Strengths: Force feeding, Fast, Reliable, Programmable upto 35bps w/ Victory Board, Solid Construction, Upgradeable
Weaknesses: Pricey, Little heavy but not as heavy as you would think, Sucks up batteries
Review: The HALO B is a very well built well engineered loader. Force feeding is a real advantage over other loaders. This ensures that you will never skip a shot when your putting out large amounts of paint. This loader is the fastest out there no question about it. This loader is ultra reliable and will work every time so long as the batteries are good. But if the batteries fail simply use the Rip Drive and you can stay in the game. The HALO B is fully programmable with the Victory Board from 17 to 35bps....fast enough for any marker out on the market today. This loader is built very well. Its not made of cheap plastic and will stand up to the normal use of paintball. This loader is upgradeable. If you happen to buy a base level HALO B you can get the Rip Drive and the Victory Board (as well as a few other boards) as optional upgrades. And undoubtedly in the future Odyssey will have other upgrades for the HALO.

The HALO B is rather pricey but you really do get what you pay for. It is a little heavy complared to other loaders. However, it isn't really all that heavy. If you compared a Revvy, an Egg II, and a HALO all fully loaded with paintballs for weight....they all weight virtually the same. The only real down side to the HALO is that it sucks up batteries. But then again that is also why it is programmable for bps limits. The lower the bps setting the less battery powerr will be used.
Conclusion: I would recommend the HALO B to anyone that is looking for a top quality loader that will never let them down. If you are considering buying an Egg II don't waste your money...get a HALO B you wont regret it.

that fully programmable thing is only if you have a victory board in it, otherwise you cant program it at all, i know i have 3, one with a victory board and rip, another with rip, and a plain one
