Halo Too shell repair

What kind of super glue or epoxy should I use to fix my halo with? Tried using LePage Speed set epoxy and that apparently doesn't work :/

Will something like JB Weld kwik plastic work?

You can try, but if one epoxy didnt work, others probably wont as well. You could try super glue, or some other glue designed for plastics. But, if i were you, id just get a new shell.

Hate to say, but get a new hopper.. My H2 shell broke after one season and the new shell I got was broken after just 2 weekends! I went from back play to more aggressive forward play so I was running a lot more with a loaded hopper.
No hopper hits, just stress from me running..
They are poorly designed, so even a new shell will break in short order.

also never use super glue on a hopper super glue was designed to repair human skin not plastic. Super glue eats most hopper shells

Most super glue formulas are safe for plastics now. There's not just one kind of superglue anymore. Go to your Home Depot and look. Locktite makes 5 or 6 different kinds, and that's not including gel.

You'd be better off trying to "weld" it back together with a soldering iron if you're not missing pieces. I've done it with pods before with success.

cans of stuff like this are usually pretty cheap would probably work pretty well if its only cracked. I don't know if i would trust it to hold pieces together if it's shattered though
