I think when they talk about the pinokio being able to let water run through it, it's basically a feature for being able to clean it and to prove it's durability. I don't think anyone wants water in the hopper when there is fresh paint in there to be shot, more just to clean it.
Famousefornow: I must say I'm starting to see how this can all get a little aggravating. When you see a product you love and someone post comments that are untrue or just half true about the product it really gets frustrating because it's almost like slander. These rotor vs pinokio threads just keep coming up and each time you have to re-explain the pros and cons to everyone.
I just ask everyone keep to the unbiased facts or make it clear that you are expressing an opinion. I almost feel like I'm being preached to by some people regarding some products and if I don't agree it's blasphemy or something(not directing at anyone in particular, please dont get defensive)!
I still think both hoppers are sick and I will probably end up having both of them. Dye definitely deserves a round of applause just because of the innovative features and the rotor deserves a round of applause for taking the best features of current technology and keeping it durable. I'm sure we will be seeing more hoppers out there that will be using aspects of each of them. I'm excited to see where it will all go!
Well, not all of FamousForNow's comments are correct....... read this
"When you say you dont care if the pinokio can run with water through it mean you have never played paintball in the rain.... And you obviously havent used a rotor bc you would know the "no popcorning" feature your talking about holds true with the pinokio aswell. ANd since i know you have never played with one i cant really explain the profile to you.... Youll probably just say its huge and will assume it sticks out, continuing to talk and give opinions you have no idea about..... "
Famous for now, page one.
Famous for Now, You don't have your lid open or if you choose to have a speedfeed man, your acting like you can put water thru it during a game, first off that will screw up your balls, get it all wet and make the balls stick to the shell. Mike put a lid on his pinokio during cup to not letter water thru, I mean if like your paintballs all wet and stuff, be my guest. And so thats the pinokios cleaning feature, the Rotors is being able to dissassemble the ENTIRE Thing in 15 secounds, and clean all of it!!!! ALL OF IT, not just where the paint path is to the breach of the gun. DUH, and assuming someone hasn't played in the rain, thats not cool bud. Just because they don't like the rotor, doesn't mean they havn't played in the rain thank you. I do agre, there is no popcorning I know that. I hvae played with one, I don't hate it, but I'm not in love with it. So its about personal preference and stop trying to shove information down poeples throats unless they state a fact, if they seem to like it, LET IT BE. Your not shooting water, your hopefuly shooting well stored paintballs, that are being flod with water in teh feed neck, so I rest my case.
