Review:

This gun is very unique from other water guns. It doesn't shoot just plain water - It shoots water-absorbed balls called wet ballz. Overall, it's not worth buying, but I'll write a review anyway.

This blaster is pistol sized, and is spring powered. It works more like a nerf gun than a water gun, although it doesn't have a trigger; you just pull back the plunger in the back and let go. Normally, this would give it bad accuracy, but considering how inacurate it already is, it doesn't really matter. It would be nice it it had a trigger though. It feels really nice and solid, although its handle is a bit uncomfortable.

Wet ballz are what it uses for ammo. They're basically just wedding water pearls. They are made by sticking tiny H2Grow ammo beads in water. After several hours, they grow into wet ballz. They hardly get you wet, making this gun only useful for 1HK games where you're out if you get even slightly wet. When you first get the blaster, it comes with a clip (see below) of pre-grown wet ballz, and a few packets of the ammo beads.

You load it by sticking a "clip" full of wet ballz on the top of the gun. The clip is just a small container full of wet ballz. You load the clip by sliding it onto the top of the blaster, which opens a hole on the clip, and a hole on the gun, which allows wet balls to feed into the gun.

The clip is gravity fed. When you pull the plunger back, a vacuum-powered piston thing pushes open a hole inside the gun, and about one to three wet ballz fall into it. The wet ball(z) are now chambered. Then when you let go of the plunger, the piston pushes the ball(z) out. Unfortunately, this blaster isn't powerful enough to actually make the ballz "Xplode" on impact.

There is a spring-loaded door in the muzzle of the blaster. This is the worst thing about it. The door pops most of the wet ballz when they shoot out. I had to tweak my XBlaster to get it to really shoot.

Overall, this is pretty bad. It doesn't even shoot properly unless disable the muzzle door. It feels pretty solid, but it only comes with one clip, and it takes 4 hours for the beads to grow so you can shoot it again. Extra clips are availible though, and if you buy a bigger gun, you get an ammo storage thing (called an ammo depot). Range is okay, but only if you take out the muzzle door. It doesn't have a trigger, and is very inacurate. Also, it doesn't work if you point it downward.

Pros:

Nice solid feel; okay range; uses clips; shoots 1-3 or more ballz at the same time; it's cool; comes with pre-made wet ballz in the clip

Cons:

Handle is kind of uncomfortable; clip is gravity-fed, so you can't hold it sideways or upside-down; cannot point blaster downwards; wet ballz break in the muzzle; plunger hits your hand if you have it turned vertical; wet ballz take forever to grow; only comes with one clip; inaccurate; no trigger; does not include ammo depot; only works if you have wet ballz; wet ballz are hardly wet; blaster isn't powerful enough to make wet ballz break
