Definately a cheetah'd halo. I would also look into a boost pack or some other type of rechargeable battery, but from what I hear the voltage regulator on boost packs doesn't work sometimes, and it can fry the cheetah board.

^^^

Vlocitys are nice, but I've had far too many bad experiences with eggs to completely trust newer VL products, and the rate at which they eat batteries is disgusting.

why would someone need 30 bps??? Let alone 38....
Because the advertised speed is not the actual speed. It's only the top speed in a drop test. When you put it on a gun, the average speed is always a lot lower.

After 2 Halo's (various chips) and 2 Reloader Bs...I splurged and went with a VLocity boost chip and Lithion ion bat pack... for me the balance is better on my Karni and Timmy, course thats subjective.

The battery life problem is solved with Boost.

Looks.. I don't really care but I prefer Halos I guess

Feedrate with Vlocity is phenomenal, not that I really had problems before but the Always on nature of it somehow seems more consistent.

Its definatly lighter...

I shaved the bottem of the feed with a dremel and height wise there roughly equal to Halo now.

Durability is top notch so far, tho I think the feedneck is weaker and shell walls don't seem quite as thick. The places I usually break which are at the lid and the battery door seem fine however.

I don't use a speedloader, so if you prefer those I guess you go Halo/Reloader.

As for the Hybrid shells for Reloader/Halo... man I had one, I broke it in roughly three days, friends of mine had far better luck than I did, but still I'm not crazy about them heh.

So yah... I think I'd like to revise my previous statement. I think VLocity's > Halos now.

I just wish speed feeds were compatible with them and that you didn't have to replace the batteries every one or two cases. Other than that my new Vlocity makes me vurry happy.
