I recommend the Empire Reloader 2. It's sound activated, magnets hold the lid open and closed, and it's under $50.00.

It means that it only loads when the marker fires. It picks up the noise/vibrations from the marker, and loads every time the marker shoots. Also, with non-sound activated loaders like a Halo B, it's eyes can't pick up dark colored shells, so that messes up the loading. And when a sound activated hopper is empty, it won't keep on trying to load. When a non-sound activated hopper is empty, it will keep on trying to load (the wheel will just keep on spinning).

I think they would be pretty much even. The Apache is sensor activated and it feeds a little faster than the Reloader 2. I have both and I actually prefer the Apache because of it's lower profile. I also had the paddle on my Reloader 2 break right after I bought it. Chalk it up to bad luck. Anyways, I would suggest the Apache over the Reloader 2, but the Reloader is still a good hopper.

Why not get the BT Rip Clip, its basically a Halo that has been built specifically for the BT

^ I wouldn't want a tumor hanging off the side of my marker anyways...

Then again, I am not a fan of rip-clips/cyclones anyway, but still.

As said Reloader II, or apache.

You can also find used Halo B's and Reloader B2's around on forums for around 60, maybe less if you are lucky.

Wrong. My Halo picks up dark shelled paint fine.

I also like the Empire Reloader II. I still prefer gravity hoppers, but my experience with the sound activation has been really good. I almost forget that it operates on batteries.
