Review: I think that this is the best loader on the market. Like the Halo and Egg, it can keep up with high (legal) rates of fire (I think 22 bps). Yes, the Victory board can load an advertised 35 bps, but if you need that, you either have a cheater board or a very satisfied girlfriend.

This loader is sound activated. That means that you don't ever have to deal with eyes getting messed up for the various reasons that they do. I have used the loader on an NYX Matrix that was bouncing/ramping like mad, and it kept up just as well as a non-victory board halo. And it will definately keep up with any legal gun.

Rip drive lets you feed paintballs even if you have no battery power left, and it also allows you to manually clear jams (I have yet to jam with full batteries, however). If you need it, you're probably just a good as dead, but its better than nothing. You can que up about 12 balls with this, and they can feed about as fast as a revy, so a last ditch run through is not out of the question if you're out of batteries. It also allowed me to salvage a practice one day when I forgot me batteries at my house. IMO, everyone should buy rip drive for their Halos if they don't just get an Empire B.

Also, you can choose 3 different feed rates, which is nice if you want to conserve paint (not that I'd want to do that).

You can also run the loader on 4 instead of 6 batteries to make it lighter, but I don't usually bother with this since it decreases the maximum feed rate somewhat (never tested this however).

My one complaint is that they used cheap cheap CHEAP plastic on the inside of the loader. One night when I was cleaning out some paint (I have no idea how it got there since there was no shell), I noticed that the feed tube was seperated from the rest of the body. Upon further inspection, I realized that all the seperate parts of the loader were connected with fragile plastic pegs that split in half when I tried to access different parts of the loader. I super glued/taped everything together, and so far its survived a lot of close encounters with terra firma, but its still very poor workmanship.
Conclusion: If you are a back/mid player, you should get this loader. If you are a front player, you *might* be better off with a lighter hopper like a Revy or Egg, but I doubt it.
