It's really aimed at the CQC market as the grass penetration problems limit outdoor uses. Still, it'd work well clearing trenches or outdoor structures.

There are some features which are aimed to improve outdoor performance which will be unveiled in a couple weeks.

It'd be nice if it you could field strip it, and clean it in the unlikely (or likely) event it gets mud, or other gunk in it.

Just a thought...

Were you not listening? It doesn't have loose pieces to fly off, the only loose piece you may end up loosing is the pull pin. On another note I CANNOT wait to see these in action. Goodluck.

AI Grenade Public Premier at TTAC3 Friday Sept 14.

MADMAX has just informed me that pre-preduction prototypes of Airsoft Innovations soon to be released BB Frag grenade will be showcased at TTAC3 this Friday Sept 14 at our 2nd year milestone free event.
This is the first public demonstration of this new product.

Although the production run is some time away the pre-production prototypes (100% operational and ready to be tossed ) will illustrate clearly the effectivness and simplicity of operation of AI's entry into the re-useable grenade market.

Please be advised that no close up photography of these grenades will be allowed for confidentiality reasons.

But you can see them in person... and even get to try one out.

You've heard the rumors.... now you can Check it out for yourself.. Come to TTAC3 this Friday and witness the public launch of this very important product.

( no grenades will be available for sale, these are pre-production prototypes, Production grenades will be hitting the market in the not to distant future

not too good for getting around grass but heck i'd use em outdoors here in BC. Nothing like a good toss into the fort or the crack shack that we got out here where there's no grass to get in the way put me down for a pre-order and a buncha spare pins while i'm at it! time to shop for grenade pouches now

Well, I included a short timer option that is very easy to set. It's possible to fuse my grenades for a 1.5s delay to make consistent airbursts. You can set the timing on the field (to 1.5s but not back to 3s). Airbursts don't have the problems of grass attenuation, but you HAVE to throw from a position with cover. It's very easy to suicide oneself with an airbursting grenade as the pellet range is quite far. Airburst grenades are really defensive grenades.

Airburst timing is not feasible with any other currently available airsoft grenade. Their timers are too inconsistent (+/- 3s at best!) to risk cooking off time or setting for a short average initiation time.

I designed my pins to be replacable with wire from typical coat hangers. I picked the diameter because i noticed a lot of lost pins in user testing. The music wire pins I'll supply will be more durable (hanger wire is soft), but you can still field your nades if you're waiting for spare pins in the mail. The only other part which broke in extensive testing was easily fixed with a wad of kleenex. My grenade is very robust. Even if you manage to bust it in a way that arose in user testing, you can limp it along with under a minute of improvisation.

That's very ingenious of you, and I'm sure a lot of people will appreciate your ingenuity!

not having seen the product, there is one thing I want to ask or suggest as an option. Is there a small hole or loop somewhere to tie some flag tape to where it doesn't really get in the way of operation? This would be kind of helpful to anyone who uses it outdoors so they can find where it landed easier if the grenade is a neutral color that doesnt stand out much, or to put something to mark your grenade from everyone elses just to ID it?
