Halo B with rip drive.

I like many other Halo owners, love their Halos. I just love to look at its nice sleek and smooth looking body. That isn't the only good thing about it though. There is no doubt about it, that the Halo is fast. I bought the Halo so I could keep up with my R/T. No doubt about it, it did what it was supposed to do. I forked over around $150 including tax because it came out new not to long before I bought it. Now the price has gone down a tad. Well, the Halo B feeds +20 balls per second. It is better and faster than the first Halo which used gears. The Halo B uses a belt drive system. That means there aren't all theses gears under the cone that mave, it is just a belt. The Halo B was truly a work of art. It has eyes that sensor movement and not gaps to make sure your marker never goes hungry. It has interchangeable parts so you can upgrade for new products that come out. Right now I have a rip drive on my Halo. Some may wonder what a rip drive is, well, I will tell you. It is a little knob that is put under the drive cone and under the shell of the Halo. The rip drive allows you to wind up the spring loaded drive cone. Some may wonder why would you need to wind it up. Well, what would you do if your batteries were to just die on the field or the belt were to snap, you would wind up the drive cone with your rip drive. THere is a product I want to buy for my Halo and that is the Victory board. The victory board allows you to change the speed to 6 different speeds. It allows you to go from 17 bps to 35 bps.
Specs on Halo B:
polycarbonate shell
true force feed (this is not an adgitator hopper, it actually pushes the balls into the marker)
Low battery indicator
1 hour auto-off
Upgradeable software
Tactile feedback power button
Auto prime
Main drive ball bearings
Spring loaded feed cone(burst rates of 51 bps)
Ultr quiet belt drive
Computer controlled
20+bps
it also contains a 6AA battery pack with a little work can be switched to 2 9 volt batteries.
9.5/10 because it is a little heavy

Nice. The only way it would be better is if there were pictures. Cheers

I know. I spend all my money on paintball and nothing on digital cameras. I have one digital camera, but we can't find the wire to hook up to the computer, maybe I will need to go to a store to try to find a new cord. Also the camera was like $20

I perfer my Reloader B.

A GREAT mod to do to a halo or reloader is the 9v mod. It replaces the battery pack with two 9v batterys. I just did it to my reloader today.

Not yet. I hope to get one soon. The 20+bps is a little fast for my custom pro E.

You're right. I didnt take into account what you'd be shooting with.
