Yes, exactly what Brandon said, the main difference is that the Empire Halo's are sound activated. Each shot activates the Empire Reloader-B and the electro board in turn sends a short, fast pulse to the motor. The regular reflective eye system on Halo Bs seem to spin longer than necessary, especially if the height of the Halo is not aligned properly. Did you know... that a marker's feedneck has an effect on how the Halo feeds paint into the marker? If the low/mid/high rise is a bit too high or too low, then the Halo can get confused and it can possible keep feeding paint eventho paint's already filled the feedneck and is just sitting there? In other words, the Halo can still keep feeding paint eventho the feedneck is already full of paint. When that happens, you gotta either try to lower or raise the Halo a bit. I think the only people who seem to take the time to measure the ball stack properly are the people at Viewloader. Their revvies and eggolutions seem to have better alignment than Halo's! Anyway, when these sound-activated loaders first came out, Super Killer was the first to tell me about it and informed me that these sound-activated Halo's are faster than normal Halo's! Since then, I've been keeping an eye out for this "sound activated" version.
Smellyanus, shells are same as the other Hollabacks
Dyeguy, it works better because it doesn't spin the drive cone longer than necessary and that amount of spin time isn't dependent on proper alignment either.
laysomepaint, I wish it were true with all guns, but that hasn't been the case for me.
pbmatt74, I've tried using both 4 and 6 battery packs, both work great! I'm sticking with 6 Lithium AA's so that I won't have to worry about replacing the batteries as often.
t_mo, an HK Army Sargeant Shay has some awesome upgrades for the Hollabacks. HK Technology is now available for all Halo's! A separate report will be issued in regards to this. Or contact Shay for more info.
Nick, unlike you, most people know better than to use their tongue to check how much power is left in the 6 AA battery pack... because people know that 6 AAs = 10x more amps than a single 9 volt.
Oh hey, thanks Mr. Ben@raceguns.florida.com
