iS SuperSoaker monsterXbbox_01tbThe Super Soaker Monster X (2002 Edition) is a shortened version of the Super Soaker Monster X that was initially released in 2000. It is currently believed that the Super Soaker Monster X as well as the Super Soaker Monster XL were trimmed in length in 2002 as was requested by some retailers for optimization of shelving space. Some state that the performance of the shortened version of the Monster X is different than that of the original. Due to its rarity, though, iSoaker.com will not be testing it unless a second one become available.

Pros

A CPS-based, SC-capable really big water blaster able to thoroughly soak your opponent down to his/her undergarments in seconds. Its sheer size and water streams usually makes others take a second thought before attempting to engage the user of this weapon. 6 nozzle settings to choose from will meet virtually any soaking need.

Cons

Heavy. This things weighs a good deal when fully loaded. It also take many pumps (over 30) to load the firing chamber, but only a couple of blinks to empty it. Its sheer size will make most run or get a bunch to gang up one the user. It also becomes rather back-heavy when filling up reservoir from a hose or tap without a Q.F.D.

The Monster X should be the standard weapon for every commander or heavy gunning fighter. It has enough power to keep up with any other powerful CPS weapons and is large enough to psychologically intimidate your opponents. The very cool looking design and colour scheme is something that is an improvement over the classical big CPS soakers. It is also not as heavy as the Monster XL. In a matter of fact, if you hang the MX on your shoulder with the strap, you can comfortably shoot from your hip without any heavy lifting. The long shoot time on the 5X nozzle gives you an edge over most CPS soakers. I also have to mention that this review is about the 2002 model, and according to other reviews and stats, is not as long in size, but superior in shot time compared to the 2000-01 version. Also, changable nozzles give you a choice in how you want to conserve water and the super charger ability is helpful if you need to refill quickly. Some drawbacks include the length and weight if your fighting style includes running around. Also the tank, even though its large, can be emptied quickly, but that is also true for every other CPS soaker. The MX's strengths are its well-built structure and low amount of pumping. It is very robust and you don't have to worry about breaking anything while pumping. It takes about as much pumping as the CPS 2100, but the MX makes pumping easier. For a side arm, I would recommend a Max-D 6000, a CPS 2100, or a CPS 4100. On the other hand, a second Monster X hanging on your other shoulder is not such a bad idea if you are a heavy gunner or if you don't like people ganging up on you. I recommend getting a Monster X since it is a very good defensive and offensive weapon.
