So I got a a Halo Too 1.0....

Finall I got a better hopper than my TM Series Rip Clip and bought myself a Halo Too. I kind of already have a Halo Too, the thing is it is somewhere in Mexico city waiting to be sent back to the U.S so that it can be re sended to Guadalajara. The difference is that when I checked I bought the older 1.0 version and the one in Mexico City is the 2.0, and I didn't know that the Halo Too had a previous version. Anyway, this is my experience so far:

I oped the package and saw the other stuff I asked for and a white box, where I found the Halo Too inside. It had no manual nor batteries or anything else, just teh hopper. So I placed the batteries inside and did a drop test to see how fast it is. I realized that when I turned it on that it worked with eyes and not with ears like the 2.0, I also noticed it only has one button and I coudn't see any possible way of programing it. So I started the drop test and I counted 12 seconds for 150 balls, that means it loaded at an aprox. speed of 12.4 BPS (And I say aprox since is sometimes didn't load anything because there where no balls in the ring). Is this how fast it is supposed to be? I have my marker at 8.5 BPS so it is not much of a problem, but I though it was like 15 BPS on this hopper. I guess is probably the batteries, I used duracell (it uses 6 AA batteries).

Find a manual online for it, I'm sure you can change it's speed. I know you could with halos.

Holding down the button should enter programming mode, the led should flash. I imagine its similar to the v35 halo board code.

I didn't know they did a revision of it, but the first Halo Too board was the same as the Empire Reloader B2.

Well I can't find any manuals of it, and when I thought I did it wasn't of that one, I got one of the Halo Too 2.0, of the Reloder B, the Halo A, Halo B, Halo V35, Halo Rip Drive, bur not Halo Too 1.0, just a review stating ho wawesome it is (from 2002). Acording to the review guy, this thing cann reach up to 22 BPS, mine can only get to 12.5 BPS what is wrong in here?.

Can you post a pic? Since you describe it as having eyes, I wonder if it isn't an old Halo B.

I've checked the box and it says "Halo Belt Drive Series". I've never heard of that, but I noticed that the Hopper in the picture of the product is not the same nor the name. I think I've been cheated by that online website. Still, the hopper should reach 20 BPS acording to the box front, and it doesn't.

Sounds like a Halo B.

And keep in mind that "drop tests" don't work on force-fed hoppers like the Halo line - they're designed to have a ball-stack in place to utilize spring tension. It'll feed a lot faster on a gun.

Halo Belt Drive was the entire family of Halo's. HaloB was the most popular of those. Technically I think the Halo Belt Drive had a different board so it was much slower than the Halo B proper, but that was I believe the only difference.

Yeah, I don't think there are different versions of the Halo Too
Definitely would say that you got a HaloB, still not a bad hopper (actually a pretty good hopper)

whew, reading this post is started to worry maybe you had gotten a Halo TSA instead......

As others have said looks like a halo B for sure, but all the variations look pretty similar. I'd try and see if the v35 code is on it, should be able to adjust things from there.

I didn't hate on it. I just stated that I was worried he'd gotten a halo TSA, which if he's expecting a halo Bs performance, he will be sorely disappointed.
