Hey guys, i feel like I'm the new tlmiller in the making. I wanna buy be try about everything. I was almost sold on buying a prophecy z2. Instead I talked some sense into myself and said I don't need it and my halo works fine. What I hate most is the feedneck is way to long. If I where to cut it to be closer to the gun like the z2 would there be any negative effects? I plan on using a belt sander or pipe cutters.

I've done it with a hack saw and a dremmel before. I don't know if I would use a pipe cutter, the squeezing action may crack it, instead of cutting it. People cut halo feed necks all the time. Just be sure to leave enough that your feed neck has something to grip, while it's on your marker.

Question for you miller rotor or z2? I'm leaning towards the z2, I think it beats it in every category. Besides speed and battery life. What do you think of the to? I posted my halo on pbnation if I get enough ill ermine of the 2 if not ill make the too work.

Rookies...

vbulletin v3.6.8
right. there it is int he lower right corner.


I owned a prophecy and the darned thing was a pain to put back together. It also had some broken tabs on it. this leads me to believe that the rotor HAS to be more durable, because I swear i can pound in tent takes with mine. the only issue is that the rotor has a rather small capacity.

Z2 IMO. Jams less, holds more, just as low a profile. They also addressed the issues with taking the proph apart, putting it back together with the Z2. Much easier and faster now.

Halo Too is really good for the money. Durable shells compared to the older Halo/Reloaders and the Scion. Prophecy anti-jam freeway. If it had a rip drive and the tool less battery door like the Scion it would be the ultimate budget hopper. I still use mine on occasion, although I really need to get new shells some day as mine are as much jb weld as there is normal shell (slight exaggeration)

compared to dead silence everything is loud. the rotor, unless you are within 10 feet of it on a normal field (with others shooting) you will not hear it. on a loud field you can not even hear it if you have it on your marker. for me, I like that it does that. i have had a few cases where the compressor at a field has kicked on and is roaring away and i was not paying enough attention to how much paint was left in the hopper. but when it free spins like that you can feel the vibrations through the grip frame, so then you know that you only have about 5 paintballs down the feedneck before you are absolutely out. that and when it is getting very low it will usually free spin for a second or 2 while it is searching for the last few balls in the hopper, if you feel that you also know you are very low

i have still never seen one or had mine jam (besides trying to feed the soup after a big fall) so idk why everyone says they jam, hasnt been my experience at all even with extremely small paint

Do the v3 rotors really have that many problems? I like looks rotor more but other then that I like the z2 a ton more. If I find one for $100 this weekend I'm buying it. Was able to sell halo locally for forty five. Never even used it lol. Once I get the z2, I should be set high end everything. Also my gun weighing two point. Pounds. Compared to a new dm weighing two point two will you even notice point four pounds difference? Sorry for typing numbers out number pad isn't working.
