Who still exclusively uses the "rain" lid?

Just wondering if anyone out there is still sticking to the old default rain lid like myself.

Personally I was never a fan of the speed feeds. The open finger designs can get paint dirty and I spill paint more frequently. Plus there's something elegant about opening a lid, dumping a pod, re-closing the lid.

Any other psychopaths out there that empathize with me?

I play a lot of hopper ball and use a lid when I do. No reason to risk a shot through the speed feed if you are only reloading between games.

But if I am carrying paint on the field, speed feed every time.

I’m in the exact same boat as muppet. I use my r2 as my hopper ball loader with the normal lid in either normal or hicap, and my spire 3 or Ctrl with Speedfeeds.

I've never liked speed feeds, always use the stock lid.

Reason ? I can get an extra 15-20 balls in the hopper.

I use Pinocchio pods that hold roughly 195, that extra 20 could mean the difference between completely emptying the pod or not.
