Anyone notice how it looks like it has a shark fin on top lol?

If this looks like a high cap rotor, no way in hell I'm buying it. Z2 and Rotor are the perfect loader sizes.

Hopefully it doesn't have the same issue as the Z2 does, where you have to shake it to dislodge paintballs from the front cone. It gets annoying after a while.

At this point I don't even care any more. Virtue's dragging this out longer than they need to. It doesn't appear to be revolutionary in any special way that would make me drop any of my current loaders to buy one. I applaud them for their ability to keep everything secret and release info on their terms, but it's time to show the product.


They sure know how to tease.

Are you referring to how the Rotor balances, or just the fact that the feed system is at the front?

On the z2 balls stay in the front so you have tilt the gun back so you can feed them.
You don't have to do on that rotor.

Oh. Well, that has nothing to do with where the drive cone is situated, and everything do to with the shape of the inside of the nose. Also, I get paint in the nose of my Rotor all the time that won't feed, just becuase of how the tray was designed, and you have to maneuver the Rotor to get it to feed. I like to call it the "Rotor tilt" in honor of having to tilt the Rotor backwards all the time to get it into the drive system.

Am i the only one seeing that everyone is trying to get into the "high end loader" market? I think the low end needs a new loader, since it's basically dominated by halo's

Halos were high end loaders they just got old and outdated yet they still perform just as good.

I'd say the entry marketplace needs a loader, something that feeds 15bps, 200ball cap maybe less, a pain to take apart just something cheap and not the stupid overdrive. A revvy would be great if they were still in production

I'll stick with a Pinokio, I've gotten so used to it now that I'll lay down a bunch of paint and go to dump a pod in a Rotor just to have it overflow and I break into paint rage.

Well, to start, it's $50. And it that's a damn fine budget loader. I consider it a budget loader, cause it's less than a third of the price of a brand new rotor or Z2, yet still works perfectly fine for anyone on a budget.

There is only so much you can do with a loaders looks. They are all gonna look a like and since the rotor is probably the most popular every new loader that comes out "looks like a rotor". Its whats inside that counts.

i wonder what advantages it might have over the other super loaders?

being gentle on paint - Z2 & pinokio
feed rate - all
simplicity - rotor & pinokio
durability- rotor/ pinokio
board features - Z2
profile - Z2 / Rotor
capacity - pinokio


IMO it has to be a contender in most of these categories to really be consitered "better"
