New Virtue Spire 260 and Spring Ramp

Sounds like it will be making its debut at D-Day and PSP Chicago.



Dave Bains caught in action with the new 260 round Spire shell:

Heres a picture from our friends from Paint Supply in Germany. When they asked to take a picture, Chris grabbed it off the wall and put it in my hands!


But here's what I can tell you guys. We are still in the final testing stages and getting feeback from several pros and divisional players who are using these.

This product isn't a huge loader for back players. It holds 260 rounds, but is still smaller then a stock Rotor.

While several great back players like Dave Baines, Corey Field, and Nick Slowiak have been using these, front players like Greg Siewers, and Justin Rabakoff are also preferring it. Conversely Chad George, Kirill Prikhidni, and Alexander Berdnikov, who are some of the top front, mid, and back players all prefer their current size Spires.

Looks like it could be a new shell. It'd be more feasible to release a new shell instead of a whole other hopper.

I got my hands on one this weekend for a couple minutes, didn't get to get any play time with it but from what i can tell its just a shell. also looked like it has a better angle in the front to help feeding. its big but its not huge, great for back players in my book.

Virtue better make just the shells available, it's be a big "**** you" at this point. Yes, the Spire is a good hopper with nice capacity, but if I have to buy a new one to get a higher capacity shell that's just ridiculous ESPECIALLY with how stupidly simple the system is to move unlike the Prophecy high cap shell.

/rant

Honestly, this is pretty awesome, but as I've made obvious I want to be able to buy just the shell.

Good lawdy that thing looks big from the side for some reason. But this may finally push me over the edge to get a Spire and be done with my Z2...

It looks like it's just the lower half that has changed, so I would imagine it's a relatively cheap upgrade similar to the rotor high-top, letting you use the top, speedfeed, and internals from your existing spire.

Looks pretty good in comparison to the dye football(high top) too.

I agree with L x, it looks like the lower part was changed. I agree with the rest as well, hopefully it is just a shell upgrade!

Allthough, if it isn't, it would be nice if the inside tray had a ramp to direct the last few balls towards the back.

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.
