Review: I bought this hopper when it first came out thinking that is was made by Dye so it had to be an excelent product. Well I found that I didn't feel it was excelent, not terrible either. For the most part it worked up to my expectations. Until I was at an event and all they were selling was Polar Ice paintballs by RPS, I assume they were only selling this because of a the amount they had left over from winter and spring was apon us. I was going to use my Invert Mini and with the Dye Rotor I was only able to shoot the ball stack before I had to shake the hopper or pull the trigger. So I put the Rotor on my TCP Extreme and it shot just fine. Well that only happened for about half of the day until is started to act up feeding. Now I was thinking it was my batteries, so I changed them, with no change in performance. I used the Rotor before and after this event. Other paints I have used and had to ill effects were Formula 13 by Diablo, White Box and Premium by RPS, and Ramp by Empire. Living in the Norther Lower Penninsula of Michigan I have to know I can shoot whatever paint I can whenever I want. With the Rotor I don't have that security.

All in all it is a good hopper, it just isn't for me.
Conclusion: If you live in a warmer climate then I do or don't need to shoot a ball with a hard shell this hopper will be great for you. If you do have to shoot paint with a harder shell or even reballs I would try another hopper before this one.
