Ive never felt the need to own one but thats just me


Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

Yes they are worth.  You'll never know how you got along without it.  

 

Normally bring 4 pods plus one spare incase I roll and crack one.

I will answer this question with a firm HELL YEAH! SO useful for storing and loading your paint. Oh yeah, I have layers and layers of stickers on my caddie... not recommended, but I often get a few looks like 'WELL then!' I bring however many pods I feel will accommodate my paint purchases. Usually I only buy a bag of paint so I do some math and figure out how many pods I need to leave no paint on the table. But that's just me.

It's been one of the best purchases I've made.  Particularly I like that the spout is sized to match my pod necks so that there's very little chance of spilling when you fill up your pods.

 

Two of my friends use plastic cereal storage containers instead, but they are more likely to dump paintballs on the ground when filling up.

Best 20$ I've ever spent! Makes loading pods at tournamnets super fast! And I bring 8 pods to the field, six for my pack and two spares.

Caddies are awesome.
I bring like 10ish white pods to the field just so I have always filled pods for the most part, but realisticlaly I'd need like 5.

Great investments! As for the pods, I bring 4 140rd pods and 20 10rd tubes/pods..


Did you ever notice how Valken Graffiti smells like chocolate? Then, when you leave some in a pod on a hot day, they smell like melted chocolate!

Well if you all like caddies then I hate them... :P

 

Jk, I love mine and I agree, it's one of the best things I've spent money on in paintball. I have a GXG one that I got on sale for like $8 or something and it works great. It's 10x easier than trying to fill pods straight from the bags of paint.

If your paint comes in open bags with a twist tie, then I'd recommend getting one. If it comes in sealed bags, you can do without one and simply cut off the corner of the bags and pour paint into your pods.

We use to use the big laundry detergent jugs, just have to make sure they have the wide mouth. Just pop out the pour spout and you have the "poor mans paintball caddy". I still have a few around even though I have a PB caddy now( picked it up in a gear bag sale).

The paintball caddy is the best 20 bucks you will ever spend on paintball equipment. You won't regret it.

You could make one yourself if you're cheap. An old laundry detergent bottle works well.

I thought for along time it was a waste of 20 bucks. then bought one from a tech at my local field to show him support especially since he fixed the air leak in my axe for free. and i gotta tell you one of the best 20 buck spent in paintball. you dont realize how useful it is not just storing but when the next game is about to start and you got pods to fill  lol. you can make them or buy a plastic cereal container but i say if you can afford it support you local shop or local ballers selling them
