I just wanted to add that in the last 18 months or so, my 4 grenades in storage have dehydrated quite a bit and the tubing is stretched so bad, it's pretty much unusable. Since the fill of any home brew is so cheap, don't store them for more than a month. Set them off. It's like trying to save a 12g CO2....just let it go.

I also use the zip ties instead of washers and found them useful to adjust the tension. If I intend to chuck them a bit further, I can tighten it up ever so slightly to make the distance.
I also make a variation much like the F-Bomb. I make the tubes a bit longer and them wrap the excess around the top fold, and then put a rubber band around the roll. I use a cotter pin to keep it from unravelling.

anybody know where one could find the FBomb rubber bands? or the dimensions of them? it's probably in this thread somewhere, but i scanned through it all and didn't see it anywhere.

I would imagine they are some kind of standard size (if there is such a thing in the rubber band industry) - Something you could get in bulk easily. Sorry I don't know the actual dimensions - I've been out of the game too long!

The closest I could find to the F-Bomb tubing was here

http://www.4fishin.c...ical_tubing.htm

I use ST - 12 - 10 for my grenades and it works quite well.

As for the triggering band similar to the F-Bomb try lobster bands, personally I just cut a small piece of the same tubing I use for the body and it works too.

You might want to look at your local pet store or feed and seed store for the syringe. If they don't carry them, you can always google them. Be careful though because some places require a script for them. They are considered prescriptions in some states. I use a 100cc (3.38oz) syringe for making my grenades.

Man! I love these things! I made my own, but used zip-ties instead of washers. For my first test I filled it with 6oz of water and through it on my driveway and the splatter sprat zone was 7ft x 7ft. :laugh:
I tried filling a bigger one with 24oz but I didn't spread it out enough in the tubing so it broke when I threw it. That thing looked like a banana when it was full! :facepalm:
I used a meat marinator with a piece of refrigerator drinking water tubing on the needle so it was thick enough to hold the surgical tubing.

In case you are wondering where to get syringes, you can get them from any Shoppers home health care or ebay. these are not a controlled item, and you can ger either the luer lock ones AND a catheter tip adaptor or the catheter tip syringes. Get 60cc syringes and your set.

Another system I've come up with uses a 3-way stopcock, basic baxter solution set (normal bore size), 60cc luer syringe, catheter tip adaptor, and two check valves. It works like this:




CATHETER TIP ADAPTOR ATTACHED TO GRENADE
|
[OUTPUT CHECK VALVE, ALLOWS OUTFLOW BUT NO BACKFLOW]
|
|
|---[CHECK VALVE to allow inflow this way: <-]------IV SET---IV BAG FILLED WITH DILUTE PAINT (just spike it and use a funnel)
|
|
|
[60cc SYRINGE, LUER LOCK TIP]

This works so when you pull back on the plunger, it draws paint into the syringe. When you push forward on the plunger, the paint is forced into the surgical tubing through a check valve, which prevents backflow. This works great to rapidly fill grenades.
