50-100 ball dye rotor lid intrest

I wanted to gage how much intrest there would be in having a lid made for the dye rotor that would hold between 50 and100 paintballs as a way to focus on the pump and limited paint paintball communities.

If it were a decent price I'd definitely get one too. Any estimate on cost?

Right now I am just trying to get an idea of how much interest there would be in such a product. Price would likely be comparable to other rotor top shells but there is no way to guarantee that at this point.

Really impressive. If you come out with this, I will purchase one just on principle.

If it was good quality, I bet you could get some retailers to pick some up. If they sell pico shells, I don't know why they wouldn't be interested in this as well.

Its even better then pico because you can switch it back and forth between full size and lower capacity. Only thing I would like to see is that a standard Speed feed fits on it and that its made from the same indestructible material.

A standard rotor speed feed would require a two piece shell to hold the speedfeed disk in place. This would do one of two things, either build into more of the interior space causing possible feeding issues with the rotors spring loaded plate located at the bottom back of the hopper or else the outside profile of the shell would need to be raised to make up the space for the extra material that the feature requires. Haha not trying to make excuses here, I just want to make sure that the design covers the two main purposes. (1.) Work well. (2) lower the profile and capacity. Someone on mcb came up with the idea of using the virtue rotor speedfeed that replaces the standard lid/door. It might be a good work around to having a single shell design.

I would rather it except an exalt or universal speed feed on top. This would only require a Small increase in profile the thickness of the exalt speed feed with a small lip to keep everything in place. Like the one that fits the Revvy/ Halo. Actually you could use the Mouth of the revvy a reference for size. Just about All universal Speed feeds fit it so it would allow for different options. Like the one you have pictured I would buy that in a hart beat. Keep us updated on your progress. I want one.

I would probably buy 2 or 3 depending on price and quality. And I don't even have a rotor (so if this came out I would buy that too).

I would prefer lowest profile. I actually don't like speed feeds while playing pump.

Just read through both threads. Would love to see this come out. Standard Rotor style speedfeed would be cool but I understand wanting to keep it low profile. The Exalt style would work great and most of the extra high is towards the backside anyway. If this could have the same durability and finish as a regular Rotor shell I would definitely buy but will likely buy one either way!
