When I got this loader i was soooooo excited. I got it out and looked at it cause it was so sexy. I loved the look of this loader from the start. The first thing i noticed was the ease of the lid opening. No more having to pry it open like the original empire b. I dont really use fragile paint but the magnetic drive system still works awsome. When I went out and played with it that weekend the first thing i noticed was that it already scratched . The hopper hadn't even really touched the ground. These weren't major scratchs though. The are the really tiny ones you only see when the light hits it right but it still buged me. Surpisingly it isnt that back heavy. When you just have baterese in it feels that when but when you put paint in it it fills balanced. But of course stupid dosn't have a clamping feedneck and it fell out causeing my feedneck to strip so it was totaly balanced. The last thing I didnt like about this loader was that it came with the loader, another floor, and extra magnets for $150 . This really to me is only worth about $100. If you put the rf transmiter and tune up kit i would def. pay $150-175. If I were you I would wait for the price to go down but if you need a new loader this one is it.

I bought a empire magna and have loved everything about it. Ended up buying a virtue crown for it and made it even nicer. The only problem with the magna is the feedneck is prone to snap very easy, I myself have broken it and havent bought another shell for it. also the door that holds the battery pack is very easy to snap loose and lost.

Empire Magna Drive Loader did the job, easy to deal with, could be a little easier to take apart on the fly but not unbearable.

Empire Magna Drive Loader Used it as an upgrade from my torque 440 loudmouth, loved it except for when I would headbutt it every single game I played.

This was my first speedball hopper when i got into paintball, i loved this hopper and didnt see any difference between my prophecy i have now. The only problem i had was the feedneck is on the front of the loader so it makes your marker back heavy and doenst feed the last couple balls in the hopper, for the price you can get these today they are definitely worth it.
