What is a 10 rd tube anyway?

I wonder what we call "a 10 rd tube" really is?

It seems weird that someone would set up a machine to mass produce plastic tubes at a quarter or so a pop just for the SC paintball niche. Knowing the homemade factor in the original paintballers setup, I'm guessing that they are simply pilfered from some other function

Are they cigar tubes, emergency fishing kits or what?? (I can think of several rather risqué options... but I'm actually looking to source some out here by tracing the industry/real life role....)
Cheers,
PDJ

Don't you think they are a little small for that?

It's a big secret. If we figure it out, companies can't charge us 25 cents a pop anymore

Its a cigar tube. Manuf. by Serafina in North Caroina. And they are not 25 cent a piece

I sell them for 15 cent with a cap.

And a speedcap is a thread saver for threaded fittings.

Both used by the PB industry.

LOL

I can tell you exactly where and how to get them, but minimum order is 16,000 tubes (16 cases) plus shipping by freight.

From what I gathered talking to the lady at Serafina, they make the ones we know as 10 rd tubes specifically for the PB industry. But Serafina makes nothing but colored cigar tubes and puts the company label on them.

So I can carry.... let me see... 160,000 paintballs hmmm around 80 cases....

Do you have a harness to hold 'em ? And I'll be needing a second one for the 6500 12ies, (How many extras would you carry?)

On a - slightly - more serious note, again what are they? (if it's not indiscreet, or even if it is )

Cheers,
PDJ

EDIT : Sorry missed the Serafina Cigar tube post :roll eyes:
