While this is a good hopper (reliable feeding, forcefeed, etc) the main issue is with the plastic shell.

If you are serious about paintballing (diving, bumping into obstacles, etc) you might end up without a working hopper soon.

The plastic shell si thin and will break easily. Replacement shells can be purchased online for 30$ or so.

The prophecy is in my opinion a good loader. I like that you have the option to change the settings you use rather then having an off/on mode. I also like the ability to adjust the magnets in the drive system to accommodate the type of paint you are shooting.

What I dont like is that reassembly is kind of a pain because the shells dont line up very easily. I also dont like is how the feedneck breaks fairly easily on them.

Empire Prophecy Good loaders if you can't afford the rotor but overall aren't too great they jam a lot and brake easy.

I have been using this loader since HB 2009, great loader has many style and cone options, now with the V2 it has a greater shell and feednack setup, never had a ball jam, and the rip drive is a plus.

cons
breakdown takes a lil longer than a rotor, but not bad, once you know the breakdown

Not a fan of the hopper personally. I got the forward shell nose so that it was a slimmer profile and it wouldnt fit properly. I had a difficult time putting the guts of the hopper back together. it was a pain in the butt. I would rather use a Rotor and think thats what every one should use. The prophecy isnt that good of a hopper in my eyes.
