When every new owner of a Rotor posts a thread like this you would think that maybe people start to get the idea that Rotors are junk. When you have a dozen people defending them and a thousand people damning them, I think it speaks for itself. I borrowed one yesterday for my Automag RT only because I couldn't find anything else. Show 10 rounds from it, Valken Crusade, and can you guess what happened?

My rotor has been flawless through 8 cases on my new Ego's. Im still buying a spire tomorrow though. Just seems like the Spire is a much better hopper with its reviews so far.

Adjust the tension out 2-3 turns, still shoots 12.5 no problem only jams on really ****ty paint on hot days.

Yeah but you hear that all the time. "Only jams on ____ ____ _____". Fill in the blanks. You never hear that about a Halo or similar. And the truth that no Rotor owner wants to hear is that, on a gun, a Halo is faster than a Rotor. Drop tests are 100% useless. A Halo has a faster, stronger, higher voltage motor than the Rotor. It doesn't bog under load as much as the Rotor.

i friggin' love my rotor.

when i first bought it i didn't have any problems with jamming. wanted to use it for reballs and got a sweet deal on some upgrades so now it has a virtue 2.0 board and rf synced to my gun. uses the rotor arm tension sensor and rf so it only spins when you shoot the gun. works amazing with paint, the tension setting is 1.25 turns out from flush, and also has the virtue soft cycle arm, so very gentle on tourney paint.

reballs i use the stock rotor arm, and it works amazing. the second you pull the trigger and if the tension on the arm doesn't change it reverses the motor and clears the jam instantly, pretty sick.

never buying another hopper again, it has everything i want, and for how much it's worth now that's a good thing, lol.

Yea and what about that the 1000s that love them? Its the same thing with Prophecies too, I dont know how you dont see this.

Even I am a Prophecy guy, that is my main loader, but the Rotor is a great loader, I have one.

This is what I am talking about though, turning it into a VS thread, fanboys.....

OLD FEEDBACK!

Why do people do this wanna-be hk thing? I mean hk people dont even play paintball, they just whine and start drama while wearing the ugliest stuff. Seriously you find light blue and pink to be attractive colors for your parents 1500 dollar investment (your gun/marker)? If you want to whine keep it off the field and save it for the internet; O wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO! Haha, if you don't play then don't whine.


I want your G6r parts and upgrades, sell them to me, because you wont get anything for them if you sell/trade them with the gun.

The Rotor is great when it isn't jammed. Prophecies, I've seen very little bad reviews.

Fact is that Rotor "fanboys" squawk every chance they get when a "Rotor Jamming" thread pops up. You'd think by now that people would be smart enough to buy something else.
