If you stamp on an empty (plastic) 'Roll on' deodorant bottle - these fly out at about 200 mph. (Worth doing for that fact alone! :grin: ).

I've got two saved and a third one waiting to be stomped on before they get turned into bobbins. :grin:

They should be ok for putting an isotope in.

Have a box full of the somewhere, when I used to breed pheasants I would put black dots on them with a marker pen and put them in with the chicks, they would peck away at them all day and chase them around their enclosure thinking they were flies, good exercise for them apparently.
There are very tough little balls.
