which hopper?

hey guys, im new to the sport and looking for a electric hopper for under $100. The two hoppers im thinking about are the evlution 3 or the ricochet 2k. Do ethier of these stop forcing balls when not fireing, or are they constant? thanks

EyeForce. Better than either. EyeForce is true forcefeed consistently around 18-20 bps. Has eyes so it's not on all the time. It's not crazy backheavy like the Evlution 3. It also, once it breaks in, has a much better lid than the Evlution 3. The Ricochet 2K is a pure agitating hopper and will not get above 8 bps consistently, and even that is moderately unlikely. The Evlution will get 13-16 on gun, however that's about all youll get out of it because of blowback slowing it down.

EyeForce can be found for $50, holds 200, gets good battery life, is easy to take apart to clean, and feeds consistently around 18-20 bps. It's the best value hopper made IMO, easily blowing the doors off even older high end hoppers like EmpireB and HaloB, which while they can feed faster in theory, are heavier, hold less, get worse battery life, are more difficult to clean, and often STILL more expensive.

Agreed on the eyeforce. Just got it recently and it beats the **** out of my ricochet ak. Works wonders on the cocker.
