Looks Cool.

So how long do we have to take advantage of the introductory price and where do you place that payment (bunkerkings website or somewhere else)?

i'm guessing larger capacity shells will eventually be an available upgrade? otherwise, that's a notable omission.

Jason, just tried to call the shop but its closed already.

I ordered one but would prefer if you could create a full package for the people who want it

-CTRL
-NTR
-Ramps i realize if the funding is raised the ramps may become included.
-N Charge

I just dont want to mess around with multiple orders

Well this is what $60 cheaper if you jump in now. Thatís the biggest temptation for me with it right to move on from my original spire.

So does this have the reload leds?
Is the firmware upgrade able via phone?

Not gonna lie, the tilt indicator seems extremely pointless.

I'd also like if you could order as a full package. However I'd like to the speedfeed, ncharge, ramps(if doesn't hit goal) discounted since I'm sure black friday and boxing day will put that stuff on sale. Saves people from ordering twice. Once for this kickstarter and once for when the sales hit.

The main reason I would buy this is the quick change lid/speedfeed option compaired to staying with my v3 rotor. Never liked the R2 rotor. However two questions arise. I would never use the tilt indicator.
Can the tilt indicator be turned off? (IE to save battery life)
Why are the color options half and half? Why no solid grey/red/green/blue etc.?

"Optional" spring ramps? Come on, guys, I thought you'd figured it out with the Spire III, nobody wants to buy a high-end hopper and then have to fork out more for extra parts to make it work properly. I understand the IR not having them out of the box, it's a budget hopper, but not your new flagship model.

I'm tempted, but even at the introductory price, with all the upgrades and shipping I'm still looking at $250+, putting it in the same price as a Spire III + speedfeed bought locally.

You make a good point, seems pretty targeted to anyone not using a spire 3 already. I probably would have considered buying one if I didnít already own a couple of spire 3

just wait till it's out for a couple months, they'll drop the price just like they did with the CMD.

I’m pretty sure the CVO specifically says it’s supposed to be used with a force fed loader - which to my knowledge the spire or those like it - are not??

Why is a black hopper $10 more than one with a colored bottom, but it's going to cost $24.95 to buy a colored top half? Seems like a full colored hopper would be cheaper. Or you know that a half-colored hopper will drive people nuts and they will spend the extra to get the top half.

Does the odd tilt light double as a reload light? Does the marker have an audible noise when low? I'm guessing neither of these are features since the ramp is an add-on and the hopper has no way to tell if it's low.

Also, what defines perfectly balanced? In the video the only thing that touched on this was a spring ramp on either side. Since this is an upgrade, does this mean it's not perfectly balanced out of the box? Where is the balance point that makes it perfect?

I'm not personally a fan of the "buy upgrade features" format presented, particularly when they're features that should be standard on a high end product, like matching colors and a ramp.

Needs some sort of video demonstrating how the modified code enables better feeding. Maybe show it ripping at 20bps and gently feeding an autococker at one ball per pull? Just interested in seeing the marketing jargon expanded upon.

Style of the hopper is nice but I'm not seeing anything that makes this a pick over a Spire 3 other than someone specifically wanting a Bunker Kings product.
