Re: Storms Duelfest’s

Did some more dualfests today XP 215 vs Squirtgun 7-6 You heard right I tested it. Overall the squirt gun was on the defensive the whole time. It marginally outranges the 215 but it was outgunned on output. Max D 4000 vs Storm 750 5-6 Overall the 4000 is more powerful but it’s not as ergonomic and l...

Re: Spyra Two now available for pre-order

I'm disappointed to see that the Spyra Two hasn't integrated a reservoir, while the Sypra has good firepower and a reasonable RoF it doesn't mesh well with the fighting our community does. 20 shots isn't enough when you're half a mile away from the nearest water source unless its got otherworldly po...

Re: Battle at the River

Yeah, including my friends was as last minute as the war itself, I ended up driving to their house and waking them up to invite them. Justin is a total jock who’s always running and lifting weights and so he’s very comfortable with a fire and maneuver style of fighting even with big guns, especially...

Re: Canal Battle

On feb 2nd a cat crossed the road in front of my bike while I was bombing down a hill at 40mph. Somehow I missed the cat but I ended up faceplanting, in total I broke my jaw in 4 places dislocated the left side and it took 20 stitches to fix my chin. At the moment I’m on a liquid diet and at the mom...

Re: Water Warriors Garganuta X

Unfortunately this was not a result of the injunction but rather a deliberate choice from WW. In 2016 when the patients ran out they released the Hydropower Waterlord, the next year in 2017 they released the Cylindrical CPS Gargantua.

Re: Storms Duelfest’s

Ran some more stuff today Beast vs CPS 2500 5-6 Beast at long range acts like a defensive gun and the 2500 more offensive. This fight reminds me a lot the battle between my 300 and CPS 2000. The 275 puts a wall of water up and makes it difficult to move in closer, but the 2500 is slightly better at ...

Re: Spyra One

I’m hopeful that this thing will rival the 1200’s in power even if it’s limited to tapshots. Spyra seems to think that a water gun should only be fired flat, and based on the range claims and shot volume claims and duration of each shot I’m expecting a 5x nozzle and 40-42’ out of it angled range. Bu...

Well that’s even more disappointing, I expected a lackluster “light” primary and instead it’s another weak piston pumper.

Re: Water Warriors Garganuta X

I’m not to confident in this on the one hand my Pulse Master has firepower on par with a stock 1200 but with inferior RoF due to the small chamber volume. While I found it usable against other guns in its size class one of my friends who normally would use his 2500 tried it and basically just hated ...

Re: Storms Duelfest’s

Believe it or not Seal my 275 has everything that a stock 275 should have, it’s still got twin nozzles what I did was converted the shower and fan settings to an off setting, twin 5x and a 10x. That 45’ range has been verified against multiple CPS 2500’s on their 10x and in combat alongside Scott’s ...

Re: Storms Duelfest’s

I did a few more battles in the last week Storm T Shock 8000 vs Speed Loader 1000 6-1 This was a huge surprise to me, I expected it to be nearly a dead heat but smooth stream and 5x greater field life allowed it to utterly destroy the Speedloader Storm T Shock 8000 vs Colossus 2 9-2. A big win as I ...

Re: Filling/Refilling Equipment

I have not ever used the original QFD but I do have a Speed Loader 1000. What I did was you’ll use a hose barb wraps in Electrical tape and so far it works well, the tape doesn’t last forever though and gets changed every few months

Re: Storms Duelfests

Pulse Master vs Gorgon 6-6 Yes the legendary Gorgon returns to duelfest after a long hiatus. The result was a really good battle, overall the Pulse Masters 5x setting felt more powerful than the stock nozzles on my Gorgon but it’s superior PC volume allowed it to have a higher RoF and push the attac...

Re: Latest Modification

My latest mod is actually quite simple, After a duelfest suggestion by Seal caused me to use my Gorgon for the first time since 2014. I put an XP 70 pump handle I had from a junk gun on to improve the ergonomics on it. Now I can pump without It ever hitting the handle on the bottom of the gun lol. I...

Re: Water guns for dog walking

Something CPS that can be nozzled down is a tough thing to find new IMHO. The only thing that fits that description is the “adventure force power raider” it’s made by Water Warriors and I’ve fiddled with one myself the shell seemed pretty durable and it holds more than enough water too. http://www.i...

Re: If you could only have 3 water guns

I’m convinced with 275 or 300 requires a lot of time to become proficient against CPS But once down they are useful primary’s.its basically that you either specialize with it or it’s at a disadvantage to the point most people wouldn’t try it. Last time I used my 275 solo against a 1000 and a 2500 I ...
