The spire looks amazing so far and it comes in Orange. However it still pretty new

Only thing i can comment on is the dissassembly where the spire clearly
wins. There is plenty of videos on youtube were they dissassemble the spire.

The Spire is gentler on brittle paint and has greater capacity.

I like my Z2. And yes that is all of the opinion I can offer on it. Posted Image

I like autocockers and autococker accessories.

between those two, spire. Mainly because it has easier disassembly. However, i like the rotor better than both.

The spire has some issues when feeding the last few balls. My teammate has this issue and wants a rotor now. The rotor is fast and consistent because it runs continuously even when you are almost out of paint.

Rotor still has a nice capacity at around 180. It is also very consistent because the arm is always doing work

I dont know why or how you would be shooting that fast, but yes, they will both keep up with 25 bps.

I've only used the Spire once on the field so I have yet to test it more. At first glance, it definitely feels better than the Z2. I can definitely tell you that when I did droptests with the Spire it did better than the Z2.

which one:
feeds faster Does it matter? They will both feed perfectly fine within legal limits. (Again, only used the Spire once on the field but I doubt it has feeding issues based on the drop tests I've made and the overall way it works.)
has better battery life Spire (based on claims so don't hold me to it. Also keep in mind that the Spire uses only 3 AA's as opposed to the Z2's 4 AA's.)
easier disassembly Spire for sure (It's really not necessary to fully dismantle a Z2. However, a full disassembly on a Z2 is definitely annoying mainly because of the freaking e-clips. >.<)
never jams Supposedly Spire (The Z2 rarely jams though and you have the rip drive in case all else fails... Lol, no battery!)
greater capacity Spire for sure (Z2's ball count is more close to like 180-190ish versus the Spire's true 200 ball count.)
looks opinion

and which one would look better on my etek 3

thanks

my rotor with a speedfeed fit 196 balls so i dont see why the capacity is a factor when the z2 gets about 150

The regular cone Z2 gets anywhere from 175 to 185 in my experience. The nose cones allow some flexibility in that regard, also.

I was in the same position a few weeks ago. I went with the Spire. Not only is it quiet, sleek, and fast, but it's durable as hell! This thing can take a serious hit. It's lighter and stronger than the z2. Trust me it rules. The feed gets a little annoying if your gun has serious kick but with my axe and infamous bolt it is perfect. Both are great and you will be happy with either, but in the end I think the Spire is better IMO.
