I would imagine the price of the loaders he listed...

Out of these I would take the Halo hands down personally.

skip the vmax entirely

the fasta and pinokio and nearly identical internally, so they will operate about the same, just the pinokio is more expensive, but it does hold more paint

Halo's are great overall hoppers as well, and parts are extremely easy to find. plus its covered by empire so if you ever have a problem, send it to them and they will fix it for you

for me personally, its between the fasta and the halo
both feed well, they're about the same in terms of disassembly, price is about the same, but the fasta does hold slightly more paint

i'd go with the halo though because it is backed by empire
and its rock solid and reliable

In all fairness, the Fasta is also now backed by Kee

 

But if it were me I'd take the Halo.

I personally can't use anything other than a Dye Rotor, although mine was brand new for only $150 just because of the color scheme (green/black graphiti look). Buttttttttt of the choices you listed i would have to say the Halo B loader because i have seen a lot of people with every type of gun use that loader along with the other Halo loaders. It works great. Kinda depends how much BPS you want to put out and what features you like to have.

Interesting.  

 

How can you outshoot a Halo?  

 

TS- are you buying new or used?  

 

Pinokio's are 99 at ANS right now for the old model.  The new model is the speed which is at $150.

 

You can also get a Scion for $99.  It's in a Halo shell but has the Z2 drive system that has auto unjam.  Personally I have never had my Halo jam or not keep up with any of my markers.

 

Halo B's are $99.

 

The fasta is in the $70 range which isn't bad at all. 

 

The Prophecy Z2 is $129 for white and camo models.  

 

 

I had an original Prophecy and after many years the side shells broke.  I called key and they sent me new side shells and the V2 kit.

"Cant" use anything else is a huge exaggeration unless you mean due to sponsorship. Nobody should be shooting more than 15BPS these days which doesnt come close to outshooting the Halo.

Halo or Pinokio.  But if you were to buy used Dye Rotor, Empire Prophecy Z2, or Virtue Spire.

I've used a lot of loaders and yes the Rotor is the best IMO. The Fasta (even 9v version) is a great little loader and inexpensive. I also have a couple of Viewloader VLocitys and got them cheap too. Halo Too's are nice, heavier than the Rotor, but still nice.

Halos and Rotors are heavy as fuck, and it's very noticeable when you've used other loaders. I'd go with the Pinokio. I liked mine. Got it used, bend sensor doesn't work anymore but its been beat to hell. Haven't played in ages because of college so I haven't gotten around to fixing it, but their customer service is really great. I also like the Fasta and the Vmax 2. All three are lightweight and will feed 12.5 bps. Only downside to the Vmax 2 in my opinion is the lid.

Thanks I will either get a halo or a fasta. I am not getting a rotor because my brother is getting it and I am a twin so I dont like getting the same thing as he does. I am thinking about the v max 2 because it is new and I was going to do a review on it but I think I'll just get a fasta or a halo

Well if you don't want a Rotor just because your twin will get one, it's a silly argument. Rotors takes the cake imo, I would not use any other high end hoppers period.

That being said I also own a magna, 2 old school revvy, and a variety of limited paint hoppers. But these hoppers are for special use, ie. Pumps, mechs, and the magna in the rare instance the rotor doesn't work

I'd go with the Halo or the Fasta, but imo the Halo wins just because of Kee's CS alone. Those guys fixed my fried Proph board (user error) for free and even shipped it back ($15 value).

I'd go with the halo I like mine and it is simple to use.

Just go with the pinokio, mine never jammed, its just impossible to out shoot it and why would I want to anyway, its amazing on batteries and not very many people use it (atleast at my field) which makes it different And unique lol.and its cheapest out of all the super loaders (I have the classic.)

Before you jump to the point where you have to slam me on my opinion... I CAN"T use any other than Rotor because of it's quality. Not bec i need to shoot over 15BPS... Most places i go it is 12.5BPS cap. I bought it brand new for $145 because of the color scheme (but it matches my gun color to a point so win win). To what the other guy said "its heavy as fuck"...It's all hard plastic with little to no metal except a few screws and the battery area. So it is incredibly light and super EASY to field strip. You don't have to worry about breaking it unless you for some reason decide to smash it into a rock... So don't slam me for my choice of hopper. I have the money for quality and that is what i got....

I agree that the Rotor is not much heavier than other loaders. Its only a couple ounces heavier than a Spire and its not like youll notice that on a full setup.

Depending on what field you are using it for would also be a thing to keep in mind. My filed is rec ball, and every like 5 games they do scenarios (cap dom, defend/attack). When I go into these games (pinokio btw) I put on the long nose extension and don't have to reload for a good while. One person even gave me props because I had him pinned and he couldn't move for the last minute of the game. My friends want to do some speedball and that would be good for a back player, but I'm a rusher and thinking of investing in the speed as it has a smaller profile.
