CrownSF now shipping



Finally a speed feed with no drawbacks. Heavy duty polycarbonate Spring Fingers reload with ease, spring immediately back into position and keep every ball locked securely inside. When those rain clouds make an appearance, the Spire Crown SF Quick Release back shell allows for changing back and forth from Speed Feed to Lid in mere seconds.



The Spire Crown SF features it’s own built-in hinged lid for easy bag-reloading in the pits and button-locking mechanism to prevent it from ever opening accidentally on the field. When those rain clouds make an appearance, the Spire Crown SF Quick Release back shell allows for changing back and forth from Speed Feed to Lid in mere seconds.



Reload with ease and and never lose paint. The Crown SF is based on the upgradeable finger Crown2 platform and features Spring Finger technology. The Crown SF is the pinnacle of speedfeed evolution. Instead of a rubber hinge, each Crown SF finger is attached to a feather light spring, allowing it to flex downward with the slightest touch and immediately spring back to the closed position. This allows a perfect feed, with no paint loss.
  • Effortless Reload
  • Never Lose a Ball
  • Quick Release Backshell Included
  • Heavy Duty Polycarbonate
  • Button-Lock Lid
  • Lifetime Warranty


Info on the Spire Crown2 trade-up program can be found in the "Loader/Hopper" section of the Virtue site.

Current spire speedfeed owners better get a heavy discount.

That would be great if they gave the discount with the trade in of the old virtue speedfeed!

Good job virtue, picking up the slack

This speed feed is a significant improvement over the original launch speedfeed. Paint retention is much better and it reloads quick and easy.

So they walked away from the Crown 2 fin design and went back to the Exalt fin design and increased the price by $10. I AM SOLD!!!! TAKE MY MONEY!

Just called to try and send mine in but the rep said the new units are only at World Cup right now. Details on mail-in trade-ins will be released in around a week.

Sounds awesome, I like how Virtue offers these trade-ins when most other company's would just say screw you buy the new one.
Would definitely be interested in trading my crown 2 in for it!

Really? Why should you expect a heavy discount let alone one at all?

Glad to see someone finally catch up to the ORIGINAL speed feed. I've got a metal spring loaded feed at home made for the halo that still puts all others to shame. If it weren't so bulky I'd make a fortune!! Virtue's looks like the best mass produced one for sure.

Thank heavens...

I was trying to re-train myself to load this thing, trying all sorts of wacky teeth designs and pod-overnight thing didn't help too much.

Very excited.

Because the current spire crown design is a downgrade from nearly every other speedfeed on the market. Customers bought the first speedfeed available for the Spire from Virtue expecting a product as good as, if not better than anything they have put out thus far and it did not live up to that at all.

It would be bad business to leave your first wave customers who are willing to take the new product dive by the wayside. Glad that Virtue is doing this trade in program though

$10 ?!!

Its going to cost almost that much for shipping to ship the old nonfunctioning speedfeed back to them. We should get a refund for their original speedfeed that was obviously short of what we were all looking for. Virtue? Thoughts? Shipping credit? Original speedfeed mistake refund?

Springs plus plastic fingers? Sounds risky. Rubber speedfeeds have held up pretty well for me.

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.
