Thick plastic,fast,self adjusting,easy on batts. 6 paddles
none really,alittle loud if you want something to complain about.
Its a good hopper, faster then a revy, auto shut off is nice if you forget to turn it off after the day is done, kept up with my friends viking going about 14-15 bps. sun light doesnt screw up the sensors. it has a long battery life. 3 colors:clear,smoke,black.
its costs about the same as a 12v revy. its better then a revy but its not THE best(obviously theres the halo and egg2) but its capable of keeping up with some of the fast markers if you dont wanna dish out $100+ on a halo get the reloader.
there are better out there but not many. you get the most for your money with this. if the shell breaks they you can just order a new shell from VL(same shells basically) and put the sensor and switch in the vl shell
Black Dragun Basic with:
Check it trigger
easy to use
looks are ok
doesnt hold enough paint
I bought this hopper because it was on closeout sale for 30$. I was using a regular hopper on my Black Dragun. I was choppin paint everywhere, This loader made a huge differance. haven't had any problems with it breaking yet. It does feel really fragile though. i had to put duck tape on the feed neck to get it to fit my BD. that was the only problem with it so far. i hope it doesn't break on me.
this hopper is the best out there. if u need an electronic hopper, get this one. u wont regret it.
Halo B...great till the motor brushes tweaked out, VL 12 volt revy...quieter but not as fast, AGD's Warp feed...faster but not really front player friendly.
Toxic Impulse w/out vision,ND low rise universal, Shockteck mini drop w/asa
2K2 Cocker w/tons of stuff done to it
Very fast for a gravity fed hopper, cheaper than a revy.
The body seems cheap, I have a early production run model.
Very good alternitive to a Revy, it's faster and cheaper. Feeds my Toxic Impulse very well even with the low rise feed neck on it. Granted I don't have the fastest trigger finger in the world but it works well for me. Over the chrono I shoot about 9 bps, and maxed it out at 14 with no chopping. The plastic on mine seems cheap and a little rough around the edges. The hole for the low battery light is covered by excess plastic from the molding process. The newer ones my friends have seem better quality than mine,but thats something I can live with.
If you are in the market for a electronic loader and you don't want to spend alot of money buy a reloader. Yes, there are faster loaders but for the money these babys rock. I got mine for 45.00 dollars at NPS. So unless your shooting a Matrix or other super fast electro you can't go wrong with a reloader!
Only thing that compares is the egg and the new richoche(cant spell it), and the halo (better)
System X Drop Forward
ACI 68/4500 (dye rhino cover)
2002 Smart Parts All American Barrel With A Freak Front
Two Words: Sound Activated
Not Any Design Just Plain
Ok for starters this is one of the best hoppers you can get:
*Faster than a richoche
*It is sound activated
*DO NOT GET THE REVVY heres the difference, the viewloaders wait for a misfeed to happen to rotate the thingy, with the reloader it feedes a ball everytime you shoot, this makes misfeeds impossible to happen, so its your choice wait for the problem or not have the problem, if your smart you will get the reloader.
*The price is awsome too, for only 45! same as revvy but much better!!
*Made of tough plastic so it wont break like the revvys
Get this hopper is the best hopper besides the Halo B, if u thinkin about getting a revvy dont, its like wait for problem or not have one...get this

Smart Parts Ion- empire revo-category 5 4500 psi tank-freak junior 14 inch. barrel-dye tank cover
Magnetic lid - Fits alot of balls in hopper...more than the evo 11 - price
Alittle slow ( 12 BPS ) but good for an average gun- alittle too long and big
This is a good quality hopper if your looking for a cheap good working hopper. I use it on my ion right now and it works fine... i thought i would need a halo b or evo but no way its fast enough...when i first got this hopper i tried it at this place where me and my friends go paintballing and i was shocked on how fast i was shootin...i was lighting up my brother so bad...
Overall this is a great hopper for cheap amount of money and good if you don't want to spend $100 on a halo.
Very fast(15 bps)
200+ ball capacity
Had to sand down the feed neck
Looks a little big
This hoper is sound activated which is nice. It also has 200 ball capacity and is super fast. I have never outshot it and is very easy to install the bateries and turn on and off. It also has a low battery light. The magnetic lid is very nice too. It closes nice and fast without havint to put any pressure on it to close and it has never opened on me while diving into bunkers. plus you get all of this, all for only 50$!! So it is a great deal for your money.
I got this hopper and it so awesome. I like the noise it makes. the sound activation is to the point where its not sensitive enough if someone if yelling next to but but it will definetley work when you shoot it. this thing is really fast. i put it on my friends imagine and put it on full auto. not one break and the autos around 13 bps so it keeps up fine with that. it can shoot 15 bps tops because i did a drop test with 180 paintballs and put my friends imagine at 12 bps which came out to 15 bps. the hoppers durable, too. dropped it 5ft on to pavement and came away with a small scratch. easy the best hopper for $50. if you have an angel or dm4 or something like that, go buy a halo b or reloader b what the hell. if you got a low end electro or mechanical, this hopper will never fail you, it never failed me.
Get one-youll thank me

2004 System X Type X, Empire Reloader, 32* Universal Drop Forward, 47/3000 N2
No gaps while feeding
Battery door easy to open
Requires 2 9V batteries
Hard to close battery door when batteries are in there
Ok, I'll start off by saying I just got it off of ebay for $23.50 total. I just received it. So I filled it up and surprisingly it held all the balls inside my 200 count container! So I popped in 2 9V batteries, filled it up, turned it on and kept tapping it to keep it running since it is sound activating and agitates... and there were no gaps! I was very happy with my purchase. So I cant wait to see how it does feeding my ESP Trigger... and according to the other reviews it should do very well. Oh ya... u guys who say only 12 to 13 bps... well I just did a test and unloaded 185 balls in 12 seconds which cones out to be 15.42 bps... so u guys that say it only feeds 12 bps u really cant say that without actually testing it
I would definitely recommend this hopper to anyone who has an electronic spyder or low end electronic marker. But I would never put it on an angel, timmy, or any of the high end electronic guns. I am giving this hopper a 10 because it was very good just dry feeding it without actually shooting it but I'll update it after I really let it go!

spyder imagine 04, empire reloader, 9 oz BE co2, Straight Trigger
Soon to have:
Teardrop or Razzor 14"
Maby a ACS
Auto shut off after 30 mins
Somtimes you dont know when it is off and on
This hopper is good for the money i got a Imagine o i needed a E Hopper so i got this. It is so cool becaus it feeds only when you shoot (unlike thoose piece of crap quantums that run forever and ever and ever). I am very pleased with this hopper it dose its job well.
CCM lowrise feedneck
68/4500 crossfire LP tank
sound activated,nice look,strong shell,Empire made,Less expensive than the Revvy w/x
I bought this hopper after hours of deliberation between this and the Revvy w/ X. I made my decision based on 3 things. One it was faster, two it was sound activated, and three it EMPIRE! Now this hopper is no were near as fast as the Halo B or Evo2, and wouldnt even be privelidged enough to sit with a Empire Reloader B, but for a cheap hopper that keeps up with low end and mid level guns, this is it. It feeds 3 BPS faster than Revvy w/ x-board and supposedly has a stronger shell than the new Revvys. It also has the pimp Empire logo on each side!
I conclude that this hopper more than beats the Revvy w/ x-board. If your planning on buying a hopper and you dont need a Halo or Reloader B, get this one. Its unstopable in the mid level market.
