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.

Virtue Paintball Spire The Virtue Spire is truly ground breaking technology in paintball loaders today. It can compete with any other loader out there and most likely beat it in performance.

Pros: Low profile, super light, high capacity
Cons: Does not feed when slightly tilted low on paint
I bought this loader and only used it for one day before trading it. The design is nearly 100%. It is a great loader in almost every way. I found myself with about 20 shots left with my gun slightly tilted and all the paint was trapped in the corner of the hopper and would not feed until I leveled out the hopper and tilted it back slightly. I did notice a slight ramp inside the Spire to help feed paint, but it could be slightly steeper. Maybe make it curved in future models. Or eve give the feed area more of a bowl shape inside to more force down those last few, sometimes critical, shots. Like I said, it is almost a perfect hopper. Just needs some fine tuning in the design.

This is hands down the best loader on the market right now. It's lightweight, has a higher capacity than other loaders out there, it's smaller than other loaders out there, the SF speedfeed is the best speedfeed out there, and teardown/maintenance is a breeze. Why would you ever go with any other loader?

I have used the spire ever since is got released and i have to say WOW .
First the design is really sexy and nice looking

Second The spire holds alot of paint compared to a rotor.

Third The thing never jams

forth The MOST LOVED THING BY ME is the large mouth feed . impossible to miss with pod

i myself have a virtue sf speedfeed and its the best thing on the market and it NEVER spills paint

All in all Amazing quality product Thank you Virtue

I have had my spire for about 4 months now and I absolutely love it. I had a like new rotor go down on me so I switched to a spire. It hasn't even had a hiccup since i bought it. The only downside is that it needs a spring ramp (which is an additional $10) and the speed feeds are much more expensive then speed feeds for other loaders.

I bought a black and green spire a month ago to get a free membership to my field. I absolutely love the low profile design and the easy to clean access.

However, my spire constantly pulses. I have tried every fix that is available and nothing seems to fix it. It absolutely kills the battery because the drivecone is always spinning.

The SF feed is amazing, and my spire has never jammed or had a hiccup. As soon as I get the pulsing issue fixed it will be a perfect loader.

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.

This hopper is my baby. I loved it ever since it came out of the packaging. It has never under performed and has always lived up to my standards.

I got this hopper coming into the 2014 season, i switched from the rotor, switching was the best decision of my paintball life. I play speedball on 12.5 bps and the spire is perfect for my play style. I am a front guy.

The speed feed is a little expensive but it is definitely worth it in the long run since you never lose any paint. I haven't lost a ball yet!

My only issue is that it popcorns paint a little but that's not a big deal, when you are in the game you don't think about it.

All in all, get this hopper, it never jams and is much better than the rotor.
