  2. At this moment, there are still plenty of units in stock. I popped by at Takashimaya and Paragon (Metro and Toys R Us) this afternoon, and all of them had lots of Transparent mavericks on the store shelves. :)

  5. What kind of range does the normal stock maverick get, 25-30 feet?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Maverick firing ranges usually average around 20-25 ft (aimed with a slight elevated angle).

  7. the transparent maverick can shoot further because of the kind of darts. I used micros and the sonic darts. the sonic darts shot further. (actually i didnt know that.)

  19. Ezekiel,

    I'm in Singapore so i'm not too familiar with the Nerf stock availability or pricing in M'sia.

    You could check at the Nerf forums based in M'sia or just check out the dept stores around your area to find out.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hey SG,
    Which is better the Nerf maverick or the Spectre???
    Reasons please...............

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ezekiel,

    It depends on what features you prefer.

    Get the Nerf Maverick if you want a higher 6-dart ammo capacity.

    Get the Nerf Spectre if you want options to attach more N-Strike accessories but don't mind a lower 5-dart ammo capacity.

    ReplyDelete
  22. hello SG

    is it still possible to get the transparent maverick at any shops or only Ebay

    please respond

    thanks

  23. assult-marine,

    The transparent Maverick (Black Box version) seems to be all sold out in Singapore.

    You might still be able to find the clear Maverick (Clear Series version) in local stores though, just have to shop around to find them.

    ReplyDelete
  24. SG Nerf,
    What's the difference betweent the Clear Maverick and the Transparent one?
    Range? Coloring? Anything?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Jessen L.

    They both have the same mechanisms and perform around the same.

    The only difference i could spot was the Transparent Mavericks had a slightly matt exterior texture, compared to the Clear Series Mavericks which seemed to have a more glossy exterior.

      They are all mechanically the same, only the casing color is different.

  28. I know this should be put on the longstrike review but what range mods can be done on the longstrike WITHOUT increasing firing noise?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Anonymous,

      Perhaps using customized foam darts optimized for better ranges in stock blasters or improving the plunger o-ring seal... those type of mods will not increase firing noise.

      Delete
  29. So changing the spring will increase noise,k thank I will try using customised foam darts, where can I buy these?

      You can check at the various Nerf forums, see if any of the modders there have ready-made custom foam darts for sale.

      Or you can just customize your own, just check out my custom calibrated foam darts conversion guides:

  31. Also I was going to try elite darts, what do you think?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Anonymous,

      Well, Elite foam darts are slightly more consistent and accurate than Streamlines, so you should see better performance out of them... but note that they still swerve in flight though (just less severe).

  32. Is it me or did the fancy package of this gun did not come with darts.

    1. JLX9,

      The foam darts are packaged inside the bottom portion of the box.
