The Water Warriors Shark is a pump-action blaster released in 2008 by Buzz Bee Toys Inc. The Shark is similar in size and shape to the Water Warriors Gremlin, but performs slightly better. While not a heavy hitter, the Water Warriors Shark makes for a respectable light piston-based water blaster.
The Blaster ::
The Shark features a single, standard-sized nozzle. Its nozzle is roughly the same dimensions as that of the Water Warriors Gremlin and, being a piston-based water blaster as well, produces a similarly smooth stream. That said, the Shark's stream does feel slightly more substantial overall.
The pump on the Shark is located just below the nozzle region, the pump handle comprising the yellow area on the model tested. The Shark's pump is semi-tracked and has a relatively sturdy feel to it. As the pump grip lacks significant shape or texturing, it is slightly slippery when wet. Pump volume, however, is actually greater than that of the Gremlin, being more or less on par with standard pressurized water blaster pump volumes. More water per pump means just slightly longer shot time per stroke and slightly more time to increase the force applied to the stream before the pump completes its cycle.
The trigger and grip area of the Shark is open and comfortable to hold. The trigger, itself, is purely ornamental, but does add to the comfort and feel when holding the blaster.While the grip, itself, has no significant texturing, its shape and the blaster's overall small size makes it easy to hold.
The Reservoir ::
The Shark holds a decent amount of water for a blaster its size. Granted, the Shark's thin profile suggests that it could have had a larger reservoir were it made wider. However, considering the Shark is virtually a reservoir with a pump, nozzle, and grip attached to it, the Shark does make good use of the space it occupies. As with many of the other piston-based blasters in the Water Warriors line, the Shark's reservoir is filled through a small opening that is sealed using a tethered snap-cap. This cap is decent at preventing water from splashing out when moving, but its seal is not perfect, thus may leak out water if the blaster is left on its side for prolonged periods of time.
As a whole, the Water Warriors Shark is a decent piston-based water blaster. Being an apparent updated version of the Water Warriors Wasp, the Water Warriors Shark sports a larger pump volume and slightly better stream performance. That said, being a relatively small piston-based blaster, the Shark is no match for any true continuous stream or larger-stream piston-based water blasters. Good for scouting, small water fights, backup, or perhaps as a last-stand blaster, the Water Warriors Shark can provide a good soak for its size and price.
Simple styling, clean lines, and good solid feel to the soaker. Good capacity and decent output for a blaster its size.
Limited output compared to small air-pressure-based blasters. No strap or holster. Requires two hands to use; cannot be dual-wielded. Snap-cap on reservoir not completely water tight.
