Our current test candidate from the Rebelle series of Nerf is a strange hybrid of three Nerf weapons. In the Nerf Rapid, Glow Super Stripes are elements of the Rebelle Rayven and the CrossBow – but it is a newly packaged Elite Retaliator. All this is nothing bad at first. The Rapid Glow comes slightly slimmer than the retaliator, is lighter and its design is much more fluid.
- Beautiful, appealing design
- Good speed
- Respectable range
- Light design expandable
- Poor hit accuracy
- Shoulder rest not removable
Ergonomics and design of Rapid Glow
The highlight of the Rebelle Rapid Glow is the dart shining in the dark – they are the same as Rebelle and collectible in a matching zebra tire look. We get it in the standard magazine (it fits most Mags) 10 pieces. In the magazine is a lamp, operated by three batteries, which can be found on the outside of the magazine. To open, you need a wrench. The magazine also has an on / off switch. Contrary to the Rayven one sees, however, no glow from the outside, if the De-Jammer-door is closed.
The internal lamp is very weak and the batteries too bad for it – the promised glow is rather a light glimmer. Tip: Dear 12 mag or a drum magazine.
The handle is very slim, and the Rebelle Crossbow borrowed, but looks good and fits the rest of the flowing design. The Rapid Glow is decorated with a blue sled, which is also the primer (i.e., it makes the Nerf Gun sharp), and Zebramuster. The mouth opening is bright orange, but unfortunately useless, as not compatible with the running kits of the elite series.
The Nerf Rapid Glow Super Stripes does not have a slam fire, so after each shot, it is again primed by pulling back the sled.
Rapid Glow Handling and Performance
Regarding the handling of Rapid Glow, there is much less to complain about than many other Nerf guns of the Rebelle series. The blaster is basic and very simple regarding the usage concept – against the rebel bows, for example. A few points we have there nevertheless. Thus (at least for adult men) the bracket around the trigger is somewhat unfavorably shaped and tight.
Also, the shoulders of the Nerf Gun have a little run/mouth to support with the left hand – which is due to the length of the Rapid Glow Super Stripe.
What is dramatic, however, is the faulty construction of the Tactical Rail. That is attached to the sled, the element you need to shoot constantly to and fro. This greatly reduces the choice of extras to be offered.
A target range would also be wasted on the Nerf Super Stripes. Despite a decent range (midfield 14-16 meters, min 9 meters – max 20 meters) the accuracy is under all cannons. The darts fly extremely crooked, so it is extremely difficult to hit the target.
The flight speed of the darts is about 75 km / h on average, and you can shoot up to 1.6 darts per second. As with all Nerf guns without semi-automatic, the shooter strongly influences the rate of fire. However, the sled is a comfortable and safe thing.
