So dont really have a pod pack right now, and I can get a 2011 sly pod pack for $40, and a 2012 for $50. Does anyone know the inherent differences between those two models? I have also been playing with the idea of saving up for a dye attack pack, but dont see any benefit to it over the sly because I shoot a g3, and I cant really shoot the 11 pod capacity of the attack pack. Any advice or anything I haven't thought of?

You can fill a pack with less than 11 pods...lol

Attack packs suck for anything but a back player. I have one.

All my friends say they like their sly packs a lot.

I know but I was saying the only reason to get an attack pack is you can hold a metric shit ton of pods, but its double the price and I wont be able to shoot that many pods, so are there any other benefits to the attack pack that you dont get with the sly?

You should really be thinking about comfort instead of amount of pods. Unless you're playing back or shooting paint like crazy

If you play a lot of reball then you can get an attack pack.

I dont know if you have looked at the NXE or Planet Eclipse packs but I have the 2011 Planet Eclipse Distortion pack and I love it. It holds up to 9 pods if you want and is very comfortable.

Dye packs are really expensive you don't have to go that far just for packs we're talking about like 80 dollars right I think that's insane for a pod pack. Get an nxe

Sly is cheaper than the NXE on ANS right now, and looks nicer. Plus I am a pretty slim guy and I've heard the SLY packs are small around the waist so I think thats what I am gunna go with.

Not sure about the new ones, but all of the reviews on nation said that they don't eject pods, so you have to yank em out..

Lolwut?

The Dye pack collapses as you pull pods out. Any pack can carry 11 pods, if it's a 4+

Dye pack's aren't worth the 80 bucks. I know a lot of people that swear by assault packs though.

Empire React Pod packs are worth looking into also.
