VL. I recommend it to the serious player who fires at a high rate of speed. There is nothing worse than out shooting your hopper and chopping a ball. The build in shot counter and on the board timer makes it a full featured hopper. Over time the price will come down but it sure beats the heck out of the Evolution and the VL!!! I would buy it again!
It looks different than whats out there
The feed tube is now the correct size, yeah!!!
The paddles are gentle with paint
Only one battery needed
Digital Paint ball counter
no need for an eye sensor, don't trust them much, too sensitive to conditions
The lid works better than the other agitating Hoppers <VL>
Battery compartment is a great design
Expensive, but saw it online a week after I got mine for $25 less ~80.00
Way too complicated to adjust the timer and other settings on the field
It does'nt deflect balls any better than other feeders, I was getting the Hopper hits there, usually on top
A clear or Transparent Colour Shell would be better than opaque blk Skin
Very noisy, but in a game situation it's harder to notice, but in a room it's LOUD
Feeds inconsistently, on occasion it would not feed the ball?
Beeping can give your position away when you least expect it, Game Timer
Recommended only if they want a new look to their hopper choices
Feeding can be spotty, agitation always occurs after each shot, so why does it feed so irregularly
