This is my "go to" loader. Whenever I need it to feed paint it does. The only time I ever had problems was in 95 degree heat with 90% humidity. The paintballs were so soft only a revvy could feed them. Later we found out that Pro Caps had screwed up the shell formulation and the balls were basically trash. Even though the Rotor tried it's best to feed them.

Pros: Durable, Great speedfeed options
Cons: Jams occasionally
Ive owned atleast 30 of those hoppers (no exaggeration). Ive probably been using them for over 2 years as well. It is probably the best all around hopper out there. It does occasionally jam, but the battery efficency it has on it is great. I did switch to a Z2 for a little bit, but I noticed that the speedfeeds for the rotor, especially the exalt, are far beyond the quality of the z2s, mostly because they dont open when you superman slide. Overall it is great all around hopper and I will continue to use it unless something drastically changes.

Dye Precision Rotor Great Loader, Will only ever use a Rotor! (unless you play with reballs, It can have problems. I find if you lube the balls it works much better)

The price has gone up on the Rotor. I think because people will still pay a higher price because it is the best loader on the market.

The plastic on this is best in the industry. Feed rate is the fastest. Best part of the loader is ability to take it apart in less than 10 seconds.

Minor problem is the loader sometimes jams up with bad paint, but then u can just use the anti jam. Pretty minor, maybe there is an aftermarket part to fix this..

Pros: see below
Cons: see below
appearance:In the past any time a new hopper came out, i'd think to myself "heh, that looks weird." and it would take me a while to get used to the image of a gun with a given hopper sitting on top of it. With the rotor I immediately thought it looked good and "natural" on top of a gun.

performance: It feeds as fast as any event will ever let you shoot. While I've never personally experienced any real jamming issues, I've heard it exists. Its a bit on the heavy side too.

reliability: the thing works, flat out. Batteries last forever, no part has ever broken in my rotor or any of my friends. You just press the button and its ready to feed paint.

value: in the past they were fairly priced, but now days it is getting a bit ridiculous. I'd definitely suggest buying used over getting one of the real expensive new ones.

Dye Precision Rotor The dye rotor is fairly consistant shooting under 20 bps. It cannot reach the advertised 50 bps. overall it is a good loader.

I have a V2 Rotor with Sharkfin (basically making it a V2.5), which essentially got rid of all the jamming problems from the V1 Rotors. This loader is one of the easiest to use loaders on the market. Tools free disassembly is a sinch and operation is a breeze. Though some might be upset that it has only one mode, but it gets rid of the all the crazy settings that it could have. Unlike Halos and Prophecys, the feedneck is all one piece and is much more durable than their rivals. Overall, one of the best loaders on the market.
