Review: I have been playing with my halo b for a long time now and really one thing that got me wanting to get a new hopper was the fact that most of the time my halo wasn't feeding consistently. So I started looking around for a new hopper about 5 years ago, but due to real life stuff coming up I had to wait on that for a little while. So now that i can play I decided to go with the Rotor and let me tell ya, It was worth every penny.

Went to my local shop (gogo indy extreme...) and picked this up with Exalt feed gate, took it home and i was immediately impressed. the Construction is very solid it uses an ABS plastic similar to the old VL revvies which are built like a tank and can take abuse. The ease of use is great, in 7 steps and the thing is completely stripped down so in about 30-45 seconds your up and running. The speed of this thing is incredible, my halo would burst up to 25-30 then break for a sec then go again, not the rotor. Nothing but just constant feeding. I was literally blown away by this, Dye owes me a new pair of pants after my first drop test (jk jk). Pure awesome, and it weighs a lot less than my halo.

Now playing with it on my Ego (as well as my DM3) gave me goosebumps, I have never had such a consistent rope of paint come out my gats like that before. I mean it was awesome. and it took the abuse like a real hopper should. I really only played a days worth of games with it but I was all over the place shooting people. Also never ran into a single jam with it but word of wisdom don't let it get too empty or you will likely run into jam issues...

For me the Rotor is worth every penny, and you get what you pay for. Dye has made some outstanding products and this is no Exception. Also there are some nice upgrades for it but really stock is what most people will need. And honestly with the money you have to put into a Halo to make it shine like this, you might as well have gotten the rotor instead. Because i had to replace the halo shells way too many times plus it cuts the amount of batteries you use down to 3 instead of 6.
Conclusion: So if you're looking for a rugged, fast and easy to use hopper the rotor is for you, and if you need any other reason to get it just say "cause Vince said so and we cant do this all day..."
