I got my Apache LCD yesterday and I was so surprised at the quality. I played with it today and I shot lines of paint that I thought were never possible with my gun. The timer is really cool. It has minute and seconds up to 99 min. and 59 sec. My friend has the LED and this was the reason I got this hopper. I have yet to see the "ricochet" design ricochet a paintball yet. One of the things that I think really helps is the E-Z view. The is a little window so you can see how much paint you have left, it really helps if you have a black hopper. Anyone else own it and have opinions about it?

I've been thinking about getting this hopper, and the wat u said makes me want to get it even more. Where did u get it, and how much did u pay for it?

Mine was loud when it turned. When I told everyone they were like oh your exaggerating. And then when they heard it they were like damn that it so loud. But I have seen eggs and halos break. So far the ebst electronic hopper I have seen were the revys.

i bought a basic ricochet w/out the autofeed. it was smoke colored (clear but greyish) so i masked off the back and the lid and spray painted it black. now i have a lil window on my ammo only i can see. (especially useful b/c i use bright yellow evil. lol) and the design will work. give it time. ive caught enough paint on the regular U shaped hopper to try sumpin new. not only that but its lower on your gun so u gots ta love that. right? right!

i haven't had any chops or dry fires either my spyder imagine or angel speed. at the chrono i was shooting 19 bps (i know, that's weak for a speed, but i'm slow) and it was keeping up fine. not too sure about the "riccochet" aspect of it. didn't see anything hit it, but there has been only one break on the hopper itself (feed neck is a diff story) so far. i personally don't think it's that loud, but i play speedball, not woods ball. if you need to be sneaky in woodsball chances are you aren't going to be firing fast enough to need a power loader anyway cause that'll just draw more attention to where you are...speedball is a diff story though.

basically this will let you lay ropes if you want to. if you aren't cheating and using ramping or full auto i doubt you'll be able to outrun this loader....at least i can't (so far)

These are the best loaders on the market besides the Empire Reloader-B. Halo's and Egg's have problems, but the Richochet has none. It's nicknamed the "weedwhacker" at my local field because of the agitator and noise, but they are fast and reliable. I've never had problems, neither have my buds. They are also coming out with a new motor/design that will feed faster than the current model.

They retail for about 100 I think, but I pick em up wholesale for 75 (the pleasures of sponsorship...and no I'm not just writing nice things about it because I'm sponsored, these loaders kick!)

I bought a ricochet apache a few weeks ago and have used it twice. once in speedball and once in woodsball. Both times I had consistent performance. No breaks due to slow loading. I had my gun on full auto and once I tried to see if I could get a ball to break by shooting as fast as I could on semi about 13bps. Still no breaks. I payed $65 on anythingxtreme.com This is the best loader you can find for under $100. I haven't experienced any ricochets off my loader yet but I haven't been hit there much.

does the apache have eyes like the revy, or does it just keep agitating when tured on?

It has a plastic bender in the feedneck, when balls move, it moves, which causes agitation. It works just like eyes, just a different way of activating (better one too, because it feels movement instead of seeing it)
