Behind Schedule, but Catching Up

Normally, by this time of the year, I would have put together the “Best New Water Blaster / Water Gun” article, but due to various reasons including a rather busy work schedule, hectic life, and various other distractions, I’ve fell a touch behind this year. Fear not; though the choice for this year may be obvious to some, the official article is coming soon.

I also have some fun other developments planned for 2015. Hopefully, they turn out well, but only time will tell.

Recommended Nerf Super Soaker 2015 Reviews?

Of the latest 2015 Nerf Super Soaker water blaster models, are there any of these that have yet to be fully reviewed that you would like to take a deeper dive into?

I am open to potentially reviewing one or two more of these items depending on interest. I’ll make my decision on May 4th – post your thoughts and/or suggestions by then.

Thanks and soak on!

Water Warriors brand Evolution Tree updated for 2015

Recently updated the Water Warriors brand Evolution Tree on Looking at how was built, there are many support pages that need to be manually updated each year as new water guns are added to a particular series. I’ve experimented with some content management systems, but haven’t been satisfied with any (not to mention most end up with so many updates and steep server requirements, it gets costly (time and money) to keep them running.

I need to figure out a better way, though, to manage the information on my site.

What is the best new water gun / water blaster for 2015?

As Spring is mostly here, this is usually the time I’d take a look at what new water guns are available, compare the stats I measures from the ones I have, and make a call.

For 2015, the Flood Force brand is a dud, the Nerf Super Soaker brand continues to focus on pump-action water blasters, and the Water Warriors brand seems to have followed Nerf Super Soaker, releasing more pump-action and having only one “new” pump-action-based continuous-stream capable blaster released for 2015, the Steady Blast. The main reason Water Warriors remains ahead overall is that they also continue to have some good performing air pressure water guns available, though these are models released in previous years, thus are not considered as “new” for 2015.

So what’s the best new water gun for 2015?

… what if I were to say the best has yet to come…


Spring Cleaning @ iSoaker

Though the temperatures in the forecast remain near-freeze for the upcoming weekend here, it is time for me to do a little spring-cleaning of my collection and prepare for the “On-Season”. Warmer weather should just be a week or so away (though there remains the chance of chills for at least another month).

For spring, I don’t dive into everything, but I go over my active armoury an ensure all water blasters are in good, clean, working condition. While I do clean and empty my blasters prior to storage, a few months in a box can still result in some dust accumulation (and the occasional spider web if my storage area isn’t sealed tight). It’s also the time I make decisions on what new blaster may be worth adding into my active armoury and what, if any, blaster should be moved from active to long term storage.

What do you do with your armoury at this time of the year?

Waiting for Warmth – Need to do Range Testing

While we had a fairly mild day last week (temperatures got above 10C), it’s been below or only barely above freezing here ever since. While not too bad by itself, combined with the wind, while part of me wants to do range testing on the newest water blasters I’ve added to my armoury, Mother Nature just isn’t permitting that just yet.

Looking ahead in the forecast, things don’t appear to be getting warm enough until at least the latter part of next week. Of course, though, there’s also the problem of rain for Spring. Range testing in the rain, while not impossible, is not as accurate (nor as fun) as a nice, sunny, calm wind day.

I’m hoping for a good weather break in the next couple of weeks, but only time (and Mother Nature) can tell.


Hoping for another warmer, sunny day – with a little luck and some spare time, I just might be able to do a little range testing on some water blasters today.
