Nerf Super Soaker Washout pictures posted

Nerf Super Soaker Washout pictures posted on Being a relatively small pump-action water gun (and that it’s getting much closer to winter here), I presently have no plans on doing any major testing on this item. However, I will be posting a little more information and thoughts on this model in the near future.

Enjoy the boxed pictures for now!

Super Soaker XP 310 – A Closer Look

super_soaker_xp310_gridThe 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.

Water Warriors Vindicator – A Closer Look

water_warriors_vindicator_gridThe 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

War Stories / Battle Reports being migrated

The War Stories category is now added as a subsection of While focuses on the technology and gear that make water fights and water warfare possible, shall look more towards the User-side of the equation. Amongst other things, I am presently migrating old Fan Stories, War Stories, and Battle Reports over from to Once the migration is complete, I’ll be re-directing the link on to the category. One major advantage for using to house battle reports and war stories is that members have the ability to draft and publish their stories through the website. There has been a lull in war stories submissions to for a variety of reasons, but hope the development of inspires others to share their water blaster and water warfare experiences!

Soak on!

Roads ahead – Water Warriors water blaster developments

With the release of the Water Warriors Waterlord in Walmart, Canada, we are at the re-birth of seeing elastic-based water blasters returning to the consumer market. Buzz Bee Toys Inc’s decision to try for a Canadian release first was likely due to multiple reasons: date of expiration of the patent for which they had previous accepted an injunction,  start of the season being later in Canada than in the US and/or other countries, and the ability to work with specific retailers to make it happen.

Return of “Hydro Power”

As some have already seen, the review of the Water Warriors Waterlord is now posted on The Waterlord is the first rubber diaphragm-based water blaster to be produced by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. since the injunction imposed on them back in 2010. For various reasons, the Waterlord appears as if it will be only available at Walmart Canada in 2015, but with luck, it will appear on shelves in the US for 2016.

Disaster is too Appropriate

The only thing that the Flood Force Hurricane and Flood Force Tsunami are accurately about in their names is that they are both disasters, albeit unnatural ones. Though both are pressurized reservoir water blasters, they perform so poorly that I end up longing for a pump-action water blaster when testing them out.

Baffled by how a pressurized water blaster can yield such pitiful power and have so many problems, I opted to open up my Flood Force Tsunami to look at its internals. Continue reading Disaster is too Appropriate
