The World's Farthest Flying Launcher!

Not to be confused with the 2011 Nerf Vortex series.

Koosh Vortex is a discontinued series of Koosh ring shooters and footballs that was released in 1998.


Koosh Vortex blasters were designed to have high ranges with the majority of them shooting over sixty feet due to the unique aerodynamic shape of the line's distinctive Spin Fire Ring and Mini Spin Fire Ring ammunition. Nearly all blasters featured some sort of catch mechanism with the exception of the Viper Shot.


Koosh Vortex was the only series of Koosh blasters to be produced by OddzOn, until the release of the Hasbro Koosh Galaxy series in 2012. A number of Koosh Vortex footballs were later re-released under the Nerf Sports series; some balls, including the "Mach 110", the "Mega Spin", and the "ThunderJet", were not included in this re-release.

The series was was officially discontinued in September of 2000.[1]
