The rotor is still the most durable hopper on the market even after its release a few years back. The plastic mixture used on the shell can withstand anything a paintball field or otherwise can throw at it. All components are waterproof for easy cleaning and ability to play through the rain. My only gripe is that the motor assembly could be a bit lighter to cut down on the weight of the overall loader.

With the only downfall being the ridiculous pricing from Dye its still hands down one of the best hoppers on the market!

I got this hopper back in 2009 or 10 and it hasn't failed me. I stopped playing for the 2011 and 2012 season and sold most of my gear but the one thing I refused to sell was my rotor. Thankfully I kept it because i'm back to playing and it still does its job flawlessly. It has seen the chicago mudbowl(PSP chicago 2010) and every terrible weather event in between and it still works flawlessly. They have since added a few upgrades but I havent bothered to upgrade. It has never jammed on me while shooting quality paint. IF I shoot crappy rec paint it CAN jam but even then is very rare and thanks to its ease of taking apart you can fix a jam, broken ball, or any catastrophe quickly.

I really have had an awesome experience with my rotor. Bought it as a v3, upgraded to a virtue soft cycle arm, km spine feed, and adjusted the motors activation point to the middle of the switches ramp. Put the spring tension setting at 1.5 turns out from flush. Feeds at around 25bps, super gentle on paint. Amazing battery life, so much so it makes you wonder how other hopper's battery life could be so low. This thing hasn't jammed on me yet with the soft cycle arm and lowered settings. Great hopper!
