Dye DM4 w/Freak Barrel, and Dye 70ci 4500 throttle. Angel Speed 05 w/Freak Barrel, and 70ci 4500 lp Crossfire. Empire reloader B used on both.
Strong shells, lids close tight.
As you can see I have used allot of different pods. The Java's are my favorite. They are the first pods I ever used and I still think they are the best. I currently use Dye lock lid pods. But that is because I play mid-back, and the dye's carry more paint than other pods. That means I have less pods to carry into a game, so I don't reload as many times. It's strictly for strategic reasons. Other than that the Java's rule! I have one left from the original four that i bought a year ago. That in itself should tell you something. People lose 2,3,4, pods every time they go play. I wont leave until my java's are accounted for.
Read the review- I highly recommend them. Better than Dye lock lids. And I have around twenty Lock Lids and only one Java. If they held as much paint as the Dye's, they would be perfect.

These pods are the most horrible things i have ever bought the tops fall off everytime i use them. Everything about them is horrible, horrible, horrible, and again horrible. One day at my local field i was refiling my hopper and the pod was shot clean out of my hand, and when i picked it back up the whole pod was shattered except for the lid.

tight lids, easy to open
but dont open unintentionally (nospills)
Apparently the collars slide off, hasnt bothered me though
I ordered dye pods from a site about a year ago. When the package came, i saw these things. I tried contacting them numerous times but recieved no response. So i was stuck with these, i decided to work woth what i had. tried them out, worked fine. I've been using these for about a year now. I havent come accross any problems with the collar coming off or anything, actually i didnt know they came off untill a couple minutes ago, heh. Not a huge problem though, unless you're on the field I suppose. I guess you can glue them down if they bother you, as I said, i played with them for a bit short of a year and no problems. Lucky I guess. Anyway, the lids on mine are nice and tight, so my paint is secure, yet they are very easy to open. My only problem with them really is the brand name, i dont really trust JAVA, but Ive learned to overlook that. IMO not bad, though you can probably get better pods for not much more.
They work fine for me but I would reccomend getting pods that are a bit more reliable.

I like them a lot . I have 4 of them and none of them have broke yet. Cool color and they hold 140 rounds instead of the normal 100 rounds. I've gotten them for other people for presnts and no complaints yet. Seem great. Buy them if your looking for 140 round pods and don't want to spend $8 on one pod.

Hmmm... hold paint
Well what can i say about these... well i went to my academy where i get all of my paintball stuff that i dont order off the web and these were the only pods i saw so i had to pick them up. and i noticed that they said java and right when i saw that i instantly thought of kingman which makes quality items..... boy was i wrong
first off i had to glue the tops on so they wouldnt slide off then the bust open will your running somewhat fast. then when i finally unloaded a pod a dropped the pod maybe 6 inches off the ground and when i go to pick it up the pod the lid snapped off.
these pods are good for carrying paint but stay away if your a somewhat experienced player
If you need things to carry your paint......these are the pods for you
Paint brakes if they got shot in the right place
Tops fall off
Okay, First if you get shot in the right spot with these pods your paint might brake.
Second The tops fall off if you pull them out of your pack by the lid, losing all your hard earned paintballs. If you want to get a pod don't get these they are realy bad (realy bad).
I would give these a zero if i could. I was playing and i pull out the pod and there goes all my paint, and i couldn't pick it up because i was under fire! And one of my pods (when i was not using it) my friend dissed to shoot and there goes the paint were it got hit all the paint popped.

The lids pop off
I bought these loaders only because it was all they had where i bought them. Right after I bought them, all the lids popped off and I had to glue them back together. After that, they never stayed on. Every time I went to pull one out of an elastic loop, the lids popped off and i lost all my paint.
These pods suck and it is much better to spend the extra buck and get some decent pods.

They look cool
Very weak shell lids come off
These are the only pods my shop had in stock at the time so i bought them. Now i am wishing the i just carried the 2000 round box on my back. They were so weak that when i tossed a pod underhanded to my teamate the pod broke in half when he caught it. I bought 4 of them and i have had to super glue the lids back on 3 of them.
Worst pods ever

I can't believe what people are saying about these wonderful pods that Java released. I have used these pods for going on 3 years, and they have yet to fail me. They hold 140 rounds, look cool, snap tight, never open during games, AND THE LIDS DON'T FALL OFF! The people who say that happens must have factory defects because that has never happened to me. Java pods are quality pods and you should trust them.
