What's In The Box?! GEL BLASTER SURGE 2.0 Unboxing and Initial Review | GB Splatrball Hydro Strike

Gel Blaster SURGE has been upgraded from version 1.0 to 1.5 to 2.0. This review is of the newest 2.0 version. They have made some improvements to it and bumped the max FPS up to 175 fps. It is still one of the few good gel blasters available in the United States.

Gel Blasters have exploded in popularity in 2022. They are fast becoming the backyard game of choice. It took a while for them to gain traction primarily because they are looked down upon by the airsoft community. However, I don't see these as a replacement or threat to airsoft. Gel Blasters offer a new category of fun that fits in between Nerf and Airsoft. Gel Blasters provide a good form of backyard fun with very cheap ammo that biodegrades and doesn't require any cleanup. If you're serious about your game and looking for high accuracy, then airsoft is your game. If you just want to have fun with kids, family, and friends with minimal protection (protective eyewear is all that's really necessary), then gel blasters are for you.

I purchased this one on Amazon in March 2022, but days earlier I purchased a Gel Blaster SURGE 2.0 at Walmart. So, I don't know how much longer you will be able to find the V1.5 for sale. It's possible that once they are sold out, only the V2.0 will be available.
