*** Virtue Spire Feedback ***

Im wanting to get a virtue spire hopper. My question is you guys that have them can you leave any feedback for me about your experiences with spire. If you dont have one or you havent shot a gun with one please refrain from posting as I dont want opinions from people that cant speak from experience. Please include good/bad or issues you have had with yours and an overall rating on how you like it. Thank you for your feedback.

Man ive heard all the horror stories of peoples rotors jamming. Ive only had mine a month or so and have about 8 cases through it and i havent had 1 jam. Im gonna buy the spire i think just because I like the way it looks and Ive heard great things from what Ive read. i was just looking to get some real time feedback from some folks that have them. thanks for your input.

Tried using my rotor first today. Put a brand new virtue soft arm in it and it constantly jammed all day. Grabbed my spire and no issues. Definitely outdoes my rotor

One thing that I'm unsure of about mine is reloading. It seems that the paint stacks. It might be totally different on the playing field though. I just shot a few pods in the yard and noticed it. I don't foresee it being a problem during game play though. Anybody else ran into this issue yet

I didn't have any problems on the field. What do you mean by the "paint stacks"? I'm guessing just the movment in and out of the bunker and running will affect what you are refering to.

when i try to load a pod using the speed feed lid the paint stacks up at the mouth of the spire and doesnt allow a full pod to be loaded without pointing the gun down a little bit to allow paint to travel to the front of the loader. like i said this may be an issue i dont even notice on the field.

It's true that the ramp inside can cause you to tilt the gun down a bit to load.

I noticed that on my Z2 and Rotors, too, though.

To be fair, it's more pronounced on the Spire, but not so bad that you can't live with it.

Still wondering why we use loaders on top of our gun instead of having the paint come directly out of our pack??
