Period of
Product Use:
3 years10 of 10 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Products Used:
Tippmann Big Boys- THE premier grenade, consistent reliability and performance
Tippmann Squadbuster- not as good as the Big Boy, but still better than these pod rockets.
P&D- decent grenades, but a step below the Tippmanns.
Marker Setup: '95 Automag with X-Valve & Level 10
pump kit Automag
Tippmann Custom '98
Strengths: Small, able to fit 3 into a pod
Weaknesses: Goes off when removing the plastic clip in your hand
Review: I have used many of these as I was once sponsored when these were made by Atomic Ordnance, before Tippmann bought them out. My teamates and I stopped buying them and went exclusively with the Big Boys.

The pod rockets are under such pressure that they go off in your hand when you remove the white plastic retaining clip. We even tried to hold the end of the tubing and the BB in place, but to no avail. I have found these to have a 50 to 60 percent pre-mature failure rate.

My boss at the field I work at recently bought a large supply of them from Tippmann. He usually buys the Squadbusters but they were not available at the time. It is embarrassing to sell these to the customers at the field. As a ref I see this same problem occuring with the players that I had when I used them. 50 to 60 % pre-mature failure rate. Needless to say we get a lot of customers demanding their money back. My field owner won't stock these anymore.
Conclusion: DON'T BUY THESE. They are not designed well. Go with the Big Boy or the Squadbuster.

These are literally the worst grenades I have ever used
