Pressure is NOT always Better

So much for my Pressure is Better article.

Being curious about Target, which used to carry one of the best selection of Super Soaker and Water Warriors brand products, now stocks their seasonal shelving with Nerf Super Soaker and Flood Force-brand water guns.

For 2015, Nerf Super Soaker appears focused solely on style and pump-action-type water blasters. The Flood Force brand, made by SwimWays Corp., offers some fairly decent-sized water guns that actually use air pressure to create their streams! Might this be another good alternative brand to check out? Continue reading Pressure is NOT always Better

2011 Community War, Battle Report

DAY 1, August 20th, 2011:

I got to the park a bit later than I wanted to, due to a late start and getting stopped twice by all the construction that’s going on in my area. After I got there, I unloaded everything onto a picnic table sitting by the basketball court (The pavilion was taken.). Scott arrived in a few minutes, and we set up the gazibo that he brought and filled up the water bottles. Right after we finished with that, everyone else arrived (Great timing!). After a tour of the forest area, we were ready to begin. I decided to use my 2700 because it has the best non-homemade power of all my guns, and is too heavy for my brothers (It does wear down on the arms after a while.). I also used my backpack, in which I stored a MD 4000 for back-up, with 2 water bottles and my Swiss Army knife (I later found out that I also had an old pair of socks in there, that were there since last winter. 😛 ).

Boys vs. Girls

By: Maurice

I discovered the world of supersoakers about a year ago. I collected about 15 soakers. Since I’m a sportsteacher I decided to let my students enjoy these unknown classic old fashioned waterguns as well. The students spend most of their time behind a pc so running for your life with a huge supersoaker in your hands is a more fun and active lifestyle. Continue reading Boys vs. Girls

Nightime Free-for-all

The following takes place on Wednesday, April 7th, 2010. Around 20:30 military time.

It was hot, hot, hot. A perfect day for a water fight. The only problem is, whenever me and my brothers(I’ll refer to them as K & J.) have a battle, it always turns out rather boring. Our property is very open, with no cover at all. So what always happens is this: I’m walking around the house, I see one of my brothers, we both charge forward until we’re almost at firing distance, and then one of us will run forward a couple of steps and fire, before quickly jumping back to avoid the opponents fire. So it’s basically back and forth until one of us decides to run back to behind a shed or something to try and set up an ambush. Occasionally we’ll get a few successful ambushes, but aside from that, I’m bored most of the time. Continue reading Nightime Free-for-all

First Event of Summer: 2 v 2, November 4th, 2009

By: ncog


Last night one of my friends suggested having a water fight today, since the weather forecast predicted a hot 27C (though with a heavy wind warning). Plans were made and my three friends arrived today in the afternoon (for the sake of this article I will call them Roger, Yarning and William). None of them had their own soakers yet, so I laid out my five best working soakers (Vindicator, Pulse Master, Orca, Tiger Shark and Renegade) out on the lawn for them to choose from. After the three of them had chosen, I was left to choose out of the Tiger Shark and Renegade. I decided to go for the Renegade since I believed it to have a better range than the Tiger Shark and was interested to see how it would fare as the only air pressure soaker on the field. The weather during the water fight was overcast but still warm (nowhere near 27C but still nice for a water fight); shortly after we finished the sun broke through the cloud cover and increased the temperature significantly (though if that had happened during the water fight we would have likely gotten sunburnt, so it was probably better the way the weather turned out).
