Review: Well, this is my second one of these loaders.

I had an Ion a few years ago, got out of playing, sold it, and just got back into it.
Bought an Epiphany, and of course, needed an e-loader. I'm on a budget, so hey, 50 bucks sounds pretty good!

I've checked out the listing on this sucker, and it says it feeds 10-12 a second. I've got to seriously question that.
Last few times I've played, I've been able to set my Epiphany on ramping, (which I have my ROF delay and dwell set to give me 17 bps).
I was in a 1 V 1 against a Dangerous Power F8, (25BPS) and after alot of bobbing and baiting, decided to throw a solid stream. I reloaded, and didn't back off that trigger for 10 seconds. My Epiphany didn't sputter or delay at ALL. (Eyes on) That tells me this loader kept up, at 17 bps for 10 seconds, while being advertised for 10-12 bps.

I wish I had a chrono that gave ball count, because I'd love to have absolute proof other than the fact that the marker didn't sputter or delay on fire at all. If it did, I couldn't tell.


I am not a magnetic lid fan. I know they are easy to open, but thats why I don't like them. I've lost paint already, and seen others lose alot of paint from these stupid mag lids. Hard running, and blamo, that lid could fly open, especially when you've got a full heavy hopper of paint. My other one, I used a small strip of velco to create a "safety" on the backside of the lid, which I had to grab and pull up to release. Still fast, but now SAFE.

I have had no issues with fit in my stock Epiphany feed neck, no sanding at all. No fall outs either.

It seems pretty slim, especially compared to my new Empire Reloader B2, which will be going on my Dangerous Power G3. It sits kind of tall though, but hey, it's an inexpensive hopper.


I've never had it not feed from the sound signature or vibration of my Epiphany (however it "senses" a shot), so no complaints there.
Conclusion: All in all, I like it. I'd buy it again if I needed a cheap hopper, that seems to work very solidly! It's surely not the fastest, lightest, or most impressive, but it works and seems to work well for what I got it for!
