So, yeah, I'm buying Draconis' balls.
...that came out wrong.
Seriously, the lack of new ammo for old blasters like the Ballzooka will be a continuing problem. Personal ammo dumps like Draconis' will wear out long before the blasters do, and unlike megas you can't roll your own out of insulation. With the introduction of the in-name-only Koosh balls (slightly LARGER than green Ballistic Balls) this will soon affect even last-gen Reactors and Buzzsaws.
So, my original question. Does anyone know of a source of foam balls compatible with older ball guns like the Ballzooka or Master Blaster? Such as a brand of foam golf balls without the dents?
P.S. I actually FOUND a source of working balls. Only problem is, they are the Angry Birds Star Ears Koosh balls.
PRO: the balls are a softer grade of foam than the stock Koosh balls, and therefore fit in my Ballzooka. Works PERFECTLY, and even looks cool having Pork Vader's schnoz sticking out the barrel. BUT...
CON: with both the Star Wars AND Angry Birds Licenses, they're a bit pricey. Plus, the promotional line won't be around forever.
