I've seen lots of opinions scattered throughout some topics (mainly [url='http://forums.sscentral.org/2005_soaker_purchases-t2933.html']here[/url] ). But I thought it might be a good idea to create a topic for it, considering it's controversial.

I had a water war this year and I thought I would use the flash flood more but I used the aquapack dev much more because it was light with a fairly good sized capacity.But hay its just my opinion, heck most people say that the dev only shoots 30 feet but I measured 40 feet (I used a tape measure) that is why I used it more along with the shot time.

Some might say that the Aquapack is weak for it size, though. Also it doesn't really make that much sense for a backpack blaster with a 100 oz (I think) resevior to only fire on a 3x nozzle. A gun that can hold that much water should have multiple nozzles, a 3x, a 5x, and maybe 8x - 10x nozzle. On the other hand, the FF which is relatively small, has two nozzles (1.5x and 12x) and is more powerful overall.

Edit- Spelling and details.

The Dev is better. The main nozzle on the FF is underpowered and the burst that comes from the FF nozzle feels weak. The Dev is underrated as mine shoots about 40ft like scorpion's and the shot is strong. The nozzle could be bigger but that can be changed. ^_^

I null voted since I don't have either of them and probably won't bother getting them. But from what I have heard the Devastator seems better.

Don't post for which you are going to buy, instead post which you think is better overall. It seems that there are many that are not going to buy either. But I created this topic for those who were deciding between the two, could have a good range of opinions to help them with their choice.

Well, even though I haven't used or witnessed either the Aquapak seems better because of its backpack. It is a very good idea for a soaker.

The aquapack is much better. I actually have both guns, though I had to fix the FF's trigger because it broke. The devastator is not underpowered for its size, the working part is smaller than that on all of the CPS guns including the Flash Flood. Also the Devastator is really more powerful overall than the FF, and has a longer range (no matter what the idiots at Hasbro write on the box). In sum, the Devastator is more powererful, has a larger capacity, is more comfortable to use, and is sturdier than the Flash Flood.

Well this is weird, because the Flash Flood gets a higher rating on iSoaker then the AquaPak Devastator (I think it's 90 for the FF and 80/85 for the AquaPak Dev). I was going to get a Flash Flood, but now it seems like the AquaPak is much better. I might get both, who knows?

The answer in asking the question of which blaster is better than another will never be solved. However the question of what gun is better suited for a better role is an opinion of the user. By creating this poll, you are asking the opinion of others on which gun is better, that is ok. However to truly find out what gun is better for you, you should read reviews on each gun and ask yourself what roles you will be filling in combat. The Devastator is good for backpack reconnaissance or frontline assaults, and the flash flood can be used as a main assault rifle or a backup. It all depends on what you find is better for you. Do you want speed, power, maneuverability, or capacity? It's your choice. I see this topic as an honest question, and I will leave it open for discussion. :)

I meant, which is a better soaker overall? In this case meaning, which can fill more positions and which is a more versatile gun. I guess most people are leaning toward the Aquapack, but I'm still not convinced. On isoaker, it appears as though the FF actually gives you more for it's size.

That can be answered to some degree. You can choose what people would pick here, but know the strengths and weaknesses of your blaster; what it and you can do and not do. If you pick one blaster over the other, make sure you don't fall into a role where your gun causes you to be a liability. :)

I would say that the Devastator is more versatile by far, as it is light, has a relatively powerful stream, has acceptable range, and has a good water supply. The Flash Flood, however, has a weak main stream, a wasteful and difficult to aim riot blast, a tiny reservoir, and a potentially breakable trigger.

In my eye, there both just another few of hasbro's Gimmick blasters. But the Dev sounds more like something larami might do in my opinion. Unfortunately, all I have is the FF is all I have so that's what I voted for. Also,the FF barely needs any pumping to do great damage. 1 pump will get 3 quick shots out of it's normal nozzle. And 3 pumps will unleash enough from It's Flood nozzle to basically drench anybody's shirt. ^_^ If you only pump three times for the flood blast, you could get 20 good blasts before reloading.
