The foam itself is very lightweight, but not as soft and squishy as most of the Nerf weaponry we've seen so far. It's more akin to the Marauder Long Sword, but much lighter. Each sword measures in at roughly 2 feet from pommel to point, with the blades coming in a little under 19 inches. The "blades" are thinner than most of the melee offerings from Nerf (although we haven't been able to check out the new Zombie Strike Machete). The handles are only meant for one handed use, but aren't so small that those with bigger hands will find the grip too short. The swords themselves feel fairly sturdy, and with the foam being more dense than some of Hasbro's melee alternatives, they may last a bit longer than their competitor. Hopefully field test will yield more conclusive results, specifically against some zombie hordes.
What do you think? Is this a smart move on Buzz Bee? Will you give these a shot? How do you feel about the color scheme? Let us know in the comments below!
