Dye Precision - Rotor Reviews
Dye Precision Rotor Not a bad hopper at all. Incredibly durable and decently reliable. Just hates cheaper paint.

Dye Precision Rotor After having used both the Z2 and Rotor I would have to say that they are nearly equivalent in all respects aside from price.

If you were able to get the rotor before the huge price jump you were lucky, they are currently overpriced but if you can pic one up used its a good value. The loader is built like a tank and is extremely easy to clean/fix if something goes wrong.

Awesome if you are playing psp 13.3bps it feed very consistently.
If you are playing on semi the hopper will cap out. Unfortunately I find it not as a halo with v35 or a vlocity.
This is my opinion so please let me know if anyone else is finding the same things.
I hope its me and not the hopper.

Cons- the hopper is fast free-falling, but if your playing a game it might stop on you, jams ALOT, the unjam trigger- works but not allways reliable in game, expensive


Pros- the hopper looks great, and its easy to clean and maintain, if you break balls in your hopper its fast and easy to clean while waiting for next game.

My opinion- i own a 06 nexus ego, it might just be they dont work well together, because of all the other reviews but - i dont recommend this hopper for anyone. i sujust if your chossing your better with an empire hopper (dye should not make hopppers!!!!!!!

Alright so I just got my rotor from Action Village a few weeks ago. I have a Virtue Board on my gun so I needed a hopper to keep up with it. So far I have not chopped one ball, even on full auto or auto response. The feed rate is awesome, and i love the no tool dissasembly. The hopper has worked great I am still on the same 3 batteries and have not yet been shot in the hopper because of the low profile.

PROS:
1. Dissasembly- the rotor is east to take apart making for much easier cleaning.
2. Low Profile- the low profile has prevented me from being shot in the hopper so far.
3. Feed Rate- how can you beat 50+ balls a second

CONS:
1. Price- 150 is a little much but worth it for the price.
2. I bought the blue rotor and it looks purple but once again no biggie.
3. Capacity is a little low I counted at roughly 190 paintballs tops, which is decent for how small it is but could be improved on.

You are going to give me bad ratings on this review im sure, but this is all you need to know, it sucks cock, no more consistant than a velocity, I am pumped for the jrny personally, much better design for current tournament paintball. This thing is a piece, unless you like jamming, ugly @$$ design, and hardcore over pricing for cheaply made matirials. Dont buy this hopper thats about all I have to say...

Pros: super fast and very durable
Cons:
I have had my rotor for a while and have had many hard practices and tournaments rain or shine and the rotor has made it through all of them easily. I have used velocity hoppers, halos, and prophesies, but the rotor is by far my favorite for the durability and long life with just 3 batteries. I have ran the DYE tests on it and yes it will not short circuit under water and you can throw it down or super heat it; nothing can stop this hopper . I also love how it has a very small profile if facing it for snapshooting. I LOVE MY ROTOR!!!!!
