Rumours: Elite Jolt-probably.


We had more photos of the alleged Nerf Elite Jolt arrive today, and I really do have to say this is looking like the real deal. The extra muzzle attachment, the blue plastic (vs an orange regular jolt painted) and the orange priming arm and trigger for me looks pretty authentic. The original N-Strike logo is of course been the main hot issue behind whether this IS 'Elite' or just a regular Jolt factory repaint, but the owner of these has suggested it's hitting harder than a regular Jolt but that's to be confirmed at a later stage. 

Maybe it's an upgraded spring? Or maybe it's just because of the darts/in our heads? We'll see eventually. More pics after the jump. Thanks AC for the intel!

  1. The fact the stripe is only on one side hurts my eyes. D:

  2. They definitely came out of the same mould as the orange ones. All the details look identical to my orange ones. Have to agree that paint on just one side looks rather lame.
    As many modders have proven the frame can handle a stronger spring. LIttle kids can cope with the current spring, but could struggle with a major upgrade.

    I must say I'm actually disappointed. I was hoping for a true elite Jolt with a slightly longer grip to increase the size of the plunger and make it more comfortable for anyone over the age of 10 to hold.

    1. The Triad (if THAT'S real, should be actually "Elite"

  3. It IS blue plastic, as the light can been seen on the Jolt when in the light. If it were painted, the light wouldn't bounce off of it as it would if it were plastic.

  4. I still refuse to believe that it's the new Elite Jolt. Why would they rename the raider and the recon and not name the jolt? Also, the Triad looks more like the real deal, more than this. Finally, the fact that there only one white stripe at one side makes nerf sound lazy. Even they put finishing touches.
