Most consistent force feed loader?
 
I know that there has been extensive discussion into this topic before, but I have a specific situation I'd like input on.

I am looking at getting a force-feed loader to be used, primarily, on a blind electronic marker. The bolt cycle tends to bounce off paint but I want to be absolutely certain there is a ball in place. I will be using it at 16-18 BPS full auto.

I know that the Rotor feeds the fastest in drop tests, but I have been reading that is jams a bit more frequently. I like the design behind the Prophecy Z2, I am just wondering which of the two, or another loader, is the most reliable in feeding.

I was talking with Empire about the Z2 drop test and they stated due to the design of the loader it will not run full speed on a drop test. Simply using drop test data will not give you a true comparison of loader speed. The feed rate you are looking at either would have no problem keeping up.

I think either would work well for your needs. Depending on how much you shoot this thing on full auto the Rotor with a Hi-Cap shell may be your best bet just because it will hold more paint.

Thanks. I do remember reading Simon's comments about drop tests. The durability of the Rotor has me interested, I just like everything about the Z2 more. I would rather a consistent and reliable force-feed loader, not quite sure which one that is.

if you like the Z2 more then that's your answer.

It is indeed probably that simple. However, the number of people swearing by the Rotor have piqued my interest a bit. Enough to be curious.

I've used my Rotor to shoot something crazy like 30+bps real world. I wanted to see what my Virtue'd DM would do on Uncapped Full Auto. I believe the OLED read 33.. That's enough for me to be completely sold on it. I dislike how complex the Z2 is in relation to both the Rotor and the Spire.

Back the tension screw out when you get your rotor, and you won't have any jamming issues unless your'e shooting oval paintballs. It's durable as crap, but it also holds the least paint out of all the hoppers.

I'm just throwing it out there, the Spire needs to be on your list too. Unlike the rotor and z2, it is not an always on type of feeding. It feeds with how fast it feels your gun vibrating. So the faster you pull the trigger the faster the gun shoots and vibrates, the faster the spire loads.

The Z2 can be configured to be sound activated so it is not always on.

the rotor totally shuts off if it's not feeding paint (other than lighting the power button led)
