New Design Quick Fire Disc Blaster review

With knock-offs, their either good or bad, there is no in between. This is a good one... of sorts.

It's a Vortex Proton rip-off. Even the slogan "Quick fire, disc blaster" is from the Proton's box...


Speaking of the box. It's actually quite nice and I wouldn't be disappointed if I were a child and given this as a present.

If you have a Proton, you can skip to the Pros and Cons now.

The range from this blaster is good, the handle is comfy, the loading is like a Proton except the same. It comes with four discs and two of mine were glued together :(

The blaster doesn't feel cheaply made, the plastic is nice, the finish is nice, this is a really good knock-off... however. For some reason this blaster doesn't work as well with Nerf branded discs. The only reason I can think of why is because Nerf XLR discs are 4mm larger in diameter than the discs that came with the blaster.

But to be fair, I will grade this blaster's performance based on the ammo it came with, which is to say, quite good :) If you're in Australia, I got this blaster from Crazy Clark's for $8.

Pros:
1. just like a Proton
2. cheaper than a Proton
3. loads like a Proton
4. Nerf tactical accessories will work with this blaster
5. good performance
6. light
7. comfy

Cons:
1. doesn't perform as well with Nerf XLR discs (that could be a deal breaker)
