Arrow modding STOCK Virtue Spire speed feed fins

the 15-minute ghetto Spire speedfeed mod:
For those who dont want to spend $25-$30 for the HK Epic.


1) Stock Virtue speedfeed and top:


2) Stock Virtue speedfeed with all longer fins:


3) Tools used:


4) Cutting out the middle of long fin, cut out the 'V', and cutting all the way up to the locking notch. Comparison to original fins

5) cutting it even further near the locking notch, much more flexible


5) installation:

Yeah, IMHO, works alot better than stock. The HK Epic mod feels/looks a little nicer, but youre also spending another $25-$30.
I have both the HK feed and this mod on my spires.

Might as well give it a try.

Good job on personallizing your speed feed. It looks really cool, might have to do this to mine!

I did mine the same way a few weeks ago but kept the small fingers and cut them as well to allow more room in between the top part of the lid and the motor that sticks up. I put a small finger on the top of the lid also to gain a little more clearance between the fingers pushing down and the motor. Seems to work pretty good.... And it's free.

Mod updated.
Cutting a bit more this time near the locking notch. Works even better.

Can someone get a video of dumping paint in and shaking the hopper upside down for proof?

I use a combo of small and big fingers that are both cut. With a pod in hopper if I turn it upside down the most I've lost is 3 balls. It works much better than stock imo.

Here's a picture of it after I tried to shake the balls out from the side. (only one fell out)


Here it doesn't really show anything, but did let all of the paintballs in without having to shake the pod or loader.



Here it shows the loader upside down.

The new virtue sf (spring finger) is out now. Looks promising. Cutting mine works fine but I'm still gonna do the $10.00 upgrade to the sf if the rumor is true.

Did this to mine. Seems to work pretty good. Left a pod overnight in it, and it works better. Prob will leave a pod in it again
