Re: Just when I thought I'd seen it all. Toilet Paper Blasters.

Rubber band guns were super popular in Cambridge Assassins back in the day. Probably still are. I had a sweet double-barrelled one but it never worked properly, and a more ordinary pistol which did work well. My cousins had rubber band guns. I remember that they looked so cool. The advantage of rub...

Re: If you could only have 3 water guns

I like those choices CDMT Personally I think mine have changed a bit since I made this list. XP 150 A solid light primary able to hold its own against 1200’s if you are careful. Good for mid range defensive and close quarters fighting. XXP 275 Dark horse I know but I discovered that by running it o...

My neighbor owned one of those when I was little. It looked really cool but was rather pathetic haha.

Re: New XP20 review

Wow, isoaker doesn't even have a review yet. This is probably a pinch valve like the original SS 20. Pinch valve blasters often dribble water out of the nozzle when overpressurized. The new pump grip is yuuuge. Looks like it could still be a bit of fun. Thanks for posting Cantab. https://hydrowar.wo...

That's hilarious. I'm sure 3rd graders everywhere are rejoicing at this. Looks like they liberally took aesthetic ques from Nerf.

Re: Time-to-target

It would be fun to just measure several blasters and see how much of a variance there actually is. We won't be able to know unless we try.

As far as time to target, wouldn't you be able to measure that using a camera with a very high frame rate?

Re: What Gimmicks Did You Actually Like?

The XP 90 pulse fire was pretty fun. I messed around with a lot of the spray nozzle settings on various blasters too.

The new XP 20 is an SS 25 https://hydrowar.wordpress.com/ss25/

Re: Advice on organizing local wars

The irony of the drop off in forum interest is that reddit is hugely popular right now and reddit is basically a bunch of forums. Many of us were interested in doing multiple casual wars, but we all live far away. SEAL is 3 hours from me, Scott is 5, Storm is 6, etc. That is a long ways apart to do ...

Re: Super Soaker XP100 Review

I have an SS 100 mk2 and several of my friends had them back in the day. The tubing definitely didn't swell like that. I think this would be an easy mod. You just replace the tubing with some better quality tubing from a home improvement store. If you replace the trigger with a ball valve can you pl...

Re: Super Soaker XP100 Review

Where did you buy your xp 100? Also, I would hold off judgement kn the ballooning issue until more guns are tested. It could be a 1 off issue or an issue from one particular factory. Or it could be that they used crappy tubing on all of them... I replaced the stock nozzle on my SS 100 with a conical...

Re: 2020 Nerf Super Soakers - Return to Form?

I am going to buy so many of these. Just like I bought 4 Python 2 the last year they were available, because we don't know how long they will be around. I'm not too keen on the colors, but that's nothing a bit of paint can't fix. I'm willing to bet these are pinch valves and not XP technology. Pinch...

This is insane. Of course it would be designed by a NASA Engineer, just like the original.

Re: SS50-Colored Shoe

Even the logo looks like Super Soaker. Pretty cool. Did not realize that this was NBA related or I would have checked it out earlier. Russel Westbrook is known for his fashion.

Im also moving this to the humor section.
