Hey all. I am new to the forums so I thought I would do my part to better it. Here is my review of the Empire Invert Reloader 2.

First let me start with the advertised features of the loader:
*Magnetic lid, no more snapping!
*Sound activated
*Automatically adjusting sensitivity
*Auto turn off after 30 minutes
*Low battery indicator
*Push button on/off
*10-12 balls per second
*Holds approximately 200 paintballs
*Operates on 2 9V batteries

Pros:
The magnetic lid on this loader is great. You don't have to worry about making sure that your lid is closed all the way. The lid also has a magnet near the hinge to keep it open so it does close shut on you while you are loading. Power the device on and off is a snap. The loader's sound activation works very well and is very consistent, not to mention fairly quiet. The advertised feed rate of 10-12 balls is fairly accurate. I had this loader at a consistent 16 BPS with brand new batteries. Low battery indicator is bright enough to be seen in full sunlight. The agitator doesn't allow balls to get stuck underneath it. The loader holds 200 rounds as advertised. The battery life on the unit is excellent. Good price. Very durable.

Cons:
The unit is a little on the heavy side. I was not a fan of the 2 9V batteries it runs on but the battery life makes up for that.

Final word:
This is a great loader for the intermediate player. I was very surprised at the durability. Last weekend I slipped on some ice and it smacked against the ground and kept going after that. I have hit trees with it, dove on it, dropped it, and it still keeps on trucking. I would recommend this loader again and again.

I love these loaders but if you use them on a low end blow back like a Tippmann or BT they will fall apart after about 8 months to a year. The shell halves will start to seperate and the feed neck will start to crack and become brittle and the magnets will come unglued. I attribute this to the recoil of the marker. All the screws that hold the shell halves together will start to strip out the plastic threads in the shell. Just keep an eye on everything and epoxy the shell halves back together and glue the magnets back in place. Don't keep your feedneck too tight on the downspout and hopefully it won't crack. I have two of these and both of them have fallen apart. At the low price of $50.00 it may be worth it to just replace them each year.

I just bought one of these & played with it for the first time last week.

So far I really like it...especially compared to my old loader. My Evo2 finally fell apart (decided I hate the Evo now).
Its simple to use & seems to do what I need it to - that is, load 10 bps without jamming.

Great review! I got one of these after my 2nd halo broke. :evil: I use it on an Ion with a rampage board and it feeds as fast as I can pull the trigger (I only run in semi). I don't know if that says its a fast loader or I just got slow fingers, but at any rate it's a durable loader. :ninja:
If he rips my arms off, I'll kick him to death.
If he rips my legs off, I'll bite him to death.
If he rips my head off, I'll stare him to death.
And if he gouges my eyes out, I'll curse him from beyond the grave.

I have the Empire Reloader 2 which appears to be the same thing. I've had it for better than two years. The only mod I've done to it is trim down the corners of the lid. They kept getting caught on things and dumping my paint. Other than that I love mine.
