Period of

Less than a month1 of 1 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Marker Setup: SmartParts Impulse W/
SmartParts nerve feed neck
Empire eletric hopper w/ rip
Pure Energy 3000 psi compressed air tank
Dye 05 Rino tank cover.
Strengths: The fastest on the market
Color varietey
Sound activation
3 speed settings
Weaknesses: Price
The battery cover is kinda flimsy
THE GOODS: I very first started playing with it, when I got my new Impulse. The hopper did not skip a single ball out of the 1200 balls I shot. The looks are the best it gets for a hopper, also the design gives this hopper a very low profile. The hopper comes with a nice box, two battery size pack one with 4 the other with 6, and a manual on how to operate.

THE BADS: The battery outside cover has a little side to side play and the screw is way to long, I recommend replacing it.

HALO B V.S. EMPIRE: Some of you are probably wondering what's the difference between the Halo B and the Empire hopper? The only difference between the two is the Empire has a sound activation and has the "EMPIRE" symbol on it . The two hoppers are made by the same company, but I recommend getting the Empire over the halo because the Halo will not always turn on when balls are in it, for this reason spend the xtra $6.
Conclusion: Nothing is perfect, but this hopper is the best paintball hopper your green paper can buy.

you said to spend the extra $6 and get an empire over a halo. You can buy halo b's for $105 or $115 with rip drive, but the empire is $150 pretty much everywhere. That's a bit more than a $6 difference.

the screw for the battery cover is actually the right just have to screw it in all the way...this eliminates the side to side play...
