the reloader is $40 more dollers because it has a rip drive built in. the only other differnce is the reloader is sound activated.

the reloader b has a different board in it and its faster. if you are rollin in dough then yea id get a reloader b but for an ion an egg is a better choice( in my opinon) and heres why. halos are big, bigger then the ion its self and eggs are a little smaller. also out of the box the egg feeds 17-18 bps consistantly and your ion is capped at 17 so theres no chance ull out shoot the egg.

reloaders are good, they are a little quicker and the rip drive standard is nice. If u've got $40 u don't really need buy it. However, u could buy a case of paint w/ the money saved.

To convert a Halo B to a Reloader B it would cost $60, so yeah it's worth it.

Eggs are horrible. They feed about 14.

Get a halo with angry.

If you want to just spend $100, then get the Halo, or look for a used Reloader B. Both are awesome, but I feel the Reloader B is better. These are the best quality loaders.

Don't consider an EggII. They feed like 15bps. with the standard Y-Board, and even with the Z-Board upgrade, they feed like 17bps. - 18bps. which is like $30. It will cost you just as much for that as a Halo B does. Not to mention Eggs are made of really crappy plastic and a lot of parts break easily. They are not exactly long lasting loaders.

Well i found an egg online for $66 and it shot 16-17bps and im kind of running short on money because im spending it all on an ion and a n2 tank so im trying to find the best hopper/loader for the cheapest price as of now.
