Arrow VLocity is UGly

I saw the VL VLocity and its ugly as hell? I saw one on a Promaster and the promaster looked nice but it looked retarded with the VLocity on it. Dont they have like a better looking body for it? I know its a nice fast hopper but I'd probably get a halo which is only like 3bps slower and a bit cheaper. Does anyone else think the same way I do?

The VLocity is a great hopper actually. It may look a bit odd, but i hear they perform well.

In MY opinion, go with a halo b. Why would you NEED to fire over 20bps (the cap on the halo), and if you get a rip drive for it, you're set to clear jams, or get the extra paint out of your hopper without turning it on (even in a game if you run out of batteries!)

I thought the cap on the halos was higher than 20bps.

Its like 22. But if you get a upgrade board its like 35, which is completly useless.

Not exactly. 35bps. for a Halo is awesome. Cheetah, which is the fastest board for the Halo at this time can just top 30bps.

i want someone to show me a tournament series where you are allowed to shoot 20bps+, because a tournament, nowadays, would be the only place where you'd NEED to shoot fast.

If you have trouble telling the difference, you must be blind. It's not so much that it is ugly, but since it looks like the Halo so much and is irregular when you compare the two, we think it's ugly because we are not used to it.

i thought this was funny

anyway for the person that said the upgrade board got 35 bps, im assuming your talking about the victory board. they victory board is advertised to feed 35, but it only actually feeds about 26

i don't mind them that much.

but it always throws me off a little seeing them on guns. Makes the guns seem so much taller, but i know it's really not that much.

this is old, but still useful and cool. DONT POST IN THERE, ITS REALLY OLD.
