The Vortex Aero Howler is a Nerf product that was released under the Nerf Sports series.


Much like a regular Pocket Aero Flyer, the Vortex Aero Howler is a football with a tail with three fins on it. A unique feature of the "Howler" variety is that they will "howl" when thrown through the air, much like a Whistler Dart.

Official description


It was originally called the Vortex Mega Howler and manufactured by Koosh. When Koosh was integrated into the Nerf brand, so was their sports products. It was renamed in 2011 to Mega Aero Howler due to the release of the Vortex series to avoid confusion. Despite this, the football was later renamed to the Vortex Aero Howler.
