Depending on the model you get it will hold either 350, 700, 1500 or 2100 balls.

The M350 is $34.00. WAY too expensive for 2.5 pods (140 rnd pods)of paint.

M700 is $59.00. Still way too expensive for for 5 pods...

the M2100 is $140 and that's about 15 pods. That makes sense for a big game since you can't really carry that many pods. But it's still cheaper to buy 14 Dye 160 rnd lock lid pods.


I personally can't see enough people buying these things to make a vest viable to the general market.

I'm sure MOATI could do a custom vest for you though.


Mind you having a vest in itself to hold the pods makes it at least even, no? The issue is bothering to mount it on a vest, it'd be better to have it BE the vest with MOLLE for optional extras.

Why carry 2100 paintballs when you do not have a airtank that can shoot that many shots per fill?
Coming soon.

Hmmm a 90 ci can come close, and I've seen a couple larger...

I guess it saves you time reloading if there is no "respawn" time other than the time it takes to walk all the way back to your spawn.

That is a very astute observation. I guess if you were like Iron_Man and roll with a scuba tank and a double trouble 2100 balls would help. This would also be nice because it wouldnt take 5 pods to fill your hopper, you just squeeze em out.

If i ended up getting one, at least because my team is sponsored by them, it would probably just be the 350.

In the case that you don't own a tank that can't fire them all, some players carry ammo for others (Supply member of a squad) who don't carry as much, though not often seen. Mostly in scenario.
Some people do have tanks that can shoot that much. Your blanket statement that no one owns a tank that can shoot that many rounds is wrong. I myself have two 114/4500 tanks. Using an efficient marker that's accomplishable. Not saying it's gonna happen a lot, but this product seems like it's for a niche market anyway. It might be a Godsend for some players.

Some of us have guns that will shoot that much per airfill...

We had a team member run the M2100 for a couple scenarios. He no longer does. Here is what he ran into.
No real easy way to fill during a tight fire fight
Hard to crawl through brush with the system
Kept catching tubes in doorways
More paint exposed to enviroment of the day
More than he needed to carry

I owned the m700 for a year, hardly used it, except for a big game or practice. One thing I had trouble with was that the back of the tubes would hit the back of my head when crawling and sometimes running. I found it much easier to fill at the first of the day, and hang it from a tree and use it to FILL my pods with out having a mess on the ground.
