Pros: Feeds fast, rarely jams, sturdy
Cons: Heavy
The rotor is really a great hopper. Personally, mine hasn't jammed yet. I haven't used it a whole lot, but none the less no jams yet. I picked it up for $90 with a speedfeed and its a great hopper to have. They are very strong. I saw a video of a guy burning, submerging and dropping his rotor and it was still going strong. I think it feeds 30 bps, but on average you wont ever shoot over 20 so thats fine. I'll also add how easy it is to unjam, you just pull the "shark" lever. It runs on 3 AA batteries and I have been using the same 3 for a while now and they have not run out. The one thing about the rotor, is that it is heavy. However, you will get used to it. I would recommend it for all types of paintball players.

Pros: GREAT on battery ( 3 aaa only)
Cons: the lid needs to be replaced after a while
this is a perfect hopper
No need for tools to take the dye rotor apart, so reliable and the battery life is ridiculous by that i meant half a year without changing it . ( i put lithium batteries after the first 6 months and i have not had to replace it yet)

the only problem is that the lid is made of plastic , just like your cheap pods would be, so imagine open and closing the same pod , after a while it just dont stay closed anymore ( because of the spring , and the fact that the plastic gets warned out).

But that should take a year before it happens. other then that this is an awesome hopper.

Also a good thing is that you can adjust the dye rotor to feed less balls per second so that it is smoother on paint ( some people dont know that )

The DYE Rotor, in my opinion, is one of the greatest products available in paintball today. Its sheer simplicity wins out over even my Revvy at times when choosing a hopper for the day. Efficient, durable and quick, I never think twice about loaning it out, because I know it can only come back in functioning shape.

My only real gripe is that it doesn't make a hollow sound when it is hit like other loaders. This is the only negative aspect that can't be fixed currently by upgrading.

Dye Precision Rotor I loved this loader for a while, but occasionally it has some jamming issues. My biggest complaint is the jamming, it occasionally will have issues especially in sandy areas.

This loader is extremely fast, very easy to pull apart (whether changing batteries, or cleaning the inside out), Rugged (can literally throw this thing, though not advised). This is a spendy loader but will do exactly what you want it to do and not have to worry about it falling apart on you. I have had this jam before but it hasn't happened in a long time. I think part of it could have been due to playing in very humid weather, that's where the V3 anti-jam lever is handy. Only other qualm is that it is a heavy loader, but this is the case with all force-fed, battery driven loaders... oh which brings me to the next good thing. The batteries are pretty good also, but i guess this depends on how many cases you run through your weekend.

Dye Precision Rotor The rotor is terrific. I love it so far. But if you play really lightweight, this isn't for you. It is about more weight than my actual gun. But it is a very great loader.

I got my rotor pretty much when they came out and have not regretted it one bit. If anything i take this loader for granted. I go months without changing the battery. These are practically indestructible. the dissemblance of the rotor is easier then any other loader could come close to. The led for the power button burnt out a few months ago but hey ive had this loader for 3 years or something like that i cant complain. people complain about the cost but in the long run this loader is without a doubt worth every penny and will outlast any other loader.
