Appearance- Well it's not Beautiful, but it's not hideous either (**cough**quantum**cough**) It got a new streamlined body too it, that and the lid are the only major changes between this and the first one

Performance- This ain't no Halo or Vlocity, but in its agitation class its one of the best. The sound activation gives it a quicker start then say, a revolution, because it begins to agitate the balls before there is a gap. And Peolple are always saying "my ion's so quiet it wont pick it up" or "the person next to me may cause it to react". But this is not true. Outside sounds don't really affect it, as it more detects the sound that vibrate up the shell from the feedneck, rather than the sound exiting your barrel and turning around THEN having to enter the harder outside shell of the Hopper. If you shoot around 10 bps (older spyders, lower end cockers, maybe ions), this is the hopper to get. This even works well on mechanical guns, as you won't have to shake them to get them to feed anymore.

Reliability- I've never had a problem with one, and do you see alot of threads going "my reloader II is broke". No you don't. The shells are pretty solid, and the feedneck is solid as well. My friend who was playing for the first time actually poured water INTO mine to clean it while i was filling air. Still worked perfectly, and still does.

Other- It has a magnetic lid, which is AWESOME. no paint falling out, and no snapping the lid. just pull it forward a little, and it drops and holds itself shut. It also has a battery door that slides but does not come off, so you never lose it! Which solves one of the most prominent problems with hoppers now "**cough**egg*cough**". Oh and it gets about 4 cases to a set of 2 nine volts

bad- its still limited by gravity, more expensive than a revy

Value- Great value, they can be had for about 40 Bucks new, less if used

This hopper is great for someone who has been playing for a while, but not long enough to get a nice force feed hopper. It will feed 10-12 BPS, keeping up with most mechanicals and some semi electros. This hopper is extremely durable, and nothing has happened to make me not like this hopper. The only reason I got a new hopper was because I found a VLocity for 30$ new.

Pros: Reballs, sound, battery
Cons: lid
I've been using one of these from the start of playing paintball, they are cheap, work good and last, Simple as that.

Pros -

Reballs - these style of loaders can not be beat in the reball game, they don't jam and keep a ok amount of paint flowing to your marker.

Sound - Like the rest of the Empire gang of loaders it's sound activated. so it's not going to keep spinning if you're out of paint. Since a lot of people who choose this loader play a mix of woodsball and speed ball or all woodsball this is a good loader for them.

Batteries - this loader is pretty good is on batteries really, but if it does die it turns in to the old fashion shake/shoot loader.

Cons

Lid - I do not like the magnetic lid on these loaders, never have never will. But to make them stay closed better you can glue on more magnets from radioshack. That will help keep the lid closed.

Pros: Solid reliability, top-of-line for gravity feeds
Cons: Not for BPS monkeys
This used to be my primary loader, and it still would be if it held as much paint as the Pinokio I use now. It's now my backup because it's as infallible as any loader I've used. I've been able to feed entire hoppers in a single stream at 14 bps, never missing a beat. I've never had another person's gun activate it, and my gun has never failed to activate it.

It's not for those of you who want to try and top-speed your marker (obviously), but if you want something that's going to feed in the low 'teens, you're going to have a tough time finding something more reliable. The design is so simple that it's just not going to break down on you. Battery life is perfectly reasonable too.
