Q: How long do the launchers last for?

A: Our water balloon launchers can last for years if they are taken care of. Being made out of quality products will keep you launching for a very long time. Extreme weather conditions will shorten the life of your launcher as well as any mishandling. Inspect your launcher often for any tears or cracking in the tubing to prevent serious injury.

Q: How do I get the maximum distance when launching?

A: There are several things you can do to increase launching distance. Try smaller water balloons, we've found that filling balloons to the size of a tennis ball works best. Launch the object at a 45 degree angle. And experiment by having the people holding the handles move closer together or further apart. Good Luck!

Q: What is your return policy? / WCI will help you replace any defective product that is not caused by mishandling or misuse. Pickleball paddle warranties vary by manufacturer. We will help faciliate contact with the manufacturer on Pickleball paddles and other Pickleball equipment, but ultimately it is up to the manufacturer to determine if your issue is a warranty issue that qualifies for replacement. Returns of non-defective items are accepted ONLY if item(s) are in NEW AND UNUSED condition. You will be credited your order amount minus any shipping charges and a 15% re-stocking fee. You must request a return authorization number for either type of return by using our contact form and explaining your situation. Read our complete Return Policy here.
