The Paintball Caddy holds over 1,100 paintballs and weighs only 1.3 oz when empty. It is made from a medical grade plastic, can withstand direct sunlight, and is waterproof. It is virtually indestructible on a paintball field. You can kick it, beat it, shoot it, and it just keeps on ticking. The Paintball Caddy can be left at the edge of the playing field or kept in the car. The patented "Flow Channel" is made for fast and easy pre-game loading. The current record is 840 paintballs in 5.79 seconds without spilling a single ball. Under normal situations you probably won't need to load 145 balls per second, but it's nice to know Paintball Caddy will perform well above your expectations.
The DX2 Paintball Caddy is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
-Did I mention Convenient?
-Kind of expensive for a bunch of molded plastic
This product is great. I bought it at the Paintball Expo in Pamona a few months ago. I do not know how I got by without it. Especially with the right pods, filling a pod takes about 4 seconds. Most pods have a narrow lip that doesn't allow the spout on the caddy to fit into so you have to be a little more careful to avoid spilling paint. GXE pods have a wide lip that allow the spout on the caddy to fit inside of the pod, so filling is very easy. The only downside for cost is that for a piece of molded plastic, it's kind of expensive ($25), but the convenience makes it worth it.

The design on the front sucks
lids are not tethered and are cheap
It is a bit pricy for a plastic jug but when you factor in paint savings from regular play it pays for itself in the long run. It does what it is supposed to do and make sure you test any pods you plan on buying before purchase to make sure that it is compatible.
Not a bad product, but I hate the logo and it is a bit on the expensive side, I would have been much happier if it would have been around 20 shipped.
However it is durable and saves me a lot of time.

Use both Tippmann A-5 w/ Hammerhead BattleStixx 14" Barrel & Tippmann X7 w/ OPSGEAR 16" Operator Barrel, Low Profile Hoppers on each.
I held off and held off on buying a Paintball Caddy as it just seems as an add on rather than something you need. I waited almost a year one I found out about it before finally picking one up. Well, that was a year too long.
Pods are a pain to fill when trying to fill them from the bags that the paintballs come in. At the field, it's even worse. You're in a hurry to get your pods filled and it always seems like there is a nice little collection of balls that never make it into your pods or hopper. I look around the staging areas and continually watch people wasting money by paint spillage.
Well this doesn't happen anymore for me!!! This sucker rocks!!!
You take your 500 count bags and pour them into the caddy. Then you fill your pods and hopper by pouring them from the caddy. This is also a great way to protect your paintballs from getting crushed in the bags as well.
This thing is durable thick plastic too. No denting this sucker to harm your paint.
How did I live without one for so long? Now that I have one, it's a favorite part of my setup. I suggest every paintballer to pick one up. It will save you tons of money in the long run due to all the spillage that happens. Plus, just the shear convenience and speed of filling pods.

Got this thingy in red because I needed something like it and looked at the reviews here. Because of the Caddy, I was able to fill CO2 after every second game with time to spare. No problems filling my pods or hopper at all. I wish the lids were connected somehow, but gee whiz, maybe I have to pay some more attention than normal. A small price to pay. This accessory is a must.
A fine addition to the ol' paintball bag. Get it.

Speeds fills and prevents spills
This is one of the many small things that make paintballing so much easier. Whoever made this needs to earn a medal. The product helps you get on the field faster and prevents the spills that make you loose five paintballs every time you fill saving time and hard earned money.
I don't know how I paintballed without this product.
Takes up more room than just leaving paintballs in bags
This was a fairly good ceal for $20. It helps with loading your hopper and such. However it will not fit pods over the spout, its a little too big. Maybe if you sanded it they might fit, maybe ill do that since i just thought of it :). I think i saw about 10 different colors at my local pball store. The container helps protect your paintballs and keeps them fresh.

Easy to use
Easy to fill
A bit pricy for task
I purchased one of these, and at $20 I thought I was getting the short end of the stick. However, this little thing is amazing. "Why not use my hands/bag that comes with the paint?", because this little thing doesn't move around and it saves a good amount of paint (<---Extreme klutz). Anyhow, it holds 1,000 rounds and is made of medical grade plastic. Stores my paint, easy to fill, easy to pour. If I was doing a team's pods I would still use this thing, takes about 20 seconds (tops) to fill with a thousand rounds and seconds to empty easily and neatly.
If you are a very rare paintballer, it may not be worth it.
If you have a local shop and keep 1000 rounds at home, you could easily store it and take it with you.
If you use a lot of paint or you do pods, this is a simple tool that will save you time. Period. Bottom line? Buy it, you won't regret it.

Invert Mini - dye ultralite barrel
This is so worth $20, easy to pour paintballs into your pod or hopper. It only takes seconds to fill up and ready to go out again. It holds a little over 1000 paintballs, i put in 2 bags of 500 and had a little bit of space left. So i would say it could have hold 100 to 150 more paintballs. I have never spilled 1 paintball with it and i have used 3 cases.
Buy 1, it is one of the best things i have bought for paintball that only cost $20.
I first saw this item being used at OCA. I was very impressed with the paintball caddy and had to have one. This item makes storing and transporting paintballs very easy, not to mention filling pods and hoppers is a breeze.
My only complaint regarding this product is not about the product at all! It is the slow customer service/shipping. From the time that I ordered this, it took over two weeks to receive it! That would not be so bad if you lived on the other side of the country, but I live one city over!!!!!!! Shipping /customer service needs to improve.
This is a very good paintball item, as a matter of fact I wish that I would have purchased two! Even with the slow shipping I recommended this product to anyone who is serious about paintball; hence, my product rating!!!!!! Some items are just a gimmick to get your money, this item really works and is worth the money.

Holds alot of paint
DOESNT FIT ALL PODS!!
I bought this becuse i needed some change and since i had i thought i should use it and so i did and found out it didnt fit 3 of my pods but the other 16 it did so that really wasnt a problem, also i lost the lid for it, it comes with 1 big one and 1 small one ad i lost the big the one used to put in the paint in the caddy but no real problem
