This loader is way better than the previous halo design that it was based off of but the shell quality is still low. The new Z2 has taken care of this though so I would recommend going that route. The ease of cleaning though is very good for this but I wish it had a button on/off instead of the toggle switch because it can turn itself on in my gear bag.

Pros: Feeds well, looks great, holds a ton of paint
Cons: Very fragile and poor design
I bought this used from a friend who got it from pro vicious player Parker Rosenthal. It worked good for a while. The sound activation worked fine. But then when I had to change the battery I found that it was extremely hard to take apart and put back together and then one day after I had finally changed the batteries and figured out how to get it working again I took it to a tournament and the board fried. It lit on fire right in front of my eyes. So needless to say I wont be buying a prophecy loader ever again.

Pros: Feeds reliably.
Cons: Brittle shell material.
I've been using a the Prophecy on and off for a couple years now, and the shells finally broke on me at the feedneck. A new shell kit cost me $35, so I'll be back in business soon. That is the biggest drawback of the Prophecy, it uses the same crappy brittle shell material the Halo B has had since the early 2000s. If they used a material similar to the Rotor, I would have no complaints with this hopper. Good battery life, fast feeding, never jammed on me, and holds a good amount of paint with stock shells. It disassembles tool-free, but it's complicated to do. Not nearly as easy to break down as the Rotor, but easier than it's predecessor, the Halo. The Prophecy is the best Halo-based hopper on the market today.

Bought my prophecy as a backup loader and have not had many problems besides the occasional jam or not wanting to register the shots, Thank god for the rip drive. I would prefer a rotor or a z2 over this, but for about 45$ now, you cant really go wrong.

When the v1 prophecy came out, frequent feedneck cracking and motor soldering was a huge problem. Since the release of the v2 and on, it seems Empire really has their game together. You can typically find these for around the same price as a used rotor, if not $10-20 less. Worth checking out!

I've this hopper for a season and a half and it was worked great every time. Does require a lot of battery changes mainly because things in my gearbag can turn it on when not positioned correctly. Randomly gets odd jams when over filled or feeding large bore paint. Other than that the hopper has been money ever since.

I love my prophecy. Great capacity. My favorite feature is its wide mouth which has the ability to swallow up any size pod. Also, because of its large capacity, you don't need to wait for the hopper to be empty before you reload.

I would definitely recommend picking one of these up

The Prophecy is a great all around loader in terms of styling, how easy it is to take apart and clean, and how much more battery life you get out of your loader these days.. but I had 1 major issue with it and that was I found it did not like to feed down to the very end of the hopper. I would have to shake my marker a bit at the end to get the last of the balls to fall down into the feed area. I don't know if lots of people have experienced this as well, but it kind of got on my nerves so I had to sell this hopper in the end.
