The attempt to make old-age better:
The N-Strike Elite Nerf Strongarm should remind one or the other of the Nerfs already at first sight of something old-known. As the title suggests, Hasbro has tried to make a successor to the Nerf Maverick REV-6, an elite model. If you have succeeded, we will report you in this review. Once again, remember a few facts about the previous model Maverick REV-6: It is easy to carry, easy to load, flexible in modding, does not block and looks hot.
Design and ergonomics
The Elite Nerf Strongarm is slightly longer than its predecessor model, but it does not differ from the shape and weight of the REV-6. The appearance is given a special appeal by the special color, typical of the elite models. However, there are other small differences than just the color.
The Strongarm, in a gun shape, is excellent in hand, and because of its size also offers tremendous flexibility and agility – no matter on which terrain you fight your Nerf battles, the Nerf Strongarm will help you. Optimal, of course, it makes itself in narrow combat areas, where its mobility is exceptional.
In addition to some improvements, there is also a small flaw. Thus, the Nerf Strongarm feels slightly more clumsy compared to the REV-6 due to the small (but fine) difference in size. Apart from this, the Nerf Strongarm is a successful successor to Maverick.
Handling and performance
The Nerf Strongarm is especially suitable for beginners because you have practically nothing more to do than the trigger. So you can now concentrate fully on your goals. When reloading, you have to fold the ammunition drum to reload the darts. Since this takes some time, you should cover up during the reloading process. But with a little practice, the recharge time is reduced to a few seconds. Practice creates masters😉
With the N-Strike Elite Nerf Strongarm, we have reached a range of almost 15 meters when we hold the blaster straight – that is, directly at someone aim. If you shoot upwards at an angle, you can reach ranges of up to 21 meters! Thus, the Elite model achieves a slight improvement compared to the previous model Maverick REV-6. Regarding accuracy, it depends on how far your goal is. In the case of further distant targets, a certain inaccuracy is shown, because the arrows then run out of the orbit. But since the Nerf Strongarm, as already mentioned, is anyway better suited to use in smaller areas, should not further disturb.
As already mentioned, the N-Strike elite Nerf Strongarm just makes fun when your Nerf battle takes place on the narrow terrain. The advantage lies clearly in the (small) size, as it allows you flexibility and flexibility. Besides, you do not have to be careful not to bump your blaster against any walls or other obstacles. It has a disadvantage, however, on large expansive terrain, since it can not keep up with the range compared to other Nerfs. But even then she can be a good support for you as a “second blaster.”
It can be somewhat problematic when compared to the Maverick. It is better, as the fire rate, and also offers some better features than the REV-6. But overall the expectations could be too high if you have already met the REV-6. The Nerf Strongarm is a good choice and can be helpful as a “second blaster” in bigger nerf battles if you have to go back to a short distance blaster!
