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.
Quick loading, What else do ya need?
Keeps ya in the game more
Well if ya slide into a bunker wrong you'll crush the balls on top. It happened to me this past weekend. Same thing if you're in the snake you lean on'em wrong and you've a got a hopper full of paint. Expensive aren't they?
Well It depends on how you play, these are awesome if yer not a tape player. Other than that these things are the shiznit
The concept of the speed pod is impeccable. Several strong points: First is the ease of which you can load your pod. Just open it, wrap the neck of the bag around the top, turn it over, and when it's filled just close the top. It will not pinch or break the paint as it closes if you jiggle it around a little. Second, you don't lose balls when you load your hopper and it's done in a flash since the paint just drops as opposed to the pouring motion of a normal tube. Third, you can buy externders for the pods giving you even more paint so no need for that 5 pod harness.
Two weakpoints: First, if you play often, you'll find that the rubber bands don't last. Second and most important, these things are too freaking fragile. I have gone through a dozen some odd pods already because they break so easily. Espcially the clear ones. For the money, they should be sturdy.
I have started playing in tournaments and one thing i've learned is that every second counts. Filling your hopper is a second and not losing paint is definitely a plus. But be aware that the first four pods you buy will not be the last four.
These are quick, high capacity, tubes that work great for thier intended purpose. Not too sturdy though - see below!
Ok, lots of bad here:
- Pods easily crack, allowing the bottom piece to fall off and you end up loosing all the balls.
- Pod opening isn't that sturdy or air tight
- Not to easy to open until you remove one rubberband but you then compromise it's sturdiness.
These tubes need to be manufactured with stronger plastic. Especaily at those prices. Not very good at all to be high priced and not that strong. I love the theory behind the design though. Overall, pods are great for speed refills but that's it! Sorry JT, try again.
These were my first set of pods that I bought, and they worked well for a time. Unfortunately the single-handed opening of these pods was more difficult that I thought, and I dealt with it. Because they open up like a flower, instead of just a lid, you have to brace the pod somewhere to open it, or use two hands.
They hold less paintballs than some other pods, and water, rain, mud, paint can get into the pod, making the entire pod of paint useless. I'm sure that used in conjuction with the relevant hopper, these pods might make sense, but not for a regular hopper. I've since gotten rid of these.
I would go for a different pod style (regular lid, locklid) than these.
This pod is not the greatest pod and you need a while to get used to them because they are difdferent from conventional pods. I dont use them but i had to one time because my friend made me when he wanted to use my proto pods because he didnt wanna use these. I dont blame him these things are really lame. You can fill it all the way up so theres a noise and with brittle paint it could brake.
