Several favorites. The best soaker in existance IMO is the Powersurge 2500, which dishes out far more water at one time than the Flash Flood, possibly more than the CPS 2500. The CPS 2500 is a great all around soaker. The Pirahna is my favorite currently produced water gun, due to its compact size and moderate power. The SC 600 is a favorite due to the medium range/low power. It usually lasts me for an entire fight. The Storm 750 is probably the greatest pistol in existence - rugged, good range, easy to use. And of course the CPS 2700 red edition for looks.

I'd have to go with the XP 150. It may not have CPS Tech, but it is still a solid, capable rifle, so long as it's in good working order (which mine isn't :( ). After that I'd go with the CPS 1200 or 1000, good light CPS rifle allowing for mobility with a range comparable to that of larger soakers.

CPS 1500. Good output, great range, lots of water, fairly good shot time, pretty light for a CPS, and powerful. The only flaw I can find on this soaker is the weak pump.

It's way too hard to pick one.. Right now if I were to go into a random water fight, I might take the CPS1-3-5. It's got great power and easily conserves water or drenches with the twitch of a finger.

I would have to say a 1700 with heavy tribulation mod. (soon to have one.)
Stealth over speed. Accuracy over firepower. Coordination over chaos.

Mine would be the XP-310. I don't know why, I just like it (maybe because it was my first Super Soaker?):)

^ XP310 is a great soaker. I like its shape, size, colour, performance, and general feel. Too bad it wasn't given a fan-nozzle setting.

I have the same problem ChrisReid has (probably for similar reasons :goofy: ) These days, in a larger water fight, I'd still likely opt for a CPS1500 or Monster (2001). The Blazer is also a good option as well, though the larger CPS blasters still pack a little more oomph. However, for smaller skirmishes, I find myself wanting to put the Flash Flood to use. However, for mini-fights, the XP215 still rules.

My current fav is my CPS 2500, I like its serious, no-nonsense design and power. I'm getting 2 CPS 1700s soon, I think they will be great guns, too. I purposely left out modded guns, as you all are sick of hearing the word "21K." :p

I like the CPS 1700. It has a 5x setting (actually more like 8x) which has both great range and output, and has a heavier 10x stream, also with great range, for when heavier firepower is needed. The large PC size, decent reservoir size and overall fell of the soaker makes it a great primary weapon for all applications.

My favorite is the monster. It's a qfd gun with descent size nozzles and a rather large resivoir.

CPS 1500. I don't want to list everything so I'm just going to say, I think it's the perfect gun.

You already said that...
So I will too.
CPS 1500. Closely followed by Monster 2001 (NOT 4100). Then CPS 2000.

Hi!

My favourite soaker is the CPS 1000 because it is the only one I've ever had .....

We are a group of french people who are looking for buying 5 or 6 CPS. As you perhabs know, in France CPS have been prohibited to be sold in our country. But importation is not prohibited. That's why We're trying to import 5 or 6 CPS 1000,1500 or CPS 2100. Can you help us to find our pleasure! Send me an e-mail if you know some interesting link.

Thank you

Jeremy

CPS has been prohibited in France? I never knew that! I wondered why there were no Super Soakers on eBay France!

I have three new CPS 2100s you could import if you want.

En réalite, je pourrais le discuter en francais, si vous voulez...ca sera bien pour mon francais (excusez-moi le manque d'accents!) :D

EDIT: Post 250.

@ Benif: Bienvenue! Je parle seulment en petit peu en francais. Thus, I fear my spelling and grammar isn't as good as it should be (plus the fact that it's not easy for me to type with the proper accents in place).

Anyhow, looks like Spinner would be able to help you with at least 3 CPS soakers. He's also closer to you than I so theoretically shipping would be cheaper. I'm quite surprised that CPS soakers are not sold in France. Do you know why? Do you know if Water Warriors by Buzz Bee Toys (perhaps under a different name) available in France?

I'd offer to help as well, but I currently don't have any CPS soakers for sale.

Hi!

Don't worry, you're french accent is good:)

The Cps have been sold only during one year. That's why few of french (as I) could have bought CPS 1000 or 1500. but very quickly, the french reglementation has told that that kind of watergun are to dangerous when they are used to closed of your adverse player. So now, they've choosen a power level above which it is prohibited to send a watergun. From this date, it was impossible to find any CPS 1000 or further. (French law are very protectionnist:p :p )

I don't kow what Water Warriors by Buzz Bee Toys are! do you have anything that could explain me. Perhabs it has been prohibited too :(

Thank you for your answer and your welcome
i answered you by mail Spinner
