iS_waterwarriors_blazer_02tbThe Water Warriors Blazer is the largest of the Water Warriors water blasters released in 2003 by Buzz Bee Toys Inc.. Its size and weigh place it larger than soakers such as the Super Soaker CPS 2100. However, despite being larger, this soaker feels quite comfortable and well-balanced when empty or when filled. The general construction appears to be quite sturdy. As well, the Blazer features a shoulder strap, making prolonged use or carrying additional soakers a definitely possibility without too much hinderance.

iS_waterwarriors_blazer_14tbThe reservoir on the Blazer is quite respectable. While the Blazer does make use of all it holds, the fact that the reservoir is opaque makes it a little harder to determine how much water is remaining. The firing system the Water Warriors Blazer uses is supposedly akin, though not identical, to the CPS system employed by the Super Soaker brand. Because of this, iSoaker.com has it classified as a CPS-based blaster though this is not 100% accurate. However, the dual firing chambers do hold an impressive amount of pressurized water and the pressure observed in the streams shows a near CPS-like quality (it is called 'Hydro Power' by Buzz Bee Toys); streams have only minor drop off near to the end of the water level in the pressure chambers.

iS_waterwarriors_blazer_11tbThe Blazer has 5 different nozzle settings ranging from a small nozzle with a diameter of about 1mm to its largest nozzle with a diameter of around 3mm. Unforunately, the Blazer does not have any fan or spray nozzle settings though the pressure chamber could easily have supported other spraying forms. Streams produced from the largest nozzle have a great feel to them, pushing out almost all the firing chamber's contents in about 7 seconds. The largest stream rivals that of the smallest setting on the Super Soaker Monster (2001). The smallest nozzle offers the best level of conservation for this blaster, giving the Blazer a maximum shot time of over 45 seconds without needing to repump. The pump, itself, is nicely tracked albeit a little low in the volume of water it moves per pump stroke.

iS_waterwarriors_blazer_12tbAn interesting feature on the Blazer is its electronic pressure gauge. Activated by a trigger-switch mounted opposite to the nozzle trigger, the pressure gauge indicated whether the firing chamber is full pressurized by glowing different colour patterns. When all the lights glow green, the pressure chamber is at maximum (though it is still recommendable to continue to pump until one can hear the check-valve functioning and the pump has more resistance in order to truly fill the firing chambers). As well, the placement of the pressure gauge activator means one will almost always activate the pressure gauge when firing, potentially wasting battery power unnecessarily. Also, this trigger switch rubs the user's hand between the thumb and index finger, potentially leading to hand strain after prolonged use.

Despite a couple of minor complaints, the Water Warriors Blazer makes a welcome addition to anyone's armoury. While when using, one should still be wary of others using CPS cannons, the Water Warriors Blazer user can easily go up against almost anything on the modern water war field.

Note: In 2005, an improved model of the Water Warriors Blazer was released. It colouring was changed to blue and white and its nozzle selector was modified, gaining a fan-spray setting while losing of the the intermediate nozzles. As there are still 4 remaining stream settings, the 5th intermediate setting is not missed.

Pros

Nice feel, well balanced, tracked pump, and has a strap. Good sized firing chamber with CPS-like behaviour. Largest nozzle equivalent to a low-class CPS-blaster while the smallest nozzle allows for great water conservation and lengthy shot times. Pressure gauge a cute touch.

Cons

No spray setting nozzles. Positioning of the pressure gauge switch activates it when not necessarily needed and can lead to hand strain/blistering after prolonged use. Opaque reservoir makes it difficult to determine water remaining. Trigger-grip area snug for those with larger hands.

I got this gun at wal-mart for 20 dollars canadian. I chose it over the Triple Aggressor which was $27 Cdn. The Blazer is actually a very amazing gun. It has 5 different nozzle settings for conserving water and drenching. It is very well balanced. If you use this gun against larger Cps guns, wait for the right moment to drench 'em because the Blazer has quite a long shot time. The pump on this weapon is well made because it is tracked. Mobility is alright; You can run with it without it weighing you down. This gun would be good for a sniper because of its range and water conservation. Some downsides is that the water tank is opaque. Also, the electric pressure gauge switch is located behind the trigger so while pumping you waste batteries. I don't really mind if I waste batteries because I got recharchable ones, but I wrote this down for you.

Personally, I think this is the best gun of this year because The range is great and it's fun!
