I know people are entitled to their opinions... but the Rotor is made out of better material? Really?
And it is lower profile than the Spire? What crack are you on?
The Spire 260 is still smaller in profile than the stock Rotor!

thats awesome mate Spire 260 is still lower profile than the rotor and still weighs less i think spire wins only thing im concerned with is the sound sensitive sensor does it work well ? with my old halo too it was awful, therefore i upgraded to the rotor

A million lemmings can't be wrong :D It works great - no feed issues at all. I DO like the Rotor, just feel it is dated now - when there are lighter, smaller profile, more capacity models available for the same price... and Dye seem to be jacking prices up with no revisions to the tech...

Couldnt agree more, if i could get the spire i would in a heartbeat but being 15 with only at saturday job i cant afford it but defiantly when they get a little lower in price ill grab one but i do need to get a working gun first as mines in maintenance and i need a rehydro on my pure energy tank but once i get that ill grab one,
thanks for the advice

To be honest, there are a lot of markers more than capable of handling the feedrates of sites / tournaments. A Valken VMAX/VMAX2, Halo Too, JT eVlution to name a few - all under £60, I believe :)

Whichever you go for, it'll be fine for what you want - so no issues there :)

Oh yeah no doubt about it but the amount of times i get shot in the hopper in big games and stuff its ridiculous especially if im running having somthing like the spire is going to help that alot might just be my luck that i get shot in the hopper :D and that extra compacity in the 260 will help alot keeping me from reloading in tournaments alot less, laying ropes ;)

Because the roter is made out of a better materiel than the spire and is much more low profile and when you buy products from dye you know your getting top quality
I probably agree with you there the Rotor does feel like a more durable material, But the Spire is actually half an inch smaller than the Rotor, Virtue are also well known for making top quality products
