Max-D, as its name may suggest, was designed as an expansion on the previous XP line, featuring improved ranges and durability of older soakers. Among the new mechanics was the addition of a new trigger system, which caused the triggers in this line to have very loud, clicking noises.
These trigger systems were not received within the Super Soaker community, as people soon discovered how the triggers were prone to breaking. The trigger system continued to be used on a few future lines after the Max-D line was dropped.
This line of Super Soakers was launched in 2002 to replace the XP line. Upon release of the line, Larami claimed that Max-D blasters were capable of out-ranging existing XP Super Soakers by nearly ten feet.
Due to the popularity of the line, several of the blasters are still sold today; the majority of the blasters within the series were continued on to later series, most notably the Max-D 3000 and Max-D 6000, both of which are still sold in the current Nerf Super Soaker series.

Retrieved on 2014-07-06. “Aqua-Zone testing showed that Max-D blasters had about a two to four foot advantage over XP’s of comparable size. Max-D blasters all incorporate a new trigger system that allows for the added range. Some have criticized the new trigger system, saying it is more fragile then the previous system. Many websites and forums reported of broken Max-D triggers upon their initial release in 2002.”
