Spire ???

Ok so Im over seas and just heard of the Spire yesterday. I tried finding more info on it but my internet is kinda slow for big websites (idk why I can get on here so easily though). I was hoping you guys could be some help. Im getting all new gear when I get back and im currently rolling with an LTD Prophecy. Should I replace it with the Spire? What are the Spires pros and cons? What are its features? You get the idea. Thanks guys

Just stick with the LTD.

The Spire Pros-
Non-stop unjam
High capacity
Light
Small

Cons-
Not super fast (I got breaks in a stream shooting 18bps at 5 sensitivity with the highest speed, doesn't matter for tourneys anyway)
Expensive

For now, I'd say just stick with the LTD.

Mk...so basically it isn't bad for tournaments but not so good that I should replace my prophecy?

Exactly, it will get the job done, but if you've already got the Prophecy (An LTD at that) then it's not worth it unless you REALLY just want to buy a new hopper and you have the expendable funds to do so.

Spire is the best hopper i've ever had. Who cares about shooting 18 bps. As long as it can go 12.5 im fine. It never jams, or breaks paint. Its super easy to strip down and clean (even easier than the rotor). It has a higher ball capacity then both the rotor and the Z2 while being the same size and the new Spring feeds are the best speed feeds EVER!

Im not worried about speed either, but is it worth it when I have the prophecy? Ive been told no...

No. It's not worth it by any means. It's a hopper, it puts paint into your marker, and unless your Prophecy stops doing that you're better off without the Spire.

I owe a Prophecy too, and still use it. If it ain't broke. Here's my paradox I also owe a Spire and Rotor. OK to answer the question it depends. The Spire NEVER JAMS EVER. The Rotor hasn't jammed, but other people I know say I does rarely and pretty easy to clear. My prophecy does jam but mainly when very wet. Raining or very humid so I switch to the spire then.

I will likely keep the hopper until it totally breaks.

Just to set the record straight. You should have a backup hopper anyway especially for tournaments. I still run my prophecy v1 as a backup for tournaments and primary for rec ball. It does jam rarely where the spire never does. I am not saying NO BACKUP= NEW SPIRE$$$$, but a backup loader IMO is an even better idea than a back up marker.

Is the Spire worth the $$$ YES as it fit in my budget, but missing a day of PBall for equipment is a lame idea. If you don't have a backup consider another prophecy. There cheap now the Z2 is out.
