It is definetly heavier than my revvies, but the weight isnt much of an issue. It is DEFINETLY more bulky then the revvies though. With a highrise, it wouldnt even be worth using in my oppinion. If you have a HALO B a lowrise will do plenty good. You will never skip a shot again.

weight shouldnt really affect it, you just have to get used to the weight. and yes, the halo B would work fine with a low rise. it'll be fast enough

Well you're pretty weak if Halo B is too heavy for you.

With that said, it won't slow you down with a low-rise or skip cuz its got spring pressure pushing the balls into the breech, so blowback wont be a problem.

Have to agree and I've had it feed when completely upside down for 2-3 shots when trying to clear a barrel break.

I've never noticed the extra weight on the field only when trying to compare the weight between hoppers.

I have felt the weight difference on my revenge LE. With a really light gun, you can feel it. I also think it sits a lot higher than a revolution.

Not if your not clumsy with your hopper. If you really good at playing tight, then no.

If you want a side by side comparison of the sizes, go to Warpig. When they reviewed the origional HALO, they took pics of it next to the other hoppers that are out.

Dude, watch this video clip.

If you don't buy a Halo B after this, you need psychiatric help.
