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.

First of all I would like to congradulate Kee on making a great hopper. I got this hopper with a virtue crown and a v35 board. When I held it I noticed it was a tad bit heavy but it is easy to not notice once you put it in your feedneck. Also it looks great. I am used to the awkard look of an egg. Also the rip drive is great. All in all this is a 5 star hopper.

This is a great loader for the price ( 30 bucks for a used one) used one for about 4 years Maby 2 or 3 jams. But after 4 years I needed to replace shells and drive cone ( just started cracking and falling apart) but I still have it as a back up and would use it any day

Empire Reloader B I have to say that the Empire reloader b along with all the other halo b type of loaders are still workhorses and keep up with any of the loaders on the market still. Yes they do use more batteries...

I have to say that the Empire reloader b along with all the other halo b type of loaders are still workhorses and keep up with any of the loaders on the market still. Yes they do use more batteries than the rotor and are harder to clean but they still perform just as well if not better than the top loaders on the market. If you can get one of these for cheap these days do it.. Keep it in your bag just incase...you won't be sorry.

Empire Reloader B Overall this is a great a reliable hopper. The only gripe I have with it is the sound activation. It can get a little annoying tapping the loader to get the first few balls fed

I bought this hopper from my friend hardly used and hated it the whole time I had it. I constantly had problems and never could get a full day of play without something messing up. I ended up just giving it away for free. It sucked.

Finally decided to go with a Relo-B from Empire instead of Halo just because I didn't like being trendy, and now that rotor's have dominated the field, i picked up a empire relo-b for dirt cheap and am quite impressed with all of the features on it, great hopper, probably won't have to get a whole new hopper for years thanks to the parts available for these also!!

Empire Reloader B Very fast hopper. Never jammed at all, but I only played with it a couple of times before I had to buy a new one. The feedneck snapped in the middle of a game and was not to happy.

This is a great hopper, solid, fairly reliable and (these days) fairly inexpensive.

If you don't need the latest and greatest a Reloader B is a great way to save a few bucks on gear, or to keep a decent back-up in your bag.
