Reloader B

why no love for the reloader B compared to the Halo B?

Becuase Halos can be upgraded to be a lot better than reloaders, and sound activation sucks.

but yet on pbnation and most other forums they say go with reloader because halo not all the times picks up paint, and sound picks up everytime you shoot so it doesnt matter, plus its faster, and you dont have to rely on eyes because alot of the times, eyes brake. thats what ive heard.

My eyes have never broken. They might get dirty every once in a while, but it takes about 30 seconds to clean them.

An Angry Halo is faster than any reloader. I used to have a reloader and it wasn't very good.

reloader is better...why do u need a halo that goes like 35bps...if u need to shoot that many, you have a problem. between 15-22 is all u need. sound activation > eyes

i had a v35 halo and it jamed frequently. I bought a reloader B after trading it and thats been working fine. i think that if speed is what you want then the halo B will be best because of the upgrades avaliable(v35, angry, paper clip, ect). But in my experience the reloader B has been more reliable. But then agian, maybe i just got a lemon(i did buy used).

My Reloader was the exact opposite. It didn't pick up shots half of the time and on some guns it wouldn't respond.

No, I need something that feeds consistantly. My guns shoots over 12 balls a minute.

yeah, the guy probably just screwed up the halo, nick(l337) who now has it still has problems with it. Ive seen a hell of a lot of halos go down, but ive never seen what you described to that extent...though i guess i did have some problems with it on a dm5...

we all know that by now, but supposeably what its wroth, and paintball who had the halo, thats exactly what im talking about everyone else says that but they say the reloader b is good, im still going to go with a reloader b, I dont need no 35 bps or even 25, the default 22 is fine.

Well i gotta choose from the 2 and I guess I'm gonna go halo cause it can handle my future NME LE's max bps of 35. I doubt I'll ever go above 25 though.

cavemen just remember though in the end youll prolly spend more then the reloader b, a halo doesnt come with 35 bps, unless you buy it WITH the upgrade, which will cost more money. I am not telling you to go with the reloader b, so dont think that, all it is a friendly warning, that its an upgrade because it just seemed like you said well im getting halo because of 35bps. it doesnt come like that.

The Victory Board only feeds 28bps., not 35bps. which it is advertised at.

In the end, you will spend more on the Halo B. Think about it, You'll need the Halo B, RIP Drive, and a new board to be as fast/faster than the Reloader B. Reloader Bs have gotten up to 28bps. aswell with their stock board.

So would a phantom with a delrin bolt, a nme le with delrin and al vl 10 x valved mag be loud enough to activate the reloader b?

I guess that is all that is comes down to.

I heard the Reloader stock was 26.

At the village you can get a new Halo B w/ rip drive for $110. The victory board is $25 and the z-board is $30. $135-$140 on those and it will be faster than a reloader B while being cheaper.

Well ya, right now they are having a sale on them that I wasn't aware of. They are usually $120 for a clear one with RIP, and more for color.

The Z-Code (Z-Board..) comes stock in the Halos...

Victory Boards are $28.

Like $140. I see Reloader Bs go for $140 - $145 also.

Victory Boards also kill batteries. Reloader Bs are awesome with batteries. No eyes to get damaged or blocked. Halo Bs can't feed through a break in the loader because of this which could happen because they are force feed. Like I said, Reloader Bs have been known to feed 28bps. If you need to shoot over 20bps. in a game, your gun is illegal or you're on crack. Reloader B also has 3 speed settings, and 2 battery packs.

i think the reloaders actually pick up vibrations.... although sound is caused by vibrations. but what i mean, is that a simple motion/vibration sensor is much simpler and probablly cheaper than an actual microphone, and i have yet to see a microphone in my reloader b...

someone mentioned the eyes can get dirty but can easily be cleaned in 30 seconds... while this may be true, the reloader b never gets dirty and never needs cleaning, unless paint breaks inside the loader. and those 30-second cleaning periods will add up over time... with the reloader b, you dont have to worry about it at all and you dont waste any time, even if its only 30 seconds.

Who cares if it could be cleaned in 30 seconds. That won't matter until the game you are in is over. In a game, you have no time to clean the eyes, which also means in that game, you have no loader. But there's where the RIP Drive comes in, but who wants to bother with that.

Probably. Like said before, they pick up vibrations. They should all be enough.
