RubberBlastersETC DLT-19 Review


Recommended Posts

 

Posting up review of my recently acquired DLT-19 (B-Grade) from https://www.etsy.com/shop/RubberBlastersEtc

I’m going to compare it to my Hyperfirm E-11 (B-Grade) as it is the only other “rubber” molded prop weapon I have.

First of all the DLT-19 is very “light”; almost the same heft as my E-11, which is great since I’ve recently been injured (lower back/massive DVT’s down my left side/leg) and am in the process of reducing the weight of my kit, to include my backpack (will be posting up my retrofit of my radio later).

The quality of the “rubber” used in the mold is a bit more “spongy”, and there is a bit of “flex” to it than the Hyperfirm rubber, but it is of good quality.

As the DLT-19 is a “B” grade pull, there are some mold lines, which is comparable to my E-11…(photos of my E-11 for comparison only)

As you can see, mold lines are about the same, which at a glance, especially when trooping, isn’t a big deal to me…(note: they also offer a more polished pull)

As far as details, again it looks as sharp as my Hyperfirm…

Weathering is ok; I will probably hit it again to match my E-11 at some point, but it looks pretty good as is.

Overall I’m am very impressed with it, and as far as customer service; they answered all my questions very promptly.

It came delivered packaged very well and shipping was quite fast.

Again I am very happy with it and would definitely recommend them!

Hey, that's a nice-looking DLT and thanks for sharing your thoughts on it here.:duim:

You can definitely improve that weathering-job. 

How's the smell? My rubber foam DLT by RS smelled horribly.:sweat:

Unfortunately they do not ship to Europe though.

No smell at all!
