/e also it uses 2 9v's i believe
It won't come with the bigger nose but will be available

So you've seen it in person and assume you have probably tried it some, and you are sticking with your Rotor? Not a great sign.

Know the guy in the picture also got to play with the hopper at NEO. Incredibly balanced had no problem keeping up any firing mode. It is extreme light. Really enjoyed using it. Can't wait to get my own.

I haven't used it in a game myself, but I shot 1-2 pods through it. Worked very well and is light, but the weight of my rotor doesn't bother me, and it has been nothing but reliable for me. I'm more of a, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' kinda guy

That's a good sign. It's intriguing, I just think it looks ugly as sin. Wouldn't mind seeing more info about it.

I'll admit it isn't every aesthetically pleasing either.

I believe the only screws were on the speedfeed he had on it. The rest is tool free like the rotor, and actually looked easier to take apart. I didn't get the chance to try it myself, but he had taken it apart seamlessly in front of me.

Loader market is getting crowded - I love it!

Looks like a parting line on the nose similar to the last Pinokio for the larger nose cones, which is good to see as this was their main USP / product differentiation in the past.

In standard configuration and with a larger nose cone I'm concerned about the balance of the loader pulling the front end down.

The external screw/fixture holes on the side of the body suggest otherwise.

So not tab like Tippman, Spyder and Valken Max
So eyes? Because patent has expired?

When I talked to the Pinokio staff at NPPL NEO we were discussing some of the internals and such, its still the same "style" feed system same motor and tap, but will come stock with P-Board. The front "nose" can be removed but only for cleaning purposes, there wasn't a plan for a nose cone being based for the speedball tournament player. still some tweaks had to be performed but made of nylon so a stronger build. The prototype at the time was around 185 in capacity but was mentioned to be tweaked to get the true 200. They will still be selling the original pinokio but i do like this alot and i hope to see maybe a 260 cap come out for use back players. I've used pinokio for a long time and loved it and still do, but for speedball a little too big and I am super happy this is coming out.

No, it does not. It looks like his hand bumped into a bunker.

Loader at least looks different, which is good. Will be interested in testing one out.

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.
