Tippmann Squadbusters, better than these, and Atomic Ordnance Big Boys, better than these.
'95 Automag, bone stock, '03 Autococker, bone stock
Small to fit three in a 140 round pod.
50-75% pre-mature failure rate. Fill is not thick.
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.
The Pod Rockets ARE NOT worth your money.

Tippmann Squadbuster(Not as good)
Little Bettys(Much Better)
Tippmann 98 Custom
Adco Hot Shot
Custom Paint job
Pure energy coiled remote
-Easy to carry
-Spray tons of paint
-Very short range
-Very light weight
These arent bad grenades as the work all the time, but they are too light weight. The first time I went to throw one it got blown away in a gust of wind. The second attempt worked fine at a very close range to another bunker. You can fit 3 in a 140 round pod easily. Also now the grenades are coming without pins but a blue plastic saftey clip instead. With this new addtion you must pinch the neck before removing the clip.
All-in-all these are good grenades,just not for long distance throws.

The Atomic ordnance Pod rockets are awesome. They have a huge marking radius, U can fit 3 in a 140 pod, very bright paint . When i was at my friends house, i threw one of these, and there was snow on the ground and it was like 20* outside, threw it, BAM it went off, there was green paint everywhere. Man these things are insanely awesome i can't get over how well the worked. This has a better marking radius than the squad buster and is a lot cooler. I'm going to buy these for now on, they totaly kill the squad buster in every way.
BUY BUY BUY BUY these gernades are awesome!

These grenades, for their size, rock! Not only do they spray paint really far every time, but you can stick 3 of them in one of your 140 round pods. They are relatively cheap, considering you buy them in packs of three.
I went out to play some woodsball with my friends, and 2 of them were behind a huge tree, so I took one out to get ready to throw it, and kept it in my left hand in between the grip on my Tippmann. Just as I was about to throw it, they peeked out from behind the tree and we went back and forth for about 3 minutes before I decided that enough is enough. So, I looked down at my hand, and to my surprise, I saw that I was apparently squeezing it to hard, so some of the paint was leeking out. So I just went and threw it. Even with a lot of the paint leaking out in my hand, it still spun really well, and chucked a ton of paint. Even though they are smaller and less expensive than the Squad Busters, they are WAY better.
BUY!!! If you woodsball, these are something that must be a part of your arsenal.
