The Super Soaker XP 310 was the largest air pressure water gun released by Larami Ltd. in 2000 under the Super Soaker XP line. For all intents and purposes, it can be thought of as the big brother to the Super Soaker XP 220, sharing the same colour palette and some similar styling, though also being quite different since the XP 310 features dual separate air pressure chambers.
The Super Soaker XP 220 was the second-smallest air pressure water gun released by Larami Ltd. in 2000 under the Super Soaker XP brand and is like the Super Soaker XP 215s slightly older brother. While definitely a pistol-class water blaster, the XP 220 will fit only larger pockets. Having twice the water capacity of the XP 215, the XP 220 offers a little longer field life, though its limited output and capacity means this water blaster is not meant to challenge significantly larger pressurized water blasters.

The Super Soaker XP 215, released in 2001 by Larami Ltd., is one of the smallest pressurized water blasters ever made. The XP 215 is also one of my all time favourite water blasters having been as far as China, my XP 215s have been a trusty companion water blaster over the years.

The Super Soaker Triple Shot, released in 2005, is one of the best and possibly the most powerful of the pistol-sized water blasters ever released. Introduce by Hasbro Inc. in 2005 along with the rest of the Soaker Tag Elite series, the Triple Shot was the smallest of the new water guns released under the Super Soaker brand that year. However, compared to all other pistol-class water blasters before it, few would expect to see the performance this particular model would give.
The Water Warriors Vindicator was the largest of the linear-style water blasters released by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. in 2009. As the big brother of the Water Warriors Equalizer, the Vindicator sports a five (5)-setting nozzle selector, shoulder strap, and an internal elastic pressure chamber. As one of the most potent water guns since the end of the CPS-brand of Super Soaker, the Vindicator was a sight for sore eyes. Sadly, its development and evolution was cut short, though there remains hope that we have not seen the last of this type of blaster. Continue reading Water Warriors Vindicator – A Closer Look
Like the Super Soaker CPS 1500, the Super Soaker Monster (2001) remains also one of my all-time favourite water blasters. The smallest of the “Monster” series of Super Soaker water blasters, the Super Soaker Monster (2001) is actually my preferred one of the three. Evolving (or, more accurately, devolving) into the Super Soaker CPS 4100 for 2002, the Super Soaker Monster (2001) has a great design and provides solid performance. Interestingly, it is because Hasbro/Larami decided to create a smaller “Monster-class” water blaster that the original Super Soaker Monster ended up being renamed as the Super Soaker Monster X. However, it also has some traits that could have been improved upon. Unfortunately, also like Super Soaker CPS 1500, the Super Soaker Monster (2001) evolution line ended all too soon.

The Water Warriors Python 2 is a great pressurized reservoir water blaster released by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. in 2013. As a newer version of the Water Warriors Python (2012), the Python 2 more-or-less improved on every aspect of the Python from output to range to capacity to ergonomics. As such, the Water Warriors Python 2 was declared the Best New Water Gun / Water Blaster for Summer, 2013 by iSoaker.com. Read on to learn more about this simple, solid performance pressurized water blaster. Continue reading Water Warriors Python 2 – A Closer Look
The Super Soaker CPS 1500 was released by Larami Ltd. back in 1998. While not the largest water blaster released that year by Larami, the CPS 1500 was, undoubtedly, my personal favourite blaster and one of the key reasons for me to get inspired enough to launch my first website dedicated to water blaster technology. Few blasters offer the power, flexibility, ease-of-use, unique styling, and additional features that make the CPS 1500 one of the best all-purpose water blasters ever created. The level of perfection achieved by this blaster was echoed by the fact that while the rest of the CPS line got new versions for their year 2000 release, the CPS 1500 merely got a new paint job and was renamed the CPS 1700. Continue reading Super Soaker CPS 1500 – A Closer Look
The Water Warriors Equalizer was released by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. in 2009 and was the smallest of a new layout of Water Warriors-brand water blaster. Its larger brethren are the Water Warriors Renegade and Water Warriors Vindicator. The Equalizer subsequently evolved into the Water Warriors Outlaw (2013) which can still be found on store shelves at the time this article is being written. The Equalizer is also one of my all-time favourite water blasters. Let’s explore why. Continue reading Water Warriors Equalizer – A Closer Look
The Water Warriors Drench Master is a simple, effective pump-action water blaster released by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. in 2015. Following in the footsteps of older Water Warriors pump-action models, the Drench Master brings to the table greater capacity than the 2008 Water Warriors Avenger while still offering a nozzle selector, albeit with only two nozzle settings from which to choose. For this type of water blaster, the Drench Master offers good capacity and performance in a solid package.
