THIS.they probably would have killed the rotor had they been cheaper.
says who? because the only ones I am aware of that say this is virtue and the only proof they have is that piss poor thing they call a "torture test" whos only factor that can be seen as "torture" is the shotgun with bird shot but lets be honest about that, Dick Cheney shot a 78 year old (if the face by some stories) with bird shot and he survived just finestrong as a rotor body wise
you've got the right idea. the rotor is troublesome when it comes to this issue, sadlyThe only issue I have with the "how many does it hold" tests - is that ...realistically.. there's only 1 moment in an airball game you can truly use the capacity of the hopper as such... and that's the first 1/4 second after the first buzzer.
Beyond that - the only number that matters to me is if we can fit a full pod (140-160) in ...knowing you're low on paint...with the marker shouldered.
Outside of not liking stupidly small paint - my biggest complaint about my rotor is that its shape doesn't "push" paint to the front of the hopper. With a "slam" style reload - I MIGHT lose 10 balls. Using a "end-over" pod flip thingie seen in some of the pro videos... I'll be lucky to get 100 rounds to load into the hopper. On my Halo Too/B... the pods were able to fully empty.
If the Spire is able to contain a full 140 on a reload... I may be talked into making the switch.
