Review: I walked in from work today to find a parcel with that familiar Planet Eclipse packing tape and I knew it could be only one thing. Frantically cutting the tape and opening the rather small packing I got my firsy glimpse of the Loader I had heard so much about.

The first thing that caught my attention is the size. In all of the pictures I have found they truly dont do justice to the size of the body. Its much smaller than I expected which was without doubt a bonus. The weight of the Vlocity is flawless. Its much much lighter than the Egg. I was using an Egg II before upgrading and immediately felt such a difference. Even with a full fill it is still very light in comparison to the Egg without. For all you Halo and Reloader users out there it is indeed lighter than these lovely hoppers too folks. I was really impressed.

After no difficulty installing x2 9volt batteries I switched the hopper on and found it to be operating without any flaws. This could also be said when putting a full fill through the hopper. It spat paint back into the pot in a lovely consistant flow. Immediately I was hooked.

The same could be said when testing on a gat. The paint was pumped in consistantly without any error. I saw the hopper stop for a split second before commencing only once and presume this is the anti jam system. If so gone are the days of the rip drive.
Conclusion: This WILL be another hit for Viewloader. Its light, fast and durable. I have no issues with the height of mine as I previously read on multiple occasions as the neck is no bigger than that of a halo on the particular model I have here. If youre after an upgrade or a new hopper which will compete on the tournament field... look no further than this.

My Doo-Rag goes off to those at Viewloader once again.

b does not stand for backman it stands for belt driven
the halo tsa has frontman and backman versions. That is probably where your confusion came about. But who cares?

actually mad dawg is correct. there is a Halo B and there is also a Halo A. the Halo A was made before the Halo B and was very similar except it used gears instead of a belt drive design like the Halo B.
