    Posted: 05 April 2006 at 12:36am
Well I have a some extra cash and I'm getting a new loader for my mag, I'm looking at the Halo B or the Reloader B, but I can't make up my mind. I'm leaning toward the Reloader B, but still I cannot make the decision. I would like some feedback from people that have used them. So which one should I buy? Price isn't a factor. So what do you think?

Reloader B- Pros: Sound activated, no problems with dark shelled paint. Cons: No drop in upgrade boards availible.

Halo B- Pros: Upgrade boards, cheaper then Reloader B.
Cons: Problems with dark shelled paint.

You decide. I personally have a reloader B and it works fine for me.

The only problem with Halo Bs are the eyes.  They have a problem with darker paint.

Well the only paint I usually shoot are Marbs, so I won't have a problem with dark shell paint. I have read mixed reviews about the Halo B, some saying they are good, and others saying that they are crapping out and only working every once and a while. As for the board in the Reloader B its plenty fast enough for me, 20bps is about all the faster I need to shoot.

Reloader B has rip, so thats not a deciding factor, I think Im gonna go with the reloader, because Im hoping to get on my college team, and if I do, we would be using tourny paint which could possibly be dark shells

Get the Reloader B for sure. Sound activation>Eyes. And as said, the Reloader comes stock with rip, as where the standard Halo's don't. So you'd either have to buy the kit along with it, or buy the one with rip, both costing extra, which will make up the difference in the price between the Reloader and Halo B (or some of it). I have a Diamond Red Reloader B, and love it.

What he said, kinda.

You can get a new Halo B for $93.99 and then take the $37 you saved and buy a new board, such as the v35.

Not true, you can upgrade to the B2....

And I'd go with a Halo B w/ Rip.  Especially with a mag or cocker.  The sound of the back block of a cocker striking, or loud metal "ping"  from mags can "confuse" the microphone in reloader B's.  And if you ever need to upgrade your halo, the Cheetah and Victory boards are both excellent options.

This thread is no longer applied, I got the Reloader B, and it works well with my mag. So, lets just let this thing die.

Or you could buy an eye harness and then a Halo board to go with it.

Check the dates USAF, it was pretty old, and before I knew the B2 was out and that's why I said there's no "Drop In boards" since you have to buy a eye harness....
