10 round tube 5 pack holder pod thingy?

So I like playing with my stock class fed phantom, but I don't like dump pouches. So I made this crude taped up 5 tube deal, so I can hold them in a pod pack and slide them back in after use.

Had to space the tubes a little in order for there to be room when cramping into the pheed.

Works well but probably won't last long. I'm just wondering if any of y'all have tried a 3d print like this?
I've seen similar things used as rotating hoppers but not as a pod you can reload phantom one piece pheeds.

Not that this is in relation to the point of this thread, but what SC rig have you been using, and are you running capless or capped? Most of the people when I played would reinsert the tube back into the slot after reloading.

not sure if Pursuit pods are still available for purchase but I agree someone designed that rotating hopper so why doesn't someone design clip that holds 5-6 tubes with a rotating cap for selecting a tube to dump. maybe a version with a little lip around the opening to push the gates open on a phantom feed. I can easily see a little market for them here on MCB.

I bring 30 tubes with me. No way of shoving that many back and holding them in a convenient way.

Yeah that would be perfect really. But I bet one of these mad scientists here can make something.

Basically I still want to keep my one peice on pheeds, (pheonix phantom) not change to one of those.

I looked at your picture, then, 2hrs later, I stopped looking at imgur. That site just consumes you.

Just get som PB Tailor Gauntlets slide the empties back in as you use em. That’s what I do. No belt or dump needed. I use an elastic shotgun shell holder for gun stock to hold 12g on my inner forearm I like it better then keeping them on the knuckles of the gauntlet.
