Halo Hopper

Just wanted to post a heads up for everyone that these or not that great.. I saw them in Chicago and watched as Chris Lasoya was destroying BadCompany in the semi finals and his Brand New Halo hopper jammend and he had to stop dead in his tracks poor out the entire hopper unjam it and reload... He was hit some time during the process.. They still won the game and lost only like 2 guys. Would of been better and quicker with out that happening though. He also fired his gun just as fast with a Revolution so the feed rate can be nothing to great...
later,
jcc

A friend was taking the WDP tech tranning when Lasoya came up to him with his Halo, John(my friend) saw how it felt and was shocked at how heavy the thing was. He compared it to an Angel with no barrel/or air system in weight. Lasoya must be hitting the weights more often now that he is shooting one.

I only noticed Lasoya using it one game and I doubt he uses it again unless the Halo company throws down some cash cause just a free hopper wouldn't be enough to make me use one of them.

I'd like to try one. It probably just jammed up because they shoot that super small Imperial. Of course it's heavy, you have to use six AA batteries.

I saw Lasoya use it 2 games and it definitely jammed in the Bad Company game and I think it did also in the finals game agaisnt dynasty (that would explain why as near as I can tell Chris did absolutely nothing until he did his dead man's walk) I think although it doesn't work well now it can be made not to jam and will probably be the next big thing. I was talking about it and ed poorman overheard in the air line and he said it rocked but he was going to let chris use it.

I don't think it's fair to say that lasoya "tore through bad company". From my perspective I think chris wiped about 4 times. I don't cheat, and if that game was played straight I'm not sure avalanche would've won. Bad Company was in their bunkers and all crossed up and rabackoff wasn't getting anything done in the front of the snake. Lasoya jumped into the back of the snake and wiped a little, shot everyone, then played on until the ref pulled him out. It was ***.

He didnt wipe anything from my veiw and i was standing right next the snake... He had a hit on the belt of his pack and that was it and if he supposibly wiped so many hits he could of wiped that one to, but it was still a perfectly fresh hit on his pack that he never touched. Bad company just did nothing that game and got tore apart by clean play...

A guy came to my local field in dallas

and the same thing happened. A minute into the game, after firing about 50 rds through it, it jammed. He pulled out lots of deformed pballs but couldnt get it working again and left. It was also huge. I dont normaly complain about the looks of equipment as long as it works but not only did it not work, it looks like a tumor. The guy said he was the designer of it. He must be pretty embarased. I say get a richochet. The lcd is usefull wheras 16 bps +jamming probs is not. The richochet is actually going to feed pretty much as fast as you can shoot becuase of the way it spins when a ball moves out of it into the breech of your gun.
