What ever happened to the Pinokio pump hopper?

Recently I've been looking around at some agitating and force-fed hopper options for playing pump and somehow ended up finding threads from 2009-10 talking about it. Seemed like a great idea and was supposedly being released by the end of 2010. Obviously it never made it into production but does anyone know why? I'm sure depending on the price there'd be a market for it.

Market probably wasn't there. Pump was kind of a niche thing around that time with all the new electros coming out.

I would love a force feed Pinokio for pump play! A mini speed.

I am betting there wouldn't be enough interest to make the mini speed loader pay for its self, So pinko probably wont even make one,

This is all very true it seems. Even the Pico hopper shell which I thought would do very well is supposedly being/is discontinued. I think i'll pick up a Jt revolution and try to do one of the 100rnd mods

The new GoG 100 round hopper seems to feed really well. After more testing I'm hoping to replace my modded sport shot with it.

Normally for serious games I use the modded sport shot because it has an eye and paddles, almost guaranteeing me a ball in chamber every shot. It's much lighter than a Pico (I own a pico as well) and easier on paint. The chopped Revy isn't a bad plan either; a couple of my teammates use those with success.
