ShockTech HALO Speed Wheel
By Bill Mills - Photos by Dawn Mills - July 2005

Test Data

To find out just what effect the Speed Wheel would have, it was installed in a HALO loader for testing. The test loader was a HALO V35 loader, fitted with an S7 drive cone assembly and Speed Feed loading gate. It was powered by Powerex AA NiMH rechargeable batteries, freshly charged and allowed to cool before each test cycle.

WARPIG Ballistic Labs standard 10 shot burst testing was performed. The loader was fitted onto a microprocessor controlled Matrix LCD receiver, and cycled though 10 shot bursts at various rates of fire, beginning with 10 balls per second. Prior to each test the loader was topped off to a fill of 100 paintballs. The test paintballs were caught and decelerated in a paintball trap to ensure that each ball had been fed unbroken. For each loader configuration (with and without the Speed Wheel) three tests were performed, and if all 10 paintballs fed on at least two of the three trials the loader was tested again at the next highest rate.
