Virtue Paintball Spire 260 It is great for 2vs.1 when you are the one, I rarely need to reload even though Im throwing paint every where, win percentage on 2vs1 has definitely gone up. I like the size also, same height as the...

Cons: Read review
It is great for 2vs.1 when you are the one, I rarely need to reload even though Im throwing paint every where, win percentage on 2vs1 has definitely gone up. I like the size also, same height as the rotor 200 but a little bit longer in length, then again it is a 260. Only bad thing is even with the spring ramp, when you tilt it sideways like you're playing the Doritos the last ten paintballs won't go in.

Pros: Amazing look, feel, and durability
Cons: Really expensive
Got mine brand new after trying the z2 and the rotor, and I have to say this is without a doubt the better loader of the three. Withstands all terrain I put it through, never jammed on me, easy to maintain, clean, and take apart. Good on battery life. Was even better due to virtue's promotion of free speed feed if you bought a spire in November. Really this is an amazing loader. Tad bit more expensive than the competition but definitely worth it.

Love this hopper. It never jams, its light, its reliable, looks great and it holds a ton of paint. Its about the same size as a rotor (maybe a slight bit bigger). Its a little expensive because the battery life for me was a big draw back... but none the less, a good hopper

Virtue Paintball Spire 260 I love the way that it looks and the sleakness of the hopper, but the one thing about the 260 is that it is a lot bigger than the 200. It totally depends how much paint you go through for sure but I...

I love the way that it looks and the sleakness of the hopper, but the one thing about the 260 is that it is a lot bigger than the 200. It totally depends how much paint you go through for sure but I definitely recommend going for the spire.

Virtue Paintball Spire 260 Coming from and VL2000 and a semi working Halo, this thing rocks! I like that it's consistent in feeding and not only spinning when it's near empty. Keeps up with any semielectroairmarker out there.

Pros: Boosts Spire's capacity, customer service
Cons: Massive in size
I received 260 in a trade a month or so ago. After using a Spire 200 for awhile and traded it away for a Rotor I was excited to give the new version of the great Spire a try.

Sadly, when I received the hopper in the mail it was poorly packaged. Consequently the rear acrylic button housing was broken. Luckily though Virtue is a top tier manufacturer with excellent customer service and user friendly warranties. After one quick email explaining the situation they had a brand new housing in the mail and in my hands 3 days later!

My only complaint is about the sheer massiveness of the 260 paintball holding beast. As a snake/A/center player I prefer the tightness of the z2 but when I'm playing back as an anchor you can bet with confidence that I'll be rocking my Spire 260!
