Pinokio F1?

I wanted to buy the F1 and I waited for months before I finally just settled for the original Pinokio instead. Here it is over a year later and it still hasn't come out. I'm not looking to buy it anymore (since I got a Pinokio now) but out of curiosity, has anyone heard anything about a new release date for the F1? According to everything I saw, it should've been released over a year ago

I'm pretty sure the F1 is never going to be released. It's fantasy and at this point and I doubt they're even still working on releasing a new version.

The last I heard the plans for the F1 were scrapped.

In anticipation for the last time it was supposed to be out, I placed my Pinokio on ebay and it sold.....thankfully the guy didn't pay so I could keep it seeing that the F1 was never released.

I like mine a lot. It's a little big, but it's great for woodsball. Only time I don't like it is when I play front, pretty big target

Is pinokio still producing loaders? Their site has not been updated in 2 years.

As far as I know, they are still in business. I do think they need to advertise more and come out with some new products. The original Pinokio is great, I haven't had a jam yet. But there are still some improvements they could do to it

I did not think they were still producing anything but I may be wrong. But the deal with the f1 was there were a few pics shown ways back, all received very negatively by the community for many reasons, and they took it back to the drawing board for tweaks. Short while later they said it was being scrapped and starting over from scratch.

Personally I always felt they were aiming to improve a few of the points of the pinokio that some did not like but with other loaders coming out almost hit a point where there was nothing they could do that would really stand out or compete with everyone else.

I know they were redesigning it because everyone hated how it looked. I didn't think it looked the best, but I still didn't think it was that ugly. They should just take the Pinokio internals that they have right now and make a smaller profile shell for it. That's really the only complaint I have about my Pinokio, it's a pretty big target. I really hate the flat front of the nose. I get hit there a lot and never see it

I saw where someone else had said that, but I never saw the internals so I don't know for sure.

Yeah, I think it feeds great and never jams. I just hate how big it is. I'm probably going to get a Spire for speedball and just use the Pinokio as a backup or for woodsball.

i think spires look "straight outta the 80's". prices compared to a rotor its not worth it to me.

I wasn't a fan of the Spire's looks when it first came out, but it grew on me pretty quick. And I'm not really a fan of the Rotor. I'd keep my Pinokio before I got a Rotor.
