I love my Z2. THe plastic seems a little cheap and flimsy at first, and the loading tray can be a pain in the ass to snap back in during a thorough cleaning, but the electronic antijam, the quietness of the loader itself and the battery efficiency have me sold. I have a Virtue Crown 2 for it, and with the magnets that clamp down, even losing the spring isn't an issue.
I sold my Rotor V3 ( which was my back up to my Z2) because it had all kinds of issues. It would jam any time I used Grafitti or Redemption, even when it was a relatively cool day (not hot and humid or anything). THe speedfeed provided by Dye was alright, and it did feel pretty durable. However the shark fin thing I had on there felt kind of useless becuase it never unjammed any of my jams. I would have to pop the hopper apart mid-game (often losing half a hopper of paint or more), clear it with my figners before I got it unjammed. I swapped batterys and everything and it had all sorts of issues. Luckily it seemed to be working better when I sold it to a friend of mine, but I wasn't willing to give it another shot after being disappointed time and time again.
My Pinokio is a great back up/ loaner loader. It holds a shit ton of paint, feels really solid (although the ridged feedneck is a pain in the ass when trying to load it in my Axe, nothing to bad though), and feeds pretty reliably (although I have had a jam or two). The only thing I don't like is it takes two 9volts, which are like 4 bucks a piece out at Wal-mart. Makes it irritating to feed, but the battery efficiency is enough that it's not a big deal. It does have a HUGE profile for it though, so I'd only recommend it if you were a back.
Out of all of those, I'd say get the Z2 if you have the money to spend for a Rotor. You won't regret it. If you want to save some money, check out the Pinokio.

I just love it when a good prophecy fanboy get's the chance to bash the Rotor some more.
Rotor is simple, Prophecy is advanced. If you set your prophecy and your Rotor up the way they should they will both work great.
The Spine I have no idea on though. And why people call the Pinokio a superloader is beyond me. Actually, why people actually use the phrase "superloader" for anything is also beyond me.
It's a fucking loader, it feeds paintballs trough a hole, if it works for you why argue about it?
