if i remember correctly, the hopper hears the gun cycle and then feeds. if you tap the hopper hard enough with your fingers, it will feed.

Well, lets hope that the bolt hitting the ball doesn't create that much sound :D....might be a little detrimental to the ball.

The B2 and the B and the A simply have a microphone of sorts that registers the sound signature of a gun being fired. You will have no issues with a hopper like this. The B2 is adjustable such that you can set how sensitive the mic is. Pretty fancy stuff really.

When you power on the hopper it "listens" during its start up. It creates a "background" noise level. Anything that is significantly higher than its recorded background will trigger the hopper to rotate. Even a high level yell will work.

it's a fair price in good condition. I think thew Invert Halo too is like 50 -60 new and it is essentially a reloader/halo b...sound activated etc. it's what i use and i have no feed issues...might want to add a rip drive if you don't have one already....to clear the very occasional jam.

Hee hee, sorry 'bout that g-funk. I just love answering questions...its the engineer in me.


Oh and as far as the deal Bushwiick. Without trying to sound harsh, I feel as though you paid too much for the hopper. It sounds like the pieces are pretty mismatched. The B2 boards, while better than the B boards, are still pretty old. You could have got a B2 with all matching parts for around $35 in my opinion. Before the Invert Halo Too (basically the rebirth of the Reloader B2) came out, B2's in good condition w/ speed feeds were selling for around $60. This was also before Prophecies and Rotors came out.

Once the Rotors, Profecies, and Halo Toos came out the prices of the B2's and Halo B's came down considerably.

Now all this is to simply answer your question if you got a good deal. I wouldn't have paid that much for a hopper as you described it. If you like it then hey roll w/ it. Heck, $15 is two meals at Wendy's so I think all will be right w/ the world Mr. Green
