the halo isnt a force feed its belt driven, q-loader is force feed, get the halo b w/ rip drive but get the victory board for it, it can feed up to 35bps which is faster than the q-loader by 5bps.

It doesnt really matter because no gun can shoot that fast anyways. Even if they claim it can, you will most likely chop a ball. just go with the Halo because it holds more.

yes go wtih the halo q's are poor quality and a hassle oh yeah if you fed paint out of a halo b at 35 bps it would turn every ball into a big mass of paint

Only get the qloader if you don't want the hopper on top of your gun. The tubes are annoying to load, but it's not hard and the lack of batteries is a definite plus.
 
I wouldn't recommend a qloader for speedball at all. Can't carry much paint with you.

I would go with the Halo. The Q-loader is new technology while the Halo has been around and has proved to be a good investmemt. One of the people I play with bought a Q-loader and we were not impressed with it. At one point during the day he used it he spent quite a bit of time fiddling with it. The Q-loader has potential, but I would wait until it has been out awhile and the company has responded to feedback from owners and tweaked it's performance.

yeah. go with the halo. q-loader only comes with 2 pods( so you cant throw them away) and plus the pods are really expensive.

I've got both the halo and the qloader.  I prefer the qlaoder for the type of play i'm in.  If you are a speedball player the halo may be a better way to go.  If you depend on stealth as a part of play, the qloader is great.  I had a friend play with a halo and as soon as he turned it on, everyone new exactly where he was positioned.  all they had to do was aim for the sound.  It does take a bit to get the q adjusted just right.  but once you are adjusted, there is nothing better.  sure, the halo with the board upgrade is 5 balls a second faster.  but unless you have a marker that actually shoots 35 balls per second, this isnt a real big plus for the halo.

They only hold 100 paintballs. Plus it feeds 31 bps, so thats more like 1.935(around there, mental math isnt as exact as a calc)...Sorry, I might be getting a little too technical.
