as some of u guys might know from reading my posts earlier this week, im planning to get a prophecy. but this is about the rotor i have right now,

do u guys think the rotor feels odd on top of ur marker? cause mine feels so heavy on my etek3LT, top heavy, when i lean the top to the side it feels like the feed neck might snap(i know that wont happen) it just feels weird to me.

wat do u guys think about it.

The rotor is smaller than the prophecy and all loaders will feel top heavy because they are on top of the gun.

It's because the rotor is made of thick, durable plastic.

That sounds kinda odd. The Prophecy and Rotor are similar in weight and size. The Prophecy is a bit lighter, but it shouldn't be as noticeable as you're describing. I don't have a problem with my Rotor. Maybe it's just the balance of the parts inside of it?

Then again, the Rotor is just barely smaller than the Prophecy, yet it's just barely heavier. The weight:size ratio might be enough to notice.

I have actually noticed a big difference between weights. Nothing like an extra pound on top of your gun, but the Rotor is definitely noticeably heavier than the Prophecy.

For the size, the Rotor shouldn't weigh as much as it does imo.

You gotta be careful. Don't just go in there with hopes you'll be done in a few seconds, take time, make designs, put your name in it. Whatever. It gets the job done, and you feel good after, knowing nobodycan steal your junk, because your name is engraved in your manhair.

yea thats wat i thought when mike was wieghing them during his vids.

but when i went to the store and actually held the prophecy in my hand, it feels a lot lighter than the rotor. hich is odd cause they're both almost equal in durability, just that the rotor can survive a a fire, and a 2 story drop. but i dout ur gonna be doin any of that to ur loader.

Having owned both the Prophecy does feel lighter. However, feel can sometimes be a mis-perception. Once you put paint in any electric loader, they will all feel the same.

i just found this out. the wieght maybe the same on the scale but when u hold it the proph feels lighter and thats cause the rotor is back heavy, where as the proph's wieght is disributed equally, so thats wat makes the proph feel lighter than the rotor. plus since the rotor is bak heavy it feels heavier on the gun

the proph is shorter then the rotor, and if you get the 200 rd nose, the proph is also smaller with similar capacity.
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

It's mostly because most of the prophecy's weight is in the bottom, since the shell is insanely light. I think the rotor feels more top heavy because it is almost the same weight, but the weight is distributed more evenly from top to bottom. The plastic that the shell is made of is heavier.

That's gonna get sigg'd.
