Had a guy pm me saying it makes no sense how the epic would fit. All I said back was ""

Haha! I don't mind ripping out the teeth. As long as the epic stays in place without them. I won't ever willingly go back to a crown2.

Also, I checked the mail and my epic came a day early. That was a super easy retrofit.

Looks nice! I got the same color coming. So which variation of the mod did you use? Just the 4 screw holes, all 10 notches cut out or as NECanes did and dremel out the ring base to have it sit flush?

For those wanting a flush fit without dremeling out the base to keep it stock, what about just making all 10 cutouts and then making 6 more small cutouts to fit around the little knobs that the crown2 fingers mount to? Would be more work, but maybe an option for those wanting to keep the base fully stock.

The stock arms are so bad, I don't know why you'd want to keep it stock.

I just was too lazy to dremel mine out flush... I did nip out the little knobs with some wire cutters.

Im keeping it stock so I can just wait and buy an actual speedfeed produced for the Spire. My stock feed works perfectly fine, and soon enough a speed feed that just drops in will be available.

like I said I have an extra speed feed top so I was willing to mess around. The way I did it the speed feed holds perfectly fine and im not worried about it. I think virtue does need to make the top part (where the screws go in) out of a stronger plastic or use screws with a wider base. It feels a little cheap. But either way works fine.

I actually just cut out the 4 spots for the screws to pass through, and stretched it onto the upper ring. Then I screwed it down. It took less than 10 minutes.

That method won't work with a KM or Exalt speedfeed though. The epic's fingers happen to align perfectly between the spire's retaining fingers, so you don't need to break/dremel them off. You would need to remove the fingers if you want to use anything but the epic.


I'm so stoked to be free of the horrid crown2. I just put 5 pods through the epic, and it's a huge improvement.

They are made out of a similar material, but the location of the fingers is different (and the location is key in weather or not they will work without modification).

Take a look at the following picture and you can see what I am talking about.







The spine may work on an unmodified v1 spire lid, but I assure you it won't work on the v2 version without the removal of the tabs/retention fingers.

The top portion of the spire speedfeed is held on by 4 screws. Remove the screws and lift the "lid" off. You will then see the retention fingers I'm referring to. The earliest generation didn't have these, but the newest ones do. Remove them if you want to use a non hk epic rotor SF.

Can't tell if your grammar error was on purpose. Technically, this would mean that I am allowed to join but cannot speak. Which means I would get banned for being inactive. Will, you are one clever kid
