35 bps is a worthless reason to buy a loader. Can you really shoot that fast? How many fields will actually allow you to shoot uncapped ramping, and how many boards will let you? Then, how many of you can afford the paint to shoot at that speed? Yeah, it's a gimmick (although it works at advertised speeds) to trick people into thinking they need it.

Same for anything over 20 bps. I say get what you like and is reliable as well as cheap. Either the Halo or the Reloader B is going to work great for you - same as the vlocity, but they ALL have features that are useless. I won't change from a Reloader B until I absolutely can't use it anymore....then I may just pick another one up!

Vike i wasnt wanting to buy it cause it feeds 35bps but i just wanna know what the guys think about these loaders, my main concern on the loaders was the eye activation vs sound activation. would i encounter more probs with the halo over the reloader b with the eyes not picking up dark shelled paint or is that just a scarce occurence?? Cause im just imagining i get a halo and im using brittle paint and it doesnt pick it up and WHAM! PAINT SMOOTHIE!

Oh, I understand that. I just brought it up because that seems to be the selling point to a lot of people on forums. I wasn't meaning to imply that was why you were looking at them.

In regards to your last post, that's really the only difference between the two. There are two schools of thought here...

1. There were rumors (and I say rumors, because I have NEVER found a gun my Reloader didn't work on - and my loader is a ho - been on a lot of different guns!) that say there are some guns the Reloader B won't work on because they're too quiet. I've heard there are some Angels, Shockers, DMs and such that aren't Reloader friedly. Again, I feel that's just a rumor because I've actually used my loader and several different models of these very same guns with no issues, and the loader itself isn't entirely SOUND activated - it's more like vibration activated. However, this could be an issue with some so we'll leave it like that. However, if you have a gun that this isn't an issue - it will feed constantly, even with broken paint in the loader so you can keep shooting during a game.

2. In a Halo with the eye activation - if you should happen to be playing with paint that has a thick fill, have paint break in the loader, then that fill could coat the feed tube and the eyes would stop functioning properly. Or, it's also possible to be using dark shelled paint and the eyes wouldn't see the paint, causing a malfunction. Although, I hear with the aftermarket board, that's not so much an issue anymore.

Assuming both guns are equal (V35 and Stock B2 boards, both have RIP, both have the same battery capacity) in my personal opinion, given the above listed conditions, I'd go with the Reloader because it's more a possiblity for eyes in a Halo to stop working than the vibration sensor in the Reloader.

Again, that's my opinion, and there are going to be those that will disagree, just like there are those that are going to start listing the Vlocity, Pulse, Magna, and the other loaders out there.
