If anything, the million & one mods for speedfeeds has been an exercise in showing Virtue that their speedfeed needs work.

or that other manufacturers are taking too long to release their version of speedfeed for the spire.

I've had my spire for a while now and I can honestly say I don't really like it. It is always spinning even when I stop shooting which isn't a problem because it doesn't break paint or jam. All the settings are stock and other spires I've seen and used do not act like mine does. I have 3 other rotors and I have now gone back to using my rotor the part few weekends. I don't know what to do? Any suggestions?

Have you tried calling virtue? They will know best if its a big or small fix along with how to.
Thy are a large company and the spire is their first attempt (I believe) at breaking into a new product market aside from just producing components therefore I'm sure they will be more than happy to help a customer with a problem that is willing to speak out against their product

They were some brand new ace hardware batteries. Not the best so I will try some brand new Duracell or energizer and then let you know.

Thats more than likely your problem. There has been quite a few reports of spires not liking generic brand batteries.

If your spire is always spinning, you can adjust the "Drive Force" (yellow setting).

Turn it from 2 to 1.

If that doesnt fix the issue, then its probably that the batteries are low. Please try a new set.

If your still having issue, please give us a call at 631-617-5346.

We'll get you working.

Thanks.
Mike

Not sure if sarcasm......

Anyway, by the sounds of it you wont have to use the crown 2 much longer if they hold true to the new speedfeed and previous owners dissatisfied with the crown2

How is everybody who transitioned from a rotor liking the Spire? It looks nice and all but i'm curious to see how it performs compared to a rotor. I hated the prophecys and i loved how my rotor has performed for me for 3 years. Just looking to try something new but not something thats new and crap.

No it actually works better until virtue revises the current speedfeed

ive only had it jammed on my 3 times in the 3 years i've used it. and one time was when i accidently dumped a pod of paint into it that popped open and got filled with sand when i slid. the 2nd time, i was messing around with the settings like a idiot and i dont know what i did but it kept feeding and jamming balls on me. Now its been working fine and i think its the most reliable hopper compared to all my friends prophecy v1, v2, and z2's

I used the rotor for more than 3 years and now I got the spire.

The only thing I don't like about the Spire is it's current speedfeed by Virtue themself. Loading is a pain in the *** because it's so stiff. I recently put a KM Spine on it and will test it out this sunday at practise.

Speedfeeds by other company's will start popping up soon so that only thing I don't like will be gone really soon.

I cannot find any other con against the Rotor, it's a tad lighter, lower profile, even much easier to take apart, never jams, just a serious good hopper!

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.
