How much do you carry and shoot during a 5 man game?

I am curious as to what everyone is carrying and shooting during a 5 v. 5 tournament style game (local team nights or even PSP, XBall, NEPL, GPL, etc...). I am talking about 1 game.

I have been carrying 6 pods lately. Some times I shoot a hopper and 2. Mostly I shoot a hopper and 3 - 4. There have been games where I have shot a hopper and 5.

What about you? I am curious how much others are shooting and what is a safe amount to take. There have been games where I only brought out 5 and i just barely finished without running out of paint. I think 6 might be safe.

All depends on your team, their style, their aggression, your position on the field, and the layout. How many I carry varies based on all that each tournament.

For lines or tourney style games, I carry 4 + my hopper, and normally only shoot 1 + the hopper. There are games when I have had to shoot almost everything, and be down to the last few balls in the hopper though.
I normally play as a mid/insert player however.

I typically will carry 6 + full hopper and will go through 3-4 pods a game though in finals I will just let it flow and usually only have 1 pod left MAYBE.

I carry 4 if I know we're playing very agressive, and I'm playing front.

If I'm playing back or mid, and we're not being hyper agressive I carry 6.

Really the best answer is, carry as many pods as you can without it overly effecting your movement/running. More paint is never a bad thing.

All our front players carry 4 and back players 6+
I shoot a hopper and a pod per point at practice and it all depends on how the point progresses. If your team gets the upper hand you'll shoot less however if your down a man you will (probably) shoot more.
4-6 pods will be fine unless your playing like D2 and up

Depends on many things as already stated... whether or not you can lane people out off break, does the field allow moves or does it force stand-offs, how aggressive is your team and what is the level of competition.

If you have some decent forwards and play you should be able to get by with 3 pods on your forwards and 4 pods on your back players but don't let folks carry less than that.

If your team is kinda slow you will want to carry more paint because you will need to gun battle people out before you make moves.

Way more... they roll their guns a lot more and the players are all smarter and tighter (harder to shoot).

I carry 4 and a hopper, usually only drop a pod and the hopper a game, but there was a point or two where I dropped 2 and the hopper, just always like to make sure I have enough.
