The 2 basic advantages of the R hop vs. traditional hop is increased hop to lift heavier ammo and increased range. But you have to factor in the impact velocity at those ranges.
I disagree. Even at the energy levels that we game a 1.7j their is a significant improvement in consistency and range. I don't think anyone in The local area shoots anything less than a 0.30bb even at 1.7joules

R Hop is definitely worth your time as you will get far more effective range from you gun. G hop etc is still pretty popular in Japan and seeing 1joule guns shoot as far as a typical Canadian 1.7 joule gun with the same ammo is an eye opener
