Trekie00, you're lucky that you're dad has waterfights with you! My dad couldn't really be bothered and would be rather eating Doritos (not really like that, but you get the picture) .

Did your Dad get you involved or did you get him?

It's a long story. My dad got us two cheap piston water guns in Nebraska, about four or five years ago. It's a shame I didn't get a CPS 2000 then. We used them until late-2000 or 2001. Anyway, in the summer of 2000, I went to my grandparent's house. While looking at Toys-R-Us, I saw some Monster Xs and XLs, CPS 1700, I think the Big Trouble, and the CPS 2700. They might have had some smaller ones, but I didn't like them very much. Because the XL, the one I liked most, was ~$50-$60, I couldn't afford it. However, the 2700 was in the perfect price range for me. When we got back, I was going up against Dad with those two piston guns (he has rather large hands and could hold both). Eventually, a store near our house got the 1700 in stock. (We lived in Germany then, and it seemed like everything got there late.) Of course, my dad got it so he could soak me. We still have both, slighly used and scratched.

I guess Dad got me into waterfights, but I got him into Super Soakers. Since then, he got a MD-3000 but never uses it.

Favorite Soakers I have Used
---------------------------
Ive used many soakers back in the day. Around 1994-1995 my next door neighbor received two SS Clasics from his cousins, or bought them, i can't reember which it was. Anyways, we were little kids, and had small duels between the both of us. My friends would use the SS 50, and I would use the SS100 (Blue Version). I loved the SS 100 so much, but infortunatly it broke on us one day. Since then the SS 100 is one of my favorite blasters.
Back in 1997, I told my parents about a Super Soaker commercial I saw, and how i wanted one of the big ones. So we went out to our local Toys R Us, and I selected the CPS 2500. I cant remember what else was there, it was either a CPS 2000 or a CPS 1000, but i recall one with a purple tank. There were some CPS 1500s there as well. I went home, tried it out, and was amazed at the power. The kids in my old, old neighborhood would get together and have a few wars. Id always win evey one of them. So in conclusion, the SS 100 and the CPS 2500 are my favorite blasters, both classics today in age.

I have too much crap to pick a fave, but hmmmmmm, CPS2000 and CPS 3000 spring to mind(well, the 2000 is no more as such, it's just taken on the form of a Monster X.) Muhuhaahhaa, that's a beast when i put my home made back pack on it. :cps2000: O, and all this tlak of dads and water fights. My dad used to soak me, so one day I got my CPS2000 out, waited until he was saying goodbye to his girlfriend, stood about 40 feet away, then unleashed the biggest torent of water i've ever seen, all over his body, He was SOAKED. Dripping. I've never seen a gun that could attack from so far away with such devastating results. :cool: :cps2000:

Meh, the CPS 3200/3000 are good guns I suppose, if you know how to use them correctly, but it takes too much effort, IMHO, to pump them up (and in the correct position) to be worth it in battle (in a duel, anyway). You have to twist your body into strange positions to get the 3200/3000 to pump up right. Plus, the shot time on 20x is simply ridicurous.

The shot time on 20x for any blaster is pretty short, except for maybe a 2000 mk.1 because that has a larger pressure chamber, but that is just the nature of 20x, large output, low shot time.

Uh, but the Big Trouble doesn't even have a 20x nozzle. Unless you modified it, of course. If I drilled the nozzle of my Big Trouble then I'd definitely collossus mod it with one layer of bike tube as well, because the range of the 8.5x nozzle is bad enough, and I'd hate to see the range of it on a 20x nozzle. Oh, and I don't know if every Big Trouble behaves like this, but I'm assuming they do. At the begginning of the shot, the range is fine at about (I'm guessing this) 9 or 10 metres. But about a quarter or so into the shot the range starts to get less and less, then it stays at about 6 or 7 metres. So it doesn't even really behave like a CPS. It could've used a 3-5x nozzle as well to replace the useless power burst. I'm not saying the Big Trouble is crap, but it definitely wouldn't be my weapon of choice in any water fight.

You have a 2100 mk1 or 2. You'll need to hacksaw it off, its glued. I think I already posted here, but anyway my favorites are a CPS 2500 and 21000, depending on what the battle conditions are.

My hybrid CPS2000monster X and CPS2500/Monster X, my CPS 2000 when it was around, the whole CPS line, especially the CPS 3000, it jsut rules. I love my XP310, cuz I can run with it, and have been known to take out CPS type blaster with it, o and of course, my XXP275, that was the gun I was gonna get if i couldn't get a CPS2000, but then I managaed to get an XXP275 second hand. :cool: Oooooo, and of course, my XP 15, who can forget that beast....:D :p :blues:

I'd say that the most versatile soaker ever made is the Monster 2001.

...As for cloud...

Not necessarily, it takes only 20 something pumps to pressurize it.

What makes you think this? I've had no problems pumping it.

Than don't use 20x.

The only fault with the CPS3000 is the weak plastic bit where it connects to the gun(where the on/off valve is). I had 2 of them break on me until I got a replacement gun that I taped up with masking tape, and it seems fine.:cool:

The CPS-3200 has an improved design for the part that connects the backpack tube to the blaster (it is more durable, and it supercharges).
