Default Empire Or Halo

Hey Guys, im stuck between these two hoppers, the Realoader b2 or the V35 Halo, could anyone give me pros and cons so i can make an educated decision on which one to buy? I can get them both for the same price so thats not an issue.

Thanks in advance

Reloader B (B2):

* Uses "sound" but it's actually more of a vibration sensing mechanism to feed paint into your gun. Feeds even if paint is broken in loader.
* Reloader B has 3 speed settings and the B2 has 6, I believe.
* The B2 has a setting to adjust the pressure on the stack as well, but the B doesn't.
* The B2 has instant on, but the B doesn't.
* Reloader B comes stock with RIP installed.
* Can use either Empire or Halo Shells as replacements.

V35 Halo:

* Uses eyes instead of ears. Might not see darker shelled paint. If the eyes get covered in paint, it will stop feeding until it's cleared.
* Victory board installed.
* RIP isn't usually installed.
* Uses Halo or Empire shells.

Personally, I prefer my Empire B over the Halo. Unless you tell us more about the Halo, we have to assume that the only upgrade it has is the V35 board. For the same price, the Reloader is a better buy.

The Halo comes with Rip installed as well, and the guy at the shop said if i want a harness for 2 9volts he'll do one for either hopper free of charge,

Could you tell me what the feed rates on both hoppers are??

VLocity. I've used the Halo B in the past but never the Empire. The VLocity, way out performs the Halo B and since they are so similar I would guess it out performs the Empire.

I like VLocitys..they are sweet

I might pick me up one of these since they are so cheap. I mean $98 for a VL jr with speedfeed and Gangstar chip, plus I get a team discount from there

Problem is guys i live in South Africa, The velocity is like 1500 Rand, and the halo v35 with rip drive and the reloader b2 are both 900 bucks each, so its a big difference.
And doesnt the v35 halo outperform the vlocity? it feeds up to 35 bps on a gun, and the vlocity only feeds 25 on a gun??

35bps is just bursts and it wil not feed 35 bps on gun consistantly

The v35 might outperform the stock Vlocity but if you put a Gangstar or other upgrade chip in it then it will out perform the Halo..BUT if youre still set on getting the one of those I'd get the Empire B2. The Empre B/B2 uses sound/vibration, like vike said, and the Halo uses eyes, my teammate has had some trouble with his Halo not sensing dark paint.

Thanks for the info, I would really love to get the vlocity but as i say its a lot more expensive than the halo and empire and performance differances arent much different.

Thanks a lot for the advice, i appreciate it!
