HALO or Cyclone?

Should I get a Cyclone Feeder or a Halo? I have a 98c.

If a Halo, please post a link on where to get one, as I have only seen them in person.

What is the difference between the two? Which is better? If it matters, I plan on getting an E-Trigger soon.

It's a feed system that uses excess gas to rotate a sprocket and force feed the paint into the breech. It's the hopper system that the A-5 comes with, but you can get one for the 98 now.

Like everyone is saying, Halo is the way to go if you plan on getting a new gun any time soon. However, if you are keeping the 98, the cyclone is a good loader. I know that my 98 will never be able to shoot 15 bps, and being content w/ that, I bought a cyclone, and love it. It is far from a "blender" as people have said. I've never broken a single ball since I got it, and if you read the reviews of it on different sites, most people say the same thing. Whatever you get, hope it works out for you.

For a Halo, there's no installation, right? It's just like a normal hopper, that just pops on the hole?

Well I know people that use Tippman 98c's and they love their cyclone on them. I just got a 98c with a cyclone. Things I like about it, lower profile than a normal hopper, at least a inch. Weight, about the same as a loader with 2 9volt bats in it. Cyclone doesn't need bats, just gas and go. Like other people said if you are keeping your 98 it might be worth it to get a cyclone for it. The thing is that you are going to end up with a lot of gear if you stay with this sport. Can't really go wrong whatever you do.

Halo - higher Rate of Fire (how fast can an e-trigged 98 shoot anyway? def not as fast as a halo can feed), keeps the gun skinny, and that's about all the positives i can think of.

Cyclone - ZERO chopped balls, lowers center of gravity, no electronics (a plus for a rainy day), can have higher ball capacity.

if you want to fit in, choose the halo. i'll stick with reliability.

agreed....my cyclone feed has NEVER broken a ball...i love it. it works extremely well...i really see no need to fire more than 15bps anyway? even if someone is shooting at you faster then that...i guess it would just take more skill to get them out

i'd say cyclone because your the 98c has no chance of firing as fast as the halo can feed and you wont chop

What if he ends up selling his setup? In that case, the Halo would be the better choice for Resale. You can sell a used Halo B for $60 with no trouble at all, but if you stick a cyclone feed on a 98c, you'll only increase the value of the gun by $15 or $20.
