Products Used:
Empire Reloader B
Marker Setup: ATS System AT-4 w/ carbine Stock OR Tippmann A-5 A81 Sniper package , 4500psi w/ remote. Empire reloader. Bob Long Ripper (05)
Strengths: None that I have come across. Faster on (No delay)
Weaknesses: Cannot keep up with B Long Ripper
Review: After all the hype with the new improved version of this already great hopper i broke down and bought one. Out of the box it appears to be the same as the older brother. However, the new board and mic installed in the hopper is a good (Not great ) feature. It keeps up well on my ATS System AT4, and E-Mag but leaves alot to be desired on the Bob Long when attempting to lay out mass amounts of paint.
Conclusion: Find someone who already owns one, borrow it and see if u really need to upgrade. My feeling are that the Empire Reloader B2 is NOT any better than the regular Reloader B.
5 out of 10

Does your Empire keep up with your Ripper? cuz the B2 loads just as fast or even faster than the Empire Reloader.

He probobly doesnt even have the b2. Made the whole thing up. This hopper will feed way faster than any timmy will ever shoot.

how would it not keep up with ur timmy? the regular reloader b loads 22+. the b2 does just as good!

STORYTELLER Tuesday, April 18th, 2006 | 3:53 am PST
maybe the setting on your laoder were wrong, or the loader has a fault.

if an empire b can keep up to an xsv ego then i belive the b2 can do even better on a blong ripper.

i mean my VL vlocity can only do 22 bps on my nexus ego and with an empire b i managed 24. the VL eats up my batterys once a week, it must be the loader or i will go with the same assumption with the guy on the prev post about making the whole thing up. he probably dont have a b2 and YES no timmy can out beat an empire speacialy a b2 with a fast feed rate.

dont be crazy man.

I had the same problem with my Angel speed.

My 05 Proto is ripping 24 bps with the B2 with long battery life

probably had it on some kind of ramping or something stupid.

Same speed as Empire B and they can keep up with B Long Rippers.

get the stock empire, unless you are into speedball that is shooting faster than 22+ per second

I would go for the new one. It's $20 more at, also it's slightly more reliable then the original B.

You probably just forgot to change the motor speed, it is set at its slowest out of the box.

ur full of crap

Dyegunsrock Thursday, August 3rd, 2006 | 12:56 pm PST
Your so full of crap, My friend/teammate uses a Bob Long Ripper wit The Empire Re:loader B2 and it keeps up no problem, he is one of the fastes shooters I've see(although at our last tournament a guy on one of the other teams shot faster). Never the less your full of crap, they can keep up no frigin problem, im using one om my PM6 and it keeps up with that no problem.

STORYTELLER Sunday, August 20th, 2006 | 11:34 am PST
my ego managed 25bps today, thats the fastest its ever shot, and it was with a standard B, umagin wat the b2 is capable of... not even my vlocity could put out that many bps...

this guy dont know nething bout pintballing

icdbko32 Thursday, October 5th, 2006 | 6:56 pm PST
i dunno about a timmy not being ever to out shoot a b2, i shot 21 with my rl with stock board with a stock halo so im sure that will improve with reloaders as they don't have a wait time for the eyes like the halo.

bunkrlad Sunday, November 26th, 2006 | 5:54 pm PST
the b2's are claimed to shoot 27+ bps and with its lil brother shootin 24 ill believe it any day thats such bull dude

Timmykilla Sunday, December 3rd, 2006 | 5:16 pm PST
there is no way in hell that you can shoot as fast as a reloader b or b2

Fastfingers28 Friday, December 8th, 2006 | 7:07 pm PST
If the empire B2 doesn't keep up w/ a timmy, what other hopper are you gonna use? (Besides a Vlocity, or a Pulse)
