Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The overall blaster feels reasonably solid, and it uses the same quality plastics we’ve encountered in the rest of the BOOMco line-up.
This is a pretty cool blaster that is lightweight and easy to use.
The spinner is made of a nice sturdy solid plastic. There's no trigger, as such, on this particular blaster and to fire the darts you pull backwards on the front grip (no batteries needed).
It is equipped with a Smart Stick Target, which is equipped onto the blaster's rail, and allows any Smart Stick Dart to stick onto it and register hits.
If you're looking to just explore the BoomCo line for the first time, this blaster would be a good starting point.
These plastic dart toy blasters are air powered, without any batteries required.
The darts have some sort of a sticky substance at the tip, which will make them stick to any material, including fabric.
You don't get the creaking you get when playing with a NERF blaster and they all have a good weight to them.
Like the Farshot, the Twisted Spinner also comes with a shield, but this one has a few more bells and whistles. Pressing the red button on the top causes the shield to pop out automatically. Pretty slick.

What reviewers didn't like

So, here we have a blaster that can’t be fired quickly, doesn’t quite live up to performance expectations, isn’t really sized well for adults, looks a bit goofy, and isn’t particularly inexpensive.
The instructions state not to stick the target to walls or furniture, which sort of presents a problem because where are you supposed to stick it to play?
On the Spinner there is a pop-up target/defense shield. It's quite cool how this transforms, however it is very limited in its use.
The turret is a bit odd, however; instead of rotating 360 degrees, it rotates 310 degrees instead.
BoomCo darts are still new/scarce on the field
The plastic has a really nice matt finish and with the exception of the flappy bits on the Farshot and Twisted Spinner.
It hits hard but due to the fact you have to play it like an accordion, accuracy isn't it's strong suit.
