The New Speed Strip Halo shell kit is a must have for any Halo hopper owner. It is compatible with all Halo A, Halo B, Reloader B, Reloader B2, or Halo w/ Rip Drive Hoppers. This latest technology allows you to easily clean the inside of your hopper without complete disassembly.
Another great feature is the one piece feed neck. This gives the feed neck better support and will keep it in good condition for a long time. The shell kit is very easy to install and will save you hours of time cleaning and tons of money in new shell kits.

The Warrior Paintball Speed Strip Halo Shell Kit is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I needed a new shell and picked these up at my local for $30. yes it's true that the nuts are not glued on but that's not a horrible problem. it's not like you're going to full disassemble your hopper all the time. i didn't have too many problems getting the board and chassis in.
the lid annoys me. it wiggles from side to side and it's a pain to close. like i really have to force it down. also, the top and bottom part don't align perfectly. there is a little space between the shells on the back right above the power button. i'm hoping nothing gets in.
as far as using it...it's just like any other halo shell. besides the things i've already described there is no big difference.
For the price you really can't beat it if you can overlook the minor imperfections in the design.
After reading the other reviews the first thing I did was glued the nuts in to simplify assembly and disassembly. As stated above the feedneck is much thinner material than a stock Halo shell. Slight force was required to install my Victory board to the point that it stressed the plastic that secures the board at the top on both sides. I did not care for the pin that was used to secure the lid. I use a Speedfeed 2 that fit securely on the shell.
I purchased mine new for $25 and have been very happy with it. If you get frustrated trying to clean your stock shell its well worth it. Gave it an 8 because there is always room for improvement in everything,

Comes apart easily
I was at my local shop when I saw how cheap they were and how you can take them apart without having to take out the race way so I bought them. When I tried to put my internals in the shells I noticed that the board did not fit in. It would not fit at all so after bendind the thing that keeps the board in place I put the other things in. I also noticed that the nuts were not glued in so it was a hassle to screw in the screws. When I was finished, i saw that the lid did not come off it did not have a screw. So after I took a warior brand speed feed and to my shock it did not fit! How could the company warrior be so stupid to make a speed feed that did not even fit their shells? I was pissed. I tried to mount the shells into my feed neck and it did not fit like my old stock shells.
I wish I could use regular shells but my stock shell's feednck sapped off from the previous owner. Do not buy this product! I wish I didn't. Unless you have no other option.
