I am going to be purchasing a 2011 reflex rail. NEW. and that isn't going to change. But i am trying to figure out if i should get a NEW Pinokio. Or a USED v3 Rotor with a speed feed. If the rotor was new, it wouldn't be a question. But it isn't. I would pay 90 for the Pinokio or 95 for the rotor. thanks for the help

I would definitely go for the Rotor at that proce, especially since it comes with a speedfeed.

Also, you say youre set on the 2011 rail new, but the 2012 apparently was a big improvement, and you could get a much nicer gun for that price used. For example a nice DM that would have almost identical maintainence.

I'd probably go with the pinokio. Solid loader. But only because it'd be new.

nothing wrong with buying used rotors as long as its a v3.
go for the rotor. if you have any issues, sell it for the same price and pick up a pinokio then. i think the rotor is the better hopper if you play speedball.

Bought my V3 Rotor used, never jams or breaks down. Only problem is the Dye speed feed. They are too weak and not worth the trouble.

I like the Rotor because it's sexy and awesome and runs on 3 AAs. The Pinokio is nice because it has a bigger capacity, but it's so big and ugly.

I liked the nokio way better than a rotor. Id use it every time.

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

I am not a "Rotor Fanboy" but I will tell you that it is the first hopper that I have owned that I had zero problems with. I jumped right to it from a velocity (and before that halo's) and the easy of use, cleaning, battery life, (using engergizer lithium in mine and have gone through 12 cases so far, and they show no sign of dying anytime soon).

I have used a nokio for a few games, nothing bad happened at all, just prefer the shape of the rotor, zero problems (except once with ultra brittle paint, and I mean ultra brittle, 2 foot drop test would result in breaks everytime and I do not blame the rotor for that, nothing was shooting it that day).
