Buzz Bee Big Blast Review

Another non-Nerf blaster, the Buzz Bee Big Blast (or 4B) is one of the most popular Buzz Bee blasters, mainly because modders can make it into a lethal dart sniper with very basic mods (ie giving it a dart firing barrel...and that's it). However, in stock condition, depending on whether you get gen. 1 or 2, it fires rockets 9-12m. The gen.1 blaster took around 8 pumps to fill the tank, but was able to shoot rockets around 12m. The gen 2 (the one I have) only takes 3-4 pumps, but only shoots around 10m. Give it it's due, though, because 10m range with a ROCKET is rather impressive at only 3-4 pumps.

Buzz Bee Belt Blaster Review

Today, I'm peeling away from Nerf to talk about a rival company, Buzz Bee. They are one of the legitimate rival companies (ie don't just take Nerf stuff, repaint and slightly alter) and some of their designs are quite good. The blaster I am reviewing is one of those.

Nerf Reflex IX-1 Review

The Reflex is one of the smallest spring-powered blaster that Nerf offers. It also happens to be surprisingly powerful. Mine can surpass Recons, Mavericks, Deploys, Stampedes, this list continues. It is roughly on-par with a stock AT. However, being reverse plunger, it is out-ranged by LS's. The Reflex is available in two forms: a 6-pack with 2 darts per blaster, and a single pack with 3 darts. The 6-pack is available for $50, and the single for $7. You can do the maths yourself.

Nerf Barricade RV-10 Review

This is a first for Nerf, the Barricade being 'flywheel' powered. Basically, this means that two wheels spin very fast not very far apart, so the dart gets caught in between the two flywheels and gets thrown forward. Because the flywheels are vertical, as opposed to horizontal (as you find in Buzz Bee stuff), there is less spray, more accuracy and occasionally more range. Obviously, because it's electronically powered, the higher the voltage, the more powerful the blaster is. And the more annoying the noise is.

Custom Scope 1: Large ACOG

Fed up of the single-reticule Nerf scopes? Want to have a (very slightly) functional scope without buying a real scope? This is the answer: make your own! This is the first custom scope I made. It slides on and off tactical rails with ease. Also, the cost for materials is far less than it would cost for any Nerf scope or Rifle scope.

This post is essentially a list of all the stuff released in 2010 that I'm aware of.

Nerf Magstrike AS-10 Review + Usage Tips

The Magstrike creates one of the most intimidating noises in Nerf Wars, with it's realistic shooting-type noises. Ironically despite its name, the Magstrike actually uses what are technically clips.

Certain tips also apply to EX and IX blasters (and all Dart Tag blasters).

Welcome to Nerf Blasters and Accessories!
This blog was inspired by good Nerf blogs such as:
Urban Taggers
SG Nerf
Nerf Mods & Reviews

In this blog, I wIll post reviews on blasters I have or have experience with, as well as accessories. This is not really a news site, as other blogs cover those segments well enough.
I'll also post up some of my custom-made stuff that I occasionally use. They are mostly scopes as Nerf's aren't functional the way mine are.

I will generally only post one pic per post, as the above sites already give excellent pics, and 2 minutes on Google Images works as well. (for reviews)

Do note that in my reviews, I measure range when the blaster is parallel to the ground, and the ground is relatively level, unless otherwise stated.

These reviews are generally aimed at non-modders, beginners (aka n00bs and newbies) and 'casual' players. The general aim of this blog is to help 'newbie' Nerfers decide what blaster they should get next, and what blasters they should avoid.

NEVER leave your blaster cocked. This will shrink the size of the spring (over time) and reduce the power of the blaster.
