if you wanna be REALLY cautious take your grips off and wrap some plastic around there, then put the grips back on... but ive only heard of a few people doing this

i would just play as hard as you can in those conditions and give your gun an EXTRA good cleaning when your done.... good luck in the tourney bro

Fly's are supposed to be some of the best guns for wet/muddy conditions. I know last year at the NPPL tourny in New Orleans most of the trix's and timmy's screwed up and broke down in the mud. Almost everyone I saw that had a Fly was still running wonderfully.

All the boards are coated as to be waterproof. The plastic on the grip idea is nice though. and no the plastic doesn't blow off, and if it does get some tape and tape it to the barrel.

Carapace -

Definately bro. During one game I took a dive into a huge puddle of mud and was basically partially submerged, my gun however went completely under. I had got back up to start shotting, but the game was already over cause my team mate got the last man out. After the game a team of guys with trix's that were watching walked by me and were taunting me cause they thought my Force went down due to the mud. I just pointed it their way but towards the ground and fired of about 50 air shots (we were still packing up our equipment, so we were in the pit area.).... it was so great cause all of their jaws dropped and their expressions were "WTF? How could his gun still be working?"
