The Virtue Spire is the next generation in loader technology with a shot activated sensor, jam-proof feeding system and a tool-less design that can be taken apart and reassembled in seconds. Not only is the Spire an aggressive, lightweight, and compact design, but it also holds more paint than the leading competitors.

I haven't had my spire for long but I have already fallen in love with it.

It hasn't failed me yet and has become my favorite loader. I love the ascetics and its innovative design. I love the speed feed and the large hole it gives to feed through.

I am not however a fan of the cost. It seems really expensive. Especially for the cost of the only speed feed on the market that you have to buy separately. The only other thing I don't like but that has not become a huge problem yet is the small feeder neck. I have heard of problems with paint being to big to fit through the loader. I have not had that problem yet because I am from the Midwest and we have smaller sized paint. The only other problem it causes is that ocasionally it is hard to keep it snug and straight in the feed neck clamp.

Virtue Paintball Spire Overall I've had my spire for almost a year and a half. I love mine other than the battery life not being amazing and the spire doesn't always feed as well as I want

Virtue Paintball Spire Really nice loader! The only problem with it is that it wouldn't detect shots on my luxe and it wouldn't feed.

I personally do like the spire over the rotor but the spire does have some annoying things about it that make me consider switching back to a rotor.

Pros: Looks great, Doesn't Jam (unless your batteries are low), Large mouth for feeding paint, very easy to change lids.


Cons:
1) You have to mess with the settings to get the pulsing to stop when your spire is full of paint
2) The battery life doesn't last very long unfortunately
3) The fingers on the spire do wear away. A teammate of mines spires fingers completely tore off after a couple months of owning it, and I can notice mine are slowly wearing away as well

I thought this was the most amazing loader when I first bought it.

A couple weeks in mine started acting funking and developed a non-stop pulse whenever the loader was turned on. It used more batteries than a meth cook. lol.

Ended up trading it for a Z2+ $100.

Bought this on more of a curiosity whim a few weeks after they were released. At the time I loved my rotor, said rotor has since been sold. It really comes down to three simple points for me: lid changing system, the tray housing everything, and the spire drive. Feeds reballs like it is it's main job, brittle paint glides along without a problem. The lid system to me is a dream. Granted you could do the same type of thing with a rotor but not for the same cost.

The only complaint I can think of is from time to time if running through a full hopper without moving side to side it will always seem to have about 20 balls sitting in corners. Moving any direction fixes this, but it never happened with my rotor.
