Review: I recently got the Empire Reloader B2 and this hopper loads fast! I put it into my teammate's DM5, DM6, M5 and an M6 and this hopper can feed just that fast... Honestly, i don't know if there's any difference between this hopper and the Empire Reloader. I think the only difference is that it's a little faster, and the rip-drive is stronger to work through broken paint. (i've heard this- im not sure if it's true). Before, my Ion was chopping after about 10 or 15 balls of walking it... so did the DM5. The Empire can keep up with the guns. As soon as i put on this hopper, my gun shot almost or just as fast and accurate as the High-end Markers on our team, like the DM5, DM6, M5, M6 and SP Shockers.


It's FAST!! this will make your gun shoot faster and will reduce chopping and is reliable to work well through a whole day's tournament

It has a new spring that pushes the balls out that works with the rip-drive to make the loader feed even faster and the balls always have a force applied to them to make the balls be even more ready to move as soon as your marker shoots again

It's durrable, on the field that we play on with hard dirt and rocks, this hopper doesn't break paint and is strong and works great

It's just as small and light as the old Empire Reloader but faster

This is the fastest hopper i've used... but the older model of the Empire Reloader is also a great hopper


Price- Market price for an Empire Reloader B2 is about $180 or $190. It's deffinately worth the extra $30 or $40 for the upgrade from the Empire Reloader to a B2. Even though this hopper is expensive it's worth the money just to make your marker more reliable.

When the opponent's hoppers are breaking down and chopping paint, the Empire Reloader and the B2's battery life will last you the whole day and will work like new feeding hellafast the whole time

Because it's such a new product on the market- it's hard to find in stock, you can find them online for about $165 and the old Empire Reloader for about $145.

Helpful websites are: (actionvillage)
www. -the best customer service and prices i've found

all these sites have the hopper for about $165... It's still hard to find a hopper in stock but these sites are the fastest and best paintball discount sites i've found

Overall, this hopper is awesome and works, great! I'd deffinately reccomend this hopper to all competitive tournament players who want to win
Conclusion: I give this product a 10 and would definately reccomend this product. It helped my gun work better and helps it shoot a lot faster! This will make your gun load faster and shoot faster and chop less and work the whole day in a tournament.
