The Virtue Spire Hopper is the latest word in electronic paintball hopper technology with a shot activated sensor, jam-proof feeding system and a tool-less design that can be taken apart and reassembled in seconds. Not only is the Spire an aggressive, lightweight, and compact design, but it also holds more paint than the leading competitors. The Spire hopper was built to let the player concentrate on the game around them and not be distracted by their equipment!
Speed is worthless if a hopper can't feed reliably without jamming. The Spring Loaded Anti-Jam Paddle proactively corrects jams by sliding underneath and pushing paintballs out of the way before a pause in feeding occurs. A vertically stacked gearbox and angular shape of the Spire provides a smaller, tighter profile and lower angle of deflection for better paint bounce. By housing the gearbox in a vertical stack inside of the Spire Drive™, the Spire has the lowest height, and narrowest front profile in paintball. The Spire’s True 200™ shell is just that ... the Spire actually holds 200+ paintballs. The Spire front and bottom shells are made of rugged glass-filled nylon to take massive abuse. A translucent lexan backshell allows the shooter to quickly view paint levels in a single glance, without showing how much paint is in the loader to everyone else.
The Virtue Spire's ingenious shell design makes changing batteries, cleaning the hopper, and putting it all back together again take mere seconds. The Slide Lock Quick Release allows the back shell to be removed in less time than it took to read this sentence. This allows access to all of the Spire internals that are mounted on an internal tray, which is quickly removed with the slide of the convenient Tray Release Tab. The Flex Cycle’s rubber arms maintain soft contact with fragile paintballs to feed without crushing. The Spire has been tested successfully on high end tournament paints so brittle they break when dropped from knee height!
