The Super Soaker XP 35 is a later-released pistol-sized water blaster, released in 1995 by Larami Ltd. Despite its pistol-styling, its performance is quite solid for its size. (Note: the model tested is secondhand and fairly old (roughly 12 years old at the time of testing; whether a brand new stock XP 35 would perform the same way needs to be verified.)
The Blaster ::
The XP 35 has a single, well-made nozzle powered by the pressurized reservoir behind. The stream produced has a good, solid feel to it with output and power roughly equivalent to that of an Super Soaker XP 70. Measurements on the output do rate this nozzle at roughly 1.0x which is rather impressive for a blaster roughly the size of a Super Soaker XP 40 / XP240.
The pump for the XP 35 has a good length to it. As such, it is quite effective at pressurizing the reservoir fairly quickly. Being forward-mounted, the pump should not be left out for extended periods of time as it is more prone to being accidentally damaged in this position. Once fully charged, the XP 35 is able to make use of the majority of its reservoir without needing to pump again.
The trigger and grip area are fairly typical for soakers made in this era. The trigger pull was smooth, provided a decent amount of resistance to prevent undesired firing while not being overly strenuous to use. Overall, the trigger does feel quite solid and durable.
The reservoir on the XP 35 holds a respectable amount of water for a blaster of its size. Within the reservoir sits the long intake tube with a weighted intake opening, allowing the XP 35 to use the majority of its water supply. As in many other earlier soakers, the reservoir must be completely removed to fill. Despite its age, the O-ring on the reservoir was still in slightly rougher shape, showing some signs of wear. The reservoir is somewhat difficult to attach and remove, but this may also be due to the age of the blaster and wear on the O-ring.
As a whole, Super Soaker XP 35 is a good, light-weight soaker. The main nozzle and firing chamber provide respectable power. A standard, no-frills stock soaker of its time, the XP 35 performs well. Though lighter than its Super Soaker XP 55 and Super Soaker XP 150 brethren, the XP 35 would still have provided good back-up protection, scouting runs, or even be used during light soaking campaigns. Capable of coping with most small-to-mid-sized air-pressure-based soakers, the XP 35 would be easily overpowered by larger air-pressure soakers as well as the majority of CPS and related types of blasters.
Durable, light, and offers good power for its size. Stream produced quite cohesive. Pump fairly sturdy and effective.
Pressurized reservoir prevents pre-pressurizing or refilling when pressurized. No strap or holster.
