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've been using the B2 for about 2 years now and I've had very few problems with it. It's fast enough to keep up with any format of play that you do. But this loader does have a few downsides. First the assembly and disassembly are a pain the first few times that you do it, but once you figure out what to do you can take the loader apart and put it back together pretty fast. Also the loader sits very high on the gun compared to newer loaders like the rotar. Really its all about preference, plus you can pick these loaders up pretty cheap now a days. Overall I think this is a good quality loader that will act as a great primary or secondary loader for any baller out there.

When purchased use, this loader is absolutely phenomenal for the price. It holds up well with many other loaders, and can not be out shot by many players.
The profile is also nice, although it looks large, it really isn't.
Best part: Warranty, these loaders are warrantied by one of the best companies out, Empire. If the shell breaks, or anything happens to the internals, they will most likely replace them free of charge [as long as the owner didn't toss it off the roof ]
Best budget loader on the market!

Well, I am VERY picky about my loader because of so many times ive been screwed up from a jammed,broken,or slow loader. The Empire B is exactly like a Halo only it is sound activated and comes stock with a rip. IMO i would rather have a loader on 24/7 so i know it works but the rip drive stock bumps it. I came used to the sound activation but you must put a sticky note on there to turn it on and make sure its on. Great loader except the fact that these things are getting lighter and lighter. Hard to celan though so dont F it up.

Empire Reloader B This one is built to last. The design has outlasted many hoppers lives. The only downfall is the size of the ball feeder. Compared to the newer hoppers it's tiny.

The Empire has the same shell design as the Halo B. The sound activated sensor has been great for my marker cept when low on paint. It has pretty much kept up with any marker I've used this on. The only issue was when it didn't feed the rest of the paintballs because the eyes on my marker didn't read a paintball in the breech so the gun wasn't firing. Other than that it's a good loader. Hard to clean when paintballs are broken inside. You have to take the whole thing apart. The neck has broken a few times but was easily replace with a new shell.
