Product Information:
This grenade is fantastic and has ALOT of uses in CQB. Pretty much useless in outdoor, and takes a while to reset but its still really useful. Only trouble I have with it is the O-ring sometimes dislodges when you detonate it and getting it back on streight is a pain.

Pros:
wide range
effective trigger system
easy to use

Cons:
long reload time
o-ring problems

Product Information:
I ordered two of these, one of which failed after about 2 uses and one that has yet to let me down.
I was meticulous in maintaining/lubricating each one, but the first just will not retain O-rings for a reason I have yet to understand. I have tried multiple different sizes and brands to no avail.
The second replica, however, has been flawless, and performed beyond my pessimistic expectations. I am a big fan of Airsoft Innovations and am sure the first model was simply a lemon.
I hope your luck is better than mine!

Protip - I wrapped pink duct tape around the sides of mine and marked my callsign/team affiliation on it with a sharpie. Makes it easier for me to find, or for others to return!
Also, I put a rubber band through the loop of the pin and tied it off just below the black cap to keep from losing the pin itself.

Pros:
Powerful
High capacity
Effective


Cons:
There are always factory errors that you should be wary of.

Product Information:
The tornado grenade has become a huge hit, and for good reason. It is effective and easy to use, but it still has its flaws.

The grenade is reusable. Creates a good spread with about 180 BBs, and is cheap to fill with propane. For the most part it is wonderful.


Pros:
Very useful spread in an urban environment. Detonation against hard surfaces is flawless.
This product is very durable. I have thrown it pretty hard against walls and it has survived.

I prefer the impact grenade to the timed grenade. The mechanism inside the impact grenade is very reliable. It is very easy with the impact feature to hit your target

The usefulness far out weights the cons.

Airsoft Innovation has great customer service.


Cons:
Usefulness goes down a lot in a wooded area. Tall grass is very bad. Sometimes it won’t go off. If it does the grass will drastically affect the spread. Save it for dirt and buildings.

It was all wonderful at first then the problems began.

Resetting the grenade is very cumbersome. There are 4 tiny trigger pieces that you must remove from inside the device. You unscrew the top to reach them. They are easy to re-install but. It is an annoying process if you wanted to do in the field. I tried to do so and I dropped one of the small pieces. They are a dark metal color and it was not seen again. I had to buy a rebuild kit to replace it.

At the bottom there is a lower “Valve cover” when unscrewed it reveals the propane fill port. When this cover is off the grenade is in “Safe mode”. This is because the gas that goes up through the BBs tubes pushes against this cover first. The valve cover is made of plastic and screws into the aluminum part of the grenade. I was concerned when I notice that the cover only turns about 1.5 times. This seemed like insufficient thread engagement. After a few uses of the grenade my concerns were confirmed, the valve cover blasted off. It is currently impossible to find any vendor with the valve covers in stock. (This may be a sign) Once the cover blasts off the threads are weakened and it happens more and more.

I only wish anyone would make a new valve cover with more threads.

In defense of Airsoft Innovations: The customer service is superb. I contacted them about my problems and they are repairing my grenade free of charge.

Product Information:
This grenade is awesome. It is perfect for buildings and things like that and sprays bb's every where. It is really easy to use and fill and very durable. I really like this and have found it great to have and it really sets you apart from the crowd!

Pros:
Durable, light, easy to use, reusable, fun!

Cons:
It is not great for woodland play as it does not always detonate and when it does it is not very useful.
