Really, when you get right down to it, what do you want out of your blaster? Ask any 9 year old and he will tell you, “you need speed and distance.” The problem is, blasters are usually built to favor one attribute – either speed OR distance. Not anymore. The new Nerf N-Strike Elite RapidStrike CS-18 Blaster promises rapid fire action, while still delivering a 75 foot range. Does it deliver?

Firing is Fast, Picking Up…Not So Much
As the video shows, the RapidStrike CS-18 is clearly a very FAST firing Nerf Blaster. In addition, the darts do tend to reach 60-70 feet on average, which is some great range. The only problem – while it only takes about 8 seconds to spray 18 bullets 70 feet away…it sure takes a lot longer to clean them all up!
Still, the kids will want to pick up the darts because the Blaster is so fun they will want to reload and shoot again. Here are the top features on the Nerf RapidStrike CS-18-
“Stay mobile with this streamlined, lightweight Rapidstrike CS-18 blaster! The Rapidstrike CS-18 gives you serious rapid-strike firepower.
