Heres part 1 of a speed test between the new Vortex Discs and the normal N-Strike stuff. I fired off 3 Whistlers from the Gear Up Maverick and 3 Discs from the Nitron. They seem to get the same speed, but the discs go farther. Check out the video in HD and full screen to see test properly. I’ll work on a better video soon.
The video is a little late I know, but our internet has been slow lately and I forgot to upload it. Anyways heres a video of me unboxing the Gear Up blasters Nerf sent me.
Even Forbes knows wassup with these hot Gear Up blasters. Check out their impressions here.
Nerf has been so gracious as to send me a package with some Gear Up Series items and Vortex info. Unboxing and photos of these blasters coming soon.
Nerf has taken to Facebook to show off their new blasters. Check the green disk that comes with each blaster, that seems to be Vortex ammo. Also note that they picture new darts with these blasters, and even seem to mis-match them. For example Whistler darts in the Streamline shooting Raider. Does that mean this Raider will be able to fire different kinds of darts? We’ll have to wait and see!
June 28, 2011 Edit: Apparently, that was just a photoshop error of some sort. There won’t be any additional dart firing abilities added to each blaster.
