Review: The button on my stock plate, as i stated, was cracking. Pretty soon it was going to be more of a hole than a button & i don't want any unecessary holes on my hopper. So instead of buying another stock plate, i snatched up one of these new Hybrid backplates.

The Hybrid backplate 90% looks & 10% function, that function being it's definitely more durable than the stock plate. It's got a thin metal frame coated in rubber, which is the part that slides into the slots on the hopper shells & the rubbery plate itself is at least 2-3 times thicker than the stock one. Combine that with the etched graphics and you've got one hot backplate... that only you'll see most of the time.

The only downside is the button is a little harder to push. Because of the thickness of the plate and the way the button on it is designed, you have to really push it in there to make contact with the board's button. Although now that i think about it, you could probably stick something small behind the plate's button to fix that problem.
Conclusion: Eventually, if you own a Halo/Reloader B long enough, you're going to wear out the backplate. And after Froogling stock backplates (thank me later), it turns out you can get the Hybrid ones for the same price, if not cheaper! We'll never need stock plates again!
