View Full Version : First ever Pulse'd/Halo

09-03-2007, 09:44 PM
Well guys call me crazy but I did it, first ever (as far as I know) pulo or maybe halse, :thinking: ah screw it I'll come up with a good name later. Important thing is that it works great. All the benefits of the pulse in the rugid and most importantly replaceable shell of the halo b, combined with the excellent electronics of the pulse. Sync'd mode is sick, far faster than any halo board on the market, and as soon as predator gets around to releasing the cheetah v10 board we'll see about that as well. The pulse elctronics combined w/the rip drive provides crazy fast consistant feed-rates, even with reballs, which had always given my angry halo fits before. Plus I don't have to worry about the feedneck failing on me again, if I happen to break my suicide shell (which is very unlikely) I can actually buy another one, and not have to deal with the b.s. of sending my entire loader in for yet another shell and waiting 3 to 4 weeks for it to get back. Here are some pic's of the final product, looks like a regular halo w/the exception of the motor reverse button and black pulse board. http://i117.photobucket.com/albums/o48/commwarrior70/Halse1.jpg
video soon to follow.
Now yeah I know, WTF right, why take 2 good loaders and make one really good loader. Well reason 1; unless I am mistaken DXS's suit is not going to be settled anytime soon and if the rumors are true they are holding all pulse's sent back for repair, which means if you break a shell, etc. your SOL.
Reason 2; I love the RF sync mode and believe it is the best thing to hit paintball in a long time. And reason 3; What the Hell why not!!!

I thought about something like that a while back but didnt give it much thought after. Nice Job!! How long did it take you?

Here's a quick vid on my A1 with reballs...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RUHOVwT-7U
will get a vid with paint as soon as I can.
Took about 3 hours to do once I decided on where to place everything.

Hmmm.......I was looking to buy another halo if I did would u do th mod for me? How much would it cost? pm me

So the pulse board is running the stock halo parts or are the pulse internals in the shell also?

That depends on what you have on hand, unfortunately you can't buy the pulse components individually so you would have to gut a pulse for the speed control, motor reverse, main boards, motor and wiring harness, which if you have a pulse with a busted shell/feedneck that's not really a problem. All you need from the Halo is the shells and the raceway cup. The drivetrain (both gear drive sprockets, belt, motor) are pretty much identical, and I didn't try the pulse's cone on the halo's rip shaft, but will do that tonight over a couple of beers just to see if it works as well. Going to try and get some more pics posted tonight of the internals as well.

Actually used all of the pulses electronics with the halo's mechanics. I looked at the drive sprockets to see if there was a difference b/t the shocktech's kit that was in my halo vs. the pulse's and as far as I could tell they were identical so I stuck with the halo's sprockets.

Well guys yet again I am not as smart as I thought I was. Shortly after posting this on PBN (I know how could I) I was notified that I was one month too late to honestly claim "The first-ever" Pulsed Halo. That's cool it still was absolutely worth doing...Anyways here's some more stuff...
Here is a pic with the left half of the shell off, you can see where I opened up the battery compartment a little, the speed control board and the white blur on the left is the power cable, I used a male connector (taken from a wall charger I had laying around unused) so that I didn't have to alter the stock pulse's female power connector plug...and the wires that I extended, little more than neccessary but its better to have too much than not enough.
I also put a quick video together showing the sync'd op demo'n the operation with the rip.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egOJCrQh1IU I don't want to hear any flames, I know I'm old, with a receeding hairline and generally lame so keep it to yourself ;)

I'll try and through together a detailed how-to with pics, maybe even a video, as well as a vid shooting a hopper full of paint as soon as I get a chance.

LAME!!!!!!!! and wow your really old and your hairline is receeding.

lol j/k buddy:)

I wouldn't mind giving this a try to test it out but I need two loaders since one is usually on loan. I am interested to see a video with real paint.

couple more pic's with the rightside shell off...http://i117.photobucket.com/albums/o48/commwarrior70/HPIM2993.jpg
spent most of the day looking for the connector and socket for the 4 pin wiring harness online, found the connector that goes to the main board np but have had little luck find the one on the speedcontrol board, seeing as its the same socket that goes on a wide range of marker control boards (spyder, scenario dreams, etc.) I should be able to track it down eventually, when I finally find a good source for them I'll post the store link and that way this hydred can be done without any alterations to the pulse components.

wow you are "older" cool "older" people that paintball are the shyte :p nice halse.

Played first day with the Pulse'd Halo and all I can say is Hell YEAH!!! If you have a Pulse and Halo (or can get your hands on one) you HAVE to do this mod. I usually reserve playing to aggresive with my pulse because I have no faith in the pulse's feedneck being able hold up to rough play but the Hybrid suicide shell makes that no longer an issue, I was diving into the snake, snap shooting and generally doing my best to see if it could hold up and of course it did.

watch the pigtv episode of the pulse. some guy from joy dividion drives a nail w/ the pulse shell, i believe its is tougher than a halo.

oh and very nice work!

The shell might be tougher but the feednecks suck. I am just glad mine hasn't broke yet.

09-10-2007, 01:06 PM
VS is right, the shells are fairly strong, and yep I saw all the videos. The feedneck and the tabs on the motor tray are the shells weak points, other than that its a great loader, but those 2 downsides have a pretty significant impact.

Finally got around to putting a vid w/paint, Now my old A$$ doesn't walk the trigger like it used to, so believe me any gaps in the stream had nothing to do w/ the loader or my A1, hell why do you think I bought an A1 in the first palce:evilgrin: ...anyways, hard ramp, and just in case anyone is curious, used full Dye locklids, roughly 160 balls per load, there ya go...
