SEWELL, N.J., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Available today, JT SplatMaster is a new outdoor sporting goods product designed for children ages 9+. Providing a fun and safe backyard experience for the whole family, JT SplatMaster shoots color-filled round ammo resulting in a SPLAT! The product is being rolled out in the sporting goods sections of Wal-Mart, Academy Sports + Outdoors, and Kmart, as well as online at JTSplatMaster.com.
"Encouraging exercise and outdoor play is crucial," said Jason A. Taitano, Vice President of Marketing, JT SplatMaster. "We believe JT SplatMaster offers a fun and safe backyard activity for the family. Unrivaled in the category, JT SplatMaster is the only product that utilizes color-filled capsules as ammo, resulting in a 'splat.' Kids love the instant gratification of knowing the target has been hit."
The 100% biodegradable, non-toxic ammo is specially formulated for easy clean up and won't damage the environment. Splat removal is as simple as wiping off and washing away with water. There's no need to worry about picking up casings after playing, as they wash away with rain or disintegrate. The ammo is also water soluble and stain resistant, so it won't stain clothes or other objects.
The precision of JT SplatMaster exceeds all category offerings. With a fully integrated spring loaded pump action, it launches up to 100 feet, with marksman accuracy up to 50 feet. Providing high standards of quality and performance, the JT SplatMaster product line features a full suite of accessories that includes JT SplatMaster Optix goggles, ammo, targets and bunkers. There are two JT SplatMasters to choose from – the z100 ($29.99) and the z200 ($39.99).
As with all of JT's products, safety with JT SplatMaster is the number one priority. Traveling at speeds between 110 and 140 feet per second, the ammo has just enough of an impact to know that you have been hit and to make the mark, but minimizes potential welts and bruises. The best way to begin your JT SplatMaster experience is to master target shooting and obstacle activities. The product includes safety training and game play missions with levels ranging from easy to difficult to inspire various types of safe game play and creativity. Understanding and practicing guidelines and rules for handling JT SplatMaster and engaging in game play will keep participants safe and happy. It is necessary to take the time to read and understand all cautions, warnings, and operating manuals before using any JT SplatMaster gear or accessories.
"My kids loved playing with the JT SplatMaster," said Kelle Beuck, a mother from Riverside, Calif. "While I knew they would have a blast, I was amazed at how much planning and strategy they used as a team. They also were great about following the guidelines for safety. In fact, they seemed proud to have to wear the goggles, like they were cooler because of them. It was all part of the experience. The JT SplatMaster got them outside, active and thinking. I can't wait to play in our backyard this summer!"
