This is by far the best loader I have ever used. I also got a speedfeed with mine so I saved about 30 bucks. (Just have to know where to get things for good prices ) anyways. The only problem with this loader is the jamming. I have teammates who have never had jams, but I have gotten stuck in games where I've had to take apart the top half real quick to unjam it and then close it back up and refill it. Not the best but still, the anti-jam is a great idea. Just needs some refining which I hope to get with the new red part of the Rotor.

This is worth its money. I've had it jam on me only 3 times in about 20+ games. When it did jam the anti-jam fixed it with one pull. People who say this thing won't feed 40 bps outa the box on a gun don't know what they are doing. Their gun won't shoot fast enough so they blame the "slow" if 20 bps is slow feed rates on the hopper. My gun won't shoot past 20-21 bps and anyone else who shoots a virtue can't either. Other boards may allow it but I know the rotor can outfeed just about every gun on the market. The only problems with this thing are what people are finding on the jams (I haven't had any problems) and the price. It will feed at the very least 40 bps on a gun. IMO best hopper out there. Easy to clean, fast, reliable, cool looking, waterproof, holds 200 balls.

I have used the rotor a couple of times now and have been very impressed with it. I am very impressed with the speed of the loader. It is incredibly fast for a force fed loader. the new Rotor has some features on it that I really like. I really like how the rotor takes apart. it is simple to take apart and break down. the rotor feeds really fast and can keep up with any gun at any speed. The only thing about it that I don't like is the price. it seems a little expensive for what you are buying however the loader itself is very nice and anyone using it will not be disappointed

Pros: FAST! DURABLE!
Cons: hard to see paint
Used this loader on my Aim Swift cocker (mech) and the loader NEVER skipped a beat. Swapped it onto my new Etek2 and the loader keeps up no problem. Cleaning is a SNAP. Literally. No screws to take off. Batteries are inside loader so you need to have it empty to access batteries, but still. VERY DURABLE. Taken nose shots and the loader isn't phased at all, versus going through multiple bodies on Halos and such. Only complaint is the windows that came stock are smoked out and it's kinda hard to see paint unless you have high contrast balls. Heard DYE is making replacement windows and such, and a speed collar is available now too. HIGHLY recommend this loader. No eyes or electronics or programming to worry about. Simple, easy to clean/disassemble. Let's put it this way...first outing with the loader I hastily put it back together (my own personal stupidity). Didn't seat the rotor correctly, and it started to chatter 60 seconds into a 20 on 20 rec ball game, I emptied out the paint, field stripped it, put it back together in under 30 seconds and was rockin out again in no time. I love it.

Update 2/20/2009...been running this on my Etek2, still haven't chopped, doesn't miss, very consistent. I'd be hard pressed to go to anything else, especially after seeing a Halo get blown apart from a nose hit. Cracked, battery door dropped out, wasn't pretty. Definitely happy with speed and durability of the Rotor.

Cons: A little heavier than others
I've had a rotor for well over 2 years now and they have never failed me. The things are extremely easy to maintain due to their quick dis-assembly and re-assembly. The hopper has an extremely nice and modern look to it just adding to the beauty of of (something Dye seems to do well).

I have had Jams but not many compared to other loaders that I have owned like Halos and sometimes prophecys. The fin on the rotor also makes it an extremely easy fix when you do get a jam.

The hopper IS heavier than others but not really noticeable when playing. The high-capacity shell allows you to carry more paintballs with not much of a hard switch: just pop the top and go.
