If Nerf Fan Sites & Blogs Were NBA Players

Basketball & the NBA was one of my first passions growing up. Now a days I don’t play as much ball and tend to play Nerf more. But I follow the NBA more than ever. As someone who enjoys Nerf and plays/hosts games a decent amount, I often look to other sports to see how they relate to Nerf. After thinking to myself, what Nerf Fan Sites are like NBA players, I came up with this list of 10 popular Nerf sites and how they relate to NBA Players, Teams, or duos.

This list is based on my NBA & Nerf knowledge, each site’s accomplishments & what they do, and my own personal experiences with each person or site. I’ll be drawing parallels and similarities between these things and the basketball.

A Tricked Out Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 Thanks to a Few Friendly Nerf Sites (Video)

This is a sort of shoutout video thanking the people and their sites who made my latest Nerf War primary and product reviews possible.

White Stripped Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 thanks to Mike at Tactical Tag. I won his giveaway for his White Strip Painted Elite Rapidstrike CS-18.

The Sights are thanks to SlyDev. It’s their front and back sight, and I hope to have a review of those items in the future.

The Vertical Grip was thanks to Dorm Labs. It’s retractable, so you can use it as a grip, or put it back up when it’s not in use.

I also end the video by seeing if can shut the blaster down running it at 16.8v (4 Trustfires) and going through 3 18 dart mags.

Mega Centurion to be Released in Australia in October (News)


Small side note, can we get some official/new images released by Nerf so that I can stop using certain unoffical ones?

So apparently Australia is getting the Mega Centurion in October 2013. Crispy of SOFT did some digging recently, and posted his results.

(Crispy) So after checking with Hasbro AU for current Longshot numbers in Australia, they replied with this.

Hi Michael,

Unfortunately, Hasbro Australia no longer distributes this particular product.

The new range of Nerf Elite will have a comparable blaster; “The Centurian”, this will be available at retail stores in October 2013.

So, there is out Australian release date for our version of the Centurian. Get Excited.

It seems like his contact misspelled Centurion, but other then that the land down under has a release month now. Thanks to my affiliated site SOFT for breaking this news!

Nerfcast Episode 10: How to run a Nerf war feat. Basic Nerf

Josh and Shawn are joined by Jason of Basic Nerf to talk about how to run a Nerf War.

Updates every other Wednesday.

I recently got together with Josh and Shawn of Bay Area Urban Recreational Nerf (B.U.R.N.) to talk about how to organize and run a Nerf War. The three primary topics we discussed were location, the aspects of rules , and advertising. It was a pretty solid learning experience for me, but at the same time it was fun and I shared my own thoughts and taught them some stuff as well.

You can check out the podcast on Podbean or even iTunes as well if you don’t want to listen via Youtube.

MyLastDart gets May 15, 2013 as updated Elite Alpha Trooper USA Release Date

MyLastDart has talked with a contact of his at Target, and he’s getting a May 15, 2013 as an estimated release date for this blaster being released in USA stores. You can check his original post here, so keep your eyes and ears open around this date for the blaster finally coming out!

The top blaster is the Elite Alpha Trooper’s, and the bottom is the elite Retaliator’s.

MyLastDart recently got his own Elite Trooper’s in the mail today! Glad to see their finally getting out there more and more. You can also check his post for a chance to win your very own Elite Alpha Trooper! It’ll be nice to see this blaster on shelves on Target soon.

As for the plunger system and internals, it looks very similar to the Retaliator, and MyLastDart also says that it has the same spring as the Retaliator. Could these blasters have very similar mod potential? I’m just wondering how much spring load the metal priming bar on the Elite Alpha Trooper will be able to take without breaking or bending.
