If you haven’t heard of Xplorer (can’t believe I’ve never posted about them on my site) their a Singapore Nerf Company specializing in modifying plunger based blasters for Stefans. The Longshot & Stampede are their most extensive work. They feature blaster kits, accessories, springs, and more on their site. Their Longshot Ultimate Upgrade Kit is said to go over 260 FPS (Feet Per Second) on their site. To put that into perspective, most modded flywheel blasters go about 85-110 FPS. Airsoft Guns indoors in Southern CA are often limited to 300-350 FPS.
While I’ve never bought anything from them (in part to their high prices) I did want to let you guys know about an event their hosting on June 8, 2014. Instead of a usual or assumed Nerf War of some sort, their doing a shooting/target challenge. People who enter must go through a timed challenge in which they shoot targets and try to compete for the highest times. You can RSVP and view the rules on their Facebook event here.
And the prizes? Their looking great. The top five finishers all get a prize of some sort.
1st Place: A Xshot Xplorer blaster. This is a new homemade blaster from the company, and details are scarce on it. However, you can view more information in this teaser video.
2nd Place: Xplorer Exclusive Ultimate Longshot Kit, 528 Singapore Dollar Value
3rd Place: Xplorer Longshot Trooper Kit, 268 Singapore Dollar Value
4th-5th Place: Sponsor Prizes
Entry fee is 60 Singapore Dollars. You can sign up on their site here.
It’s always a great thing to hear when Nerf Wars & Nerf Events are planned, and just as good when they go through without too many negative incidents. I hope their event goes well!
