Isn't the vast majority of all paint made either by APX, pro shar or GI, and just rebranded under different company names?

Yes, but last time they tried I believe they used APX with poor results.

I googled "virtue spire iv" and this was the first result. Looks like Brad was right.

I have to assume this means the loader and the gun will communicate with each other as has been tried in the past.

You are correct.



The Virtue Ace is a collaboration between legends. We've taken the Luxe X and built the Ace around it's ultra performance firing system and designed all new electronics in the gun that integrate perfectly with the new Spire IV. This is no private label gun; the Ace represents many ground-breaking firsts in collaboration from the ground-up between legends in the paintball industry.

Wireless iFI performance integration between the Virtue Ace gun board and Spire IV loader
Wireless control of settings and functions of the Virtue Ace gun board via Android or Apple devices.
Integrated, matching Chromatic parts on the Spire IV and Ace fore grip, back cap and grips.
Custom, Limited Edition body styling
Custom Ace trigger with tactile racing groves
Highly limited edition colorways
Wireless Loader Syncing • Live Bluetooth Programmable • Smart Stat Game Tracking

The Virtue iFI board brings several new performance and usability features to the market. By wirelessly syncing with your Spire IV loader, the iFI enables your loader and marker to fire even more consistently and reliably as a single unit. And if the connection is ever lost for some reason, the Spire IV will function using the new standalone Spire IV Proactive feeding logic.

Live Bluetooth Programming allows you to make changes instantly using your mobile device or tablet without ever needing to turn off the gun. And the marker can still be fired, which makes configuration and adjustments so convenient without ever turning the gun on and off and re-entering the programming menu.

Smart Stat Game Tracking keeps track of game play and shot statistics automatically sensing the start and stop of each game without requiring you to do anything. These statistics can be published through your mobile device to a worldwide leaderboard database. As the database expands over time, you’ll be able to view and compare your own stats, your overall team stats, and other players as well.

Spire IV Enhancements

What's new on the Spire IV? The main differences are in the electronics and feeding logic. The Spire IV has been upgraded to work with the Virtue Ace wireless iFI platform. This new feeding technology allows for a tight integration between the loader and the gun and also maintains backwards compatibility on guns without iFI technology using the new Proactive Feeding logic pioneered on the CTRL loader.

Spire IV iFI Wireless Technology

When the Spire IV is paired with the Virtue Ace, the loader maintains instant communication with the marker's eyes which allows for significant improvements as both the gun and the loader are now synced together for faster and more consistent feeding, stopping and idle performance. And if the gun's eyes are turned off, dirty or if the Spire IV is used on a different gun, the Spire IV automatically transitions to the new proactive feeding mode, which will automatically feed with every shot until the stack is full.

Spire IV Upgraded Cosmetics
To help differentiate the Spire IV and give this latest model of the Spire family a new look, we've upgraded the color ring around the side with a more aggressive racing stripe that's also injected in stronger, more reliable glass filled nylon. Additionally, the side badges now feature injected Virtue logos, rather than a sticker badge.

Spire IV Toolless N-Charge
Near the end of the Spire III production, we upgraded the circuit board to allow for plug-n-play toolless installation of the N-Charge battery pack to make the transition to the Spire IV. All Spire IVs come with the electronics designed to install the Virtue N-Charge without the use of any tools.

The Virtue Ace + Spire IV represents the finest engineering and design in both paintball loader and marker technology. Here's what's included in each package:

Virtue Ace Luxe X Marker
Matching Virtue Spire IV Loader
Matching Chromatic Back Cap, Fore grip, and Grips
Custom Ace Trigger
14" Freak XL Barrel
Gun Case
USB C-Charger
Additional non-Chromatic Backcap
Barrel Cover
Parts Kit
Allen Key Set
Lube

Totally agree, we all carry these little computers around, let’s put them to use. Been waiting for this tech to come back for years with loaders paired to markers.

I’m just venturing a 100% guess but with a custom milled x and the newest fancy loader I’m gonna say in the ball park of $1999.99

What ever it is it’ll be a big number.

Very cool. I was wondering when someone was going to come out with another RF loader solution.

Or basically a modern version of a number of RF compatible loaders that we saw 10-15 years ago. Still could be neat. The performance on these was always really good, they were just sort of unreliable/quirky. With modern wireless technology it could be a really nice setup.

I just want a myriad of color choices. The internals are already amazing imo. All these colors are great we just need a solid green, lighter blue and a pink.

You are probably close on that. Would be nice to give a ballpark number for those wishing to reserve. Heck what are the options? Marker and loader only or could you get the marker/loader separately?

That Luxe has too much milling going on where it seems like it doesn't flow together and I agree it looks like a MacDev gun.

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.
