you are gonna get fan boys either way. the best thing you can do is research on this. the rotor has an ease of take apart and clean but the z2 doesn't jam like new york city streets at 5 pm when you use a little lower grade of paint.
i personally would choose the z2 over the rotor only because all 3 of my v3 rotors jammed and blended paint every time i used them. even after taking to the dye tent and have the settings fixed.

To be honest, if you want a loader that performs just was well at a better price, get the pinokio speed. Retail is $130 for this little guy new, faster than the z2 and the lightest hopper out there even with 2 9v batteries. Plus it never jams or fails to feed!
I buy and sell your used gear! Pm me for details!

I have a rotor but I re come d a pinokio speed. You should take a look at it

But if you can only choose between these 2 then I would go with the z2 because of the weight It is lighter than the rotor and performs just as good

I love my rotor. Too. All three are very good hoppers. None can be a bad purchase. Only reason I choose the speed is because it is lighter than z2 and rotor. And feeds amazing. More than what I need.

About my only issue with the Z2 is it's shells. They are not nearly as tough as the Rotor or Spire's shells and I have seen a couple break over the years. It is not a super common thing or anything but it can happen and when it does it could screw you out of a day of playing or even worse a tournament. KEE does have very good customer service though so when it does happen, they are usually fixed quick and free.

Rotor. Simple on/off (no programming is a good thing!). Simple dis-assembly for cleaning. Batteries last a year. Rock solid. My oldest one I have had for three years, before me it had at least two other owners. It has only jammed once, and that paintball was so malformed it would not have rolled through a paper towel roll.

The only negative is the capacity, and hell, I could solve that if I was not too lazy and/or cheap to buy the high cap shell.
My spool experience causes a little discrimination I suppose.

Ion: takes a half hour to do easy maintenance and there is a 50% chance it will leak once reassembled.

NT: requires at least a four year degree in metallurgy, physics, meteorology and dark magic to get it to operate.
