WarlockMercer Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007
Period of
Product Use:
3 months
More than 5 years
Products Used:
None. Hoppers.
Marker Setup: Tippmann X-7, M4 stock, remote line, aimpoint red dot, RIS foregrip, sight elevator
Strengths: Durable, lock-lid, holds alot of paint.
Weaknesses: If any, it's the fail rate.
Review: These are the first pods I've actually owned. I've seen alot of pods on the field, but these are the only ones I've actually owned, so take this review as it should be.
They're pretty tough. I've fallen on mine and nothing's happened.They didn't break, crack or otherwise fall apart. I did, however, break a couple of balls when this happened but, that's to be expected when 240 pounds falls on something. (not fat, just a BIG guy)
Haven't had a single pod open yet. They lock tight. Which is good. Although, some of my pods won't just flip open. I have to actually flip them manually. It's a minor thing that I have to correct. A little shaving along a rim with a sharp blade fixes it, just be careful not to shave too much off or the lid own't lock.
They're pretty inexpensive. When you look at what you're getting, the cost is actually pretty low.

If any weaknesses, it's the fail rate. I bought a 6-pack, and had to send 2 back. They just wouldn't lock. DYE was really good about it. Replaced them no questions asked. But, a 1 in 3 fail rate isn't very good.
Conclusion: They're probably one of the better pods out there from what I've seen. I play with a couple of tournament teams here in town, and they all use the lock pods. Which is what prompted me to buy them. They're tough, lock well, hold alot of paint and have a good company backing them.
8 out of 10
