iS SuperSoaker ss5010yabox_01tbThe Super Soaker SS 50: 10th Year Anniversary Collector's Edition statistics are estimated, but have not been actually measured since this blaster still resides in its original box.

To celebrate the dawning of the new age of water warfare, the original series Super Soaker SS 50 was repackaged, coloured silver and sold in a plastic-sealed box: a "MUST-COLLECT" for any water-weapon enthusiast. By current standards, the SS 50 poses little threat. It does not have a separate pressure chamber and does not hold much water, relatively speaking, but its water use-to-supply ratio is excellent. The pumping mechanism is rather fragile but the SS 50 still reigned supreme in the time of primarily pump-action and battery-powered water blasters.

The Super Soaker SS 50: 10th Year Anniversary Collector's Edition version is really not meant for use in the field, but meant for keeping as a reminder of days gone by.

Pros

Small, light, 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. I know from experience.)
