Personally wasn't a fan of the Pinokio Speed, was kinda loud and didn't like having to plug in two 9v batteries. never used the Vmax + but have heard good things about it.

My wife and I have run the Rotor and Z2 for several years and like em both. The rotor is a little heavier but has a nice rounded bottom to it compared to the Z2 which is lighter and a blockier bottom to have to look past.

But for overall reliability of the 3 that I have used, probably the rotor.

Rotor hands down for durability and reliability. Mine has been to hell and back for the past 8 years and still chooches along without a hiccup. The only thing I have ever replaced is the lid due to the latch cracking. If you're willing to spend a little more, the virtue spire is also an excellent choice. I myself have seen the z2 front nose come off in spectacular fashion on a few occasions. I have never been impressed with it's design.

+1 for the vmax+. Its like a revvy with a better motor in a raceway, and it's toolless. If your batteries die in it it can be used as a gravity hopper if you shake it hard enough too.

I've heard Vmax+'s described as Eggys with better shells. I'm very happy with mine so far... it feeds better than my Revvy and weighs less than a Rotor. It's still tool less break down, and it's sort of a force feed.

The rotor is a tank no doubt, but the speed os dead simple, stoopid fast, and still very robust, i mean not rotor tough, but i never worry about mine, and i am suuuuper aggressive!

Also, they are more money up front, but lithium batteries go a long way, and pay for themselves quickly! My busdy gets 1full year of play plus out of three aa in his rotor, i haven't changed min in my pinokio in 6 months, gotta wait and report on those

I'll also back the Rotor, an original used one or the LTR which is basically the original rotor. They'll feed faster than you can ever shoot, are stupid simple to disassemble and are absolute tanks. Only downside is the mouth is a little small compared to others

+1 for the rotor. i have a 1st gen and love it. i added all the newer bits to it and its great.

i had a scion something and it jammed all the time. it also wasnt that quick.

before that i had a halo (like the rest of the world) and i actually didnt like it at all.

predating that, i had a VL revvy

and before that a shake and shoot lol
