This revolutionary paint pod allows you to refill
in tight spots with one hand, pass paint like a football
without spilling, and extend your paint capacity from 120
balls to 150 balls. One bonus feature is that
this pod can be passed like a football to an out-of-ammo teammate. Two Pack.
The JT Speed Pod is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
The brittleness of this product is its major drawback.
The pods hold the paint great if you dont actually use them. It has been my experience that this product breaks way too easily. The ends of the pod are put together very cheaply. I mean you can be running and the pods just break.
I thought the first ones I got were defective when they broke so easily. So I ordered a new set and tried playing again, still the same thing. My team were using these as our tourney pods and they just dont hold up at all. Who wants to pay that much for pods that just break all to pieces.
If you are looking for a pod thats lid will hold paint in and not open up this is a good pod. But if you are also looking for a pod that can take the rigors of actually playing paintball then I would look somewhere else. Very disapointed with this product. I thought about giving it a 1 because i have went through so many of these pods but Its my fault I bought more than four.
ok well my frnd gave em 2 me with a jt speed colar
they are cool and strong
open fast once u get used 2 it (TIP remove one of the rubber bands on the top and it opens easier)
works with jtspeedcollar(could go to strenghts or weaknesses) u just slide the pod in and the balls dump out mad fast
Regular 140 Rnd loaders, not sure what brand. They are sturdier but are more prone to spills and don't like being thrown sometimes.
Original design, very functional.
Price, and the ability for rain to enter the loader.
These loaders are pretty good, considering what's out there. They prevent most spills while reloading (if using the speed collar) as well as when diving into bunkers or throwing one to a trigger happy teammate. I noticed when I played in the rain and snow, moisture could easily enter the loaders, causing a nasty surprise when it was time to reload. I was using a 4 pod JT harness at the time, and I'm sure this problem varies depending on the harness and the personal playing style. I guess for tournies and most walk on games these are very well designed, but if you are one to partake in 24 hour scenario games and the like, consider a loader that seals completely to avoid contaminating your paint.
I haven't had any issues regarding broken rubber bands or anything else for that matter, so I'm pleased with the durability as well as the funtionality of this product. The only reason not to get these is if you play in a very moist climate or on a field that has alot of sand or anything else that may enter the loaders while you are crawling/sliding/ etc.

And u can put extension on them
Ruber band breaks
Doesnt fit in most paks ill exp.
Well i bought 2 of these pods while i was in ohio from this guy at Metro Paintball(best field in ohio I-70 sukd) for only 4 dollars cuz they look pretty kool so we tried to get them in my pak but they didnt fit. So i put them in the Co2 sleeve if u have a remote wich i dont so the fit perfect both of them and i think they make a special pak for the speed pods and always keep some reubber bands in ur gear bag cuz they tend to break. And on a web site i saw an extention so they arnt 140 they are 200
I really like these pods cuz they are fast reliable strong and kool lookin im given these thing a 10 out of 10

Easy to use, fast loading
Easy to open but a little hard to close with one hand, expensive
I went paintballing with some friends this weekend and my friend has a huge harness with a ton of pods. I don't use a harness but im going to get one soon because ive started to use more paint while i play and i asked my friend to let me borrow one of his pods. He gave me a clear jt speed pod. I loaded up and put it in my pocket and went out to play. While i was playing i was sort of scared it would open up by accident but it didnt at all and didnt cause any problems while i was running with it. Its a little bit more expensive than regular pods though.
This is a good product but since im not very familiar with pods and harnesses i wouldnt know if there was anything better. Good pod, no accidental spills, easy to open, a little hard to close but overall seems like a very good product.

Rubberbands, but each pod has a built-in spare on the bottom
Very good JT product. I am satisfied. I have thrown these about 50 feet to a teammate and nothing in or on them broke, and my reload speed has drastically increased. Also, the funky look turns a few heads... These go well with the Slam Pack, but the Speed Collar and Timers suck!
-dont open during play
-made of good quality material
- opening them can be difficult some times
-rubber bands break semi easy(extras included)
The pods are pretty good. They stay closed and have never opened up on me befor while playing. It is alittle difficult to open these during games though. The rubber bands get streched to much and break. There are extra rubber bands on the bottom of the tubesthough. None of my pods have actually broken yet and they seem like they probably never will.
Overall these pods are good but if your in the pod market get the DYE Lock Lid pods they are awsome much better than these.

This is the only type of pod I will ever use. I got two when I felt the need to start using pods and while they are a bit larger than standard they still fit in some harnesses. The flower-like mechanism that opens as it is pushed down the tube is unique and very useful, not only does it eliminate accidental spills, it also allows you to open your hopper with one hand while simultaneously opening the pod with your other. On the downside, I don't think the rubber-bands that hold the front together will last forever.
This product is well worth the expense, especially for someone needing to refill often and/or quickly on the field. There's no real flaws either.
Good for tossing to a teamate, dont dropm paint when running.
rubber bands go dead after a while, kinda big
This is a kool pod, i usto have sum java pobs, and when i was unning they would pop open and spill my paint, so i got these, and its wonderful. I've bin in games where a teamamte has needed paint, and i just toss him a pod. these things a re great, and huge improvement from regular pods. The only bad things about this are, the rubber bands snap after a while, but just put sum new ones on, no biggie, and theyre kinda wide, they didnt fit in my Raven 4+4+1 harness, i had to shove them in there, but i just left them in there for about a week, and the harness stretched, so now they fit fine.
Excellent purchase, excellen product, GO BUY SOME!

Tippmann model 98 custom w/Black Halo b loader w/ 88ci 4500 psi nitrogen tank
very cool design
very speedy and quick (hence the name "Speed pods")
cover held by rubberbands
rubberbands can break
pros-1.sweet design and hint,hint,its Jt.
2.very quick all you do is pull the cover down
3. that is sweet that you can purchase extensions for your jt speed pods,because say you need more room cause you have a two hundred round hopper or a 180 round hopper,etc.you can buy an extension and I think the extensions are thirty or fourty rounds more.
cons-1. the cover is held by rubberbands and,rubberbands can break
you can get these pods for like five bucks im suggesting that you buy them there cool too the only thing i dont like is the rubberband thing
