Re: Ultimate Water Warriors

I'm positive the Explorer is a separate PC air pressure gun. If you look closely at the instructions on the back of the box in the first picture, the first step reads: "For maximum performance, pre-charge the water blaster by pumping the handle 10 to 12 times BEFORE adding water". Obviously that wou...

Re: Water Warriors Vindicator

Just a heads up to any Aussies looking for these, they're on sale in Supercheap Auto for $20, and you can order them from the website and get free shipping. I bought 3 of them and am very impressed! I also compared it to my CPS 1000 and it's pretty much equal in terms of performance. It's a pity abo...

Re: Favourite Water Blaster Design: Nominations

- CPS 1000 - SC 500 - XP 70 - XP 110 - STE Triple Shot (not the XP85!) - Sneak Attack - PulseStrike The '98 series was excellent not just for it's performance, but styling and ergonomics too. I always liked that the triggers were always quite far forward, taking the strain off your wrists and puttin...

Re: Water Warriors Vindicator: Internal Pics

The more I see of this gun, the more I like it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like they're using a larger ball valve than on previous models, which explains it's good performance on the largest nozzle. Would still rather a pull valve, but regardless it's a great improvement. Probably won't s...

Re: Hands-On: Water Warriors Vindicator

That gun is awesome! Great review! Looks like they've finally brought something out that can compete with the older CPS series. This is great news. Do you feel that the largest nozzle is similar to the 1000/1200/2100 series in terms of power? I'm also curious as to the insides of this thing. Is it a...

Re: Hands-On: Water Warriors Pulse Master

Awesome review! Really hoping I can find that gun somewhere... One thing I'd like to know is whether there was any pump lag on this gun; something I noticed on both of the smaller models. I really feel that the pump was the only hinderance on those guns, as removing the lag and perhaps increasing pu...

Re: Water Warriors Pulse Series Size Comparison

I never did find the largest gun, so now it's my turn to be jealous. :goofy:

It looks awesome, can't wait to see your review on it.

Re: New 2009 Soaker: Water Warriors PulseStrike

The most striking thing right now is the short pump. Combined with their "claims" of few pumps required for pressurization, I can't see there being much PC volume. But with smaller streams that might not matter. The pump is about average in terms of volume. While it may look short in the picture, t...

Re: 2009 Water Warriors Pulse Series

Just picked up the smallest gun at Target yesterday for $20AUD. http://i38.tinypic.com/vmrfit.jpg http://i33.tinypic.com/2nk50u9.jpg Functions similarly to the PulseStrike, around the same shot time so the nozzle is a bit smaller. Again, good stream speed and decent range, and quality construction. ...

Re: 2009 Water Warriors Pulse Series

BTW, notice anything funny about these pics (apart from the lack of stickers)? They're wooden models, right? :D They look awesome, I'm really hoping that I can find the other 2 guns somewhere. I hope I haven't overhyped the gun's performance though! Again, shot time is very short and the pump lags ...

Re: New 2009 Soaker: Water Warriors PulseStrike

As an aside, may I repost these pics on iSoaker.com?
Yep, no problem! Any other pics you might want to see, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Re: New 2009 Soaker: Water Warriors PulseStrike

If you liked the precharger guns then you're gonna love these, they are better in just about every way. Anyway, in the name of science and being impatient I decided to open up the gun. http://i37.tinypic.com/23w791d.jpg http://i37.tinypic.com/25spthj.jpg Pretty clean and simple layout. They are usin...

Re: New 2009 Soaker: Water Warriors PulseStrike

Edited my first post with some more pics. Also took some stats: Output: 40-45ml/sec Reservoir capacity: 1750ml Pump Capacity: 22ml PC Capacity: 75ml The gun seems to have a slight problem though, in that it hisses after the 3rd pump which is a good pump and a half before the PRV kick in. I'm not sur...

New 2009 Soaker: Water Warriors PulseStrike

Just picked this up at Target for $25AUD today. It looks like this is part of the new line that's replacing the WW Precharger guns. http://i38.tinypic.com/34hjhnn.jpg It looks to me that this is the mid-size model that replaces the Xenon. It still requires '4 pumps for maximum power' however that's ...

Re: Clearing House

I would like to point out that I still haven't heard from Cobralex since I originally replied to this thread 3 months ago. I also still haven't seen the XP 70 I paid for over 7 months ago. I've pretty much given up hope on this one, as numerous emails and PM's have gotten me nowhere. I would like to...

Re: Clearing House

After seeing this, I'd like to know where the XP 70 I bought off you has gone. It's been nearly 5 months since I paid you and I haven't heard anything from you since. If for whatever reason you don't want to sell it to me, I'd be happy to just settle for a refund. My PM's seem to go unnoticed so I h...
