The Blazer is Buzz Bee Toys' way of circumnavigating the CPS patent, creating a technology called "Hydro Power". It has two Diaphragm chambers and these give the Blazer very good shot time, the precise length of which varies according to which one of the five nozzles you choose to use. The Blazer also comes with a strap, so it's good to use as a backup when you've finished using your primary.
On the negative side, the power is limited. With five nozzles provided, it's also a shame that no fan spray nozzles are provided, although this is no crippling blow. However, a more annoying feature is an electronic pressure gauge operated by a sort of backwards-pointing trigger, which is uncomfortable and is generally accidentally activated by normal firing. This makes it a bad choice for night fights, unless of course one takes out the batteries.
To finish, I like to view the Blazer as a sign of good things to come. With moderate power in a smallish package, it is better than all of the 2004 Super Soaker line up - and I hope to see bigger and more powerful blasters from Buzz Bee for 2005.
