Review: Nerf Zombie Strike Sledgefire (grey trigger)

Now for a different Nerf line, here's a review of the Zombie Strike Sledgefire. Sorry it took so long to get this review done.

The Sledgefire was one of the two blasters in Zombie Strike's first wave back in late 2013. Like its partner the Hammershot, the Sledgefire is a completely new design rather than a modified version of an older blaster. Unlike every other Nerf blaster though, the Sledgefire uses shells to allow for fast reloading of multiple darts. This concept has been around for a while, primarily from Buzz Bee, but has had mixed opinions. Some like the novelty/realism factor of the shells, while others hated how they drastically increased reloading time. So how does the Sledgefire stack up as a shell using blaster?

Review: Nerf Elite XD Demolisher 2 in 1 (22m grey trigger Aus)

The Demolisher 2 in 1 is one of the first Elite blasters to be released in the "XD" line, which claims to have 22m range here in Aus, as opposed to the old 20m range claim. So does the Demo live up to this claim?

Pic Spam: Nerf N-Strike Longshot CS-6 (Blue)

Among other things, I received a blue Longshot from the US. I'm not going to review it since I already reviewed the yellow Longshot here, but I can give you all sorts of pretty pictures of the blue.
Note that the blue Longshot retail package contains 2 yellow 6 dart clips, while the yellow Longshot contains just 1 orange 6 dart clip.
As far as I'm aware, the blue Longshot never made it to Australia for retail, hence its high value among Aussies.

HFCBE: Nerf Elite XD Demolisher 2 in 1

I do have a Demo review in the works, it'll take a couple days to get all the pictures and type it all up, but in the meantime here's a video of how fast you can empty a Demo.

Time: 1.833
No. darts: 18
ROF: 9.27dps or 556.5dpm

The Demolisher is the only blaster I've used so far that gets a ROF anywhere near that of a Magstrike, which is impressive considering the Demo is semi auto. It beats both the Stryfe and Rayven, though I've yet to test the Rayven with trigger mods for a smoother/easier trigger pull.

Review: Buzz Bee Extreme Air Max 1

While Nerf has seemngly forsaken the air tank/bladder in favour of the springer and flywheeler, Buzz Bee is here to save the day with their Air Max line of air tanked dart blasters. The smallest of these is the Air Max 1, formerly known as the Panther.
Once again, many thanks to Buzz Bee Toys for sending the Air Max blasters to me for review! These are US release blasters, I believe most of the world gets weaker blasters, and from what I've been told Australia isn't getting a regular retail release of Air Max blasters at all.
