    Cost - $12 (on sale)

    So I went to the Australian Geographic store in Hornsby, and I stumbled upon this (I also found the disk shot makeitgo was referring to, so I spent quite a bit there).

    The foam looks like it's the same quality you get in pool 'noodles'. The fins are really bent though, not sure if that was because of packaging or design.

    It wasn't even on a box, it was in a plastic, so this was more of a toy than a "blaster". Anyway they're all supposed to be toys anyway (homemades aside)

    For 12 bucks, this is a load of fun. It'll be even more exciting once you put a little bit of mods. Like a few rolls of e-tape to improve seal, fixing the fins or experimenting with a few kinds of homemade rockets. Surely the long barrel isn't helping with deadspace.

    One range test, at a 40 degree angle this hung high up in the air then came crashing down about 45 feet in front of me.

    You might be wondering "that's not Nerf!!!!", well stfu because it shoots foam rocket projectiles, it's powered by air, and it's design primarily for children. Sounds something like a Big Blast/BBUMB/Big Salvo to me.

    Haha yeah soft tip.

    If I can get some homemade rockets with straight fins this'll go 60 feet I reckon.

    I was thinking about singling one of these. But it wouldn't be very accurate at all due to the firing technique

    Best idea it to make it into a crossbow using a catch system so that it's using the power of the crossbow rope and so that you can hold meaning that it can be accurate. The body is basically a perfect plunger. The good thing is you can still put a coupler on and use any attachment you want.
    hope it helped
