Hey sup all, kinda new. ^_^ Who else here thinks storms are the best. I love em. this years ss are awful and dumb. -_- and it would seem trendmasters the company for storms is disintegrated. I have not been able to get to the website. the only place I have found many storms is on eabay and there are not always trusty people there. so I Don't by them. <_< I would like to mod my storms but it would seem that the only mod to be done is the valve freezing and it did not work to well. so I shall try epoxy next time and not glue.

Welcome to SSC!

The Storm's best asset was their pistols. Their larger guns were ok, but I haven't used any of them. Possibly someone else has.

50% of my teams aresnal are storm. I really like storm for their pistols. I also like their design. And the laser thing is cool sometimes, although useless.

all storm rifles I have used have broken. One for some reason became very hard to pump. I havn't purchased one in years. I might have been able to fix it now. I've only used a pistol once but it was awesome.

From what I have seen and heard, storm rifles are no better than a storm pistol thats just bigger. good when its small, bad when its big. I also think the unlimitor is ridiculous to use on a pistol...how are you going to soak someone with a fancy hose attachment...

Ah, I know that one, my neighbor has it. It's a Storm Monsoon Force 4.

I believe my brother has that one^ And my other friend has a red/black storm rifle. I also have two Storm 600 pistols, which are very nice!

I have one of the larger Storm guns (I'm not sure what it's called...all it said on the box was "The Storm", no name or anything. I personally think it stinks. It takes about 30-50 pumps and only gets about 15-20 feet. I tried to turn it into a Nerf gun but it still blew chunks. It might be on account of the huge amount of space the electronics are taking up, but if I were to take those out I'd have to replace most of the gun anyway.

I'm afraid that the larger Storm guns, like the 2500, are worthless and leak substantially. You're going to want to stick to their pistols. The Storm 750s remain to be the best medium-sized pistols I've ever used.

Even the smallest CPS Super Soaker kicks any Storm guns butt! The Storms look sucky, and just don't make it in a serious Water War. Go with a fairly available CPS like the 2100 or 4100, and anybody with a Storm will be running away as fast as they can. :Hey, that's funny.:

I agree. My friend has a Storm Pistol and it is actually really good. I use a Max-D 2000 as a side arm he uses the storm 600 as a back-up. We always debate which gun is better as a side arm, but never get anywhere, anyone have an idea what one is better?

I didn't appreciate the Max-Ds until I saw the new 2004 line, now I wish we had them back. I'll take the Max-D 2000 over the Storm 600 anyday. The Storms just feel cheap to me. The Max-Ds still have that quality feel like they will last forever.
We went to ToysRus last night, and I almost cried looking at those new Super Soakers.

I dissagree, only because Storms all have good range, and range is to me, better than power. I would go with a Storm 300 over a MD 3000 any day.

They both get the same range, but one requires pumping. The less I need to pump, the better.
