    I saw these in the Philipines over christmas but they worked out to be $50. I found this on Ebay for $30 including shipping from the UK, the ones they were selling online in AUS wereabout $40 including shipping.

    What caught my eye was the boastful claim on the box;

    Air Hunterz Z-curve bow 100+ feet (no bullshirt!) Sdc10811

    And after taking it to the park down the road, I can tell you all, it lives up to the claim and then some.

    Another pic;

    SO;

    Ranges (not accurately measured)

    "Red X Arrows" - 130+ feet angled, 80ish flat

    "Arrow Zartz" - maybe 100ish angled, 60ish flat

    As for availability, I've seen the yellow and blue versions of these at Toyworld (parafield) but they only come with 3 suction "zartz"

    It's a bow,

    Mod Ideas;

    -turn the piece of shiz sucker arrow into a long range one
    -buy some "bounce Zarts" and convert them, to arrows
    -possibly replace the bands with medical tubing
    -mount it on a nerf-gun shell and make a catch, to make it a crossbow

    I'm trying to think of a way to launch darts, but none seem effective to me.

    Well if you crossbow it, I'm sure you could somehow stick a plunger head and rod to the bowstring and have the plunger tube completely stationary. A bit like the BBB actually.

    That being said, the need for airseal will completely screw this "bow" up due to friction. Perhaps you could treat it like Rambo's bow with explosive arrows. That would allow for an alternate, longer ranged weapon for Demomen in FFP. Just an idea that probably won't work

    I think the idea of using something like this would be fine for demoman. Although it is quite long range, I'm sure it is not easy to aim.
    Maybe if a demo man used this instead of a titan, he would not be able to use grenades, or the arrows count as grenades, meaning he can only take 3 and they do not kill tanks if they hit their shield.
    It goes without saying you couldn't use this with a titan as well.

    Hey I assume you went to the Phils and took them home?

    I'm going later this year. This time I'm not bringing back home figurines of naked guys in barrels, I'm looking forward to bringing back to Aus, customs permitting, some nerf guns unseen here.

    I mean, if I "crossbowed" it, I would still shoot arrows, I'd just add a catch and trigger and shell,

    BTW the BBB's bow arms do nothing but get in the way and look cool

    Waaaaay too heavy for the bow, besides, you're better off throwing them

    Those are funny, have you seen the female ones?

    They have pretty much everything that we have except for some old ones that didn't sell or dodgy rip off versions

    I'm not really sure if this could be incorporated into FFP, it does give some long-ranged support though. I guess we can test it out sunday.

    Multi-classing for the win? Demo-Sharpie???

    This sets me thinking of a game type idea I had a while back. Cowboys vs Indians. Cowboys have short ranged western-style weapons like Mavericks and double shots and indians have long ranged small RoF weapons like BBB, Crossbows and these. Just an idea but the would suit it perfectly.

    Its looks kool, would be better if modified to be a crossbow. Cowboys vs Indians sounds like a good idea if you ask me. Is it easy to aim with?

    I'm well aware that the BBB's arms do nothing :P. I was just saying it'd look a tad similar and the catch would work in a similar way. Just that there'd be no spring... but anyway that's not important.

    Demo-sharpie would be so awesome. Surprise shield destroy!
