I appreciate the R&D that goes into this hopper. I have no doubt this is a fantastic loader.

but....

There are to many damn parts! The biggest reason why my teammates, friends, and myself continue to use/buy rotors over the prophecy is the simplicity. Make your version 3 have as few parts as the rotor and you have a winner.

he was just showing you the insides, you never need to do more than take off the nose. If you take apart a rotor down to the motor and gears you will notice about the same number of parts. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong

I have the v2 prophecy and it works flawlessly I see no reason to change.
However I still want one. I still don't understand how people snap feed necks.
Ive been playing since 89 and played some d3 for like six years. Never ever broke a feed neck on any loader. It just puzzles me. I know everyone is going to say its when I'm diving or sliding, but still learn proper form. Please help yourselves save your gear.

.
1. it gets clamp on too tight when installing on the feed tube.
2. people dont know how to dive properly.
3. people dont know they running towards a tree while looking the other way.

All of you guys selling your rotors can go ahead and PM me. I'll gladly take them off your hands.

Are there options for speedfeeds for the Z2? It'll be interesting to see. Maybe I'll pick one up used in a few months. I just can't shell out that much money for a loader right now. If the shell really is more durable then it's definitely a contender in my eyes. I couldn't stand how cheap the older prophecy shells felt.

Also if my speedfeed question was answered in the video- stay off my nuts about it. Its 11:56pm.. I'm not about to watch a youtube video when everyone is trying to sleep. I hate watching videos for information anyway.

I think its the same speedfeed as the first prophecy.

I gotta pick one of these up at nppl vegas if you guys are there.

I'm sorry but this "poor form" argument is just plain inexcusable. If a company's product isn't strong enough to withstand a rough dive, the answer isn't "just be better at paintball".

Nobody has perfect slides and dives every time. Nobody. Even professionals get stuck on bad turf, trip on dirt patches, lose their footing etc. and hit the ground way harder than they wanted to. If a hopper can't withstand rough tournament play it will end up with a broken shell or feedneck one way or another.

Anyone can make a hopper that withstands a normal impact dive where the player glides gracefully over smooth grass. The real challenge is creating a hopper that can withstand a smack to the ground because S1 is no more than a dirt pit. That's why the Rotor is popular, that's why Invert2 shells replaced Halo/EmpireB's, that's why Empire created a new shell and feedneck system for the Prophecy.

Expected to see exactly what I saw. A great, new product released and people *****ing about the price and the resale value of their current gear.

Paintball is an expense, NOT an investment. Get over yourselves.


Could not agree more. We need more inovation who cares about resale paintball was never about making money!

This.

You don't expect your car, TV, stereo or mail order bride to be worth the same amount you originally paid for it after a year of use do you? Then why should paintball equipment be any different?

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.
