Tilt Sensing - the agitator always pulls the balls up towards the feed hole. If you tilt it the right it spins counter-clockwise. If you tilt to the left it spins clockwise. Low frontal profile with 180 ball capacity Sound Activation
The Odyssey HALO TSA LED Frontman is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Grav fed hoppers, shot an ANS GX-E autococker that had a Halo B on it.
sold my t.e.s., getting a shocker w/ vision b4 May 05`
currently using my old spyder shutter
Push a button to turn it on, push and hold same button to turn it off. Green for Good to Go, Red for "Im turning off". So simple, and easy to use. Feeds a decent rate of 14bps, never chopped with it, never jammed on me before. Only thing I don't like about it, is the instruction guide is for the LCD version of it. PBReview's description is wrong, its not 190, it has 180 ball capasity. Also, it doesn't like those velcro target practice balls. Battery panel tends to be fussy.
Speaking of batteries, If yours isn't working, Check to make sure that the - and + are in the correct spots, I had them put in wrong, I never really used a 9v battery before.
Great hopper, its cheap ($55), doesn't crack nor break when being tossed around. Not over kill feed, but it will hold its own for front players that burst 8-12bps like myself. You don't need a screen telling you information on your hopper, maybe on your marker, but it's a better buy than the LCD version. Its a beast, Buy It.

tippmann 98 custom, GTA double trigger, 32 degrees universal drop forward macroline for easy dis assembly, GTA expansion chamber, starfire bolt, smartpants progressive barrel, halo frontman led hopper(soon to be R/T)
Feeds good amount
Little weak shell
I am about to get an R/t trigger. SO that will be this hoppers last test so far this thing is awesome. I love it. People say "You put a Halo on a tippmann, Dumba$$!" I just keep my mouth shut and shoot the heck outta them. Then they are quiet LOL. Another thing that they say is you spent a waste of good money. But they are wrong. So buy this for your gun even if it is a tippmann. This hopper kept up with my friends Autococker.!‡ˇ
Great customer service
Good feed rate
weak feed neck (customer Service helps that)
I have used most electronic hoppers out there and i am really impressed with odysseys work. Mags are a a little heavier than most guns and being a front player i wanted something smaller and lighter than the rest. This hopper fitted my bill. It has a decent feed rate that will suit most players. Electro spyders and mechanical guns should not have any problem with out running it. I broke my feed neck on the Field and i sent it back to odyssey, withing like 3 days it got back to me with an all new shell, and its still running great.
This is an excellent hopper for any player and should not be overlooked. They are more consistent and quiet then view loaders. Their great customer service really puts them over the top though. I am going to give this hopper a nine because of the feed neck, but i play real hard with my gear so it is to be expected.
Edit-> Year warranty wore out and it sits without a feedneck after dieing for the 5th time. Halo is a great company to work with and i enjoyed their product. Currently bought a broken Halo B and bringing it back to life, i look foward to working with another Halo.

Tip 98c with R/T, 12" Teardrop, Halo TSA Frontman laoder
Auto sensing works well
Easy to take apart and clean
Concerned about shell durability - mainly neck
Bought this to go on my 98c R/T. I was told buy one guy that it was complete overkill to put it on my 98, another told me that I would need a Halo (at minimum) to effectively use the R/T. Well, I used it today, approx 2000 rounds. No problems at all. I forgot to turn it on at first and broke several balls, then once I turned it on I could not believe how fast the R/T was shooting.
The only thing that concerns me is the feeder neck tube. It, like the entire shell, is made of a plastic that feels like it may break with a small bump. I am an aggressive player (dives, slides, etc) and never once had a problem.
If you can get it for less than 60 bucks I say it's worth it. The auto sensing feature is awesome so no turning on and off and no wasting batteries. Would give it a 10 if the shell seemed a little stronger.
