youd be more comfortable with the egg on an ion, u might have to cut the neck though, DEFINATLY use the money for a new feedneck

my friend has an egg and a halo and i have a halo. I have used his egg and imo it is nothing compared to the halo. I would take the halo for the little extra cost a million times over.

the egg will feed fast enough. the halo b is all around better and you may eventually want one. but yeah, what freak said, just use the extra $ for a good clamping feedneck. just be prepared to replace broken parts on the egg (i heard its kidna flimsy). but my friend who has one loves it and says it uses less batteries than a halo does.

Forget the egg. If you want to save some cash and you're not gonna be playing any serious tournies any time soon just get a revvy.

eggs are pretty good, but unless you have two fairly fresh batteries it's gonna jam like crazy, so never just buy 1 9 vt. for it, if you're gonna replace one just go ahead and save the trouble by changing them both

get the halo if you dont you'll end up wanting it later

Save yourself the pain and go ahead and buy a Halo.

I bought an egg and sold it a few months after and bought a Halo. I love it.

The egg is by far the ****tiest hopper ever made. I'd take a gravity feed over it. Get the halo, you won't regret it.

wow i've owned a egg for over a year, and it's never broken one part. Though all the guys that own halos have cracks all up and down their hoppers from being shot, or diving etc. I know the feed faster sure, but they aren't as sturdy as all of you crack them up to be. so far 2 eggs on the teams and no cracks. 5 halos ALL cracked.

or 60, there is something i do want to bring up, despite having said that my egg never broke compared to Halos. And that is balance, the Halo is a mroe of a traditional hopper and has a better balance, the Egg goes to far back and can be uncomfortable to use.

Viewloader, it's called the 12vt revolution, revvy for short

get a halo B or empire reloader B. Save the pain and money. The problem with eggs is the design. It's very back heavy. The front has the feedneck and carries not nearly as many balls as the back. The back heavy makes it easier on you for when you post so it's more comfortable. But because of the weight distribution your more likely to snap the neck.


Imagine shoveling your driveway after a snowyday. You take the shovel and you pick up lots of snow. Now your arms are a distance away from the snow because of the shovel and it's hard to carry. BUT say you hold the shovel from the spade. Now it feels so much lighter and easier to carry. Same effect happens with the egg vs halo B. it's all a matter of weight distribution because both are very fast.

Ok i would say your wrong. Eggs are decent, they feed pretty fast, and they hold a lot of paint. Although I will say get a Halo B w/ rip and you'll be all set. I really cant stress enough how nice halos are over eggs. Also the feednecks on eggs crap extremly easy due to the way ther made

I've owned 3 eggs, and they all have broken at the neck, not fed fast enough, chopped balls inside the hopper, and have overall been complete pieces of ****. I've never ahd a single problem with a halo other than the eyes getting blocked by dirt (a single occasion), which I solved by getting a Reloader B.

If eggs have you caused you soooo many problems, why have you owned three of them?

I had the egg 1, an egg2 with the stock board, and the egg 2 with the y and z board. I owned so many because I used to have an Angel LCD, and it would double feed with a halo due to the single ball detent. I got a timmy after that, and immediately upgraded to a halo.

Yeah, I understand you with the angel problem, but dude, stiffer detents arent that hard to get. Or mod the one you had. About the only people that you see shooting eggs (at the pro level) are people sponsored by VL. And most of them shoot Vlocitys now. Although I thought I saw Alex Fraige shooting an egg in a recent video. May have been old though.
