iS_waterwarriors_kwikgripbox_01tbThe Water Warriors Kwik Grip models by Buzz Bee Toys are the smallest water blasters produced for the Water Warriors line in 2004.Coming in four differing colour schemes, the Kwik Grips are simple trigger-plunger-based soakers, squirting each time the trigger is pulled. Because of this, the power and range of the Kwik Grips are rather limited, but as these blasters are meant for those 3 years of age and up, they do server their purpose as an introductory soaker.

The reservoirs on the Kwik Grips hold a respectable amount of water despite its overall size. The positioning of the intake hole also allows the bulk of the reservoir's contents to be used. The reservoir cap is nicely tethered to the blaster, preventing its loss. However, as the reservoir is actually comprised of two moulded pieces of plastic fused together, one Kwik Grip tested appeared to have a minor leak at the joint resulting in some water loss through the body of the blaster.

Interestingly, all the Kwik Grip models also come with a belt clip. The clip attaches to both the grip and trigger of the blaster, preventing accidental firing while attached. The clip holds the blaster rather snugly in place, thus a little care is needed when removing the blaster from the clip to prevent over-straining the trigger. Strengthwise, the clip, itself, is quite stable and not likely to break easily.

Overall, the Water Warriors Kwik Grip blasters are a good introductory blaster as well as a fun surprise blaster for sneak attacks indoors and out. Just do not attempt charging anyone using anything larger than a Super Soaker XP 215.

Pros

Small, easily concealable, quick-firing blaster. Decent capacity reservoir for the blaster's size and tethered cap. Belt clip a definite bonus.

Cons

Small and easily outclassed by most larger water blasters out there.
