Editor's Notes

March 23, 2019:

We would be lying if we didn't admit that the majority of water balloon launchers didn't appear to be very similar. In fact, they are almost identical, so when it came to rating them there were really mainly two factors that played a major role — durability and distance. When it comes to distance, there are three standout options: the Vivorr Captain Splash, the Quarter Mile Cannon, and Bam Extreme Slingshot. The first is known to have very resilient bands, and the last has also earned top marks for having a very durable pouch. Parents will appreciate that the Hydro Sling Assault and Yes4All Super Boom come with storage cases, so hopefully the slingshots and balloons won't be left lying all around the house. While the pouch on the Water Waves Sling has been reported by some users to rip over time, it does have a lifetime warranty, so if that ever happens you can just contact the company for a replacement. Whichever option you decide to go with, never let kids use them without adult supervision, as things can get out of hand pretty quickly.
