This goes in hoppers.

Get a reloader B. It is worth the money, easily.

What problem did you have with it before?

No, Empire and Odyssey are sister companies under NPS.

They work differently.

imho i dont mind the halo's bad eyes (cant see dark shelled paint?) compared to all the things that could possibly go wrong on a sound activated hopper

Except Halos won't always read paint.

Empire B's will. And since I payed 100 for mine bnib, it's all good.

I'malso facing the same choice, and I'm quite partial to empire. Not sure what I want to do.

I can get either one for wholesale (as in, what stores pay for them) prices.

I love my halo, never had any problems, and if you keep the eyes clean and the batteries fresh you never will.

When you batteries die and you twist the rip drive, your essentially turning it into a gravity fed hopper, and the force fed effect is no longer created, correct (I assume I am)

Empires are damn nice...untill someone comes up next to you.

My friend was playing and my other friend slid in next to him and started shooting, and all of a sudden my first friends empire started feeding turning it into a blender.

Sound activated can also be a bad thing...

You assumed wrong. The rip drive(when wound completly) whines the spring as well, keeping the forcefeed effect. Sure...the last couple of balls(3 or 4) are gravity fed, but you wouldn't be shooting fast at this point anyways so you shouldn't chop.

my bad experiance was when i was using it and it kinda made mush out of my marbalizers... my friend told me it may have been because marbalizers are half like dark green and the eyes didint pick it up... i dont know what happened.

I've head lots of horror stories about the empire sound system thing getting screwed up simply by turning it on in the wrong environment (too loud), while I've never actually heard anyone complain about their halo eyes not seeing paint. Besides... you can just buy brighter paint. Most paint is anyways.

Reloader B.

It's faster than a Halo with Z-Code. Almost as fast as a Halo with Victory Board (some people say as fast). It's lighter (comes with a 6 and a 4 battery pack). Way better on batteries (especially the Victory Board). Can get them with diamond colored shells (pimp). No eyes (works with any paint, keeps feeding if a ball break does occur but a Halo can't because it's eyes will get blocked by the paint). Has speed settings (helps with battery use I believe, and is nice if you never shoot 20+ bps.).

BTW, the WAS Board is coming out, don't know when, but it is amazing, and can work with either a Halo or Reloader.

I've owned 3 halos and currently own a Reloader B.

So far I love the Reloader B. It has modes so if it's breaking paint you can turn the mode down and it won't break paint anymore. It's also nice to have it keep feeding if a ball breaks. I had ****ty luck with Halo eyes and that made me rock an egg for 1.5 months.

I'd definitly pick up a Reloader B.
