Unboxing a Package from Nerf (Spring 2014 Line) (Vote For the Next Review!)

My latest pack from Nerf is on the Mega, some of the Zombie Strike, and Super Soaker spring lines. Feel free to leave me a comment let me know what blaster you wanted reviewed next!

I already have some unboxing, firing, and range test videos. I can go into more indepth, game tested reviews for some of these blasters already.

Feel free to check below for some of my video coverage on the Crossfire Bow & Sidestrike Zombie Strike blasters.

Introducing: BlasterPro


Feature video on the AUTO FIRE E5000


Featue video on the PUMP ACTION S2500

Check out the new line from the makers of Xploderz, BlasterPro! BlasterPro uses the same ammo soaking system as Xploderz, and also uses a clip/mag loading system. The only difference that the BlasterPro guns now have triggers! A feature that was very missed and lacking from the Xploderz line. The Pump Action S2500 retails for $29.99, and the Auto Fire E5000 retails for $49.99. The ranges constantly get up to 75-80 feet, and each blaster comes with a zombie target, a couple of thousand rounds of ammo, and instructions. Check out their site for more info, and get familiar.

They sent me the Pump Action S2500, so I’ll have a review on that in a day or two.

A Basic (Nerf) Poll vol. 2

Hey everyone, Jason here. I’m going to be a little bit busier these two upcoming weeks, due to summer school and preparing for my Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies game on July 20th. In the meantime, could you just take this small poll for me? Helping me pick what content to post should help everyone that views my blog. You can select multiple answers if you want to. Thanks for your time!

Campaign to Camarillo 2012: Step 1 – Makin a List, Checkin it Twice

In preparation for the Camarillo Southern California Humans vs. Zombies event, I’ve compiled a kick start checklist of things that I should do or improve to prepare myself for this event. If my calculations are correct, I have 78 days left until the event, which takes place on July 20.

In no particular order:

Get a little bit more comfortable with my blaster of choice for this game, the Rayven.
Work on Cardo, at least 3 times a week, for 25-30 minutes each.
Start collecting and counting bad socks.
Learn how to roll them up, if there is a proper technique.
Finishing reading the Art of War.
Get Spectre barrel from other storage site.
Invite, and in some cases convince, friends to go.
Modify or improve Nerf Tac Vest and/or drop pouch loadout.
Sort good darts from bad darts. W & T Streamlines for the win, remember?
Possibly get different containers for good and bad darts?
Check which 18 dart drum clips rotate well, and which ones don’t.
Get a feel or find a way to track 18 dart clip usage.
(Most likely) buy GoPro Hero 2 camera and SD card to record footage of game.
Buy stronger voltage batteries, battery converter, case, charger, and multimeter from Chinese store (note to self, allow 3 to 4 weeks for shipping).

Thats about 15 or 16 things I need to do, some or continuous, others are one and done. Something tells me I won’t get them all done, but stay tuned and I keep you guys updated with blog posts.
