Review: After having many difficulties using the halo B i decided that it was time to get a new hopper. I used my friends Rotor at Vicious tactics and immediately fell in love with it. it was unlike any hopper i have every used before. it was then and there where i realized that i HAD to go get one. il go more in detail about each subject.

Speed
By far one of the fastest hoppers every to grace the sport of paintaball. I did a free fall test with a full pod of paint, the whole thing was empty within around 4-5 seconds no joke. On the field it feeds as fast as ur gun can shoot. Providing a very consistant feed i had no jams all day.

Design
unlike my halo B which would always b a pain in the ass to take apart and clean i can disassemble my rotor in about 5 seconds. No tools are required as taking it apart is just as easy as putting it back together. While it doesnt have the fancy boards that my old halo had it works just as well. its a very straight forward hopper, you put to paint in, press the button and presto, nothing else is required of you. Another aspect that i loved was the anti-jam lever. instead of a rip drive or other painful ways to unjam your hopper dye offers a simple lever that you pull back. when the lever is pulled back the state of the art cone inside will re-scoop the ball and recycle it with the rest of your balls. it seems like dye always finds ways to make baller's lives easier.

Other
i have heard that the rotor can be a little bit rough on paint because of the furious feeding speed but i never encountered any problems. the scooping mechanism inside and hopper seems to slide the paint in instead of hitting it in giving it a softer feel. this could vary for each person but seeing how i never encountered this problem i can not say much. if it is breaking paint try to adjust the speed inside the rotor.
Conclusion: Over this is by far the best hopper i have ever used and the 150 dollar price tag was well worth it. this is a sure buy and it will not let you down. easy and simple to use this hopper will bang right out of the box. possibly one of the best investments that i have ever made. i will edit my review if anything changes in the future. forget about emire, halo, pulse or all that other crap. Dye is the way to go
