Review: You probably think I was an idiot to buy this loader for a low end marker. But it was worth it. I think. Every time I shoot, there is guaranteed to be a ball in front of the bolt. The quantum fed so slow most of the time I shot the balls were halfway loaded, and would chop more than shoot.

What's good about the Halo B, as I said before, the belt drive force feeds the paintball (or paintballs) down the feedneck. There are no gaps, and the thing feeds constantly until there is pressure and all of the balls are down the feedneck and ready to shoot. This hopper also has a low battery indicator and a one hour auto-off. (I don't know if other hoppers do, but I haven't looked hard enough). It holds 180 balls.

On the field, this thing works pretty well. It doesn't wobble too much when you run, and isn't too loud. You can shoot as fast as you want (I don't know anybody that can pull a trigger on semi over 22 times a second, but there may be someone out there)....

Okay. My baseball team started off with four people on one side, x-ball field. They had one person who had been playing for two years, two as their second time, and one as his first time. It was all of them versus me, and the kid who had been playing two years's dad-who was in the military and had been playing about nine years.Just the two of us. He had some WGP Autococker with a revy. The ref gave us our countdown, I turned on my Halo, and no less than two seconds into the game my gun shot MAD fast and wiped out the real experienced kid and the first-timer. The other guy on my team picked off the other guy in the corner and then we both just walked up shooting at the other kid's bunker like mad. He surrendured. The game ended in about thirty seconds.
Conclusion: Get it. It is so worth it.....

y wouldnt u spend the money on a better gun instead of a hopper that costs as much as a tippmann? u should have gotten a revvy instead. u cant outshoot a revvy with a 98. if u bought enough upgrades to make it shoot over 15 bps then u should have gotten an egg. and if u got enough upgrades to make it shoot over 20 bps then u should have gotten a better gun in the first place and not waste ur money.

i beg to differ a tippmann with a r/t and modded hoses can do around 20 bps and a revvey will only feed 10 bps constintley sp?
