The Mega Howler is part of Hasbro’s Nerf Sport (or N-Sport) product line, a series of their patented “non expanding recreational foam” designed to resemble various sports balls. The Vortex Mega Howler is a radical take on a traditional football—it is basically a foam football with a tail fin attached which makes it capable of flying for amazingly long distances. It also makes a totally amazing “howling” sound as it flies through the air! Read on for the Tommy’s Toy review or to check current prices and stock click the “Click Here For More Info” button below.

Nerf Mega Howler Review
It can take a little practice learning to throw the mega howler—the tail with its three fins—makes it different from tossing a regular football. It also has a harder outer shell than most Nerf products, which seems odd but which undoubtedly helps with its aerodynamics. This is one Nerf/foam product that won’t soak up the water when you take it to the beach, and the howl lets the unwary know that there is an “incoming missile” coming their way. That howl is a bit attention grabber in parks and at the beach; expect folks to come over to investigate and ask to throw the Nerf Vortex Mega Howler—you may want to keep an extra on hand so you get to play with it yourself!
Nerf Howler Distance
The beauty of this ball is that it makes everyone into a football star—it is almost impossible to throw the ball and not have it sail 200 yards just like Elway and land just where you want it to with a beautiful to behold spiral trajectory.
The Vortex Mega Howler is durable—like anything Nerf it can collide with just about anything and keep on going. With a little practice and a hard throw you can even get this baby to bounce off the surface of water!
Nerf Mega Howler Price
