This hopper is junk unless you treat it very gently. If you play rough doing a lot of running and diving this hopper will fall apart. In just over a year I had 2 feednecks snap. Pinokio sent me 2 replacement shells but said if another breaks they won't replace it and claimed no one else ever broke a feedneck. Just looking at it I can tell the feedneck is of poor design being very flimsy and made from cheap, low quality materials.

Otherwise:
After a year and a half of use it won't shoot more than 1/2 case on new batteries without jamming up. I have to turn it off, shake the balls free, and turn it back on.
It sits very high creating a larger target than it should even considering its overall size.

I purchased my Pinokio from ANS because I was not happy with my prophecy and I haven't looked back. The The Pinokio is reliable, durable, and fast enough to keep up consistently with all formats. Did I mention that it does not jam? Even with re balls I was impressed with how well this loader feeds. Thus far it has worked every time without fail. The only downside I have noticed is how tall the loader sits. That being said it is a narrow loader and while on the field it is not as cumbersome as one would think. The Pinokio is a great loader with tons of versatility. Buy one, you wont be disappointed.

After a 10 year hiatus in paintball I was ready to get back into the sport so I went shopping around for new gear. I had only used one electric hopper before and it was a god awful VL Revo 2. So as I was looking around I cam across many hoppers that all looked good. Then one day while looking to actually purchase I stumbled upon a video of someone playing with a huge hopper. Well me being the person who loves uniqueness I searched for it and came up with a pinokio hopper. Found one online that was really cheap. In fact it was $50 less than any leading hopper so right there I was a little wiry in buying because why make something so crazy and yet sell for cheaper. So I took the dive anyway and tried it out. Much to my surprise this was by far the best investment I have ever made for a hopper. I have dropped this thing. Landed on it. Even got it super wet(including the board) and the thing still runs perfect every time. I have yet to have a broken ball in it from either being hit in the hopper or just it trying to feed so fast. I always use the nosecone because that is what made me buy it. The other nice thing is that it doesn't spin constantly so this helps in making you stealthy as well saves on batteries. This hopper I will suggest to anyone and everyone who asks about it. Yes it may be ridiculous looking and weight a tad bit when full but when it comes down to it it shows up every time and does it's job!

I have this on my fully auto azodin blitz, tech t bolt, zero system, and it is amazing. Consistant beyond recognition. I heard customer service sucks, so i hope i never have to deal with them, expecially since i bought it used. Holds paint extremely well, and fits ever so nicely on the twistlock. And btw, twist lock is incredibly efficient compared to a feedneck. Cant tighten your twist? Get muscles lol. The ball drop of the hopper is groved on the outside, which means it really bites into your feedneck. The greatest thing about the hopper is the pressure activated ball drop sensor. This will feed as fast as 28 bps. You'll need p board, or gangstar to get it to 36.
