Arrow Hopper/Barrel for 05 Speed

I recently bought an 05 speed and was wondering what would be the best hopper for my speed. I pretty much am down to the Halo B and Reloader B but can't decide from there. I wanna stay around $150. Let me know what you think between the two and why. Facts and personal experiences would really help. My main concerns are reliability, low maintanence, and fast. I also don't want to replace the batteries left and right. Also let me know what upgrades for the hoppers would be good. I've heard bad things about rip drives breaking along with cones and heard the v-board was a battery hog. I'm also wanting to know what barrel system would be best for my new speed. This is my first Angel and am wanting to keep the barrel total around $100 or less. Thanks for your feedback. If you've got any more wisdom feel free to share it.

dont get reloaders

Okay, after lurking around pbn and AO and AOG forever, i've read that reloader B's and 05 speeds dont play well together. apparently there is too much tension on the ball stack or somesuch. I have a an eggy2 with a Z board and it works great! No chops ever. also, shoot the stock barrel a while longer, you may find you actually like it, I do. other than than, i'd say like a j&j edge kit, since those stiffi/chipley kits (which i have) shoot no better than any other barrel, and cost quite a bit more.

I vote for Egg2 w/ Z board because of it's complete reliability with this gun. My reloader B didn't work well with my speed at all, even with the reloader b sitting on the lowest setting. Even with everything properly setup on the angel I was still having trouble with the reloader b pushing 1/2 of the next ball into the chamber and getting sliced by the bolt. This didn't happen with the egg and it still fed just fine.

For the barrel, I have to recommend going with a 1 piece CP classic in a .693 bore. It's all you will ever need. If you feel the need to have multiple bores, this barrel only costs $40, comes in 3 sizes and shoots as well or better than ANY other barrel out there. Other than that... try your stock for a while, like PurpleFender said... you might like it just fine.
