The Virtue Spire is one of the best, if not the best electronic loader on the market. The Spire is a sound activated hopper that will feed a ball everytime your marker shoots, meaning it will not continuously spin when low on paint like some of its competitors. One of the best things about the Virtue Spire is the wide range of color combos avaliable. While there are dozens of different colors avaliable straight from Virtue, you also have the option to add a different colored trim kits, lids, and speed feeds.
The Virtue team edition Spires are special versions of the popular Spire hopper. The difference between the team editions and the original spire is that the team editions include the regular lid, and also a Virtue Crown speed feed. Also the Team Editions are the same colors, and feature logos from Virtues most prestigeous teams.
Virtue designed the Spire to be the worlds greatest loader. They wanted to make a low profile hopper that was un-jammable, reliable, fast, and durable. They successfully implemented all of those features into the spire, along with the self-optimizing motor logic. The motor logic in combination with the spring loaded, squishy paddles means you can easily shoot any paint without modifying your hoppers settings. One of the most important features in my opinion is the tooless design of the Spire, if you've ever had your hopper battery die during a day of play, or chopped enough balls your hopper is dirty, you know the pain of having to take your hopper apart and perform manteince on it. With the new toolesss design those problems become much easier to deal with, you can simply take the entire hopper apart with just your bare hands, and then clean the shell out, or replace the batteries. Another important feature of the Spire is how it knows when to feed your paintballs. While some hoppers constantly spin or use tension to sense when to feed, the Spire relys solely on its ears. Thats right, your new spire listens, and senses everytime you fire a shot, and reacts by feeding a paintball.
While the standard 200 round Spire is enough for most players, Virtue wanted an option for those of us who like to really spray some paint. The Spire has a 260 round shell upgrade kit, that instantly adds room for another 60 paintballs, meaning less time reloading and more time shooting.
A speed feed is for player who is so immersed in his or her paintball battle that they dont want to spend a lot of time reloading. Speed feeds will significantly cut down on your reload time, by eliminating the step of removing your lid from your hopper. Now you can simply open your pod, and dump it into your hopper.
Trim kits are great for the players who want a special color combination, or just something that is different. These kits easily add an accent color to your Spire, and really will make it stand out at your local field.
