Water Gun Innovation
Water guns can be fun but no one’s going to be scrambling for their wallets to buy one on Kickstarter. Not until the Spyra One came along that is.
At the time of writing, the Spyra One has garnered $375,612 of pledge money from 2,124 backers with 21 days to go. The goal was $58,174.
This is probably the first water gun that can shoot water bullets. How cool is that?
No more minutes of pumping just to squirt pathetic streams of water.
This is what the water gun of the 21st century should be.
The Spyra One has other cool features as well. There’s an auto-refill button that can get it to full tank in 14 seconds and a digital display that shows how much you have in the tank and the battery status.
Each water bullet is 30 ml and a full tank can accurately shoot 25 water bullets up to 25 ft (7.5 m).
Yes, the Nerf Super Soaker Squall Surge can shoot up to 35 ft (10.6 m) but it can probably only shoot accurate up to 5 m.
The integrated rechargeable battery can last a full day of water gun wars.
The tank system keeps the pressure constant until the last shot. The integrated pump repressurizes the water automatically during refill.
Pros of the SpyraLX Mechanical Water Blaster:
- SpyraBlast Technology: Offers powerful, individual water blasts with precision for enhanced gameplay.

- Manual Power: No need for batteries, always ready for use.
- Tactical Tank Indicator: Allows you to monitor the water level in the tank at any time.
- No need to pump in between shots: Once filled, you don't need to pump between shots, which makes it more convenient during water fights.
- Durable and lightweight: Survived multiple rough water fights.
Cons of the SpyraLX Mechanical Water Blaster:
- Limited Range: Advertised range of 50 feet but has an effective range of around 20-30 feet.
- Leakage: Some users have reported leakage issues, causing water to drain during use.
- Pumping required: Manual pumping needed for reloading and repressurizing, which might be tiring for some users.
- Delicate loading mechanism: Some users reported occasional stuck loading mechanism, making it potentially less suitable for younger children.
- Price: The water blaster is on the expensive side, which may not be suitable for all budgets.
Overall, the SpyraLX Mechanical Water Blaster offers powerful and precise water blasts, with quick reloading and no need for batteries. However, it does have some drawbacks, such as a limited range, occasional leakage, and the need for manual pumping.
