Foam Dart Bows

      So a long time ago I had the scorpion bow by Air Zone and I liked it a lot!
      I want something a bit better now and I can’t decide on which model I am gonna get.
      Does anyone own one and can they recommend a good one?
      Right now I see the Nerf, Big Bad Bow; (launches 35 ft) which looks pretty awesome.

      The Monkey Business, Foam Strike Bow; (launches 100 ft) also looking pretty sweet and is currently my top choice.

      Any suggestions? :)

      TS Robin Hood uses the Monkey Businessone bow at the wars we go to. Its how he got /earned his nick name. It’s ranged for a child but in the hands of an adult, it will easily got over 100ft. The down side is the arrows. Their sold in 3 packs and are kind of exspencive. Plusses, when a band breaks we haven’t found a way to replace it with a perfect match. Hence buying a new bow instead of a 3 pack of arrows is more cost effective. The Nerf Big Bad Bow (BBB or 3B) dosent have the chops to get up to the distances that the other bow can. Even after extensive modding, the arrows dead range badly. Modding the 3B is best focused on darts. With some basic tools and a short list take to Home depo, you can’t have itshooting about 75ft. Mine gets close to 80, but I use setfan and slug darts (home made amo). If you whant to sling arrows, the Monkey B is the way to go. If not, I can get you to some sights fir the BBB.
