WooHoo!! 8bps on a HALO!!

Ok just what the title says. I did a drop test with my brand new halo (brand new batteries and diablo paint) and it was feeding at only 8bps. This was a normal halo. Is this normal? Does it feed better on the gun cause I have not tried it on my gun yet. any suggestions and no I dont have the money to get it upgraded to a halo b because I just spent all my cash on a new gun.

the halo will feed slow on a drop test when there is no pressure on the spring cone... there needs to be a little pressure on the ball to feed faster

I hope so, but I remember hearing drop tests of 18bps plus on normal halos.

Cocker Kid120 you make me sad

Dude, what you want to do is cover up the feed tube a little with a finger when doing a drop test, so paint has to push past your finger to come out. This will put some pressure on the drive cone and cause the HALO to kick into its normal speed. You WILL be impressed.

I agree, but still - 8BPS? Without any pressure on my feed tube, I measured 18.5BPS.

In any case, as C]-[iLDe stated, pressure from your finger / bolt will indeed turn your loader into a speed monster (if it isn't actually broken).

I have the HALO A and it drops at 16 bps with no finger in the way. Sounds like yours needs a visit to the factory dude.

my halo is the same way, and mine feeds about 8 bps on gun too. i chop all the time even when i shoot about 5 balls at a time. i put my friends 12 volt/xboard on my gun and had no problems. im seriously considering selling the halo and buying a 12v/xboard
