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 Best loader I've ever bought. Easy to disassemble and clean. Only needs three AA batteries to operate. Profile is very small.

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

I first got the spire when i saw the massive loading port. im terrible at reloading so i thouht that will be awesome for me. well after speed feed is installed its about the same as any other loader. moving on

I have never once experienced a jam with this loader. last weekend it was raining and guys with rotors and the like were issues. i thought i was at a reggae concert with all the jamming going on. spire never gave me one bit of issue. Virtue has great custom support. I back them 100% and will continue to do so until im given a reason not to. Some people have issues with "popcorning" I too had this problem but i called up virtue and they sent out a replacement board no questions asked(except the ones like where do you live). i have 2 shells for this bad boy. a standard 200 and the new 260. One for pump and one for everything else. its too damn simple to switch between the shells. Your move Dye and Empire

Got my virtue spire about 2 months ago and fell in love with it from the start.

Light weight, very easy to use, very quiet, smaller profile, lighter then rotor.

I would take a Spire over a Rotor any day.
