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.

i got my empire b and liked it for the first month or so but it went to hell rom there,i dropped it on my carpet and the shells cracked about a week later after i bought new shells i was playin with it and the board fried( i dont know how yet) so after that i threw it away(literally) and so if you want an empire b you would have to put around $60 minimum to get it to be a good hopper

I have used and loved my Reloader B for well over a year. I loved the Halo B design but grew tired of all of the extra hassle that came with the eyes used to detect paintballs in the breech. The Reloader B activates with sound and therefore eliminates the need for eyes. This makes disassembly very easy and much less complicated. The Reloader B also comes standard with a board capable of 36BPS and a Rip Drive! I have never once had a single issue with my Reloader B aside from buying new shells. What can you expect, nothing lasts forever. New shells are cheap and easy to install.

Empire Reloader B This is a step below the B2 - but there is a noticeable drop off. I still liked this better than my Halo, the sound activation is a much better mechanism. Its adjustable, and you can buy a V35 board...

This is a step below the B2 - but there is a noticeable drop off. I still liked this better than my Halo, the sound activation is a much better mechanism. Its adjustable, and you can buy a V35 board that will make it go even faster.

Like the B2, these are damn near impossible to clean and strip between games - 30 minutes at least. Buy the quick-strip shells (Cranium, etc.) if you play competitive or shop a lot.

Empire Reloader B It sound activated, so if you shoot a really quit gun, it may not always activate. If you dive hard the lid will come open and relesae your paintballs everywhere.

Empire Reloader B This is a smooth feeding loader. It's great as long as it doesn't hit the ground hard which will often break the feedneck.
