One thing about a Halo is you may start to encounter force fed hooper issues with your marker, which you'll see as having more chops if it happens. It caused by the Halo and Reloader B putting more and constant pressure on the ball stack in to the marker which can result in the first ball being pushed back against the bolt (if the bolt is a bit too far back) and having enough of another ball peek in to the chamber for te bolt to chop it, or for the first ball to get pushed past the detents and the same type of chop happens. I have a Halo B w/ the Angry Board for my Timmy. My kid has an Ion with a stock egg (w/ the Y board) and has had fewer chopping problems than me. Getting the Halo may require getting new detents for your marker. I got a ram adjuster for my Timmy (it lets me adjust the bolt posisiton) that seems to help - yesterday I only had one break from about a case of paint.

Another loader to look at is the Ricochet Apache. I ordered one and am awaiting its arrival. I am going to take a step down in loader technology to see if I get fewer problems. I also think it is good for us to have a backup loader in case one of our primary loaders fail.

If you do get the halo, you'll probably want to get one of the aftermarket boards for it. There is the $80 Cheetah board available today and the $50 WAS board comin gin Dec. I am planning on getting the WAS board for mine. The boards will make the Halo more friendly on paint and cause fewer force fed hpper issues.

the reason halo is faster is because it puts constant pressure on the paintballs. the egg only pushes then when it doens't see paint, making it slower than the halo the first 5 or 6 balls.
No, it would be the same if the halos eyes were break beam instead of motion sensing, and if it spun as slow as the egg, and had the same bad design as the egg.
