Gel-Blasters - Your Family's New Favorite Toy!

Updated: Apr 30

Splat-R-Ball - Gel-Ball Blasting Full-Auto Guns


The History of Gel-Blasters



Airsoft Gets Banned in Australia

Airsoft is the fastest-growing sport in the world with more than 200,000 people joining the sport every year. However, in some countries such as Australia, they have been banned or restricted due to their indistinguishable looks from their real-steel powder-burning counterparts.





Nerf tries to fill the gap in the market

This has inevitably led to our shooting sports brethren out there using a different weapon to play shooting sports with. You may already be aware of the growth of Nerf guns on the market. However, they never quite did it for the mass competitive market due to the cost of ammunition and lower-performance guns.





Custom and High-End Gel-Blasters

The need for a new platform ultimately leads to the Australians finding a different way of playing competitive shooting sports, which led to the development of Gel-Blasters custom-made platforms that are essentially high-end water guns that fire water-based gel balls at high speeds. These initial platforms were expensive and quite risky with the law.



The US gets involved - Mass Market opportunity

Fast forward a few years and now the Americans are in the market. Developing consumer-level gel blasters for the mass market allows younger shooters to have fun without the injury associated with Airsoft and Paintball.


Splat-R-Ball and DudePerfect

Now with the help of YouTube stars DudePerfect. Splat-R-Ball and DudePerfect have collaborated to launch the new age of fun Gel-Blasters where the price is lower making the game more accessible to worldwide audiences.
