i have recentally been looking at some of them pod filler things, you know the ones that you pour you paint in before the game and then fill everything up off of that

i was wondering how much paint they hold, and how easy they where to use, or if they are just more junk some paintballcompanies push on us becuase they know someone will buy it

any thing you know about them you should include in your posts

Just did this video yesterday on the spec ops pod loader, price is at the end.

and this thing can easily hold 2500 rounds but i would not leave it up while im out playing.
enjoy the video

I use this:

http://www.e-paintba...productid=18949

I got mine for $20. After about a year of use, I got my money's worth. Rather than dropping about 10-15 balls every time I load up, I typically now only drop one or two balls every couple of times.

It also speeds up loading up.

The best time to use it is when you are playing at a scenario where paint is outrageous at like $65 or $70 a case.

in my opinion the SO pod loader is better, its bag friendly (it breaks down fits in the palm of your hand) and it holds alot of paint, so if you and your friend both toss in a bag each and fill the same amount of pods it works out great.

it might cost like 5 bucks more but its worth it!

ok, thanks, space is a bit of a concern because i carry all my gear in a small box, and a small duffle bag, and any thing i carry means there is something else i cant carry, also the special ops one looks like it might come in handy when my team decides to all chip in money for a couple cases of paint and load up off of that for a practice

that leaves one more question, are locklid pods difficult to use in the middle of a game?

thanks for the help so far

i use a coffee cup that i cut the bottom out of. i get the coffee cup out of a machine for $.55, drink it, cut out the bottom, and it is good for several playings... it is funnel shaped, andit fits perfectly in my pod top ...going down into the pod about 1/4" . been using it for years ... fits in your bag without taking up much space ... if it gets crumpled up, so what .... fluff it out and reuse.

no muss, no fuss

i hear lock lids can be a pain to open SOMETIMES. but for the most part they are reliable and durable.

of course.. i did a review on spec ops paintball pods, i shot one 10 times at close range and it didnt break.. that vid is in my sig down below.

but of course to big wooden table i did most of my reviews at ate an SO pod cause punched a pod out the broadsword vest and yea.. bad.. that obviously aint in the bsword vid thou.. that was an outtake that got deleted... :P

I love my locklids. The only I DON'T like is that it holds too much paint for my Rotor :P

No they are great. A lot of people bash them, but I haven't had one ever open on me or anything. Flawless.

And I would go with the paintball caddy>the specops one. I love SpecOps, but the caddy I think is faster. You can just pour the caddy and the paint comes out fast. The SpecOps one requires more effort and the paint comes out slow.

im all about space management.. between gear bags coolers, grill, pop out tent, folding chairs.. any space i can cut down on using means i can bring more things. being able to fit a small tool bag and this pod loader into the nimble pack along with manuals and other misc. items is great.

You bring a grill? no I have no advice...just thought that was interesting...I've always just brought a laundry detergent bottle and dumped my paint in at the beginning...gets em nice and greasy for shooting!

I just use the bag the paintballs come in. I wrap the opening of the paintball bag around the top of the pod & dump. It's already paid for & doesn't take up any more space.

I just use my hands, but as to the caddy/so loader, the caddy is also designed to store your paint, so with the so loader keep in mind you also have your box of paint. May not save you as much space as you thought.

ya, I would go with a caddy, yes they down collapse and slip magically into your pocket but they are much easier to use. Big downside to the SO loader is finding somewhere high enough to hang it. As you can see in Thumper's vid, he hung it from his vans door and he had to squat down to load his pods.


*Thumper* you have a full size van, learn to pack better :P

in that video we were using the montero..

and if you were anywhere near our staging area, the pod loader is a beast when hung from a canopy tent =) which i will be bringing one to every game i go to =)

besides, i heard alot of people lost their lids at LL3 =P
