The Super Soaker Triple Aggressor is a good concept soaker that could have been so much more. First, we shall begin with what it offers. The Triple Aggressor is a potent mid-sized air-pressure-based soaker that packs a good strength stream. Size-wise, it is comparable to the Super Soaker CPS 2100 and carries just as much water in its reservoir.

iS SuperSoaker tripleaggressor_02tbStructurally, the Triple Aggressor feels quite solid except, perhaps, for the forward-mounted pump-handle. The trigger-grip area is rubberized for a much more comfortable hold while the forward part of the blaster features an area behind the pump that is textured for easy gripping and supporting the blaster when not pumping. However, there is no way to easily support the blaster when refilling the reservoir. A top-handle for a blaster of this size would have been nice to have. The reservoir does, however, feature a Fast-Fill cap, meaning the cap does not need to be completely removed if being filled from a hose; instead, one just must rotate the cap to line up the arrow with the 'Fill' position indicated. Unfortunately, if the water pressure is not strong enough, the Fast-Fill cap does not operate as intended.

The Triple Aggressor derives its name from the three methods of dispensing water at one's disposal while using this blaster. The primary nozzle yields a solid effective 2x stream and is powered by a separate firing chamber. On the left side of the Triple Aggressor are also two valve switches which also draw pressure from the firing chamber.

iS SuperSoaker tripleaggressor_12tbOpening the more forward one pushes pressurized water into the mini-blaster: a completely removeable back-up blaster that gives off one short, but surprisingly potent shot. The mini-blaster is fairly easily attached and removed from the main blaster and is held in place by a well-places spring-based clip. Unfortunately, the mini-blaster can only be charged by the parent blaster. As well, there is no easy way to empty the lingering water content that ends up trapped inside the mini-blaster after shooting. The most effective way to drain the mini-blaster is to shake it nozzle-downward while depressing its trigger.

iS SuperSoaker tripleaggressor_19tbThe second of the switch-valves releases water from the firing chamber to saturate the SoakerBall device found at the base of the blaster. The SoakerBall is basically a cloth-covered sponge that can be removed from the blaster and thrown at another, akin to other re-useable water balloon-like devices. It should be noted that the SoakerBall appears to hold water better if it is premoistened as opposed to attempting to fill when dry (when dry, opening the valve results in some of the water running off the sides of the SoakerBall and onto the ground as opposed to entering the device). It is, however, more recommendable to instead pre-soak the SoakerBall in water so that one does not need to sacrifice shot time. The SoakerBall holder appears to do a good job at keeping a wet SoakerBall mostly full. That said, while the concept of having a reuseable water balloon holder and filler is great, the problem here is that the Triple Aggressor has no shoulder strap. Thus, there is no easy way to single-handedly remove the SoakerBall and throw it while trying to yield the blaster in one's other hand.

Overall, the Super Soaker Triple Aggressor is a decent mid-sized blaster with a good useable lifetime during a water fight. Its multiple methods of dispensing water is a nice idea: the mini-blaster works quite well while the SoakerBall works, but is awkward to use if still holding the main blaster. Despite this blaster's limitations, the Triple Aggressor still makes for a good companion on the field.

Pros

Potent main stream with very good reservoir capacity. Mini-blaster both nice to have and surprisingly effective. Other details such as the rubberized grip and general solid feel make this blaster comfortable to use.

Cons

Air-pressure as opposed to CPS-pressure based. No easy way to empty water from the mini-blaster after use. SoakerBall concept nice, but lack of shoulder strap makes using the SoakerBall during a water fight quite difficult unless one puts the entire blaster down for a moment. Firing chamber relatively small for a soaker of its size.
