Yeah, they got negative feedback, why? because they didn't do the F1 right the first time.


There profile changes consisted of 2 mm, and 50 balls less...


this is a pretty ignorant comment. I think it was good for them to actually consider people's opinioins first before producing it, what other company have you seen doing that with the public (most just test with their pro teams and then decide what to change). You cant say they didnt get it right the first time if it never went to production.

If you would have read the thread, you would have seen that they scrapped the design, and that it's going to look different.

Actually, they had a number of Pro and semi-Pro teams that they sponsored when they first came out with the Pinokio. Like the Ironmen and Destiny. But things happen, Destiny is no more, and DYE came out with the Rotor. So there went that. It's a bit of a situation where teams go with the money, and don't have quite the loyalty that they could. Or maybe should.

Actually the ironmen were never sponsored by pinokio. Nicky Cuba and Mike Paxson were the only ironmen that used the pinokio and when the rotor was released they couldnt use the pinokio in competition anymore

And yet, oddly enough, from early 2008:

I know Evan(Pinokio Owner) and spoke with him about it. According to him, Ironmen will be using Pinokio's for the 2008 season. Apparently their back players are working on using the nose for burning, and then snapping off the nose and replacing it with the small cap in under 3 seconds........ Crazy]

First, Pinokio is still very much around. They are continuing to sponsor my team through the 2012 season.
That said, they are also cutting back some of their sponsorships. They are a very small company, and couldn't afford to pay for Cup (or, that's what was hinted at).
Pinokio seems to be turning it's focus more to the Rec/Scenario side of the game, where many more players are.

The F1 is getting re-worked. There was a lot of negative buzz around the original design, so it was scrapped and is being reworked to a (hopefully) more favorable one.

But to the poster that said all they changed was couple of millimeters, you are quite wrong. The F1 will have new software, as well as the capability to run on less power for even longer battery life.

Be patient. Evan will put out the F1 when he's ready and confident that it's as good as it can be.

Nobody knows because there was nothing to know. Pinokio hasn't made any sort of announcement about the F1 since it was shown last year.

Have you read the thread yet? Because it was posted that they changed the design of the loader, so it doesn't look like that any more.

I like the look...


so do i, don't know why everyone's complaining?

and to everyone saying, why would we pay extra for little to no changes to the loader? well look at the dye rotors, they've had like 3 or 4 versions and little to nothing has changed each time! but, people still buy them! just because... everyone wants to be "that guy" with the latest and greatest! simple as that, that's how and why they will sell em..

I really think the design is fine except for the screws....All the "high end" loaders have essentially tool-less disassembly and the pinokio does not. I mean they updated their site recently and have the F1 on there. If anyone is in touch with EVAn or JEN i would really like an official response to this thread?

I ordered a new shell from Jen and asked her when the F1 was coming out.

Her reply was "At this time there is no release date for the F1, all I can say is it will be out early 2012."


This was in November last year so I don't know if this still on or not.

I feel like if you use a highend loader you're adept enough to know how to operate a screwdriver. Definitely not a deal breaker for me.

That's what I did.... then I found out that it barely holds a full proto pod. It now sits in my closet and I bought another pinokio. I use my v2 proph over the z2
