Dye Precision Rotor This is, in essence, the perfect loader. I love the looks, it's easy to take apart and clean, it rarely jams, and doesn't eat batteries (only uses 3!). Overall, the perfect loader! BUY THIS.

Dye Precision Rotor I have had this hopper for a long time, I have started with the v1 rotor. Then worked my way up to the v3. I have never had a problem with it at all. A must buy for paintball

The rotor is possibly one of my favorite hoppers. it is durable and can take a beating and be thrown in the water and still run. The issue is it gets fussy with certain types of paint. i have had a few jams that took a while to clear although the new virtue arm helps. the other issue is a little dirt in the hopper makes it lock up as well. and now they are getting pricey but best hopper out there.

Not much to say about the Rotor. I've have the same one since the day it came out. Never had a problem whatsoever. A little pricey ( I bought mine before the price hike) but for the durability and and it being reliable, I guess it's worth it.

Dye Precision Rotor I <3 my rotors. However, I wish it wasn't necessary to install a SEED kit to ensure my peace of mind when using it.

Pros: ease of disassembly
Cons: anti jam
I bought the first gen rotor before the shark fin. I did like that the rotor was super simple to operate and field strip. My main complaint was the antijam was mostly useless. Pulling on the trigger did nothing to alleviate jams. When the improved part was released. Instead of sending the part to replace what I feel was a defective part, Dye insisted on charging for the part.

When it worked, it was a fine loader.

Pros: Built very well
Cons: Jams a bit
So I bought this loader when they first came out in 2009. I have owned about 6 different Rotors since then maybe more. We all know that when paintball sit out in the sun they expand just a little as the fluid heats up in the ball. Well this expanding sometimes makes the ball bigger then the feed tube and causes this loader to jam when it gets hot. other then that I dont have any complaints. Good on battery life, easy to clean. Easy to fix if the loader goes down.
