This heavy duty delrin drive cone replaces the stock Halo & Reloader B drive cone. It's lighter than aluminum & more durable than the stock plactic drive cone. The stainless drive pin & tough paddles make this a permanent replacement. LIFETIME GUARANTEE!
The Zenitram Manufacturing Halo / Reloader B Delrin Cone Drive is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Installation is a little harder, but barely.
This a great piece of gear if you've ever been shut down in mid game due to a broken plastic drive pin or broken paddles. I picked up 2 for both my HALOs and they arrived in 3 days. Installation took a slight bit longer because you could'nt see through the new cone to see it make contact with the spring etc. But if you've ever done it before it's easy to feel your way through. It weighs only slightly more than stock and is infinitely tougher. At $20 a pop it's $15 cheaper than the shocktech ones and $5 cheaper than the critical cones. Not a huge deal but if you own multiple HALOS, it adds up. I have'nt had them long enough to notice if there would be any change in battery life but as they weigh almost the same as stock I can't see any of the increased battery drain that the shocktech cone owners are reporting.
All and all a nearly perfect product. Well worth the money for the piece of mind during the game. You have enough to worry about on the field without wondering when that little plastic tab is going to give out. Who needs a $150 doorstop on the field?

Somewhat labor intensive to install
I got this drive cone because I finally (after almost 2 years) broke the original one, and this one wasn't hardly five bucks more, and has an UNBREAKABLE steel engagement pin, and a LIFETIME warranty. Can't go wrong there... It was a little, uh, interesting, to set up, but certainly wasn't outrageously difficult to install. Basically, you have to get it lined up with the spring, spin it, lift it over the stop tab while NOT LETTING the spring drop off... Like I said, not rocket science, but not super duper easy...
As far as performance, I haven't had it long enough to notice anything good or bad, but I'm sure it will be more than fine... Steel pin, sturdy delrin paddles, certainly a little more heavy-duty than stock, while being lighter than those aluminum pieces from other manufacturers.
Very pleased with my purchase, and recommend this cone to anybody looking to replace the stock piece. Not really sure if I would have bought it if the original hadn't broken, just my policy (if it ain't broke...), but have nothing to hold against this product, and have had good results so far, so 10 out of 10 is fair for me.

All in all, this is a fine product in my opinion. Most players will have little difficulty installing one of these, but instructions would be a nice touch for those who are less mechanically inclined.
The drive cone itself is machined from solid delrin. This material is far less brittle than the polycarbonate they use for the stock drive cone. I seriously doubt anything could break one of these in normal use. By contrast, I have seen several broken stock parts.
Also, comparing this product to the shocktech aluminum cone, there is little difference in performance but for one. It's quieter. The aluminum cones make a metallic "clink" when the internal spring unwinds. This could signal your opponent that you need to reload, and get you bunkered. The delrin doesn't ring like a bell, so you won't have that problem.
Finally, my favorite feature. Delrin can be dyed! When I bought my new drive cone, it was a snowy white, fresh from the mill. I promptly dyed it black and it really brings out the detail. Delrin can be dyed any color to match your hopper shells, etc. and this is something you can do at home. The shocktech cone would need to be anodized, and that can be expensive.
Doesn't feed any more or less reliably than any other drive cone, but will never break like the stock one. If you need a replacement cone, this is an excellent choice. Installing one now will ensure that your stock cone doesn't break at the worst possible moment. Great product.
Delrin so you can dye it
Tab inside is metal
I think I got this for $20, right before they raised the price to $25. I was easy to install and works great. I had bought it because I had heard of people's stock cone drives breaking. The day it arrived at my house I was playing pb and the little tab inside the stock cone drive which is plastic broke so I couldn't play the rest of the day. Luckily the new conedrive was at my doorstep when I got home. The new tab inside is metal so it won't break and if it somehow does, it has a lifetime warranty. Just get this even if your stock cone drive isn't broken so you aren't nervous about it breaking in a game.
Oh I just remembered I did fix the stock cone drive though when I got home though by just drilling a thin screw from the top of the cone drive into where the tab broke off. I still like this more more though, and the screw made the light stock cone drive unbalanced so it wobbled around.
Buy this product even if your old cone drive isn't broken

