Period of
Product Use:
6 months
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Halo v35 w/ RIP drive: The Rotor is lighter, faster, easier to use and maintain, takes fewer batteries, and is better made. Oh, and it holds about 15 more balls as well.
Marker Setup: Invert Mini 3rd Gen, 68/4500 Crossfire, Rotor, Freak kit (AA 14")
Strengths: FAST
Ease of use
Weaknesses: Price
Review: After playing with a wide variety of loaders I finally ended up with a Rotor and I can only say I wish I had bought it sooner. I won't rehash what others have said but will just hit the key points:

Ease of use: ONE button. No ridiculous LED's or button presses to set "modes." There's only one mode: 50 BPS.

Ease of maintenance: Shell pops apart in about 10 seconds with one push. Everything is accessible.

Battery life: So far I've shot several cases of paint through it over several months and it hasn't slowed down.

Size/weight: Lighter and more compact than my old Halo V35, and holds more paint too.

Construction: Very solid, no loose parts to fall off or screws to strip like other designs.

I tested the Rotor head to head with my old Halo V35 w/RIP drive. The Rotor is MUCH faster and is smoother to boot. Also I counted the paintballs to ensure that the Rotor holds about 215 balls (including feed neck).
Conclusion: "Buy once, cry once." This is a very expensive loader. I ended up paying $175 for my plain "Ninja black" model. I could not find them used anywhere, presumably because no one wants to part with theirs. That said, there may be a better loader out there but I surely have not found it yet.
