Technique to Pod Loading 50rd APP Hopper

Is there some sort of special technique to load the 50 rd APP hopper? The mouth of the hopper is so small compared to the pod, and I lose like half of my paint when I'm reloading the hopper.

Modified speed feed? Anything? Am I just bad at reloading?

Blargh. I have a 50 rd pod... Don't really wanna go buy more pods lol.

Maybe I'll just go with the 150 rd hopper...

I have a pod lid taped on the end of mine, makes it a little bigger of an opening and it lets it hold a little more paint

The 30 round pods really are a nice fit with the 50 round loader. Especially with a 12g marker that gets about 30 shots per 12g.

Man that's gotta be a bitch. I was considering it, but I figured I'd be spending so much time reloading on the field and too vulnerable to getting bunker'd. Kinda wish I still had my joyride harness still.

I load the hopper with 40/45 balls... then if need to fill during a game. I toss in only 20/30. So 3 10 red tubes. Usually its in between games. So no worries.
