Pros: Battery life, consistency, ease of maintenance
Cons: Speed
I have been using my Rotor for about 2 months, and I love it. I have had the same set of batteries in it since I got it (~10 cases through it so far), and I haven't noticed any decrease in speed or consistency. The shell is ridiculously easy to take apart, and that is my favorite thing about it.

The only thing that I don't really like is that it seems to be capped at 18 bps or so, on gun. This really doesn't matter all that much, but I wish it was a bit faster. I will probably turn the tension up just a bit. And even though it tops out at 18 bps or so, it is still very consistent right up to the last ball. There is almost zero popcorning at all.

I also have the quick feed on it and it works great. The stock lid also works great, and is very easy to open and close, and you don't need to break it in, like you needed to with Halos.

I highly recommend the Rotor to anyone! 9/10

I was real hesitant to pick up a rotor. I heard a lot of mixed reviews about them. Some good, some bad. After my Magna crashed I picked one up.
I wished I did a long time ago. I have shot maybe 9-10 cases through this rotor with zero problems. Only problem would be me jamming paint into and it jamming up. I pull back on the anti jam feature and its smooth.
Mine hasn't crushed paint or not want to feed paint. I was concerned with the preset 50BPS wouldn't work with my gun, but the two work great with each other.

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
