When they release paint, do they spin around or just spray in one direction? I'm talkinmg about the pod ones and the Big Boy. If possible, can you post a video of one in action?

Tolgak: This is a pretty slow board, there's no need to "top" or "bump" a topic after LESS than 24 hours after it was originally posted. There are very few people capable of answering this question and they aren't "super-active" on the forums.

I, too, was wondering how the F-Bombs worked and specfically how the Big Boy was different from the standard version.

It's been 22 hours. You'd think that at least a member of the store would respond with something. If it were so slow, the topics above would not have been answered so many times by now.

The Big-boy version do a good job of spreading around an even spray when they hit the groud due to the way the "knot" is tied on the grenade.

The little betty and pod rocket version tend to flail and spray in one direction once they hit but they do a good job of marking the area.

the best thing about all of these is that rarely do they NOT go off.

ANYWAY! you may notice my post about the Squadbuster. it stinks though normal stores only seem to carry it though. The only squad it busts is your own when it shows everyone where you are or makes you vulnerable when your in a firefight.


Maybe they could call it the squad-leaver-aloner the only grenade with a will not go off guarantee. Tippmann has so much great products. I think the squadbuster is really a conspiracy by Spyder to sabotage tippmanns rep i meen they are experts at making junk that doesnt work.

I'm not sure about you, but all the Spyders I have come in contact with worked flawlessly...

Rory, about the Pod-Rocket / Little Betty F-Bombs... After you throw them, they DON'T spin... they just spray in one direction?

If they don't spin, then you got to make sure you get the 'nade pointed the right way before you toss it...

The reason most Spyders don't work is that the users abuse them. Most of the owners of the cheaper models are n00bs who don't know how to properly take care of them. I knew a kid who never oiled his spyder and he wondered why it stopped recocking. The reason tippmanns hold up so well is that they are made stronger so that abuse of any type can be tolerated.

Spyders aren't crappy. Many of the owners are.

They flail around enough to mark the area you throw it at. Usually it is going to spray one direction a bit more than another. Sometimes they spin sometimes they dont.. .but they always go off and if you lob a grenade w/in 5-7 of the person they are a goner.

VERY true! Tippmann makes just about the most rugged markers around... as for Spyder, the only problem I've ever had with one was my friend's $70-special (Spyder Sport).. but that's because the only metal parts in the body were the bolt, the hammer, the barrel and a little metal sleeve were the valve is.. the rest was thin composite.. my other friend was using it and broke the barrel off.. the whole thing.. as for the higher end markers, i wouldnt know, I've used a few Spyder clones (Rebel, Dragun, & Fuel) and have never had problems with any of them. I think its really a matter of quality of materials and also the quality of the care given by the user.. I imagine even a 98C would break down (eventually!) if an uneducated noob neglected it for long enough (if thats even possible)..

as for the squadbuster.. i've had one sitting around for about a year now, just waitiing for the right moment to use it.. given the amount of negativity towards it i think the time has come for me to test it.. besides, regardless of it's performance i'm gonna go F-Bomb from now on! if nothing else to support the Brigade!
