Vlocity uses eyes....sound works great if you're gun isn't super super quiet, with eyes if you wait to reload until you are completely out of paint your cone will constantly spin and possibly break a ball when you reload (Halos).

Like he said, the Halo will pretty much spin until it senses a ball. With the trend of putting more power in the hoppers, I've seen a few guys dump paint into a spinning Halo and the paint literally get blended.

I like my ReloaderB just because I don't have to worry about eyes. Nothing against Halo's at all.

I love the Cheetah board for my Halos. But honestly I'd rather have a Reloader B. On my DM6 it's perfect but my sponsers would rather me shoot a halo. I know I could just put halo shells on and use the emp. board but what ever they both work awesomely.

Both are very strong and most markers won't have a problem with sound. But eyes could go bad. But they are also a little more sacure I guess you'd say since they won't feed if you are yelling bunkers or trying to dump a pod in like some sound hoppers do.

So both are very strong and have major strengths with a little bit of weakness.

You won't have to worry with an Egg. It isn't force fed, and the paddles are softer. When I was talking about the blending, it was with a Halo, NiMH batts, and a double wound cone.

I worked there for like 3.5 years. I left about 3 months ago. Pretty tall, long black hair, worked the front most of the time.

i have both a cheetah'd halo and a reloader b. i use the cheetah more cause its lighter (i put a boost rechargeable in it cause it eats batteries) and its fast, plus i like the lights

but the reloader b is my never failed me yet backup. i must say that i've only broken 1 ball in my cheetah and that was 3 month old domination that was really really brittle. before i got the cheetah board, i used to blend all the time with the zcode board.

*edit* from what i've (and a bunch of friends) found is that the reloader b feeds more consistently at higher speeds than a regular halo board. however, i'm pretty sure this is due to different sensor logic.

Do you bother to read the manual? It has a dual set of eyes. One normal set to see weather there is a ball in the breech, and a outter set to dectect the feed rate ( see the gaps of the edges of the ball). This eye setup is very important to the velocity since it can now know when to put more or less force on the cone depending on what the eyes tell it.
