Virtue Spire Limited Edition Beast Paintball Loader - Foliage Green
"This new Foliage Green Grey is definitely the best looking Spire yet," said Bains. "I wanted a color which was unique, looked totally awesome, but still fit in with my relaxed style. I've been using a prototype Beast shell in the FGG color and I can't count the number of compliments I've had."
In addition to the custom Foliage Green Grey shells, the Beast 260 and Beast 200 are the only Spires to come with an all black tray. "Dave was quite insistent that the Beast Spires come with a black tray. At first, we weren't thrilled at having to run special colored trays just for Dave, but the way he squeezed my arm and shook my hand at the same time, I felt we had no choice but to agree," said Chris Williams of Virtue.
In August, 2012 Virtue Paintball unveiled the Spire. Its purpose was to deliver to the best players in the world a jam-proof feeding system, fast tool-less assembly, in an aggressive, light weight, compact design that holds more paint than its competitors. Today, more and more teams are upgrading to the Spire. Find out why by checking out the Virtue Spire at your local field or pro shop.
Dave Bains' Beast Spire joins the ranks of the Impact Spire, Russian Legion Spire, and CP Raiders Spire - but Dave, who leads the pro division in the Winfluence ranking is the only one to get his own personal edition Spire. In the words of Matt Marshall, "That's why you pay Dave Bains."
The Spire is the first "non-aftermarket" product by Virtue, which allowed us to design and optimized the hardware and software from the ground up.
Fast and Jam-Proof Feeding
With an Intelligent Shot Activated G-Force sensor, the Spire sits at the top with the fastest feeding loaders in paintball, but speed doesn't count for much unless a hopper can also feed reliably without jams. The Spring Loaded Anti-Jam Paddle seamlessly prevents jams by sliding underneath and pushing jams out of the way before a pause in feeding occurs.
High Capacity in a Small Package
Play with a smaller profile thanks to the vertically stacked gearbox and the unique angular shape of the Spire. 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. Not only that, but the Spire's True 200 rating is not just an optimistic product description--the Spire actually holds 200+ paintballs.
Fastest To Take Apart and Reassemble
Changing batteries, cleaning the hopper, and most importantly, putting it all back together again was never so easy. The Slide Lock Quick Release allows the back shell to be removed in less time than it takes to read this sentence. From there, all of the Spire internals are mounted on an internal tray, which is quickly removed with the slide of the convenient Tray Release Tab.
Soft on Brittle Paint
If the gun can shoot it, the Spire's Flex Cycle will feed it. The Flex Cycle's rubber arms have a soft touch, which feeds brittle paint with ease. The Spire has been tested successfully on high end tournament paints so brittle they break when dropped from knee height!
Monitor Paint Levels at a Single Glance
Never start a game with less than a full loader, and stop wasting precious time opening the lid to see how much paint is left during crucial moments. A translucent backshell allows the shooter to quickly view paint levels in a single glance, without revealing how much paint is in the loader to everyone else.
High Performance That's Easy to Use
Reload with ease thanks to the extra large wide mouth lid. Breathe a sigh of relief with the simple "on/off" operation, featuring self-optimizing motor logic. This means more time playing on the field without fiddling with settings. But die-hard tweakers don't worry, as the Spire still has some adjustable settings for those who prefer to tinker.
The Spire front and bottom shells are made of rugged glass-filled nylon, while the back shell is made from impact modified lexan.
Optional Quick Change Speed Feed Sold Separately
The Spire Crown2 comes with its own built-in hinged lid for easy bag-reloading in the pits with a secure snap fit. When those rain clouds make an appearance, the Spire Crown2 Quick Release back shell allows for changing back and forth from Speed Feed to Lid in mere seconds.
