I haven't gotten mine yet. My spire started to derp hard this weekend though. It constantly has a red light, and keeps doing 1/4 turns of the spire tower. Also, the damn lower tray won't release. I'm very frustrated.

I remember reading in the original spire thread about people having the same issue you are. Seemed to have always been caused by low or cheap quality batteries. Someone from virtue mentioned about it.

I haven't actually actively posted on a club in a few weeks. Shocker owners here and there.

I have no life, I sell **** online for money, and only go outside between 4am and 7am to jog.

I must admit, I gave up on my Spire...

I found after a couple of hard practices that it's too hard to load completely when you're posted because of the stupid "spire" thingo in the middle of where the paint goes when you load.

I'd have to hold my pod up forever to get it to fully load when I was posted... if I wanted to tilt the gun down for a second it'd load fine but forget that

Back to Rotors. I picked up a Seed kit and a Virtue RF/board to do a head to head with.
So far the Seed is stomping the Virtue setup into the ground as far as reliability...

And I can LOAD the hopper in a second again, which is a HUGE deal for me. Seed has eliminated jams, too.

I used the stock speedfeed and a rotor speedfeed, didn't buy the new one.

.
if has nothing to do with the "thingy in the middle" its the older style speed feed were to stiff or people not taking the time to break them in. mod your old speed feed to take a epic or send your old one in and do the trade in program with virtue and get the new style one. I think you send it in with $10 and they upgrade you .

You missed where I ended up using a rotor speedfeed, I said it in the post right above yours.

I could feed just fine with the standard pop open lid, stock or rotor speedfeed and it was trickle time.

Well lets use our heads. If it fed fine with a lid but not a speed feed how is it the thing in the middle ....it would more then likely be the style of speed feed. Try the new one it works much better

Well, after using my head I realized that the lid opening is HUGE (from edge to edge and the entire back end of the hopper, really) compared to ANY speedfeed (which ALL make a small central hole RIGHT OVER THE SPIRE), including the new one, so your point isn't really that helpful, sorry.

The fact is the central spire is IN THE WAY of paint flow for ANY speedfeed due to their design... the lid is HUGE on the Spire which mitigates this to an extent.

I suppose I should say "fed OK" with the lid, rather than "fed fine", but that's splitting hairs.

Once the Spire is loaded it works great, feeds fast without incident. Since it's difficult to get a fast reload ingame without tilting forward or using the pop up lid, I don't use one anymore.

It's too bad really, I really wanted to like it.

Ive used the spire with the stock v1 speed feed which wasnt good until it was fully broken in even then when I modded it to fit the epic the epic was hands down better. I also have the new speed feed and have no problems while being posted loading with either one. maybe im just lucky
