As most of you blog readers may realise, although i've reviewed most of the new Nerf blasters in the N-Strike range... i've yet to review a particular model that may be of interest to many new nerfers.
Yes, the Nerf Nite Finder EX-3!
This is probably one of the first blasters that most new nerfers might buy, as it is affordable and offers some interesting features.
The Nite Finder is a spring plunger blaster that is primed by pulling a tab at the back. Once the plunger is locked, simply insert a foam dart into the barrel and fire. Then repeat.
This is a manual reload blaster, therefore rate-of-fire is slow. But it makes up for that with good firing range for its size... average range is around 25-30 ft. The blaster is packaged with 3 micro foam darts.
In addition, it also comes with a built-in red-dot targeter (similiar to the Nerf Recon), powered by 2 x AA batteries.
