Review: Buzz Bee Rail Raider (15m) [Monorail Blaster]

The Rail Raider (aka Monorail Blaster) is a rather unique blaster, fed by an internal tube magazine. This is a feeding mechanism that is near non-existant in foam blasters, with the only comparable blaster that comes to mind being the disc-firing Fusefire. Naturally the reveal of this blaster was met with much hype and anticipation.

Disclaimer: This blaster was sent to me for review by Buzz Bee Toys. Despite their contribution, I will do my best to ensure that this review remains as objective and unbiased as possible.

Review: Lightake/NFstrike 15-Dart Mags

With the recent rise of Lightake/NFstrike, there is yet another way to source various aftermarket Nerf parts from China. On top of reselling many products from other manufacturers (including Worker and Artifact), Lightake/NFstrike also produce their own Nerf-compatible mags. This review will be covering their two 15-dart mags.
Disclaimer: Lightake has sent me a package of products to review, however the mags in this review were purchased with my own money.

Mod: Flat Top Cam ECS with Artifact Cage

A continuation of my Cam mods. I didn't like the bulky top section that was vacated as I removed the camera system, and I don't like stock flywheel cages.

Review: Worker Retaliator Bolt

I'm not sure when Worker released these, but I only became aware of their existence fairly recently. As someone who (currently) exclusively uses full length darts and doesn't do much high velocity stuff, these interest me far more than short dart breeches and mags, expanded plunger tubes and so on. I ordered three of them from Lightake for about 4USD each, including postage.

Game Report: MHvZ 4/11/17

Another month, another Melbourne HvZ event. A variety of reasons resulted in a reduced amount of enjoyment for me personally, but the event overall went quite well otherwise.
This game report has been delayed significantly by my Uni exams, which are now over.

Mod: Knock-off Stryfe with Blade 180s

With the relative scarcity of Stryfes in Australia since Kmart stopped stocking them, I wanted to try out other options. This knock-off Stryfe, sourced from Aliexpress, cost me about 25AUD shipped, about the same as the Stryfe when it was still available at retail here.
I was initially saving this post until after I completed the review, but honestly I might never get around to that. This post is a lot easier, and also a lot more relevant for all my intentions with it.

Mod: Cam ECS with Neo Rhinos

The Cam ECS is a blaster I've always had my eye on, as its shell is quite nice, and as far as I'm aware it is also compatible with Stryfe flywheel cages. My problem was of course waiting for it to drop to a not-awful price, which I never saw when it was in stores. I jumped at the opportunity to acquire one for a more reasonable price second hand.
