I’m definitely behind on reviews, but when a listing mistake leads to a massive discount on a great blaster, it’s hard to ignore. To that end, let’s look at the Dart Zone Max Tomcat, and why it’s possibly the best pro blaster of the year – with or without a sale.
I may have bought five more, if that tells you anything.
We’re not far into the life cycle of Nerf Pro Gelfire, and already we have a special edition of the Mythic. In a collaboration with top Youtuber Mr. Beast, Nerf has a specially colored Mythic with a low-profile hopper. The hopper does hold less ammo (~300 rounds), though.
Interestingly, the pre-order price is $70, less than the MSRP of the original. Even so, a hopper with fewer rounds does seem less appealing, famous collaboration notwithstanding. Preorders are up at Hasbro Pulse or other retailers for April of next year,
Editor’s note: due to availability issues, the price is…a guess. Sorry for the ambiguity.
Sometimes you stumble upon great deals on blasters you don’t expect to find. That was the case here; Tack Pro is a European brand, so their blasters aren’t really available in the US. They’ve also had several gauntlet-style blasters in the works; they’re notable, especially since D-Dart has shifted course in terms of producing Rival ball-firing products. So when a reseller on Amazon had the Power Ring down to $50 after a sale and discount, I jumped at the opportunity. And I wasn’t disappointed.
I’m sure you’ve noticed the lack of recent posts, but there has been reason. A crazy work schedule and other events left little free time..and what time I had got used filming hilarious things for the Nerf Gelfire Challenge on TikTok. I didn’t expect to win anything, but it was still fun trying my hand at videos short and long, serious and not so serious.
In the meantime, let’s look at things happening with the Nerf brand while my writing was absent!
Buzz Bee, you confuse me. Yes, I understand that you’re trying to emulate the Voxel-game look without licensing anything. But the result is uncomfortable to use, and given the internals of the blaster, it feels like even more of a waste.
There’s no good reason for this blaster as it currently exists, and it should be avoided.
