    Longstrike Reviews.

    Post  tdudey123 on Wed May 04, 2011 11:56 pm

    So, I want to start off by saying that this is, obviously, a forum for all of your (amateurish) Longstrike CS-6 reviews. Post as many reviews you want to, just try to make them legible and, if possible, USEFUL! I'll start it off.


    Nerf Longstrike Cs-6 Review:

    Let me start this review off by saying this: I made a mistake 7 months ago. Want to know why? Because I wasted $40 on a blue, plastic, piece of garbage A.K.A my Longstrike. I'll tell you why. I'm going to break this review up into 4 major parts. These are: Cosmetics, Performance, Modding Capabilities, and Price per dart, distance(feet), etc.


    Cosmetics (Looks):
    In my opinion, the Longstrike is one of the best looking nerf guns EVER made. Probably the best.It ranks up there with the Longshot's tank-like looks and the vulcan's straight-out of Rambo looks. No doubt it looks good. Measuring over 3 feet, with a nice bolt action (reverse plunger) system, it looks pure awesome, but does it perform?
    RATING: 9.5/10


    Performance:
    If only looks alone could win you a nerf war. But, unfortunately, they don't. And that's why I would never use the Longstrike in a war. Although the Longstrike looks like it could pack a serious punch, it barely reaches "Meh" level. The things to blame? The reverse-plunger system, and the useless barrel. Now, before you guys get your testes in a twist saying "You can take off the barrel", I hope you realize it's meant to resemble a SNIPER RIFLE. The last time I saw a sniper rifle without a barrel, was, well, NEVER! Alright, now that I've let off some steam, lets get back to the review. In short terms: The Longstrike performs terribly. These are my measured ranges (with the front barrel on, and un-modded):
    Flat: After 6 shots, the average distance was 17 feet.
    Angled 45 degrees: After 6 shots, the average distance was 28 feet.
    28ft? Not too bad stock.
    But then again, we want a sniper rifle, not a mortar.
    RATING: 4.5/10


    Modding Capabilities:
    Not many. Aside from the general AR removal, clip lock removal, and the (terrible idea) spring stretch, there isn't much left to mod. The only Longstrike-exclusive mod is the detachable stock mod. I'll agree that the fixed stock is the closest accessory to a real sniper, but when I'm chasing down a bud through a forest, the only thing I want hitting my shoulder, is nothing.
    RATING: 7/10

    Price per.....:
    Since you might not know what I mean by this, I'll explain. I'll explain how much the Longstrike costs per thing it does. For example, if it gets 17ft. stock, and it costs (at the least) $30, that means each foot in distance it reaches costs $1.76. So lets get started:
    Price for the gun: (At the least) $30
    Price per dart included: $30 divided by 6 darts included= $5 per dart.
    Price per foot reached stock: $30 divided by 17ft. stock= $1.76 per foot in distance reached.

    I don't know about you, but $1.76 per foot. My stock barricade costs $20 and hits 30+ feet.
    RATING: 4/10

    Total rating: 25/40 or 6.5/10.

    All in all, it's not too shabby, but it's not the best. (That's what she said):D

    When I saw the title, I thought 'ohh, here we go..' hahaa.
    All things considered, even though this blaster came out forever ago, you wrote a pretty nice and quite informative review. I'm impressed with the lay out, the way you presented it. Good job, man!

    And you made a that's what she said joke!
    God I love those jokes so much.

    Good to have you on board, friend!

    Cheers,
    Cody


    Edit: I think you have to have a picture of what you're reviewing, but I might be wrong.

    Yeah, that's a fair call, and most people know what it looks like. I usually avoid places where I have to post pictures, hahaa. But I think it may actually be in the rules and it really isn't hard to stick your foot in it here.. I'd check, man. Or ask an admin.

    Remember these are toys though. You're never going to get much out of them.

    As far as modding goes 2 words(sort of...) +bow internals!

    Yeah put a pic up. As much as we all know what it looks like reviews need a picture.

    You could also stick a 4B or MM in it. I've seen a megastrike, and the creator used the detachable barrel as a breech. Great power and looks AWESOME.

    I have been seeing less and less of them in stores, when I got my Long-Shot i didn't pay attention to how good a gun was. so lucky I didn't get the Long-Strike. is it much better when modded? my Long-Shot was mediocre until I removed the air restrictor.

    LongShot's have phenomenal potential for modding, being direct plungered.

    The reverse-plunger internals of the Longstike make it fairly useless in comparison. I've done a spring upgrade, AR removal, improved plunger seal etc etc, and I average 72 feet angled from the hip. In comparison, I range around 150 feet with my LongShot, with minimum angle. I also average 68 feet with my maverick, angled from the hip.

    So, yeh, it is a cool looking blaster, but extremely impractical as a "sniper". Admittedly, the best use I could think of, would be for a housing for a Titan/4B tank or similar. Simply for cosmetics.

    Long Strike sucks so bad. Longshot in comparison is a beast. I think it has the biggest direct (or any) plunger of the whole N-Strike range. So much potential. Seriously, put another spring in there and you'll see huge improvements. Rebarreling it will help a lot, too. Brass breech makes a huge difference, from what I hear. I love Longshots, they're excellent! Hahaa. Long Strike really suck so bad. It's a shame, they could have made them cool.

    I'm hoping to start work on a Longstike mod that will make the LongShot look stupid!! It's going to be quite a fair bit of time in the development stage though.

    If you do that without putting an air tank in it and have it accept clips still, I'll be extremely impressed.

    Nah, it won't happen without an air tank. It will still accept clips though - hopefully. It will only look like a Longstrike, but that will be the only resemblance.

    putting an airtank in longstrikes it easy. Actually making it a direct plunger while still accepting clips is an achievement.

    Yeh, using pre-made air tanks in longstrikes is easy, while I'm yet to see a decent way of locating the pump handle. I'm looking in to making my own air tank to fit in the longstrike - not difficult, but something I haven't done before.

    Making it a direct plunger would be awesome, but not the easiest of tasks.

    It has been done before so the ground work is there. Using australian materials to do it will be the tricky part.

    All you really need to do is find a nice air tank, throw it into the longstrike and you got yourself a sniper XD.
