Thank you for telling us that worthless information, that in no way helped in the question asked.

Once again, thank you for the worthless information that at least gets closer then the crap up above. You mentioned one item of business, and then the second item wasn't even needed or even close. I think someone is running a post count race?

This thread so far is full of worthless information, there for i thought it would be correct of me to add more. But personally i would roll with the cyclone because it semi forces the ball into chamber and less chance of blow back.

between the 2 get the 2kx because you can put that on a different gun if you get one. But you might just want to get a halo. You can find some halos for about $110

are you ****ing kidding me? who do you think you are, honestly? 110 posts in 2 years and youre god of paintball?

smitty knows what he is talking about. smitty barely gets on the forum anymore so if you knew anything about anything, smitty isnt trying to do anything but help. you have a halob on your tippy in your sig, wtf are you talking about??

btw the cyclone works on extra co2 so with that on there it might not work good all the time, whereas with a halob it feeds off of batteries so itll work fine.

I would go with the reloader but I got a Egg on my 98c mostly cause of the mods i have done and it kinda needs it (Follow the link in my sig to see the vid of it singing)

ya atleast 10 balls choped in less then a sec did kinda suck. Part of my problem is because of how I have modiffied my 98. THis is because it is now operating at 550psi. And that pressure will only get the cyclone feading at about 10 bps. so when the gun is cycling at 17+ bps at the same pressure things tend to get messy very fast

But if i had some ice i could have made some mageritas with it

I am glad you can and cannot observe the obvious. Where in the first post does he ask about a HALO B? If the user wanted to know about the HALO B he would of asked, or is that to hard to understand. I am sorry if I must be judged by how many posts I have completed. I tend to lean towards listening not blaring out random answers. By now you are looking for some back posts of mine to prove me wrong, but personally I love fighting on the Internet... Don't waste your time, because I don't have time.

And no I am not "kidding you". Did I claim I was a God of paintball? If you haven't noticed I answered the question. I thought it was the least I could do.

freddy are you high? there is no other rational explanation for the crap spewing forth from your keyboard and at a mod no less,which company do you claim to be out of buisness? empire? or perhaps tippman? two fo the largest companies in paintball as we know it? perhaps you would like to trade post counts? mines pretty low, but look at the sp forum and the ion upgrade thread, I'm not terribly dumb either, you on the other hand have proven your idiocy I agree with smitty on this one drink bleach and go away BTW the cyclone is OK my A-5 work fine with it, and the ricochet seems to be compareable (no personal experience) but if you are looking to get some serious bps out of your gun get a reloader b/halo b you will be much happier in the long haul

I do not personally hate him nor did I accuse him of anything other then his irrational information given. Thank you for further pointing out the obvious, and yes I do understand he is a mod. There for he must be of a higher being then myself? For one thing it must be great to think one has power on a forum board, and use it in a threatening way. If Smitty lets me get the best of him by simply typing what I did, I am truthfully sorry.

Who is high? I am connected to two businesses from my post? Second off, I have no quarrel with you. I simply stated what I believed.

This forum on a whole most of the time tends to be on the side of not reading what someone asks for. If the individual up above wanted to know about a HALO B or for any other hopper for that matter he would of stated so. Is that wrong?

Freddy - shhhhhhutup. You sound like a fool jumping down a mods throat like that... Smitty knows a lot and his suggestion was basically an automatic reply to a very common question.

As for the Ricochets, I just got an AK on my 98C and I LOVE it. Its a little big but it works great and I have no problem tucking up tighter in the brush if I need to.

Now speedball... thats a different story. My marker is way to bulky for it these days. The 45* neck + ricochet make the profile of the gun very large for speedball.

Damn... this is just halarious. This class is boring (in school) so I stumbled upon this and now I'm laughing histarically (sp)

I personally have bad experiences with Ricochet hoppers. To me they are poorly made. I would take the Halo B and an E-Trigger also.
