Sweet, so I got my Halo B hopper today. I went to check it out. :lol: WOW! It sticks up like 90,000 feet above my gun. Not to mention it hardly fit in that adapter anyways. Look at how TALL it is!!

So.........what is a feedneck that you guys recommend? I have looked around but there are so many options. I would much appreciate some direction. Thanks! :D

I have a Hybrid low-rise and love it. Here is a pic

you can cut the bottom of the Halo neck a little so its sits flush, I didn't cause i also have an Ion and they are not the same height.

I would also change it quick, cause the plastic feedneck adapters are known to come loose or break. I would hate for you to lose your brandy new Halo on the field.

Or if the Hybrid is not quite low enoguh for your liking.... The CCM's are also very nice and they are only about 30 bucks... You can find them on paintballgear.com under the Spyder Upgrade section.. They are really nice, my Little bro has one on his Spyder TL-X and it works great..

So what does the With Holes/With No Holes mean?

You don't mention what marker you have but if you look here (http://www.sundragonpps.com/catalog/item/1535699/1695058.htm) there's a list of markers for the tabbed necks. If yours isn't on that list, chances are you'll need the one with holes -

It's with ears or, in some terms, "no holes"; it's a Pilot.

Oh well I posted a picture of the gun which shows its a Pilot. Thanks though for the link.

six of one half dozen of the other!!!

Personal preference here.... Technically once you put your hopper on for the game you should not need to take it off... I like the clamp type feednecks so you can take the hopper off easier to clean a break etc.... my .02

I have the same problem with my MR2. I have the Empire Reloader B and it sits like a tower on my gun. Does anyone know if there is a quality 45 degree elbow out there?

I've looked every where and found nothing but the same cheap plastic ones. The only good ones are for the verticle feeds.

there are no clamping feednecks for side feed guns. ive used a APP atomic elbow (http://www.paintballgi.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=815) for 3 years and it still has not broken.

Thanks. I would think by now someone would have made one but I guess not. I will definitely try the APP elbow, but I have a question.

How does it secure to the gun and the hopper? I don't see anthing to tighten the grip.

the holes are tapered so it gets tighter the further in you push the elbow
