In Topic: Your future dream is a shopping scheme

who knows, but the entire landskape of the game/ industry seems to be going through a lot of changes, not all good, actually a lot bad. I did notice however this christmas all the BE's at our local walmart had been purchased, which atleast gives me hope it's not tottaly dying out.

In Topic: Optical vs. Microswitch

I really like optical switches. I don't understand why they are so unpopular, but all my electros operate on a micro, but optical is really nice.

In Topic: torque vs reloader 2

lets compare them. as I recently had to decide between selling my Torque and my Reloader B here's my insight.

Torque: feeds fast enough for "experimental" paintball, constantly spinning magnet drive = good delivery of balls all the time, will consistently shoot 15-13-10 whatever. Light. easy to get to batteries. Always on means always on though, constant spinning. Eats batteries pretty bad, really.

Halo: Feeds pretty fast. has eye/ ear sensor for loading balls i.e. not constantly spinning. tons of mods out their. can run on 4AA (buy the pack at radioshack) 2x 9volts, or 6AA. Good battery life. AA batteries are easy to get rechargeable (thats what i do). Bad = heavy, finicky (setting modes, not too bad, but not great) I've read motor problems, haven't run into them though. with the reloaders you run into the problem it spins but doesn't actually load paint and ceases to spin since no eyes.

I kept my Halo because of economical reasons. I run it on 4AA's that are rechargeable.

honestly if I played tournies and got payed, I would have kept my torque and kept batteries in it. Halo offers a lot, and so does invert too, and with battery consumption, etc. I'd go for that, because torque really bogs down with the bats low.

In Topic: GA tanks unsafe??

I don't know about these specs and what not but I would think if they weren't following specs they would be reprimanded... and we would hear about it. It seems like they just took a bad hit by these other companies selling counterfeit products. I mean with something as ordinary as a regulator though they created sonmething that would be more appealing than others on the market which is cool. I thought they were interesting for sure. And by the way, I still use the same Custom Products tank I've had for several years now so I'm not a fanboy.
