Neuro's Review

This is a very unique gun. Even though it was made in an "even" year, where Larami usually remakes old soakers, this blaster looks like nothing before it. It has quite a bit of embellishment, although the yellow "tube" on top does serve the purpose of housing some 3/8" tubing. Note also that this is the smallest soaker ever to feature a tracked pump. Mine usually gets stuck after prolonged periods of non-use, but this is a minor setback, a little tug and the problem's solved. I was really surprised at how quickly the pump fills up the reservoir, it only takes about 17 pumps. The pump is a *little* harder to use, so I'd imagine that's why. The trigger is very smooth, it will only make a lot of noise if you pull it too hard. This gun has very high output, you get about 3.5 shots out of the reservoir. The 7.5x nozzle is a perfect medium, the spray is quite even. Contrary to what iSoaker is saying, I don't see any shotgun effect on the blaster, must be an instance-specific thing. I got mine off eBay too, so I don't know, it might have been "damaged" in shipping, although I see it as an improvement. Also, this soaker seems to have a tendency to build up quite a bit of moisture after intense use, so watch out for that! This is an all-around good soaker, with enough range to outblast anything under a CPS 1200. Just be wary of using too much water.

Drenchenator's Review

The CPS 2100 is a very good gun overall. It is not too large, too small, too heavy, or too weak. The tracked pump makes the gun feel incredibly solid. It performs well; its range is in the 40's and its output is a solid 5x. The gun lacks a strap: a problem that can easily be fixed.
