On eBay I bought an XP 150 mk.1 for $0.99. Shipping was around $12, however I got ripped off by the seller, according to the packaging it was actually about $4-5. Either way, great deal on a great gun. Watch out for stuff like that. If people paid as much attention to the good XPs as they did to an...

The mk. 1 still is more powe...

Where do you have these commercials? On tape? I've been looking for old SS commercials on old tapes but I've had no luck, I have sufficient equipment to copy them over to the computer. Do you think you could possibly do that? I'd like to see this commercial.

There appears to be a lot of interest at SSCentral right now, so don't forget them.

What is this "S.O.A.K.E.R.S." Movie I keep hearing about? Should be coming out soon. Hasbro got a different company to make the (new) GI Joe movie a bit earlier than the SS movie. I saw a commercial for the GI Joe movie yesterday, only on DVD I believe. I'm not sure if I'm going to buy it. I'll fin...

With the amount of power necessary to fire an extremely long distance with a piston soaker such as the Californian Water Cannon, I've wondered whether a mechanical force could be used to force the tube up with that much power. A normal plastic piston might not hold up that kind of force so maybe on...

I heard it fires 100 feet. That obviously is a lie. You'll need a hell of a lot more power than you can get from a powersoaker-like gun to do that. The most I'd see it going is 60 feet. The problem with guns like these is that you get one shot (unless it has a backpack), and you can't really hold i...

It all depends on the shape of the bladder. If it is spherical, K-mod it. If it's cylindrical, Collosus that baby. If it's Diaphram (unlikely), then try the spring mod.

Open her up and see what the chamber looks like.

Hasbro made a shitload of cash. It was the actual stores who had trouble selling (at least from what I've heard). That doesn't make sense to me, because the soakers get bought out really early in the season where I live (except for this year, either they keep it well stocked or it's not being bough...

I was looking at the pictures and it seems the key to huge power in a water gun is a shorter pc in a cylinder type. I'll be working on a mod to shorten the pc after seeing this. :goofy: No it's not, the only thing is thickness (and type of rubber, but all PCs essentially are the same). What you are...

Pre-charge system is new system, press button on side of gun and pump (17-20 times until button pops out) and gun is pressurized until you release the pressure. Add water, pump 3 times for maximum pressure and blast. We think it is pretty cool system. This sounds to me to be something that only wou...

Interesting, sadly the only thing I'd think I'd buy would be the AquaPak (I'm poor and need a new backpack). What are the planned prices for these items? Also, some real info about the larger nozzles I'd like to see, when I read "and bigger nozzles" it makes me wonder how much larger. And if it wil...

That idea has been thought of before. It's ok, but even at night it's not very effective. My reccomendation is to use a 6-8 inch long piece of 1/2" ID PVC as a sight if you need one. You won't need anything too expensive or fancy for a Super Soaker.

Are there any examples of when the Nerf fandom changed some of Hasbro's Nerf lineup designs? Modding is so prevalent in Nerf that many guns are designed to be hard to open or mod. Lanard buys old, generally recommended Nerf guns to base their designs off of. The boxes of Nerf guns say only use ammo...
