True Story in Ironmen pits....

This story requires a preface. lol

Ok so i know everyone is siked about the new rotors. **** i was blown away to. I was like wtf dye always takes it to the next level... Toolless disassembly.. Like how sick is that. I also checked out the pinokio loaders, it wasnt anything spectacular but the design is simple, tried, and true. It works great, durable, and holds 240 paintballs without the large nose on it (it holds 400 with the nose). Thats like 15 extra seconds you can hold a lane down without reloading. But while i was at the booth ( i went there right after looking at the rotor) he showed me nicky cuba's and mike paxson's loaders (chris lasoya also has one). I was like dang those are cool. And then he said dye asked them to shoot the rotors and they said no.... When he said that i was like.... idk if i believe that. Like why would they.... But i just left it be and continued to talk to the owner for like 45 more minutes. Really nice guy by the way, he was letting ppl borrow hoppers that needed them. YES borrow.

Well anyways here is the story. I was pitting for russian legion at the event, and the first day (Friday) that we played was great. Not that many problems with the paint and the weather. But the next day it was raining in the morning and we were getting ready towards the end of the ironmen game and everyone was complaining about the paint like blowing up in there hoppers. One guy went through 4 halos. I guess the humidity was making them expand and since they were brittle already the paddles broke the balls in the halos and torques. And im just chillen filling pods listening to these players get pissed at their situation it was either mike or nicky who just shouted amidst all that "GET A PINOKIo". I couldnt help but laugh, all these guys were pissed about there hoppers breaking paint and these 2 were chill with there pinokios. I guess that guy wasnt lying when he told me they loved those loaders.... SO basically moral of the story rotor,halo < pinokio... lol just thought i would share.

To me it sounds like an advertisement for Pinokio.

Which is why it should belong in the hopper forum not here.

I'm sure if Pinokio wanted to advertise their hopper like this they would at least use someone with proper grammar/spelling when typing.
(I'm not flaming the threadstarter I'm just making a point.)

Pinkio>any loader

Waterproof, Holds 250 paintballs(400 with extension), gets over 20 cases off 2 1100 maH 9 volts, one of the strongest shells, CANNOT break paint, has a gangstar board, and its probably the lightest and fastest high end loader out there.

A buddy of mine bought one about a month back, and it has outperformed every other loader in every aspect. And I dont plan on touching my other loaders for a long while.

yea because looks are more important than performance. In a sport where every single piece of equipment has to work in perfect unison, a working, ugly hopper is better than a good looking soup maker.
