My buddy got to keep a rotor left at the field... I put a couple wraps of lime green duct tape on my pods to help identify them.

Meh rotor >.<

Talked to mike for like 2 hours last nite. Lots of good loots and info on the loader ^.^, finally asked him why it didn't come out at cup and he explained that its been torn down and reworked a few times because it wasn't working how it should have. Said its got over 200k paintballs thru it and it's running perfect.

Got info on all the new parts updates that are out/Comeing, out all free of course if you register your marker.

Lots of awesome stuff happening for them. Now... To get me a job there.... :p

I like my rotor... I am hard on hoppers and mine hasn't broke yet, it has never jammed, it has never blended paint, it has fantastic battery life and I pulled it out of the box tossed in some batteries and played. I love it because I never worry if it's going to go down.

See that's what we starting talking about also, most people won't have issues with jamming on any loader,since it's really just that super High quality tournament paint that has the issues.

Most people play Rec and shoot the cheap paint or maybe a step up,not everyone shoots the Tourney grade drop test brittle . So for most people any marker or any loader will work without hiccups . Just the mentality that we need to shoot the best marker and loaders out there .

You got it backwards I think... most loader issues I had with my old favorite hopper (the vlocity jr with an upgraded chip) were from using bad field grade paint. I usually always run evil even for rec play.

Maybe? I never had any issues with any loader I ever used using rec paint .. Using seconds we didn't even have problems

Yeah, I don't know but evil in a rotor has been no issue.

I've had my rotor for a long while and I rarely get any jams and if I do it's from either huge paint or really crappy oblong paint. Got the virtue soft cycle in there and have had no problems.

Nope , I just know of a few teams, like Vicious.

I hear teams are switching because PE doesn't do what others offer.

I'd assume dye would try to buy virtue or something along those lines...

Maybe, although it wouldn't be that great of an acquisition since the only thing virtue does that dye doesn't is boards. I did see that Vicious will be going all Empire in 2013 though. I guess they would rather have PL Axes than Egos or Geos.

I agree that it doesn't make a lot of sense, but dye is pretty lackluster in the board arena. I don't see tadao selling out or 7e either. IMO, that's the main thing dye needs at this point.

Not a trolling statement at all, but honestly I'd probably rather shoot an axe than a geo or ego too. For some reason I hate most exposed bolt designs and the geo is meh on a good day. The geo, to me, is in the same category as a MacDev drone with an upgraded board... The axe, when upgraded with a boss or eigenbolt is deadly smooth, quiet and efficient.

I guess PE just says here's a marker, good luck?

Also when your here required to shoot the markers ,but get a small discount for one , can only hope you do for the backup marker.

PL markers don't mean anything these days when it's just a new laser engraving, not like the olden days with BL (and I guess new again) like dragons, species and A-Bomb..

Easy switch from PE to empire when they can go, o, here's 2 Axes and a loader +softgoods .. Enjoy! Considered Axes aren't inflated as vastly as PE markers. It doesn't cost nearly half of what PE sells there markers for to make.. More like 1/4 at best. It's what happens when you Machine in Taiwan . Same with Dye.

Dyes after patents.

LoL somewhat, change a few orings and airflow and you ideally have the same thing, Just avoids the patents.buying up someone else's tech will let them have more freedom in designing Something.. In the end ,Patents are a *****
