This compact, reusable mine is powered by a standard 12 gram CO2 cartridge and sprays 6 ounces of liquid paint, covering an area up to 600 square feet!
The MASTER MINE is an "on-surface" design, meaning you don't need to carry a shovel to the field. It can be set up in less than a minute and has an ultra sensitive trigger mechanism, allowing the use of a light trip cord that can be activated up to 25 feet from the mine or remotely detonated by the user.
The MASTER MINE uses dual, adjustable muzzles for creating different spray patterns. Turn them out to cover a wide area, or point them straight for a concentrated "dude drenching" blast.
Combine these features with its impressive sound blast and the mine can also double as a superb perimeter warning device. Whatever your strategy the MASTER MINE will certainly give your opponents something else to think about before moving on that trail or making that next bunker move.
The Major Paintball Master Mine is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
No other mines
The Tippmann Squadbuster is effective at ambushes like the master mine except you have to be there to throw it.
Spyder Flash with 16 inch barrel, gas-thru adjustable stock, coiled remote line, and Ricochet AK loader
Pivoting heads allow more range of fire. Compact. Large spray area.
Trip wire is a bit odd.
The remote detonator isperfect for ambushing paths and other areas. It also allows you to be out of the way. The best situation is to make sure no one except your team knows you have it so you will have the element of surprise.
The best way to use the mine is to detonate it and then open fire on the stunned enemy. It is perfect for recreational and scenario games.
It runs on 12 gram co2's and the powder mix makes a lot of pain. IT is also perfect for intimidating the other team and they will be looking for trip wires everywhere they go.
This project is perfec tfor the paintballer who likes scenario combat games. The price is $40 to $50, but you can get 8 to 10 squad busters for that price.
It is reusable unlike most paint grenades though.
It accuratly sprays paint over a good area with an adjustable pattern.
The trip wire is a little weird
This product surprised me, I didn't expect the proformance that it gave. I replaced the tripwire with some spider wire, and it was harder to see.
-It makes a good sound
-It has a good mark pattern which is also adjustable
-It is easy to use, clean and reload
-It runs off of 12 gram co2 cartridges so its compact,
It has an amazing marking ability, I set it up on the dam at the lake, and when another player tripped it he was instantly yellow from head to toe.
lets see you wipe that off....
This is the best mine that I've tried......Now all we need is a co2 powered grenade.
----The downfall is its tripwire, however it still bags a big 10 since its simple to replace
(make sure you take both safteys off before you leave it in the field)
Tis mine is extremely good at spraying the paint and even making noise. During a dry run when I first got it, the blast was enough to throw the CO2 about fifty to sixty feet, and of course gas will not travel as well as paint. It is simplistic to use and disassemble and outside of a brief moment of idiocy, I discovered that it was well documented in the proper maintenance, not to mention it has a way to order replacement parts which could come in handy (hopefully not but you never know).
The tripwire mechanism is about the only thing I was not pleased with and this is mainly the supplied tripwire. I am going to try out a few things though to see if they work any better but outside of that, not much bad.
This is a great perimeter defense tool or even a nice noisemaker. The blast alone can pretty much be heard for a good distance and load her up with paint and poof, your enemy is going anywhere. I will admit I think that a monofilament 8 pound test fishing line would make for a better tripwire than the DMC crossstich floss that it seems to come with (don't ask how I know that) because it would be immediately visible (the floss stuff I mean) whereas fishing line is pretty thin and cna be ultrasensitive, and I do intend on testing this theory out. One other possibility is the idea of daisy chaining them which would be relatively easy to do, something I have not seen on other mines on the market.
