To update once again my latest soaker would be as of today a blazer. Which is my first ever water warriors gun.

Not a 'major' purchase, but I picked up 4 more Water Warrior Kwik Grips for a BBQ I attended today. Sure, the little Kwik Grips are similar in function to older-style squirt pistols, but they're cute and do hold a decent amount of water. Sadly, one in the pack of four tended to dribble and didn't fire as well (likely in part due to the poor seal around the trigger/pump). However, I still find 'em great for annoying people.

i got my hands on a 2006 vaporizer and a helix. At first i was really disapointed in the helix because it was always to wide of a stream but then i figuerd out how to adjust it. i never knew u could adjust it and here i thought i knew everything about soakers lol. :laugh:

I just got my newest gun an hour ago! A well used and worn, but still perfectly functioning.....CPS 2500! :laugh: I don't particularly care that the case is sun-faded, or that stickers are missing, or that dirt and sand is in the casing, reservoir, and nozzles. I bought this gun specifically for use. I will have to reinforce the trigger, clean out the nozzle selector, and repair or multi-nozzle mod the damaged 5x. Other than that, I have another good gun!

i got about an hour ago the sharper image flash flood with the back pack. This thing is pretty sweet looking. i really don't plan to use it since i already have 2 other flash floods. but it is a very awsome addition to any collection. it is the only way to get a back pack without buying an overload that i know of , well ecept ebay of couse.

For those who have never seen this piston-type SS that was talked about earlier in this post: the big(?) bottle blaster, this one is a eBay BIN but he wants too much($18.99+$5.75 shipping, they're $8.00 at Dollar General):

Huh! Looks off-brand. Anyways, my latest- a Monster X 2002 Brand New in Box. Many of you already know, but I'm still very excited about it.

So, you finally got to shoot it?

I got the flash flood recently, and a CPS 2100 was obtained later but is currently under repair. (should be fixed today) I'm also getting a Defender and a Vaporizer and maybe a Liquidator.
Posted: Thu Aug 03, 2006 12:11 am
I'm guessing a typo, isn't vaporizer the euro name for the liquidator? Also, finally grab the Sharper Image Flash Flood. Little bit of an improvement over the '05, the triggers seem to be sturdier(time will tell) and of course it comes with the 100 oz aquapack. So, a devestator on steriods now that the main nozzle has been bored with a 1/8" drill bit(5x) and the debris screen has been removed. It appears in my section of the gallery under "many modded soakers"(if you didn't know). Later, Brad

The latest recieved is my Blazer, but I bought a flash flood and payed for it 3 days ago, I sure hope it arrives tomorrow.

I just got an Argon at K-Mart. They had recently taken down the soakers and replaced them with-- SCHOOL SUPPLIES! I really wanted an Argon and I searched for almost 10 minutes, when my eye caught a Water Weapons Waveblast (ZOCCOZ did a review on it). I took a step back to see if there was anything else up there, and sure enough, there was a Lightning and more Waveblasters. From my new viewpoint, I could see the back end of an Argon poking out from behind a Cabbage Patch Kids box. I couldn't reach it, so I ended up having to grab a price tag hook that was just lying around (the little thing that sticks out of the wall and holds the price tag and product) and grab it with that.
An epic tale, is it not?
Anyways, I like it. You can just keep pumping and easily keep up pressure. Good range, nice stream. Good power.
@dragonclass: Was that question for me?
Yeah, I got to shoot it, and I love it. I think my favorite nozzle is the Power Burst (the square-ish one), because it has the output of the 5x but more encumbrance.
There are definitely some changes between the original version and the 2002 version, from what I've read. Less pumps, for one (less than 20). I should probably test range. I will eventually.

My latest soakers are the majority of the Water Warriors 2007 line (well, except for the Water Warriors Barracuda)!
Currently, working on a review for the WW Tiger Shark, but I figure most here already know that.

My latest soakers would be a two-pack of WW Black Widows. They have OK range, but an excellent stream for their size. Problem is, they chew through water like crazy!
My latest mod was a completely new nozzle on an XP220. The original was clogged with something huge, so I just bored it out, got the end of a pen, bored through it, and wrapped it in some electrical tape, and jammed it in the nozzle. It has much greater output (3x) and excellent range (35ft). This one eats up water to!

I got an arctic blast. It's very similar to the FF, but with a tin bit less power and capacity. Before that I got a CPS 1200 which I k-modded with 20 balloons. It shoots 50 ft. :;):

I got my APH working (finally). It has good range on all the nozzles, but takes 60 pumps to build up good pressures. I just need to improve the pump and get a reservoir.
I'm hoping to get a new soaker soon, or build another homemade.

Well, today there is a flea market at my local library, and a couple weeks ago, my brother went up there and a lady said that she was seling some of her kid's super soakers. I don't know what I'll find, but if its something good I'll post about it here.

P.S. There was nothing there but a Max-D 3000 with a broken pump handle and someone bought it.
