Review: After weighing the pro's and con's of the Rotor I decided to make the purchase. After seeing it broken down at my local shop and reassembled in quick time I knew it was the start of something good. It does not require any tools for any of the basics, but an allen key is provided for cosmetic color changes. It is exceptionally fast, consistent and quiet. With the feed rate being so fast my first thought was too much pressure on the ball stack resulting in crushed paint but it's got an incredibly soft touch on the paint in the feedneck.

As for the size it's amazing how compact it looks but has the same volume of other loaders. When held side by side to my velocity jr. it sits about a inch shorter. The Rotor boast that you'll get 50,000 shots off the 3 AA batteries so that cuts down trips to the store, always a plus. I feel one of the best features is the material it's made from. It's like a thicker smoother version of what 12v revvies were made of, with a tendency to flex under more pressure than crack, hopefully extending the life of a hopper by aggressive front players. As for players who may be concerned where their loaders are on paint when shooting, the windows don't provide much in the way of letting you know what's going on. They seem more of a flair than function, besides it's too dark inside to get a quick glimpse even if they were bigger. I see the pros definitely out weighing the cons on getting a Rotor. Got a speed feed for my rotor on dec 5th and let me say it's made loading a ton better. It's kind of a ultra soft crown going in but with the harder composite on the top it won't spill any paint, not even smaller reballs with really hard shaking! Get a rotor and a speed feed and you'll never need another hopper.
Conclusion: If your new to the sport and don't want to worry about loaders get one. If you are not mechanically inclined with tools but don't want a gravity feed, get one. If you are mechanically inclined, did some research, seen what makes this work and how simple it is to maintain, get one. More than you'll need in terms of speed but exactly what is needed in all other aspects. I believe the next best evolution in design of hoppers since going from gravity to force feed
