Topic: dont waste water
Replies: 8

I've drank water from my Blazer before. It tasted rubbery, and not that good. But it wasn't TOO bad. :p And the best way to not waste water it to use tap shots. I get 16-27 tap shots out of my CPS 2000. And I only get 4 1/2 PC's full of water. I last the longest in a war, with a CPS 2000, of all gu...

Max-D guns do not have that great range. I can say that based on all the guns I've seen with better range, and I have owned quite a few Max-Ds in the past. I just got a Max-D 3000. It has exceptional range, 35-40 feet. It's the tiniest little thing, but very nice. I am probably going to make a belt...

I found this article really interesting and useful to know. I've been applying it in my past few wars. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Yeah, iSoaker and ZOCCOZ have it right there. Output is output, and output only. There may be misconceptions based on nozzle size, but we're not talking about nozzle size or stream speed, only output. A stream could be shot that has the output of 10x and the stream size of an XP70(1x) .

No. I've heard it only gets 30 feet or less. I'd have gotten one if it got 40 feet! You must be thinking of somthing else.

$45. Man, I was thinking about bidding on this soaker. But now that all the forum members are watching it, there's little chance it will go for low prices. 2700's never really go over $25-30 apiece, right in my price range. But this one will now. :(

My concern was that output does not always accurately describe output. If two streams can have the same output rating, yet different amounts of water, then it just isn't right. A 10x nozzle could produce very little actual water, or it could produce a bunch of water. But the stat calls them both th...

Personaly I still like the CPS 1200, CPS1000 and CPS2100 over the Blazer. While the Blazer is this generations ass kicker, its underpowered compared to the small CPS Cannons of the past. I have used multiple models of all small CPS cannons, and my favourite is actualy the CPS 1200. I got two CPS 12...

ok guys...make me happy... i really want a monster xl so if any1 has 1 i will pay $80 plus shipping....(to UK) That's a lot. You can get one for $50 or less in wintertime, if you can wait. And you won't get one for just $80 at this time of year. And, a CPS 1500/1700, CPS 2500, or CPS 3000/3200 is b...

So there are no Scorpions in the USA, eh? Well, the Armourdillo also just first came out in Canada. I somehow smell an ebay Scorpion oportunity. Just make it sound good. Don't make it sound like some off-brand. It's "better than a Super Soaker", and "no pumping required". You could get a lot for it...

An be careful to losen the cap on the gun or you'll end up with a collapsed water tank. That's why I'm returning my Flash flood and Aquapack. I needed the water the Aquapack provided, and there's no chance I'll remember to loosen the cap ever time I use it. And were I to loan out my FF to someone e...

I'd go with the Blazer, too. It is the closest any recent soaker has come to CPS, and although I personally don't like it, there's not much else out there. Of course, don't expect "blazing" performance. Actually, it performs better than a CPS 1200, and is on par with a CPS 1000. The Blazer is also ...

Cool! Nice nozzles. Mr. dude wasn't really off at all. And this electronic pumping could revolutionize soaking. If it pumps well (and quickly) enough, and the motor can be tampered to be quiet, then there's really no reason to use a pumpable soaker. I'm sure the motor can be made more efficient as ...

I don't know if a poll was the best thing...this would be better as a discussion topic. Anyway, the Blazer IMO is by far the best. I've used all of those except the Hydra Pak. The Piranha is the second-best, unless you need a FF nozzle for some strange reason. The main stream on the FF is about equ...

One area where the Krypton beats the Blazer is in stream pressure. The Blazer's streams feel a bit weak, and move kind of slowly, but the Krypton's streams move quite fast and have a lot more power to them. At least, that's how it was on my '05 Krypton, don't know if it's the same for this year's v...
