This is how the Halo should have been made stock. I had nothing but trouble with the eyes in my V35 Halos and switched to the B2, and have had 0 issues with feeding or jams.

The level of programability is awesome, the sound activation is great.

The down sides: cheap back plate (typical to halo loaders)
High price for the original MSRP of the kit and loader.

Better to look for a used already upgraded B2 loader or a factory b2 loader than buy the upgrade at this point.

Pros: More settings, increased battery life
Cons: See review
Pros:

- More settings
6 speed settings and 6 sound settings allows for more precise tuning. You can tailor the board to fit your marker's specific sound signature, and depending on the situation, you can set the speed accordingly. Say you're playing in a tournament where the rate of fire is capped at 12.5. You don't necessarily need your loader to feed 20+bps, so you can set the speed lower and extend your battery life. Conversely, if you're playing on uncapped semi, you can increase the speed setting to ensure that you always have a ball ready to fire.

- Increased battery life
The B2 Board has better battery efficiency versus the stock Reloader B board. As mentioned in the previous section, the added settings likely contribute to the better battery life.

Cons:

- Backplate durability
The area around the power button wears rather quickly. It doesn't take too long before the button and board become exposed.
