|Blue Trigger Speedload 6 from Bradi28|
firing video of this and, while it does sound like it has some more power to it, these tests don't show us the actual range they get.
Why would I care so much about better ranges in Dart Tag blasters? Think about it this way: Nerf has been expanding ranges on blasters recently with the flagship of their "New-and-improved" ranges being the highly anticipated N-Strike Elite lineup. Everyone has been wondering HOW Nerf is claiming 75 ft ranges on these new blasters, but I think we may have clues in these supposedly higher-powered Dart Tag blasters with answers to this. By finding out how the Sharp Shot and Speedload 6 have been tweaked, we might get an idea of what kinds of changes Nerf has made to the Recon and Raider that have been retooled as the Retaliator and Rampage in the Elite lineup coming out in August of 2012.
Swarmfire on the UK site for Toys R Us has the blue trigger, but no mention of better ranges. It's confusing and there isn't much hard information out there as far as ranges go or if this only applies to the Sharp Shot. I haven't been able to find information about the Speedswarm and Speedload 6 blue trigger variants to see if they too have longer ranges.
Anyone else got hard intel on these fellas? Even if it's just the Sharp Shot that's got the upgraded ranges, I'd like to know more!
