Products Used:
Tippmann Squadbouncers, I mean "Busters" Not as consistent as the Atomic Ordnance grenades but I do like the thicker fill.
Marker Setup: '95 Automag, bone stock, '03 Autococker, bone stock
Strengths: Excellent coverage spray, large, consistent, minty fresh bright fill.
Weaknesses: Fill is not thick.
Review: I've thrown 7 of these so far since i ordered them about a month ago, and had about as many thrown at me. I have a case of them on order for the West Point Scenario!!

I love these grenades. They are large with a good amount of paint in them.

These are consistent, I have yet to have one not break when thrown. They bounce a good 4-5 foot high too when going off and have a good spiral spin to them to give a large coverage area. Go to warpig.com and see their review, the pics you see of them going off are what you get.

These are easy to use, just pull off the plastic they are wrapped in and throw, do NOT remove the rubber band.

The rubber band holds the rubber tube closed, unlike the Tippmanns which use a BBs lodged in the tubes. The BBs and paint combo in the Tippmanns can get clogged when they sit and settle. The Atomic Ordnance grenades don't use BBs, and also the paint mix has a food grade anti seperation ingredient in it to keep the paint from settling.

I actually like the paint in the Tippmann grenades much better. It is much thicker and harder to wipe and leaves a nice blue mark on the opponent. The paint in the Atomic Ordnance grenades is thinner, more watery, and almost evaporates leaving only a wet mark on an opponent. Good colors though, and easy to see on an opponent, but I feel not as long as lasting as the Tippmann paint.

In my opinion though, a more reliable grenade outweighs the sacrifice of a thinner fill.

I've carried these in my Tac Vest pockets with no problems, and also hung them off the included beaner from the nifty rubber ring.

(EDIT...EDIT...4/9/06... I used a ton of these at the West Point game a few weeks ago. Like I said above, I had them in my vest pockets and hanging from the beaner. I even had a few of the little betty kinds in my jeans pocket. I belly crawled, slid down hills, ran full speed, basically played my hardest game to date using these grenades. They all remained intact till I decided to use them.
By the way, they make GREAT tank killers!! ...end of EDIT...end of EDIT)
Conclusion: I will be using these from now on, despite the thinner fill. I like the detonation on these much better than the Tippmanns. Worth making the switch.
