Review: What to say about such a product. I can honestly say that this thing is frickin' AMAZING. It will feed nearly any gun reliably, it completely ignores blowback because of the force fed... there's just so much good about it. The design is fairly simple, if you get paint inside it or something you'll have an easy time cleaning it out and reassembling. The Halo's shell is made out of quite strong plastic, mine's survived numerous drops and smacks all over the place. The Halo feeds with very little battery power and is pretty darn efficient. I have NiMH recharables and they'll last for a very long time, my longest time without falter is 10 cases, but it could probably have lasted longer if I tried. The motor on the Halo B is near silent, you can't hear it when it's feeding. I like my Halo a lot more than my revvie because when I use my Halo I KNOW that balls will keep feeding and I won't chop (regardless of how fast I shoot), I don't have that certainty when I use my revvie... Plus the Halo looks REEEEEEEEEEEEALLY cool.

Now the bad:
- You cannot use paintballs with a very dark or black colored shell because the eye won't see it and will try to keep feeding, makes for bad stuff happening. Simple enough solution... don't use black paint!
- Heavy. No one can deny that the Halo is the heaviest loader out there, but it's a difference of a few ounces, you don't really notice a huge difference with a full hopper and air system.
- Batteries. Takes 6 AA batteries instead of the usual two 9v batteries. This makes the Halo a bit heavier, but more efficient and relable since each battery will continuously supply 1 and 1/2 volts each.
Conclusion: This loader is THE fastest hopper on the market and def. the coolest looking. It's heavy, but IMO that's the ONLY downfall, and not one I hold it accountable for... besides, you can always get lighter batteries. Way to go Odyssey!
