Re: Hands-On: Super Soaker 250

New update, still lacking solid numbers but it looks like the shower nozzle gets a better range than the others. I'll hope to get around to doing a range test before the end of the summer.

Re: Super Soaker CPS 2000 Mk1

Wait, wait, wait. I'm not even sure I trust this guy, 1990? The copyright is on the side, how do you mess that up? I was thinking of buying an MKII for Downpour, but if this is what the summer does to prices, forget it, I will wait. Besides, Rob has plenty of loaners! :goofy: Many LEGO sets could g...

Re: Is there anything better than the FlashFlood?

I've done it, it concentrates the stream a bit more so it doesn't spread out all over the place. Whether that sounds good or not is up to you.

Re: Is there anything better than the FlashFlood?

You can get a lot out of the main stream nozzle if you drilled it to a slightly larger diameter. It tends to get a reasonable range and will get people wet enough that you don't have to depend purely on the flood nozzle.

Re: (second) Best Air Pressure Gun?

I haven't shot it outdoors yet, but my 250 seems like it's significantly more powerful than a 6000, which makes sense given the PC size.

Re: CPH help please

If the o-ring won't go on despite your best efforts, it's probably too big. You can stretch a small o-ring to bigger size, it's a lot tougher to shrink an o-ring though. Also, CA_99 has a problem with wooden dowel+o ring pumps, but I'll let him cover that. As for leaky reservoir, just wrap some elec...

It doesn't need to, as long as the o-ring(s) does/do.

Re: Secondaries, what's the point?

That commercial is like 5 years old, why is it a meme now? Anyway, I've only ever had tiny (4-5 person) OHK games and soakfests that involved a ready hose, so I never really needed a secondary, but I'm still not a huge fan. I like to be able to move freely, and backpacks/secondaries slung over my sh...

Re: Hands-On: Super Soaker 250

Range tested out my window today, and only tried two nozzles before I accidentally shot into my neighbour's window and had to disappear (how was I supposed to know it was set to fan blast...) Anyway, range on the 3x looks good, I eyeballed it as anywhere from 37'-43' (arbitrary numbers really, but i...

Re: Use of vehicles in water warfare

But in actual battles, I think it's pretty much cheating if you can't shoot the people in the vehicle. It's also dangerous if you are driving a big vehicle. If the vehicle is open like a four wheeler or go cart, andyou can shoot into it, I think that's fine. My problem with that, how easy is it to ...

Re: Hands-On: Super Soaker 250

Even just considering the size of the PCs, you can tell there's a clear difference in power, each one is just a bit bigger than the SS 100's PC and there are two of them.

Re: Hands-On: Super Soaker 250

Okay, I've tested mine (I call him Timmy), though didn't do any range testing (shot it indoors). I'll open with a complaint, the balance on Timmy is pretty bad, he gets back-heavy when fully loaded, the strap sort of makes up for it I guess. Pumping takes no time at all, I think it takes me like 10 ...

Not sure what I need, probably something similar to your format M4, except that I'd mix heavy and medium weapons (I use either in serious games) as well as backyard fun and pistols. However, I'll use your exact list for my armoury for convenience: Current (Not Broken): Pistols: XP215, STE Triple Sho...
