ShaNayNay's is tank expanded. It didn't sound like yours was.
ShaNayNay, what did you use for your tank expansion? Rough estimate of air volume?
FWIW, I think stock elites have terrible flight dynamics. The tip is so light that at higher FPS, they do not have stable flight at all. They swerve, for sure.
One thing I have to say is that I actually really like the darts that come with this blaster haha. The black foam is great. Buzz Bee needs to release a 100 pack of these EXTREME darts, I would buy that.
I'm not ShaNayNay, but I've tank expanded mine, bout double the tank right above, with a very wide connection tube with no leaks (Yay use of ugly epoxy!). Plugged pump fills at around 10-13 pumps... With turret I'm clearing the 100 mark with whatever I put into it. Accurately too might I add. I'm using 11 inch Master tube barrels. (Waiting on Paypal to accept money so I can buy a few things, like a barrel spacer to bump the accuracy with barrels being better aligned.) The seal isnt the best, but it definatly was easy to do, and these tanks got some thick walls... About as thick maby a few mm off of the regular PVC I used.
Out of these things both stock and modded, they seem to perform above average, I'll back the claim of 100 foot ranges with turret with these using Elite Darts. (Though I'm still a nobody)
As for the darts... I agree, They have taken some rough treatment and seem very nice... If possible I wouldn't mind just the foam(no middle) to make steffans out of. But yea, 100 dart bag/box/whatever would be an immediate buy from me as well.
On the whole subject of airmax 6's, I was at Walmart yesterday for some epoxy putty, and I went to check out the blaster section like I usually do, and I saw a few airmax 6's in a new color scheme and package. It was greenish instead of gray, and the box advertised 60' instead of 40' if my memory is correct.
@ Duke, I think you have one of those.
I got one of the grey ones and the box claimed 60 feet. Though I probably wouldn't mind a green one of these....

Steel or foam, it makes no differance. We settle this like nerds...
