I might be getting a new hopper and was wondering what you guys like and as to why you do
The Choices:
VLocity JR w/aftermarket chip
Halo B possibly with V35 or Cheetah(sp?)
Empire B or B2

08-27-2007, 05:46 PM
either Vlocity or the Junior.

halo b w/v35, angry or cheetah will keep up with your vs np and if you shop around will be the cheapest out of the bunch. if you want new then imo you`d be better off with the vlocity or jr. w/chip.

Now what is the advantage of having the VLocity JR w/chip over a VLocity. Doesn't the chip make the vl jr select force just like the VLocity so than whats the advantage of getting the vl jr w/chip. I believe the cheetah board makes the Halo select force as well...am I right? What does the Angry board do?

Also Ive heard mixed stories on the Empire B2. What do you guys think about it. I suppose since they cost the same I should get a Pulse over the B2 right?

vlocity all the way its fast has a decent preice for wut ur getting. pretty much inestructable and i beat my stuff basically and theres not a scratch on it. different speeds. needs no home modifications to make it fit in different feednecks such as halos and reloaders need feedneck sanding for most aftermarket and stock feednecks. Ive used every hopper out and its kept up with my angels to autockockers spyders to tippmans.

i choose the reloader b simply because that is all ive used other than the ricochet apache. the reloader IMO is good with it being sound activated but like ive said......... its all ive ever used.

08-29-2007, 03:49 AM
I've used a Halo, a Reloader B, Reloader II, Eggy, Zeggy, and Ricochet. Never used a Velocity, Velocity Jr or Pulse.

My vote goes to a Reloader B/B2 - IMHO it's just a better, tried and true, down to basics loader. All the "extras" these newer loaders have only add to the price - and ugliness - and not the performance, of the loader. Who really needs to have a loader that feeds 40 bps, has 12 different speeds? The ONLY thing I can think that would make them better is the variable pressure on the stack, but noone really knows what the best pressure is anyways.

thanks guys....I dont think I'll go with the Halo B UNLESS it has the angry or Cheetah board in it because a teammate has one and the eyes mess up easy. I think I'll probably go with the Empire Reloader B2 and then if I upgrade my board or maybe get a Bob Long 2k2'd Classic that I might get I'll be set. Oh yeah...what excatly does the angry board do?

I'm not sure though if I want a Reloader B2
or a Draxxus Pulse

Thanks for the help

Can you even get a pulse now? I thought there was a freeze on selling those...

08-29-2007, 09:07 AM
yeah you cant get them from proshops but you can buy them of ebay and people buy alot and then sell BNIB ones

08-30-2007, 10:05 AM
Well I change my mind alot...if you cant already tell so I've narrowed it down to 3 choices

An Angry Halo

A Cheetah Halo

or a VLocity..possibly with Gangstar

You can only get pulses from distributors that had them in stock before the suit and they can only sell those. DXS cannot produce anymore pulses until the suit is settled, and i dont know how true this is (i question the source) but supposedly dxs is holding all pulses that are being sent in for repair. I am working on a halo/pulse (pulse electronics in halo body) and so far everything looks real promising. My pulses feedneck has a crack in it again and so I know its just a matter of time before it goes.

THE order:
VL Jr. + Gangstar
Pulse + RF
Empire Magna + RF
VL w/ any other chip
Reloader B2
VL Jr.
Reloader B
Halo B w/v35
Halo B

AND DXS had to recall all distributed units. So any held units F/s can be claimed by the proshop owner as theirs but should be sold as used, rather than new, since new would link them to being dealt from Draxxus through a dealer.

vlocity with a gangster chip is superior to a regular vlocity and in some cases cheaper if you get good deal on the seperate parts

vlocitys are softer on paint than halos
