JT SplatMaster is a sporting goods product that shoots color filled round Ammo resulting in a Splat. The Ammo is 100% biodegradable, non toxic, resists stains, and easily washes away with water. JT SplatMasters are spring loaded and shoot at a velocity of 110-140 feet per second. At this speed, you can see the Ammo in the air before you see the satisfaction of your Splat. This is a great option for younger kids and beginners who may not want to jump right in to a much more aggressive paintball match.
JT SplatMaster was engineered so kids (and adults!) could easily cock, load, and fire. After learning the basics of SAFETY, players will start by shooting targets and then advance to a timed obstacle/target course activity. Once the players prove they can handle the equipment and follow all safety guidelines, they will graduate to player verses player competition. By following proper safety guidelines and wearing the appropriate clothing, the gelatin shell of JT SplatMaster Ammo will have a low impact break and is not painful. You will feel impact, but it doesn’t “hurt” – at times, some say it feels like a minor rubber band snap.
JT SplatMaster is active, energetic play for the entire family. Safe, fun, accurate – book your party now and Get in the Game!
Question: What Does it Feel Like to Get Hit?
This is the number one question new players and parents ask. JT Splatmaster Ammo has been developed and designed to shoot straight, break on contact, and clean up easily with water. The way it’s been described by 9+ kids is that it has a minor sting, like that of a small, thin rubber band. When the JT Ammo hits something or someone it will break most of the time, especially on hard services or muscle/firm parts of the body. We say, “most”, because there are times when the JT Ammo may hit a “soft” part of the body and bounce. To check out a video that shows what a 10 year old thinks about it, click HERE
Question: Can I Reuse Previously Shot JT SplatMaster Ammo?
No. Once you shoot your JT SplatMaster Ammo, do not attempt to reload it. The SplatMaster Ammo can have dirt or particles on it and it will jam your SplatMaster. Also, JT SplatMaster Ammo left on the ground for any considerable time can begin to swell, crack, or change shape due to weather conditions, resulting in a jam, and ultimately broken Ammo in your SplatMaster.
Question: What is JT SplatMaster Ammo made of?
JT SplatMaster Ammo is made of 100% bio-degradable, non toxic color filled gelatin capsules. JT SplatMaster strives to make a significant effort to reduce the impact on the environment. Through smart formulation, we use a large portion of recycled materials from other industries. Also, we manufacture JT SplatMaster Ammo using between 15% and 40% recycled and redirected materials that are considered waste, but environmentally friendly, that would otherwise be headed into the waste stream. SplatMaster Ammo is water soluble and easily cleans off most surfaces with just water.
Question: Is JT SplatMaster like Paintball?
For those familiar with paintball, JT SpaltMaster does have some similar characteristics on the surface. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that JT SplatMaster really is something totally new.
- First, JT SplatMasters are powered by spring pressure, not compressed air or CO2. This results in the Ammo only traveling between 110 and 140 feet per second versus 300 feet per second, the speed of a paintball.
- Second, JT SplatMaster Ammo is smaller in size than standard paintballs, and when you include that characteristic with the reduced speed the Ammo travels, it results in less energy – which means, less impact and considerably less “ouch”.
- Last, we have developed a special shell and fill that is designed to break on contact traveling at the low speeds of JT SplatMaster.
Question: Can I use a Paintball Goggle?
Yes. Paintball goggles developed for paintball will protect players from JT SplatMaster Ammo. So, if you already own a paintball goggle, it will provide full protection for all types of play with your JT SplatMaster. JT SplatMaster developed the JT SplatMaster Optix and Optix Upgrade as a modular goggle because of the different types of game play. The JT SplatMaster Optix is used when shooting targets and running obstacle course type of activities. With the addition of the Optix Upgrade, which includes a full facemask and protective ear pieces, players are ready to safely play in versus battles.
