Firing rangeThe RapidStrike has a firing range of up to fifty feet flat.[1] At an angle, the blaster can achieve the advertised seventy-five foot ranges.
ReliabilityThe RapidStrike has some issues with jamming occasionally due to both dart quality and the rubber dart skirt inside the blaster.[2] Using more powerful batteries seems to prevent these problems from happening and removing the rubber skirt altogether will completely prevent these jamming problems from occurring in the future. The blaster is very accurate.

Final verdict and summary
Review PassThe RapidStrike is a very solid blaster. It has a good rate of fire and firing range; while it has problems with jamming, it can be fixed simply by using more powerful batteries.
