Unhappy Need Reliable Pods!!!

hey guys. every pod i have bought has broke. ive bought from most companys like cp and etc. etc. they all break in less than a couple months. and all by the same way. the lid either snaps off, breaks, or the part of the lid where you push your thumb to open breaks off. it is getting really annoying having to buy new ones all the time. i just want to know what works for you guys? can anyone reccomend some pods for me that are reliable?? thank you guys

Get the compulsive tubes I will not reccomend anything else. I got 10 of them had them for probably 5 months and not one has yet to break.

If you are looking for a cheap reliable pod that will be it, If you are looking for the absolute strongest pod (If it gets shot the resistance of it breaking) even though they are expensive and are considered "noob pods" I reccomend Locklids.

Imo locklids are virtually indestructable from a pack shot. The only downfall is that well the lid strenght is very weak and comes open when you don't want them to . And they are very expensive.

Like I said get the pods I suggested above you will not regret it.

Fatboys have been the best pods that I've ever owned. I still have some from '03. The thing I like most about them are that they are very strong and the recessed area so that they don't easily catch on things when you dive or slide.

The only problem is that they are a harder to get now and can be a little pricey compared to cheap pods like the GXGs.

If the OP still wanted the link, i bought fatboys from a local shop (that closed down) and paintballgateway.com years ago. They were on sale at one point for half price but it doesn't look like they carry them anymore. Google them & they show up, though. They're distributed/made/whatever by Angel.

The only downside to fatboys is the lids are harder to pop open than some other pods. Never bothered me but maybe i have buff thumbs? lol?

I hate dye locklids now. Used one of my cousin's locklids on sunday for a tourney and the collar popped off when i pulled it out of my pack, spilling all the paint, then i got shot reaching for another pod. That's never happened to him so maybe i'm still just upset about it, but i've never been a fan of any pods that use collars, anyway.

I love locklids but like others have said way too pricey.

Fatboys are nice but are just a little too stiff to open imo

My all time fave is the syn shockpods but I don't even think syn is still around lol. Foamies on the lids and nearly industructible bodies. The lids are a little on fragile side but Ive only had one break from 2+ years of abuse which is pretty good for any pod.

Ill have to try the compulsive pods good price and one of the best online stores you can order from

I am a fan of fatboys although the team usually ends up getting a case of regular pods (sometimes extreme rage or something else) often and sharing them due to availability and price.
