None.
Marker Setup: BobLong Empire 06, Empire Reloader B2, Pure Energy 68/4500, 16" Ultra Lite.
Strengths: Speed.
Rip Drive.
Colors.
Weaknesses: Load capacity.
Review: This hopper can keep up with my BobLong Empire 06. I know it is good for a solid 25+bps feed rate. I can shoot as fast as the board will allow(full auto no cap) and the hopper keeps up, never double feeds, and works even when there is paint in it.
I had my loader got shot up and about 5-10 must have shattered in the loader, but no problem, the loader worked like nothing happened.
Conclusion: Worth the money, dont buy any other hopper cause they cant compare, you might as well buy this one, cause you will only need to upgrade your cheaper hopper anyway.

Review: PROS
i heard all of the huge hype about this loader comming out and since my old halo broke i decided to try and find out and finnaly got one at my local pro shop. got it home and started shooting some paint through it right away. now my review might say its sooo awesome just because i have never had a reloader b so i am new to the empire hopper family. this hopper has the ability to change the settings for motor speed, microphone sensitivity and spring tension monitoring. this was waaay more advanced than my old halo. you will never have ball breaks because you can set the speed at which it feeds AND have spring tension monitoring on wich stops the motor from feeding if the pressure on the ball stack is too great. it also conserves battery power because you can set the microphone sensitivity lower so it wont waste batteries being at a higher setting. despite all you have heard it can feed as fast as a vlocity and just as fast as a normal reloader b

CONS
if you already have a reloader b the upgrade to a b2 IS NOT worth the extra money. the only thing that is better is the ability to adjust the settings, no matter how low the microphone setting it still always tries to feed when you open or close the lid because it mistakes it for the sound of your marker, when changing settings the power indicator flashes very quickly so it is hard to change the settings at first but you get used to it
Conclusion: All in all, this is a great hopper, no better than the reloader b or vlocity but it has its pros

Review: I recently got the Empire Reloader B2 and this hopper loads fast! I put it into my teammate's DM5, DM6, M5 and an M6 and this hopper can feed just that fast... Honestly, i don't know if there's any difference between this hopper and the Empire Reloader. I think the only difference is that it's a little faster, and the rip-drive is stronger to work through broken paint. (i've heard this- im not sure if it's true). Before, my Ion was chopping after about 10 or 15 balls of walking it... so did the DM5. The Empire can keep up with the guns. As soon as i put on this hopper, my gun shot almost or just as fast and accurate as the High-end Markers on our team, like the DM5, DM6, M5, M6 and SP Shockers.

Strengths:


It's FAST!! this will make your gun shoot faster and will reduce chopping and is reliable to work well through a whole day's tournament

It has a new spring that pushes the balls out that works with the rip-drive to make the loader feed even faster and the balls always have a force applied to them to make the balls be even more ready to move as soon as your marker shoots again

It's durrable, on the field that we play on with hard dirt and rocks, this hopper doesn't break paint and is strong and works great

It's just as small and light as the old Empire Reloader but faster

This is the fastest hopper i've used... but the older model of the Empire Reloader is also a great hopper

Weakness:


Price- Market price for an Empire Reloader B2 is about $180 or $190. It's deffinately worth the extra $30 or $40 for the upgrade from the Empire Reloader to a B2. Even though this hopper is expensive it's worth the money just to make your marker more reliable.

When the opponent's hoppers are breaking down and chopping paint, the Empire Reloader and the B2's battery life will last you the whole day and will work like new feeding hellafast the whole time

Because it's such a new product on the market- it's hard to find in stock, you can find them online for about $165 and the old Empire Reloader for about $145.

Helpful websites are:

www.paintballgear.com (actionvillage)
www. sakworldpaintball.com
www.paintball-discounters.com
www.orderpaintball.com
www.ansgear.com -the best customer service and prices i've found

all these sites have the hopper for about $165... It's still hard to find a hopper in stock but these sites are the fastest and best paintball discount sites i've found

Overall, this hopper is awesome and works, great! I'd deffinately reccomend this hopper to all competitive tournament players who want to win
Conclusion: I give this product a 10 and would definately reccomend this product. It helped my gun work better and helps it shoot a lot faster! This will make your gun load faster and shoot faster and chop less and work the whole day in a tournament.

Products Used:
Empire Reloader B
Marker Setup: ATS System AT-4 w/ carbine Stock OR Tippmann A-5 A81 Sniper package , 4500psi w/ remote. Empire reloader. Bob Long Ripper (05)
Strengths: None that I have come across. Faster on (No delay)
Weaknesses: Cannot keep up with B Long Ripper
Review: After all the hype with the new improved version of this already great hopper i broke down and bought one. Out of the box it appears to be the same as the older brother. However, the new board and mic installed in the hopper is a good (Not great ) feature. It keeps up well on my ATS System AT4, and E-Mag but leaves alot to be desired on the Bob Long when attempting to lay out mass amounts of paint.
Conclusion: Find someone who already owns one, borrow it and see if u really need to upgrade. My feeling are that the Empire Reloader B2 is NOT any better than the regular Reloader B.

Marker Setup: Black with Gold XSV Ego
14'' Dye Ultralite
Empire B2
45/45 PMI pure energy HP
Strengths: The biggest thing is its more sensitive to sound but there are others
Weaknesses: Nothing
Review: the whole hopper basically looks the same so you could use Empire B shells on it
its way more sensitive than the regular B you can have an Ego on training mode and it will go off
the board is way easier to work with than the old one you don't have to have your timing just right to change the settings
it will spin the cone as soon as u push the on button
Conclusion: I would choose this over every other hopper out there
