Tomenosuke are releasing a new Lazer sight rod option.
Release about March 2018.
Simple interchange swap out with the existing Blaster's Sight Rod.
No wiring needed >>> special design "push-button type" Green LED to switch on / off. Special LED run time 30 hours continuous.
The LEDs are easily removable and are replaceable.

I guess these could be used for 'other brand' blasters as well.

So it will be larger in order to fit the pin battery for the LED... or??

Just got my pre-order confirmation email from Tomenosuke.
I wanted to find a way to add sight-rod lighting to my HCG and this saves me the hassle of trying to wire it up myself.

For info this one works out at £61.00 for UK orders.

They said this was the “first 35 sets” so I’m sure they will build on the success of this batch by doing more in due course.

I didn’t wait for the ‘9pm on the 23rd’ start time as advertised. I just went straight on as soon as I saw the blog post yesterday (22nd).

Doubt it will be larger....Looking at the pics...new rod looks the same size.
Only drilled out to accommodate the miniature batteries it appears.

Oh my. This would be the first time I'm considering altering my Tomenosuke. When I show off the blaster, nearly everyone asks why the green laser sights don't light-up...

I filled out that pre-order sheet. The zip code format slot was screwed up, but maybe they'll just use the Paypal shipping address instead. Hopefully will get an invoice and secure one of these.

How is it that more people aren't talking about this mod/upgrade? I'm pretty jazzed about it...

post codes in japan are in this format: 100-0001
in my case I put BE 1190 to fill both cases. doesn't matter U guess.
I personally changed my mind and didn't pay the invoice. It was 90€, which was way too expensive for me considering what it was.
I'll just wire my green leds myself...

Got the invoice and decided to go for it. $117 shipped from Japan to US. We'll see if it was worth it. In any case, it'll be a fun mod to attempt. Very Happy

Maybe after purchasing the blaster, they have no money left for (pricey) upgrades.... Shocked
