Not too thrilled about the color. It only goes well with ACU or digital urban, which only works well in urban areas, night time, or the moon...

In Topic: PINOKIO HOPPERS A-5 LOADER

For all of you complaining about the price, I ask, how much does a replacement shell cost? The only place I found them online washere.

(pst - that isn't an A5/X7 product)

Lets all go over this one more time.

This isn't a Pinokio force feed hopper. It is a piece of plastic that looks like a Pinokio hopper. It fits on top of a Cyclone loader. It has no internal electronics. It can only drop as fast as gravity can pull the balls out of it - it is still up to the Cyclone to feed those balls into the action. As far as the X7 goes the stock hopper holds 250 balls and is a much lower profile hopper. If you wish to hold more balls there are plenty of aftermarket hoppers that fit the Cyclone that offer a wide range of profiles and capacities. Most of these hoppers cost dramatically less than $50, there are some that do cost that much but that price generally is only based on appearance (much like this hopper). However, those hoppers that offer appearance upgrades generally are based on a 'woodsball' theme, namely camouflage.

So again - why would a woodsball player want to stick one of these on their marker? What would they gain with the extra cost?


Agreed!

For that price it would be justified if it came in camo pattern like digital woodland, woodland, ACU or marpat.

It also has a higher profile than an X7 hopper so it's a downgrade. It also doesn't take that long to just reload a hopper, and when you're playing in the woods, you have plenty of time and cover to do that.

I agree with toastydeath.

What are the benefits of your sponsorship?

In Topic: What to look for in "Woodsball" Equipment

I think they're all the same since they all shoot paintballs. It all comes down to personal preference. For me, I'm a milsim type. I've been thinking of getting an electronic marker, but the field I'm playing at made new rules like no walking the trigger and semi auto only. From what I understand speedball markers, specially the high end ones are designed for speed, consistency and air efficiency, which in turn use a lot of paint a game. The field I'm playing at sells $120 CAD for a box of paint, so it's not practical to use a lot of paint each game.

Yeah, a TM7 or Delta Elite would be cool.
