I take colored duct tape and wrap it around the pod one time a the top. I dunno, so it looks like a sticker or a band around it. Every one of my pods is like this, I use aqua duct tape. I've had people bring my pods back the next week because they know they are mine.

After I use one, I just throw them away from me but in my general area and pick them up later. I use empire pods, I've found they have the best quality/price for me. So if I lose or break one, its generally not an issue.

To both of you, I use a scriber... It's a pen that engraves into things... Not going to explain it in other ways because well ****... I will.. Its a vibrating pen that engraves...

so they will never be able to bs it.. unless they have sandpaper.....

I ALWAYS put them back in my pack. I play woodsball mostly, and in my speedball career I've never had to reload mid-game, so generally back on my back is where they go. If I'm low on time, I may dump it in the main pouch of my Tippmann Patrol vest, but they never leave me very often!

That would work too. However, then I'd have to get close to see it. No denying bright aqua duct tape.

I ask people I shoot to take my empty pod with them off the field. That way I can collect them from my kills.

Hahaha that's just mean Christian.

I use Proto Pods, hold nice but real easy to open with my thumb.

Woodsball normally just throw it back in my pack if I have time/cover, if not just on the ground behind me.

Speedball i just throw at my nearest teammate to say hello or towards the sideline.

Might start marking my pods tho since my team and most speedballers at the field I play at have the same proto pods.

I put them in my pockets, but then again I use 10 round tubes.

However, when I play with pods I throw them during speedball or put them in my pack for woods

Depends what you're playing. Rec I play pump so I don't bring pods on the airball field.
Scrimmages and tourneys you don't have the time to sit there and try to shove it in your pack. Just drop and shoot

What I do is just throw mine off closest to the out of bounds.If you can toss it out of bounds do it that way no one steps on it.Then just pick it up after each game

I put them back in my pack if I'm not heavily pressured, so nobody steals/steps on them, and if I dont have time, i just kinda drop them after I load up.

Do you guys just drop them usually or actually throw them?

I do mark all my pods in a low profile way, so that only I know it's a mark.

Sometimes when I get really cocky and confident [usually when I easily eliminate players in the beginning] I start back flipping my pods high in the air behind me after reloading. The pod is usually still in the air while I am shooting. I think it adds to the intimidation factor. Other than that, most of the time I just toss the pods aside like trash and forget they existed. If it is a scenario game, I will put it back inside the pack like everyone else.
