Review: Ok, here is my full bodies review for the best hopper money can buy:

Price-
Ok, this is definetely a con. It is very expensive but I think you will find out why when you purchase it.

Sound Activation-
Unlike the Halo, the Reloader B is sound activated. This means it feeds when your marker is fired by picking up on the sound and vibrations. Also, unlike the Halo, you will be able to use dark shelled or half dark shelled paint without any problems.

3 Speeds-
The Reloader B has 3 Speeds. This is a great feature that allows you to choose how fast you want your loader to feed into your marker. This is another feature the Halo doesn't have.

Optional Battery Packs-
You get to pick between a 4-Battery pack or a 6-battery pack. The 4-Battery pack can decrease the speed and take off some of the wieght, while the 6-Battery pack gives you the full speed. There is a foam pad included to fit the 4 Battery pack better.

Speed-
This is the 2nd fastest loader out there (after the Q-Loader, which though it is fast, it's a pain in the neck). Chances are you are not going to be able to out shoot this hopper. I don't care what marker you own. Thest the speed out yourself and you will be blown away. The secret of the hopper's insane speed is due to the fact that paintballs are force fed into the marker rather than agitated and by chance loaded into the marker. The Reloader B feeds the balls constantly and has them ready on a paddle to be fed directly into the marker. You will never have a feeding gap again!!!! I promise!!!!

Shell Colors-
Just like the Halo, you get a great assortment of colors to choose from. Including a sparkly/metallic shell (what I have) that looks very pimp.

Feed Neck-
Just like the Halo, the feed neck was intentionally made on the large side so that you could custom fit the loader to the marker's feed neck but sanding or using a clamping feed neck.

Rip Drive-
Ok, the Rip-Drive can be put on a Halo, but it's an aftermarket upgrade that can run you up to $50. Or, you can buy the Halo Rip-Drive but I don't know too much about those, so you may want to check the reviews for it. But, it still won't have all the features of the Reloader B. Anyways, the Rip-Drive allows you to A. Manually feed balls when you don't want to turn the hopper on (good for chronos, etc.). Or, B. Un-Jam paintballs. It's a great feature!

Feeding past detents-
This is the only thing you have to be careful of. Make sure you have decent ball detent(s) or the Reloader B will feed past them/it.

Conclusion: The best hopper you can buy! If you outshoot a Revy or Egg, BUY THIS! It has more features than the Halo!!!! For more information or questions, feel free to:

Nice review, like I said in some of the other review comments, I was deciding between the reloader B and the halo. Because of all the awsome points you mentionted I think I am going to get the reloader B.
