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!

Dye Precision Rotor I bought my Rotor V2 and I loved it. Never had a problem jamming, the battery life on it is wonderful. Its a good product and players should look at it to be the hopper of choice.

I bought one almost three years ago at Huntington Beach, and they are by far the best hopper.

Pros:
Only 3 AA batteries compared to the Prophecies 4.
Strips faster, and less complicated than a Prophecy
More durable than a prophecy

Cons:
Capacity
Price

If you use quality paint, you won't have a problem with jams, no matter what hopper you're using.

its better than a prophecy, but maybe not a z2. i own two of these, currently. i love how easy they are to clean and maintain. and they are so fast.... when they work. i've had some jamming problems with mine, usually on very hot days. sometimes the paint will stick in the loader, because its thick black plastic, it holds the heat in to much. and if you get too much dirt in it, that will make it jam, too. if you keep it clean, you likely wont have any complaints.


other than the price

Dye Precision Rotor Awesome loader. I had very few problems with it and when I did it was due to paint. When I had a couples problems on the field it was super easy to take apart and fix the problem quickly.
