The newest edition to the Empire family is the Scion paintball loader. The Scion incorporates features of our other loaders, the Halo Too and the Prophecy Z2 to create a high-tech middle brother. Featuring a sensor system and a new drive cone based of the Z2 design and packed into the Halo Too shells, we created a loader that functions like a champ without breaking your wallet. The best feature is the addition of a tool-less battery door-Yep!- no more screwdriver needed to change batteries. If the Z2 is our thoroughbred, the Scion is our workhorse. Infrared Break Beam activation New drive cone for more consistent feeding; based off the successful Z2 paintball loader design Self Monitoring Drive Speed, similar to the logic used on the Z2 loader Saves battery life Prevents “Pop-corning” of balls More consistent feeding, so the marker is never starved of paintballs Auto Jam Clearance Scion senses a jammed paintball and reverses to clear the jam 6 Adjustable speed settings Tool-less Battery Door Includes a Rip Drive™ for manual advance or reverse of the ball stack Integrated Freeway Anti-Jam Works very well with Reballs™ Compatible with standard Halo accessories and shells, such as the Quick Load lid

Appearance
Looks just like a Halo. Same material shell. Has the empire logo on the side which looks pretty nice. Does use a tool-less battery door which is a really nice touch.
Performance
This loader feeds better than either of my two Rotors. It automatically senses and backs up any jams, and does so fast enough that your lane isn't interrupted. I haven't tested max BPS but on my axe it fed 15.4bps ramp without problem. I've yet to have it jam up enough that it stops feeding. Even with super ****ty paint.
Reliability (and battery life)
Thus far as said above I've yet to have it jam up on me. The rip drive hasn't been used at all. Battery life has been just about as good as a rotor. I've put probably 15+ cases of paint through it now on a single set of batteries. They need replacing finally as it's feeding a little slower but that's pretty damn good battery life.
Value
Excellent value. I picked the Scion over the Z2 (I needed an empire loader for PSP) because I'm not a fan of the Z2 shells, and I didn't feel like spending a lot of money. This was a great purchase. The only downside to this loader is the screws holding the whole thing together. Due to the design this isn't a problem on the field, but it will be a pain to clean broken paint up.

i won my empire scion at a TC paintball in Grand Rapids MI. at the Friday night league, i was using the V-Max and the upgrade was nice. it is alot faster then i thought it was going to be an it would keep up with my friends rotor. the one thing i noticed is that the capacity was smaller then the v-max. the smart unjam programming is great mine has never stopped feeding and if u don't have the 6 AA batteries u can use a single 9v. i put the exalt feed gate on mine and it works great!

Pros: Looks good, inexpensive
Cons: (6) AA batteries needed
I needed an extra hopper for my son's Mini but didn't want to get him something too expensive (Spire, Z2, etc.) but I didn't want to get him a used loader either, so I choose the Empire Scion for him & it was a good choice. The hopper keeps up with his rate of fire & is easy to program. It looks good, too. The Empire logo finish on the side of the loader is sick! The only thing I didn't like too much about the loader is that is takes six AA batteries, so it's a lil front heavy. But one cool feature is that the battery door has a tool-less feature where it uses a latch instead of the traditional screw. All in all, decent loader for the price.
