All you need is hot glue, a spring, and a piece of cardboard.
 then fill it up with paintballs while pushing the plunger down. Close the lid of your pod when done filling. (Note. Put your pod in the mouth of your hopper when you open it. They come flying out very fast. Depending on your spring size they should anyway.

    Ingenuity 9/10 practicability 0/10 fact is when I am rolling my gun in tournaments I am just rolling paint out pod after pod after pod and fact is this won't help as I do not know any player in the history of the sport that can say they can out shoot their reload speed, think about it you fire while reloading this avoids you getting bunkered (PSP team Art Chaos have already shown this as have Imfamous) next point in order to out shoot the pod you would have to fire 66.6BPS now I know that there is no loader that can keep up with that so there is another limitation and then of course there is the fact of paint loss losing even one pod of paint makes a difference and finally there is the fact that you risk far more paint breaks this way

    I would love to see a video of this aactually working nevermind speeding up reload time, if anything you have to take more time to make sure that the pod is close enough to he lid to open without missing and far enough that the lid actually opens

    It would work better if you could modify the mod to dump it's contents with a button on the end or something, because as is, it's just clumsy and prone to losing all your paintballs.

    no the spring gets pushed down then the pod is filled with paintballs and lid closed. when you open the lid it forces the paintballs out of the pod

    You're screwed, which is a big problem. I'd rather have a normal pod, and not lose everything when you need to hold this over the pod before you open it.

    I said that, but that seems like a waste, when I can open my pod after I pull it out of the pack and reload while shooting. This I would need to stop shooting and make sure I open over the hopper..

    Do you know if this works with a speed feed? It sounds like it wouldn't be very good. This also takes up space, meaning less paintballs.

    Will you answer my question?

    It's harder to shoot while reloading because you need to bring your pod right next to the hopper, keep it steady and pop the lid, when you could just pop it, and flip it over...

    I dont know if it would work with a speed feed, it is a little harder but no one forced you to use this pod so u dont even have to use it

    I'm just showing everyone every possibility. This instructable just isn't that great, the final product doesn't really help you. It's easier to lose paint, less paint in pod, etc. The upside, it's faster by .9 seconds.

    Views have nothing to do with it. How many people have said they followed your instructions to make this? Nobody here has said that they have in the comments.

    The instructions really aren't that great.

    This instructable isn't that popular, but I took my own pictures. They're my own instructions. It's something I've actually done.
