I gotta say, the pure fact that they are doing this trade in program is above and beyond. Please no complaining about the colors. We are fortunate as is. Color makes very little difference. I happen to like both and I don't really care which I receive.

That said, I mailed mine Monday the 26th and they received it this morning, Tuesday the 27th at around 10am. They had shipped me the new one by 1130am. What company does that? Amazing.

Looking forward to playing with it this weekend. We have some awesome companies out there guys and Virtue is part of that classification in my books.

To add to the above excellent post, I would like to buy 2 of them right now and can't find them anywhere. Virtue is taking care of the trade-in's first which is mostly a hassle and no profit for them. I think that Virtue is handling the trade-in very well so I am OK with waiting a little (hopefully not too long).

You can buy them directly from the Virtue Paintball website. They have both colors listed (black & white), but not sure what is actually in stock right now.

I placed an order for a black one, so we shall see how long it takes to ship.

Price is $45 with free shipping.

And a couple hundred plus people have been using them since World Cup (1 month)
We've been using them for over 8 months

We actually had these made at the time the Spire was released. Some may have noticed that Nick Slowiak was using this style since the hopper came out. But like some of you guys that are concerned, we were also concerned as to "just what's going to happen". So that's why we've waited so long to release them

Believe me, this is the most expensive speed feed anyone has ever produced, both in the tooling, unit price, and assembly! We certainly didn't want to get it wrong and have parts falling apart everywhere, which is why we held it back in testing and internal tweaking for so long. -- which was painful for a whole different reason, knowing we had something really awesome and were sitting on it, even though it was "ready" and being used by people who shoot more paint than the rest us.

Thats good to hear.

I do think I will probably pick up one of these speedfeeds when I get a spire.

Does anyone know the difference between the prototypes and the release model other than the spring tension, if that?

It was just one of the first runs they did of the feeding system...not as clean cut. If you look at the one I have you can see it is "virtually" the same thing only more raw looking do to the material not being a "finished" product for production.

We just got 4 of these in at my shop and I have to say I am very impressed. They seem to work very well and the price is certainly justifiable. to Virtue for thinking outside the box!

That's pretty sweet.

I got my own in today, dumped a pod in, and my jaw dropped in awe. This speedfeed is AMAZING! Easily the best one made.

Are there any plans to add this speedfeed for the Rotor lineup? Or is it only currently available though modififying the spire speedfeed?

If there are plans on a Rotor release, is there a timeframe that we can expect to see them?

If you want it on the Rotor/Prophecy NOW and have $65 to spend, you can buy the regular Crown 2 for the Rotor/Prophecy and the Crown SF for the Spire, disassemble the SF and pull the fingers out (They'll fit in the standard slot), and put them in your Rotor/Prophecy's Crown 2.

Voila! Rotor SF!

Appreciate the kind words, but truth be told neither the original concept we had years ago but never pursued after an early prototype nor did this new version originate with me. I was involved in development level testing, feedback, tweaking, sorta stuff, but I didn't conceive this idea. It's definitely really cool though

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.
