Pumponator BLASTCAMO Water Balloon Blaster

Post by isoaker » Tue Dec 24, 2013 11:54 pm

Has anyone ever seen one of these water balloon launchers in real life?

I was poking around various retail sites and came across this 'zook-styled water balloon launcher. Not quite clear on how easy it is to operate nor what sort of ranges to expect from the launching mechanism.

:cool:

Oh, sure... actually try READING the box as opposed to guessing. :goofy:

Advertised 40' range; well, it seemed interesting at first glance.

Perhaps even Walmart's employees in charge of web content get paid so little that they'd neglect the most important information about a product listing. Or perhaps the manufacturer simply neglected to send the fill description for the website listing.

I was skeptical in the first place, since water balloons are heavy and it takes a lot of power to launch one.

I don't know what's funnier; the advertised range, or the name.

If I couldn't get a CPS 1200 for the same price on E-bay, I'd probably buy this. Wouldn't be very useful in community wars, but it would be pretty fun to use in casual local ones. At the same time though I could build a homemade launcher with at least twice the power for only slightly more money.
