Halo, Empire, Egg, etc... Non compare in terms of durability.
Timmy Ripper 2.5 and Invert Mini
Price. Seriously... product prices from Dye are just unrealistic.
Paintball these days is simple. A solid semi-auto marker and low profile set-up are no longer expensive to set up.
But if you want the best loader, this one is going to cost you. Keeping it simple here are the reasons this loader rocks.
It's Dye. They design everything to look astounding. The loader is svelte and still holds 200 paintballs. Woodsball or frontman, it's versatile.
You can part the entire unit without a screwdriver. Field strips in seconds. No kidding. This alone is almost reason to buy it.
Durability. I won't lie. One day in frustration over my mini crapping out for the 7th time, I threw it across the woods. The neck on the gun busted, the Rotor.... not a scratch or crack. The shell casing is reinforced with Nylon. It's for real.
Big blue LED on off light. No futzing with tiny crap buttons.
All the garbage you deal with with older loaders is resolved with the Rotor. I could continue to say more, but at this time there is no other loader that compares in any way. I've used many. If you want the best, this is it.
If you can only spend extra money on one paintball gun accessory, this is the one.
