Best High End Hopper

The choices are the three that are probably most common, the Dye Rotor, the Empire Prophecy Z2, Virtue Spire, and the Pinokio. Which one do you think is best?
Unfortunately I made a mistake so the Virtue Spire is not on the Poll.

I still prefer the Halo/Magna with rip drive to all of those. Always hated Rotors, jam like crazy and don't feed as fast as the Halo. They are light and when working properly, they are nice. Pinokio is slow, loud and huge. At least the one I used for a game was.

Between the three I would take the Rotor or Z2. I have both of those and prefer the Z2 to my Rotor.

Well, I have a Spire coming and still have a Halo. Too bad my Pinokio has died.

Guess I can't vote.

Why do people do this wanna-be hk thing? I mean hk people dont even play paintball, they just whine and start drama while wearing the ugliest stuff. Seriously you find light blue and pink to be attractive colors for your parents 1500 dollar investment (your gun/marker)? If you want to whine keep it off the field and save it for the internet; O wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO! Haha, if you don't play then don't whine.


I want your G6r parts and upgrades, sell them to me, because you wont get anything for them if you sell/trade them with the gun.

Made my day, haven't seen that monstrosity mentioned here in awhile.

OT, I voted for the Rotor. Simple design, quick feeding, easy take down, little to no jams. That's all I'll ever need.

Absolutely true. You can probably out-feed a rotor with your hands, in respect to reballs.

yes the rotor does suck with reballs but it was not designed for that, it was designed for paintball. I dont count that as a negative to the rotor, just a positive to the loaders that do.

see here is where i disagree. the halo was designed for paintball and paintball only and being that reball wasnt even out, respectively so. now a top of the line loader in todays era should have no problem feeding reballs or paint. just my .02

I can understand your opinion, guess we will just have to disagree. When the rotor came out it was "o well, it doesn't feed reballs, bummer" and as soon as the z2 dropped it all changed to "O my god the rotor sucks so much cuz it wont even feed re-balls, HHHHHHHHHH, god they are so much cooler". In reality, re-ball is a different animal. We dont complain about spools struggling with them, or guns with detents that struggle but the hopper has to feed amazingly? Like I said, I respect your opinion, but have my own,

I have a pinokio for when I use my PMR and I love it. It is pretty big but that's because it holds a ton of paint so it's great if your a back player or play a lot of scenarios like me. It feeds pretty fast too and I've never had a jam, break, etc. with it
