I finally got my hands on one of these and I was worried that the bigger shell would be a hindrance but luckily it isn't. Smaller than my rotor, easier to disassemble (just my opinion), many color options, can be had for a good price if you look around, backed by a company that will take care of you, installing a speedfeed is ridiculously easy, and many more pros.

I was kind of iffy on whether I should get one, but after using one, I don't see me using anything else

I have owned my spire with speedfeed for about 3 months now and I have no reel complaints other than the lid. Not mine but I have seen other spire break or get shot from being bunkered and the lid breaks. But other than that this is by far the best loader I have ever used.

Virtue Paintball Spire 260 Great loader. Had an issue with mine constantly rotating, sent to virtue. They fixed it and had it back in 1 day and hooked up some cool schwag. Love the loader. Small profile, excellent design.

Had a black 260 for three years. ****ed it up by incorrectly taking it all the way apart for fun (even took the board off ) and now a wiggly tabs been taped down.

It's been years and it's never jammed or broke a ball.

Quiet.

Status lights and sounds do their job.

Very durable with a tough feedneck.

Easy maintenance.

Batteries last so long I don't even bring spares with me like I do for my marker.

Design is low profile, not wide, and can get you bounces against less than top notch paint.

A lot of colors schemes to chose from in addition to color accent kit's being made available.

As it comes with no additional upgrade's it's simply better than every hopper out there. Which may be why HK's looks a lot like it, still even after two years of the spire being out before their's they couldn't copy the performance.

Here I'm just going to talk about what you wanna upgrade it with. Crown SF speed feed's expensive but worth it if you want the best. Ramp's not necessary but having those last 10 paintball's feed as well as the first 10 is kinda nice. Virtue is my favorite company in paintball by far. Their products (Virtue not Mac Dev and Bunker Kings) are either THE or among the best in their category and they don't pull any bull on their customers.

I own both the 200 and 260 and I will never use a different loader. Hands down the best loader I have ever used.

The feed ramp is genius and the virtue crown speed feed is the best speed feed I have ever owned. I love that it doesn't sag and takes any kind of punishment like a champ.

the loader as a whole is damn near indestructible and the feeding system is extremely reliable. It isn't a battery hog and the feed rate is unmatched compared to any other loader on the market.

Incredibly easy to disassemble and clean. I love the tool-less design.

I would definitely recommend this product.
