Re: Single stream Nozzle vs duel/spread output efficiency

Nice write up. For me it's not just a matter of soakage, but the increased chance of scoring a hit. The increased spread makes it more difficult to dodge. That being said, issues such as mobility can also make it more difficult to aim and need to be taken into consideration as well.

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

Thank you to everyone who came out. This ended up being a great meet up. I may actually end up writing a war story for this one. It was definitely worth it. I also have some still shots and video footage to share with everyone. Until then, here's a brief write up - We played one long OHS battle from...

Re: HBWW Downsizing!

Most likely the leaks are from the pull valves, cracks, and/or stuff like reservoir O-rings. I may slash the prices down since many of them don't look very repairable but I'll have to test first. I'll have to ask Scott if there's any updates on Soakemore this year lol. Bruh, you didn't hear? Soaker...

Re: HBWW Downsizing!

hi Sam, I hope your foot is healing up. I will definitely buy the Storm 750 from you and I am interested in the CPS. Where are they leaking from?


We need to get you out to a war. Tony and Danny were asking about you. Maybe Soakermore?

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

Hydrate a bunch durring a 6-7 hour car trip? That sounds like a good idea! What could go wrong? Sarcasm aside, thanks for the advice on things, might not be possible this war, but useful knowledge for my next local one. Also I realize one of my friends actually has a Go-Pro, I will try to inquire a...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

I apologize for the double post, but there is some important information I need to put out. First, I am trading Aaron for Tony. Since Aaron and Noah are both new, and both only in 8th grade I feel responsible for them. I cannot take any chance that they wander off, so teams are now going to be the f...

Re: Most important stat for gameplay

Obviously there has to be a balance, but when it comes to most important - I always go for output in Soakfests and range in the others. Field life is usually more important with OHS. I keep going back and forth on mobility, but I think that my playing style gives me a bonus when I use more mobile we...

Re: 2018 Water Warriors/BBT Blasters

A manufacturer like Buzz Bee Toys would be more than happy to create a high-performance rubber-bladder or even more advanced technology-based behemoth adult-sized and styled water blaster if it could sell them. It is up to retailers such as Walmart, Target, etc. to choose to carry items. I stopped ...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

I assume Noah and Aaron are your nephews' friends? How old are they and are they up for fighting all day? This ain't no wussy battle. Anyway I guess I'm okay with the teams. It'd be better if Noah and Aaron were on the same team, but of course that weakens my own team. They are 14 and are in the Ro...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

I have decided that the teams will be Marauder, Duxburian, Area 51, Tony, Noah vs SEAL, the Oncoming Storm, Scott, David, Aaron While I understand your concern, Rob and I do not have any working heavy primaries. We could be up against 2 2000s and a 300 with nothing heavier than a 1200. We will play ...

Two of Tony and Danny's friends are coming. They are ridiculously excited. So we have enough for 5 v 5 even without Chief and Storm's friend. Keep inviting folks! We could have the biggest water war ever if we can get a few more people. Tony's suggestion: Tony, friend, Rob, Danny, Ben vs Scott, Bran...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

Apparently I have a baby shower for my brother and sister in law on the 26th, so the 26th is a no. Sorry Keith. Does everyone want to run 2018 like a league as SEAL suggested? If so, that would mean no team changes. We'd need teams for the entire year based off the knowledge that Keith will not be a...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

Someone call David & Rob and ask them. People need to pay attention to this thread more. It seems like sticking with the 12th may still be the best option, but I will switch to the 26th if everyone says that it works for them, because then Keith can come.

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

Would the weekend of the 26th work for everyone instead? If we are going to change this for Keith we have to have complete buy in. Keith is an important part of our family here, but we still have 9 people confirmed for the 12th without him, and that's pretty good. Sunday is mother's day. I'm not fig...

Re: 2018 Water Warriors/BBT Blasters

This is truly a sad moment in the history of our community... I think manufacturers have wisened up to the fact that the return on investment just isn't there like it is with more expensive (to manufacture) dart blasters. Our local Wal Mart and Target have maybe 2 Super Soakers each... it's really a...

Re: 2018 WWN League Season Opener

Based off speaking with people offline it looks like May 12 -13 is going to be the best possible dates. Please post a reply here if you would be able to attend on that date.

Thank you.
