Halo shells scratch easily?

I used mine once in a tourney and its all scratched up, they're little though, but all over it. The tourney was played on a sand hyperball field, but i didn't do any superman dives or get it into the sand too much. Has anyone else experienced this?

Nope. I have seen some minor scratching, but nothing too crazy.

Well it's not like it got droped off a cliff, but you can deffinatly see the scratches in there. Oh well, it doesn't effect performance, and it's not in for a beauty contest, so I guess it's fine. Just wondered if all of them were like this or not.

You could cover it....

You could put a cover on it to protect the hopper...

I used my old 9V neoprene hopper cover, and it fit just great. The only modification you must do is cut an opening in the back of the cover in order to access the button and light.

But, it looks nice, and protects well.

I thought hopper covers weren't tourney legal? Someone inform me please.

In that case, covering the hopper is not the way to go.

I don't know if they're tourney legal or not (being that I'm a rec-baller). But, now that I think about it, I have yet to see a tourney guy with a hopper cover.

My question is: why wouldn't they be tourney legal? Why do they ban covers?

They're made out of neoprene, which is like a soft rubber, which can make pb's bounce off the hopper alot easier. You might have a mouse pad made out of neoprene.

I had a feeling that was the reason. I didn't know that it was critical enough for them to ban hopper covers entirely.

Interesting to know.
