Re: Replacement screws for old Super Soakers

Use a flat end M2 screw instead of self-tapping, there's no need for unnecessary sharp hazards lol.

Any of the usual sources - Aliexpress, Banggood, Amazon, eBay, etc. should work fine.

Re: Favorite Firing Valve Design?

I want to try the Hydrocannon again sometime, as its design has some unique advantages.

Maintenance and reliability is a serious issue for all water blasters. Gaskets go bad over time and they can't be replaced easily enough.

Re: HOG

Some plans came up, so I won't be able to make it anymore. Very curious to see how this game plays out though!

Re: Soakemore 2018 planning thread

I might be able to do August 11th or something weird like that. Really gotta see how my second visit to the east coast this year goes.

Edit: Actually probably not that either. I don't know at this point.

Re: HBWW Downsizing!

Some updates and clarifications: - I can't ship most CPS at the moment due to lack of packaging/boxes. These are best done through wars. - I will get some boxes in early August or so that are able to fit them, but would prefer to ship them via war anyway. - War schedule is being worked on. If by som...

Re: HOG

The 21st might actually work for me as well. I'm going to see if I can stack up another big trip to the east coast and get this insanity to work. (I have a lot of nerf wars lined up and haven't done water wars in a long time!)

Edit: Doesn't look like I can, sorry.

Re: 2018 Water Warriors/BBT Blasters

They don't need any more participants and their battles are the most boring of all wargames. Have you seen/played tournament-style paintball though? :lol: They didn't even have any Super Soakers, let alone BBT or Stream Machine. There was some kind of generic brand that actually looked like pressur...

Re: Most important stat for gameplay

I have a wrench to throw in here: Effective range. Effective range is a combination of both the range in which the stream stays laminar, and the velocity of the stream. It's the area where dodging a stream becomes progressively more and more difficult, and is the range where hits are most difficult ...

Re: HBWW Downsizing!

Most likely the leaks are from the pull valves, cracks, and/or stuff like reservoir O-rings. I may slash the prices down since many of them don't look very repairable but I'll have to test first.

I'll have to ask Scott if there's any updates on Soakemore this year lol.

Re: Meet Ups in VA and MD

I am going to be in Herdon, VA around the time frame of Jan 7-14 to attend Awesome Games Done Quick. I'm still working out a lot of details, but will likely be looking to wring together a Nerf/water war or see if Scott or whoever else can host. The logistics will take some time to work out.

Re: CPS 2500 Screw Size

The screws should be #2, but I'm not sure which thread, usually something coarse. (So perhaps #2-24 or #2-28; don't know.) Unfortunately, these screws can't be easily found in hardware stores and may have to be ordered on eBay or Amazon. You may want to measure the length of the screws you already h...

Re: Maintenance is essential now more than ever!

The most common issue now is that gaskets and seals are rotting. Things aren't going to end well, as the means to make useful and meaningful repairs are just out of reach for the most part.

There's a small chance I'll have a +1 if I do end up going. Wil from Nerf, who Rob also knows. Scott and Ben, would either or both of you be okay with him sticking around?

I'm still a maybe and won't know until rather late. (Really depends on how much I feel like driving more and more.) If I do go, I'll have no more than a 2500, 10k, Gargantua, MD2k, and a few water containers.
