Hi, I was wondering where I can find Water Warriors guns. I'm looking for the Blazer and the Hydra Pak. I'm aware of all the pro's and con's of these guns already. I noticed iSoaker has both of those guns, and was wondering where I could find them myself, having not seen any in stores all of last year. I live in the heart of Silicon Valley, near San Jose, so it's not like there aren't many stores around. Thanks for your help! :blazer:

Target carried them last year, but I can't really comment about this year since there are no guns in the Northeast right now. It's mid-winter and there was snow on the ground yesterday. If you have stable year-round weather, which I know parts of CA have, then Target should still have WW guns over there.

It's ranging from 65-70+ in the midday here, and gets cold (35-40) at night. Target was where I bought my CPS 4100 (Max-D trigger, little did I know) and there were only a couple Soakertag Elite guns there at the time. I guess I'll wait. At least I know where to look, though. :)

EDIT: Cold for me, at least. But probably not for users up north.

Was your CPS 4100 a re-release or an overstock? Mark I 4100s have good, strong triggers, Mark II and any 4100s in soakertag boxes have the Max-D triggers.

Well, it was the time I covinced my parents to allow me to buy soakers. The 4100's with soakertag boxes were $20 a piece, and I bought 4. Mine broke second, after 2 uses, My brother's broke 1st, after 1 use, my other brother's broke 3rd, after 3 months, and my sister seems to have gotten lucky, because hers hasn't broken yet.

Down here in South Carolina I did not know that water warriors or BBT even existed until I started reading Isoaker and SScentral Forums.That is weird because everybody here is very familar with BBT products when I have not seen one in all the years I have been In SC.My friends little brother who is 5 did get a stupid gun that is five guns put together (only two parts remain).Maybe this could help you people here on Isoaker figure out something about BBT(no wonder it is such a small company).Nomadder what I am Staying with Super Soaker.I do not have one WW gun and I do not plan to be getting any. :ghostface: :blazer: :ghostface: :ghostface: :ghostface:

In case you do not know, the guns BB is making this year are superior to the ones Super Soaker is making. Hasbro is depending on guys like you to buy their products because Super Soaker is associated with powerful water blasters. So, they can sell wimpy products under the Super Soaker name and get lots of money. BB is composed of people who used to work for the Super Soaker brand, who then started their own company with the knowlegde of the Super Soaker secrets, during the total Hasbro shift of the company (Hasbro already owned Super Soaker in 1994, but took over totally around 2002). In case you have not noticed, BB make products based on our suggestions as well. If I were you, I would investigate all the BB products before making such a proclamation.

The retail price for the Hydra Pak is $20. That price is $10 more.

If anyone is interested in getting Water Warriors Yellow Jackets or Stingers, I'll be more than happy to buy them for you and ship them to you if you want, then you can pay up.

That's you, Soaker Master. I agree that the first four guns are named after bugs, but there are many other members who like them. I agree, read my topic about the WW Yellow Jacket.

I honestly couldn't care less what a gun looks like, as long as it preforms well. I would carry around a bright pink, ugly soaker if it shot 80ft.

This is a case study of what I have been ranting about when I say people follow brands and stock soakers near religiously and don't see the potential of the alternatives. Like a homemade that costs less, shoots more, further, and with more power, than a stock gun like a Flash Flood, for example.

Looks and names should be the last things on your mind when buying a soaker, because those can be changed... The stats are what are really important, IMHO.

I was just about to post exactly what you said, but you did first. :D I personally couldn't care less about the name and color. The only reason I might care about color is if I was trying to camoflauge myself, which I have never needed. And I I particularly didn't care for a color on one of my guns, I can always just paint it.

As soon as the new WW guns are released, I'll be heading down to my local Toys Rn't Us or Target to get a blazer, and maybe something else. :blazer: I am looking forward to the WW guns. :soakon2:

Sorry in advance about the double post.

I'm still looking for a Blazer and a Hydra Pak. So, I called Toys Rn't Us, and they said they only had the firefly and the cricket, and weren't getting any other WW guns. What other places have them? I don't think my Target has them (though I could always check). Where did you (iSoaker or someone else) get them?
