Cons: Nothing really
I have used this hopper for a few months and I can't find anything negative to say about it. I got one ball break in the hopper, but I blame that more on the paint than the loader. There are many color and shell options available so if anyone wants a specific color there is more than likely that color to accommodate their wants.

For the price used now you can get a good V3 for around 140 or less (got mine for $100). I can't recommend this hopper highly enough. It has been through a bunch of tournaments already and has never let me down. Battery life is great. It is also damn near indestructible. You can't go wrong with this loader.

now i've herd from everyone that rotors jam blah blah blah. It actually caused me to not get one at first. I went with the prophecy. then, my prophecy took a dump (a bearing in the rip drive out of place, made the gears not match up = no paint feeding) and that was a PAIN to get fixed. halfway through trying to fix it i said screw it and bought a rotor.

now, first off i want to say, EVERY LOADER JAMS. if you think you have a loader that never jams or will never jam, dont kid yourself. that being said, there is such a thing as excessive jamming. IMO the rotor does not jam any more than any other loader. i've had my rotor since november and i've only had one really bad jam. after i got the jam out i couldnt even blame the rotor because that paintball that caused the jam would have done the same to any loader that had tried to feed it.

Overall my rotor is the best loader i've had. Way to expensive if you dont get it on sale (i got mine around christmas for 150) but all in all best bang for your buck. dye makes great stuff.

Dye Precision Rotor By far the best hopper on the paintball market today. So simple, always works, great battery life with only 3 Double A's. There isnt a better loader out there period. The Dye Rotor is the best

Dye Precision Rotor I have owned a DYE Rotor for over a year. I have used this thing as a bowling ball and it never came apart. It loads faster than any hopper I've ever used!! A+ if you can find one at a great price.

I bought one of these new a few months ago and i have been very disappointed, it jams at least 5 times a game and for someone with 1 hand un jamming sucks... you pay so much for something that works half the time. I bought an invert halo too, because i have owned hundreds of halos and they have never failed me...

so save ur money and get a halo too

Love The Rotor, I've had mine for about 2 years now. Lots of color choices and aftermarket upgrades and accessories.

If the paint being used is anything smaller than 0.689, expect the Rotor to jam frequently.

When I first got it the Rotor was amazing, light, durable and not that expensive (Before the price increase). 2 years later, after taking very good care of it, I think I'm either going to have to get a new one or a different loader because it likes to jam ALOT. It might be past its usage lifetime, but I've had Halos and Torques for years now too and they still work fine.

Anyways, back on subject, I really like the Rotor, best all around hopper i've ever spent money on, recommend getting one if you have the money.
