1) What's the difference between a Halo B and a Reloader B? Why does the Reloader cost more?
2) (newbish and retarded I know) What's a rip drive?
3) Which is the best agitated hopper for my friend? He's got some off-brand electro, he says he can get up to 15bps on it.

1. The HALO B is activated by a sensor, or eye, in the neck, whereas the Reloader B is sound activated. The reloader B is more expensive because it comes standard with rip drive, where as the Halo does not (Halo B with rip is about the same price as the reloader B, though I have recently seen cheap Halo's with rip drive.)

2. Edit: My explanation sucked, someone else will be able to do better.

3. Revvy, or reloader b. Either one is good.

1. The difference between the two, while quite the same in looks, is the way they detect paintballs. A halo B uses a breakbeam eye sensor to detect when a ball needs to be fed. The relaoder b on the other hand use sound activation(though actualy vibration seeing how sound is vibration) and whenever the gun is fired is fed. The Reloader B comes stock with rip drive hence the higher price.
2. The rip drive is a nifty little tab on the bottom of a halo b or reloader b. It allows one to unjam or manually feed paintballs. With a similiar twist counter-clockwise, you will feed paintballs and wind the spring and this can allow up to 15 paintballs to fed at normal speed. By turning it clockwise you will unjam(and unwind the spring) the hopper.
3. Revi or reloader.

spelling

Wait...isn't the reloader B the Empire verison of a Revvy? It's just a sound activated version of the Revvy, it's slow like the revvy too, a Halo B can get so much faster. Just buy rip drive for your halo.

Or is the reloader B that empire version of a halo...w/ so many hot colors!? lol :naughty
