How does everyone like there Ricochets?

If any of you have Ricochet 2ks, how do you like them? Are they too loud, or big? And who has them for the cheapest?

I personally like my richochet. I mean yeah it is a little loud, but I don't care, it feeds really well. I love the timer, but don't use the ball counter. If I were to come to buying another hopper I would prob buy another Richochet.

Thumbs up GOOD HOPPER

the ric is a great hopper and any one who has played for a while will remember when revs (the real ones) were 85-80 bucks. as for shots per battery since the ric takes one and the rev takes two, I find that a plus. the ric has a low battery bisplay and once this is indicated you still have approximately 1500 shots left, good luck with a revy if the little red light flips on in the middle of a game (if the light even works with the new the BE revs). plus people spend extra for a game timer which is built into the ric. this hopper will also take a bounce (this is not just hype), my record is 7 hits 3 bounces, one from 15 feet. the ric is louder than a rev but it also spins every time you shoot, to loud is also what was said when the revy first hit. I still play with my two pre BE revs but as for new hoppers, for now, the ric is it. plus the price will come down with time just like the revys and as for customer service have you ever talked with anyone from BE, the people at ric dev are cool as hell and very willing to help

A couple guys at my field use them and they like them, but what do they have on them to make them so much more expensive than a revvy?

Basically the only differences are:

1) LCD Screen
2) Timer
3) Ball Counter
4) A different ball sensing system, it is basically intellifeed
5) And last but not least, it is a new company with a new product.

I think that the built-in timer is wonderful, that made it worth the money to me. Other than that, it feeds as fast and as well as a Pre-Sunboard 12v rev. I have both and they are both great. Its all preference in the end, if you don't already have a timer then the Richochet is prob the better choice. If you already have a timer, then try and get your hands on a Pre-BE or a Pre-Sunboard 12v Rev.

I hope this helps

actually they did'nt spend much money on the plastic therefore i believe it was made cheaply, also i did'nt say there bad hoppers i just think they break easily not the boarda and what not but the hopper its self

they seem pretty durable to me, even if they do break, they have a lifetime warranty i believe, the people at riochet are great if you need it replaced i hear.
