iS SuperSoaker ss100ni_02tbThe 1997 "New and Improved" version of the original Super Soaker SS 100 is supposedly sturdier than its original counterpart, yet still feels rather fragile. The amount of water carried by the "New and Improved" SS 100 is respectable and its water use to capacity ratio is low due to the original-sized nozzle. It is also based on the separate air-pressure chamber allowing one to make full use of the water reservoir. However, the pump volume is quite small. The barrel of the "New and Improved" SS 100 is very long, but does not feel as if it were securely attached, making it definitely not a blaster one wants to fall on or drop. The "New and Improved" SS 100 also keeps firing a few moments after releasing the trigger, wasting some valuable ammunition.

All-in-all, the "New and Improved" Super Soaker SS100 can only be classified as a light assault rifle. Improved for 1999, this weapon really only outclasses the smaller water blasters such as the Super Soaker SS 50 and Super Soaker XP 20. This blaster should be handled with care and used only for back-up or for small water fights. Other than that, its just nice to have a reminder of days gone by.

Pros

Light for its size, easy to carry. Rate of fire-to-water supply ratio quite good and can last a fairly long time (though water yield is low). This is one of the weapons which helped change water war forever.

Cons

Fragile, has a tendency to leak, especially if the O-ring is damaged or loose. Nozzle size is significantly smaller than the newer weapons and range is more limited. The pumping mechanism is also somewhat fragile. (Don't force it to hard or it will break.)
