^ The ones you listed are much slower (13bps) than you can shoot the Ion (17bps). With the Ion's break-beam eye, you should not have a chopping problem, but you are giving up some speed that you really don't need to give up. A used Egg with z-board should only run about $50.

your not gonna be able to get a used halo for $50 unless its really abused.
Out of those two id suggest the Reloader II since ricochets are poorly made and have a bad desgn(hard to fill). If any hopper under $50 is an option then get a revvy, despite the claims, it doesnt have a big enough problem with dark paint to warrent the extra money.

Huey69 got a used once (or twice) Reloader B for $55 shipped. vpraidersfan1 found a Halo B for $55 as well. Take your time and search, you could find a Halo B for around $50.

I would suggest going to PbN's B/S/T and looking at the Leaving Paintball sales. Those things are usually priced to sell and sometimes lowballs will be accepted, depending on how much of a hurry they are in to get rid of their gear.

It's quite obvious neither of you have held or used an Apache, so put some clothespins on your lips and let daddy tell you how it really is.

I own an Apache, and it will feed plenty fast for you. With the upgraded motor that Ricochet is putting in them, they will feed 18-19 BPS.

PaintBallBob's comments are totally unfounded- Ricochets have a GREAT design and are made with a great standard of quality. They aren't poorly made, they will last you a long time and if you have any problems Ricochet will send you a new shell free of charge. I myself called up Ricochet two weeks ago for a new shell just because I felt like it. And it didn't cost me a cent. The design is NOT bad at all- holds just as many balls as any other hopper out there, CAN deflect balls if hit from head-on and their measurements are actually SMALLER than comparable hoppers on the market.

So don't talk.

Tito, same goes for you. As I already said, they are SMALLER than other hoppers in their same feed category (if anything, they sit a bit higher because of the battery layout, but only about a 1/2 inch) and they weigh LESS than any other hopper on the market that uses two 9volt batteries.



Ricochet's sale of their Apaches at $50 a pop is a great deal for anyone that wants one. Great hopper, very consistent, AMAZING customer service, great price....you would be a fool not to capitalize on that.



And just to prove how great their customer service is, I called them up two days after I ordered the new shell and asked for another motor. Remember, I had ordered the $15 upgrade since I had a pre-upgrade apache. They sent me another motor FREE. And this was after they sent me the shell. So they basically sent me a new hopper for free. NO OTHER COMPANY OUT THERE will do that. NO ONE.

how can you possiblt compare those two..the only thing about an x-boarded revy is that it feeds more consistantly, not any faster. I woudl not suggest getting a revy cuz you'l only be getting 13 bps.
