Smile Beast find in an old toystore

In the downtown part of my town, there's this old toystore. I went in to check if they had any SSs.

Well, I found an SC Power Pak, which is a pistol with a backpack with a QFD. And it was NIB!!!

After testing, it works great, and later I'll post the box and gun.

It was a great addition to my armoury

Nice find. I have a PowerPak, but no QFD. I was able to fire it once by jamming the fill in an outside tap, but got very wet doing so.

Ya, sadly if you don't have a QFD it doesn't work really. The whole thing is based on it because it's all PC.

Juch - Damn, thats the kind of find any soaker enthusiast dreams about, congrats!

Cantab - I have some spare QFDs if you want to buy one sometime PM me, I'll give a fair price.

Course the reason I'd sell them is because I dont believe in QFD dependent guns at all. I'm trying to ditch my splashzookas as well for that reason. I think the Devastator is a much better version of the SC Powerpak.

Thanks, VAJMH!

Ya, I don't really like QFD-depended guns either because if you lose the QFD, you're at a lost. Or if the QFD breaks for that matter as well.

Did I mention that I got the gun for 20 bucks! Some on Ebay cost over 100!

It seems that the solutions to lack of QFD's are still not widely known.

http://www.sscentral.org/homemade/vhs.html

Me and my friend have had success just by attaching the nozzle to the hose so a homemade QFD probably isn't even necessary.

I think the Super Charger issue for me boils down to, well, I guess it's odd to say this, but almost a psychological fulfillment issue. When I test fired my splashzookas, in addition to getting a good bit of spray off the QFD connection, I just didnt feel it. Sure the water shot out, but what did I have to do with that event?

When you actually pump the gun to full power and then squeeze the trigger, there's a feeling of achievement there, of really being kind of in synch with these magnificent machines. Just hooking them to a hose doesnt have the same appeal to me.

I've seen the QFD fix, but being as I only needed one to test my splashzookas and now have about four, yeah, at least 2 of those things are getting sold.

I think now that the original (and good working) QFDs are rare, connecting to hose or making your QFD is the best solution, but even still I personally think its easier just to have the ones from SS.

I'm sure homemade and others still are good, but I personally like the SS-made ones.

I'm aware of the VHS, but I live in the UK - it isn't easy for me to get those PVC parts.

I have a hosepipe and some bits around, so I might be able to make something work. Just haven't got round to it, and it's winter now anyway.
