Pinokio hoppers have officially been released for public purchasing. There are two noses for the hopper: one that makes the capacity 250paintballs, and the other makes the capacity 400paintballs. Both noses are interchangeable with a push of a button. The pinokio weighs just 1lb with batteries, assuming with the 250 capacity nose. When filled with paint, this loader still weighs less than an empty DXS pulse. The pulse, which is no longer availablle for puchase, is the only loader that is capable of reaching the same feeding rates as the pinokio, 30+ balls per second. The pinokio runs off of two nine volt batteries and that can supposedly last up to 37 cases. Also, the pinokio has a slightly useless yet interesting feature, the motor is able to work while completely submereged in water. I suppose that helps for cleaning purposes.
The pinokio hopper can be yours for the lovely price of $169.00. Colors available are black, smoke, and clear.
