Review: Well, I got some of these when I got my Jackco 5 because I was sick of using my VLs. They arrived and I was excited to test them out. When I got to the field, I opened them up and was happy when they slid easily into my harness loops. I took them out to fill them and that's when things went bad. Because they are the same width the whole way along, they are a nightmare to fill. My VLs had a nice taper at the top to allow paint in a little easier, but these were a little difficult. Once they were filled I put them back in my harness and went out to play. Halfway through the game my hopper ran low. I reached back to get one of the tubes and when I tried to pull it out, the cap came open, leaking a few paintballs onto the ground. I was able to close it and push it from the top, but it was still annoying to have to do under fire. On the other hand, the cap flipped open easily and I was able to refill better than with my VLs. The cap was perfectly sized for puting over the hopper lid and the paint transferred a lot faster.
Pros:
It's clear so you can see which tubes have paint and which don't.
It's cheap, so you don't have to worry if you lose/break it.
It's made of high-impact plastic, so if it's shot or stepped on it won't crack.
It's got a strong spring on the cap, so you don't have to open it with two hands.
Finally, it fits well into my harness and is sized for fast paint transfer.

Cons:
It's hard to remove from a harness
It's cap is easy to open at all the wrong moments
It's not tapered to fill
It's hard to grip with gloves on
Conclusion: I would not reccomend this to a speedballer or any fast player, but it's ideal for a rec or scenario player because it's sturdy, clear, and just the right size. I'll give it an 8.
