I heard that the CPS1500 has more water and shoots the same as the 1000.

Somewhere else I heard the 1500 only shoots 33 feet

Definately go for it! The CPS 1500 shoots just under 50ft, not 33. The 1500 is one of the best [manufactured] soakers ever made.

Definately exchange. The 1500 is great.

BTW, who is giving you the option

BTW, there is something else newly discovered that you can do with a CPS 1000. Article and pics will appear on SM v2.

Exchange anyway though.

Holy crap YES!!! The 1500 outclasses the 1000 in nearly every aspect!

Yup, it certainly does. I say go for it, and if you don't like it you can always Ebay it, considering it usually fetches a much better price than the 1000.
By the way, check out the Rules for my newly invented SoakFest-esque game in the Draft Soaker Rules thread. Input on all the games there is desired. So head on over and ctritique the rules as much as possible!

If you hadn't noticed the poll above for some reason, all of us have said yes. GO GET IT!

Only a idiot or a collector would not exchange a 1000 for a 1500/1700.

Well, there still a few reasons why one could want the 1000 instead. If they had multiple 1500s already, if they want the 1000 pc instead of 1500 pc for an integration mod, or if they prefer smaller guns.

Hmm...beware though, the person who is offering it might be offering one of those cheap imitaion soakers...

He's right they could take a super shooter cps 2000 (the fake) put a cps 1000 sticker on it and you would not know the difference.

Can you really tell if a fake 1000 has the 1000 sticker on?

Open up the gun. The best way to tell is the internals. I don't have a fake to compare to, but I bet there's a difference.

Well, I don't have a fake either. Isin't the outside slightly different too?

I've tested 7 CPS 1500/1700s and they all shot well over 33 feet. According to my tests it's the second furthest shooting Super Soaker ever. I love that gun.

I don't see why anyone would want the 1000's firing chamber over the 1500s! First off, the 1500 has more range, and second of all, the 1500's firing chamber holds 9 more ounces of water (30 to 21).

Well if you're integration modding and already have a CPS 1521 for example, you might want a 1021 instead of another 1521. And neither would hold more water if only the bladder is switched, which is done most of the time.
