I think I fixed the Max-D 3000. It's awesome. It has huge output and range, especially for its size.

What do you think of the Shark? It's a nice little piston gun I think, only problem is the leaky cap. Certainly outclasses the Hasbro piston guns that cost over double the price and perform worse (eg Quick Blast)

@VAJMH The Xp 20 is definately underrated, but all of the guns work well.
@Ncog: The Shark is a great gun, and it is a great deal for anbody looking for an inexpensive backup.

Yeah, the Shark is pretty good. The only piston gun better than it is my homemade piston gun, which is my APH when I raplace the bottle with an endcap. It has huge output and it's really fast to pump.

I just bought an Equalizer, a Helix, a Power Shot, and the new Soaker Wars Max-D 3000 twin pack. I also gave my friend's Max-D 3000 back to him.

That's very kind of you!

Good choice with the Equalizer, they are good. I also have some Power Shots...They're good little blasters but unfortunately they leak quite a bit...does yours? The Helix is pretty good too (for a piston gun) and Max-D 3000s are nice sidearms.

My recent additions have been an XP 20, SS 30 (classic), another Argon, a BBT Kwik Grip and an SS 50 (one of the earlier versions, not the classic remake). Saw an auction the other day for about 7 water guns, of which 3 looked almost identical to CPS 1500s...My heart leapt until I looked closer and saw that they were all cheap knockoffs >.<

What do you think of the helix? I think its a pretty neat close in shotgun soaker.

I don't know... I think my Helix might be defective. The stream is all broken up and looks nothing like the pictures of it shooting. I also can't adjust it so that it has a more closed in blast. Is it supposed to be like that? I like my Shark a lot better.

My Power Shot leaks a lot too.

The stream is usually sort of fragmented unless you push the pump more slowly. To adjust it you should just turn the little black and green checked casing near the nozzle, but not the nozzle cover itself... If thats not working for you it might be bad.

Anyhow, the next post is going to be super image intensive. Here comes my finished armory:

I can make the blast more closed in a little, but not that much. : /

My collection. The SSs on the side were sort of cut out of the pic. dang.

In one of these you can see the supersoaker bow and arrow and my devastator, get a better view of that in the next one though:

It's fixed.

How in the world did you paint the backpack red? How do you paint water guns anyway?

Yeah they didnt allow hotlinking so I had to just link the images to their site... Oh and the Helix always does a spread, its not a beam gun, its more like a scatter gun.
