Review: I already had a halo and a revy so I really didn't need this, but I got it over the Internet for 35 bucks used and was really impressed.
It's a sister hopper to the VL revy. The only difference is the empire has a shorter six point paddle (1 paintball long) and is sound activated. I found the paddle and the sound activation to make it faster and more consistent than the revy. The six point paddle is hooked at the end and really feed the paintballs into the feed neck. It grabs the paintballs and drops them into the feed neck. The eye had a delay before it turned and wouldn't feed constantly where the sound activation feeds instantly and feeds the entire time you fire.
My friend used this on his R6 when we played together and it keeps up fine with the e grip, but wouldn't feed fast enough for my cocker, but I didn't expect it to. I never had a problem with it and it was very easy to clean, and was always reliable when playing.
I ended up selling it to a guy I knew that has an icon E and he liked it as well.
Conclusion: If you don't have a need to shoot 13-14+ bps then this will cover all the bases perfectly for you at a lower price than a halo or egg.
