Re: Nerf Super Soakers for 2019

It's pretty incredible that we are discovering these so early. The Barricuda looks kind of decent. I have never used the soakzooka so I am not sure how the Hydra would be.

Re: A New Twist on CTF - Introducing CTB

I'm such a lightweight that even drinking half a glass of Mike's Hard (IDK how much alcohol it has) means I can hardly stand! I think this would make the game even more amusing. But seriously, no going against what your prescriptions are saying! BTW, any chance we have Soakermore this year? Still t...

Re: Homemade pump action designs?

The nozzle below suggested by TylerK is far and away the best nozzle I have. https://i.imgur.com/UQ0XO45.jpg I purchased mine HERE . The product page shows an image of the 2-inch sweeper nozzle, but this is indeed a 6" nozzle. I know of no other non-cast, non-stepped 6" sweeper nozzles on the marke...

Re: A New Twist on CTF - Introducing CTB

Well, that's it, I'm in. There are plenty of "beer runs," and other games so I don't see why this wouldn't work. Also reminds me of the event that I had theorized called a "smashed soakfest."

Re: Homemade pump action designs?

I wonder if having a larger vinyl tube would increase the range. I imagine it is the small diameter of the intake tube that is limiting your range. Except, wait, that brass piece that it connects to is the same size, so IDK.

Re: CPS 2000 vs 2500 questions

If the problem is the check valve, there seems to be little that you can do. It might be sluggish due to the spring inside losing elasticity, so it would require a greater force to open (more force needed to compress it the same amount). I don't think anyone has tried to replace the springs inside ...

Re: Favorite Firing Valve Design?

I am very interested in seeing what kind of valve the Spyra uses. I am guessing it uses some kind of ball valve, but details still vary from one ball valve to another.

Re: CPS 2000 vs 2500 questions

If you can't fix the issue you can always swap out most of the internals for those of a 2500. They are compatible. The 2000's nozzle is the primary reason its more powerful. I mean, the original PCs were more powerful, but the primary factor is the nozzle. After Hydropocalypse I ended up swapping ou...

Re: Favorite Firing Valve Design?

This is a really good question that I'm not sure I have an answer on. I mean... I am always favor what ever the 2000 uses, but like Sam said, reliability is key. I am also interested in what the Hydrocannon could be capable of.

Re: CPS 2000 vs 2500 questions

The pump is the only place unless you have to open up other parts like the firing valve. Use a good silicon lubricant. When you apply the lubricant make sure you actually place it on the pump skirt/seal. That is the big white section that I repair in this article: https://hydrowar.wordpress.com/2015...

Re: CPS 2000 vs 2500 questions

There definitely is a difference between the 2500 and 2000 nozzles. Take a look at the pictures here: https://hydrowar.wordpress.com/cps-2000/ and https://hydrowar.wordpress.com/cps2500/ It's not just a matter of not being flush or not, but the fact that the 2500 has a second restriction on that flo...

Re: Spyra One

Good comments, marauder. Makes me think that one accessory I would like to see is some way to extend the water capacity. Perhaps a bottle or bag that can be attached to the nozzle. A ziplock bag would work, but seems unlikely to stay closed in all but a casual battle. Might be too late in the desig...

Re: Spyra One

Thought I'd compare the 25 tap shots per tank vs my own tests of some well known soakers - CPS 2000: 19 Spyra One: 25 CPS 1000: 65 XP 150: 88 Gargantua: 104 (burst), 149 (N5), 288 (N1) Pumping isn't really a problem for any of us here, but I realize that we are in the uber minority on that issue.

Re: Spyra One

You can expect a detailed review on Hydrowar as soon as I get mine. Really looking forward to this. The stock offerings have sucked so much lately that it's nice to have something fresh. Not only fresh, but completely different.

I like the auto refill option. That is a game changer in and of itself. Can someone post this on our facebook page? Rike, feel free to advertise there. I can't post the link because I am at work, so someone else will have to.

Re: K9 Kannon

Cool idea. I would like to see how this thing works with waterballoons. It is definitely a lot lighter than our typical launchers. The question is whether or not it will be powerful enough.
