The eggy is a piece of trash in quality. They're brittle, slow, and are not true forcefed hoppers. the halo B is FAR superior to it in every way, shape and form.

yeah but i herd the halo B can mess up your gun cause it shoves them down the neck """It feeds balls into the gun with so much force that your going to have to start replacing components to deal with this (or just chop balls) I had to replace my detents and bolt (on my timmy) to accommodate my hopper. My angel was totally overwhelmed (only 1 detent) When I investigated I found the forums filled with LOTS of people having problems with the halo shoving balls down so hard it causes problems. So big is the problem that Halo is on the 3rd mod to the halo to try and control the ball feed torque. The best adjustment you are left with is to grease the belt to reduce the torque the motor is transmitting and thus how hard the hopper is jamming balls down into the gun. Think about it, what a rotten solution this is!""

only if you have very weak detents; this may have been a problem years ago when it was released adn detents were not built for such pressure, but that is no longer the case. In fact, I've never heard of that problem. thousands of people use the halo, I don't see any reason against using it.

they do make thte feedneck fat, but they're made that way on purpose so that they're a nice tight fit. If it it too fat, youc an either buy a clamping feedneck, or sand the feedneck down slightly so that it does fit.

reloaderB mostly identical to the HaloB other than having sound activated instead of eyes. Either one is VASTLY superior to the Egg.
