What It Is
What It Is
The iconic Nerf brand from Hasbro gets a new blaster experience with the Vortex line. Vortex offers Nerf fans the latest in blaster technology and performance, along with a greater blaster variety. The Nerf Vortex line shoots plastic discs and uses something Hasbro calls XLR Technology, or extra long-range disc technology, that shoots discs super long distances, as compared to foam dart blasters. The blasters shoot these discs up to 30 feet.
The Nerf Vortex Praxis is a pump-action blaster designed for long-range disc shots. Put the discs in the 10-disc chamber and pop it into the blaster, then pump and blast. It features a removable shoulder stock, so kids can customize the blaster to the battle. The Praxis is compatible with the Nerf Tactical Rail system and most Nerf N-Strike accessories, which are sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
Hasbro has taken a classic boys' play pattern and given it a new twist. Instead of foam darts, the Vortex blasters shoot plastic discs. When we played with this, we were really impressed by the distance these discs shot, the accuracy over distance, and the ease of reloading—all things that are very important when you're in the middle of a blaster battle.
Who It’s For
The Nerf Vortex Praxis is for ages 8 and up.
What to Be Aware of
Only use the discs designed for the Vortex blasters. Don't aim the discs at people's faces or eyes.
Follow the directions for loading the discs into the chamber. They need to be right side up for the blaster to work.
