Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

We wanted to take a moment to give a fond farewell to Rob over at Southern Brisbane Nerf Club. He announced today that he will no longer be updating the blog, Facebook or YouTube. It always saddens us to hear another Nerf contributor close their doors, but especially when it's one who's done so much for the community.  We really think you've had a great impact on everyone, not just us here at B.A.N. So thank you for being a part of this community, and helping our little hobby learn and grow. We hope that you are fruitful in all your endeavors, and know that you'll be missed.

Nerf N-Strike Elite Havoc Vulcan on Argos

Earlier this morning, a post on Reddit popped up with a link to what appears to be an Elite Vulcan on the Argos website.  The blaster, dubbed the "Nerf N-Strike Elite Havoc Vulcan," has a color scheme in line with the whiteout series that we've seen from the Rough Cut and other Nerf Blasters.  The price of Havoc Vulcan is listed on Argos at £54.99.  Images and link to the blaster after the break.

Dart Holes: A Solidworks Simulation

As many of you heard on the latest episode of Nerfcast, we had some really awesome content provided by one of our good friends Mitchel. With more information coming out in regards to the new suction darts it seemed like the perfect time to throw this information out to the community.  Mitchel's studies show the effect of the hole in the side of the dart's head on it's flight path and that it's more than likely not responsible for the instability of the dart. It's really cool to see some hard data and a great read. We're sure we'll see debates about this continue into the future, but this is really an awesome step in more information for the community. Once again, super big shout out to Mitchel!

We've included the document after the break, or you can view the document HERE.
