Re: Spot the Diff?

Is the second Vindicator a prototype/fake one? Looking at some parts it does not seems to be made out of plastic (It is painted). Maybe a wooden prototype or something.

Re: Spot the Diff?

The light blue casing is a bit different here and there, especially on the top and front. The nozzle selector is shorter on the first pic.

Oh, I think the main difference is that the second vindicator is a larger version (more pounds when filled).

Re: Further laminator use

Thats nice! Didn't thought someone else was adding straws/screens to increase lamination of larger nozzles! I first experimented this with my Flash Flood's nozzle selector . It does a pretty good job focusing streams, as well as doing a range boost on some nozzle sizes. Later then I designed another...

Re: Old Soakers at BIG "K"

Wow, great finds! When I found my NIB XP backfire at my local Zellers last year I asked if there were more old ones like this, and unfortunately there were no other. When I saw the CPS 1200 on the back of it's package I was like: «why not this one instead?!» :oo: Seems like you've got luckier than m...

Re: Internal Pics: Super Soaker Hydro Blitz

I've seen 4 different hydroblitzes opened and I've spotted slight differences between every one of them.

For this one: Why the heck is the pump rod blue?

Re: Latest Soaker / Water Blaster

RECENT ADDITIONS: Aquashock Hydroblitz (x2) : Might sound crazy, but I wanted to dual wield those :D. I have a feeling that they might get harder to get in stores. I'm also going to modify one of them (nozzle selector mod, pressure gauge mod and maybe colossus) My cousin gave me his whole armory! : ...

Re: Latest Soaker / Water Blaster

Hi! It's been a while since I've posted here. Well, today I just got my hands on a WW Blazer(Blue/white version, the packaging and decal desing is different than the one shown on isoaker.com) and seriously, I don't get why so much people liked this one. With a limited grip area for larger hands, an ...

Is the splat blaster useful in battle? I like shotgun concept (one pump = one full shot), but I've always doubted its overall performance (output/power/range).

^When you look at the HB vs the 1500/1700, It is unfortunate to see that the hydroblitz has so poorer performance while both guns has the same PC and reservoir capacity. IMO, they shouldn't have included the useless burst system to make room for a bigger, stronger and properly positioned PC. Add a ...

Here is another Hydrolbitz youtube video. Was my hydroblitz faulty or the burst mode is supposed to shoot that fast? I think it looks much more drenching than usual.

Do you have any idea what kind of high pressure limit your 1200 has? If the mk3 is like the mk1, it might also have a really high HPL. I'm not sure of the exact limit, but it is currently k-modded with 25 ballons and the PRV takes the added pressure without problems. Even when the bladder hits the ...

Does the water dribbles out of the nozzle itself, or does it leaks from somewhere inside the front casing?

I had some very similar leakage problems with the same gun (mark2) so I'll be able to provide some good assistance.

It seems like there's also two versions of the silver and purple 1200. I noticed that the 1200 shown on How stuff works has a female ended PC, while mine has a male ended PC. They cut the casing to open it instead of prying off the nozzle cover, so maybe it is glued like on the mk2. The nozzle cove...

Speaking of the XP 105, I just got one and it is now my favourite xp in my armoury over my XXP 175. While both blasters are a pain to refill because of their reservoir designs, I like better the 105 for it's light weight when loaded and it's ridiculous amount of pumps to pressurize (thanks to the s...

This is just my opinion, but I think that the Big Trouble has much more kick, range, power, and output than the SZ. I own both, but have had little use for the SZ, that's why i'm selling mine. It's already sold, i mean. The Big Trouble is much better and more practical as a backup weapon as well. T...

The most common one is a CPS 2000 PC in a CPS 2500, something I would suggest if one has both those water guns. If the 2500 has exactly the same trigger vlave as the 2000, which is held together by screws, it would be possible to just switch the nozzle selector from the 2500 to the 2000. Has someon...

Every gun whose their name begins with CPS is good to get(exept maybe the CPS 1-3-5). :cool: This CPS 1000 is ending in a few hours and it seems it will go for cheap, it may finish under 50$ including shipping.

My technique to fully empty the blitz was to point the gun down and move the switch up and down from burst to stream while pressing the trigger until there was no more extra pressure/water remaining. It works fairly well.
