More Motor Mods: Banshee'd Rapid Red, Bladed Rapidstrike

Couple more motor mods I've done. Now that all of these are done, I can keep working on my Bullpup Rapidstrike.

Review: Buzz Bee Ultra Tek 4/Wizard + Internals (15m Aus)

Continuing with the Ultra Tek reviews, we have the Ultra Tek 4, or Wizard. My UT4s came in a two-pack, which I believe is standard for the UT4.
Again, many thanks to Buzz Bee Toys for sending these Ultra Tek blasters for review, and as usual note that their kind gesture does not affect this review in any way.

Game Report 19/7/15 - Rapidstrike Domination, Crossbolt/Longstrike Woes

I had a game with a few of my friends on the 19th, but we played less games than usual and it was more of a casual type, instead playing a lot of SSB4. I'll still make a few notes on the games and blasters, but this post will be more focused than most on the Rapidstrike, Crossbolt and Longstrike.

Review: Buzz Bee Air Max 6

The AM6 is another one of Buzz Bee's air powered Air Max blasters. Like its other Air Max brethren it's not widely available in Australia, so I'm reviewing the US-release version.
Like the other Air Max blasters, the AM6 was kindly sent to me by Buzz Bee for review, and as usual their contribution has no effect on the review (besides permitting it to exist).

Review: Buzz Bee Ultra Tek 3/Star (15m Aus) + Internals & Ultra Tek Darts

When Nerf first released the Elite line, they bumped up the standard for blaster ranges, making a lot of the non-Nerf market obsolete range wise. Now Buzz Bee has joined in the bumped up range claims with their Ultra Tek line, the smallest offering being the Ultra Tek 3/Star.
The Ultra Tek blasters were kindly sent to me by Buzz Bee for review as they're yet to hit Aussie stores, however their contribution will not affect the review in any way.

Review: Blastersmiths UK Battle Belt (MkI)

Back when I used the Nerf-made tactical vest, I found some serious flaws in its abilities. While it could hold 6 dart clips (mags) ok, it struggled with anything larger, with 12 and 18 dart clips (mags) frequently falling out. As such, I needed a new piece of tactical gear that would be able to properly hold 12/18 dart clips (mags), and due to my financial situation required it as cheap as possible.
Enter the BSUK Battle Belt (MkI).

Game Report 8/7/15

3 events in 5 days, that's a heck of a coincidence. This one was done with just my friends, no special group or anything. The blaster set is totally different to the Equalz Dee games, more akin to a toned-down MHvZ blaster set.

Game Report 7/7/15

Back to Equalz Dee for this event.
Apologies for this pic, I didn't forget to take one until the very end when it was dark and we were packing up.

Game Report 4/7/15

I went to my first Melbourne HvZ event today with a friend. Peak attendance was probably in the 20s, though I wasn't counting at any point.

Review: Nerf Mega Bigshock (grey trigger)

Every Nerf series needs a Jolt variant or repaint. The Elite and ZS lines got basically straight repaints, while the Rebelle line got a bunch of reshells. Now the Mega line has its Jolt in the form of the Bigshock.
