I've been looking to replace my stock A-5 hopper, it's a pretty simple process with the options out there really, i'm not a paint slinger that needs the 400 rounds, and i like the flexibility that the standard 200 gives, so the 50 or so round ones are out. Which left me to the Ricochet and the X-7 hopper, so I wanted to ask which would you recommend and why? also I sometimes use a red dot, does the Ricochet allow me a clear view or is more like the stock A-5 hopper?

I would imagine the X7 hopper will let you use the sight most effectively. If you want to use the sight, I'd get the X7 hopper. If you can live without the sight I would suggest a Ricochet hopper. I have a Ricochet AK and the design is phenomenal. It actually does cause a few bounces, and I think they look really sleek.

I started off with a ricochet and then moved onto an x7 hopper. Your best bet for an unobstructed view would be the x7 hopper. Its offset so it will not be in your way when using the red dot. They both hold about the same number of paintballs.

I have the X-7 Hopper with a red dot. I don't have a sight raiser or rail, but I can see about 2/3 of the red dot. Also, I love how the X-7 hopper is low profile. I just wish it was custom painted Specops Digi to match my A-5A2. Though, I have nothing to say about the Ricochet.

Well hurry up and make your mind up. Ricochette is out of business and AV bought up the last of their inventory.
