At least they haven't gotten rid of the Flash Flood.
... yet.

Actually, I think the arctic blast is the '07 FF. Design is very simular.

I kinda like the design of the Arctic Blast. It's...edgy, for lack of better term. However, the FF is definitely more comfortable to hold (the grip is more ergonomic).

Yeah, FF has the nicer grip and the PC is aligned directly to the nozzle, providing more direct flow for the large nozzle. Hopefully the Arctic Blast has a better small stream, as the FF's wasn't very good. One thing pretty much for sure is that the Arctic Blast will hold more water.

What if the pump on the Hydroblitz was that small nob (like on the xp 15 and ss 10), it's unlikely, but otherwise, I assume the nob is for a qfd.
I'm also pretty excited about the secret strike for some odd reason.

The SuperSoaker.com website was updated!
FYI Zoccoz, the tank is 101 oz.
But, what is this thing?

It looks like a lever or something...

I think it's purely cosmetic. Doesn't look like it moves.

Doesn't even look cosmetic. It might actually be the tube for the water moving from the PC to the nozzle. The horizontal part is centered into the PC section; the vertical part goes to the nozzle.

If that was actually a lever, it would be way too inaccessible and would lack all ergonomics.

The MD6K has random tubes floating aroung the outside, but they are cosmetic. This could be the same thing. Only time will tell.

I don't think that anyone has considered this, but maybe it is a switch to start an electronic pump :oo:
Just a thought anyways

I'd say if there's a switch, it would be the thing right under the HY in HYDRO.
