iS SuperSoaker tripleplay_01tbThe Super Soaker XP Triple Play is the 2001 Series' little brother of the Super Soaker SC Triple Charge. Like the Super Soaker SC Triple Charge, the XP Triple Play can be filled from a Q.F.D. or from a tap by unscrewing the reservoir from its holder. The XP Triple Play also comes with two extra reservoirs. All reservoirs can be filled from either a tap/hose or from an active Q.F.D. even if not attached to the blaster. The reservoir does store the water under pressure and can be swapped once the reservoir on the blaster runs dry. A neat feature is that each reservoir has its own built-on belt clip meaning that you can use any belt or even the top of one's pants/shorts to strap the extra tanks onto. Be aware, though, that this clip does not hold the tanks that securely and running with loaded tanks may result in tank loss.

In times when an active Q.F.D. is unavailable, the Super Soaker XP Triple Play can be pressurized by pumping it up like other air-pressurized Super Soakers™.

iS SuperSoaker tripleplay_17tbSmaller than the Super Soaker SC Triple Charge, the XP Triple Play also carries much less water but feels more comfortable to hold. The clips which fasten the mounted reservoir in place also appear to be better constructed than the Super Soaker SC Triple Charge's clips. However, like the Super Soaker SC Triple Charge, the angle at which the reservoir's intake is placed means that this blaster must be aimed upwards to prevent getting mist shots. As well, the small size of the reservoir dramatically reducing firing time. The XP Triple Play, thus, can only be considered a light side-arm/back up blaster. While potentially good as a main blaster in a small skirmish, the XP Triple Play, even with 3 tanks in total, does not have the staying power to last in larger confrontations.

Pros

Small, light, easy to carry and fill. Additional reservoirs can be filled from either a tap or Q.F.D. and will store pressurized water until needed. Reservoirs are interchangeable even when pressurized. Pumping blaster is quick and easy.

Cons

The angle of the water intake in the reservoir means one has to point upwards most of the time to minimize getting mist shots. Reservoir size is quite small. The Super Soaker XP Triple Play is outclassed by most blasters with the exception of the Super Soaker XP 240 or smaller.

The XP Triple Play:
Cool idea for it to have three tanks. Unfortunately, each one holds less than what is held in an XP 220. Fairly good power, but runs out of water too fast. You can barely shoot it any direction without it shooting a mist shot. Light, good power for a side-arm, and the tanks actually are more useful than the actual gun itself as you can dump them down other people's backs! :) Overall, it's a pretty good weapon, but barely worth the $15 USD it costs.
