Reloader 2 or Halo TSA

Hi, Im looking at getting my first e-hopper and I was wondering which should I get, an Odyssey Halo TSA or an Empire Reloader 2. I have a stock Spyder Pilot by the way. Thanks, anything helps.

For your first electric hoper you cant go wrong with empire reloader, it fast enought for your spyder, and has a really nice magnetic lid. If you are thinking for the future get a used Halo B Empire or VLocity, remeber what ever gun you have you can always carry over your hopper. Unless you plan on getting an A-5

yea, go w/ the empire reloader. the feedneck on the TSA is weak and will crack.

Is the real difference the problem with cracking on the feedneck? Is the Reloader 2 just more durable, but otherwise the same?

I am using it on mechanical cockers, I will not upgrade the boards, and prefer to have some sort of timer/LCD. Based on this, the frontman LCD is the winner.... (unless I attach my VL talking timer to the Reloader 2)

niether, the TSAs really are horrible in terms of breaking and frying, and the reloaders are just ugly.

Go with a used egg on PBN for the money, or a VL tripod or revvy.

I was thinking about that.... the force fed systems are just overkill and I already have my old skool 9V VL2000.

I was hoping to get a sound activated loader to avoid the occasional lag with IR-activated loaders (which agitate only after there is no ball to drop into the chamber).

I say get the empire reloader II, I love empire gear and I use an Empire Reloader B. My old team mate had an empire realoader II and it kept up w/ him fine. The halo TSA's are just..crappy.

I am not really down with the look of the eggs. Plus, aren't the Reloader 2's lighter?
