The Halo loader was revolutionary when it came out. The industry had never seen anything like it, and it was so influential that pb guns on the market succeeded or failed based on their ability to handle it. The primary weakness of the Halo is its shell, which tends to crack around the edges and fall apart over time. They are also heavier than most loaders, although this can be tamed some by using lightweight lithium AA's over standard alkaline. Finally they are on the tall side. Those issues aside, used ones are a great value if their shell is in good shape. The principles of the loader haven't really been beaten by anything else, and all the high end loaders today have the same layout at the Halo but focus on the weight, durability and height.

The halo v35 was my first electic hopper allthough it got the job done it was on the heavy side .Im looking in to getting a rotor so this will be my backup hopper.If you have the extra cash i would suggest the rotor over the halo v35. Another con about the halo is power on and off it sometimes is a hassle it will send you into programing mode when your trying to turn it off. But all in all its a pretty good hopper not bad for someone just getting into paintball.

Pros: fast, reliable, feels great on gun
Cons: can't tell if it's on without pressing the button
This hopper is amazing for the beginner getting into speedball. It can keep up with the firing rate of any tournament (PSP, NXL, Millennium), hold's a good amount of paint (nearly 200 rounds), has a large variety of upgrades available, and more. For the person getting into speedball, you can pick one of these up used for under $50 and be set. I have a few gripes though. Firstly, you can't tell if the hopper is on or not when it has paint in it on your gun unless you press the power button. This can be really annoying if you forget to check at the beginning of a game, and then you realize that you haven't turned the hopper on, and you have to wait 5 seconds for the thing to turn on. Also, cleaning the Halo B can be really annoying, having to take out all the body screws to just open it up. And, the Halo B is a battery hog. All in all, if you're looking at getting into speedball and getting a Halo B used, its amazing and you should absolutely purchase it. But, for the price of this hopper new, you may as well get a used Z2 or rotor.

I love Halos because they almost never have problems. Rip drives do break pretty easy and they can be heavy with the amount of batteries, but they hardly ever jam and are simple to use. I will probably switch to a Rotor soon because they are just on a different level, but Halos are cheaper and a little more reliable from what I have experienced.

I purchased the Halo V35 from Pev's Paintball, in Rockville Maryland, in addition to a Shocker SFT. The Halo, at the time, was the fastest loader on the market, and the V35 board made it that much more quick. The board is simple enough once you know how to use it, one blink being the slowest speed setting, six blinks being the fastest speed setting. The faster the feed rate, the faster the batteries would drain. On numerous occasions I found it hard to tell if the loader was actually on, and what setting it was on. The loader was slightly on the heavy side with all 6 batteries inside, and the wires had a tendency to pinch together after accessing the battery tray. On my first day of play, I encountered my first problem with the loader. Apparently, Odyssey outfited the newer versions of the Halo with a magnetic lid. The lid was held together by cheap glue, which eventually proved to be no match for the strong magents. The lid would open, but the magents would stay stuck on the body. The first day of play, I had to use a sticker to keep the lid closed. This was quickly fixed the next day by a stronger glue, however, for $135, I did not expect to have these types of issues. The Halo gave me few problems after this, until I broke a ball in the loader, and instantly, the Halo became a paint blender. I had to completely disassemble the loader to clean out what I would not reach with a couple paper towels and a battle swab. Disassembly was easy enough, however, to this day, I can not figure out how to put the thing back together. I have consulted the owner's manual, and the website, however, to no luck! In summary, the Halo V35 is good at what it does, however, is also a complex operation. If you are going to be throwing down your cash, I would recommend a different loader, such as the Viewloader Velocity. After getting so frustrated with the loader, I threw down another 130 to join the Velocity camp, and am a much happier customer!

Pros: Fast, upgradeable
Cons: Jam code, assembly/disassembly
Pros -

Drive Cone - With the problems of drive cone tab braking, Kee/Empire hit the lab and came out with the S4 Drive cone, made from impact plastic like that on your car had a reinforced drive cone tap and spring cup tab. It also had a contoured paddle so that it cups the paint making that drive con softer on paint as well. So if you leave the stock drive cone in, it is not going to brake on you any time soon, I've used the same one since they came out almost 3 years ago and no problems.

But the older ones still have the clear drive cone that still had a problem with tabs braking but the newer ones come with a gray S4 drive cone.

Fast - The V35 on this board stands for it's ability to go 35 balls per second. But in setting 6 with 9.6v of battery going to the board/motor, you'll be that 35 for a quick burst for a fraction of a second at the best. It is defentaly faster then the normal Halo Z board. You'll not need a speed higher then setting 4. In this speed setting it will be as fast as the speed setting 6 but with out the pop-corning, so it would lead to a fast as reliable hopper.

Upgradeable - There is a TON of stuff out for the Halo and Reloader B's. Some but not all of these are...

speed feeds, shells, boards, eyes, backplates, drive cones, Clutch kits, anti-jam springs, rip wheels, and much more.

Cons -

Assembly/Disassembly - Like the other reviews I did of the Reloaders it'd be the same thing since the main difference between the 2 loaders is the board and eyes everything else is the same. If you're new to the loader it can be a hassle to assemble the loader and disassemble it. But don't let that get you down or turn you away from this loader. With a little work and being careful you'll get the hang of it and it'll take a short amount of time. The only thing that can be detrimental to this loader is the button braking. It is very hard to replace the button on the boards if it does brake. If you have any questions or need help feel free to IM/PM me or go to http://www.paintballsolutions.com

Jam Code - This in my eyes is the single biggest reason to not get this loader. I know they have many ups but the con of this is that you need to turn it off and on again. It also is given if your batteries are low, eyes are dirty, motor is dieing and everything thing wrong slightly with the loader.
