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.

Once the spire came out, i was blown away by its looks. Some people say it looks like a boat, but it doesnt bother me. It holds more paint than a stock prophecy or rotor. and performs the same as either of those. My spire never jams up on me and feeds great. Youre definitely getting your moneys worth buying one of these. especially with virtue's great customer service.

Pros: Sleek profile and top tier customer service
Cons: Older ones needs board upgrade, popcorning
When I started playing again the first hopper I picked up was the Virtue Spire. I had previously used Halos and Empire Reloaders exclusively. The Spire is an engineering triumph when it comes to quick disassembly/reassembly and routine maintenance. The quick release tray has me speechless due to its extremely easy to manage internals when compared to every other hopper in the industry. All of the electronics and mechanisms are tightly packed into one half inch tall trey.

However I did have several problems with the Spire. Having purchased a used one in B/S/T I had pre-7.0 hardware. For 3 months of use the drive would never stop running due to constant popcorning. Consequently the hopper would be irritatingly distracting when trying to focus on your game and communication with your teammates. Luckily I played World Cup where Virtue had their booth set up. They quickly and easily rectified the issue. From then on the Spire worked quite well.

Pros: Tool-less (dis)assembly, Simple
Cons: Speedfeed
I love the Spire. The only other loaders I've owned were an Invert Halo Too and a BT Rip Clip so this is my first end-game loader. I put about 5000 rounds through it and not once did it jam or break balls. While that's not a lot, it is still good. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a high end loader.

The one complaint I have is the speedfeeds. You can't just get a thing to go over the lid, you have to get an entirely different top part for it. And it's expensive, about $45.

9/10 Amazing loader.

We got picked up by Virtue to shoot the Spire for 2013 & 2014. We were happy to work with them considering that many of us had issues with the Dye Rotor in the humidity. The easy maintenance and large capacity of this loader make it the best on the market.

Virtue Paintball Spire I would recommend getting the new internal "shelf" that has the tilt to push the last few balls towards the motor.

Purchased new. Holds way more balls than the rotor. It feeds via vibration so you can't do a drop test, but dont let this fool you. It will feed just as fast as the rotor. The spire is durable, and holds alot alot more paint than the rotor. Over all I love this hopper. The only problem I would say is the price. It should be priced more around the 150 range.
