Is any one brand of caddy used more than another brand of caddy? Plastic or metal? Which is best?

at a club level, you see a lot of plastic Choate style trays, usually California Competiton Works that clip on...like most anything, there is always a newer, slicker gadget on the market...if you can learn to load weak handed, the 4 round trays are pretty standard around here with the young guys... 6 rounders for the old guys like me that have had their equipment for 15 or so years....

I really like my AP Custom 4x4, helps leave a little more real estate on the belt too

I'm looking for some caddys as well. I'm in the process of building my ELS belt up and just have to decide on which caddys now. The Carbon Arm caddy seems like a good option.

For weak hand loading I think the Otto ones are best. They're metal and come with tek-lok attachments. Also already drilled to fit ELS clips.

I ended up ordering AP customs 4x4 from Midway. We'll see how these work out.

Otto caddies and various load-two systems...

The ones I made out of kydex ( 6 cost $62 including the price of the heat gun).

I now have 5 of them and they seem to work fine for me....with the exception of going prone, and it isnt that bad.

I have Mark Otto caddies but have recently changed to "dropping dueces" with the Carbon Arms pinwheels. The load 2 system seems to be a bit smoother for me.

After trying several different makers I went with the Man Mountain caddies. Only thing is I had to contact Rob at MME to swap the belt loops for 1.5" belt loops to fit my CR Speed belt better.

I just picked up a Taccon 6 up with teklok and I'm waiting for a Chameleon load 2 belt also.

The carbon arms stuff is so ridiculously priced I won't even try them even with the 30% off coupon I won at a match.

The Make Ready Pro Shop has the best prices on them too.

For big shotgun stages I always run an AP Customs 4X4 Caddy as well. Make Ready Pro Shop arries those too.


Off topic, but the Make ready pro shop is awesome. I ordered monday, and my stuff is shipping out tomorrow, got my tracking info from them today, on new years day.

The Carbon Arms stuff is worth the cost IMO... to fabricate the FSL8 or 12 takes quite a bit of machining. I really like the versatility of them, weak or strong hand, deuces both ways as well.

If you don't want that coupon.... feel free to pas it forward

Does anyone know if Mark Otto's come predrilled and tapped for the ELS system? Is the retention system work well enough compare to mountain man eng.? I like that the mountain man eng. is made from one piece of metal but dont like that I will have to buy $7 pieces to convert it to ELS.

The Otto shell carriers have 9 mounting holes in the back all tapped. Two of them line up perfectly for the ELS holes. Retention is great on the Otto carriers, I've never had a shell come out when I didn't want it to.

One benefit to the Otto shell carriers being made of 3 pieces is that you can adjust them for shell lenght.

I really like MME caddies. I drilled and tapped them and installed tek loks so they can easily be removed from the belt.

If you're going to weakhand load, the TACCOM Quick Caddy is pretty good for a decent price. They are also tek-lok ready.

It was your post on boomershooter that finally got me to choose these instead of the pricier MME. It was nice to save money and end up with something I really like so far.
