Odyssey Halo B A Review

Or just read it here:
This was the first force fed hopper I bought, although I had used a couple others before I bought it. I sold it a few months ago and now I use a Magna Drive. I owned this hopper for over a year, and it never broke on me once, it rarely chopped a ball.
- A LOT of upgrades are available for it, you have everything from rip drives, new shells, V35 board, APE board etc. etc.
- Now that some newer hoppers have started coming out (Magna Drive, JRNY, Torque) you can buy one used for "dirt cheap."
- Halo's looks good. They look good on just about any marker you put them on.
- Easy to use
-You can't "accidentally" turn it on without paying attention though.
- On the heavier side
- A lot of people say the feedneck and shell are weak, but I used mine for over a year and had no problems at all. This con is just something I have heard, although I HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED THIS PERSONALLY, I have heard of it a lot. Mine took a beating and kept on going perfect though.
-Without rip drive, you have to open the lid and try to force the drive cone backwards with your finger, which is no fun at all in a game.
-Battery life. The battery life is probably 8-10 cases. If the low battery indicator light comes on, change them immediately.
Read my review and find out if it would work for you, there are many choices out there. I like my magna more, but the halo gets the job done in most cases. Although, I prefer reloader B's over halo b's due to halo's using "eyes" and reloaders using sound activation.

I know it is fairly common, but as I had not experienced it myself (after about 1.5 years of use), I did not include it in my review.
