super fast , doesnt chop paint, cool looking , not too expensive and you never dry fire
Not as good as Halo B( 22bps) , thats bout it
First of all I love this hopper it keeps up with my gun and looks cool In my opinion the VL evolution 2 doesn't compare to this hopper , Even though it may not be faster its overall package is realy better it looks cool Plus smaller in size and hold sam amount of paint .
I reccomend the HALO tsa because it is perrty cheap for if your a rookie and relible if your a pro. I give it a 10 out of 10
holds 220 rounds, huge differencet when you're playing the back
mic went out on me in the middle of a game for no reason
I enjoyed about 6 months with my tsa.......but than t he mic went out and it stoped working. It will still spin in both directions when I push the button on the back...but it doesn't do anything when I play. I've tried taking it apart, tested it with my multimeter, and anything else I could think of......and nothing.....it's trash now, unless I want to but a whole new board....yah....F that
My reloader might only spin in one direction........but at least it's lasted me two years....not 6 months!
Nitro Duck 47/3000
Phat Barrel Kit (7 Piece)
32 Degrees Flame Drop in Red
Tilt thing is cool
Feeds faster than VL 200
It breaks a lot.
Looks really stupid.
I was using this product and on my third day using it, a teamate shot me from behind and hit the back of my hopper. We always chrono in, so we weren't running hot. It hasn't turned on since. Odessy's lines are always busy, so I don't know if I should send it in or what. Anyways I took it home and cleaned it only to find that the microchip is fried. The protector on it is all goofed up and it won't turn on even after replacing the battries. My friend also had a problem with his shell: The feedneck broke off.
I highly disrecomend this product. It is too fragile for paintball. I do like the Empire Reloader much better.
Buy it if you want to replace it / send it in all the time. I give it a two because it feeds paintballs.
FAST!! cheap made by a trustworthy company (not brasseagle,veiwloader)
scrackes easly oh ya it the size of a FOOTBALL!!!!!!!
Ok lets see. . .
Reaction time- Its very good because its sound activated so it turns evey shot
Speed- Its fast but i can still out shoot it on my Avant on full-auto
Size- It is literally a football its HUGE!
Look- Its very cool looking with the little halo thingys on it and such
Profile- its nice on the front but the side is not so bad
avoid Veiw loader ant all coasts that means no REvys or brass eagle crap
get this and u will be killing ur buddys at the feild all day long.
Im giving it a 9 cuz there is room for inprovment like the speed im a trigger happy person so it will do good for all the sane people playing.

Durable,uhhh not like anything else that stands out
If you can shoot really fast it will be too slow for you
I think this is a pretty good loader..compared to most loaders it is slow though only going at 14 bps, but until I can shoot that fast it is fine with me, Its very durable, Keep taking a number of dead on hits and it has ceased to break or crack, pointed design with deflect some balls, Kinda sucks that paint gets in the shell making it hard to clean out unless you take the shell off. Made kinda small for some guns so get a Dye Hopper Spacer they have it in the drop foward section under Throttle Air Systems on the the Dye website. Uh it eats up batteries pretty quick because of the sound activation thingy...kinda gets annoying, but its still cool. DONT GET THE LCD, ur batterie will like last you less than a day. I also suggest getting a backman whether you are a frontman or not....cuz it holds more balls and I dont see any disadvantages to that. Oh yeah almost forgot....the lid is like flat so you dont have the lean your gun to load balls into the hopper u just keep it level, which is really great for reloading during play.
Altogether is product is very good...could be better if Halo spent the time to make some actual upgrades for it, but oh well, You take wut you can get.

-holds about 225 balls
-feeds fast enough for slower guns (Spyders, E-Spyders, Mech cockers)
-the feed tube cracked but it still fits (although I think Oddesy/Halo/OGI/ will replace the shells if it cracks)
-the feed tube was too skinny to fit but I solved that with some tape, but I would suggest using the Dye spacers
This is definently better than a revvy, but this won't feed higher end guns. For my Spyder it works just fine.
For high end, get an Egg or a Halo B
Tricked Out 03 Black Magic, Dye Boomstick TI, Nitro...
It's hard for me to say the product has a strength when its inoperable.
Odyssey’s lack of product support (brad new item).
Here is my issue. I picked up a brand new HALO TSA LED. I pop some batteries in it, throw in some paint and hit the cron and I can’t get my gun to fire consistently! I thought the timing on my cocker was way off (odd), so I re-timed it, put the hopper back on, same thing. As this point I’m confused. I put the hopper on a Pro/Carb, Timmy, and Brass Eagle pump gun. Same thing! The TSA never spins. The light is on (and blinks as it should), and I’ve tried three sets of batteries but nothing. I called Tech Support. After about 15 calls to their “automated system” I finaly get a real live person! The guy was no help at all. Maybe if the guy said “uuuuhhhhh” one more time maybe it would have been helpful (sarcasm). Tech support said to ship it in to them (Texas) at my cost, they would either fix it or send me a new hopper. They refused to play shipping or arrange an exchange with a local store (it might cost them *gasp* money to do that). Before this is over this brand new HALO TSA LED is going to cost me well over the retail price. This is the last odyssey product I’ll buy. I understand that defects happen. However, fix them and fix them at the manufactures cost, not the consumers. The only thing I’ve done wrong is buy what should have been a nice product from a lousy company. Steer clear of Odyssey. If you have any kind of problem and have to deal with support, I wish you better luck that I’ve had.
What might have been a decent product is overshadowed by extremely poor support. Pick another brand.

Check it speedy drop
Pure energy 47/3000
Bob Long torpedo reg
Holds a ton of paintballs
Gets scrachted and dirty easy
All I can say is that I love this hopper. It is super fast and feeds what I need it to, low profile, holds about 230 paintballs, sound activated, and it looks cool. The only bad thing is, is that it gets scratched easy and gets really dirty. My sticker fell off of mine. But overall it is a great hopper and it rocks. I like it alot.
I love this hopper but when I get my new gun I am going for the evo 2 with z board. For now the tsa works for my gun. Perfect 10, but what would you expect from a halo loader.

it was a very good hopper for the first 2 weeks then i started to notice cracks deep cracks.Ten it completely fell apart (the battery door) and the batterys arnt held to the terminals so the motor would not spin. this loader could be good but it isnt wait till they make a few corrections then it will be good
this is could be a great hopper but it has flaws like in the slection of the plastic it just didnt hold up dont by it get the revvy instead better designed

I purchased the TSA Backman LED. The first thing that i noticed with this hopper is that it is huge. From the side it looks gigantic, but from front it has the same profile as any other hopper. The ball capacity of this hopper is great, i am able to dump a 140rnd pod while i still have 1/4 full, with no spills. i also shoot with my gun sideways alot, so having the tilt sensor, is also nice. Though i'm not sure if it makes all that of a difference. Performance wise, it's about the same as any other agigtating hopper. It can keep up with short bursts, but can be easily out shot with long strings. The lid on this is not the easiest to open but at the same time it doesn't stay on very tightly. Making it kind of hard to load quickly. Also the lid is not spring loaded. Finally, the finish, which is a shiny plastic finish, scratches very easily. I've only had the hopper a few months and it's really scratched up.
EDIT: My hopper has cracked in the back by the batteries. But replacement shells are hard to find. Something to think about before you purchase.
This is a good hopper for those that like to sit and dump paint or play hopper ball. The large capacity, unmatched by any other hopper, allows for more shots between fills. The price is quite high, so if you don't need the extra capacity, other hoppers may be better for you.
