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.

The new Spire comes apart really easy to replace batteries, install speed feeds, clean, or just to check it out. with todays tournaments the hopper does not need to be able to shoot 5000 BPS it just needs to be about to feed, Never Jam and be easy to use. Thats what you get with the spire!

I got rid of my month old rotor for this jam proof hopper and it has lived up to all the hype. The huge opening to fill is awesome! Its very difficult to miss...its quicker to take apart than the rotor and easier. I cant say enough about this hopper. Hopefully they come out with more color options for this in the future. This is an amazing hopper i recomend this if you are upgrading or looking to switch.

I have a black/red spire to match my ego 8. What can i say, its a great loader. its light, holds a lot of paint, and has the smallest profile on the market. has never jammed on me. only problem is the cost. seems like way too much money for a hopper. but if it holds up to its promise of never jamming then it might be worth it in the end.

just picked this up used and it keeps up with my '13 reflex rail at 25 bps and it is gentle on paint like every other loader, but the g force sensors aren't the greatest because when the hopper gets half empty it keeps trying to auto feed because it thinks i'm out or low on paint which isn't the case now i'm gonna try some subtle tweaks to it and see what happens but in the case of the debate between spire and rotor, i'd say i prefer the rotor, but this spire might still surprise me

Upgrading from a RelB this is a nice upgrade for me. I like the auto-anti jam and I have messed up paint with the rip drive as often as it has saved me. It is smaller and much lighter, it uses half the batteries and lasts longer(huge plus when you're used to 6xAA's) and I love the tooless design after years of dealing with Halo screws and pins.

Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Pros: Never Jams, Low Profile, Customer Service
Cons: Quality Control, Quality Control, Quality Control
Pros:

Never Jams. Ever. Super easy to maintain... breaks apart in seconds. The speed feed is the best on the market. It's remarkable. Nothing else comes close. Low profile... the smaller the better. Holds the most paint. 200+ paintballs. Customer service is just about as good as it gets.


Cons:

Quality control. I have 2 Virtue Spires. The first was replaced after it just stopped working for no reason. Wouldn't even turn on, and it was working perfectly the weekend prior. The second was broken out of the box. Virtue sent me a new board. It didn't fix the problem. It's currently broke and I'll have to talk to them again real soon. Pulsating issues... spinning out of control type issues... ect. It's a real pain, and for the price you pay... this shouldn't be so reoccurring.


Thank god for their lifetime warranty and great customer service or I wouldn't even recommend this product. When it's working, it works amazingly. You just have to weed out the bad apples. One last piece of advice, avoid the spring ramp. It's a waste of $10. It doesn't do a damn thing. I cannot emphasize enough that you shouldn't buy the spring ramp.

Overall I give this a 4 out 5 when it's working. With the troubles I've had I give it 3 out of 5.

so i picked up a spire as soon as they came out. As soon as i got it i threw it on my axe and uncaped it to just mess around and see if the spire would actually keep up with 30 bps. about crapped my pants when i saw that i was shooting a steady lane of 30 bps over the chrono for a hopper and 2 pods. So its fast enough, to shoot the max ill ever shoot, 12.5. one thing i dont like is the fact the only speedfeed for it is the virtue crown, but i guess since its there loader there gonna only allow there speed feed. if exalt comes out with one this loader will be complete! as for value i see this loader holding its value very well
