Prophecy is supposed to be the fastest, Rotor and Pinokio have the battery life.

tlmiller will (probably) come in and provide details.

Prophecy is $50 cheaper than the other 2, capacity 230-ish. A bit of a PITA to take apart and put back together, but only uses 4 AA, and you can use the bone packs and other rechargeable batteries from the Halos. Sound activated. Craploads of modes, and there's always the option of the horrendously overpriced LTD board if you want even more.
Pinokio has capacity 250 with standard shell, 400 with the namesake top. Not TRUE force-feed, so works REALLY well with reball. uses a bend sensor, which while much maligned by some, is actually much better than eyes, and at LEAST as good as sound activation. Uses 2 9V. No modes.
Rotor is the heaviest, but only holds about 180. With the 250 capacity top, it's price is hitting $190. 3 AA, and great battery life. The worst with reball. No modes.

As far as speed, they will all feed faster than you can shoot. Pinokio is probably the slowest, and it can feed realistically mid to high 20's, theoretically 30's.

I'd go Prophecy. Just as fast, good battery life, although not as good as the other 2, and hold significantly more than the Rotor, while only a bit less than the Pinokio. And it's $50 cheaper.

Indeed
Now that the Prophecy has dropped in price, it's a pretty damn good deal

And as for the Pinokio...
Due to its design, it does put some slight pressure on the ball stack, so it can feed very fast
I love the fact that it will never jam, and is super easy to clean and use

It does coast a pretty penny though, so it really depends on if you're willing to dish out the cash for it

If something goes screwy with your gun and you get a decent amount of gas up the feed there's potential to break the tab.
Sound activation on the other hand, not so much.

Tab sensor was inferior in the ricochet hoppers and unless things have changed significantly I would say it still holds true today.
*Only my opinion, some share it and some do not.*

They changed the material the tab is made of. On the Pinokio, it's nearly indestructible.

Well that's good to hear.
I still say sound and RF are better but to each his own.

(You've got me contemplating picking one up...)

If you can find one cheap, I'd definitely do it. If for no other reason than if you ever shoot reball, nothing is better than the Pinokio with it.

Reball isn't an option around here.

Yeah, not really an option around here either. I have 400 just so that I can chrono my markers at my house and tune them without having to run to the store and buy paint, but they've never been out of my house.

I have reballs for that very same reason

I saw a Pinokio for brand new on sale a little while back for $99.99
I was pretty pissed that I bought mine for more...

And they aren't made any more
I wonder why...

I'd pick one up for $20 as a backup, but not as a main

Was it a loudmouth? If so, it's not a bad hopper. Similar to the original HaloB, except always on with a magnetic clutch system to avoid breaking paint. Also really bad on batteries because the 440 motor is far too much faster than is needed and it runs constantly.

If it wasn't a loudmouth, it's garbage.

Drop tests have little to do with on gun feed rates.
