    Pods:
    Dye Lock Lid Pods: 152
    Standard '140' Pod: 132
    Fatboy pods - ~140 Balls
    Evil 140 pods - 142 (checked)

    Hoppers:
    Tippmann 98:

    Post up your loader, pods if they are not here and you are really board ;)

    LOADER:
    Halo B with Virtue Crown and extension collar. About 200-220 if you shove in some extra pballs.



    That Magna, you have to tilt it back to actually get to the extra-capacity bit, dontcha?

    If you put that much paint in a Halo (even with an extender collar) it won't feed properly off the break. Better to leave some space to allow the paint to cycle as you shoot.

    Only tried it at home and it feeds great on a drop test, but you raise a good point, may be different on a marker, I'll try it sometime at an SOD to see if it works alright. i didn't actually shove it in, but it may be a little too tight..

    It won't cause massive poblems, it just increases the chances of a jam or a paintball breaking in the hopper. Better to leave a bit of space and just reload a bit earlier.

    i noticed that happened with my velo junior at the 101 because i was making sure to put plenty of paint in my loader (but it only took 4 balls to beat spaz :wink: ).

    yeah thats right i beat all you suckers with at least 20 balls less :lol:

    you may have beaten me with only four balls, but that was four more balls than i shot cause of the loader, coincidently, i got off another karny!!
