The use of radioactive ion beams is shown to offer the possibility to study collective pairing states at high excitation energy, which are not usually accessible with stable projectiles because of large energy mismatch. In the case of two-neutron stripping reactions induced by 6He, we predict a population of the giant pairing vibration in 208Pb or 116Sn with cross-sections of the order of a millibarn, dominating over the mismatched transition to the ground state.
