vlocity or halo b?

I need a new really fast hopper and I was woundering which one was faster? How fast is the cheetah? I hear of a new WAS board for the halo, how fast will that one feed?

Vlocity is 4x times lighter and faster. Not sure about how fast it is compared to the Angry board or the WAS.

Vlocity is lighter, smaller and uglier. It also has an auto unjam on it stock. The halo can be faster, can have rip drive and is definitely better looking, but weighs more.

edit- vlocitys definitely aren't faster than a WAS'd or Cheetah'd halo.

Personally, I wouldn't even consider a Vlocity when considering past VL loaders and Halo's reputation.

Cheetah's can get past 30bps., Angry Boards are pretty damn fast too, faster than Victory Boards, and WAS says their boards are supposed to be faster than Cheetahs.

If you really want speed, then look into a Q-Loader. They only hold 100 balls at a time, and are way different from a normal loader, but you can expect consistent speed over 35bps. probably. Seen one on a Viking do like 34, fastest I've seen and could have only been done with a Q-Loader.

I think that a Halo is faster (especially with a cheeta board). The Halo also wins the "looks" contest. The Vlocity looks like a big, triangle-like, cheese wedge on top of a marker. The Halo might be heavier, but so what? The Vlocity is like 4 ounces lighter than a halo. OMG. Wow. Such a difference. Besides, who really notices how heavy a gun is on the field. My gun wieghs around 7 lbs with everything on it. Is the weight of the hopper going to matter that much?

It seems like Odysseys customer support is going down from what I've heard, and what I'm experiencing: I sent in my halo to get it fixed, and it's been over two weeks since they recieved it, and they haven't even looked at it yet.

VL might make weaker shells, but they are a bigger company and I'd imagine their customer support would be a wee bit better... I don't for sure, since I've never had to deal with them myself. But that's why I'm personally thinking of switching to a VLocity.

Odyssey still makes their stuff way better than viewloader, lexan shells are awesome.

Also bigger companies usually do worse with customer support than smaller companies, for example: AKA and macdev, then take say bob long and smart parts. Bob long and smart parts are definitely worse with customer support than macdev or AKA.

If you do the dual 9 volt mod to the halo you lose like 3 ounces. So that pretty much makes the vlocity useless. The vlocity is still smaller, so that might be an advantage.

True... but if Odyssey treats all their customers like they are treating me, then VL couldn't possibly be worse. And from what I've heard VL actually has decent customer/tech support.

I dont understand when people say that viewloader's shells are bad cause my friend got mad at his egg and he threw it against a wall as hard as he could and it didnt even crack in one place.

Then he must be really weak.

When I had my Egg, I took care of it, tried to be very gentle with it. Yet, it still felt very brittle. The neck especially. It was on the verge of breaking before I sold it. Two little, tabs I guess you could say, on the inside of the loader on the neck broke and made it very wobbley. It's just really crappy material/ design compared to a Halo's. Not sure if the Vlocity uses the same material as an Egg's though.

All the 4 revvy shells I used broke at the neck, and don't even call that user error because I tighten my feedneck twice as tight on my halo and dive harder than when I had my revvy.

I've owned two Egg II's, and both broke without me even abusing them that much on the field... never even dove with them or anything, they just wore out and cracked on their own.

i would def get a halo over the vlocity..i have played with both and the vl is incredibly ugly...it might be a little bit lighter but i just can't stand the way they look...plus put a board in your halo and it will be faster than the vl....

Halo = more upgrades, better looking, stronger, good reputation
Vlocity = ugly, seem to be cheaply made, sits really high on your marker

I'm still on the fence about either right now, but those comparisons seem pretty stupid...

-First off, looks are irrelevant and it's an opinion. Granted, I haven't met anyone that prefers the looks over a halo, but I have no doubt that it will begin to grown on people, especially owners...

-Halo is stronger? That remains to be seen, people are only assuming the strength is bad due to past VL hoppers.

