Exclamation USF Paintball Teams Up With Pinokio



University of South Florida Bulls college paintball team partners with Pinokio Hoppers.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tampa, FL – January 29, 2009: Pinokio Hoppers and its President, Evan Estrate, have decided to team up with the University of South Florida Bulls college paintball team for the 2009 season. The USF Bulls will be shooting the lightest hopper on the market, the Pinokio, all season long. As the Bulls look onto their 2009 season they feel confident knowing they have a company such as Pinokio Hoppers on their side allowing them to shoot the most reliable hopper in paintball at every tournament and practice.

The Pinokio comes packaged with 2 fronts, one for speed ball and one for scenario/woodsball with the 140 round attachment. Pinokio's feed rate surpasses the 30+ balls per second benchmark, and is the lightest hopper on the market weighing in at just under 15.3oz per unit and just over 1lb with the 140 attachment installed. Pinokio's 30+ ball per second rate of fire is also battery friendly, the Pinokio has been extensively tested for battery consumption and has the ability to rip through 37 plus cases of paint on just 2 nine volt batteries which in it self is a massive savings annually. Pinokio will offer three color choices - black, smoke & clear with other options in the works.

The University of South Florida Bulls college paintball team has been a member of the USF Sports Club Council since 2007. The paintball club itself is 150+ members strong and houses not only a tournament program, but a scenario program as well.

Everyone that gets a gear discount lately thinks it's news. The only one I've seen that's worthy is the UConn deal.

Actually, Mike Phillips had nothing to do with the founding of USF Paintball. USF Paintball was founded and is currently being run by all undergraduate students.

what im saying is the guns costs money... i'm sure if the players themselves didn't pay their sports club budget likely covered it. say they didn't have a budget and they had to pay for it; it would likely just be a nice discount. if im wrong then that would be awesome for uconn

im sure they have a nice sized budget considering they are arguably the best/most successful paintball club around.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
