I would take them with you just for assurance. If its a real blowout and you're done in 10 seconds, then you wont need them but at the same time it would really suck to go without them and be stuck in a bunker against 3 other guys... its just to be sure, and they really aren't a big hassle to take with you so yeah I would

huckduck you're telling me you go through a 14 minute game by using one hopper of paint ~200 balls? Are you using a pump?

Im not saying that just because you have pods means you have to spray and just shoot randomly at anything that moves, I just mean to have it there just in case you need it it would suck to run out in a game haha

There is that aspect to it but if you're playing speedball using paint is a big part of training too. Yeah being accurate and making your shots account is VERY important but it's also important to keep the other person in his bunker so he can't shoot out one of your teammates or even you. So if you're not shooting a lot of paint and he is that gives him plenty opportunity to just snap out fire 4-5 balls get you in your bunker and then post up and shoot ropes keeping you in.

Oh and huckduck I thouhght you guys were playing speedball indoors not scenario my bad

before sinking money into a pack and pods id say go play, if you run out of paint at any point during the day you know you could put one to use
