IMO, the best hopper would be between the Dye Rotor, Virtue Spire and the Empire Prophecy Z2. I currently own both a Rotor and a Z2 and they work great, but if I had to choose the BEST, for me it would be the Rotor. The reason why I prefer the Rotor over the Z2 is because I find that the Rotor's shell feels more durable than the Z2. Dye claims that the rotor can do 50+ BPS but my rotor can only do about 22+ BPS (Which I don't mind because I only play with 12.5 bps). I would say the speed of both the Z2 and Rotor are pretty much the same. Also, I like that it takes seconds to fully take it apart and to clean it, when the Z2 can take more time to fully take it apart, not just take the front cone off. The feednecks on both hoppers are pretty good and they feel durable. The battery life on the Rotor is better than the Z2. Overall, I prefer my Rotor over my Z2.

IMO

I don't like:
1. Rotor is heavy , very expensive , uses AA batteries , holds 200 rnds , lacks programing
2. Spire , very expensive uses AA batteries , holds 200 rnds , lacks programing
3. Z2 $129.00 , anti jam is annoying , lacks programing
4. V2 split feed neck (broke 1 in last 4 years)

What I do like
1. Rotor is easy on batteries
2. Spire large mouth
3. Z2 solid feed neck
4. V2 280 rounds , fully programmable , 9v batteries like my marker , light weight , RF built in , magnetic tension on first 6 balls for fast snap shooting , CHEAP to buy.

My choice V2 Prophecy

I dont own any but I have used te three: Spire, Z2, and Rotor. IMO the spire had the least amount of jams and it was quiet. It also had a really sleek look. Also durability.The z2 was nice but it started jamming on me. The rotor jammed a lot when I used it. Also when you are running out of paint it is kinda loud. But it is durable as **** and feeds fast. But like I said IMO the spire is best.

Rotor or spire. Ive been using a rotor forever and love it. You have to turn the tension down though because depending on what paint and the weather it does have a tendency to jam

Used the spire last week and it worked great. I really liked using it. The profile is a little lower and the lid opening is a little wider so you wont dump as much paint reloading. Plus you don't have to worry about it jamming.

Not saying the Z2 is better than everyone - but this has been my exact experience with Kee
