Review: When I first saw the magna I hated its look. I still do hate its look but it’s sits A LOT nicer on a marker then the older style Halos.

I was using a 07 Evil Minion for all my testing of the feel/look of the loader. The new magnetic lid is definitely better than the old style one with the ability of putting more magnets on it the lid. But I still took the lid off and put on a speed cap. Like the Halo/Reloader B shells that have the magnetic lid these have a smaller mouth also.

The added capacity of the loader is really nice for back players. The 2 trays also are nice since you can change how much you want in the loader, I don’t know why anyone would use the lesser capacity ramp. The CF shells actually hold 30 balls more than the reg. shells.

When it comes to programming it’s as straight forward as the Reloader B2. So if you can operate it you can operate the Magna. I have not used the RF ability of the board so I cannot comment on it.

The Magna is def fast. It’s just as fast as a B2 on setting 6 but on setting 4 or so!

The only bad thing I have to say about this loader is that with the minion and a 45/45 on the magna pretty much sat on the top of my Events mask, if you put the tail of the marker close/on the nose of your mask. But if you don’t play at tight as that and you’ll be totally fine.

If you’re a back player you’ll love this loader due to it’s higher capacity, and how fast it is. If you’re a front player and dive a lot like I do you’ll want to make sure your feed neck is a little tighter than normal since I’ve had it spun and broke an entire loader of paint in it. This was the first game I played with it. I gave it a second chance though.

EDIT - 1-24-08 - I put a reg halo in a pair of Magna shells so if you wanted to do that check out this thread from PB Nation.http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=2453163
Conclusion: If you're looking for a new loader the Magna is pretty good. If you already have a halo then get the Clutch kit for it and skip the Magna.
