I would just like to add a hopper to the list, the Virtue Spire
MSRP is 185/190, but i doubt you can get any used since it only just came out.
its on the same level as a Dye Rotor, high quality rubber/plastic for durability and about the same price for a new one. If I had a choice, getting a new loader after my Rotor breaks, I would have to flip a coin to see which to purchase because its a close call.
I realize that I am quoting myself.....But i wanted to add more to my original post about the spire.
I just picked one up and it really does play very nice. durable and low profile makes it a buy for life.
There were no jamming issues or slow ball feeds, it kept up as fast as i could fire. There is a lot of blinking from the LED as i was firing, in low light it could be an issue of giving away your position(could cause a seizure
), but in an outdoor daytime setting its no problem.
The hardest thing to get used to was to lean back to get more balls to the motor instead of forward (I am used to a Rotor). A Minor issue was feeding balls into a pod, it doesnt unload quickly becuase it is shot activated. otherwise works magnificently.
it definately holds 200 balls on its own which is a plus over other hoppers of the same size. The profile definately makes a difference in that effect but its personal preference for the expensive loaders. Whatever you like best.
