Has anyone ever purchased a webgun from Shadows edge? I know they are less expensive but I didnt know how good they are. If anyone has had one or used one pm me and let me know if you had any luck with it.

you'll just get frustrated and smash it. At least I would. Buy one from Minions web and you wont have any problems. I use one to do up to 70 rooms a year at our attraction and it's great.

I think the webcaster is fine for HomeHaunt use, but anyone doing a pro Event definitely needs a Minionsweb gun. I own a couple Ghostride guns that I use for back up, but my Minionsweb is by far the best thing i have EVER USED! I think the adage that you get what you pay for comes into play here.

They are good web guns.
I sold over 380 units last year. Not one return.

Any of you that are comparing guns tried the WebCaster gun?

Frightener I tried one, like I said in my opinion its fine if you are shooting some webs on a smaller scale, but wouldnt consider it for larger jobs, Its a 35 dollar chinese webgun, I cant think of to many proHaunts that would use it as a primary and risk not having their haunts webbed because something didnt work.
This is not a slam against the webcaster gun, I have TWO top of the Line webguns from someone else that doesnt get the job done to my satisfaction either and they both were nearly 300 each....
My MinionsWeb gun is the only one I truly trust to get the JOB DONE RIGHT!

How many Pounds have you personally shot thru your webcaster Frightner?

08-12-2008, 01:16 PM
I have Jeff, and there is no way you can shoot webs 30' or more with it like you can one of Corey's guns. I was webbing from the inside peak of a cattle barn down into the scenes without a problem, and that was only with corey's ccl, the 2nd gun up in the line.

Wonder what Coreys cooking up in the webshooter dept. for next year...... as long as its not my brand new doublebarreledwebshootingwonderwhizzersuperdyduper dy Ill be HAPPY! BTW Ive got Minions Top of the Line shooter and it is the BEST webber I have ever used personally!

I have used the webgun on multiple occasions and it works very well. It can cover a large area rather quickly. The guys at the Transworld show let me demo the product which was really cool. I would recommended it to any home haunter but I don't know if it would fill the needs of a professional haunt.

Tough call, think 6 lbs to date.
Could be more, not sure.

Let's just say I've taken in other devices out there on trade (unhappy owners), be whatever they are, they are happy now.

I have sent these out to 4 large haunts last year, very happy, bought more.

Matt and everyone over at Shadows Edge have been nothing short awesome since I been doing business with them last year.
