Products Used:
viewloader 200
Marker Setup: Smart Parts Ion (Black) with red roller trigger
Empire Reloader 2 2005
48ci/3000psi N2
Strengths: Soundactivated
Magnets instead of Snap Action on Lid
Looks Awesome
Very Inexpensive
Size and Shape
Weaknesses: A little weight issue (minor)
Review: Positives-

Soundactivated= This is a great feature because whenever the hopper hears the gun fire it activates. In turn doesn't chop any ball and reloads at the right time

Magnets= This in my opinion is AMAZING. They are just the right strength that the lid never pops off but when reloading in a hurry comes on and off very easily.

Looks= This is a great looking hopper and and looks even better in person. My suggestion would to be to get the smoke color. Very Cool.

Inexpensive= I bought this hopper off for $45 and is worth every penny. Espescially since it is worth as much as a $90-$100 hopper.

Size and Shape= It is a very good size and holds 210+ balls. The shape is great too, if your playing speedball and your hopper gets hit it is less likely to break on an empire than a Halo or Richotec


Weight= This is minor and i think that anyone who has a problem with this weight probably shouldn't play paintball.


This Hopper also runs on 2 9 volt batteries which are easily removed and put into the hopper. It says on sites that it only loads 12bps but i've found that it loads up to 14 so if you dont shoot any faster than that this is the hopper to get.
Conclusion: If you are low on cash or just want a good buy get this hopper. Nothing has been an issue so far and never jams. If you want to play and not worry about your hopper get this!

Thanks I need a 14bps hopper and was planning on getting this, I just upgraded my spyder rodeo with a Kingman Spyder ESP Classic E-Frame C.A.M.D. Trigger Frame and needed a new hopper and this seems just right. Just one question, I have a J&J two piece ceramic barrel and its pretty quiet, will the sound activated board be sensitive enough for my gun?
