if you have the cash get a halo cuz then in the future when you get a faster gun {if you want to} you won't need to buy another hopper. If you don't have the cash for a halo i'd say the viewloader cuz its a decent feed rate for the price.

Cyclone, and heres why: No batteries, 17bps, only 60 dollars. A Halo is like $90, and the cyclone IMO will rape the egg, also the elbow on the tippmann slows down feed rate considerbly. Remember that, plus the cyclone makes nearly no noise at ALL, it is extremely silent. On a tippmann IMO Cyclone>Everything else.

I say cyclone if you plan on sticking with your tippy. Realy nice to not have to worry about anything, you keep the tippmann durablitity, lose the batts, and you will have very very very few chopped balls. Plus they are quite fast.

Really fast, fast enough for a tippy any way, and BTW NO CHOPS.

And the profile rocks for playing woodsball. You don't see a hopper sticking up in the air when you have one of those.

put a qev($5 ,ion) on a cyclone($59) and you can get like 23 bps and the halo is like $90 and another upgrades for it are like another $90 it is just not worth it . If you get another brand marker you will can get a better deal if you buy it as a package

Uhm he has response trigger so yeah he needs an electro derf. If you plan on getting a higher end gun in the future go with teh halo, if your gonna stick with your tippy with response get a 12v revvy thats what I had when I had my rt tippy.

Go for the Cyclone, but consider getting the Ricochet R5 hopper for it, for more bounces. Only thing is, it makes the paint rattle inside, so you can line it with some stuff... I forget what it is at the moment, but apparently you can buy a liner that will keep it quiet.

I didn't know that. Where did you get that information just wondering? With my HALO B i never noticed a slow feed rate.

Get a halo. Its more versatile and doesn't add extra area for you to get shot, like the cyclone.

WhiteLightening, you're not a genious. You don't know everything. So stop acting like it.
