ive come down to deciding which of these 2 hoppers are the best. i dont play only speedball or only woodsball i play eveything. i need a loader that fits every playing style but still feeds over 20bps and is reliable

I had the prophecy so i can say it is a good hopper others swear its the best but for both i would say pinokio its nose cone makes it perfect for long wood games and the short nose is good for speed ball i know it wasnt an option but just wanted to put it out there i never tried the spire so cant say anything bout it

z2 is fantastic. Cost's less and is IMO better then both the rotor and the Spire. Opinion is really all it comes down to anyways with these 3, they all do everything a loader is supposed to do and they excel at every point.

I'm a rotor guy but I've heard great things about both the z2 and the spire. I'm thinking of actually picking up either a z2 or a spire as a back-up. I don't ever see my rotor going down but feednecks do break so it never hurts to have a spare.

i just have one question about the z2. almost every video i see of people using the z2 they always have trouble turning it on and off. i could imagine how hard it would be to turn it on/off while wearing glove. thats the only thing that i dont like about the z2 and also that its tricky to completely disassemble

Almost every video? Please send me some links because that's definitely unheard of at least from where I'm standing.

No, it's not hard to turn the power switch on a z2 on and off... You just slide it from left to right nothing complicated about that. And no, it's not hard to do it using a glove unless your using something thick like a snow glove. I play with paintball gloves and have yet to have an issue turning my z2 on and off.

As far as disassembly goes, if your talking about a full disassembly for a Z2 then yes it can be a pain in the butt mainly because of the e-clips. However, a basic disassembly is pretty simple on a Z2 and it's really not necessary to do a full disassemble. :)

Good man! It really just comes down to opinion. And in my opinion the spire is the best :P

I used to be a rotor guy... Until I bought a spire. Either way you can't go wrong as they are both quality proven loaders. I can't comment on the z2 as I haven't used it.

I love my z2, I love the looks and the way it feeds any paint. I don't like how hard it is to break down. I will probably pick up a spire soon, and tell you about it then.
