I have an invert too and I'm tired of the awful maintence and little capacity espicially me being mostly a scenario player. I've always wanted to get a super loader but I'm not really interested in a rotor or a spire... I've narrowed it down to these two and I already have an exalt speedfeed to fit a halo which would also fit a pinokio.... What are some pros and cons of both and what do you recommend. I know the pinokio doesn't have the best profile but that doesn't matter because it would be a scenario loader and I'm kind of liking the capacity of it and now that it's only 90$ I think I'm gonna buy it.

If you are looking for lots of capacity def go with the pinokio. The z2 holds a lot less than the pinokio and since you are going to be playing scenarios you could put the nose cone on it.

If you like maintenance free, I'd go with the Pinokio. The Z2 isn't going to have much more capacity than your Invert Too because it ships with the small nose cone. If you get the regular Prophecy however, it comes with the 240 round nose and I'd take it over the Pinokio just because it's so much more practical than having an enormous nose at the end of your hopper that can get caught on things out in the woods.

personally the prophecy, it is tiny hard to shoot, it unjams itself, the pinokio is a pain when it jams, the pinokio is heavy and seems to fragile for someone to actually play with

Yes... let's attack someone who doesn't agree with us. That's a great way to go about things. Note from the mods - play nice


The pinokio is the lightest in the superloader category if not all force feeds and for $90 its a steal. For you woodsballers its practically a god send i play speedball and my backup hopper is a pinokio its just a flat out amazing piece of machinery the simplicity, battery life, high capacity and is practically unjamable buy a pinokio yea thats such a bad hopper... you WILL NOT be dissapointed I promise.

Then I'll probably go with the pinokio. The difficult maintence of the regular prophecy isn't worth it and when I play airball if I need a smaller profile I could just use my invert too

I tried a pinokio. I felt like the weight distribution of the hopper was really awkward, it comes down at an awkward angle. The Proph V2 would be a good option, you could also just cut the feedneck off the v2 hicap shell and use it on the z2

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

Mine is smoke and i love it because you can still see how many balls are left but it still looks good if you are using oily paint that gets wet marks on the inside. I would get smoke if i were you.

I highly doubt he was talking about the empty shells cut him a break how heavy do u think this thing could be when it is empty honestly? He was talking about when it was full... so get your facts before u attack him like that..

What I don't like about the Pinokio from what I've seen is that it's noisy and bulky. Personally, I still prefer the Z2 even if it's for scenario.

I love it when people talk about how light their loaders are. Once you fill it up with paint, which do you think will be heavier? The Pinokio or the Prophecy?
