My Halo B needs a shell and I was looking at this:

It asks for laser eye color? Is this a choice with the new shell or do I need to know the color of the laser in the Halo? Does this matter a great deal?

That's a knockoff of the Hybrid Suicide Shell. I wouldn't worry about the laser colour, maybe it comes with new eyes?

That's what I figured and thanks for the answer. Knock off is fine, especially at that price :rolleyes:.

I'll give it a shot. I don't need the gear in a hurry and am just grabbing some sale gear. If I can get E/Deo Paintball to get off their rear and refund me my money, hopefully I can deal with any issues ANS has.

When you buy the shell, you get a free set of colored eyes for your Halo hopper....kind of like the "laser" eyes for an Ion but for your Halo.
I've ordered from ANS a few times and haven't had any problems with them or their service.....yet.
A while back there was a pretty considerable flap over ANS selling knock off Myth regs. It was a pretty widely known incident and fairly well publicized on the web.
They do sell "knock off" gear such as the Warrior brand quick strip shells, but they are no worse than any other PB company out there. The shells they sell are/were the same ones that Hybrid was selling, made in the same factory in China and sold as "Private Label".

I think you would be fine to get the shell from them. Ever since the Myth Reg stuff my trust in them went way downhill. They do sell good products, just make sure you know what you are buying if you get anything else.

Maybe I'm just being a little overly cautious?

I wouldn't say that you're being overly cautious, I'd say you are being smart!. They got caught, IMO knowingly, selling bunk goods and trying to pass it off as the real deal (again this is my personal interpretation of the incident) and as a result they have to live with the stigma of being shady.
That being said, I've ordered from them before, during and even after the "Myth Incident" and haven't had any problems with my orders (correct items, correct quantity, on time shipping etc.)...yet. [fingers crossed]

I ordered the shell, some invert elbow pads and a smoke lens for my grill. Nothing too complicated so I imagine it'll be fine. I wanted to pick up some lock lids but after finding them sold out in a couple of places I figured I'd get the lens lol. Tired of losing paint though.

Ok. Got the package today, pretty quick actually. Everything in there was fine EXCEPT for the halo shell. I ordered camo and got see through red. In all honesty I couldn't care, the 'camo' was horrible and I'll simply paint most of the red, leaving a window to see my ammo. Lesson learned.
