I like the Apache.....not as fast as a Eggy...but better than a Halo TSA or a Revvy imho...cool looking on a Mil Sim too!!!!
I have been using a Ricochet AK on a Mil Sim Tippmann 98 w/e bolt and been very happy with it. Several people at the field we play at have Apache loaders and they like them.
They do have a funny neck size though. It can be hard to find the right o-rings to make them fit some feednecks.....

Well I got a really good price on one for $46 new in the box. I know people who use them and they do like them, I would like a TSA too but they are more money and I am not that much of a paint sprayer to really need one. I don't like the eggs ... I play alot of woods ball and I have been a few eggs break a year.

I had a Richochet AK and It didn't keep up very well. I went out and invested in a Halo B with a victory board and now I am very Happy

PS Does anyone want to buy a Ricochet AK, Only used a few times?

Apache can feed at speeds of 17 to 19 balls per second from what I have read, the AK is only about 12 BPS. What is your Halo B like 22-24 bps?

With the Victory board It has 6 different settings. I have it set on 28bps now and it is setting number 4. I think it gets up to around 35-40bps or something that insane.
It is enough for me.

wow ya anything over 30 is not needed for 99% of markers ... fast hopper tho. I hope when I try the hopper out in a few weeks that it can keep up I think it should tho.
