Thanks for the ideas guys, keep'em coming. I know I could just cut tubes but I hate carrying many tubes for a full day of play.

For the moment, what seems to be working for me is 3 mags and 1 old army pouch that can carry 3 mini hoppers. With a bit of practice I'm finding that using a hopper is more practical than having to "load out" a bunch of tubes.

I use these to refill mags. Each holds 24 rounds. Made from PVC tube. Light/tough and compact, a poor mans pursuit pod.

Man, the NSA probably has someone going through our forums now thinking, "these PB players are making IEDs."

So how do the reload work?

i can see about 8 rounds per tube, 3 tubes. Looks think the elastic draw interconnects the rear and a pull string for the larger front diameter.

thanks Weasel.

The reload is pretty easy with practice. I have the mag in my left hand, follower pulled down and feed gate rod moved over. With the pod in my right hand I use my index finger to move the bottlecap then put two fingers over two of the tubes allowing me to pour with the third tube.
The down side to these compared to 8 round tubes is if you have used one twice you waste a little time searching for the filled tube. I try to fill my three mags in one go so I put an empty pod back, but it doesn't always work out like that!
The size is good too, not too large, small enough to fit five or six pods in a thigh dump pouch. Gives me a total carry of 144 with 24 spare to chuck at a team mate.
As for them looking like explosives , yeah I get that comment a lot when I play LOL. I've even been asked if they are smoke grenades.

I wonder if this works...

Oh well, i tried to load a link to a vid. I need to round out the inside lip of fill it since the balls tend to "circle the drain", so to speak.

The longer lip sits on the "magazine bar"and you just push it down and tilt. the balls roll right in.

i just need to figure out how to "block" the balls from coming out if I'm crawling or....doing flips, or running with matrix moves.

Second idea is to do what Butch did and run a clear tube that fits into the magazine mouth and helps depress the bar.

third idea is to make a mold of the top part of the magazine and integrate a set screw that can depress the switch on the back end of the magazine just enough to move the bar, but not enough to release the follower. I really like this idea, but MOLDS....uggggggg....so messy. Someone buy me a 3-D printer LOL

Nice WASH. Thanks for video. It helped me understand how the end was used. Genius. I might have to hit up the Hardware store again for a new PVC piece.
