Hands-On: Nerf Super Soaker Torrent

The Nerf Super Soaker Torrent is, in a word, disappointing.

First, it is only about 12″ (30cm) from nozzle to the end of the pump grip, looking and feeling rather small. What got me most intrigued by this water blaster, despite being an obvious syringe-type soaker, was how the stream would look and behave.

Alas, due to the elongated shape of the nozzle, the Torrent dribbles… a lot. You pretty much need to load and shoot as quickly as possible, otherwise most of the water you thought you had will have leaked out of the nozzle. I suppose one can minimize water loss by holding the blaster vertically with the nozzle pointed upwards just after filling, but that is far from a comfortable position.

The stream generated it fun being tall and thin, likely able to soak a target more rapidly since the stream does cover more area. Alas, the dribble issue as well as the somewhat awkward feel of the pump grip will limit how far away from a refill spot one can actually use the Torrent.

While I may do a little more testing with the Nerf Super Soaker Torrent, I had higher hopes for the “fun” factor of this water blaster.

Upcoming 2020 Nerf Super Soaker water blasters?

It appears that what was old is new again?

Looks like the original Super Soaker 100 and Super Soaker 30 are returning in an updated form. These new versions are given an “XP” designation, though this may be for EU/UK products and North American versions may or may not be named identically.

Not much else is known about these water blasters and how well they perform compared to the original versions. There are two other water blasters named, but no images available, yet: the Nerf Super Soaker XP20 and Super Soaker Fortnite Pump SG.

More info to come as it becomes available…

First Day of Summer, 2019

Happy First Day of Summer, 2019!

For me, it’s been actually one of the first days since the start of the year that it’s actually felt like summer. Alas, also like things have been for me since the start of the year, finding time to test and review the latest water blasters has been few and far between. I did recently pick up a couple of the Nerf Fortnite Super Soaker water blasters (specifically, the HC-E and R1; haven’t gotten the TS-R, yet). Unfortunately, haven’t had a chance to take pictures, let alone measure any statistics on either of them.

I also acknowledge that I’m behind on iSoaker.com reviews, notably for the Nerf Super Soaker Hydra and Nerf Super Soaker Piranha. I hope to get at least one review up by end of next week, but life keeps on dropping surprises on me so only time will tell.

Granted, this warm weather is inspiring me to want to go out and do some field testing using some of these new water blasters on friends and family. Hope others are making better use of the weather than I’ve managed to do, thusfar.
