Questions on the prophecy

done some research on this hopper and the only thing really holding me back is the huge size of it...used to have a velocity and it was pretty good...will the prophecy match it? i dont' like a BIG chunk on top of my gun...=D

-is it suitable for a snake player?
-is it back heavy? (even a little?)
-how is battery life?(obviously good since sound activated but how many cases?)
-is it worth it? (probably is just wanted to throw that in there lol)
-how much bigger is it than a pinokio since i have a pinokio and its pretty big and i don't like a big chunk on top of my gun...???
-consistent 15 BPS with HORRID and i mean HORRID reballs??


-probably more questions but ya...i'll EDIT later...


THX guys for ur help...and probably someone has already answered these questions but i guess just reassure me lol...and if it REALLY pisses you off that i posted this then just press the back button and then your GONE...

It is suitable for a snake player, its about the size of halo's/empire Bs. It may be a little back heavy when empty but i don't feel it when its on my gun with paint because most of the paint is in the front so its very balanced. Not sure how battery life is i haven't had it long enough but i hear its pretty good [venture into the empire forums for specifics on that]. I think its well worth it. I haven't seen a size comparison between it and the pinokio, but again if you go into the emprire foru there is a ultimate prophecy thread, go there and it has a bunch of size comparisons, and just if you think the proph is too big, the rotor and proph with the 200 round shell are nearly identical. It will shoot reballs better than any loader i know of right now. That proph thread also has a video of Simon [the creator of the proph] using old dirty reballs with no problem.

Also, since the center of gravity on the Prophecy is so much lower than any other loader, it'll feel lighter to play with since there will be less moment forces exerted everytime you snapshoot.

the size really isn't bad at all, i know where your coming from though. And the 200 front looks sick in my opinion. The loader is nice a short and sleek from a front profile, compare is to a halo but shorter.

It is just about the same size as a Halo B series body, and manages to hold about 50 more rounds. I personally dont like the look of the 200 round nose cone, but mostly because I think the Prophecy looks awesome with the stock cone on the front. The Prophecy is hands down the best loader that I have ever used or owned, and in my opinion it was DEFINITELY worth the $130 that I paid for it.

[EDIT] I dont have much experience with Reballs, but when I did use them it didnt jam and fed all rounds flawlessly.

Already saw both of those. Those reballs didn't even look damaged I want to see him shoot a pod with horrid reballs like dented ripped anything lol. And the size comparison does not show a pinokio.

But thx for posting. . Sooo anyone think this hopper is good for snake players or no???

The Prophecy has a much lower profile than the Pinokio.

You can absolutely use this loader at any position on the field.

i've been hearing about people having their hoppers pop open on a dive, and you being a snake player obviously you'll be diving, so just wait until the quick feed comes out or the friction lid.

Thats not true. At least for me. I am a snake player. I constantly take rough dives, and I have never had a problem with the lid popping open.

I have a hard time believing this, unless those people took the magnets off their lids. Those magnets are very strong and I have a hard time believing you could get one to open unintentionally without hitting the lid on something.

The hopper is designed to fit anyone in any position. That's why it's all quick change components. There is no reason it's a back player loader just because we managed to fit 240 rounds into the same size unit that used to hold just 185!

I actually discussed this with LJ from Dynasty at Pheonix, about using the 200 round front, and his exact words were "I'm not gonna lie, I like the extra paint in the standard front"... and Justin is one of the BEST snake players in the World. In fact he's pretty astounding to watch on a team of great players.

He found it helped him to have the paint so he didn't need to pot up at crucial moments and could just keep going.

The standard 240 loader is a similar cross section to the old 185 round Halo B, but a much lower profile. That lower profile already makes it better for playing in positions like the snake.

A comparison of the Old Halo B to the new Std Prophecy...



A comparison of the Old Halo B to the 200 round Prophecy... the Prophecy here holds over 15 balls more and is way smaller and tighter than the Older design.

Those diagrams blow my mind. I just dont understand how you did it Simon!

Larger capacity, same size, lower profile...

I am certainly not complaining!
