A new hopper in the Ricochet line. This gravity feed hopper features heavy duty polycarbon construction, no spill top loading lid, adjustable O-Ring neck, patented deflection engineering and a 180 ball capacity.
The Ricochet 2K Ricochet G2K is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
(Soon to come: Rocket Cock 2, Hyper-Starr Bolt, Velocity Adjuster)
-Very cool looking
-Lid doesnt flap open all the time
-Paintballs get jammed sometimes above the feed neck
-only 180 balls
Me and a friend both bought these for our Customs.... The hopper looks awsome and makes your gun look sweet! it come with some extra oring type things... i dont know yet what they are for exacly but i thinks its for the feed neck... I shot it a couple of times and the balls would jam sometimes if you dint shake or move a lil when shooting...
the standard "kidney" design VL200 types hopper jam less and holds more balls.
Get and electro hopper!
Smart Parts 12" progressive barrel
looks very good
deflect balls !
balls like to jam..and jam hard!
I bought that cause It would gave my market a lower profile and let me hold my gun over the bunkers more at ease (in wood ball). That works very well. but that hopper sucks at feeding the marker!
I was crawling for a good 7 minute in the wood side to bunker my oppenent, that means I had the gun at 90 degrees. When I pulled up to shoot, there was no ball at all in the feedneck! I shook the gun pretty hard and NO BALL DROPPED! and I got shot.. what a shame, I hate this loader, my old vl200 style was at least 3 times less prone to jams, I don't even remember it jamming that hard!
if you keep and eye on the feedneck to see if theres balls to shoot, and are not a trigger happy type guys, I'd get this. But if you're an intermediate player like me that shoot alot of balls and dont want an electro hopper. DONT GET THIS!

well to start off any ricochet hopper is a great hopper because the design make paintballs bounce off your hopper its probably the best gravity feed hopper you can find and its only 12.00 it comes in a verity of colors.this is the best gravity feed i've ever used
I would rcommend this product to who ever is just beginung paintball because this will lessen hopper hits.

This was my first time paintballing, but I could tell tihs was a great loader. It looks so much better than the standard VL-200, and I had no problems with the top staying closed like my friend with a VL-200. This also feeds fast enough for me to shoot at 10BPS without chopping.
If you want somthing nicer than a Vl-200, but don't have enough for a nice electronic hopper get this!

Balls sometimes get jammed because of the way the hopper is designed.
As far as gravity hoppers go, this loader is top of the line. The deflection engineering is a great feature and it gives the hopper a nice look. It has 180 ball capacity which is pretty good, and the top loading lid prevents spills. The thing i like about it though is the replaceable o-ring neck. It keeps the hopper in place while allowing it to easily come undone.
A great buy for anyone who wants a good, well made gravity fed loader. And yes, the deflection engineering actually does work. The balls just bounce right off if hit at the right angle. I've been hit in the mask multiple times because of the ricochet design. It made me pretty mad but at least I know it works.
The Ricochet G2K Loader is, in my opinion, one if not the best gravity hoppers out there. It's cheap. It looks good. It works!! What more could anyone ask for.

vl200, 32 degrees hopper, pmi hopper, force fed loaders but that is not in the same category.
gunless until may then it;s a DM4 baby!!!!! then i switch to a DMX @ WC04
deflects, better lid design than a vl200, cheap alternative to a low end electronic loader
doesnt double as a cheeseburger when you are hungry.
this is a great hopper. the vl200 (sam as all the other gravity hoppers) jams more often, holds less paint and is flimsier, and doesnt have the same deflecting abilities as the g2k. i would recommend this to anyone who would like a cheap, deflecting, low profile, sturdy hopper. they are about the same price as another much lower quality hopper.
buy it if you are tired of hopper hits and dont feel like forking it out for a revvy.

Cheap, same richochet design, feeds alright, o-rings for the neck
Kind of wobbly, falls off gun sometimes if its not tight,and its not electric
Ok I bought this hopper at Hobbytown for 10 bucks and its great.The balls hit and bounce off just like theyre supposed to, although there is sometimes a little smear. (not very noticable) It's better than the stock hopper by far. I also got a smoke one so it is alot easier to see how much paint left. One of the bad things is it wobbles. I sat my gun down to climb over an old rusty fence when i was being chased by the enemy and my hopper fell off! Luckily the top didn't come off and thats real good, so only like 2 got out. I picked it up and won the round. I had to sit out and tighten it up, but after that it performed beautifully.
If you want an improvement in looks and performance from the stock, get this hopper! I definately suggest an electro though. Pretty much any electro is a great upgrade.

-Holds less than a regular hopper- holds 180
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.
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.

color selection, price of o-rings, avalibility at pro-shops, having to order online
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
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
