In my opinion, a Z2 if you want to go used or a Spire if you want to go new.

I heard that Rotors jam like crazy when the paint isn't perfect.

I heard that Prophecies won't run if they're not assembled right.

You want me to continue? You asked which one you should upgrade to, I said it.

I'd say the Spire. I'm not a huge fan of the Rotor, and I think the Z2 is butt ugly. I like the Spire's looks and they work really well (a guy on my team recently got one and it's an awesome loader)

Anything but a Rotor unless you like jamming and getting bunkered.

I know this is a totally stupid reason, but I just wish pinokio's were called something else. Pinokio is just a word that I cannot stand to hear said out loud. because of this fact, I would never use a pinokio even if someone gave me one for free. I hope this gets back to the folks at pinokio hoppers; it would be great if they changed their name. hearing the word pinokio is like nails on a chalk board to me for some reason.

Spire= Top of the Line, Ive been using one since the beginning of the year and I love it. They have the best speed feeds around and they are super easy to take apart. They do use a bit more battery than the rest but the pros certainly out weigh the cons.

I hate to say it, but not correct.

I put my batteries in my Spire on September 1st, put a case through it at practice that day, put a bag through the next day, a case the next Saturday, two cases the Saturday after that, a half case the next weekend, and 3 more cases fired through it since then as well as running about 15-20 cases worth through it using the force spin button. Still haven't even gotten the yellow light telling me my batteries are low.

i'd go with a spire if i was spending money, but best budget loader is Vlo/Jr with a virtue chip i you can find an intact shell for it.
