iS SuperSoaker monsterxlbbox_01tbThe Super Soaker Monster XL (2002 Edition) is a shortened version of the Super Soaker Monster XL that was initially released in 2000. It is currently believed that the Super Soaker Monster XL as well as the Super Soaker Monster X 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 Super Soaker Monster XL 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 double-barrelled, 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. The bipod adds both functionality and a meanness to its profile. 11 nozzle settings to choose from will meet virtually any soaking need.

Cons

Really heavy! This things weighs a good deal when fully loaded. It also take many pumps (over 30) to load the firing chambers, 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. As great as the nozzle settings are, remember that four hostiles from four different directions will still have the upper hand. The bipod legs can make pumping awkward when in the up-position.

The Monster XL is my favourite soaker. It is ones of those soakers which are either really liked or really disliked. It is rarely a middle thing. Many don't like it for its size, weight, and amount of pumps. For people who like to run and move around, the MXL will be difficult to use. However, this positive review is meant for people who have no problems with carring 20 pounds and doing a lot of pumping. As already mentioned, its drawbacks are the weight, especially the balance, since the front part is much heavier than the back part. The balance is better once its filled with water. Also, with the strap, you can let it simply hang from your shoulders and shoot from the hip which does not require much lifting. There might be alot of pumping, but the MXL has an easier pump than the CPS 2100. The quick fill ability speeds up battle recovery once you run out water. The support legs seem medium build, but the rest of this soaker is built extremely well. The many nozzle sizes gives enough choices for conserving water. Also, the size of the MXL makes it usable as a shield.

The main strengths of the Monster XL are the long shot time and incredible soakage. The single nozzle 5X has 14 seconds shot time, 10 seconds of longer shot time than the CPS 1500. The dual nozzle 11.5X has a shot time of 4 seconds. So a clear 23X shot for 4 seconds can go head on with any 20X soaker out there. The MXL might be underpowered for its size, but not underpowered in general. It outpoweres the CPS 1000 and CPS 1500. I have to mention that this review is about the 2002 model, which is shorter than the 2000-01 model. Also, according to other MXL reviews and stats, the 2002 model is more powerful and has longer shot times than the 2000-01 model. As a sidearm I suggest big CPS weapons with straps like the CPS 1500 and the MonsterX... that is, if you can carry both. You might as well not worry about mobility anymore once you use the MXL so another huge CPS weapon will not make much of a difference. Also, a second big CPS weapon will prevent people from ganging up on you. I use 2xMonster XL soakers for every mission and the 46X soakage is always useful. If you are a heavy gunner or someone who likes big soakers and extreme soakage, the Monster XL is a must. They are usualy sold out at the same day of shipment, so if you have the chance to buy it, do not hesitate. Properly used, the Monster XL is the ultimate weapon in a water battle.
