More than 5 years
Products Used:
9v revvy, 12v revvy, eVLution, Rico2k, HALO "A", HALO "B"
Marker Setup: Gen2 B2k- CP or J&J Ceramic barrel, AGD Flatline, Red valve, Chaos board Wetworx bolt.

97 autococker - All Alkamp internals, all palmer front pneumatics, WGP hinge and custom milled by G3PB.

Bob Long Intimidator- Currently Stock.... Not for long though. ;)

94 Air Power Vector- Dezigns Custom modded O-ring bolt.
Strengths: Where do I begin? The HALO is without doubt the greatest loader ever invented. Some may disagree, but either their doing something wrong or there is something wrong with their equipment.
My Bushmaster was a blendmaster until I got the Halo "A" which resolved 99%% of the problems I had with than marker. I had a 12v Revvy on it originally and it was worthless with the speed of the Chaos. I wont even discuss the eVLution and the problems I had there.
I recently upgraded from the HALO "A" to the HALO "B", and just when I thought I couldn't be any more impressed I was BLOWN AWAY. As a test I took crappy factory seconds, loaded up my HALO "B", maxed out my chaos (18.2 BPS) and went to town on the trigger. out of an entire hopper fanning the trigger as fast as I could I had NO chops. The HALO "B" is leaps and bounds ahead of it's competition. Not that it really matters but now that it is belt fed it is soooo much quieter than the "A" model was.
Weaknesses: 1) It is a few ounces heavier than other loaders, but as soon as you have it on your marker and you start ripping away on it, you will realize that a few extra ounces are a small price to pay for this big of a performance jump.

2) It is a bit expensive, but hey you get what you pay for.
Conclusion: The HALO "B" is making me go against my #1 rule for writing reviews "nothing is a 10, there is always room for improvement" but really there just isn't. The weight is what it is, and after checking it all out there is really no way to reduce it without using cheap or flimsy materials. The cost... It's worth it. This is unquestionably the best loader money can buy.

On a side note, I had nothing but excellent service from them when I sent my HALO "A" in to be upgraded to a "B". Edward was super friendly, and everyone I dealt with there was more than willing to help and answered my E-mailed questions promptly. Good product, Good service.... Seems like a rarity these days.

If you are running a marker with an extremely high ROF this is the only hopper that will do it justice. 18 BPS on my Chaos B2K, with no chops or misfires and No ACE is mighty impressive.

I just cant say enough good about Odyssey and their HALO.
10 out of 10
