Anyone remember that Super Soaker with the extra tank on the back?
If you are thinking now, “umm, do they mean the Larami Super Soaker SS 300 with the rocketpack tank on the back, or the Super Soaker CPS 3000 with the insane 8-liter backpack?*” then you are, indeed, a big nerd. Second, and more importantly, you might have enough experience to shed some light on a debate we are having at Spyra Headquarters.
Which is: what is the ideal solution to the tank weight vs. refilling dilemma?
We are actually divided on the issue. Here is how the discussion usually goes.
The water gun weight versus tank capacity dilemma
- Sebastian: “I like the Spyra One to be a piece of sports equipment. We should make it as light as possible so you can run around. If you want to refill, run back to the base and refill before the others get you!”
- Rike: “Actually, I really like the powerful feel of a heavy water gun with a big tank. And who wants to run around much in the heat of summer anyways?”
- Data: “Beep beep.” [Look at the nice part I just finished printing.]
- The Doktor: “You know, actually the total amount of water is not as important as the number of shots you can give off from a tank of a certain volume, which is calculated by dividing the total amount of water by the…”
- Markus: “…can’t we just develop a cool system to refill the tank faster so we have a light water gun and don’t spend too much time at the water source?”
- Rike: “Why don’t we ask people what they prefer?”
- Sebastian: “Aha! Make it so!”
- Rike: [is typing this blog post now]
