|Reflex IX-1. Size doesn't always matter:P|
The Reflex IX1 is a small, quite nuggety looking single shot piece. As with the Eliminators, there's not a whole lot to them other than cocking the top rear of the gun back, inserting a foam dart in the IX1's barrel and then pulling the trigger. The gun's aesthetics have definitely improved since the Eliminators, looking all that little bit more futuristic and coming in the traditional N-Strike colour schemes. They also have the Tactical Rail grooves on top of the gun that allow you to mount N-Strike accessories like scopes and pinpoint sights on them for aesthetic purposes.
What they didn't do unfortunately was to keep the hole in the grip of the gun to store a spare dart. Not a show stopper, but just something I noticed.
Although they're small, they're still sorta bulky and admittedly won't fit very well in your standard jeans/pants pocket, so you'll still need to holster them in a pouch. That being said, they fit very nicely in a desk drawer and are the type of blaster that ANYONE can use, with minimal complications which means an all out office war with people NOT in geeky environments (i.e I.T departments) is more likely:)
I haven't had these long enough to test their durability, although one straight out of the box tends to stick a little and misfire which is a shame. My pack of six was imported from the US and cost me 39.95US.
Out of the box performance: 6.5/10
Cool factor: 7/10
Price point: 7/10
