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

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 wave:

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 > * :devil:

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.
