Picking a new hopper...
So I have been playing for a while, and I am upgrading my gear. I use to play with a DP G4 with a Halo and a Crossfire 68/3000. I am upgrading to an Empire Axe and a Ninja 68/4500. So I am having a hard time picking my new hopper to go with my new setup. I'm undecided between a Pinokio and a Rotor.
I would just like to hear some of your guys opinions on what hopper to go with and why. Thank you all very much.

Its all preference man. If you can try them all out. And don't forget Virtue is coming out with in a few days their own loader, the Spire.

I'd go with a rotor. Only advantage to a pinokio is if you're going to slap on the nose and play back in airball that way you can blast off more than 3/4 of a bag before you have to even think of podding up. With that said if you're going to be running a mini having a pinokio with a nose on it kind of defeats the purpose of a small profile marker. Not to mention the rotor is faster and would be easier to disassemble and clean.

Between those 2, the rotor. But I feel you should consider the spire and z2 as well.

Ditto on the Rotor. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a Spire but I NEED to see a durability test first. That and I am rather p'ed off about having to drop $35+ for a speed feed from a company that is KNOWN for speed feeds...

buy a used rotor ($120ish)
i've used and abused mine and love it!

i have friends with prophecies/z2's and they are all mixed meh reviews

the spire looks promising, but need alittle more first hand review on it

Rotor is straight up superior in every respect except capacity.

More durable, more reliable, faster.

Have to go for rotor as well, I've punted mine numerous times to show people how strong it is, I'm actually trying to break it
