|Nerf Vortex Lumitron|
This is one of the Nerf Gun shooting with the glow-in-the-dark darts. Hasbro developed this blaster a few years ago and brought it to the market in 2012. Evil can also be said to be a re-release of the Nerf Vortex practice. Be that as it may – the following is our review for the Nerf Lumitron.
- Good range
- Discs in the dark
- Is very good in the hand
- No shoulder support
Design and ergonomics of the Nerf Lumitron
On top of the Nerf Vortex Lumitron, there is a Tactical Rail. Furthermore, the Lumitron offers two points, where you can attach a carrying strap. To remove the FireFly Tech Magazine with up to 10 XLR discs, you’ll find two buttons, one on each side of the blaster. At the end of the blaster, you can also attach a shoulder rest. However, you should get these extra, because the Nerf Lumitron in contrast to Vortex practice has no shoulder support in the package with it – unless of course you already have one at home🙂
To see the marvel of the shining magazine with its discs, you have to have 4 AA batteries (and a screwdriver) in the magazine. The magazine is also artificially extended, which is good or bad. There is also a small switch on the magazine that you must press to switch on the lights.
The Green of the Nerf Vortex Lumitron is somewhat brighter than that of the Vortex practice. Also, it is provided with some orange, little gray and black accents. The handle and the magazine stand out in the green of the poison. The handle of the Nerf is well on hand and would not be the pumping action could be almost one-sandblaster.
Handling and performance
During shooting, we were able to reach a very good range of about 20 meters, about 23 meters with an angled posture. Now and then there were also some outliers, who were not quite so far, but this was rather the exception. If the range is not enough, the same as with other blowers also available, a tuning spring can also be added. Then come gladly again a few meters on top of it.
The shooting works in a Pumpgun style almost similar to the Nerf Alpha Trooper CS-18 and allows you to fire up to two darts per second. The Nerf Lumitron does not have any jamming, and the accuracy is good – at least when it comes to range. The reason for this is the fact that the discs first hit an arch and should fly back on the right line at about 15 meters. In the case of a short distance, you do not necessarily meet what you have targeted.
Fun / Conclusion
All in all, one can recommend the Nerf Lumitron good conscience – there is no compelling reason not to have it. It is easy to use and certainly a “remake” of Vortex practice.
