Re: Adventure Force Super Storm - Walmart CPS

Wait, 40 pumps??? Dear god, you must have a lemon. That is possible, but there were no signs of any damage on the blaster or packaging, so couldn't tell. That said, I've put a note on my review pointing to BuffDaddy's blog review as well, noting the possibility that the model tested by me may be de...

I won't rule out that *someone else* might be interested in such an undertaking. As for me, I'm being a little more picky on where I choose to spend my limited budget on things.

Re: Adventure Force Super Storm - Walmart CPS

Well, did a little more testing on my Adventure Force Super Storm - I really couldn't get it to pump much more per stroke than ~4mL (and I can only guess that it pumps less than that as the pressure chamber fills). As for the pressure chamber, mine seems to max out at ~65mL (~2.2oz), but that takes ...

Re: Adventure Force Storm Surge - Walmart CPS

Just picked up one of these based on recommendations and wanting to be aware of what else is on the market. However, mine doesn't seem to be achieving the same stats as BuffDaddy's. I'm only measuring around 4-5mL per pump (I actually thought mine was broken at first since I felt no major resistance...

Re: What Makes a Good Battle?

I agree with your three main points, but I'd put the importance of Players above the other two. Good Players can compensate for a bad location and/or set-up; bad Players will waste good opportunities.

Pick three (3) new water blasters

I did not completely ask the question I had intended in the Nerf is "best-performing brand" at Hasbro thread . As such, for my own curiosity, what are YOUR picks as the most interesting new water blasters for 2016. Some of the new models can be found on the iSoaker.com Product Review listi...

Re: Nerf is "best-performing brand" at Hasbro

When it comes to creating water blasters that the WWn community would prefer, the biggest stumbling block is the general upper limit of $20 for non-"Super Soaker"-branded water blasters. BBT's forays into slightly more expensive water blasters have resulted in fairly flat returns. Making a...

Re: Nerf is "best-performing brand" at Hasbro

Good to see you, iSoaker. We definitely still wish to discuss blasters. Blasters and events are not mutually-exclusive subjects. We're just kind of...stuck...in the blaster department. Manufacturers have been unable or unwilling to meet enthusiast needs for such a long period of time that we've bee...

Re: Nerf is "best-performing brand" at Hasbro

Why are we water folks so cheap? We water folks are not cheap - the enthusiast crowd is too small. I presented the idea of doing a Kickstarter project with BBT - as they are a mass-market company, to be worthwhile, we would need orders of 5000 to 10000 units. Given that number, there's no way I cou...

Re: Additives for water wars

As I no longer moderate/administrate these boards, whether I would or would not permit topics is completely irrelevant. As for my reduced posting here, it is simply due to a difference in interests.

Re: Isoaker 2015 range testing

Well, there are at least five options: 1) I'm lying 2) I was unable to measure ranges accurately for those particular blasters, but ok for the other ones tested (I also tested the piston-based Nerf Super Soaker Splatterblast) 3) I made all the statistics up (similar to one, but with more creativity)...

Re: Buzz Bee Water Warriors Losing Market Share?

I think part of the problem is that it's not precisely clear what Buzz Bee is doing (This is more or less the point marauder made in the OP). Maybe they dedicate a lot of time to trying make better blasters, but we don't see that they spent half their latest board meeting discussing that. We don't ...

I agree (in some respects) that original boxes take up a lot of space, but this is about displaying, not efficient storing.

Re: Display stands

Original boxes work well if you still have them, but I could imagine one being a little creative with strong plate and/or picture stands to prop up a water blaster for display. I've either put boxes blasters on display, positioned blasters carefully on glass shelving for display, as well as displaye...
