Made using many of the same parts as the Halo, the Empire Reloader series uses sound instead of eyes to sense when to spin the paddle. This eliminates the need for eyes in the loader altogether.

Iíve owned several of these hoppers throughout the years and every time I get one I canít wait to get rid of it. Iíve never been a fan of the audio feed hoppers as they have been inconsistent and constantly fail on me. I am not sure what it is, but I have not had much luck with these.

The weak side of these hoppers are the brittle plastic shells and disassembling the hoppers altogether. The 6 AA battery pack also adds a lot of weight so Iíve always used a 9Volt mod adapters and ran two 9V batteries. They also donít come stock with a rip drive but you can purchase a kit to install one, why bother though, Iíd just get a Halo and be done with it.

This is an excellent entry to tournament level ball hopper. It is a fraction of the rotor's cost, and at the end of the day it will get the job done. That being said, it does not compare very nicely to the new high end hoppers such as the rotor and the prophecy out on the market today.

I have used my Reloader B in rain and shine. Honestly I wouldn't recommend amy other loader. It's easy to use, easy to upgrade and reliable...What more could you ask for. The one and only time I ever had a problem with it was when it ran out of battery power. And that was my fault...the battery was like 3 months old and I play every weekend. If you don't have one, get one.

Empire Reloader B Works well on most markers but in some cases like on a karnivor I had the loader would go crazy and blend paint from the noise of the gun shooting and the back block slapping back to the gun.

Empire Reloader B One of the better halo hoppers. The price was always comparable with equivalent hoppers and doesnt look bad. Plenty of customization to be had!
