The Helix is a piston-based soaker that advertises "soaking with a new twist". This is due to its spinning nozzles, which can be adjusted by turning the nozzles clockwise or counterclockwise to get to each position. The nozzles fire off two streams which, while the soaker is being pumped inward, spin the streams, very similar to that of the later Tornado Strike.
Alongside the Vaporizer, it was the only piston-based soaker of the series. It was the longest-lasting soaker out of the entire SoakerTag lineup.
It was originally released in 2004. Starting in 2006 with the Max Infusion series, the soaker was renamed Max Infusion Helix. The Helix had several other re-releases into the 2005 SoakerTag Elite series, the 2008 unnamed series, and the 2010 Soaker Wars series.
The reason for it not being continued into the Nerf Super Soaker line is possibly because its position and techniques were replaced by the Tornado Strike.
In 2007, the Helix was used as a promotional soaker for the film Spider-Man 3, under the name Max Infusion Water Soaker.
The Helix has been released with the following color schemes:
- Purple and white
- Red and white
- SoakerTag Elite (blue and orange)
- Spider-Man 3 (red and blue)
- 2008 series (blue and black)
- Soaker Wars (blue and gray)
- White and orange
- Blue and green
- The fill cap is spring-loaded and self-sealing.
- The newer Soaker Wars version has a larger tank opening and cap, and is also reverse-threaded.
