Our Rating: (4.8 / 5)
When it comes to micro Nerf blasters, it is hard to beat the Nerf N-Strike Elite Triad. This Nerf gun is tiny. Its dimensions are only 7.1in. x 6.8in. X 2in., making it small enough to fit easily into a hand or a pocket. This small size has the advantage of being easy to conceal while you are on the Nerf battlefield. And, since your opponents do not know that you have a secret backup Nerf gun on you, you can overwhelm them with the element of surprise.
Nerf does make other micro blasters, such as the Jolt. However, the Triad stands out as one of the best micro Nerf guns because of its ammo capacity. Many of the micro blasters only take one dart at a time, meaning you have to reload after every shot. The Nerf Triad Ex-3, on the other hand, can hold up to three Nerf darts at one time. Thanks to this capacity, you have a better chance of dominating your opponents on the Nerf battlefield, especially when you combine your three shots with the element of surprise allowed by the Triad’s tiny size.
As if a small size and a larger capacity were not enough, the Triad also offers smart shooting that helps you to get off your shots without a hitch. The shooting mechanism works by using a cocking handle. However, when you actually shoot, the blaster automatically knows which chambers are loaded and which are not. As a result, it always shoots from a loaded chamber so you enjoy reliable performance from your N-Strike Triad. With this technology, you never miss a shot.
Even though the Nerf Triad Ex-3 is small, it is a very powerful Nerf blaster. It can shoot darts up to 90 feet away. This is the same range as that enjoyed by other, larger Nerf N-Strike blaster. Reviewers also confirm the Triad’s power. They point out that this blaster leaves a sting when it hits and have proven in actual usage that it possesses the same range as larger N-Strike blasters. Thanks to this power, you can enjoy the advantages of a tiny blaster with the power of a larger one.
The Triad’s tiny size and ample power earn it high praise from almost every Nerf Triad review. In particular, they love the fact that its size makes it ideal for playing Nerf in the house and the workplace. Plus, they enjoy surprising friends and family with attacks from the blaster, and report high levels of fun from kids and adults alike. While they find that this Nerf blaster is not particularly accurate, they love the power it packs and its ability to travel up to 90 feet.
And, of course, the Triad comes with the durability and high quality that Nerf has become known for. This means that you can depend upon the blaster to come with high quality plastic that withstands hundreds of uses, as well as reliable performance that makes it fun to use. The result is an exceptional micro Nerf blaster that adults and children alike can enjoy.
