2k3 Cocker with Eclipse Eblade
Freak barrel kit, THOR reg with PMI 68/4500.
A good load of Diablo paintballs.
Fast - Reasonable weight - CUSTOMER SERVICE ROCKS
Ball breaks are a mess. Lower capacity than other loaders.
I'm not going to rant about how fast this loader is. Everyone pretty much has a good idea now. Let's just say it made a big difference going from a 12v rev to the Halo on my Eblade setup.
Shell looks like it's sturdy. People are reporting shell breaks, but I guess it happens. I've has the anti-jam bead plastic rod break yesterday, resulting in one helluva of a mess. Basically, the plastic beads fell in the force feeder, and resulted in me having a brand new flame(paint)-thrower. The idea is that ball breaks in the HALO, when they happen, are quite horrible to clean up. I used to pour water in my 12v without fear of the electric components, but I'm a bit more conservative on a 130$ loader.
Aside that, the folks at Odyssey are outstanding in their customer service. I just got the replacement part (the anti-jam beads) shipped to me, no questions asked. I believe that everyone agrees their customer service is excellent. Their product could use a bit more thinking on the engineering side (the anti-jam beads could be held by a stronger yet flexible rubberish material).
Very good loader. I've got no clue as to how the Evo 2 performs, but I've taken a look at it, and the feeding system looks somewhat less evolved than the one on the Halo.

FAST (20+ bps)
sucks on some guns (read review body)
These things are great. with brand new batteries, they will feed around 23 bps. even with almost dead batteries, they can feed around 20 bps. If I want to outrun it, I have to try at it.
On some guns (especially closed bolts) these things are blenders. Since it has downward pressure on the ball stack into the breech, the bolt will sometimes knick the second ball if the balls are small bore so when it's loaded into the breech, it's damaged and is likely to break. This is also a problem with powerfeeds, because there is so much pressure on the balls, it doesn't have room to drop out of the feed neck and into the breech. thats all that keeps this thing from getting a 10.
of course, a center feed mag with lvl 10 will alleviate these problems easily.
by this if your revvy is no longer cutting it.

98 custom rt trigger double trigger 14 inch tear drop remote line 12 volt revvy soon to have low preusre and hpa
FASTer then a bat out of hell lol
really heavy it is consistan when you have low balls but hey wat is
this is a great hopper if you are a back player and need the fir power front players get a 2k or a AK those are light and feed faster then a revvy evo 2s are nicee to but they cant touch 22 bps the halo is heavy but it is fast the neck may need some sanding down or if ur lie my friend alot fo sanding down A WHOLE LOT but odsey is a greata coimpany you can send back ur halo to get updated for only 10 bucks and its worht it its great sutomer service
if youtr gun can shoot 20 bps get this hopper its worth it and dont get a revvy no matter wat they have gone to crap im veyr disapointed in mine
Keeps up with MOST markers unless you have a timmy with an equalizer board. Never outshot it with my freeflow cocker with race frame, impulse, or angel.FAST, up to 23 bps anyways.
I OUTSHOT IT!! I chop every now and then when I'm playin rec ball, but in tourny's i can only shoot about 20 bps and havent outshot it in a tourny yet. I thought nothing could outshoot this loader? Don't use any paint with black on it.
Unless you have a gun with an equalizer board get it! Well worth the money.

Ok, I just got this today and this baby is FAAASSSTTT!!!! I did a drop test and it beat a revy easily. Here are the good things:
1) really fast
2) looks awesome, a whole lot better than an egg looks
3) really fast
4) lid stays on securely
5) available in many colors, and you can dye them
6) awesome customer service, although I hope I never have to use them
7) feedback is too big so you can sand it for that perfect fit
8) did I mention that it is really fast??
there are very very few bad things about this loader:
1) expensive but hey, you get what you pay for
2) batteries are a lil pain
3) only holds 180 balls
4) does't perforn 100%% w/ low balls
My conclusion is that this hopper is worth every penny. I haven't tested a egg II yet but I hear it is really fast. I prefer the Halo though because: looks better, is a lil faster but not much, and it's sleek design is better. But hey, everyone has their own opinion and this is mine. Later

