Yeah, thanks, I like that line of blasters. I was happy to get it. What I really wanted was a 105, but I'll just have to wait I guess.

The XP105 is good, too, but I still consider the XP110 better simply since it has a better reservoir design (detachable reservoirs, though sometimes easier to fill, have problems with attaching securely, not to mention more wear on the threading).

Speaking of the XP 105, I just got one and it is now my favourite xp in my armoury over my XXP 175. While both blasters are a pain to refill because of their reservoir designs, I like better the 105 for it's light weight when loaded and it's ridiculous amount of pumps to pressurize (thanks to the separate pressure chambers). Also, the riot blast when you twist off the nozzle is interesting to watch.

Oh and I also got a XP 215. This tiny thing shoots almost as far as the 105! :laugh: Now I can soak anywhere in the world. yay!

My guns are in, except the XXP 275 and the 2100s. The XP 150 is my new favorite XP gun. This thing has some serious power for a gun of its era. You have to pump it, what, like 5 times? And after firing for like 3 seconds, you go to pump it, but can't get more than 2 pumps in. So you fire for another 3 seconds, try to pump, and it's already like full? This gun was extremely well designed, with an interesting clear pump shaft. The only real faults I have found are the small reservoir size and annoyance of having to twist it in and out. I'd also like more range, but it has enough to challenge anything that isn't modded.

You get that one on ebay? I was watching that, but didn't want to make my mom mad. One gun, becomes two, now I'm going for a third, and I'm not supposed to be getting any as it is.

I just acquired... will be acquiring; It's in the mail on it's way from britain, a second CPS 2000, with box, from Aqua_Flash. I traded one of my soakers to him for it, and it was a deal that I think will be mutually beneficial. It has a small leak out of the nozzle, however one 2000 with a small leak is worth more than what I traded for it.. (to me at least- aqua_flash is happy with his end).

Also, a second Speedloader 1000, and a 12k. Also, a CPS 3200!!!

My 150 came from Cobralex297. I was, however, watching that Ebay 150, and forgot about it. I am not really supposed to be buying more guns either, but my parents are thrilled that my first listing on Ebay [a 2700] sold for $56. They are more supportive of building up an inventory now. :laugh:

Wow, that's like winning my whole arsenal in one shot. The last soaker that I bought was a SS300 on eBay for $29. Best and only deal I ever got on eBay. It brought the number of guns in my armory to an ever-so-great 5.

Thank god you won those duxburian... thank god. I was considering making a bid because BOTH of those are AMAZING deals, but I'm super short on cash with the two big purchases that I'm making right now, an SS 300 for 45 and two, NIB Xp 110s for 20.00, so I can't really do much more financially.

I'm much happier that you got those after I let them go, than someone else that would have most likely not treated them as well.

Good buy.

More!

CPS 3000 for $40 plus $15 something shipping.

CPS 12K [MK2 Heavy 80] for $22.50 plus something shipping.

Nerf Crossbow [modded] for $40 plus about $10 shipping.

Nerf Maximizer [stock] for $28.50 plus $9.50 shipping.

The cash is burning on a funeral pyre, but I think these guns are worth every cent. Most CPS 2000's sell for higher than all this combined and I'd much rather have all this combined than one 2000. And speaking of the 2000, a broken one is coming in and a modded AT3K [nerf gun], stock 1500, and stock XP 70 are going out. Very busy this "off-season" is. :laugh:

Who'd you end up getting a CPS12K from? That's not a common soaker that'd be up for auction and/or sale. Nice acquisitions, though!

Some random person who has made several 12K's. I don't think they are on the forums, otherwise they would have known what a mark is. After all, knowledge of marks is essential for modding, especially freshly up-to-date knowledge cough cough. Some certain list still has only 2 marks listed for the 1200, when we know now that there are 4. The 1200 discoveries actually verify that the 2100 marks are in correct order as well.

This late November going into December is surprisingly quite busy for me. I have coming very soon:

-SS 300 (Looks in nice condition and works for a good price, trigger needs some nuts and bolts to make me able to use it properly, but hey I aim to use it in battle anyway, and its good to be able to have an SS 300 again)

-NIB Splashzooka (Once again another item kept in the storage stash)

I just recently acquired an XP95 which is one older soaker I've been wanting to get for awhile. As well, I got my hands on a few other soakers, namely a Speed Loader 1000, an X-Stream APS Tank Jr. and a Discovery Kids Hydro Storm Soaker which were sent to me from a generous benefactor. Looks like I've have a few soakers to review over the upcoming holidays (despite the fact that I'll be spending most of my days at work, anyhow :goofy: ).

Soak on!

I'm still piling them up:

XP 150 - this is now my 3rd one of those

CPS 1200 - this is now my 4th one of those

XP 75 - A first and very hard to find soaker. I've only tested it once so far but I already think it's amazing!

If you very much enjoy the 75, I could sell you one at whatever price you acquired yours at, I'm happy to unload it. Need cash...
And congratz on the new soakers.

Today received two new SC Power Pak's. Its good to have the Power Pak back again. Still as good and destructive as I remember it.

The version I got is different from the one on iSoaker, it is the European version with different colouring and a slight difference in how the connection between the gun and the backpack are.

Picture here.
