Review: First of all, I had my halo b, it kept jamming everytime i use it for play, so i had my eyes on the magna drive. It seems like it has some cool features to it, the looks did not effect me at all and empire is very trust worthy so i decided to buy this loader off my field.

What i noticed is that it came in a nice box, with an extra plate, which gives you an option to have 15-25 more balls to your loader, also with extra magnets for your lid.

Then i observed the loader itself, The shell has the same material as the halo, so it will scratch up very easily, came with a halo rip drive which is very useful, it has a magnetic lid with no spring attached (thank god), a thick low rise feedneck, a slide door for the battery, so you don't need to use screws (thank you again); the feed neck was in the front which worried me so i placed it on my proto slg, and my first impressions was "WOW", it looked tight on my slg. and it is a lot lower than my vl jr and halo.

Off to the drop test, i was programming the modes, and it was very confusing, but it takes time to get use to changing the modes. (Took me 2 hours to understand)
I put the mode on 6 which is the highest feedrate (bps), and i was able to get 35 bps,
The box said 50 bps, but I'm sure it takes some time of modding to get that high of rate.
But this loader was still fast, fastest loader i ever used. I did not have time using this in the field. I also realized it was gentle on paint since it took out the halo rolling pin in the loader, and placed a more reliable piece to be more gentle on paint and prevents the loader from jamming more often.

If you think the empire magna drive is ugly looking, just look at the other high end loaders such as the Pinokio and vl jr. In my opinion i think those loaders look a lot uglier

I love this loader.

Conclusion: I only tested the loader, and amazed by its features. Overall this is a great loader, its fast, gentle on paint and has lots of features to it. I give this 10/10, a perfect loader.
