The Virtue® Crown™ "lid-less" feed system makes reloading easier than ever while. No more opening the lid. No more paintballs spilling out or feeders popping off. The Crown's patent pending hinged elastomer design allows paint to flow freely into the hopper while preventing paint from coming back out -- no matter how hard you shake it or how hard you dive. The standard Crown requires you to applu a slight amount of pressure with the pod. For an even faster feed, requiring no pressure from the pod, see the Ultra Soft Crown.
Guaranteed to Feed Faster & More Securely
The Crown for the HALO includes 3 parts: Locking Ring, Crown, and the Extension Collar. Players who want the lowest possible profile do not need to use the Extension Collar, and can simply attach the Crown to the hopper and lock it in place with the Locking Ring.
However, the Extension Collar offers a minimal height increase, while increasing paint capacity and improving reloading performance.

The Crown is available in two types of Elastomer. Neither is "best", decide based on your style of play.
Offers a quick reload with NO chance of paint coming out. Rigid, but flexible Elastomer lets NO balls out, even with the most vigorous shaking. Can be used without the Extender for a LOW PROFILE on the HALO / MAGNA, but for best results with LOW PROFILE setups use the Ultra Soft Elastomer (see below).
Ultra Soft Elastomer:
The fastest reload with a low chance of paint coming out. Ultra Soft Elastomer keeps paint from coming out under most conditions, but vigorous shaking may lose a few balls. For LOW PROFILE on HALO / MAGNA it’s better to use the Ultra Soft Elastomer (see below).
Option (included) Extension Collar:
The HALO / MAGNA have a shallow basin near the drive cone, so an Extension Collar is provided for a more consistent feed. The Extender also allows you to pack an extra 20 balls into the hopper before the start of a game. For LOW PROFILE setups without the Extender, we suggest using the Ultra-Soft Elastomer Crown. If using the Crown without the Extender, a slight downward tilt while reloading yields the best results. The downward tilt is only needed/helpful if you are not shooting while reloading. If you are shooting and reloading keep your gun up and the Crown will feed great.

Installation is very easy. Remove the stock lid (if you're not planning on using the lid again, simply break it off). Snap the Extender to the HALO after removing the stock lid.
