Review: Ok I got the prophecy for my christmas present to myself and have to say im very pleased. Like all other kids buying a hopper right now I was divided between the prophecy and the rotor. After doing hours of research and watching all the videos I decided id stick with my Halo roots and get the prophecy. I went to my proshop mid december, the second I heard they had some in stock to go and make my purchase. In the proshop i took out the two hoppers once again to compare. The cashier behind the counter immediately recommended the rotor, but I had my heart set on the prophecy so thats what I got.

Opening the box: The box comes with the hopper, spare clutch magnets, and a wonderful manuel. The hopper itself is extremely easy to program to your preferences and easy to set up either RF or sound frequencys. The next day I ran about 1000 rounds of walmart paint with the stock settings, with sound on my Threshold on 13 bps ramp. It was about 30*F and it shot amazing.

At my first practice with the hopper, I used stock settings with my threshold in semi and after 1 and 1/2 cases it was looking strong with no breaks or jams or anything.

I then put it through a hard day of xball, shooting 2 cases with my threshold on 13 ramp. I was the only one on the field without a rotor and I was proud, and was keeping up no problem. The hopper posed no problems at all. However some paint did manage to get behind the hopper back plate after being shot. When I went to take it apart I found it kind of difficult to reassemble correctly. It was kind of a pain to get all the right parts in all the right places.

Now the real test:
I recently just practiced with my RF 08 ego on semi. It was about 40* and pouring rain all day. I put in 2 extra magnets in the clutch and ran 2 cases through it perfectly. I was truly amazed how well, even diving in the mood it worked.

This hopper has yet to let me down, and i have shot about 6 cases with it and its still good on the original batterys. The shell is looking strong and I sense no problems
Conclusion: I give it an 8 out of 10, because the prerelease videos make it seem incredibly easy to take apart and put back together. Now you can still take it apart without tools, but it is harder than it looks, and alot harder than the rotor
Rating:
8 out of 10
