Virtue Spire 3 280 Paintball Loader - Black
The Virtue Spire III is an all-encompassing upgrade to the game-winning design of the original Spire 200 and 260. The Spire III is built on technology that made the original Spire the best high-end loader in paintball, while simultaneously improving its performance, reliability, and ease-of-use.
The Spire III is built on the proven original Spire design that has won more professional tournaments since its inception than any other loader in the sport of paintball. The Spire III continues with design philosophy that’s Built to Win in delivering a loader that’s Smaller, Lighter, Holds More Paint, Easier, Faster, and Still Never Jams.
New Hinged Shell Technology makes the Spire III the easiest loader to disassemble and put back together again. From changing batteries to changing the speed feed or cleaning the loader can be done in seconds. Most importantly, we’ve improved durability at the same time by combining the top shell, back shell and bottom shell into a single hinge-mounted unit. Just unlock the shell with the press of a button, and the high strength glass-filled nylon hinge provides one-handed access to the entire inside of the loader.

The Smart Spring Ramp allows the loader to automatically sense when it is low on paint and notify you through a combination of Dual Heads Up LED Indicators and an adjustable audible speaker alarm.
The Spire III saves power thanks to the smaller, lighter Spire Drive and upgraded paint detection capability. The LEDs are automatically dimmed to conserve 50% more power after a few seconds of inactivity. Additionally, an ultra-low battery can be enabled to save even more power. This is especially useful if your batteries are low and you can’t find replacements.
The Spire III features wireless programming directly from an Apple or Android device. Download and update the Spire III with the latest firmware or just always have your manual with you. Future versions of the software will allow you to make adjustments securely over your smartphone or tablet.
The Spire III has a faster, more intelligent processor that monitors the motor to prevent annoying pulsing of the stack, allowing the Spire III to stop and start feeding more reliably.
The Spire III comes standard with a larger Smart Spring Ramp that helps feed at a variety of angles, while also interfacing with the Spire III Reload Indicator to alert you when you’re low on paint.
The Spire III G-force sensor has been upgraded and mounted on an independent silicone housing which reduces unwanted spinning and allows the Spire III to function more consistently and reliably.
The Spire III Drive system is 35% smaller and integrated into a newly designed captured raceway that allows the Spire III to feed faster and more consistent than ever while still being able to feed the worst paintballs imaginable without skipping a beat.
The Spire III Drive is attached by a smooth magnetic surface on the top of the drive, making it easier to remove and install.
The Spire III is designed to feed the most fragile paint imaginable. Newly redesigned flexible rubber fingers gently feed brittle paint with ease, while the interior of the loader is designed with smooth surfaces to prevent breakage from paint turbulence.
The Spire III flexible fingers are co-molded to a quick release ring making their removal for cleaning or maintenance easier.
