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.

In my opunion this is the best loader out there! I've owned/own alot of loaders and this is my go to. I have never had it jam on me once, can't say that about any other loader i've owned.

It's light, compact, quiet and never jams. I've nevre had to use it but I hear Virtue has great customer service as well.

Buy this loader!

The Virtue Spire!

As a previous Empire and Rotor owner, this hopper blew both of them out of the water. It's light weight construction, sleek design, and durability/reliability has lead me to believe that this is one of the best (if not THE best) hoppers on the market at the moment. After picking it up in May of 2015 for a great deal, I have never looked at any other loaders, and for good reasons. For anyone looking to get a loader, I would suggest this being your first look. Have been using for 4 months now and have NOT HAD ONE JAM!! My other loaders would jam frequently, but not the spire! My hat goes off to Virtue on this one. Along with purchasing a spire, you also receive integrity-filled customer service from Virtue themselves! Although my loader came with the new spring ramp and updated board, others have told me that the process was a breeze! Overall? Get the Spire or the Spire 260, you will not be disappointed!

I absolutely LOVE the spire after only having it for about two months; IMO it is better than the Dye Rotor. I used to think that I'd never stray away from using my workhorse of rotor but the Spire made me convert. The spire is lighter, holds more paint, looks better (imho), and feeds a lot better than the rotor.

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

Pros: Durable, Light, reliable, sleek, no jams, reballs
Cons: Paint settles in front, sometimes sputters
All in all, a great loader. Just one complaint. When you start to get low on paint, the spire starts to sputter because the paint isn't getting into the feed neck. The pulsing then becomes more erratic and sometimes paint will collect in the front. I would recommend buying the spring ramp to avoid this problem and the speed feed to help increase your reload speed. Definitely a great loader to buy. Never jams and feeds super fast. Super durable as well, I have put it through hell and back, no issues yet. I would definitely recommend this as a high end loader purchase. Buy it with the spring ramp and speed feed, you won't be sorry!

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.
