On The Heels Of Sponsorships With Companies Like Tippmann, Valken And TechT, Bad Karma Does It Again

Salt Lake City, Utah - March 25, 2010 - Bad Karma, a scenario, big game and CQB team from Salt Lake City, Utah, today announced they are the first team to be sponsored by Pinokio to use the new A-5/X7 hopper line. The sponsorship includes custom tiger stripe pattern hoppers to match the team's Valken V-Tac gear.

The sponsorship coincides with the launch of the A-5/X7 hopper line produced by Pinokio. This new hopper line is specifically built for Tippmann markers that use the Cyclone Feed System. As with all Pinokio hoppers, this means Bad Karma will be able to increase paintball capacities to 250 with the small nose, and then replace it with the long nose to accommodate up to 400 paintballs.

"Combining Pinokio hoppers with our X7 Phenom Cyclone Feed Systems is going to be a killer combination," said Team Commander, Jared Bronson. "That they are in tiger stripe just makes it all that much better." Chris Frank, Bad Karma's Executive Officer and Co-Founder added, "We're impressed with Pinokio's ability to adapt to the changing paintball marketplace and make products that matter to players. Thanks, Pinokio. This will definitely give us an edge."

"Pinokio backs high-profile teams that not only play honorably, but give back to the community and make this sport fun to play," said Jennifer Chapman, Pinokio's Director of Sales and Marketing. "We're excited to add Bad Karma as a top-tier scenario team to the Pinokio family."

The new A-5/X7 hopper line is expected to be available sometime in May of 2010. Visit for updated information. For more information on the Bad Karma Paintball team and their upcoming Operation Bad Karma scenario, visit

About Pinokio Hoppers
Pinokio Hoppers is the brain child of entrepreneur, inventor and paintball enthusiast Evan Estrate. Evan saw a void in the hopper industry when he and his son went out to play one sunny Sunday afternoon. After much trial and error, Pinokio Hoppers was born–a hopper like no other. Lighter, faster, more efficient and higher capacity than anything else available, the Pinokio Hopper holds 250 rounds with the small nose and 400 rounds with the long nose. While your opponent is still reloading, you're still shooting! Our concept is simple: carry more, shoot more, reload less and WIN MORE! You gotta have balls to rock a Pinokio. Pick one up today and experience the power! Visit for more information.
