OK. Finally, my second NERF for the year. Its a NERF Proton, which shoots discs instead of the usual darts. The Vortex is a single-shot weapon in the Vortex series. And well, the reason I got this was because it was being sold at a very attractive price when compared to the ones being sold in the shops.
|Anyway, this is the box for the Proton and surprisingly, its quite small.|
|Once you open it, you're presented with the Proton which, makes you think, "If this NERF or some Sci-Fi gun?"|
|Once you open it that is... blast these stupid paper strings|
|To be honest, the grip feels so good but I still prefer it to be slightly thicker at the palm area, near the thumb.|
|Wha...? I thought the paper strings were bad enough but this warning too?|
OK, OK. Its for people like me who never RTFM.
|Anyway, pull out the tray, slot in the disk.|
Bear in mind that the Proton has a lot of safety locks.
If the drawer is not it, it won't fire.
If there is no disk in the drawer, it won't fire.
|I do not like the front view of the Proton but then, because its shooting disks, it has to be wide.|
|The Proton is very short but still bulky.|
|This is the close up of the disk.|
The edge is mode of some soft foam
|Yes as you guessed it, the middle part is where it carries all the weight|
|So, why do I get one? The answer lies in the design.|
Side-wise, its beautiful but if seen from the front or top, its too wide.
