Just a thought here, how about you sell your HALO and always play with an SPPL legal hopper? I am selling off all of my Reloader B's, I had three, now down to two, and I only play with a Fasta now. Hey, it holds more paint then the HALO's, and I am pretty much a 10 BPS shooter, so I am more than happy to just use that all of the time.
Flat out, I would rather use a Halo over an SPPL legal hopper. Now, I know nothing of the Fasta, and I am pretty sure its force fed, but deffinatly has a higher feed rate than 15, there for making it not legal for me ot use in the SPPL.
And simply put, with two pieces of equipment. Why would I want to sell the better of the two? SPPL is not the only paintball I play, and I think the argument most people have is, they would like to play the SPPL, but do not find it worth while enough to buy a $50 peice of equipment just to play one or two events a year, exspecially if that piece of equipment has less performance than their normal gear.
Its like owning your dream car (even though you obey the speed limit), but the goverment making you buy a Geo just so you can drive on "Tree-Hugger Hippy Day"
Besides, if someone REALLY wanted to cheat, I could think of a half dozen ways to get around the SPPL hopper restrictions.
I agree with the limited paint idea. I think that would deffinatly make it fun. I think this would be a perfect rule if the SPPL is still trying to make it so "everyone" can compete, and no one can buy their way to an advantage (being able to afford more paint)
