A friend of mine mentioned that he finds the output of his Colossus 2 lacking, particularly in soakfest, but also for hit based games. Especially when compared to my CPS 1000 and another friends Hydro-power Sphinx, his Colossus 2 just is not as intimidating on the soakage front. I would be happy to perform a nozzle drill for him, but i wanted to seek the advice of the community so i could have a reasonable idea of how such a mod would perform and what drill size to use for a useful result before suggesting the idea to him.
My first question is what sort of output can the colossus 2 realistically support? (given it only has 290mls of PC to work with. Also the re-charge time is not amazing - 15 pumps to fill the PC)
the Air pressure Sphynx has a smaller PC (260) than the C2. But it has much greater output on its largest nozzle than the C2 does (the Sphynx has a 27ml pump so can recharge faster so can better aford higher output)
Sphynx -N9 ::
Flat 9.5 m (31.17') Angled 12.0 m (39.37')Output 130.0 mL/s (4.33 oz./s) Shot time 1.5 s
i assume the colossus 2 could manage comparable stats
my second question is which nozzle to drill?
Colossus 2 -N3 - stream :
Flat 9.0 m (29.53') Angled 11.0 m (36.09') Output 36.5 mL/s (1.22 oz./s) Shot time 8.0 s
Colossus 2 -N5 - stream ::
Flat 9.5 m (31.17') Angled 12.0 m (39.37')Output 60.5 mL/s (2.02 oz./s) Shot time 4.5 s
Colossus 2 -N9 - burst ::
Flat 9.5 m (31.17') Angled 11.5 m (37.73') Output 85.0 mL/s (2.83 oz./s) Shot time 3.5 s
i personally would drill the N3 as i value the range of the N5 and the spread + range combo of the N9 burst (although clipping the bars is an easy way to get more output as mentioned in the discussion of the Waterlord)

Enough of my thoughts - What do you think?
