I own a few Rotors in different colors and all of them have worked perfectly. The Rotor has a very easy one button operation and the tooless disassembly was a hugh selling point for me. Color swaping parts is cool and makes your Rotor feel custom. The biggest drawback was and still is the price. I see no reason to charge near $200 for a toy basically. But, that didn't stop me from buying one for each of my guns!

All in all this is a great hopper. You can drop it from the roof of your house and it will not break (I've seen the tests, and this is true, but I personally wouldn't do it.). When it detects a jam it will stop, and there is a pull tab at the bottom of the hopper used to clear the jam. Who needs the tech specs though? This bad boy can keep up with any gun and will not let you down, especially with the easiest tool-less disassembly and re-assembly out there. solid 9 of 10, because no hopper is perfect.

Try to get one not from the first generation though, they had some problems with jamming and reliability.

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.

Pros: Tooless, 3 AA's, Looks great
Cons: Expensive, Jams with low quality paint.
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.

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.
