Re: A chart showing pump diameter vs. force

That's pretty awesome. Unfortunately those numbers don't mean a whole lot all by themselves. Does any body know how much pressure is typically built up in a soaker? Not really sure how many pounds of force is considered a lot either. I'm assuming anything over 40 lbs (going by the numbers in red)? I...

Re: APH Design Questions

^Yes, and that coupled with a larger nozzle (3X maybe?) that I drilled out certainly was an improvement over the stock gun. But my point was that larger chambers don't necessarily equal more power. So you don't need massive water tower-sized PCs on your homemade, unless you really want the extra sho...

Re: APH Design Questions

That's weird. Pretty much any Lowes or Home Depot that I know of sells up to 6" pipe. But I've made a gun like this with 3" chambers before, and it was the most unwieldy water gun I've ever used. You definitely want to make the blaster as compact as you can. A good nozzle should still give you bette...

Re: Nerf Super Soakers for 2019

For what it's worth, the Soakzooka did actually achieve about 40 feet with 6X output according to isoaker. Ironically, that actually makes it more powerful than the Splashzooka (which I proclaimed to be the far superior 'zook), even if the original is obviously more practical. But piston guns just o...

Re: A New Twist on CTF - Introducing CTB

Sounds psychological to me. I've never known anyone to get trashed that fast. Unless it's some kind of reaction to the drugs or something, in which case I definitely would stay away from booze at all costs. I also used to be on a medication that wasn't supposed to be mixed with alcohol. Wasn't fun. ...

Re: Interesting firing valve used in air cannon, might be worth investigating

The main problem would be that the pilot volume needs to be refilled with air after each trigger pull. If you use tap shots I imagine this will exhaust your air supply too quickly. Perhaps you could use a dual-shaft pump; one that pumps water into the chamber as normal, and another smaller one that...

A New Twist on CTF - Introducing CTB

Everybody knows CTF. Capture the enemy flag(s) to win the game. But capturing flags is so old-school. In the spirit of college season starting up, I present to you... Capture The Beer! Number of players: No less than 4v4, but higher numbers such as 6v6 are preferred. Field: The battlefield should be...

Re: HOG

There's a lot to be addressed. First of all, I do feel bad about those who really wanted to come, but as I've said this war wouldn't be what it was meant to be with only a small handful of members. Neither Keith nor myself are interested in hosting a scaled-down version of this event either. I don't...

The shuttling is more or less so that the battlefield location stays secret. The whole point of this war is to experience going into a battlefield blind with no idea of what to expect. We think this will make for a more intense and exciting experience, and others are welcome to host the same kind of...

Well most of the recent battles have been more hardcore/competitive, and we haven't bothered with changing up classes. If I remember right, the last time we had a large war in a more "traditional" format (i.e. multiple short rounds per day) was Soakemore '16; over two years ago. Definitely not compl...

We haven't used blaster classes in quite some time, but then again we haven't had nearly as many big wars recently either.

marauder: I just checked the old Duelfest thread and you didn't do 275 vs. 150, but you did do 250 vs. 150, and the 150 lost 4 to 11. Then the 275 narrowly beat the 250 4 to 3, and in turn was beaten by the Gorgon 3 to 1. Since the Gorgon is basically on par with the best medium guns, I'd suggest mo...
