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.

This is the best deal in paintball for a loader. I have loved my reloader b and it has performed great on all of my guns unless I forget to change the batteries (most of my guns don't have eyes that work because the ribbon cables were pinched). Four batteries will last for a pretty long time (I play a lot and I've only changed them twice so far ). They don't give you very much warning before they run out though. With the 4 battery configuration and eyes off on my ion I was able to fire 26 bps without a chop or a skipped shot so it's definitely fast enough for actual paintball play. I would recommend this hopper for anyone who is in the market for a good loader.

Empire Reloader B I've always prefer Halo's over the reloaders but it's more personal preference than anything. They get the job done but battery usage is awful and disassembly is even worse.

This is a Great little loader. Works realy well only problems I have had was the feedneck needed to be sanded down a lot, it's a real big pain to take is apart and put it back together, and when you start it up you need to make sure it's quiet or the mic won't set properly.

This was a great hopper when I had it. I used it as my first serious hopper, and it worked out, for awhile. Later in the season though it meet its maker. I took a dive and the hopper wasn't having it. It meet the ground, but didn't break it really. You could see it took a landing. The next match I got shot in the hopper and it shattered. Well that was that for Empy.
