Well, some people just have to have the new things that come out =). j/k
It's because with each shot fired, the paddles inside spin so there is always going to bea ball ready to be fire. i don't think I have heard anything bad about the rico.
However, for the VL revolution, there is an eye and when the eye doesn't see a ball then it starts spinning. Some of the newer version of the revolution (post B.E.) have had a pause when the neck is empty and then the paddles starts to move then causing the ball more likely to chop.
