About Spyra

Spyra One is the first water gun to shoot powerful, individual water bullets instead of a single stream of water. Each water bullet equals the amount of a shot glass and clearly hits targets up to 7 meters (23ft)/Powershot 9 meters (30ft) away. The maximum range of the Spyra One is 13 meters (43ft)/ Powershot 15 meters (49ft). The tank holds 24 water bullets which are presented as volume in percent on its digital display.

An automatic integrated pump refills and repressurizes the Spyra One in just 10.0 seconds when its front tip is held into water.

There is no need to pump up the water gun anymore: a special tank technology guarantees full pressure and range from the first to the last shot. The Spyra One is powered by a rechargeable, integrated battery that lasts for a whole day of playing. Spyra One is also the first water gun in the world to enable immersive tactical teamplay without the need of expensive supplies. With Spyra One, anyone can start a water fight anywhere.
