The patent pending DYE Lock Lid Pod is a first step in pod technology and a must for any serious player. The 140 round LLP is easily opened with a slide of a finger, but guaranteed to stay closed during rigorous play. Paint is not cheap--no more accidental openings and spilling.
Clear, neon green, blue, smoke.
The Dye Lock Lid Pod is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Lids jam over a while
The side bumps
When I purchased my NxE harness, I got 9 dye lock pods. I was very happy about the whole LOCK lid which will only open with a switch of a bottom. I must say, I was cool because I never expirienced spilling paint in my harness while running to the Fifty. But after a while, the pods need your help to open them. Now, I need to press the buttom and flick the lid *just like a regular pod*. Also, the side bumps (i guess for better gripping) can cause for the pods to produce friction in the harness, therefore, slower reload.
These pods are cool for a while but honestly, the Fatboys are still very good. Dye has the right idea but needs to work the kinks. For the costly price and lids warning out, I give it an 8.

Won't open till you want it to.
Easy to open.
Ok, so I have a 32* harness in which the pods are horizontal with the ground, While I never had the experiance of a regular pod opening with my paint, I don't want to think about how annoying it is that you got caught on a branch and now 100 balls are wasted... I did have an empty pod like that open on me though...
The opening mechanism:
Simply a little tab that slides down, and allows the pod to open. Surprisingly, its easier to open than a normal pod...
Great product, buy em, especially if your harness has open sides... (when horizontal to the ground)

Tough pods usually dont open
Only problem is 1 out of every 10 is defective
Theyre good pods better than regular 1's only problem with them is 1 out of every 10 dont work great and i got 1 that dos'nt really work cause it opens when i run it dos'nt lock at all barely but the other 1's are great.
So if you just bought some before you go out on the field you should fill each 1 and shake them when there upside down and make sure that they all hold up the balls
I would say go ahead and buy them cause there nice pods and thick so they wont crack they are much better than any other pods although there a little more money there worth it
once again dye makes teh highest quality stuff. these are without a doubt the highest quality pods ive seen. i was at a toureny yestuday, and i keep forgetting my pods on the feild. i had lost about 2 of my favorite fat boys, and i seem to have misplaced a new regular dye pod the practice b4. so i needed some pods. well i was there after everybody left, besides the ppl who worked there.....cause its my local feild and im cool with all the refs and staff. i was around looking for my pods, and happened to notice a extreme rage pod sitting by the back door. the ref said is was there cause nobody claimed it, and i could have it if i wanted. so sweet, thats saved my like 4 bucks. so i kepted looking for my fatboys on the feild, and the ref said if there were any they would be on the sidelines (the refs were cleaning up and put everything on the sides). well i say this dye lock lid. haha i just remember there was this a**hole team there that nobody liked. they used these. i was oh man its mine. the ref was cool, he didnt care. he told me i could have anything i found on the feild (acutally they are really cool at my feild, the jersey i have noe is a dye C4, that i found that nobody claimed. that saved me like 60 bucks). this pod is very hard plastic, so the paint probably will not break when it gets hit. the lid actually does lock. to open, push the botton, and the lid springs open.....very nice. the dimples help with paint capacity, and the pod is large. it might not fit in some packs. i would say depending on paint side, it holds between 150-160.
Once again, if you want the highest quality, get this. it really is a step above. however try it in your pack first though, it might not fit. also, get used to shooting more, cause if your using small paint, you can probably get 160 in there, and if you halo has some ball in there you will spill paint. but over all solid stuff.

Extra 20 balls per pod.
If they dont latch properly YOU WILL SPILL some paint.
Make sure you check them!
I like the design and the cap. to carry a little extra paint per pod.
I have made the mistake of not securing lids before jogging onto the field and dumping three of the six pods that I carry before a game. (Not the best way to start a game and what a waste of tourney priced paint.)
Once you get into 'the ritual' of checking lids before taking the field; they are a great asset.
My sons complain about 'finding the button'.
Best thing I can suggest is practice with them.
My teammates and I mucked about with the pods the first day we got them.
I like them a lot better than I did the first day we got them.
Take the time to get use to lock lid system.
Make sure your lids a properly seated (you don't want to waste paint spilling it)
'Find the button', you will, just practice.
Of all the pods I have used I would have to rank these the best to date.
These are some good pods there a little expensive but the work dang good....but some packs can,t fit them... but mine did if you got a pack that takes 100 round pods your scewed lol.....but when i got my pack i got normel pods and a couple weeks later i play 3 games and i spiled 2 time and i whas like wtf lol...

Durability, easiness to open, and looks
I got these pods off of action village and i love them, they are so easy to open and are really durable, I used these in a tournament and my reloading speed was so much quicker using these pods then others. I love these pods and whoever doesn't wanna buy cheap pods, buy these!

Push button lids
When i was in the cities looking for my profiler mask i was waiting for the employee to bring out my profiler when i came across a six pack of dye lock lids for only $15. ever since then i have not have to buy any more pods ( i used to break a couple here and there with my old pods). For the price and durability of these pods there is no reason why you wouldn't want to buy them.
If you want pods that don't have cheap lids that pop off, buy these pods.

Dont open in pack
Holds lots of paint
Sometimes hard to find the button
These are decent pods. I like them better than regular pods, but not by much. They hold a lot of paint but that means they must be big. They are hard to get into my proto 05 harness because that and a bunch of other harnesses because of elastic straps. Sometimes its also annoying to have to find the button in intense games.
Id get them if u want a pod that holds lots of paint, doesnt open in harness, or if your harness has noting to hold the pods in, get em

Feels good in your hand cuz of those fancy bumps
None really besides the price
im overall please with these pods there alot more durable than i expected, even though one just broke this week at team practice, i got shot in the pack and the buttom part of the lid broke so i couldnt open it when i closed it without beating it against the table. but all in all dye has a great product here, and lets face it things break either fix it or buy a new one i still have 2/3 left i just gotta find them available to buy seperate, and the price isnt too bad i think its like 26 bux for a six pack, not bad but for pods that a lil expensive, if you want them buy them if you dont want them then dont. IMO i think there the best pod out there but ive heard fat boys by WDP are good too, but who cares there just pods
There great just buy one and see how u like it and how long it holds up
9 out of 10
