Colors are kind of dull...wish there was a pure clear instead of smoke
They hold balls well, don't spill open, and fit in virtually every pack. Works great with my leopard-spotted NXe 3+2+2 pack. There aren't enough color choices though, but that's a strech. Also, they're really cheap and the lids are easy to open. What else can I say, they're good pods.

Smooth(slides good in my action pack)
Only hard to open when shot. See review
They are Great! They stay closed(i really don't care cause i use the straps on my action pack so they absoluty won't come open). They can take a beating. I've really never had a problem opening them when they were clean. I was shot in the tube once and it was hard to open cause my thumb kept slipping on the tab but they are great
They are the best tubes i've used so far. They are Cheap, but they can take a Beating

Quality of the plastic holding the lid.
Ive always heard such great thingsa bout these pods, and on saturday my friend came over to practice for the tourny we're gona play this saturday. Anyway he bought 2 fat boy pods for my friend so he could use them for the tourny and we practiced diving and sliding and pretending to reload. At first the pods worked wonderfully, they snapped shut and they werent cracking or anyting. Then suddenly i dropped it on the ground and pah, just like that the lid fell off, the plastic holding it cut in half! I duno if i just had bad luck or somethinb but that to me was really anoying, then later on the other pod broke the same way.
I guess theyr great as disposable pods but not to keep for long periods of time. Maybe i just got unlucky. The quality of the plastic holding the lids was just crappy. This is what i can say from my experience but we could have gotten unlucky. While they worked they were a 9 when they snapped i give it a 4 so overall i give it a 6/7, 7 becaues ill be generous..

No lid, Easy to open
Really nice pods, they are cheap too, Cheaper then Javas which suck ass, because they open and break and crap. This pod has no lid, so the paint stays in unless you pop the cap open. Really the best pods, I like them better then Lock-Lids.
Yes, I've played for less then a month and I have a karni already o_O. U may think I'm rich, That isnt true, I just won it in a drawing, along with the tank. hahahahaha.

-Will not open during play
Sometimes to hard to open (im pretty weak)
I got theese after my attitubes just opened on the field for no reason. Theese pods are great they could probally withstand a direct hit. Theese also come in cool colors. They are also very cheap I got two of theese for like $4. You will not be sad with this purchase. Theese pods are the best cheapest pods out there.
Get theese if you have Attitubes. Theese are the best pods.
Lid doesn't pop off
I was looking for some simple pods and after reading some reviews I chose Fatboys. Now that I've used them and can't say a bad thing about them. The plastic is thick and very strong - no bending or breaking here! The lid snap on tight and will not open unless you want them them too - just the way I like it. The recessed lid tab allows for a no snag operation. The price is very affordable too. Overall they have a quality feel and I can't find a single thing wrong with them.
A real winner and so I highly recommend Fatboys. They're cheap and serve their purpose flawlessly.
They stay closed. FOREVER.
Lots of colors to choose from.
Some places charge over $3 each.
Pods are pods. They hold paint. That's all they do. The only major difference between any specific brand of pod is how it opens.
Fat Boy pods will not open unless you MAKE them open. And they're cheaper than Dye Locklids or JT Slampods, regardless of where you get them. Now i've seen them cost as much as $3.50 but Paintball Gateway sells them for $1.50 each.
The downside (not listed under weaknesses, though) is that people with weak thumbs are going to get blisters opening these pods. in a case like that, i wouldn't recommend these. But not many people have weak thumbs.
Good, inexpensive pods that won't fly open. That's why i recommend these pods.

I hate angels.
I bought these to replace my Syn Shockpods (read my review for them, or just don't buy them). The first thing I noticed was the recessed opening tab, which I thought was a problem at first. But I got used to it quickly, and now prefer it over a normal protuding tab which can hitch onto something and cause your pod to open prematurely.
I have only used these a few times, but I can tell that they will last a while. The whole pod is made from a single piece of hard, smooth plastic. The lid also seems more durable than those found on most other pods, and the spring opens the lid nice and smoothly.
I really like how these look in my NXE pack, and they perfectly match my jersey which is always a plus. And besides, looks is all that matters anyways.
The only thing I don't like is the fact that they're made by WDP. I guess I'm an angel hater, don't ask.
These pods are great and they're cheap (although a littler hard to find in the States). If you don't like the feel of loc-lids, get these since theyre the same as all other pods and very durable.
What can you say they hold paintballs, stay closed and dont break. I love to dive jump and slide when i play and my pods have taken some serious knocks to no availe. I dont even have a pack I just keep one or 2 in the pockets of the jumpsuit I play in. Buying one soon caue it makes running awkward LOL For $3 you really cant go wrong here.

None so far
I use these pods in my Unique 4+3 belt(not on this site). They fit perfectly and slide out easy and fast. The lid stays closed even while sliding into a bunker. Never had a problem. these are very good pods. I would buy more of these, but i already have enough.
32* pods don't even compare.
Very good pods, get a 10
