A chrome plated hopper with Ultra Violet LEDs inside to energize Glo-In-The-Dark paintballs. The LED apparatus takes the place of the AGITATOR. There is NO AGITATOR IN THIS HOPPER! Uses one 9V battery to power the LEDs.
The Ricochet 2K Ricochet AK UV is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Tippmann 98 Custom
Titanium Lite Bolt
30" Homemade Sniping Barrel
and a few homemade trigger, bolt, and sear modifications
I needed to replace batteries after 2 years
It DOES bounce balls
Not waterproof. :(
I've been using one of these a couple of years and I've finally had to replace the batteries. They lasted forever, or so it seemed. I use one of these because with all my trigger mods to my 98 Custom, the stock gravity feed couldn't keep up. Now that the Ricochet is also gravity feed (I already mentioned it wasn't waterproof), it can still keep up because of the feed dish in the bottom. The Ricochet feature does work, unfortunately I was sniping and a ball bounced off the hopper and busted on my mask. The lid also locks in place so you don't get popped hoppers.
Overall, it's durable, has a great loading speed, makes balls bounce and isn't a battery hog. I bought one and it might be one of the best mods I've made to my gun.
Evolution ll clear
Nothing compares this hopper is really unique
System X Vengeance 2.0 Pro Blue/Clear dust
Crossfire 68ci/3000psi N2
7 uv LED lights
Wish it was agitated also
I got this hopper at my local paintball dealer. It was 40 bucks and black in color. I had some money to burn so i got it. I shot it in my friends backyard. It was ausome. U can follow the whole flightpath of the ball!!!!!!!!!! I recomend this hopper to anyone who like nightgames or just wants to get something that is cool. Kryptonite paintballs work best!!!
Anyone who wants to see something very spectacular get this hopper!!

Tippmann A-5, e-grip, flatine barrel. This hopper will not work with an A-5. For testing I used a Tippmann Custom-98.
Excellent job at making the glow in the dark balls glow.
Balls hang up occasionally.
I got the hopper directly from Ricochet to test for field use. It worked perfectly. No complaints at all. It is designed for glow in the dark balls. I used it for hours and it did exactly as it was designed to do. It does not have an agitator but it does not advertise one. It will definetly improve any night game. The balls leave the gun real bright and can be followed the entire flight path. A gun battle with these hoppers is really a sight to see. Any hit is quite visible. Our night games will never be the same. No more blind firing.
I highly recommend this hopper for anyone who is into night games. It is really worth the investment.
