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 Virtue Spire is easily the ugliest super loader on the market, that being said, it's also a very good performing one.

It doesn't jam often, and when it does it's an easy fix. The lid is perfect, it's easy to open but won't open on you like a Prophecy would. The battery life is pretty good, so far at 15 cases off of a set of batteries. The profile is amazing, even lower than that of the Prophecy.

Stock, at $185, it's the best hopper. Although, if you want to throw a speedfeed on there, the $35 excuse just isn't worth it and the $45 super speedfeed is just too much to have to get a good speedfeed. My suggestion is to either wait for Virtue to lower the spring force speedfeed price or to wait for another company to release a new speedfeed.

Have had my spire for a few months with zero issues. The original crown speedfeed was less than impressive but I just received my new crown sf in the mail and have been nothing but impressed. I have yet to have a jam with this loader or at least I have never noticed one due to how it clears out jams. Very sleek looks with a small profile. Has no issues keeping up with all tournament bps setting. Very easy to take apart and clean and I have yet to replace the batteries even after 3 months

The weight is a very very noticeable difference. the hopper feels super light on top of my gun and hasn't jammed once. The only problem i can think of is that a speedfeed is a must with this hopper. The lid gets in the way and it can be tough getting used to when you havent used a speedfeed in a long time.

Pros: Looks, customer service, takes a lot of balls :)
Cons: Can be finnicky to set up out of the box
Picked up a used Spire for a good price and I'm loving it. It takes considerably more balls than a Rotor and it just looks better imho.

The one con I have though is when I got it home, I put fresh batteries in and did factory reset. I put a pod in it when on my Axe and started it, but the Spire wouldn't stop pulsing even though the hopper was full. Fixed this issue by increasing the stack tension and everything was fine.

All in all a great hoppper.

Traded my rotor+60 for a spire, worst trade of my life. Exalt (my favorite speedfeed brand) doesn't make a feedgate for the spire, the spring finger is over priced by about $20. If you hold your gun at the slightest angle it wont feed well. It eats up batteries really quickly. And ontop of all that, if you have half a hopper left the damned thing wont stop spinning, it's an over engineered, over priced piece of virtue. As always, just like their boards, some people like em', some people dont. Over all
