I might be a couple weeks away from starting a preorder for grenades to be delivered 6wks from now. I've still got a lot of issues to deal with like the machined parts and some mould adjustments, but at least I'm not worried that my mould is completely dysfunctional which sometimes happens. Something catestrophic like that would have set me back by a year to make the dough to make another mould.

Sorry, not much to say in terms of updates. I've been working on some last minute improvements that look feasible. One is a safety related fix to the design. The other is to deal with an amateurish mistake I made.

I just got an ultrasonic welder which should be arriving today. I'm pretty excited as it's a pretty cool piece of equipment.

I'm going to have to finance the first manufacturing run with some help with an advance preorder. The preorder will help me gauge how much $$$ I have to borrow for the first major manufacturing run. As much as I'd like to survey players to get an idea of how much they'd pay for a grenade (to estimate demand), nothing is as accurate as a count of cash brought to the barrel head.

Preorder grenades will be injection moulded in a special colour which will never be made again for those who got in on a very special first order and helped me launch my product.

I'll be posting very good video footage and detailed photos of my product as I open the preorder for my first grenades. I'm renting a high speed camera that wings off a blazing 4000 frames per second at megapixel resolution to showcase this product. I won't be asking people to buy into an imaginary product.

I probably won't even use the grenade in a game, but just buy it for the cool factor! Even though a video will be nice, I don't think most people will need it to be satisfied about buying your grenade MadMax .

Also i think you should do the preorder off your website that way people like me can use e-commerce rather then attempting to EMT you money

Does anyone have Escort and PFI grenades that they can loan me? I'm going to be blowing a big chunk of dough on a days rental of a high speed camera. Filming my product won't take the whole day so I'd like to use the rest of it to shoot some interesting comparison footage. I also plan to get footage of GBBs in action. I might even have enough time to show some common malfunctions in slo mo to make it more clear how our stuff breaks.

Of course I'll be shooting the obligatory bb thru an AOL CD and a bunch of other neat things to maximize my day's rental.

So, can anyone loan me some competitor grenades? I had a PFI once, but it broke early in it's life and I tossed it. I've got a DeepFire but nothing else.

i really want to see the videos! watching stuff from high speed camera's is cool. seeing stuff drop tested and recorded with them and seeing what you thought was a pretty rigid material having waves throughout it is very entertaining. especially when the goal is to wait for it to break. just let us know when to throw the monies down
