REVIEW: Super Soaker Flash Blast

Yup, another Super Soaker (and I use the term loosely), this time it's a Flash Blast. I'm just gonna come right and say it, avoid this one. And here's why.

I'll start with the good stuff. The Flash Blast is comfy to hold and easy to prime (yes, prime). This blaster has a primer on it akin to the Magnus or Side Strike. When it's drawn back, a piston fill with water, pull the trigger, and a spring compresses the piston and squirts the water out of the nozzle.

This results in a short blast of water that doesn't travel far, doesn't intimidate anyone and kinda reminds me of the archer fish (the one that squirts water at bug to knock them off branches and into the river).

The the Flash Blast is the only Super Soaker to have actual slam-fire. This results in a continuous stream of water that will use up all your ammo fast, really fast. Capacity on this is an issue.

I won't waste too much time on this thing. It just all-round bad. Comfy handle is the only thing it has going for it and there are better alternatives for the same price.

1. comfy handle
2. easy prime

1. poor capacity
2. poor range
3. there are better alternatives for the price
4. not enough "Super" or "Soaker"

  1. I was thinking of getting just as a small water pistol and nothing too big... this review changed my mind.
