Okay I got a few F-Bombs off of Spec-Ops.com today and let me say I was quite impressed. Alhtough I experienced trouble at first with the Little Betty I eventually got around it and took some serious testing.

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.

i keep squadbusters around in good supply, its a good grenade as long as you shake it up well, then throw it with a good arch, so that it hits with some good force. good blast radius, visible paint, and small enough to carry a couple on you without gettin weighed down, my next specops order, im ganna try some F-bombs out.

The Big Boys and Little Betty's are both Classified as F-Bombs, but the TRUE F-Bomb is the Big Boy, and these things are SWEET!

I was real excited to try out the Big Boy … Was being the key word. We wanted to see how large the “blast radius” was so we had a group of 6 guys (all with protection) that wanted to get “hit” by a grenade placed at 5 to 10 foot increments. I unwrapped the grenade … gave it a good toss and pow … Nothing. It popped like a water balloon sending paint a whole 1.5 to two feet! I think after we stood there for a couple of minutes someone commented “wow, that sucked!” I agree. I’m glad it was a Brigade Freebie … can’t say whether or not I will buy some in the future.

On Saturday, I tried 2 pod rockets. They both exploded on me the second I pulled the pin. They don't work for me. I heard you can get a refund or a new 'nade if they don't work. Is that true?\

I haven't used pod rockets but if they work like the Big boys (or F-Bombs) Then you aren't supposed to pull the pin, lol. You're just supposed to chuck it :laugh:

F-bombs are "ATOMIC ORDNANCE" Bigboys
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

refilling them would not be the way to go. 1st u'd have to buy liquid paint, and a kit to refill them... and after u've gone through, refinding ur nade tube and all that, u still have no way to rewrap it, so it doesnt seem effective.
They are on Ebay cheap, and i have not seen them cheaper then UGP where they are 5.20 a piece.

Man that stunk. I unwraped mine and threw it. All it did was send a few drops out....then the rest slowly came out of the tube like it was stale. Squadbusters worked better for me than this. Any ideas why it stunk?

By far big boys are the best out of the 3 I've thrown 2 went of and I got a person with each. The other one I just tossed it into a pile of leaves and it didn't go off but I'ld say they are still they best. If you go to www.fatboypaintball.com you can get 20 for a total of $90 and that includes shipping! That's only $4.50 ea!
