Spire 3 vs ctrl

Hi pbn, just curious about the size difference on these two loaders. How much smaller is the bk loader compared to the spire? Also, has anyone had any issues with the latch on the ctrl opening on them during play? Thanks!

Wrote this. In there, besides reviewing the loader, there are also pictures of the CTRL next to the competing loaders from front, back, and sides.

i ended up really liking my ctrl better than my spires. its just way easier to deal with overall. when i need more size i keep and r2 around. the ctrl is great for fast paced low profile games.

They also offer an "upgraded" top shell now to address the latch issue. I bought one and ended up using my original top. I don't see much difference.

I love my CTRL. I find it takes as much paint as my TFX2 did and maybe a little more. The ramp system is really good and you don't need to shuffle the hopper around to feed paint even compared to the spire. I think it is a good hopper overall.

Speed feed pops open fairly easily on the CRTL if you play snake or dive a lot.
Seen it 1/2 dozen times or more.
I think the plastic maybe more flexible??
Otherwise I love it.
