Doom do you mean people havn't been shaping the inside of the nozzle? I assumed it would just be common sense But good pickup.

I mean if your going to make a homemade its just a bit of silicon glue or water resistant putty and it'll be much better than a flat nozzles.

Dream soaker?

Well it would be very big and make people very wet I imagine something that looks a bit like the CPS2000 but with a bigger tank and a bigger PC.

Well, I would like a base defence that would be better than the armordillo or stream machines, it would lhave a base like this:

and probably twin PCs the size of the CPS2000 mk2s, With a seperate sphereical(sp?) PC with a "secret strike function".

Or you could have just looked at the URL of the image and figured everything out from there. :P

I used to make rubber band guns from K'Nex. I think I once made a nearly semi-auto gun, given you rotate the barrel. Fun stuff.

The nozzle idea is good, but I tihnk it should look more like this.



The nozzles on the 4100 are like this. I drilled Dux's 4X on his 4100 so it didn't have that straight part in the front, and the shot goes nowhere. Kind of like a huge power shot instead of a nice steady stream.

Edit: Spelling

I see what you're saying. Good idea. I suppose I'll be able to try this out eventually. The CPS 4100's nozzle is like this? How do you know?

I have a 4100 and I just noticed I guess. It was really aperent when I drilled Dux's 4100. You could see that the nozzle just smooshed inward.

Edit: I took a look at the 4100 nozzle selector by taking it off. You can see easily from the back view of how it moves inward and then straight at the end. I'll get a pic and post it.

My dream soaker would probably be something with the power of the CPS2000, but the size of a 2100 with the 2500's nozzle selector and a backpack res. Can't think of a name for that, except the CPS2000-X.

In case anyone noticed I've been missing for over a month, our ISP screwed themselves over and we lost our connection for ages. Anyhow, I'm Back.

My dream soaker wouldn't be some hybrid of the 4100/2000 or whatever. Mine would just be the legendary CPS 2500

My dream soaker:

Name: CPS 5000

Featuring:
3 Large, interchangable tanks(kinda like the triple shot)
Tracked pump
Handle
Strong Strap
1x,5x,10x,20x, and 40x Nozzles
CPS Technology(of course )

I think that's about all I would want in a soaker.

My dream soaker would (simple version) be extremely high air pressure (around 140 PSI) backpack soaker, and a rediculously large nozzle. I will mount my miniature air compressor to it, running off 10 Sub-C cells.

I already did the 'extremely high pressure' (120 PSI)part last year, but I don't have a valve that can handle the pressure & open/close quickly enough. Ball valves don't cut it...

For 120 PSI I used a full-metal garden hose nozzle, but it doesn't allow enough water through. I need a good nozzle that has a large cross section.

The nozzle I used allowed decent kickback, but I want more... any idea's that don't cost a fortune (butterfly valves are insanely expensive...)?

I've made spring-loaded ball valves many times before (for a Nerf homemade). You might want to check that out if you're looking for a faster opening time. On a few, rubber bands were used if you're looking for a simpler method. B)

Spring-loaded ball valves might be worth some investigation now that I think of it...

Cool

:Hey, that's funny.: XXCPS 777: A gun similar in design to the XXP 275 but with CPS tech,A second reservoir, bigger reservoirs, An Extra Nozzle, A firing system similar in design to the flash flood (1-3 pumps only needed), Shotgun style nozzles, Quick fill Device, I would want it to be a little longer to add to the intimidation factor, and finally, a laser scope to top it all off.
Oh and keep the strap.
