50rd hopper, 50rd pods, what podpack?

Well I figured I should get back into pump so I can actually play paintball, and I was hoping on selling the majority of my stuff and playing pump until I get a job.
Well, I have a Brass Eagle 50rd tube, I'd like to get 50rd pods, but how would they do in a normal podpack? (dye 08 podpack) Or should I stick to regular pods? (but they usually break once they are half empty and you jump around, slide etc?)

Pbmafia.com has 50 rnd packs made specifically for the 50 rnd pods.

I had no problems just using my normal NXE pod pack with my 50 rounders.

The hinge pack might work but I would be worried about the 50 round pod being too short to be gripped well enough to stay in place.

i've tried pbmafia's pack for 50 rnd pod pack. but have a problem with the slots being way to tight. when i reach to grab a pod i have to pull so hard that the top of the pod pops off. i might have to epoxy the pod caps on, but i fel they shuld just be little looser and with a velcro strap to hold them in instead of the bungie cord. not that the bungie cord is a problem. it's the slots that are too tight that is the problem on mine.

i just ordered whiskey-two-four's 50 rnd pod pouch. this kinda makes more sence since your shooting a pump anyways. i'll let you know how it is compared to pbmafia's when i receive it. you can see it here -> wtfpb.com

APP 30rd TacPod. These babies are nice. If you have a stok class pack, with a tad bit of modding, they would fit nice. And if your using a 50rd hopper, you dont have to be completely empty to use them.

i just use regular pods and stuff them halfway with a piece of cloth then fill them with paint. I just use the regular nxe pod harness that i've always used. no breaks in half empty pods and no extra $ spent.

Cool

I didn't buy any 50 round pods, i just cut my own. I also use "the hit" pack from pb mafia. I have been using it all season and it works great! It holds 2 50 round pods (or bigger pods if you like) horizontally on top one one another. And has a little slot for you barrel swab. Plus pbmafia packs always seem to be super comfortable. There is no elastic or bungee cord that will hold your pods "the hit" pack, it's just sewn for a very snug fit. Check it out, it's a little pricey for just holding two little pods but totally worth it.

Pods are pods, they'll break, fallbapart, etc. That's why they're two bucks and you buy more.

so, i emailed rich @pbmafia about my slot being to tight on my 5/50 pack. he suggested to leave some pods in the pack, that might loosen it up so it's not so tight. but he also said i could send it back to him so he can fix it. great guy and service!

Buddy had a Pb Mafia pack and loved it. However he hasn't experienced a wide variety of packs in general.

I usually use a normal NxE pod pack. Haven't failed me since then. ANS gear has a NxE 2+1+2 pack for a mere $30 bucks. Get it and cut the useless elastic **** off and viola!

I use the pbmafia 5/50 pack. If you got some cash to spare it's nice.
