I was browsing the web when I came across this. You'll have to scroll down to see it.

Has anyone seen it? It looks like a mini MXL! Its got the tank of a MXL (except it has a smaller tank and no cap), the handle looks similar to the one on the MXL. It also has six nozzle settings, and the tube yellow and silver thing looks like the one the MXL has.

EDIT: Crap, I did it in the wrong section! Sorry, could someone move it to the right one? Sorry, again.

Yeh , it looks quite weird though. I wouldn't say it looks that much like a MXL though.???

No, I mean that it has the features of a Monster XL.

I've seen that before. I remember DA posted it. It looks to be nothing more than a cheap rip-off soaker. Probably is either pump-action or pressurized-reservoir. There rarely are any good fakes.

At the beginning of summer I saw a bunch of these for cheap. In my opinion it resembles nothing like a monster xl. Looks like a cps 1000/1200 cross to me.

The label, tank and nozzle look a bit like the Monster XL's, though. But I don't think it really looks anything like a MXL either.

it's just some crappy chinese company ripping off super soaker to make people think they're buying a super soaker.
basically instead of building a reputation(which would probably be impossible for a chinese knockoff company anyways), they take advantage of super soaker's reputation. i mean look, they even ripped off the decals!

edit: by "ripped off" i mean they copied them, not that they tore the stickers off the gun. that just occured to me... you know what i meant!
