Another step backward by Hasbro. :cool:

Who would want to make a step forward? We just want to make steps further and further back, until we're selling squirt pistols for $30 under the Super Soaker brand name, right? By then, people will have forgotten that CPS, Air Pressure, and Pressurized Reservior technology ever existed, with the exception of CPS 2000's hitting $5000 on eBay. :p The Super Soaker brand will be dead by 2015, with BB buying it out, unless some changes are made or BB messes up (like not making more Hydro Power guns).

I really can't expect Hasbro to make any progress anymore. The only hope is to buy up all the Hasbro stock shares and make Super Soaker blasters that would be truly revolutionary. A group of 50 people complaining won't change anything, unless the company is called Buzz Bee Toys. :blazer:

A group of 100 complaining wouldn't change anything either, like the email campaign and my attempted boycott. Seriously though, all this is a perfect repeat of things that have been said in the past. Please read old topics. Every word is De-ja-vu for me, all this has already been discussed, ranted, and flamed long ago, maybe not with the 2006 guns obviously, but with Hasbro in general.

We know what to expect. We also know the alternatives if you so choose to leap up and grab a piece of future yourself. I've only been doing that for the past 2 years, and know exactly what to expect in powerful guns every time. The complaining has been throughly exhausted and is now repetitive. Even I now have to complain about the complaining, and that is one of the rarest things you'll ever see. Duxburian complaining about stock soaker/Hasbro bashing? Unheard of...

That is because there are no 2006 CPS soakers. Read the above posts.

The odds of that happening are less than 1%, and even if it did it would do no good. By then I would have forgotten bout soaking. :soakon2:

Hey! I've got my kids to think of! :goofy: Something is gonna happen to Super Soaker, and while my wild idea may not be it, there will be some changes. Either we will get more powerful soakers, or Super Soaker will lose some of its market share, resulting in either it making more powerful soakers because of it, or it going on a further downward trend.

Heh, yeah. Will you put pics of the 2006 Flash Flood in the 2006 CPS directory?

Yup, once I get around to processing those images.

As for the Overload review, apart from the really bad mistake when stating the pressurization system :goofy:, I'm hoping to have it online by Thursday evening. If not, it won't make it up until next week due to other obligations. However, things currently look good for a Thursday posting.

Cool! Nice review. I'm still curious as to the connection of the backback. Would it be easy to mod it? Or difficult?

To see a close-up of the connection, see http://www.isoaker.com/Armoury....024.jpg

Ease of adapting it to another blaster all depends on one's skill level. If you can figure a way to use one of the new Max Infusion caps, you wouldn't even need to change the adapter part.

Willkommen!!! Sadly, that's pretty much all the German I know.

No video, yet, but there is a review on it:

One day I hope to have pictures of the streams firing, too.

Wow... online English-German/German-English translators are horrible. I'll see what I can do, though.

Could you repeat this in german? I am fluent, so we might get faster at it this way. Nebenbei, anstatt einer Max Infusion Soaker, wuerde ich eher ein Soakermodel von den 90er Jahren empfehlen. ebay.de hat machmal ziehmlich coole Dinge. :;):

I just got an overload today and man that is the weirdest gun ever. The small nozzle shoots like a spray nozzle(at least on mine). It shoots like a small typhoon. Another thing is though it is Air preasure, The whole PC if filled and it has no dropoff. Very weird indeed. ???
AXE BOMB!!!
