The Nerf Super Soaker XP30-AP is a modern re-release of the original Super Soaker SS 30 (1991). This water blaster has not been further tested, thus limited information is available about its actual performance.
Brief Overview .:
The Nerf Super Soaker XP30-AP appears to be a remake, but updated mold on the original Super Soaker SS 30. The handle appears a little thicker, the trigger is larger, the pump grip is beefier, and some other stylistic detailing differs from the original. On the packaging, Hasbro is highlighting the fact that the reservoir is made from recycled plastic (though one wonders if that is the case, why not make the majority or allof the water blaster from recycled plastic?)
As an aside, it s interesting that the XP30-AP is mounted in its packaging with its pump extended. It may just be to reduce the number of ties needed to secure the water blaster to its box, but may also have some benefit regarding being better for the internal pump rod seals. When storing water blasters, it is preferred to have pumps slightly extended such that one can push the pump in instead of having to pull it outwards, especially if the rubber seal/O-rings have gotten slightly stuck to the inner-side of the pump.
Given its sturdier build, the performance of the XP30-AP is probably slightly better than the original Super Soaker SS 30. Granted, with the limited reservoir capacity, having higher output also means that battlefield lifetime becomes shorter.
Overall, the Nerf Super Soaker XP30-AP probably makes for a good back-up blaster (or primary in very small skirmishes).
* Note: at present, this blaster is being kept in its original packaging and iSoaker.com has no plans to do additional testing
Decent build; easy to operate; can continually shoot as long as sufficient pressure and water remain
