The Gripstrike is a Mattel dart blaster that was released in 2015 under the BOOMco. series.

It comes packaged with two Smart Stick Darts and one Smart Stick Target.


The Gripstrike is a small trigger-less blaster. It is fired by squeezing an air bladder, which doubles as the blaster's main handle. It has a dart holder on top.

It advertises a firing range of up to sixty feet.

Reloading and firing

  • The Gripstrike is the only BOOMco blaster that is somehow compatible with Nerf Elite Darts; this is due to the way the blaster is fired.[citation needed]
