Used a Gangstar'd Vlo Jr. for years until just recently whe I upgraded to a Spire. That was one of the best decisions I've made.....lightweight, tiny profile, incredibly simple construction and design, and it basically operates transparently.

I've seen plenty of Rotors (and jams) and I'll take a smaller, lighter, more reliable loader every day of the week. It may be expensive but that's the last thing on my mind when using it.

I just sold my Pinokio and have a Spire on the way. My hopper that I probably use the most out of all of them though would be my old Revy.

I've seen rotors jam a plenty, people not liking the spire (before the spring loaded part came out), and the only complaint on the z2 was its low capacity. The prophecy v2 hasn't given me any real problems. Yes I had a board die, and yes I had the feed neck crack. That was after a season of cfps and world cup, and replacement parts are cheap. Hell, you can even modify the shells now to accept Z2 feed necks/trays AND they are dirt cheap used.

I've used the Spire for a month now on 8 different markers and have put 5 cases through it. Not one little issue. It's the most transparent loader I've ever seen, meaning that it just works with no drama.

I've used a prophecy v2 since it came out with out any issues, other than it being kind of annoying to take apart. I didn't like any of my Rotors at all. Recently i switched to a spire..... and there is no going back.

Exactly. My favorite loader today by a mile.

I have been using a Rotor for the last few years. The only non-user related issue I have had was when there was an egg shaped paintball inside that jammed it up. I don't think any loader could have passed that thing.

Having said that, I haven't used a Spire yet. Until I have issues with my Rotor, I don't plan to either.

I have a Rotor, Pinokio and Halo V35. I love all of them but the rotor used cost as much as the pinokio new and the Halo I am in 1/3 the price of the Pinokio. They all. Do exactly what I need and I use them at different times depending on what I am doing. Recomend getting a V35 in the BST and using it for a bit

Ive been using my gen 1 rotor from 2009 season till now and still going strong. ( i got it used)
Ive played in lots of different turnys with it and pick up ball as well.

I put an average of 2 cases a month though it. (120+ plus cases)

Its decently fast. About 17-18 on gun. not as fast as pulse. Feed rate is steady. and only had 3 jams with it. and only one took me out of game.

I use a V2 prophecy all stock. Works like a charm. The Halo V35 is a nice hopper, but its pretty heavy wich can be annoying.

Got both a spire 260 that is my main loader and a backup (girlfriends loader) rotor. Bought a spire about a month after it came out then pick up all the updates and a 260 shell. Haven't had an issue.
