iS_switchshotultra_01tbThe Nerf Switch Shots Ultra is a mid-sized, dual-mode hybrid blaster made by Hasbro. At the front of the blaster is a toggle switch which results in the rotation of the Nerf barrels and revealing the water nozzle when switched. When in the closed-position, the blaster pumps up its Nerf darts firing chambers. If one continues to pump, an internal valve appears to switch and one begins to pressurize the water reservoir. Pulling the trigger with the water-nozzle hidden fire one or both Nerf darts, depending on how far the trigger was pulled. However, turn the switch to expose the water nozzle and one will launch water out of a small nozzle built into the front of the blaster. The stream produced by the Nerf Switch Shots Ultra is roughly equivalent to a Super Soaker XP 20 or Super Soaker XP 40. However, its reservoir style is not as carefully designed, meaning that some water simply cannot be used to soak targets.

iS_switchshotultra_11tbDespite its relatively small size, it can give a decent output. While not too useful in a major conflict, one interesting use for this type of blaster should be noted. Firing the Nerf dart first at someone can get their attention, especially if their back is turned. Once they turn around, the ability to soak them becomes a very tempting and achieveable option!

Pros

Small, light, simple to use. Easy to carry and to fire. Can fire both Nerf darts as well as water. Fairly inexpensive as well!

Cons

Not a very powerful water stream. Stream size quite small and can be outclassed by virtually any XP, SC or CPS. Range somewhat shorter than the average Nerf Gun or Super Soaker blaster.
