Dart Zone’s Accustrike Competitor?March 28, 2018
As of a recent posting on Amazon, it appears that Prime Time Toys (of Dart Zone fame) is the next manufacturer to chase better accuracy. Whereas Nerf has Accustrike, and Buzz Bee has Precise Pro, PTT is introducing “Sureshot” darts.
As per the product description:
Take it up a notch with the Dart Zone 100 dart SURESHOT dart refills. Darts are fully compatible with all Dart Zone brand blasters and the Universal design makes them compatible with most standard blasters from other leading brands. Dart Zone darts have serious range, flying up to 90 feet with pinpoint accuracy! this refill pack includes 100 darts. For ages 8 and up.
Noticeably, the darts have the same range claims as the regular Super Darts. Nerf’s Accustrike line tends to not make range claims, and Buzz Bee’s accuracy-based products claim less range than their long-range versions.
The heads on the darts appear to be a “waffle” style, selling for $15 for 100 (although listed out of stock). And they claim to be compatible with other brands. While online bulk may still reign supreme for the “hardcore” crowd and various clubs, an option like this may find more appeal than previous competitor’s attempts (Buzz Bee’s darts sold for, at best, $9 for 35 darts under the Adventure Force line). We shall soon see!