-Vlocity cheaply made? I haven't heard that one yet, seems like a straight up random assumption to me.

-Good reputation for Odyssey? I've heard, and experienced the exact opposite.

-Vlocity sits really high on the gun? I'm on the verge of calling shens on you using the VLocity at all, because the halo and Vlocity are the same height.

-Halo has more upgrades? Uhh... that would be wierd if the Vlocity had any upgrades available at all at this point, it's only been out for what, a month? The halo has been out for quite a bit longer.

Until I personally test the Vlocity, I'm going to withhold my judgement.

ok first off i have played with both so i know what i am talking about..
first off the vlocity looks like a giant cheese wedge sitting on top of your marker...I measured the how strong they are by my personal opinion of sitting there holding them both....Just because the halo has been out longer still doesn't make me wrong about upgrade boards...also i have never had problems with odyssey, Now about the height i might be wrong since my halo neck is cut down but the vl is def not shorter

I don't really care whether or not if you like what i have to say but Maybe you should go and test yourself before posting how stupid my opinion is...

Still, the general opinion is that the halo looks better

-Halo is stronger? That remains to be seen, people are only assuming the strength is bad due to past VL hoppers.

The halo is definitely stronger, its made out of lexan which is very strong and can take hard impacts. In fact lexan is what is used to make bulletproof glass

-Vlocity cheaply made? I haven't heard that one yet, seems like a straight up random assumption to me.

Of course its an assumption, an educated assumption based on the quality of their other loaders

-Good reputation for Odyssey? I've heard, and experienced the exact opposite.

I've never heard one complaint about the customer service at odyssey. I've heard tons from viewloader.

-Vlocity sits really high on the gun? I'm on the verge of calling shens on you using the VLocity at all, because the halo and Vlocity are the same height.

I just hope people don't start acting like the vlocity is hot **** when its as good as or worse than a halo.

In my opinion the egg 2 was the worse hopper i have ever paid for.. i droped it once diving into a snake and the shell cracked in like 3 places and the battery latch broke off.. also its not a true force fed hopper soo if you have a fast gun and there are aout 30 or 40 balls left in the egg the egg will drop the balls in the chamber but, sense there is no pressure on them they will bounce a little but they have still broken thee eyes causeing the gun to fire wen the ball isnt even settle so you chop constantly unless the hopper is full..

I've already broken 1 empire shell and 1 halo shell. They are not the greatest. I have nothing against them, but i have definately broken them.

Technically, they are the greatest, lol. Nothing is better I'm pretty sure. But everything breaks.

Again.. it's still irrelevant, and very rarely are people fond of the looks of brand new items anyways. It will grow on people.

-Halo is stronger? That remains to be seen, people are only assuming the strength is bad due to past VL hoppers.

The halo is definitely stronger, its made out of lexan which is very strong and can take hard impacts. In fact lexan is what is used to make bulletproof glass
Rofl... it's pretty much just plastic, and cracks pretty damn often. I don't find the plastic on VL hoppers to actually be any weaker, it's more the design of the Egg that causes problems (specifically the feedneck).

-Vlocity cheaply made? I haven't heard that one yet, seems like a straight up random assumption to me.

Of course its an assumption, an educated assumption based on the quality of their other loaders
Who knows, maybe VL actually has some business smarts and introduced a stronger plastic for their shiny new hopper. It's still just an assumption.

-Good reputation for Odyssey? I've heard, and experienced the exact opposite.

I've never heard one complaint about the customer service at odyssey. I've heard tons from viewloader. Hear mine: They've had my Halo for over three weeks now and haven't even opened the package to see what's wrong with it. Ask Jaggy about his experiences too.

-Vlocity sits really high on the gun? I'm on the verge of calling shens on you using the VLocity at all, because the halo and Vlocity are the same height.

-Halo has more upgrades? Uhh... that would be wierd if the Vlocity had any upgrades available at all at this point, it's only been out for what, a month? The halo has been out for quite a bit longer.

I'm still 50/50 on whether to join the VLocity cult.
