Paintball Jug Redesign
By Bill Mills - Sept 2005

Many will remember The Paintball Jug, developed and Marketed by Ron Saenz of Southern California.  Recognizing that a lot of paintball players out there are the type who will not burn through a half of case of paint in one game, Saenz put together The Paintball Jug as a way to protect paint from humidity and weather, and also make it easy to pour into a hopper or pod.

The original Paintball Jug consisted of a large plastic jug, with a wide-mouth screw top, and a pouring spout with flip top lid hot melt glued into the side.  While simple in construction, the price tag was also less than other pod filling products, and The Paintball Jug proved successful enough for Saenz to invest in a second-generation model.

The new Paintball Jug is made from a custom designed blow mold.  Saenz’ URL, is even molded in raised letters on the bottom of the jug.  The new model is slightly larger than the original, holding a whole 1,000 paintballs, and the pouring spout is now molded into the body of the jug for drastically improved durability.  The top is still wide enough to easily empty a bag of paintballs into the jug without spilling, or to empty a hopper from its top.

Both the top, and the pour spout are sealed with screw-on lids, and like the original, the new Paintball Jug is emblazoned with a skill sticker with the dire admonition, “WARNING: This Paintball Jug Holds The Paint That Will Destroy ALL!”

For the player who will go out, play a game or two, and save the paint out of their hopper, along with the rest of the bag for tomorrow or next weekend, The Paintball Jug offers an effective way to store, protect and pour paint.
