So with OMW recently having issues with completing orders I have been hesitant about ordering the Longstrike Immortal kit from them. The Xpower Full Length dart kit from Xplorer looks like it might be a good alternative but I don't have much experience with Xplorer and was very pleased with my OMW massacre kit for my alpha trooper.

Anyone able to offer any insights on Xplorer quality or any info on when OMW will be getting they shit together?

Anyone able to offer any insights on how much the xplorer xpower kit for longstrike and OMW Longstrike Immortal kit ship for each?


Well, assuming that you are paying in united states dollars, The Xpower kit for the longstrike (the Full length dart version, with nothing added) once shipped, It will cost 65.94 USD (before any coupons are applied), and the Xplorer Xpower loser kit for the longstrike (the Stefan version, with nothing added), once shipped, will cost 85.63 USD.

Now the OMW Immortal Kit for the longstrike will cost once shipped, will cost nothing at all because as I was writing this, I found out that they stopped selling the Immortal Kit for the Longstrike. So if you want this one, you would have to ask for it here.

Sounds like Xplorer is the way to go unless anyone is aware of a third option with a dropin kit that makes use of stock darts. :(

Where did you read that the kit was discontinued? Nerf Modders Welcome?

As far as I have been told, the Longstrike kit was been taken down from the webstore as a means of OMW staff catching up with preexisting orders. Once they are caught up and stock has been replenished, I have been told the kit will go back up online.

In case you have not seen my review on the OMW kit, here. I am not awaiting replacement parts from OMW due to manufacturing defects on my kit.

I have not purchased any of the xpower kits yet, but if their kits are anything like their accessories it's sure to be a satisfying upgrade. My past orders from them I have had zero issues and everything arrived usually within 3 weeks.

The kit I'd probably get is the Xpower loser (what the hell.. autocowrecked).. s n i p e r Kit drop-in edition with the s n i p e r 100 upgrade.

I'm looking at the Full length dart kit more so for noncompetative use. I'm not looking for an NIC blaster. I'm looking for a Longstrike upgrade to make it compete with unmodded elite blasters.

Ok, my bad gears. I do take blame on that one, just misunderstood.

and arekin, like I said, the xplporer kit full length dart kit, that once shipped costed 65-ish usd, was an option.

Also, I don't know where you live, but that is what it costs me to get it, it might be cheaper for you depending on where you are in the world.

I know, I was commenting to Racer's suggestion that I get the loser kit instead.

Somehow I though it was a comment on losers in gaming or in general. Either way, I was pretty sure I knew what you meant.
