[Canadian Tire] X-Shot Excel Double Kickback 6 Foam Dart Blasters $20 (Nerf Compatible)

Found a great deal on a set of 4 Nerf compatible Blasters. Works out to $5 a gun, solid value. They will take Nerf elite darts (I find the X-Shot darts more durable but way less accurate). I have frequent Nerf battles with the kids and we have stock piled a variety of different Nerf guns to keep things fresh and fun. By watching reviews I found that X-Shot has a bunch of guns that are as good or better than Nerf. This set is a great option for the kids who have a hard time priming the bigger Nerf guns. Shoots hard and accurate.

Oh, and Nerf competitors give you tons of darts (48 here, wow!)

I priced 1000 darts on Amazon on Christmas Day. $36 shipped. Kind of insane, 10x100 bags. Was only 1 day sale unfortunately

Yeah, I just restocked another 300. Also, not all Amazon darts are the same, some have very low durability.

For less than 4 cents a piece I definitely wouldn't expect quality that's for sure. Which brand/seller knock offs do you recommend?

Also I lied. Not 100% they are same seller but it's the same artwork the listing had 3 days ago. Coodoo brand.

Looks like the one you linked has a $10 coupon bringing the price of 1000 darts to $35.99!

I do not recommend any Knockoff darts from Amazon/eBay/Ali etc. at this time. The same seller can give you varying qualities depending on where and who they source those stock from.
A few years ago there were decent quality knockoffs or compatible darts that you could get for cheap...however, over the past 2-3 years, it's all been crap for the most part.
The good ones in the past, had softer tips almost like Nerfs, and the foam itself was better.
Nowadays, you get the harder plastic dart tips that hurt and are more dangerous (especially when not using eye protection), the glue is inferior which cause the tips falling or breaking off easier. Accuracy will be off on many as the tips may not be on straight, the hole of the foam "shaft" might be the slightest too wide or narrow which make the dart useless...but the main issue is the harder tips.
I have purchased thousands of darts over the years of various brands, knockoffs and "compatible" types.
If you can't get original Nerf darts at a good sale, the only compatible dart I recommend are the green "Adventure Force" brand from Walmart.

Don't be tempted by the cheap stuff on Amazon.
