Review: THE GOOD
The tight, compact frame of the splatmaster is very comfortable and capable.

It is easy to load and reload this gun with both ammo and CO2 charges. While not
designed with quick re-arming in mind, with practice it is possible.

It is VERY effective at close range (20 to 40 feet).

THE BAD
The leaky CO2 assembly is the main problem with this gun ( or marker, whatever your choice ).

While impossible to eliminatethis problem, the occational cleaning is a good start.

Be sure to screw the butt-cap in to the proper depth. You pretty much have one chance at this so make it count. If you screw your CO2 cartridge in too far, it leaks. If you screw it in too little, it leaks. However, if you've made each of the above mistakes, your problems are almost over!
Examine the ends of the two, failed, CO2 cartridges. One should have a big hole and the other a small one. Remember how deep you drove them and aim for the middle. Once you get the hang of this, until you have a different CO2 reciver, you'll get it perfect almost everytime.

When your Splatmaster breaks, go buy a new one if it is fiscally sound nowadays. I would do this and play-on for only 25$ when I used these things. When the replacement broke, I would combine the parts and make a single working splatmaster, with parts to spare. Repeat the above as neccessary to continue play!

MANEUVERS
When you're trying to eliminate your opponents, be stealthy and fast. Otherwise, with a Splatmaster, you don't stand much of a chance.

Final tip, if you run out of CO2 while playing and a ball just trickles out, pick it up and throw it at your intended target HARD. He'll have heard your Splatmaster's last gasp and be willing to take a chance looking around the bend.

Good luck!

Conclusion: The only good reason to buy this product now is to tag someone with a round and then rub it in their face as to how they were eliminated by a relic!

Save a Splatmaster, for history

Rated 7/10, because it served me so well for so long.
