i use base pods in my BK pack and no issues, just have to have the muscle mass of my 8 year old daughter

We bought a team set this weekend at MVPS. The advertising is spot on - hands down the best pods I've ever used in a strapless setup. (Liked them so much I bought my own personal set.)

I have some old pods that have a lid geometry like this. I think they were angel branded, or something like that. I spraypainted them so I'd have to do some digging to find out.

I like the Paint Pad in the lid, found some old Toxic Shock Pads for my Pods that I use but I’m sure this is way better lol.

Are any of the colors see through/transparent?
All of the colors are transparent. :-)

You definitely should! The fly pack and the esc pods are excellent.

They are all semi-transparent, but not enough to see if there is broken Paint inside or anything.

The “Clear” or lightest Grey colored ones pictured above would probably be the most transparent.
You can still see broken paint inside of them. It isn't "Clear" but it is definitely enough to see broken paint, but not a broken ball that is starting to spill out.

Clear is definitely your best choice of the ESC Pods to really see through more so than the others.

I can't really speak what all the other pods are made out of. Some I've seen are down right junk. But this material not like the Virtue pods. The Virtue pod has more flex, and the ESC is more solid (but not brittle feeling).
Coaching National champion Speech and Debate kids compared to FK easy as pie my man. I got him.

So with the pods material being less brittle will they still succumb to getting brittle over time like the more transparent plastic cheapo pods do? Just curios because longevity for the pods is always a major win.

Big difference though...one of the two is being made now, and the other is not.

Carry on, ESC pod.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
