revvy and egg 2 (they are crap), reloader (only hopper that it good besides the halo b)
very fast, good shell, on and off is easy to use.
when i saw the price i wasn't sure if it worked well enough for 120. but it does! this is by far the best hopper in the world. after sliding into a bunker with my revvy cracked and droped all my balls i ahd enough of it. when i got the halo it was taking more abuse then the revvy and holding up great! to top it off the customer service is great if anything goes wrong and there are alot of upgrades to make the halo better.
don't get the viewloader hoppers get this. it is 100 times better then the egg even with y board. it is well worth the 120 dollar price tag.

Needs lots of batteries, heavy, can't use black paint
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.
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!

Speed, look, strength
This hopper is the best hopper out there hands down. It's got incedible speed (22+ bps), it's very durable compared to other hoppers, it looks just plain sweet!, and it's not that heavy. People say it's heavy, trust me, compared to an EggII it's not any heavier. Like what? 3 ounces? This hopper is great, if you have strong enough ball detents go for it. It's the best of the best.
If you can afford this, buy it. It's the fastest (next to the $300 Q-Loader.) loader out there, it's also the best looking IMO. If you've got the cash this is the best investment you could possibly get! GO FOR IT!

Very Fast and not to loud
The halo B simply rocks i love it. It is the only loader that can keep up with my Triple A Autococker. it can feed a Little more than 22BPS. The halo B is just nuts just like my cocker but dont take my word buy it and try it. you will like it .
i would definitely recommend this loader if you have a marker that can keep up with the halo B if not then don't waste your money
Kinda big, not too heavy, and it could hold more balls.
Use this on a raced shock tech cocker. The guy had owned it for a year and he has never broken a ball in it. He had the race set up for 16 bps on full auto and it kept up. It was really impressive, especialy with how hard it can be to feed closed bolt systems at times. The thing could just fly. He had never had it break down on him either. One time he broke his battery door, and it was replaced in a week for free.
Now, I used it and saw some of the down sides. WHile I didn't receive any hopper hits, I did get the idea of it. It is kinda big. Also, it only holds 170 balls about. Not a big deal, but I would like a few more balls in there at times. Not near as noisy as the original halos, and very quick on response. I give it a ten, it had some minor problems with size and such, but nothing that hindered my performance, and alot that improved it.
2003 Vertical Autococker
Fast, quiet, shell is thick, easy to use, looks good, center feedneck, balances well
It's a little heavy compared to other loaders.
This is the best loader ever, hands down. It is the fastest, most quiet loader I have used. The centerfeed is nice because it levels out your gun. The lid stays on tight, and pops up fast when you open it. The lid is also easier to use then the Evi 2 lid, what was VL thinking. It is a little heavier than other loaders, but you get used to it.
If you want the loader that is the best, get the HALO B. It out preforms all the other loaders on the market. Save the extra money, buy the HALO B, and don't think about the Evi 2; unless you want a football on top of your marker.

vary quite in comparison to the ricochet
this is by far the best hopper i have ever had the plesure of useing this hopper is extremly fast never worry about outshooting your gun againthe only down side is you must sand down the neck to get a "custom fit" a tight fit this is a vary boring process which takes a few hourers but in the end its worth it use the rough sand paper followed by thefine one MAKE sure that you check the fit of it on your gun so that you dont make it a loose fit some have had problems with double feeding due to the torque of the halo i have had no problems with this
the best a fastest hopper it is best for high end guns not for blowback guns a little pricey but well worth it

Not too heavy, very fast, durable
price and sucks up batteries fast
Very well made hopper, much faster than my old evo2 was. You have to use good batteries because crappy ones will run out in a game or two. The only downside i found was that the hopper was expensive and i bought a halo no rise so i didnt have to sand the feed neck.
I would reccomend this to anybody who outshoots a ev02, but if you dont outshoot it dont bother getting it the ev0 2 works great if you dont outshoot it.

If it goes down, you are screwed, heavy, needs 6 batteries, cost alot
My review is a mix, I got my first HaloB for a tournament, the thing went down on me at least 4 times in matchs, once costing our team the game and got me bunkered.
I got a bad one and got a new HaloB, the new one so far has yet to go down on me.
It is the fastest but truth be told I don't use it and I use my Revolution over it, hey my gun has anti chop eyes for a reason. The loader is just too big for a tiny lil GZ gives it a top heavy feel.
My first HaloB is the worst peice of paintball gear I have ever owned. My second preforms just as advertised, because of my first Halo and the game it cost us for the semi finals, I can not give HaloB anything over a 3, if they can't get it right half the time, don't bother and the fact I still use my 4 year old rev over it.

I will pay you if you can outshoot this loader
weaknesses? are you kidding?
What can I say? This is the perfect loader- proven that it cant be outshot because of its forcefeed system causes you to fly with the best as it has been proven that a normal human cant shoot more than 9 by hand. (the gun may shoot but a human can only pull the trigger 9x per second...)
Looks sweeeet! Loader neck is a little large but file it down and it will fit perfectly-
I have not chopped a ball as fast as i have pushed my excellerator so...
Perfect- kudos to Odyssey and all the effort involved in this perfect pricey hopper
