Review: When I was deciding on a new hopper for my gun, like usual it was between the rotor and the prophecy. My deciding factor was buying a brand new prophecy on ebay for a hundred bucks. I was happy with what I read in the reviews, and I watched videos and was very impressed.
When i recieved it I was very surprised how light it was, that was definitaly the first thing I noticed. It had an awesome design as well. The first thing I had to try was to see how easy it was to take apart and put together. I had no problems at all and I know some people are saying it was a little tougher to put back together but I had no problems, everything fit into place perfectly when I put it back together. Taking it apart without screws has got to be one of the best things Empire could have done with these things. And there is no battery door because they sit on the inside of the shell which means one less thing that can crack on you. I've had a v35 and a reloader b battery door crack on me within the first month of owning em and I know how to take care of my gear. While taking it apart I also noticed how flexible the plastic was which was awesome.
Well next I had to try this thing out, i know some people were saying that the feednecks were breaking on them, (probably because they forgot to sand them down), but mine fit perfect on my ego with no problems. I loaded up the hopper and was surprised how much it fit in it. Comes with a 240 round nose stock. I know it sucks you have to buy the 280 and 200 round noses but at least they are available. I turned my gun to semi, turned on the prophecy and let it rip. Kept up no problem on the stock settings. Then I switched my gun to ramping, again kept up with no problems whatsoever.
Then I noticed how durable this thing was, we were having a team practice. I made a run for the 50 off the break. When I slid the hopper hit bunker at almost full speed, all it did was flex a little bit and nothing happened. I hit it HARD on that bunker and I'm pretty sure my v35 would of cracked in half. That got me hooked on this thing. Its fast , light, durable. Mine has yet to let me down, I've put about 6 cases through it and I'm still running off the first set of batteries. And not one broken ball...
I will say one thing that sucks though is cleaning it after it gets hit cause sometimes paint will get into places you don't want it to go. And there are a lot of crevices for paint to get into, but all it takes is a little time and good as new. Not a big deal.
Like I said I haven't had any problems with this thing and I'm very happy with it.
I give it a 10 out of 10...
Conclusion: I can't say if these are for you or not, but I will say that I'm very impressed with mine. As much as they hold they have a low profile, they are durable and very fast. I recommend these to anyone looking for a new hopper.
10 out of 10
