Some say yes, some say no. Lots of them have really bad shells. I wouldn't reccommend it if you play very aggressive since the shells break easily.

Then whats a good hopper under $90?Or instead of getting an Evo II and Mine T-Lock feed neck would you recomend a Halo B?My budget is about $600 on Ion with some other crap.

Well, a Halo B is $100. They are totally recommended.

Halo or reloader. My halo hasn't had any problems and I haven't cleaned the eyes in around 7 months.

Do not buy an egg. It will not be worth it.

My budget is about $600, and I want a barrel, feed neck, hopper, mask, Ion, harness, hopper, and tank.I wouldn't be able to get everything on my list if I got a Halo B.I'm gonna get the Evo II anyways.If I don't like it I will upgrade to a Halo B.

It's force feed in a way which is that it does feed faster than the force of gravity. However, it is not true force feed like the Halo/Reloader B's. These loaders are constantly applying force to the paintballs being fed into the marker because of the drive cone and spring setup. There is never a gap between the paintballs during the feeding process unlike Eggs which waits for a gap and then feeds the paint. This is a slower and less consistent way of feeding paint.

let me just say this right now.

everyone with a fast gun ditches their egg ASAP

well why is this??

b/c eggs feed 14bps average w/ a max of maybe 16bps

it holds you back. It's a strange design that puts all the weight on one side of the feedneck which is another reason why eggs suck. Along w/ their battery door (breaks SO easy) and the fact that viewloader made the shells. Which means they will break under any form of strenuous play.

ion $200
tank $200
halo B $100
mask $60
pack $40

then go play some paintball.

bobide speaks the truth.

I wasted a lot of money on two eggs and their replacement parts before finally wising up and buying a halo.

You're probably going to want to buy a clamping feedneck if you get a halo. Why in the world you won't buy one used, I know not. I just do know that you can buy a like new halo or empire for around 80 and use the rest to buy a feedneck.

I'm starting to agree with them curtis, I was going to get an egg, I may still be. But hearing all this just scares me out of it, the only reason I was going to get an egg instead was cuz I heard horro stories of the halo b just quitting, but I don't care now.

Ok.I put a cheaper pair of goggles, tank, barrel, and harness in my basket.Here is everything I'm goona get.
Smart Parts Ion Paintball Gun
5 32 Degrees Guppy Paintball Tubes
Pure Energy Glass 3-Year 68x4500 HP Bottle
New Designz Ion Pro-Lock Feedneck
Redz 5+5 Dimension Harnesse
VForce Pro Vantage Rental Goggles
Smart Parts Impulse Tear Drop Barell
Odyssey Halo B Hopper


It all adds up to $590.10.A little under my budget.

Used gear is your friend.

1) Any smart paintballer pretty much doesn't spend money on pods. They just pick up whatever ones they find on the ground. That, or they buy in bulk.

2) You most definately do not need a 5+5. Get a Unique 3+2, way cheaper and will do the same job.

3) Buy a used barrel. Bad thing about buying used is that whatever you're getting could be broken... but barrels are just tubes. Pretty hard to screw up, you know? Buy a used barrel is relatively safe.

Good luck.
