What is JT SplatMaster?
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. In our video, Does SplatMaster Hurt?, we put this theory to the test by asking a ten year old how it feels after being hit by JT SplatMaster Ammo.
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. Also, if JT Ammo is not stored in proper conditions it can become hard and resist breaking – check out How to Store Your Ammo to keep your JT Ammo in prime condition.
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.
