Nerf Vortex Praxis Review
The Nerf Vortex Praxis is a 10 disc shooter, and one of the stars of the new Vortex line.
Complete with a tactical rail and removable shoulder stock, you can mix and match most of the N-Strike accessories you’ve acquired over the years with those that come with the Vortex. Though most accessories are simply cosmetic, they do look cool — and it’s definitely nice that Nerf releases backward compatible weaponry.
The Nerf Praxis makes use of a removable 10 disc clip, which seems to be the perfect capacity for these new Nerf disc guns.
If you want a larger disc capacity, the Nitron has a 20 disc clip — but for me, the 10 disc clip is a nice tradeoff between capacity and load time.
Firing the Praxis is easy, even for little hands. Simply prime the blaster once using the nice grip that’s found just below the front of the barrel, and pull the trigger to fire a disc.
Out of the box, you can expect to shoot discs between 55-65 feet. In my opinion, this is pretty incredible — I don’t remember the last time that Nerf released a blaster that had that ability out of the box. Sure, these are discs and not darts, but that doesn’t make it any less satisfying to shoot a target a long way away.
I was highly skeptical of the discs at first after becoming so accustomed to Nerf darts, but I have to say that I’m now a big fan. They may not be as accurate as darts, but they’re way more fun.
