Boosted HALO
By Bill Mills - Oct 2005

Back to Boosted HALO Review

Test stand data

Testing performed with a Matrix LCD body directly wired to a microprocessor based controller.  The Matrix was fired in 10 shot bursts with no barrel, into a catch box to count and verify the paintballs.  DraXxus Hellfire paint was used for testing, with the hopper loaded with 100 paintballs.  At each rate of fire level, the Matrix was fired in a 10 shot burst, and the number of successfully fed and fired paintballs was recorded.  If, after three trials at a given rate of fire, at least two resulted in all 10 paintballs being fed, the loader was tested again, at the next highest rate of fire. 

Boosted HALO using only the Lithium Ion battery pack.

Notes: No paintballs broke during the testing, and there were no mis-fed balls in either mode, prior to the failure level.  The repeated failure pattern of 8 and 9 ball strings, followed by a 10 ball string at the failure level for both settings seemed unusual and prompted the testing of two more 20 ball per second strings in Boost mode, the first of which fed 6 balls and the second of which fed 9.
