I recently received a couple of Pinokio pods. First thing I did was to see how they would fit into my NXE Elevation pod pack. The Pinokio pods while being slightly longer and wider than a standard pod had no issues fitting in or being removed. Noticing that the pod lid assembly and pod body were two pieces I took them apart. I had to pull pretty hard to separate the pieces. The lid assembly and body both have lips that interlock keeping the two parts together during use. I don't believe that the pieces would separate during game play. In taking the pod apart and putting it back together I observed that the feel of the pod was of durability and good quality plastic.

At the field I setup my equipment and filled my Paintball Caddy. I grabbed the Pinokio pods and filled them from the Caddy. I found that the Caddy feed neck (2.3"OD) is a bit larger than the Pinokio pod neck (2.1" ID). If the Caddy feed neck is off center it is possible to spill paint when filling the Pinokio pods especially if your in a hurry.

During game play the Pinokio pod acted like any other pod. The lid fits nice and tight preventing unwanted opening and spilling of paint. They were not so tight as to prevent hurried reloading. The textured body was not noticeable during games while grabbing and reloading. Using the Pinokio hopper with extended nose and having 180 round pods worked well. Using the Pinokio pods with the short nose on the Pinokio hopper worked fine as well. I did notice that I felt I had to hold the pod a little longer when reloading. I did not test or time this "feeling." All and all I recommend the Pinokio hopper. It's smaller neck is the only detractor of this pod in that you'll have to be a bit more careful when filling.

Can we change that kids name to 'Necromaster'?
I have yet to see these at any field. Granted I've play a whole two days since they came out, but still.

Where did you get yours?
