Review: what i love about this hopper is that it will never miss a shot to spin. if you open the lid and yell into it, it will turn! its awesome lol. i havent outshot it yet with my impulse and dont plan to. they say if you put only 4 batteries its lighter, which is probably true but 2 AA BATTERIES LIGHTER! cmon peoples your not gonna notice that in a game. i say keep all 6 in all the time. it has 3 different speeds also which is cool but its kinda complicated to change the speeds and i hstill havent fully figured it out. this is also a unneeded feature; whats the worst that could happen if you have you hopper on the fastest speed when you only are shooting a mechanical? whats the worst that could happen if its not going fast enough? a chopped ball, which usually ruins your whole game. my point is, keep all six batteries in, and keep it on the fastest speed all the time.
Conclusion: get it, its the best loader there is
it beats:
halo: because its sound activated, not infrared. plus its faster and has speeds and better colors.
qloader: because its not as fast, but holds 75 more paintballs plus you can refill it with pods in a game.
reloader: because its faster.
evo II: faster, and is sound activated instead of constant rotation

Changing the speeds is pretty easy. Just check out the empire website, and download the manual. Also, I think the victory board for the halo has 6 speeds.

If you turn down the speed, it does not use up batteries as fast. That's why you can turn down the speed, so if you're just using a mechanical as you said, you will waste less batteries by turning down the hopper so its speed matches the gun.

The Evo2 does not use constant rotation (such as the VL Quantum or Ricochet Rhino). It uses two sensors, an infra-red transmitter and a receiver, in a break beam configuration (as compared to the single reflective transmitter/receiver sensor in the HALO). The Evo only turns constantly if there is no paint in the feedneck for it to sense.

o. all of those things i didnt not know. lol but the victory board for the halo is like 20-$30 rite? bringing the price of just ur hopper up to almost $200, more than ill pay.

just got this in, dont know, maybe its old news to you guys but apparently empire is coming out with an upgrade kit for the halo. you can put the empire reloader b board and evrything in your halo for like $80. i think thats a really stupid move by empire, but whatever, its their company.
