Gel blasters are usually made out of plastic, but at iHobby we stock metal models as well. In our range, you can find plenty of options to suit all kinds of preferences and purposes, including manual, spring-powered single shot, or battery operated and fully automatic.
Whatever you have in mind, if you’d like to play with semi-realistic army toys that shoot soft gel projectiles at 250 feet per second – while avoiding the pain, preparation, and mess of airsoft or paintball – then gel blasters are the ideal choice.
The difference between airsoft, paintball, and gel blasters
What makes gel blasters a more attractive option than paintball for many enthusiasts is the convenience. For paintball, we often need to deck ourselves out in a lot of gear so we don’t get hurt, not to mention all the space needed and the clean-up afterwards. Many health and safety issues need to be considered as well.
With gel blasters, the only thing needed is eye protection! Gel balls will need to be soaked for at least 2 hours before use, but they hurt much less on impact and disintegrate on contact, meaning no mess! With much less preparation and no clothing requirements, it’s easy to play whenever you want.
Although airsoft may seem like a more intense option – using compressed air to shoot plastic ammunition at 350 feet per second – its use is currently illegal across Australia.
