|Proving that bigger tends
to be better, the Nerf®
Switch Shots Ultra
improves upon its smaller brother, the Nerf
Switch Shots Super. The Ultra, while not
shooting quite as far as the Super, can shoot two darts in a row
without re-pumping (much like an oversized version of the Nerf
SplitFire) and is much more accurate.
The launcher's front yellow barrel
flips to the side so that the user can switch between shooting darts
and water. The blaster holds enough air so that one can fire a
blast of water before firing the darts.
Unfortunately, the pumping handle of
the Ultra is located under the blasters normal handle (where the
blaster is held.) This makes pumping seem very awkward.
Of course, as the Switch Shots Ultra contains the water tank technology of Super Soakers, the launcher
suffers from the same "Super Soaker Scum" problem of the
drenchers: if you don't leave the air tank unscrewed while storing
this blaster, leftover water can corrode the insides of the launcher.
Overall, a powerful and unique blaster.
If you like the idea behind the Switch Shot line of blasters, this is
the one launcher to definitely get.
