Nerf Super Soaker TornadoStrike Review

Summer is officially here!  It’s time for some fun in the sun and for me that means one thing; the POOL!  I am a huge fan of bringing my water blasters along when we go outside to our pool, I mean, what’s more fun than splashing about in water above your head while blasting my family with a Super Soaker.  I wouldn’t recommend doing this at close range, trust me, getting temporarily blinded by a point blank ShotBlast shot to the eye is just as painful and hilarious as you might believe.

Today I offer to you the Super Soaker TornadoStrike, another of the new Super Soaker line to utilize the water clip system.  The blaster has a rotating 6 nozzle cylinder fired by pumping the slider on the bottom of the blaster’s body, there is no trigger.  The TornadoStrike also comes with a detachable butt stock which is a redesign of the N-Strike Raider’s butt stock but if it isn’t broke and all that.

Nerf Super Soaker ThunderStorm Review

It’s time to round out the week, and our trilogy of warm weather reviews.  I know it’s sad, but don’t worry, warm weather will be here soon, but if you just can’t wait to scratch your Super Soaker itch you can fill this blaster up with warm water and go melt some snow!  I bring to you, the Nerf Super Soaker THUNDERSTORM.

The THUNDERSTORM is the most unique water blaster I’ve had the pleasure of owning.  It is the first such blaster to offer quick reloading via the new water clip.  Yes, that’s right, I said it has a clip.  No longer will we have to spend the majority of our time huddled around a spigot fighting over who gets to refill first.  The clip holds about 11 ounces(300lm) of liquid and fits very snugly in the blaster forming an excellent seal.  A full clip adds a bit of weight to the blaster, which is rather light without the water, but the extra weight doesn’t hinder use of the THUNDERSTORM(even for a 4 year old).  Another nifty feature of the clip is the addition of a build in belt clip, giving you the ability to hold multiple clips on your person during a battle, a feature not currently offered on any of the clip system dart blasters.

Nerf Super Soaker Scatter Blast Review

Spring, an almost mythical time when the snow melts and people(in the north) are actually happy to get out of the house for a while.  I hear this happy season is almost upon us, and with that hopes and dreams of summer when the sun’s so hot we can’t wait to douse ourselves in any water we can find.  Yup, summer means Super Soakers, and here’s another review from Nerf’s new line, the Scatter Blast.

The second offering I’ve been able to sample from Nerf’s ever growing chest-o-Super Soakers is the Scatter Blast.  This small water blaster resembles a sawed off shotgun in design, and sports more of the trademark orange plastic than the Point Break and honestly this doesn’t bother me save for the pump action which I wish was designed similarly to the pump on other Super Soakers like the Point Break.  This is the second of Nerf’s Super Soakers that I’ve had the opportunity to try out that doesn’t use a trigger to fire the water, which I found odd at first.  “What’s that you say, just pump it and it fires?  You’re crazy.” I’d say, then I’d think back to when I was a child using my old school water blasters and all the time I spent running away from my friends getting drenched pumping away after using up the charge in my blaster when I could have just been pump firing the whole time.  Then I thought how ingenious it was not having a trigger, which can possibly get in the way during high intensity water battles.

Nerf Super Soaker Point Break Review

Spring is almost upon us, and it’s time to remind ourselves of the fun we’ll have once the sun’s warm rays rids us of the snow and we can finally start playing outside.  We’ll kick off the spring warm up by reviewing the Nerf Super Soaker Point Break.

I haven’t followed the complete history of the Super Soaker, I haven’t owened one since Larami held the license and back in the day they were something to look up to.  Let’s just say I have a new found interest in the line now that it belongs to Nerf.  The Point Break is the first offering I have been able to sample since Nerf changed the color scheme of the Super Soaker line from a Dart Tag-esque red and grey/blue and grey team battle inspired design to the new white and blue-grey design.  The new colors give the blaster an almost arctic feel and looks very sharp all around.  The handle is well shaped, and is large enough to for comfortably in an adult hand.  I’m not the biggest fan of the trigger’s shape, but I feel this is a minor complaint considering this is a product made for kids.
