The taped/marked nozzles

This will let you know which nozzle you use. In the heat of battle, you have no time to flip your soaker over and check your nozzles' size.

I do not take credit for these simple mods (I got them from a website, forgot which though... :goofy: ). They are so simple and effective that I think every single water warrior should have them. So do you have these mods?

Nice mods, though I alredy use both of the mods. :)

I've got better than just labling the nozzle: my Super Soaker CPS 2700 has a modified nozzle with a handle to make rotation easier. The nozzles are also labled, but I can tell what nozzle it is on from a quick glance at the position of the handle most of the time.

I love how you used a sponge for the second modification! I've done that before on my Super Soaker Vaporizer when I added a pressure chamber and larger nozzle. Read my Attaching reservoir caps modification to see how I did it (should be a "repair" but they were "broken" from their creation!).

On my homemade nozzle selectors (threaded type), I usually write what drill bit size I use now on the side several times. That's not a good way to determine the output, but I usually don't use nozzles that are very large. There's 3 essential nozzles to me: a small one with a long duration, one maximized for range, and a riot-blast. I find myself using the duration nozzle more often that the rest (mostly due to the added duration!). :)

Taped nozzles... simple and effective. I tend to just write on mine, but tape probably stands out better.

The sponge-holder is nice. Much simpler and less noisy than any other tether-device I've seen. I've often considered wrapping some of the stock plastic-tethers in sponge-type material to keep them from making noises when hitting the sides of the reservoir. Perhaps a full replacement would be a better idea.
