A big thanks to the people at Zing Toys and Hog Wild for sending boxes with free goodies to try out! I’m sure there’s going to be more things to happen in the future with these.
Also a shoutout for Dart Zone for the free Aeon Pro. Even if I had a friend in Canada send me one early. Just means I can do more testing!
Yep, I’ve been slow posting, but I’ve been busy doing lots of other things. Updated cages are live on Thingiverse, for all your modding needs. Actual review for the Nerf Fortnite IR will come soon!
The Nerf Ultra series…has had a rough first year, to say the least. The Ultra One had the capacity…but not quite the pinpoint accuracy advertised. The Two had a fun mechanism, but still accuracy issues. The Four and Five were decent springer pistols, and the Three (review pending) is long and awkward.
Now, we have the Pharaoh. It abandons the naming convention, but it also (finally) gives us a removable magazine and another Ultra blaster that cares about the fun factor. After using it in a war, I can say it’s the best Ultra blaster to date. Whether that’s good enough for performance-minded blaster fans, though, is up for debate.
No pictures to add at the moment, but now that the printers are running, work is going well, and I’m fitting in time to do things, I’ll be making and selling a bunch of blasters. Purpose? Gives me things to do, and all of the proceeds are going to go towards sponsoring events/club stuff in the future.
I know for a fact there’s going to be at least ten Rapid Reds and two Fearless Fires, modded with HvZ velocities in mind unless otherwise noted. Admittedly, it’d be cool to see people using things at events! In any case, now I have to actually attempt proper paintjobs instead of what passes for paint like in the past.
The beginning of October is fast approaching, and with it comes the release of the Aeon Pro at Walmart! Of course, the official release date hasn’t stopped it from popping up on shelves in both the US and (notably) Canada. In this case, I have a friend in Toronto to thank for sending me a blaster!
At its core, the Aeon Pro is the Nexus Pro, minus the stock, extended muzzle, and forward priming handle. Doing so, however, means having a competition-grade blaster at just $25. And with nearly identical performance, it’s hard to find something wrong with the platform, especially for people who just want to buy a blaster and join in on the fun.
