Re: Completed: Flash Flood / Monster X Hybrid

I think McMaster-Carr will ship throughout North America because of NAFTA, so bulk ordering isn't necessary. And you definitely won't need more than several inches of tubing, although getting some extra is advisable. There have been a couple co-ops before, and some plans for a more formal system, b...

Re: Completed: Flash Flood / Monster X Hybrid

I think the bladder mounting shouldn't be much of a problem actually, as long as the inner diameter of the tubing is roughly the same as the original so it'll slip over the barb. You'll then be able to clamp ontop it using the original mounting hardware. The end cap doesn't look to be difficult to t...

Thanks! I picked it up for $29.99 at Toys R Us. That's in CAD though if it matters.

If he's having fun with it, I'd say it's already of use.

Re: Completed: Flash Flood / Monster X Hybrid

I could probably work out a way to retrofit the Monster X's trigger assembly into the FF, although it would be a bit of work.

What's the consensus on whether or not I should do this? =)

Re: Completed: Flash Flood / Monster X Hybrid

The rubber bands tend to break much more easily than even the weakest Max-D spring (at least from my experience), and is not an effective long term solution. Effective long term solutions would be going to the hardware store and finding extension springs that are correctly sized and with proper tor...

Re: Soaker Wishlist - Which soakers do you long for?

No love for the XP-90? I had one 9 years ago, and eventually broke it over-lubricating the pump with vaseline and clogging it. I wish I kept it so I could retrofit the pulse-fire to my FF X.

Re: Cps 2500, extremely poor lamination.

Did the range increase noticeably with your better-laminated 20x stream vs the stock 10x that you say looks the same?

Re: favorite side arms?

I second the Max-D 2000. I used to have one of these with a bored out nozzle. Kicked nearly as hard as my FF X hahaha.

...that is, until one day i drilled a hole in the side of the reservoir and tried to attach a balloon in a fail attempt to augment the gun with a home-made CPS =p.

How come?

And is the rubber band method a permanent fix for the Max-D trigger failure? Should I just go ahead and do that now?

Re: Completed: Flash Flood / Monster X Hybrid

Thanks for the encouraging feedback! I'll try to post up a video sometime this week, but it's pretty rainy here in Vancouver right now. =/ Range is definitly better than before, but I can't comment on exactly how much better until I do some structured experimenting, which I'll do as part of the vide...

Completed: Flash Flood / Monster X Hybrid

Intro Hi all! I picked up a Flash Flood the other day at the Toys R Us with the intent to use it for a casual water fight this summer. I bored out the primary output nozzle with good results, and was somewhat satisfied. But then I had this urge to do more, so I googled up supersoakers, and came acr...
