Re: Super Soaker XP100 Review

Losing any kind of pressure release mechanism will definitely be a negative but I'm just not much of a pinch valve fan. That being said, before putting in the ball valve I'll definitely try shortening the stock spring by a few coils and seeing if that makes a difference as this would be an easy mod ...

Re: Super Soaker XP100 Review

While I had it open I wrapped a few layers of duct tape round the area where the bulge formed but i never re-pressurised it to check whether or not this actually helped. The spring used to keep the valve closed is actually fairly beefy, I didn't have any spares that were stiffer at the time but If o...

Re: Super Soaker XP100 Review

Perhaps a 300 re-release is a bit optimistic at this point but if sales are good I could definitely see a revamped, slightly smaller SS300 with a soft CPS3000 style back pack being producible at an affordable price. It seems like they're definitely more focused on targeting nostalgia at this stage t...

Re: LRT McMaster-Car alternatives and optimal tube diameter/layering

Ah sorry Ben I thought I'd read somewhere that you were graduating, still congratulations all the same, I actually did fluid dynamics as my advanced higher physics product in my final year of high school (although I dropped out of the class about half way through so didn't actually do any meaningful...

Re: LRT McMaster-Car alternatives and optimal tube diameter/layering

I had a look at accumulator tanks as pressure chambers but it was the price and the fact that I couldn't find any links to someone successfully using one that put me off. That's interesting that they do work though, the one litre one is a tad expensive but there is a 0.75 litre one on amazon that is...

LRT McMaster-Carr alternatives and optimal tube diameter/layering

Hello everyone! First I have to say it's great that the community, while smaller than in the heyday, is still around.
