Hmm have you thought of weighting the frisbee to get more distance?

I can't see any stefans... um is it just me or is the quality so horrible that it's impossible to see it?

EDIT: Nevermind I saw one stefan. But I can't tell how far it went though.

The Grenade's got some distance!
(The Tapping sounds are the stefans hitting the fence)

And I don't think the other Grenades, suck at all. I've made, Taita's Grenade, and NerfMonkey's Grenades, and they both work quite well.

I haven't tried NerfMonkey's grenade (but I should since I have a spare maverick spring) but Tait's Anzac grenades seen like they would work really well, if only I could find a rubber band that fits. Right now I only have 7" rubber bands (they fit perfectly doubled over Nite Finders) so they don't work very well :lol:

I'm really liking this grenade though. It seems the easiest to throw and stuff. I gotta pick up some of those frisbees.

Oh I didn't see where you said it hit the fence. That's pretty good distance. What 30+?

Actually, Fence to Fence the distance is 67 ft. The camera was set on a board on the fence, and I threw it at about 10 feet out. Note that not all of the stefans hit the fence, some didn't go out as far, but all went forward.

As for weighting the frisbee: That time it wasn't "full" with stefans, but when loaded to the max and folded very tightly can be thrown pretty far before exploding.

I'll try and get some more video up tonight, since it's 90 degrees out and I don't want to pick up all the stefans.

The frisbee's are little promotional giveaways that can be bought for a company and such. I got mine with my schools name and address on it. I'd be able to sell "RenegadeNerf" frisbees for $2 each, as long as I get at least 100 orders. :)

Yes, this thread is old, but I am replying with some more video's and stuff!



This video shows the grenade being thrown indoors. The sounds of the stefans hitting the wall show that it has quite a bit of power.
Indoor Grenade Action

Notice the rather large "killzone" of the grenade when filled with only around 20 stefans.

I will be using this grenade, along with my primary , in an indoor war this week. I will post some more results, and try to possibly have video from the actual war.

Edit/ It appears that the original video's from the first page don't work, but I hope this video explains/shows how everything works./Edit

I notice that all of the movies show the grenade opening up and releasing the darts in mid-air, can you show a movie (or can you even make it) where the grenade "explodes" on impact with the floor or wall?

Hey...thats pretty freakin genius...I'll have to try this with the promotion Guinness Draft Frisbee I've had since forever. Those folding collapsible frisbees are one of the coolest things ever.

As per request.

Off the wall action!

Yep, first throw wasn't hard enough. Then my 3 cans of Mountain Dew kicked in, leaped and threw it at the wall, where it then exploded. It might be a little hard to see, but the second throw hits the wall and explodes to the side. Then, I dance for joy, as I run to the camera.

In the first post, you mentioned that it can hold 3 nerf balls.

Cut them up. They're dense enough to not need to be weighted (unlike stefan foam) and you don't need them anyway...

Cut them in half, then in fourths, then cut each fourth in half and you've got enough foam shrapnel to cover a fairly decent-sized blast radius, and the spray will be thick, so most of the time it won't miss anyone.

Nice job. This looks pretty fun. I'm not sure about practicality in a war, though, because transporting these looks farily touchy. I mean, you can carry the frisbees and the darts/balls, but can you carry them loaded and ready to fire, but hands-free? I'd prefer to still have a gun or two in my hands, but I don't want to have to load a grenade in the middle of a battle if I don't have to.

Just something to think about...

Off topic, but: Ronster, couldn't you just right click "and save target as" on those links he posted and then open them in Windows Media Player or whatever you're using?

EDIT: That's strange, it lets me save it just fine. Hmmm....

Nice job.  This looks pretty fun.  I'm not sure about practicality in a war, though, because transporting these looks farily touchy.  I mean, you can carry the frisbees and the darts/balls, but can you carry them loaded and ready to fire, but hands-free?  I'd prefer to still have a gun or two in my hands, but I don't want to have to load a grenade in the middle of a battle if I don't have to.

I built a ducttape and cardboard holster to hold one at my side. The grenades can be loaded and put into a loose cargo pocket and will not explode. Worst scenario, with the grenade in a pocket, you'd have a stefan or two fall out. I've kept one or two grenade's in one of my pocket, and have ben able to quickly pull them out to stop rusher's and have them not explode in my hand. I've also been able to fit them even tighter to lob to teammates for them to use during a war.

Might as well post now. I've been looking at the grenade for awhile(more or less since I joined) and I have thought of something: On the BBB, it seems the top arm works well as a spring launcher, all I figure one would have to do is put something there that could hold the nerf grenade, and a grip for you too pull it down, then launch it like a catapult. Think about it: You're at a standoff, and both of you refuse to fire, waiting for the other guy to. After you fire the BBB, you can follow up by launching the nerf grenade at them, giving you time to reload and fire again, this works, in theory anyway. I hope this will be useful somehow, since I have not tested it myself. Sorry if this has already been thought of.

You ever post make another post like that again and you're gone. I'm not even kidding. One more time. Tommorow you could find the greatest barrel material that would revolutionize the game and then post another topic like that and you'd be banned instantly. No warnings, no mercy. Just banned.

So, I am resurrecting this thread. Why? I had an apiphany! And yes, it hurt when it hit me.

So, take some music wire and make a 16 inch diameter circle with it and tape it together. Strectch some nylon fabric across the circle and cut it out some aobut 1/2 inch extra to the diameter. Now put the nylon on the bottom of the music wire or so you can fold the extra 1/2 inch over and hot glue it shut. You have now made a barricade buster.

I have not tried this yet, but I plan it. And with different material.
