Thanks, Seal! And happy new year to you all!
You touch on an interesting point with the range. With 'conventional' water guns, I would also go for high range, meaning high pressure and high water volume. It just makes the most sense given the options in the current water gun market.
With the Spyra One, we are hoping to establish a different game. Or rather, adapt game styles from other shooting games to water wars, as I mentioned above.
I recently uploaded a review of an event we hosted by the end of the summer for which we designed an arena to test the gameplay in: http://www.spyraone.com/review-spyra-world-cup-2017/
What do you think? Is that even remotely related to anything you are used to doing? ;)
On that point, I don't think it would even make sense to combine 'regular' water guns and the Spyra One in a single water war. That's like... trying to play badminton where one person uses a tennis racket ;)
If we can make it at all, my colleague and I are planning a road trip through the States before our Kickstarter campaign in summer of this year. The timing is tight but I agree, if Spyra One survives your water wars, it will probably survive all of them!