None really, does it's job
A good replacement for the stock drive cone. Very durable, have used for 12 months with no problem. Some folks say it is 1oz heavier, but can you really feel 1 ounch difference? I have been really happy with this product, especially after having my stock cone break one month after purchase. Well worth the money.
A good solid produce, works as advertized. I would recommend to anyone and give it an above average rating.
stock drive cone, no comparison, this one doesn't break.

It won't break!!!
None that I have found so far.
After breaking off 2 of the paddle dealies from my stock drive cone in one afternoon of playing, which jammed up my gun (and made me unable to make a easy shot at that guy who moved into the snake) I had to try something diffrent. The field owner mentioned this product and I ordered one online the next day. I recieved it a few days later, slapped it in and have had no problems since and have not noticed any differences positive or negative in performance of my halo.
I highly recommend this product. It has worked great for me.
Stock Halo drivers, modified stock drivers, Revy adn Egg Halos are great, a few little flaws but this Cone drive is the bomb! Makes it bullet proof!
DM4, Nitro Duck, Hammer head, boys have Shockers, freaks, Nitro ducks and we all have Halos.
Nicely made, fit right in, works great, sounds quite - thats delrin!
Just a little bit heavier than stock, great mfg. quality.
I tried to dry fit the driver with some "new" Halo parts and it just did not work??? So I installed it directly inot my Halo and it fit great, works GREAT! I tried the Zenitram driver in one of the other halos and the drive shaft was shorter then in my halo, this caused the driver to bind-up when the screw was tightened. I added a washer/shim to the shaft and it works GREAT!
I guess the Halo tolerances are a bit off.... but it all works great now.
I'll wait till we break a nother drive cone, but I certainly will replace it with - Zenitram Halo Delrin Drive Cone. It's a great product!
Little Harder to Install Because You Can't See Through it.
These things are great, I have one in each of my 3 halos. If you have ever had a cone break on you during a tournament and you had to sit there spinning your rip drive you know this is a must have upgrade. Almost as light as the stock cone only 10 times stronger with a lifetime warranty. At PSP Chicago last year I had to buy 3 plastic cones at the Odysseys both during the week at $7/each because they kept snapping that plactice tab off that keeps the spring tention. For $20 you can't go wrong and they are lighter then the Shocktech cones so it doesn't drain the battery any faster then the stock cone.
Won't break, lighter than the Shockteck, and cost is very reasonable.
Cone fits great, and does not drag the bottom of the feed cup like some of the stock ones do. Great piece of mind if you have ever snapped the stock cone. Only adds a little weight over the stock cone. You can also dye the cone with RIT dye, just to be a PIMP!
shocktech drive cone, stock drive cone, screw mod cone
Proto, dm4, check it unimount, 16" UL or CP 2 piece, hybrid clamping rise, crossfire lp 68/45, etc.
stronger, about the same weight, hopefully permanent solution, great Customer Service.
Might not fit the new halos, 0.1oz heavier, no directions, hard to see through.
I ordered 3 of these drive cones for my halos i have. I took the halos drive cones out and tried putting them in. they did not fit. apparently when they sit in the cup these cones sit too high from the bottom of all 3 of my hoppers. after contacting customer service they sent me the newly updated drive cones and said that the OEM(odyssey) had changed their drive cup. they did not believe me that their product could be messed up so i sent it to them to prove i wasn't on crack. i didn't appreciate being considered a halo newbie by the company but they made everything right and reimbursed me. they are now aware of the new drive cups and have started to adjust for them. these new products will work on all halos now until ogi changes the design again.
if you buy one of these make sure you get the new updated ones. Now i have them working after sending back the cones and pointing out the problem. Hopefully i get to test them more this weekend. They actually spin about the same as the stock and are alot more sturdy.
8 out of 10
