I don't know, virtue products are known for being quality. I have had virtue boards and grips and they are usually on the cutting edge for gear. Course there are cheaper versions, there will always be cheaper versions.

The wonderful thing about this market of paintball we all looooove is that there is that diversity will always be there. There will always be that super high end, really nice gear that only some can afford, and then there is the mid range but competition for the high end gear that most people will be able to afford
And then there is the low end for people who just want to ball a weekend or two a year and don't care to have keep up maintenance or keep up with the pros.

I applaud that we have so many companies in this market that constantly try to reinvent the wheel. Keeps me interested and the rest of the community going.

Heck, this post just came out and it already has three pages or replies!

Wish they would have spent more on the looks of the spire. The "pointy" shape and "straight" lines are not that good looking.

If it looked near as good as a rotor or z2, I'd hop on it!

But wait, my Rotor with virtue soft cycle, hasn't jammed on me in 2 years of playing. Ill stick with it

Used spire 150+ vs. used rotor 85

Used probably, but even used on here they are top dollar, I think it'll be quite a bit before we see discounted ones, and by that I mean other hoppers will need to come out.

You are correct sir the spires are more than rotors. Newer and everybody wants the new shiny..... I owe both Spire never ever jams. Rotor once is a great while Houston is humid. The new colors are awesome though and for those that want to match there hopper to marker they have a new choice over running to a a dye rotor. It's really nice to have choices. Empire it is time to catch up.

New colors does not affect resale, new version does.

I'm going to say you're wrong.

New colors increase retail sales, and increased retail sales mean more in the B/S/T, meaning less demand and higher availability which almost always means lower pries.

Definitely. The lid is clear and looks like it should be brittle, but it's not by any means.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
