Review: Presentation.....
The Dye Rotor is packaged in a sturdy and solid looking cardboard box with a color manual and sticker,once opened you are presented with a good looking hopper which looks and feels solid and well built in when in your hands,there is a lid which opens and shuts with very little pressure required,there are also small windows built in to the body to allow you to view the level of your paintballs inside the hopper.

Build quality......
Dye has reputation of making high end products and the rotor is no exception,it is made from a flexible nylon material (similar to the old Viewloader hoppers of old) which it allows it to flex slightly when used and stopping the shells from cracking like halo's and velocity type hoppers tend to do after use.

Taking the Rotor apart is a real pleasure,simply lift the front locking tab and puts the plastic tab on the front and the top part comes away with ease then removing the tray exposes the guts of the hopper and by turning the two levers inside the rotor allows the motor and the paddle mechanism comes out with great ease,this is by far the easiest hopper to strip and rebuild to clean or replace battery's.

Dye's claim of 50 balls per second is easy to justify as once you have fed paint through the hopper you realise how fast this hopper is compared to others on the market.A great boon is the lack of programmable modes like speed or tension settings so there is very little the user can do to mess things up,simply fill with paint and switch on and play.

Low points..
The only low points with the Rotor is the feel of the lid it feels thin and could break if its forced or caught on something whilst playing
Also there are issues with using reballs with the Rotor,it simply doesn't like them so if you play at a reball field then the rotor is useless
Conclusion: The DYE Rotor is the new kid on the block in the hopper market and you would expect from DYE it is nothing less than a High quality product.I think Dye have released a fantastic product with great features and is one of the very few products that i believe is worth the asking price...well done DYE
