That would be a Super Soaker 300! That thing's older than I am (made in 1993)! That thing is supposed to be one of the air pressure greats, being known for the ability to match most small to mid sized CPS weapons (but then breaks straight after)!

1:16 looks like a Super Soaker MDS (also 1993 and older than me!). That thing was basically an old-fashioned version of the sneak attack (except it had a single nozzle which could swivel left and right).

Listen from 2:58 onwards. Super Soaker only has a single shot? WHAT THE HELL IS HE TALKING ABOUT!!!!

That SINGLE shot can last over 10 seconds (more if it's a pressurised backpack)!!! Why can't he tap shots like everyone else!

"It hits harder and faster" have they ever seen a CPS 2000??? (maybe not actually, if the SS300 and SSMDS are anything to go by, and they are actually talking to us from 1993!).

Anyway, I'd love to see them fight against my XP70 or MI FF (or even my homemade, although that technically isn't a super soaker) away from the pool (which to be honest is where very few serious water fights are held). You may have more range, BUT I HAVE MORE WATER!!!
(unless they converted it with the stream machine boat buddy, and a backpack reservoir)

Also, a piston water gun has a range based on the strength of the user. How many people could REALLY fire that thing 70 feet repeatedly, if at all???

AND they have an advert like that, but they themselves sell super soaker copy, water guns too!!!

(Sorry, you can probably tell I'm not a huge fan of 'one shot wonder' soakers )

EDIT: I do like the drain gun though!.

Advertisements, people. That thing must be old though, if they managed to get an SS300 for it in a pathetic attempt to make their product come off as superior to SS.

But like what we've seen from the SS 2011 line so far, nothing new here, haha.

Stream machines are actually really good- I, a scrawny 13 year old, can easily push 50 feet with one.

In that case it's on par with the CPS 2000 in terms of range, which I will admit is pretty good for a piston blaster. However, after a long water fight, the same range may be hard to match.

I suppose they'd be quite useful if converted to backpack fed pump action blasters (with parts of that boat buddy attachment thing). Without this though, I maintain that such weapons are of little use in a true water warfare situation (unless a water bucket is transported around the playing field).

True. If you managed to attach a sling and but a block in the nozzle, it would make a food backup.

All fine with me Just came off from the Super Soaker theme quite much...

I started studying two moths ago, going to become a polymer-engineerer In the end I will build up my OWN watergun from liquid plastics... And this one will then just have all it should

What brought me back here was more or less the fact that I was able to pick up a CPS 2000 Mk1 in great shape and working order for a very reasonable price and also a CPS 3200 for a great deal

O well, I am missing the time when I was so really into Super Soaker But time moves on... although it will always stay a part of me Just the focus is somewhere else than on SS at the moment^^
