Haven't had a lot of luck with my two. The nose is flat and i took a shoot there one day and boom it broke the nose lid. Then put on my wife's (she had one also) and played a couple games.Slide into the snake boom broke the neck. But i called there customer service line,and they had them replaced a.s.a.p.! They have a lifetime warranty which is great . But for the weekend baller i think it be good but if you play hard and a lot i might steer towards something else.

I got my Pinokio a year ago after working on the pinokio's website. I was very skeptical about the hopper, as I will admit it is not the prettiest thing on the market. I have used all all kinds of hoppers from a egg to a rotor. The pinokio has a simple on/off button. You press the button and if there is paint in the hopper, it starts feeding. Its simple! The construction is good, the hopper is very lightweight and feeds fast enough to keep up with todays markers. It is a little big, howerver it is well balanced and fits well on my luxe. =)

Cons: Big, expensive.
Ordered through a local shop, was curious about it after seeing a few people at the field using them. Never needed the long nose, as i play speedball mostly, and the regular nose provided adequate capacity.

Pinokio is big. Or it looks big. In reality, it's about the same size as a Halo (i compared them side by side), just designed in a way to look enormous, kinda like how Vlocitys look tall, but they're just shorter in the front. All about illuuusion. It's also very light for it's size. No batteries or paint, it weighs less than a Rotor (just an in-store comparison).

Performance is great. Plenty fast, although we play xball and were (are) limited to 12.5 bps. But it was consistent, too, never skipping a shot even at the height of the ramp. Very nice for not being true force-fed. Also never jammed or broke down. Maybe i just didn't have it long enough, but i never had problems. It even survived a couple gun drops with no shell cracks or chips.

Fits any speedfeed with a clamping collar, like halo virtue crowns or exalt feedgates (had an exalt on mine).

Cleaning is easy, just remove the nose and grab a rag. Never needed extensive cleaning, though, since i never broke a ball in it, only had to wipe down that oily layer that builds up over time from paintballs.

Eventually sold it in favor of my Vlo Jr. The size, while not detrimental at all, just didn't look right on my guns.

Bought this to compare it to rotor. Was not disappointed!

The Pinokio feeds at a very fast rate and is extremely reliable. Very durable and has a very high capacity, which is nice when playing back, as the person across the field will have to reload before you do.

Two things I dislike about said hopper is:
1. It sits extremely high on the feedneck, and I've been hit a few times on the hopper due to it.
2. Two 9v's for batteries, and I despise 9v because they are so expensive..

Not a rotor killer, but definitely the best alternative if you don't have the money for a rotor!

Pros: Capactiy, Light Weight
Cons: Shell
The loader is great, it feeds fast enough to be used on any type of marker. Very simple maintenance, is tool less for cleaning. The extra nose cone attachment is nice for people who like to shoot a lot. My only complaint is the material the shell is made out of. My friend thought that you had to remove the screws to get to the batteries and when he realized he did not have to he started putting the screws back in and cracked the shell. Any new shells are hard to find and expensive, but other than that the hopper is great
