i have a valken vmax (okay hopper). everybody know that the stock prop thats on it is too flexible, well i sent an email to pinokio asking them if they can send me one of their props (they have the same fitting). they did and now my vmax feeds a true 15+bps.im still getting a spire and using the vmax as a backup

I will say the rotor works great on the etek3. A more affordable hopper that worked for me on the etek was the halo too. For like $75 the halo too is really a little wonder.

:blink: I can't believe this worked... I feel a little bit dirty. Pinokio's customer service is the best; new prop sent no questions asked!

Its companies like this that we should be supporting. I might just have to buy a Pinokio at some point.

If you feel like you actually should pay for the drive cone, one of the places you can get it is Hustle Paintball:

The prop is.the thing that spins in the hopper to feed paintballs. I have a vmax and called up pinokio if they could send me one of their props. They both have the same fitting. The pinokio prop is flexible but not as much as the vmax prop. Now mine feeds 20bps with the new prop. Go get one there free

Are we really advocating what is essentially stealing from someone who makes a good product to fix a product made by someone who doesn't?

I don't remember that being what TechPB was about back when it was just Mike, his Marq, and a table.

I would try it without first and see what you think. Some players have not had any problems with the stock prop out of the box. It's a cheap and easy replacement later if you need it.

they sell them at a lot of places...
that is probably why pinokio just gives them away like that.
they would rather have a satisfied customer who would return to them again, as oppose to $3 of profit off selling a prop.

Are people really this cheap? They're cool people who does not in any way deserve being conned this way. Few people deserve being conned. And Pinokio is not one of them.


I'm very tempted sending them an email about this so they won't lose money to cheap people trying to pull a fast one. <_<
