In light of all the privacy and data issues on Facebook (plus given the fact that I never really liked that platform), I’ve opted to remove the “iSoaker Warriors Facebook” page.
All-in-all, not much of a loss, truthfully. There wasn’t any major content on there, anyhow, and its visibility was mediocre at best. Besides, with what little free time I have these days, might as well focus on developing content where I find most enjoyment, anyhow.
A review of the Adventure Force Power Raider, manufactured by Buzz Bee Toys Inc., is now posted on iSoaker.com. In short, the Power Raider is a separate pressure chamber air-pressure water blaster that sports a 3-option nozzle selector and detachable red-dot scope. Stream power is decent, but shot times are short due to the small size of the pressure chamber.
The Adventure Force: Power Raider is a private label water blaster made by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. for Walmart’s Adventure Force brand.
The Power Raider is a separate air-pressure chamber water blaster that features a removable “red-dot” scope. While the Power Raider’s pressure chamber is on the small-side, that also means it can be pressurized quickly. Streams are decent, albeit brief as well.
More information on the Adventure Force: Power Raider as more testing is completed.
Found pictures of the upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm from this website.
This design reminds me of the Super Soaker Hydro Blade (2004). However, unlike the Hydro Blade, I do not believe that the Ripstorm is a pressurized water blaster. How well it functions in stream or “shred” mode remains to be seen.
Update: Just realized the Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm is already available for sale on Amazon.com.
Something a little different:
Though it may be awhile (and a little impractical) to try to load this stuff into a water blaster, scientists seem to have determined a new state for ice. Granted, they used some lasers and diamonds to compress water ice VII even more.
From the Nature Physics article: “Using time-resolved optical pyrometry and laser velocimetry measurements as well as supporting density functional theory–molecular dynamics (DFT-MD) simulations, we document the shock equation of state of H2O to unprecedented extreme conditions and unravel thermodynamic signatures showing that ice melts near 5,000K at 190 GPa.”
To think steel melts at ~1,650K and here we are talking about water, but under some serious pressure.
Granted, with that heat and pressure, not sure one would want to be hit by it.
Well, recently acquired a Nerf Super Soaker Soakzooka.
I can’t say I’ve done much testing on this water blaster beyond loading it and pumping it a handful of times, but I suppose the most surprising thing about the Nerf Super Soaker Splashmouth is that they (Hasbro) would even think this would be a good idea in the first place!
Just when I thought a pump-action water blaster couldn’t get worse. The pump, itself, actually seems to function decently for a pump-action blaster, but the large top cap does not seal tightly (no surprise) and the “splash” attack has limited range (a bucket would be better) and does a great job at disarming the user as well.
I believe the three words sum up the Nerf Super Soaker Splashmouth best are: What. The. Heck?
Stats to be measured, but I’m not particularly inspired by this water blaster.
