Question Halo Issues...?

I am probably going to get an Omen in the very near future, and was wondering about using a Halo on it. I heard that it will push past the Cam feed system, or jam it. I also heard about some way to loosen the tension in the halo. Has anybody succesfully made a halo work on an Omen? Also, is anybody working on metal paddles or anything that might prevent the halo from causing it to jam?

I've used a halo on the omen without any problems... but some folks have had different results. Just to be safe, get an egg2 i hear a new board is coming out that will allow for 19 bps... up from 17 bps. Since a stock omen will only go 15 bps at max, you're safe with an egg2. Another bonus is that the egg2 looks better on the omen anyways.

I have used an Egg II before, but I would rather use a Halo if I can get away with it. I think the Egg is ugly, and the Halo is just higher quality IMO. So back to my original question, anybody else have experience with a halo on the omen?

I had a teamate hold his halo over my omen and feed the balls(in other words it would fit in the feed tube) and the omen would shoot but the cam arms wouldn't push balls into the breech. I don't think he had TE halo b tho. I like my egg better anyways my teammates halo ate batteries like crazy.

i've used a my sexy smoke y-board egg without problems as well, seems to be the best for the omen fer now. i've heard mention in a few post (spartan's dream omen, for instance) about possible metal paddles. thre's also a down side to the metal paddles, as they will not flex asround a jam, or half feed ball, they will just chew it
i'll also be attempting to use my warp on the omen, see if i can modify and adjust it to work. just love being able to shot the gun at any angle, and it's be great to get the hopper off the top of the already very tight, omen.

I had a warp on the omen, but it didn't look right... I had to snake the tube from the left side, under the trigger guard to the right side... yah i could've gone over the top, but i love the clear line of sight down the top too much to occlude it. I think it would work quite well though if you mount the warp on the right side of the omen, but primarily being right handed, I didn't like that setup. So the next best thing I could do to reduce profile was to get an impulse lowrise... oh well.

i'm gonna try and get my ******* freind to make me a custom feed to keep the tube flush, and drop it straight down either side, to keep it tight. opefully when he said he could do it he actually understood what i was telling him ineeded

Yah i'm sure its possible... I thought about just taking a hacksaw to a tall impulse feed... that would've put it flush on to it, but again since i'm right handed the tubing annoyed me, with a leftside setup.
