View loader 2 pod holder (terrible compared to this)
03 VF Autococker
CP Nickel drop forward
12" Smart Parts Teardrop barrel
Very comfortable, holds plenty of balls for rec play, looks sleek
Hard to clean, balls will not bounce off it, hard to put pods back
I play rec ball just about every weekend, and before using this product I was using a cheapo viewloader thing that only holds 2 100rnd pods and is stapperd on by a belt that comes with it. Well I decided to get this new one because basically I was running out of paint when playing speedball, and to my suprise it was far more comfortable. Because it comes with a little back support pad, that cushions your lower back (feels just like a back support strap), I would say wearing it is almost more comfortable than wearing nothing at all. Plus there is a little pouch that will securley hold keys and money in.
Also for the general purpose of the weekend warrior, four 140rnd pods is more than enough to get you through a game. The only problem is that once a pod is used, you would like to idealy just throw it on the ground after loading. Well I quickly had 3 pods stolen or lost that way so I had to teach myself how to strap these things back in after loading. Its not a big deal, but it is annoying and you can lose your concentration pretty easily if you get frustrated.
Another minor problem is that if a ball hits it anywhere, you can pretty much assure a break. Also it is difficult to clean mud and paint from it, but that only really matters if you are a clean freak like me (I spend 2-3 hours cleaning my gear after each day of play).
If you are a normal rec-ball player and don't want to worry about running out of paint this product is definitley for you. At 30$ it won't hurt your wallet much either. I give this product a 9 because it's not perfect but has more than lived up to my expectations.
