Mighty Blaster Review
When Mighty Blaster was first heavily advertised in 2015, it was touted as a “Fireman’s Nozzle” for its ability to deliver a high-pressure stream of water. Reviews were ultimately lukewarm, but Mighty Blaster continued to advertise into 2016. By 2017, the Mighty Blaster website had gone offline, but the product could still be found in stores, and it became an add-on option for those wanting to buy the Hercules Hose online.
Because there has been a slight uptick in renewed interest, I thought it would be worth re-examining Mighty Blaster, and comparing it against a couple of other nozzles.
The first thing I noticed is that the design and packaging have changed slightly since 2015. There was originally an on/off switch on the bottom of the unit, which has since been removed. Perhaps the makers realized this was an unnecessary feature.
In my attempt to try to be as fair as possible, I put Mighty Blaster up against two other Nozzles: a $5 Gilmour model that I found at Target, and the nozzle included with the Metal Garden Hose. To be even more extensive, I tried all three nozzles on the three As Seen on TV hoses from 2017: Hercules Hose, Metal Garden Hose, and Pocket Hose Brass Bullet.
To use Mighty Blaster, you simply attach it to your hose and turn the knob in order to open up the water pressure. As you can see in the video below, Mighty Blaster didn’t outperform the other two nozzles, and in fact performed behind them. The Metal Garden Hose nozzle shot a stream with the most distance, followed by the Gilmour, and then Mighty Blaster. Additionally, the Gilmour offers numerous settings to deliver a variety of spray patterns, which Mighty Blaster does not.
In the end, I’m glad to see the price of Mighty Blaster down below $10 at some retailers, but I still don’t think it is a better product than the $5 Gilmour.
