The Big Boy. The Big BOy, is a huge grenade, 10oz. of paint in one single grenade. It's rather heavy, and will not fit into a pod (if you want to carry one there?) But has the regular loop for attachmetns to a vest or belt, whatever. Although I recomend tying them down a bit, as once the plastic comes iff, some unessacary shking can lead to the fly off of the Rubber band holding it in. When you have your traget lined up simply grab the grenade and prepare to throw. Pop up and toss then get down right away. Wait for the shouts of 'OUT' or unitl you see the enemy walking away, until then only take quick peeks. Once tossed the Big Boy has a remarkable blast radius. Although like ohter paintball grenades shoots a ton to one side and not so much to the other. The farthest splat of paint I recored was some 12 feet. That particular grenade had 3 feet burst on the opposite side as well though. I recommedn some good training before tossing one.
The Little Bettyy's are lighter and more portable, and can fit into a pod (?) But they don't have as much firepower as a Big Boy. first make sure that the BB is in place behind the White End Cap, and THEN take out the white end cap and toss her. I recorded about 7-10 feet on different sides. Still an excellent grenade.
On a Side Note, contrary to many things people are saying my friend also brought over his one year old Squadbuster for us to mess around with as well. We simply shook it for a second or two. Took out the pin and tossed it. We even tossed it UNDERHAND. It landed in a puddle of mud and exploded on impact. Honestly I thought we'd get to chuck it at stuff but it went on the first throw! Amazing for Squadbusters!
But back to the F-Bombs. I give the Big Boy a 10/10 and the little Betty 9/10. I'm an American and therefore LOVE having heavy firepower. The Big Boy gives me that extra punch and the wieght isn't that bad, as well as storing them. But some people may not like them.... As well as the Little Betty's

Hmmm... I'll try that next time. Last one I had, I threw at a tree, and it still didn't go off. Hard, even.

They are by far the BEST paintball grenades anywhere
They are available on alot of sites but BEWARE of fakes ie; DEATH BLOSSOM these are NOT the same as Bigboys or fbombs insist on ATOMIC ORDNANCE Big boys or F-Bombs
