Ben's Review

My mom bought bought this rare soaker at KB-Toys. It holds almost as much as a CPS 2700, but in a much smaller package, and gets around 45 shots per tank, but those stats do differ from person to person.

This soaker is probably the soaker that is most worth its money because it has a large reservoir and almost a 5X nozzle. If you see one of these, pick it up. It's a great backup weapon. There are 2 problems that I see and both can be fixed. If you don't screw the gun on the backpack tight enough, it will leak. Also, after a while, if you pull the pump too hard, water will shoot towards you thought the small holes between the nozzle and the gun casing. They should have glued it on better. But just cover that in something like epoxy or Elmers Glue or whatever and it's fixed. It is probably the best PowerSoaker clone ever made. The backpack that comes with it will barely fit on my 9 year old brother, so put it over your arm.

A very good trick that you can do with this soaker is when you keep pumping until the entire pump shaft is full of water. That makes your shot time huge.

RacerSoaker's Review

I picked up this rare gun at KB toys recently and, despite the cheap looking packaging, it is a really good gun.

At first glance, it looks like another awful no-name brand gun, but it's actually very well made. It's very simple to use- no pumping required. Just pull back the main handle, then push it forward to make the water come out.

The backpack is a nice addition, but the straps on it are way too small. The gun is black and yellow, with a sticker on the backpack.

For USD $8, how can you go wrong?
