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.

Up until the Z2 came out, this was my favorite loader. Never had to worry about eyes not seeing paint or getting dirty. Very few things you had to set. Turn it on, pour in paint and shoot.

And if you did have a jam, the rip drive is still the most reliable way of getting paint into the gun if you have some issue with the paint not feeding.

My biggest gripe with the loader was how much work it was to disassemble. Granted with some practice, break down and reassembly wasn't that difficult. Although it did take a little bit of a learning curve.

I have other more modern loaders, but I still have my reloader Bs.

This hopper was great for the price I paid. However, it was heavy and turning it on and off was more trouble then it was worth in the long run. The hopper did have a nice ability to feed if your hopper died or jammed, which other hoppers did not have at the time.

Empire Reloader B These loaders are nice but they break easily. There are also many different speedfeeds for these badboys

This was one of the first electric loaders that I owned when I first started playing and let me tell u...these hoppers take a beating and keep on feeding....other than the weight factor these are great hoppers and can keep up with any marker out there and with their sound activation system..feeding is a breeze....sure they dnt match speedwise with a rotor or low profile like a spire...but they do hold their own in terms of reliablity....if ur just starting out or are a seasoned veteran this hopper will last u through anything u throw at it....

Pros: Fast, Price
Cons: A little on the heavy side
I love my Empire B. It is able to keep up with my 06 ego and my dm6 with no problems at all. Another huge plus is that it has 3 speed settings so you can run it with just about any marker (the second setting is fast enough i've never had to go to 3 when playing but messed around with it for fun). The one and only bad thing about this hopper is that when you run it on six AA's it can be somewhat heavy, but this honestly doesn't bother me what-so-ever. Great Job Empire!

Edit: The Rip Drive is a plus as well as the hopper will jam up if you are using paint with dents

Empire Reloader B I bought a Reloader B when they first came out and it was great back then. It was faster than a HALO B and a lot more reliable. The shells were very strong and fit easily in almost any feedneck.
