Regardless I'm interested in this hopper, if it brings more competition to the high end loader market, maybe the prices will come down on the other 2 manufacturers products

this thread on behalf of virtue is "instigating" cause they dont have a hopper to show for if you know what i mean, its either news or it isnt and a picture of 1/3 of a hopper isnt news, i bet virtue didnt get a infraction for instigating.

Amen to that! Would be great to see not only some more competition but more options in the Loader market.

You do realize Planet Eclipse "instigates" when it releases teaser pics of new guns/gear; what makes this any different or any other major gun manufacturer in paintball either?

virtue paid for a news up fyi

Normally Ecplipse delivers in a reasonable amount of time. This has been going on for over a month, which is more of an annoyance than a tease.

That thread was a thread started by someone who noticed it at his field (In March). The actual PE announcement of the Geo3 was started on a Tuesday with a website and a countdown timer that ended on Thursday.

Seeing as how there appears to be a controversy with some people here regarding the release of the Spire, I'll post on it here.

First, just to point out, there is nothing you can do or say to make the Spire arrive any sooner. So in a sense, it's just pontificating for the sake of wanting to get your 2-cents in. Not saying this to be harsh, but just pointing out, the product will come, when the initial production run is finished, and no amount of posting will change that. (Otherwise count me in as one who'd also prefer sooner!)

Second, whether you like or use our products or not, we have always focused on an "upgrade the engine" style philosophy. So in this case, we're revealing the guts of the product first and working our way to the outside. It may be a bit different, but personally, I think showing some aspects of the products function before just saying "here's how it looks" is actually more informative.

Third, the question might arise to why don't we just sit on our hands and not say anything until it hits the shelves. Well, we're paintball players, we love gear like most of you guys, and we're excited about this. So we want to get some of the word out, but we also just don't want to dump all the information out at once in advance, and have nothing "new" to show when it hits the shelves. And we're letting out now rather than later, because it's a bit of fun. Some people may be annoyed, because we're maximizing the time frame surrounding a product release. Now I'm not really sure why it would truly be upsetting, but I do understand this is a forum where we all have to get our 2-cents in, so we might as well discuss the pros/cons of how a product is released just like we'd discuss the product itself. So be it.

Finally, fourth, and it's touched on a bit above, the reason for our actions is because the paintball media landscape really has changed. Some guys are tuned in 100% into the handful of existing outlets... for some of those guys a longer teaser-time in the run up of a release might actually be annoying (for others it's a bit of fun). But most people don't sit here talking about paintball all day, so by spreading the info out we make sure that awareness is maximized. This must be working because many people within the industry are contacting us, and talking to each other about the new product, and we've never had that kind of response from any other release... So for the handful of you that are truly annoyed, I offer my sincere apologies. Come find me at an event and I'll find a way to make it up to you

I will say the release is not as far out as some are assuming though.

Hey guys
People here are talking about cheaper hoppers but the truth is if you want a cheap hopper you buy a invert too for 70 or a prophecy v2 for 100. Both work great dont jam and shoot 12.5 bps. What more do you need? Im all for another hopper in the high end market because this means the sport is still growing and insnt stagnent like so many people think it is. I cant wait to see the final production ready pics. Hopefully the looks will inspire people to buy just as long as it functions properly. My old rotor gave me nothing but problems here in the south because of the 100 degree days and 95% humidity. Hopefully this will work well in those conditions. Just my 2 cents.

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.