2k2 blue dust Fly LCD Angel, with basically all the same mods as my Impact IR3
This thing is made well, and loads fast! I like the sleek shape of it. The shell appears to be made of lexan, which is very durable. I own 2 Halo B's, one for each of my Angels, and they both perform flawlessly if you perform a couple simple mods. These loaders are known for pushing pretty hard, so on Angels it's recomended that you put a little grease on the belt to let it slip a little. And get a stronger detent like the Cobra Indestruct. This might not be necessary on some markers. Just give it a try and see what happens. Odyssey also has some helpful tips on their website for getting the Halo B to perform well. Odyssey is a great company and has good customer service. I hope that they continue to stay in business and keep making great products, dispite the lawsuit from stupid Brass Eagle.
It's a little heavy, but that usually means that it's well made. Be prepared to sand down the feedneck. It was easy with a dremmel tool and sanding drum bit. SOme guys complain about having to sand down the oversized neck, but this lets you customize it for a tight fit in your feedneck without having to put tape or something on it to make it fit tight.
Note: if you sand off too much you can spread on some Super Glue gel on the neck and let it dry. This will be like adding plastic back on the neck.
I got my brand new Smoke Halo B's for $100 each on Ebay. I've seen them sell on a couple websites for $110.
The Halo B is my #1 choice so far. But the Ego2 comes in a close 2nd.

View loader 12V revy, Evolution II, standard viewloader
M3 Black Dragun Sniper LCD, Halo B (smoke), Dead X ex chamber, delrin bolt, teardrop 14"
22+ BPS-Fastest available bps loader available. Comes in many cool colors, sophisticated electronics/motor. Solid look/feel. Looks good on a marker. WILL catch up when set on full auto 20bps! I know, I tried it!!
Switch is kinda tricky at first. Not adjustable speed. Can't gravity drop unless you get that attachment from oddyessey. A bit on the heavy side. Be nice if It could hold a few more balls.
This is the best hopper you can buy. However, keep in mind that Halo's are only intended to work in high-end markers. If you put it in your low end spyder or brass eagle marker, it might double feed since they're not suppose to go that fast. The evoultion II might be more versatile since you can set it at 4 bps for the slower pump and semi markers. Why get a bulky ass warp feed when you could just get a Halo B.
Revvy w/ x-board
Halo is by far the fastest loader....
Toxic Vision Impulse
I-Frame with Blue Dye Stickies
Jackhammer II LPR
Eclipse DART Valve, DART Bolt, SS Hammer, Valve Cap, Fangz
ND Slik-Shot Ram Shaft, Bolt Pin
Where do you start...oh yeah, the speed. Dang this thing feeds extremely fast. Short fast bursts! Long fast strings...it doesn't matter, you will not skip a shot.
It has a nice big lid, easy for loading quickly and easily.
Odyssey has AWESOME customer support. They believe that their product should never break under any circumstances and they fix it free of charge. Quite possibly the best company for support EVER.
It is the heaviest hopper on the market, but if you are that big of a weenie...
Being the fastest loader also means that it feeds the balls with more force than any other hopper. Here's the problem...it may push the balls past your ball detents if your detents are weak. The Eclipse Fangz detents are worthless if you have a Halo B! It will also push past the PTP side detent. We have had it push past autococker detents, automag barrel detents, Pirahna detents...it just pushes really hard. That seems to be the biggest problem.
Takes 6 AA batteries...thus the weight problem. The batteries also don't last as long as 2 9v in a revvy so you are replacing more batteries more often. That can be costly.
I haven't shot the Evolution II, so that being said, the Halo B is the best loader on the market. I know it is the fastest! If you chop paint because you outshoot your hopper, then get a Halo. You won't outshoot it...
