OK so I saw a few mods showing how to make your pocket hopper have a flip top lid. I wanted one so I made one.

I took an old pod I had that had the rubber top pod lid. I put the top of the pod in boiling water for about 30 seconds to loosen the glue. I took it out and peeled off the top. I took the top and slid it over the opening of the pocket hopper to test for fit and it was perfect. I mixed up a little epoxy and glued it in place. Works great.

Next up are some 50 round pods. Using the same method as above I took off the tops of the pods. I put 50 paintballs in the pod and marked the level with a permanent marker. I cut the pod at the mark and cleaned up the edge with a razor and some sand paper. I put the top of the pod back in the hot water for a few seconds and pushed the pod lids back on. Also came out great.

Ive seen 50 round pounds before..Kickass.

Do 50 round pounds actually exist in stores or is it straight up custom work?
