Title says it all. It would be awesome if you stated why you choose the one you did or pros and cons of each.

I would choose the Rotor, I have one. You can find one in awesome condition for about $100, which saves you some money. It is super simple to take apart, it feeds fine (live in Houston, no jamming problems at all) and has a relatively small profile with good paint capacity. It is a really nice hopper, but I don't think you will go wrong with either.

Spire.


I have extensively used all 4 superloaders and I love and stuck with my Spire. Next one would be a Z2 with the Hi-cap shell, then rotor then Nokio.

FEEDBACK: 23/0/0

At this point i would probably go spire if i was in the market, but my rotor does a fantastic job and is the simplest/idiot proof! Low maintenance and the hi-cap shell makes it a solid choice for a back player or when you're in the woods like me :)

It depends really on you play style. If you play woodsball then defiantly the spire, it holds more paint and you are out on the field longer. If you play speedball then that is a tough choice. If you are a front of mid then use the rotor. If you are a backman, then use the spire.

The Spire actually holds a little less paint than the Rotor. We did a test with my field's owner Ryan with his spire and geo 3 back before those things even came out, and the rotor holds like 10-15 more balls. Plus, the difference wouldn't even make a change in play. When I get to that many balls, I start to reload anyways.

spire

+pros
looks great
lightweight
speeds just as fast as a rotor
not that loud when theres no more paint
never jams
if you run out of batteries you can remove the tray and use the hopper as a shake n shoot
big and wide lid
programability


-cons
expensive
not too many speedfeed choices
not really upgradable
small feedneck (it spins around on my etek)


its a really great loader with a high price tag. if you have the money get it

Ummm... No? The Spire definitely holds more, but not enough to make a huge difference.

Well with a Dm i feel the spire, since it is vibration, sensitive and the dm is pretty smooth it may have trouble picking the vibration from the dm up?

I have heard of that problem with some guns, but I think that you can adjust the sensitivity to account for that. My spire has no problem with my markers, but all of them are poppet valve markers, so I don't have any experience with that.
