reloader....not enough

So guys, need a little help.
I had an Empire Reloader (original 13bps style, not II or B), sold it because it no longer keeps up with my tippmann response trigger which is like 15-17 bps i believe. No sense in arguing, but my reloader wouldnt keep up. So i need a good reccomendation for a new one. Looked at the EGG II, and the RICCOCHET. I need something that isnt overkill (like the Halo B), and over expensive (like the Reloader B). I need something sturdy as i mainly play woodsball, and i do the 5 Ds of dogdeball a lot (dodge, dip, duck, dive, and dodge haha). Anyway. looking to keep it under $100 and still an all around solid hopper that can feed like 17bps.

thanks guys

Product Description

The Ricochet Apache is the lightest of all the super fast loaders weighing in at only 16oz with batteries.

EZ load battery magazine
99 minute and 59 second game timer

so from what i have seen looks like between the:

Evo II y-board
and
Ricochet Apache LCD

Anyone with some input as to what i should do? how fast they can feed (different sites say different things) , how breakable are they?(heard EGG II is very fragile... ), reviews of those who own these? any feedback would be appreciated

thanks

ive heard that eggs get nowhere near the feeding rate of what the box says, like 15-16 bps with y-board when it states over 20. they also break off at the feedneck very easily and you have to get a whole new shell. i dont know, i dont own one, but my reloader b > *

Even thought i hate them... the Rico is the lesser of two evils. Besides, you say you play woodsball, so you wont get funny looks for having a funky hopper.

thanks LORD, so by lesser of 2 evils i guess you really dont reccomend either. But from pbreview.com (not sure if i can post that site, sorry) and other paintball people, sounds the the EGG II isnt that solid of a marker so i am probably gonna go with the ricochet, although some negative things have been said about it too. But i dont think i can get that great of a hopper without going over the $100 mark, and i can get a ricochet LCD for $54 which is a sweet deal. It has a game timer and shot counter which i acutally think would be cool. Thanks to you guys who posted.
