Had a V3 Rotor.

Was good 75% of the time. Fed well, consistent, excellent battery life. The shell was very durable and could take quite a beating. Plus, the disassembly was very easy and could be done quickly in a matter of seconds.

However, when things went wrong, they went really wrong. My Rotor jammed if any ball you had was bad. Once it jammed, the anti-jam system is terrible. The fin doesn't rotate the rotor enough to actually get the foul ball out of the feed tray, it just shuffles it around. In addition, it couldn't feed reballs which was a big issue for me. I tried a variety of tweaks such as adjusting tension and a Virtue soft-cycle, to no avail. Considered a SEED kit, but decided it wasn't worth the extra money.

I think mine might have been a bad egg, other people at my field had no issues feeding the same paint through their rotor.

I Have had my rotor for atleast two seasons now, and I wont use anything else unless I am required by sponsorships. The loader is light, keeps up, and has a healthy holding capacity. The only problem Ive ever had was the back button jamming, but even that was a quick fix.

Used a rotor for the entire season last year with minimal problems. Only real issue I had was with junky paint. Got a lot of jams but with that stuff it was hard enuf getting out the barrel. The 3 AA batterys is a nice change from expensive 9vs and the battery life is great.

Overall no doubt the best loader out there for a competitive player. For casual baller there are certainly other options but when your in the pit last thing you need to find is a screwdriver to clean out your loader.

Pros: Fast loader with a simple design
Cons: A few jams with different paint
I wasn't sold on the Rotors when they were first released, because my VLocity worked fine and had never let me down. I used a teammate's at practice and was impressed enough that I later sold my VLocity and bought a Rotor. The ergonomics of the hopper help it feed efficiently, and I've never had a problem with it keeping up with my marker.

It has jammed on me, but putting in the Virtue center took away most of those issues, and the anti-jam does a good job of fixing jams when they do occur. I'm more inclined to attribute this paint than to the hopper itself. The design and tool-less disassembly make it easy to take care of. Though the price has increased, the Rotor is the best performing hopper on the market.

You do get what you pay for, the Rotor, while expensive, is my all-time favorite hopper that I have ever used. It is dependable, extremely easy to clean and looks great. Batteries last a shockingly long time, it has a manual jam-clear release and can be expanded with the high-capacity top. They are extremely durable and come in enormous array of colors and designs. Great product!

i bought my rotor used off someone here on pbn. It was his backup so it was in pretty good condition. Personally i love the styling of the rotor it is one of the cleanest looking hoppers on the market it is probably the smallest hopper but still hold around the same amount of paint as any other. The rotor is pretty much unbreakable unless you just like curb stomp the s**t out of it for 10 minutes. Its waterproof, fireproof, never shorts out, and you can drop it on the ground from like 6ft tons of times with no problems. Anyway...i love this hopper. If you are the type of person who like to buy things new then i would suggest trying to break that habit cause the 2012 will run you $199.95 new and the older ones at $189, $179, $169. I urge you to find one here on pbn you can get them from like new at $150 or less and good condition around $100 or less if you're lucky.

Final thoughts: GREAT loader, not so great price.
