After comparing my SC 600 to Exodus' SC 500, I'd have to say that the SC 500 is a better soaker. It feels more comfortable to hold, and the smaller size just has a much better feel to it. It has a bit more output than the SC 600 does and the range is about the same. Sure, it may have less shot time...

hmm, good point. can't think of any other way to pop a balloon from afar, any ideas? Do what I did, and attatch a nail to a pendulum. When the enemy triggers a tripwire, the nail swings down and pops it, then it showers on them automatically. That way you don't have to be sitting there waiting for ...

Wait a minute...... Since when was there more than one version of the CPS 2100? And what's the difference between them? ???

The opposing team sounds very formidable, so you will likely need to co-ordinate your team well. If you appear weak to the enemy, then you will likely trick them into doing something stupid. Ambush them, set up snipers, and send barrage after barrage of water balloons at them. But remember, one sli...

It's still inferior, and I like the general feel of the CPS2100 (I don't mean that you should, just saying that I do). How is the CPS 1200 inferior? It's actually quite similar in performance to the 2100. The only real reason that I choose the 1200 over the 2100 is because it's more convenient to u...

30 US dollars for anything larger than a CPS 1000/1200/2100 is a bargain. ???

Hmm, that's odd, I've never used any epoxy in any of the things I have that are capable of being a portable QFD! I only have a roll of the 5 min epoxy, and yet my 2700 still is lying in a box unassembled. I didn't try it at all because I was afraid it wouldn't be strong enough. Doom, if you don't u...

Of course, the 1200 does have a strap and greater water capacity, but it has inferior range and output. :cool: Actually, the CPS 1200 has great range. I've tested a yellow (2000 model) and silver/grey (2001 model) side by side and they both had about 10 or 11 metres of range, and that's only slight...

I voted for the CPS 1200. The advantages that it has over the 2100 (in my opinion) are: 1. Longer shot time 2. Shoulder Strap 3. Larger PC 4. Larger reservoir 5. Easier to pump The advantages that the 2100 has over the 1200 include: 1. Greater output 2. It's slightly lighter 3. It's better balanced...

As soon as we got to them they went inside. Yup, that sounds like the typical coward type "n00b" that is all talk. They say that they'll take you on, but when you get there they just go inside and don't come out again. Some will say, "If you shoot me, you'll wet the carpet! My dad will get angry!" ...

Sounds like a pretty good trap. I would use mutiple balloons (kind of like a k-mod :p). it would then feel like the victim was being hit by a 5x CPS blast.

5 minute epoxy works great for me. I use it to hold my portable QFD together. It holds the pressure nicely, and it takes a lot of air pressure to fill my Splashzooka!

30 bucks for a 2700? That's a great price! When they were in stores here, they were $80 AU (approximately $56 US) and I would consider that a reasonable price.

Forceuser, I know how you feel. My family lived in Germany for three years. When the CPS 1700 finally got over there, it was ~$40. Yikes! What's wrong with that price? I'd pay 40 bucks US (57 Australian dollars here) for a CPS 1700 anyday. In fact, I'd buy two or three once I got the money if I fou...

why pay so much for just a cps 2000 mk1 in the box? you have to take it out if you want to use it. Soakers are always better to buy if they are new in box. That way, you know that it's brand new, and you know that there won't be damage to it. If it's second hand, you don't know how it was treated b...
