Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
Tippmann Squadbusters, better than these, and Atomic Ordnance Big Boys, better than these.
Marker Setup: '95 Automag, bone stock, '03 Autococker, bone stock
Strengths: Small to fit three in a 140 round pod.
Weaknesses: 50-75% pre-mature failure rate. Fill is not thick.
Review: These are a good idea for someone wanting an occasional grenade in a convenient storage place. These babys fit 3 in a 140rd pod perfectly. However, in my opinion, that is where their convenience ends.

These are a black rubber tube with one end glued shut. The other end has a BB, much like the Tippmanns, and also a strong white plastic clip that pinches the tube and the BB.

EDIT START EDIT 8-23-06 My team and I ordered the scenario pack from Atomic Ordnance. We were pleased with all products except for these pod rockets. We had 5 packs of these rockets, 3 to each pack. I'd say most of my team had a 50-75% failure rate with the rockets. They simply went off in our hands before we could throw them right after pulling the white tab. A few times we took out other teammates as well near us in addition to ourselves. I was quite annoying and embarrassing. We will never order the pod rockets again!

That being said, the owner of Atomic Ordnance did replace all my grenades when I called him. He also said they were re-working the pod rocket, which means they are concerened about the performance of their products and improving them. GREAT guy and company.)EDIT END EDIT


Personally I feel these grenades have too much pressure behind them that they will go off before they are thrown. The fill is thinner too, I much prefer the Tippmann fill. (see my Big Boy grenade review for more on this)

I would rather have one Tippmann Squadbuster or an Atomic Big Boy than three of these pod rockets.
Conclusion: The Pod Rockets ARE NOT worth your money.

You do realize that like all grenades you are supposed to shake them up first? This allows the pigment to re-mix with the water, if you dont that thin fill will result.

Yeah I do shake them. The thing is the fill in Atomic ordnance grenades has a food grade anti-separation/coagulation mixed in with it. Makes the fill thinner.
