Bought 3 of these on 11/6/09....very light weight and looks good. The quality of the internals also seems to be good (aluminum). However, when using in real skirmishes, all 3 units failed to function as tuned. I cleaned the internals and tuned the timing right before each games. I tested the unit to make sure the timing met my needs (~5sec). Each worked great during each test, but when the game started (~15-20mins after the tuning), I launched the grenades and 1 didn't discharge, 1 exploded right away as I threw it in the air, and one was super long delay (~15 sec). Basically, these were unreliable. It worked great as I was tuning it, but all 3 of mine didn't work when they counted the most...during games. I was so disappointed that I gave 2 away at the end of the day and kept one to remind me not to buy another one. Maybe the $100 version is better (all aluminum), but I am not going to buy another Madbull until I see some good reviews. Don't look at the video reviews of people testing the unit because they would work fine. Mine did too when I was just testing it. I think that's because as I was tuning it, the trigger mechanism doesn't get "sticky". Let the unit charge up and wait 15-20 minutes before you launch to see if it works as you tune it....that's what count in a real game.
Sturdy aluminum internals
easy to disassemble
NOT reliable when it counts.
Can get dirt/sand in the lower portion if you play in sandy fields.
