Snap this little delrin pulley shim on and your Halo will beg for mercy! Sparks will fly and Jesus will part the eastern sky. Ok, not really but they increase the speed of your loader to approximately 133% of the stock speed!
The Shocktech Halo Speed Wheel is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Will make your halo load faster. lifetime warranty
Very expensive for a piece of delrin the size of your pinky nail. ($15)
Its basically a delrin wheel that goes over your motor wheel. as simple as that.
Well is it fast....i guess. my reloader b was never slow in the first place. i cant honestly tell. but if you think of the concept of gearing, this wheel is a great idea. this little delrin shim goes over your motor wheel. the shim increases the wheels circumference. its like giving the wheel a larger gear. kind of like your 21 speed mountain bike. the higher/larger gears allow you to maintain higher speeds. the lower/smaller gear allow you to move from a standstill quicker. the only drawback of a larger gear is starting speed, which is something that doesn't concern the halo b/c its burst speed is due to its spring and not its motor or wheel size. when that spring is fully uncompressed, the motor is already at its maximum speed. which is higher b/c of its larger wheel/gear.
i hope i explained it well. if you have any question, please post and i will answer the best i can.
Good concept. im sure it does what it supposed to, although i have no real way of telling.
now the bad. this product is way overpriced. $15 for a tiny round piece of delrin shaped like a wheel.
i would buy this product again just b/c i believe in its concept. but this price kills me. i give the product an 8 but drop it down to a 7 b/c of its insanely high price.

It does have a noticable speed increase which is damn good for and loader
Well its around 15 $ so a lil pricey for its size easy quick install its a good idea better gear ratio makes sense increases speed of the loader around 2 bps avg. from what i tested not a huge diff but inof to want to put this in your halo
Id buy it a faster loader cant hurt but can really help your game
There are a few out there. but shocktech was the first
shocktech degassing on/off
proto feed neck
proto degassing on/off
dye ultralight .692
halo w/ sucide shell, st hotrod kit, empire board
Little prices. its not like paintball is cheap
Great concept. made my halo super fast. the only problem is that having an empire board w/ st hotrod kit. and not having many paintballs left in the hopper and with the raw speed of the cone movement sometimes creats hopper soup. other wise with it your gat's only limitation is the speed of it.
toxic trix, check it unimount, 70 4500 worrgas, halo b w/ empire lid kit +v35 board +new engine + rip drive + shocktech halo speed wheel.
Speed, gives more tourque.
If your not cheap or stupid, none.
i just recently purchased this product for 15$ just like every one else, i guess someone would think thats overpriced but considering its the improvements it makes , 15 is cheap. I installed this and then put my victory board in the first mode with new batterys and i couldnt belive it, it was as fast as the stock halo speed and still have 5 more modes. thye motor also does not have to work as hard either as when it didnt have this product. my halo is super consistant and fast now. the 6th modes is amazingly fast. the only thing i recomend is putting a touch of super glue on it to fasten it to the motor axel because due to the slight tourque increase it could slip when there is a jam. ot a big thing at all though.
I am incredibly impressed and satisfyed by this little thing, its so little ans simple but does so much.

Lucky 15 Barrel
None for me
Put too much pressure on ball stack
I bought this product for dirt cheap (I think about $2) and was excited to put it in. Around the time I bought it, my timmy was having chopping problems. I put this in, and it still chops. I then took it out recently and now no more chopping at all. I believe this causes the gears in the hopper to spin too much per shot, therefore overpressurizing the ball stack. Maybe it's not good for Empire because they're sound activated. Maybe my speed wheel was no good. Hope this helps!
I wouldn't purchase it simply because I had problems. I mean if you find one for cheap, buy it and experiment.
Man my halo is so much faster now, I got it at the World Cup and I cant wait till they come out to the public! I didnt believe that it would have gave it so much more power, but it was like i dropped a turbo charger in it.
When you see 'em, you better get one because they will be gone soon!
