It 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, but was re-released several times into the 2005 SoakerTag Elite line, the 2006 Max Infusion line, the 2008 unnamed line, and was re-released in 2010 under the Soaker Wars line. It was not continued into the 2011 series line and is assumed to be dropped from future plans.
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. Starting in 2006 with the Max Infusion line, the soaker was renamed Max Infusion Helix.
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
- Blue and orange (SoakerTag Elite)
- Red and blue (Promotional)
- Blue and black (2008 series)
- Blue and gray (Soaker Wars)
- White and orange
