MHvZ Game Report 6/5/17


We had some solid games today at MHvZ. The on-off rain did dirsupt play a little, however we managed to miss the majority of it.

Review: Star Wars Jyn Erso Deluxe Blaster

The release of Rogue One brought with it, among other merchandise, a new set of Star Wars Nerf blasters. The Jyn Erso blaster is the most expensive general release one, and the only one of the three that offered any practical potential use. Due to its insanely high retail price, I put off buying it until they were discounted to half price at my local BigW. Is it worth it, even at half price?

Mod: RapidPDW Overhaul


My barrelless RS, the RapidPDW, was my first Rapidstrike rewire, utilising stock motors and some stock switches off a 2S battery. Since then however, I have completed no less than four complete Rapidstrike builds (one of which was not my own), and the RapidPDW was left on my blaster rack collecting dust. I finally got around to giving it a motor upgrade.

BlasterTech Parts: Rapidstrike Mag Release, 5kg Elite Spring


I recently ordered a couple of things from BlasterTech (BT). Within that package was a Worker Stryfe mag release, a Hellverine (Hellcat mislabelled as Wolverine), 2 BT Rapidstrike mag releases and a BT Elite 5kg spring. I've covered the Worker mag release and Hellcats before, so this post will be focusing on the RS mag release and the Elite 5kg spring.

Mod: Artifact Motor as a Rapidstrike Pusher


The Artifact motor is the fastest motor created specifically for Nerfing purposes. It is rated to 50k RPM at 7.4V, significantly beyond the next closest of the MTB Wolverine Mk2 or Honey Badger, at around 45k RPM at 7.4V. The Artifact motor is also an odd size, being a little longer than the traditional 130 motor, but significantly shorter than the long 180 motor.

2016 Nerf Roundup

I somehow forgot to make this roundup post at the end of 2016, so here it is, two months late.
2016 was an up-and-down year for Nerf, there were some good releases, and some not-so-good releases. Non-Nerf brands had a fantastic year however, with both Buzz Bee and Dart Zone releasing some real winners.
