Viewloader 9 Volt Revolution - The Halo TSA has more paddles, longer battery life, more balls per second, has the Tilt Sound Activation feature, holds more balls, has a stronger shell, and has auto shutoff, but is more expensive.

-Tilt Sound Activation
-A little loud. Not a big problem.
-Tilt Sound Activation means that it is activated by the sound of your paintball gun firing, therefore is spins every time you shoot. This means that instead of waiting for a gap, it is prevented. The Tilt Feature is that if you tilt the hopper to the right, it spins counter-clockwise. If you tilt it to the left, it spins clockwise. This makes sure that paintballs are always being pushed in the direction of the feed neck.
-In my experiance with this hopper, I have had it dry fire a couple of times. It only chopped one time, when I was pinned down behind a tree, just holding down the trigger in Full Auto mode for a long time for cover fire. Eventually, any non-force feed hopper would either chop or dry fire.
-The operation of this hopper is very simple. (At least on the LED version.) All you have to do is press the button once to turn it on, and hold down the button until a red light comes on to turn it off.
-On the LCD version, there is a ball counter and timer, but I don't know the details on those features because I purchased the Backman LED.
I recommend this hopper to anyone that doesn't want to risk breaking the shell, wants pretty fast balls per second, but can't afford a force feed hopper like the Halo B. I give it a 9.
Regular viewloader hopper (non electric) and a halo tsa lcd.
Autococker trilogy competition and spyder fenix
It's pretty quick and is has very sensitive sound activation.
A little noisy.
I have just recently purchased this item after trying out my friends lcd version on my spyder fenix. I have used this hopper in a tourney and rec play already and i have to say for the price that it is well worth it. The tilt activation helps as well as the sound sensitivity. I did kind of want the lcd version but after much thought i just decided on this version and am truly happy. I would reccomend this product to any paintball player whether you have and electronic gun or not. The size of the backman version allows you to shoot a good amount of paintballs.
Good product for any player and give it a 9 out of 10 only for the sound.
Spyder fenix, 48ci 3000psi pure energy, halo tsa led frontman,stock barrel.
sleek look, good price 62.95 at a paintball store in Palm bay, fl, fast
heavy, alittle loud, and only holds 180 or so balls
i was really impressed with the halo tsa led. it loaded fast enogh to keep up with my fenix at full auto at 13 balls a sec, and for the price tou cant really beat it $62.95. i chopped 2 balls but i was holding down full auto for like 3-4 sec. so its ok.
for the price and the speed I highly recamend it.

pretty fast 13-16
a lot more balls than halo b(150)tsa(225)
it is high above my cocker
kinda a loud but not noticeable on the field
i like this because it is thin and long so it carries a lot more than any other loader besides the evo. it is sound activated instead of those shi**y eyes. it doesn't drain batteries like the halo b and its not as ugly as the evo even know it slower, but if your shooting a cocker without an e blade i would recomend this loader. I also like the button you press it and its on not like the halo b, but to shut it off you hold it for 2-3 secomds and it rotates both ways and then shuts off.
i would get this hopper i bought it at my local store for $65 i was going to buy the new riochet aphache but i bought this instead and a pod pack for the same price
im going to give it a 9 because its in the air too much, i dont feel like im walking around with a flag pole but it is a little high
M98 w/ vertical adapter deadon drop and expantion chamber 16" nite stick barrel
double trigger macro line halo TSA backmen LED clear
Plastic is pretty strong Loads very fast (15bps) tilt activation keeps paintballs in feed neck
gets dirty easily and is a little to sensitive to sounds
This hopper is excellent. other paintballers gave it a bad review that it did not deserve. it is awsome hopper and can easily keep up with13bps full auto until it is almost empty.(tried it on a spider imagine) the last few paintballs tend to bounce off the impeller blades and roll around. this is easily solved by making shure there is always at least 20 or so paintballs at the bottom. it is a very streamlined shape and i never yet received a hopper hit. Other players said that the feeder neck broke. This would take alot of pressure to do so dont worry as long as you dont tighten your elbow till the neck is being crushed dont worry
if you are looking for a good fast hopper thats a bit faster than your revvy get this one!
I just used my TSA for the first time in a game(shot it in my backyard a few times) and it worked extremely well. The only problem I had was the batteries would wiggle lose in side and I had to open it up and reposition them. The hopper was very reliable I never out shot except when I for got to turn it on. a very small problem I encountered was if the power is off or out on the hopper the longer arms on the spiny thin in side sometimes blocks the hole so no balls go in.
I love this thing, I heard it doesn't shot as fast as the Halo B, but you get what you pay for and plus I don't shot fast enough to need a fast hopper any ways.

Fast... really fast
big, holds 225 balls
Only comes in clear
gets dirty fast
I love this hopper. I have used my freinds cocker, bushy and timmy and have not been able to out shoot it. The contorls are really easy, just push the button and go to work. It automaticly shuts off when you leave for a while to save batteries. an the batteries last for so long. mine have been in for for 6 months and they still are going strong.
i would get this hopper if you are trigger happy. the speed and the carrying capacity is awsome.

This hopper is a great new addition to the Halo family. It feeds very very fast. It also lets you tilt your hopper to where your gun is almost level and it still feeds. This hopper totally beats the richochet. It took all the good points of the richochet and made them better and fixed the problems. This hopper is also inexpensive. My local shop sells them for $75 bucks and they work great. Halo did a good job.
I would recommend this product to anyone because of its options, price, and high rate of speed.
a little bulky
could feed faster at sometimes (see Review)
All in all this is a pretty good hopper, it is tilt activated so it feed the same no mater what side you are leanig to. It seems to have a pretty sturdy shell and it feeds around 12 BPS.
on the down side it does seem a little large, it does have a bite of a short battery life, and when you have a full hopper the motor may not have enough power to cycle the balls.
This is a pretty nice hopper and as long as your not firing 13+ BPS it should work fine.

this hopper is pretty good except that when i got it only clear was available, i wanted smoke. the tilting thing is so cool, u tilt right is spins left,u tilt left is spins right,push button is also better because i forget things,its also 2 long. i got the LED version so i dont know how the screen works. the lid just recently broke off, that sucked, doesn't fit on my gun, too loose
this is a ok product except its longer than regular hoppers, very fragile,
