Xplorer Dart Blaster Developments Metal Gen 5 Pusher!

Since it's my birthday, I have some time off for myself and thus I'm able to make this post.My friend Mark (AKA Loonie) contacted me about Xplorer's newest product:The 5th generation Longshot dart pusher.
The Gen 5 pusher only works with stefan darts-just so you know.I have been waiting to get the plastic one for quite a while now.But since the metal one is out,I'll try it.
I have experienced plastic pushers breaking before when using high spring loads and under heavy abuse so this will be a great alternative. 


There are two options when buying this kit...


  • Metal Gen 5 Pusher:80SGD
  • Metal Gen 5 Pusher and PLASTIC gate:120SGD


The dart pusher is made of billet aluminium grade 6061, and cut using a CNC machine.Its plus point over the plastic version is really just that it is much more durable.The estimated range for Gen 5 breeches are around 100'-150',depending on various factors(Foam,tips,etc used).
Really looking forward to testing this out. If you're interested in getting one,Singapore buyers, head over to 'Xplorer blasters Singapore Facebook page' and add your name to the list.International buyers, please check out the XplorerSG webstore.

Pictures of a new Longshot grip are posted on Baidu now.Credits to this Baidu user for the image,and to Gavin for the heads up.
According to the comments of the original post, it seems that the grip is created by F10555-the guy who created the 3D printed Retaliator grips.
Really excited for this to hit F10555's store. We can finally can cheaper grips!
Also,from the image we can see a giant front muzzle.And on the top of the Longshot,some rails!Hopefully the rails will be released in time to come.If anyone is interested in the front muzzle,I found the link to it-here.

Credits
It's been one week since the passing of Lee Kuan Yew-one of modern day Singapore's founding fathers. Things were pretty emotional for most last week,and I managed to see the compassionate side of Singaporeans.Anyway, I did a quick video tribute for him for my new(personal) channel,and I thought I'd share it with you guys.

Malaysia BOOMco 2015 Roadshow!

Hi guys! Recently, I got contacted by Brandthink Malaysia.They shared with me some information about BOOMco in Malaysia,so I'm sharing it with you guys. Read on to find out more!


Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Mattel introduces a new line of highly anticipated BOOMco.™ blasters, giving kids the best reason to switch to BOOMco.™ for more adrenaline-fueled fun this school holiday season. The new line features four new blasters, including the highly anticipated BOOMco.™ Mad Slammer that showcases a new slam-fire mechanism that shoots darts up to a range of 50 feet.
“At Mattel, we continue to innovate and deliver the ultimate play experience for boys around the world. Cutting-edge dart and target system paired with its innovative blasting mechanism, the Mad Slammer™ allows kids to blast 20 darts swiftly for the ultimate high-energy play,” Leong Meiyin, Head of Marketing, Mattel South East Asia. “It brings more dynamic to blaster play with BOOMco.™, along with our spring-loaded blaster range and new exciting accessories line.”
The secret to awesome fun with BOOMco.™ blasters is none other than its unique dart technology and construction. Made with the brand patented Smart Stick™ technology, the BOOMco.™ dart tips are constructed with a substance that will only stick to its designated Smart Stick™ target repeatedly for better hit recognition.
According to Binh Luong the Global Design Director for Boys Action Figure, Games and Outdoor Category for Mattel. “During our three years quest in developing BOOMco.™, we noticed from research that boys enjoy the thrill of seeing each dart hit precisely where they shoot. It led us to the creation of a new line of blasters that can fire much faster and straighter armed with darts that can stick to surfaces, but not sticky.”
From 11 to 22 March 2015, parents, kids and blaster enthusiasts can discover why switching to BOOMco.™ will offer better active play. The action-packed “Switch to BOOMco.™” roadshow, happening from 10.00am to 10.00pm will be an exciting day out where you can play, blast-free and battle with your friends with the new BOOMco.™ blasters.
