What is JT SplatMaster

JT SplatMaster is a low impact 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. The 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.

JT SplatMaster was engineered so kids, and adults, ages 9+ could easily cock, load, and fire. JT SplatMaster is a versatile product that can be played in your backyard – simply follow a few guidelines and rules, including always wearing your JT Optix for eye protection, and you will have hours and hours of safe, outdoor fun.

After learning the safety basics, new JT SplatMasters should start by shooting targets and advance to obstacle course activities. Check out the Game Play link for fun games and ideas – better yet, come up with your own and upload your videos to show us what you got, and win prizes! Advanced JT SplatMasters will graduate to player versus player competition.

With proper care, 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, backyard play for the entire family. Safe, fun and accurate.

Always wear JT SplatMaster Optix Goggles eye protection, including non-players within range.

Always keep the barrel blocker in the barrel and leave the safety ‘on’ when not firing. Never look down the barrel. Never shoot at or in the direction of windows or other fragile objects. Don’t shoot at other players at a distance of less than ten feet. Use only as directed – and read the manual included with every JT SplatMaster before engaging in play.

General Shooting Safety

Always wear eye protection when using your JT SplatMaster – including non-players within range. Keep your safety ‘on’ and barrel blocker in when not playing with your JT SplatMaster. Always point your JT SplatMaster in a safe direction – never toward people not playing against you (with proper Optix Upgrade full face protection) or animals. Always treat your JT SplatMaster as loaded – never look down the barrel. When not firing, keep your finger off the trigger. Always store your JT SplatMaster unloaded – you don’t want anyone else picking it up thinking it’s not loaded. Know your target – never shoot toward a blind spot – always know what you’re aiming at before putting your finger on the trigger.

What Parents Should Understand About JT SplatMaster

JT SplatMaster is a shooting activity that involves a degree of safety needed to play. Eye protection is essential, regardless of style of play. When playing player versus player games – the JT SplatMaster Optix Upgrade is required. The Optix Upgrade has the proper nose, mouth and ear protection necessary when playing against another person. When target shooting or obstacle course activities always wear your Optix Goggles – including non-players within range.

JT SplatMaster Ammo is specifically designed to break at the lower velocities the JT SplatMasters fire at. The Ammo is 100% biodegradable and easily washes off surfaces it marks. The color-filled round ammo will splat on contact and show you exactly where you hit. This makes it ideal for target shooting games and obstacle course play. If you keep your JT SplatMaster stored correctly, it will stay fresh and be ready to play whenever you are. Always keep your JT SplatMaster Ammo stored in a cool, dry play. If your Ammo isn’t performing correctly, it may not have been stored properly. Try putting the Ammo in your fridge for 10-15 minutes and that will freshen it up for your next game.

Other general safety guidelines for playing with your JT SplatMaster include; use a barrel plug when not playing, keep the safety engaged when not playing or reloading, don’t keep your finger on the trigger, know your target before shooting, never look down the barrel, don’t point at other people or animals, never keep your JT SplatMaster stored with ammo.
