I am currently dealing with real life, and will be taking a break from doing board upgrades. I may resume them in the future, but as of now (16 July 2013) I will not be offering this service.

 

 

Hello,

I am pleased to offer my services to those Pinokio owners out there finding it difficult to find or justify the full cost of a P-board. This modification gives you the full benefit of a P-board (higher BPS, more positive feed/fewer hiccups) without the $60 plus shipping price tag.

My service costs $20 which includes return shipping via USPS Priority mail.

pay to ship your board to me for service (USPS Priority small flat rate box recommended with lots of padding)

If you do not wish to disassemble your hopper, you may ship the entire hopper to me (no long nose, please) for disassembly for an extra fee of $5. If your hopper is filthy I will clean it while upgrading your board, and hold it hostage for an extra $2 ransom. Please don't send me filthy hoppers. unsure.gif

I'll receive and inspect your board before beginning the mod process. If your board is not functional, I will return it, along with your payment minus the $5 USPS shipping charge. After determining proper function, your board will be modified and thoroughly tested before packing for the return trip. At this moment, I estimate I will have your board in my possession for no more than 1 business day (I will complete the mod the day I receive it, and return it to you the next day). This means that if you ship me a board on Monday, you may or may not have it that weekend - so please, take that into account. I will not be responsible for having to "slum it" with your backup hopper because you didn't get your board back in time. wink.gif

Please send funds in USD only, and indicate your TechPB username, as well as your full return shipping address.

I can fit up to three boards in a single small flat rate box, so if you send in a second (or third) board for upgrade they will be discounted $5 each.

PLEASE NOTE:

As with all of the third party mods and services offered here, they are listed in the "Voided Warranty" section for a reason. If you have a problem down the line with your hopper and Pinokio refuses warranty service, that is on you. With that said, the mod is pretty much indistinguishable from a factory P-board.

I make no expression or implication of a warranty for my work. With that said, I do stand by my work. If a board I've modded fails due to my work, I will make every effort to remedy the situation, at my discretion.

To drum up interest and spread goodwill among the community, I've decided to offer the first three posters here a free upgrade. Simply pay shipping both ways and I'll do the upgrade for you at no charge - all I ask is for your feedback here regarding what you think of the service.

Any takers? :)

Ooh damn, thats nice.
How fast does the P-board upgrade allow the Pinokio to feed to?
I noticed my stock board sat at a solid 29.5 BPS.

I can't say for sure, but I've read claims that vary from 30+ to 50 BPS. Pinokio's site claims 30+.BPS, so I'll err on the conservative side and go with that. Realistically, it is noticeably faster and more consistent than the standard board.

Okay, let me know if you can dig up enough for shipping - otherwise I'll offer it to the next person that responds. :)

If you take apart the pinokio and send only the board in a USPS small flat rate box (well padded, please) shipping will be $5 each way. You'll pay to ship to me and paypal me $5.46 to cover return shipping once I complete the mod.

Let me get a little vid shooting with my new stock Pinokio. Then I'll do another vid after the upgrade.

Got it (quick turn a round), everything tests out perfectly. I will get a shooting video this week and test the difference.

Thanks again.

PaducahPaintballer has declined to send me his board for upgrade since he is selling his Pinokio, so I will offer up his spot to anyone else that would like it. Get yourself a free P-board upgrade for the cost of shipping!

I've completed the after vid. On gun performance increased slightly. The overall consistency or at least continuing to feed at a fast feed rate through to the end was improved.

Video:


The before vid was is post #20.

It'd be nice to test a "factory" P-Board and test the difference but I'm not going to go out and buy one.

Thanks for posting your tests. If you want to test a factory P-board, I can send you one if you pay the round trip shipping, but as far as I'm concerned you'll be wasting your money - it'll be identical. I'm surprised you didn't see a larger improvement in ROF. Did you try this test with eyes off before/after the mod?

It is; but I can't do it right now - I'm leaving to go on the road for work and I don't want to have your board show up after I leave. I'll PM you when I get back in November if you're still interested.

Just letting everyone know I'm back home from work for the season, and have time to do upgrades again. I am dropping the price to $20 including return shipping, and the first person to post gets an upgrade for $15!

Hi,

I certainly will, but unfortunately, I am away from home for work, and don't know exactly when I will return. If you can wait, I will send you a PM when I get back and have access to my parts/tools again - but it could be anywhere from 2-6 weeks from now, depending on when this job finishes up.
