2013 Nerf Elite Clear CS-18 clips

 

 


I can't wait to get my hands on them :) The age-old debate as to why we had opaque clips, to one side being transparent comes to an end.

Got sent these from TaoBao, a close up of the new Nerf CS-18 Clear clips. Hasbro should be releasing the new clear CS-18 later this year - hinting (and giving a confirmation) at a possible window of release for certain leaked blasters that will be packing these clips.

If you recall we saw something similar to this product line back in 2010 "Clear the Way N-Strike Stampede".

What is not entirely clear (no pun intended) is reports of people seeing various Clear Elite and some of the leaked blasters in this fashion. I don't know if this is something that will come out as a series, but it's interesting - I would pick them up if that were the case. Here we go with clip reboot take v3 :)

A lot of feedback I've had by email or comments previously, is that people are mixed when it comes to buying new clips. What is conflicting people is they want to see how many rounds they have left, so want this. Others see it as a gimmick that should have been from the get-go. Be good to get your take on these, please do let us know what you think!

  1. I only want this if it's exclusive to18 round clips.

  2. great for HvZ, I think probably for nerf vs nerf battles because others can see you ammo.

  3. I'm thinking that they took so long to release completely clear magazines until they were sure they were sturdy enough; I have two of the six-rounders from the older tactical vest, and they're much flimsier than the clear side of the larger elite mags, despite being smaller. Whatever they used for those isn't likely to work for an 18-round or even 12-round due to the increased length.

  4. I'd rather have opaque clips so that 'the other guy' can't see if I'm running with a full or empty clip.

    And really... it isn't that hard to count to 6, 12, or 18 while shooting.

    Track your own ammo people, don't broadcast information to the enemy.

    1. So if someone is spamming darts at you, you're really going to keep track of your ammo? Wouldn't it be better to just concentrate on dodging and check ammo later?

    2. I don't see hot it takes concentration to count.

    3. yh, I find it Piss easy to bullet count even with the 25 drum mags. I spose the clear mag won;t bother me much with 18 dart-clips...but I wouldn't want to see all mags be clear by default from now on.. that would just be silly.

  5. Id love to have some but i will still use the old clips too. I wonder if they will ever do clear drums. and sell the drums separately like they do the clips.

    1. The Clear Series Raider has a clear drum, got one right here. Though selling them separately would be nice.

    2. The drums are already clear from the back. With clear drums you will just tell the enemy how much ammo you have.

  6. I agree letting people see your ammo is STUPID.
