So if you remember my post about the N-Strike Elite XD line bringing new standards to Nerf’s Elite ranges, you would have probably been excited about it like most fans. It seems like 75 feet to 90 (angled, stock measurements of course) would be very noticeable.
However, fan Mod blog “Derp Mods” has done some range tests with an Elite XD Triad, and the results are disappointing, and also a bit confusing. Check the rest of the post for more info and a possible explanation.

In my attempt to see if any of the major USA retailers are selling exclusive store blasters, I figured I’d gather up all the online listings I could find. Also since we don’t really have a name for these batch of blasters, mags, and darts that just got released, I’ll just be sticking them in the “2012–2013 Winter release” category for now.

N-Strike Elite Stryfe: Walmart No.: 550742135
Out of the new items, I’ve only managed to see the Firestrike so far at Walmart.
RandomShadow09 once again comes though with some new info. This time, he order the Triad from amazon, and he’s here to show off some retail packaging. I still can’t believe they were charging $20 on Amazon though.
Randomshadow09 posted this news on the HvZ Forums a couple of days ago. Theres no product description, but it looks like Nerf is finally selling this blaster for all to buy, product description below.
Micro Triad EX-3 blaster has mega power
Blaster knows which barrel is loaded
Fires darts up to 75′
Cocking handle readies your shot

Not really much of a description, but if you keep up with the NIC, you’ll already know much more about this blaster. In the meantime check out Randomshadow09’s range test of the blaster below.
