If you bet a Halo or Reloader B, get the Hybrid shell for it and you are done. The Hybrid has a warrantee against the lid and feedneck breaking off. If you send it back to them they send you a new one.

NONONO

Do NOT buy the Hybrid shell if your looking for a Strong Shell.

I NEVER play rough with my gear, and just after two days of PB, this happend:

Warrantee doesn't cover that, so basically it was money down the drain.\

BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK!

The shells themselves are actually weaker on my hybrid suicide shells. But I didn't know about that warranty.

The stock halo shells are the most durable as they are made of lexan. Not just some plastic like viewloader stuff.

Reloader B and Halo B use the same Lexan shells. Wouldn't be surprised if the VLocity used the same. But, it's either that or weaker, cause VL's shells always suck.

Not sure. Technology I guess, fact that they come with RIP stock, they are a little more functional, also have the extra 4 battery holder.

I think that they are a wee tiny bit faster stock than Halo's are stock.

They are the same exact shells. I emailed Odyssey with the question a long time ago.

And the speed wouldn't matter, wouldn't change the price. I was looking for the things that the Reloader B includes, why it would cost more to manufacture/sell.

And yes, the Reloader B's stock board does feed faster than the Halo B's stock Z-Code.
