Review: Most people have told me that I really don't need a Halo on an Impulse. They have told me to stick with a Revolution. The thing is, I have outshot some Revolutions. There is NO way that I can outshoot my Halo. It says on the box that it loads up to 20 balls per second and it does. There is no way I can shoot that fast. So I'll stick with my Halo.

The button is a little hard to press, especially when you have gloves on, but you will get the hang of it. It is very hungry for batteries, so if you own a Halo be sure and keep some extra batteries with you. It is a little heavy too. If you have a hi-rise feedneck then it will make it wobble. A few weeks ago my battery door broke off, but not just the door, the little slot that holds the door on broke as well. That very same day when I was taking the loader off of my gun, it broke off into my feedneck. This is not a bad problem because you can buy body shells online or at a pro shop for about $30 or less.
Aside from the problems the Halo is a good loader. Unlike the Empire Reloader, which is sound activated, the Halo has eyes that see the paint and let it know when to load. Any dark colored shell won't work to well in it. But it loads really fast and I haven't seen anyone outshoot one. Also, you will have to sand it down unless you have a feedneck that adjust to your hopper. But on Oddyssey's website they say that they purposely make the neck too big so it will fit any gun. A great loader for ANY gun.
Conclusion: Even though I have had a few problems with mine, I still give it a 9.

so are you saying the reloader B is crap bc its sound activated. Reloade has better eyes which can see dark paint,3 different speed modes.. which is alot faster then a stock halo B,plus reloader has both 4 batt and 6 batt options.

"Reloade has better eyes which can see dark paint"

The Reloader B has no eye, as it is purely controlled by sound activation.

Thank you Uziel Gal, and papaintballer15, I wasn't saying that the Empire was crap. I was just saying that unlike the Halo, the Empire is sound activated, It doesn't have an eye like the Halo. And I don't mean that like it's worse. They are both great loaders.

I would get a Halo over an Egg and if you get the Halo, get one with a Rip Drive. You never know when your battery is going to run out.
