Alright so I bought some pod rockets but they didn't come with a pull pin like it shows in the picture in the store but a white plastic clamp so now I have no idea how to use them and if anyone could give me directions that would be great. It's probibly very simple but the last thing i need is to pull on somthing i'm not supposed to and end up knocking out my whole fire team.

You pull the white clamp off...and you toss it... You should try one out. It's the same principle as the pull-pin grenades, except its a tad different...

Tell me how effective they are once you use em. I want to know how big the blast radius is and see if they're just as effective as the ones I make

did I die for a second there?...

I bought a few of these and we've had mixed results. One of my guys snuck into the opfors base and could not get it to go off, in the end he had to beat it against a bunker to get it to blow. I tosses one into the street the other day, and it went off beautifully! The radius leave something to be desired, it relased in a ~280 degree arc. I like the big boys much better, watching one of those paint your foe is SWEET!

I loved my pod rockets. They worked amazingly. Also, you may want to shake them up if the paint seems to have settled.

My Pod Rockets worked really well except they don't have a large radious so they are a great distraction if you need to get away.

No offense but your an idiot. The ring that is shown in the thing in the store is just used to camp it to your vest.

These grenades use the old "ball stuck in the hose" trigger system which sucks. To help them "detonate" take the clamp off then pinch the hose right there where the ball is so that a little paint squirts out. This will lube the hose a little making it a little easier for the ball to pop out. Make sure you throw it so that it lands pretty hard and it should work. What's funny is, the best trigger system I've ever seen is the one most of us use to make home made grenades. You just bend the hose over and put a ring off PVC or a washer over it and install a pull-pin to keep it on until you're ready to use it. Works perfectly every time but non of the commercial grenade companies have figured it out yet.

Here's the one I made. Look around,everything is sold open market. I found that the closer the ball to the end, the better they go off.
Later,
