Review: Ok what we have right here is the Angry Halo Board. I picked mine up awhile ago at NPPL Tampa. So it was the updated version. Even though I felt like the people at the tent were blowing smoke, I felt as if I had bought a quality product.

Upon arrival home I installed the board with ease and whent outside with a case of paint and my Defiant 2 set at uncapped ramping. I was simply amazed. The board didnt even skip a beat. A consistent feed rate at a high ROF. I wish I couldve been able to goldwave it. This board is fast. Just hearing the drive cone spin compared to the sound it makes with the stock board made my jaw hit the floor.

The battery life is amazing. I just put new batterys in and after 2 weeks of team practice. ( A 5 man team, we shoot 10 cases a day. Thats 2 cases per person!) So after 4 cases the cone still spins like as if the batterys were still fresh.

The reliability of this board is amazing. Ive never had my hopper go down. The only time I ever had a problem was when two shells melted together and one tried to go down the racetube. A simple reverse of the rip-drive and a quick shake and the problem was solved. Whats amazing is when the board detects a jam is the board will stop. It wont keep the motor spinning and activity will completely cease. It will not resume loading till you turn the board off then back on.

Now even though thats not like the cheetah where the drive cone will go in reverse, it still gets the job done. And keeps you in the game. This board was made for people who like to shoot fast and want to keep the paint coming.

The only thing that really takes away from this boards score (other than no anti-jam) is price. I got mine for 60$. Now even though its not the best it certainly holds it own and is worth the price you pay.
Conclusion: Overall I think this board is good in more ways in one. It has amazing loading speed, consistency, realiability and great battery consumption. These things certainly make up for no anti-jam sequence and price. So overall I give the board a 8 out 10. Definately something to pick up.
Rating:
8 out of 10

I think an 8 is a fair rating, but I am just letting you know that the new angry boards have an auto unjam sequence like vlocites'.
