Empire - Reloader II Reviews
Empire Reloader II This hopper sucks in my opinion. the shell is a piece of crap. it cracked on me the first time i used it. Another problem i had with it was that it was also a pain in the *** to take apart.

This was my first hopper, and for a sound activated hopper it feed pretty well. I have kept it as an extreme back up and have had to bust it out at tournaments and was shocked to find it keep up with the 12.5 bps workload.

These are decent starter hoppers, and if you can ignore the over the top profile, it will treat you well.

This is a great hopper i bought it because on my azodin kaos i had a gravity feed and it would constantly chop. i bought this and in a full days worth a play i had one break and i believe that that was the barrels fault. I bought it used with an HPA carbon fiber tank for 50$ but I think its 25$ new. great gun if you need to step you BPS up and have a gravity hopper.

Empire Reloader II The hopper worked on my mech autococker great, never had a problem feeding. very efficient on batteries. The shell is very weak and really the only flaw with this hopper.

Empire Reloader II I got one of these and though my gun can outshoot its 10-12 bps feed rate I still like it. You can get some fun looks at the field when you show up with one with a speedfeed attached.

So I got this for My WGP Trilogy Pro and had used it for a while without a hitch. That was back in 2008, and after a while I just stopped playing. Now I am getting back into the game, and had taken my stuff out of storage. I got one of my friends to come and play with me and let him use this due to not having a good hopper, and the Trilogy is my backup gun. In the first few seconds of the game, this Reloader 2 launched it self from the marker and into a nearby tree, shattering into two halves. I'm not sure what caused it, but, well...

CONS
  • Screws go directly in the plastic; I just use duct tape to hold it together
  • WEAK magnets
  • WEAK battery door; use duct tape

Yes, it's bullet proof. I soaked this whole thing with water to get all the paint out, took it apart, soaked EVERYTHING, then let it air dry over night. Next day, assembled it, put in batteries, and it works perfectly. I don't like the magnetic lid at all. It opens by itself a lot in the middle of a game, spilling your paint everywhere.

I really enjoy this loader. I have had it for three months and have put it through hell. Incredibly durable in dusty/ muddy conditions. I really like it, but the board confuses me. I keep trying to program it, but I have serious trouble haha. It's a bit heavier than other loaders, but it is also seventy dollars cheaper than those loaders.

I've had this hopper for a long time and it's by far my favorite. I use it on my mechanical autococker and my modded e-frame Spyder (capped at 12bps) and I never have feed issues. It won't keep up with my e-frame cocker, but that's not what it's meant for.

The shell is very durable, much more so than my Eggy shells. The battery tray slides freely but won't fall out or break. I particularly like the sound-activated style of hopper. Eliminates eye problems, and ensures the motor only runs when the marker fires. I get so much battery life out of this hopper that I don't actually know how long the batteries will last. I've never killed a set during a day of play.

The magnetic lid has its ups and downs. I like it because it's easier to open and close than standard lids, and it doesn't have a spring to break or lose. However, I do wish the magnets were slightly stronger. The lid stays on fine during normal play, but I've dumped a bunch of paintballs on the ground several times because the lid popped open after taking a hard spill.

Overall, great hopper. If you've got a semi-auto gun (or a slow e-frame gun) and want something reliable, you can't go wrong.
