If you put your purse down and stop complaining about the looks, and realize you buy a electric hopper to reliably feed paintballs into your expensive gun... And the pinokio new is like 80 bucks or less now?

It holds as much paint as a rotor or a spire with the optional big shells that you have to buy extra. It comes with the gigantic nosecone for free if you decide you want call of duty m249 extended mag capacity

Its the lightest hopper unless the new speed is lighter

Its somehow never jams ever. Never breaks paint

The feedneck has ribs built into it so its really strong

The battery life is insane. Toolless battery door. Simple on off with 1 push. Uses the same batteries as your expensive *** gun does so you only have to buy one kind. Gun about to die? Put the low battery in the pinok and swap the higher one into the gun.

The lid actually has a nice big lip so its super easy to open if you don't have or want a speed feed

If you get shot through a speed feed into your hopper or you load brokeb paint you can just take the "gay" nosecone piece off and easily clean it out.

They are nice loaders but honestly its a rebranded Ricochet. Not necessarily a bad thing though. They don't have the loading performance of the rotor or Halo/Prophecy type loaders but with today's politically correct rates of fire you don't need it either.

Not anymore (sold my classic Pinokio for my Spire I'm currently using). It never jammed or broke paint and it always fed consistently. Only reason I got rid of it was because it was so big and I really didn't need the extra capacity.

I will also say that I am not super impressed with Pinokio's shells or the fact that they still use screws that thread into plastic. While its not a bad clear polycarbonate, it isn't anywhere near as robust as the nylon shells on the Rotor or Spire. The new Speed has the new shells but again the choice of screws threading into plastic.

Get a speed it's fast small if you like small ways to clean amazing battery life will feed any paint unlike rotors I wish pinokio would make a small capacity nose for the speech because it holds about a full dye lock lid and a little bit more so about 175
If you have money to blow get a spire a pinokio speed or regular is a cheaper spire in my opinion

The Pinokio is good if you want reliable, basic, and affordable (especially if you get a used classic Pinokio). But my Spire definitely has some features that are much nicer than my Pinokio had.

True but for the price in my opinion it's a similar but better velocity but spire is luxurious the pinokio user friendly with speed lets just say the spire is for note techy people but thy pinokio for the price is a good hopped...user friendly like I said

I own and use a Speed. The original Pinokio was just to large and awkward for me.

However the Speed changed that.

Glad to see some love for pinokio's, I freaking love my classic one. ALWAYS get comments and even get cracked on about mine sometimes. Its ok though though, I just laugh when i'm shooting them while they have to reload or clear a jam

I bought one used and won one on ********** for like 3 bucks. I love both of them and really want the speed now. I love my spires as well.

Will the speed have a nose for it).
