Products Used:
I tested my friend's 12-volt revvy and have very briefly tested a Ricochet, also i have used a VL200-style gravity hopper.
Marker Setup: Spyder E99, 14in Dye Excel barrel, HALO TSA
Strengths: it has a sound and tilt sensor, it agitates on every ball, it's fast.
Weaknesses: shell became fingerprinted and grimy very quickly. Also, its a little loud.
Review: I was generally quite pleased with the TSA. It is very similar to a Ricochet, in that it agitates once for every ball, and the angular, aerodynamic shape slightly resembles that of a ricochet.

The TSA feeds fast, i could not outshoot it with my E99 on semi mode, or using 3-shot burst. Also, the pushbutton on/off is much more convenient than the lever-style one on my friend's Revvy (he kept forgetting to turn it off). The shell seems to be made of a thick plastic that didn't look as if it would break or crack, although it did get dirty quite easily. My only other complaint besides the griminess is that the spinning action is loud, louder than a revvy and definetly more noticeable because it spins all the time.

The selling feature of this loader is the tilt-sound mechanism. The sound sensor (the means of agitating) is slightly twitchy: i got yelled at by a ref today while using it and it started spinning continuously, it was kind of stupid. However, it never misses a beat when it comes to shooting: you pull the trigger and you've got a ball waiting there. The tilt thing (the impeller spins in different directions to compensate for loader tilt) works, too, but i didnt directly notice it while playing. It all adds up to the fact that there WILL be a ball in your stack, unless you shoot inhumanly fast.
Conclusion: it's only 15-20 dollars more than a revvy, so why not? You get a lot of functionality and great features from the HALO, as long as you don't mind the whirring and keep it generally clean. i'd give it a 9.5, but i cant.
