Pros: rip drive

I like the prophecy but i have never been a found of sound activated hoppers. too many variables that can really mess with the hopper. i liked the clutch system controlled by magnets in the drive. also rip drive is a life saver. the down fall with this that you could not take off the nose cone while it was on your hopper which means no dumping all your paint if a ball breaks in your hopper. another issue is trying to get the battery tray back in and the nose on. disassembly can be a tad annoying.

Price: I bought mine used for about $100. Best $100 i have spent.

Pros: Almost same look as the halo b.
Sound activation
Extremely customizable.
RF link to gun always will be ball in the breach.
Can swap bigger nose cones to hold more paint

Cons:
Weak feedneck
Where the top part of the front nose cone locks on i had that thin plastic part crack on mine. Still works but should be thicker for that small area.


Overall: My favorite hopper i do not see the need for any other hopper. Other then the Z2 after testing the prototype and using the public version on the field. As its just a way better version then whats out now.

I've used this loader for several different markers for almost a year now. I've never once had a ball break in it, or jam. Yep, ZERO JAMS. Ive used every quality paint, from white box, all the way up. No issues, ever. By far my favorite loader I've used. I like it more than my rotor I had.

I've only played with it once so far (but tested it plenty) and it's been perfect.

My gun suddenly shoots faster than it did with my vlocity jr. ?? I wasn't aware I must have been outshooting it at times. It's also much more consistent. I wasn't looking to be able to shoot faster (I always play semi, and don't care if I'm slow) but I was pleasantly surprised.

I've played around with the rotor as well as the pinokio, both seem to be good loaders, fast but lacking in new technology... but I have to say the Prophecy is just genius...

Doesn't take you out of play for an hour to clean it thoroughly.
RF or sound activation.
magnets slip design gears to make it gentle on paint.
super fast.
much lighter than it looks(slightly lighter than the rotor).
incredibly durable material (as shown by Simon in the video with the hammer).
very adjustable, and easy to do, though I'm running mine stock.
sits much lower on gun than halos or vlocitys.
great on batteries so far(in comparison to my vlocity jr. 100 times better)

This hopper has no flaws at this point. The only thing is it is trickier to assemble than Simon makes it look, but once you get the nack for it it's simple...

I honestly hated both Halo's I owned because cleaning took so much time and effort, but that problem is fixed here and the loader is much improved.

I'm not saying the Rotor is bad by any means, it's also a great hopper, but it's only a force feeding hopper, on the other hand the prophecy is truely revolutionary...

worth the money in my opinion!

I had a rotor, traded for a prophecy cause i was tired of jamming... I immediately noticed that there was no difference in weight between any other hopper (of new age) and this. it fed quieter and faster than the rotor did (i play nppl, so rate really matters). also, it brought back the same profile awareness that i was so use to with my empire B/Halo setups of 'ode

all in all, i cant find one thing about this hopper that makes it not the absolute best hopper on the market

I have had my prophecy for a while and its worked like a charm every time I have used it. It keeps up with my gun easily and it holds 240 paintballs stock. The mouth is big so its very easy to load it when your playing and if it starts to rain you can switch it from the speed feed if you had one on it to the regular lid in like 10 sec.
