He did not go to Tippmann. Anyone who says otherwise is just making that up.

Is this pretty close?

If i'm not mistaken they were selling the Odyssey Halo's and then they came out with the reloader B and were paying royalties on them. I believe the first force feed system that simon really designed FOR KEE was in the magna with the magnetic drive cone. I think he did the Warp feed as well for AGD

I'm probably all wrong with that though.

EMPIRE didn't do or make anything as they were/are just a brand name. National paintball supply sold other companies products like timmy's. they also had some lower end markers with the NPS brand. And had the empire brand with soft goods and that moved into some hard goods like the empire reloader (sound activated revvy), etc.

Pretty sure the halo is his design.

If so it would have been before he was at national. They paid royalties on it when they released the reloaded b.

Lets not forget Simon worked with ADGE (John Sosta) back in the days when he had his independent CAD/CAM company.He did the design and wrote the machine code to manufacture the C&C Xmag, which most of you might know where the invert mini's/axe designs came from..

The Halo was designed and built by Odyssey engineering from Texas. Simon filed a petent on a force feed loader just a few months before Odyssey did. Simon was able to take the Halo once he got to Kee and meld it into the other loaders you have seen after it.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
