I saw these grenades in the BT tent at DDay and thought they looked pretty cool. So I got two and decided I would use them in the main scenario the next day. The first thing I noticed and loved about the grenade is that it uses a pull pin trigger system. This means no more taking off plastic wrap in the middle of a game like with the F-Bomb. The grenade is about the same size as an F-Bomb also so you're still getting alot of paint out of one grenade. When I decided to use them in the scenario I was relieved to not have to take off plastic wrap to use my grenade for once. Also both grenades went off perfectly. These grenades use the most effective trigger system I have seen. The tube is just folded over with a plastic cap over the end and a cotter pin put through it. This means it goes off every time no matter what. I give this grenade a 10/10.

I agree. I also bought some at D-Day with the same great results. One of my friends at D-Day unwrapped his Tippmann Big Boy grenade then realized his target had moved. So there he was, holding the grenade, wondering what to do with it. He couldn't put the shrink wrap back on so he gently put it back in his grenade pouch hoping it wouldn't detonate until he had another chance to use it. No luck, a few minutes later he opened the pouch to retrieve the grenade and it popped open and sprayed paint everywhere. Man, he was ticked. I still prefer my grenades. If Tippmann could come up with a replaceable pull-pin for their Big Boy grenades instead of that crappy shrink wrap they would have a great product. So basically all the paint grenades that use the old "ball stuck in the hose" trigger design suck and everybody knows it. So now the only commercial grenades worth buying are Tippmann Big Boys and the BT grenades. The BTs have a replaceable pull-pin but the Tippmann Big Boys have that nice spin so I guess it's a tie. lol.

Tippmann could probably put some thought into it and come up with a safety mechanism. Actually, it was already done a long time ago. Prior to Tippmann, prior to Atomic Ordnance (who Tippmann bought) there were the Meteor shower grenades. I don't know the whole story or if whoever made them became atomic ordnance...but the design is the same with one exception. Instead of wrapping the grenades in crinkly annoying plastic, they used another rubber band over the whole thing to hold the trigger in place. Warpig still has some good pics.

There was an obvious downfall to the design. If that band came off you have a potential mess on your hands like an unwrapped big boy. An idea would be to just carry a couple extra thick rubber bands in your pocket so in the event that you have an unwrapped big boy, you could put them over it like on the Meteor shower grenades and have a little bit of additional safety. Maybe use 2 like in an X pattern.

I have yet to try these grenades out. I am planning on getting some for a scenario game this weekend. I did see a demo of one online at my local store and it looks more promising the the Big Boys.....

Just how do you do that? There isn't really a way. And these are the same price. It's easier to buy a grenade that already has a pull pin.

The BT M-12 grenades blows the Big Boy/F-Bomb away. When this thing hits the ground, it bounces and it bounces big, depending on the throw, I'd say 10 feet into the air. Paint sprays in all directions, approxiamtely a 20 foot kill radius. They are extremely devastating in CQB, when thrown into rooms.

We did a side by side comparison of the F-bomb and the BT M-12. The BT M-12 won hands down. The bounce when hitting the ground was much higher with the M-12. While the F-bomb is still a decent grenade the M-12 jetted paint out much faster, giving it more rotation in the air than the F-bomb.
