~FEED RATE/CONSISTENT/NO JAMS~
The empire reloader is a very fast feeding hopper using force feed ways.This hopper has a feed rate of 22+.Some people claim 30 but i haven't tryed it with long strings of paint yet.Tis hopper is a lot more consistent then the halo b.It feeds at a continuous rate or whatever it it.This hopper is has no jams.When i had my halo b it would jam every once in a while.
~4 OR 6 AA BATTERIES~
What i love about this hopper is u can switch it with 4 or 6 AA batteries.It comes with another batteries source thing for 4 batteries.When using 4 batteries it makes the hopper lighter but the feed rate is slower.
I love that this hopper comes stock with a rip drive.It allows u to manually feed paintballs such as when ur chrono ur gun or when we have a jam in ur hopper.
This hopper only comes in 3 colors as i know of right now;clear,smoke,and blue.There might be more but i haven't found any more yet.Also,about the first 500 made came with sparkles in the shells which made it look pimp and more shiny.
EDIT:I have found that they now also come in orange and black.
Another feature i love is that it is see through.The whole hopper is,except for the motor.
It is easy to see how much paint u have left everywhere,including the feed tube and raceway.
I love that it is sound activated.I can use any paint and not worry about dark shelled paint.It will spin on every shot it hears.Plus u can tell it spins by watching the rip drive and/or the paint inside.Also the blinking green light goes off when ur shooting so u know it is spinning.
The feedneck on this hopper is HUGE.It took me awhile to sand it down to size to fit in my 'cocker's feedneck.And it still isn't all the way down yet.
This hopper is heavy compared to other hoppers out there but it is roughly the same weight as a eggy2 both filled.If u use 4 AA batteries and have it filled,it will weigh less.
The price for this hopper is around $150.I think that is a little high but i think it is worth it.It might be hard for people on strict budgets to get one cause it is so much.
Overall,i think this is the best hopper out there today,with a high feedrate.It will keep up with u.If ur looking for a high feedrate hopper for high ROF high-end guns then this is the hopper for u.

anyways,,,,great review...i bought one about a month and a half ago and i love it...theres one thing i think is pretty stupid..it's when people say the hopper is heavy..its not like it will hinder (decrease) their performance.......other than that it is a perfet hopper for any gun....

I think that is a reloader that my friend took the shell and boiled it in a pot and pumped in green food coloring and it made it a pretty baby-shyt green. Dont try it unless you hear it from at least 3 sources because i dont want to be souly responsible for any damage.
pro/carb: where are you getting your info and view from??? first off, how is it crappier if it feeds 3 bps faster, and is sound activated instead of eye actuvated, which means it starts feeding as soon as you fire, rather then the halo which waits till the feedneck is empty before its starts feeding. meh personal preference i guess tho
