I go to hollywood sports paintball park, and first time i went everything was rented but my dad helped me and I didn't know much about the pods. So I went there a few times and my personal pods got stolen. So I wanted to know If I could rent pods at hollywood sports?

I don't know about renting, but the field I used to go to usually had a box of random pods they had picked up, and you could buy them for like a buck a piece. I'd go online to their website, find their number, and call them. They'll be able to give you a better answer than anybody on here will be able to, and they're only a phone call away. And since it's the weekend, I bet someone will be there to answer the phone.

If you are playing outside of a team environment, I would recommend returning the pods to your pack instead of tossing them during play.

the thing is I don't have time to put them back: well I will practice that.

You can rent pods from Hollywood Sports. If you are worried about them being stolen, just keep it in your pod pack. I sprayed painted my clear pods with a stripe of black and gold to identify them.

The trick to pods is never buy them so they are never stolen. I have maybe 2 dozen pods none of which I purchased.

I don't think so. At my local field, pods get left on the field all the time. The refs just pick them up and they sell them behind the rental counter for $1.00 a piece.

Ok and I guess I need to practice putting my pods back in my pack in the middle of a game.

Nobody at my field has ever had a pod stolen. (That I've heard or seen) Probably because my field is pretty ghetto and everyone expects things to get stolen. Nobody throws their pods at my field.

Purple pods. Sexy as hell and I can always identify which are mine.

Put your pods back in your harness.

You can get pods for under $2 new so why rent? What if a rented one gets picked up and stolen?

If you can't get your pods back in you might need a new harness. What do you have?

Only in the most intense fire fights should you not have time to slip one back in. It shouldn't be a big deal on most of HSP's fields until you get into speed ball and even then normally you can get them back in without wasting any time.

hrm.   You don't want to buy them because you lose them so you'd rather rent them?  :blink:    You do know that if you lose the rented ones that you pay for them.  Often people want their rented things back ... at least that's Enterprises' policy.
