Price increases for hoppers are mKing me very sad! I got my rotor for 140 way back when. But 170 for a proph and 200 for a rotor is outrageous.

Seriously. This was the perfect time to capitalize on the rotor price increase but this prophecy is like $50 more than the last one. And that's not in a smaller shell. Keeping my v2.

Thank you for the clarification. 4-5 ounces lighter is still awesome but 10 just seemed overboard.

Can't wait to get mine in. Ordered it from your website earlier. You mentioned KEE shipped them to you today, when do you expect to get them shipped out?

$170. Ouch. There goes my several-months worth of excitement for this. Sticking with my V2 prophecy, yeah the feedneck design is **** but I haven't had $170 worth of problems with it.

These have been used by the Pro teams for almost a year. The testers have also worked with Empire to correct any issues that pop up. I think most any issues that would have come up have been sorted out pretty well.

The new drive cone is sweet and the old style would not have worked as well with the new sensor technology.

Simon covered most everthing in the videos but I will make a video Thurday and show the anti jam function a bit and some paintball and reball feeding. If anybody has anything else they want to see in the video let me know and I will try to cover it.

Great, thanks for the information. How long has this loader been in testing, just wondering. Sorry boss I just noticed that you said pro teams have been using it for a year.

If you're looking for specifics, I know that most Empire pro teams had been using them just before the PSP Galveston event. That's where they were brought to the media's attention anyway.

This loader is excellent! I have owned just about every loader under the sun. I currently have a current gen Rotor, a current gen Prophecy and the Prophecy Z2 in my bag. The Z2 is what goes on my gun.

It is very light, and the shells are extremely durable. The new matte finish looks very nice, and the shells have a good amount of flex so they won't crack. Note: The old shells will work with this loader, but you will have to trim off the feedneck portion. I do not know if Empire plans on selling new style nose cones or not.

The new feedneck design is so much more robust than the old one (which I've cracked several of). And the new drive cone works great along with the new sensors and software. The cone now will allow for balls to sit lower in the loader. This will increase capacity for same sized shells, and will also make loading a bit easier due to the added depth for balls to fall into.

Of course the real test is how well it loads balls into the gun, and in this regard it does not disappoint! It has been flawless for me. It will drop a whole loader of balls without a hiccup. In fact it is the only loader I've owned that can consistently load the old/crappy reballs that I have in my basement. On the field it has been perfect. It can sense jams and clears them before you even know they occurred.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this loader. There really isn't anywhere that it is lacking. The form, fit, and function are all excellent. I think it looks great, it works great, and I haven't had any problems with it. from me!

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
