Looking briefly at the design, I think it's like a slip/ratchet mechanism. Under normal operation, everything is connected and things rotate as expected.

When enough force is encountered though, the plastic pieces will slip and disengage, and the mechanical energy that was tensioned somewhere in there is allowed to come back out as a reverse motion. So the motor itself never has to reverse, it only goes forward.

Hence you can't overtighten the thing or it won't disengage properly.

Seems like a very clever design.

If I correctly read the Sweedish guys post on PBNation - the guy that invented this also invented the Rotor and sold that patent to Dye. He originally wanted to do this for the Rotor, but IP was in the way so Halo it was...

Brittle paint demo.
In our tests, it was not the loader that broke the paint. It was the air pressure from the marker so we had to reduce the pressure from hyper3 in-line regulator to be able to shoot the balls without barrel break.

Thanks for the update. Was the gun still chrono'ing at 285fps with the reduced pressure?

Xeon Paintball demonstrates how easily you clean the Halo series loader. Both the loader and drive cone. No tools required with Smartguide TL installed in your loader. Compared with many other new loaders is this solution often easier to clean.

I must warn you, this is a pretty boring video but it shows what I have tried to describe earlier.

No. I tried all possible settings, and barrels, but had to keep in-line regulator pressure less than 285 fps.

The paint has been stored in the winter and summer temperature in Sweden for 3 years and has become ridiculously fragile.

Will you be able to upgrade your ordinary Smart Guide to a TL version?
