I would like to hear some suggestions for some Nerf Blasters that fit the role of a "Beauty" or a "Beast". A little exposition is in order in order to clarify the analogy being made and the context of me asking.

 

I recently have renewed the Nerf Club at A.S.M.S.A. and became the President/Doyen/Master/Whatever of it. So for the first meeting I would like to educate these Nerf noobs on the fact that pretty blasters aren't always the best one to pick. For example: during the club fair earlier today, I had a Vulcan EBF laying as a display item on the table. Everyone who had an above average interest (in context of the school's average interest) seemed to drool over it. Needless to say, I held back from saying it was a C-list blaster as to not deter them from signing up. 

 

Now for the analogy: Beauties would be something like the Vulcan. They look pretty/awesome/rad/killer/overpowered/whatever but don't tend to measure up on the field. Beasts would be something like the Pyragon or Titan. They perform awesome/rad/killer/overpowered/whatever on the field.

 

I plan on making a PowerPoint slideshow game to quiz the members on which blaster is more powerful than the other displayed. All I need is for you guys to list some blasters that fit the bill of each description.

I would use the Centurion for beauty and either a Sentinel or any PVC homemade (worse cosmetic shape the better) for beast.

If you want to bore them to death with a powerpoint and quiz, yeah go for it. Instead why don't you just let them learn for themselves? Maybe one of them will be motivated to totally overhaul the vulcan into being the blaster they dreamt it to be if you don't hammer into their heads that it sucks....

Beauty blasters... Rhinofire, Deploy, Lonstrike, Centurion and Recon CS-6.

 

Beast Blasters... Anything with flywheels, Retaliator, HammerShot, Any given homemade, even a blowpipe.

 

Also, rather than having a slideshow (I don't think anyone's charismatic enough to make that interesting), instead have a competition with a Recon Mk II as the prize where the winner is the person who brings the gun that can shoot the farthest. Both educational and fun. I like the way you're headed though, with the gun psychology.

Beauty - Fearless Fire

Beast - Alien Menace Incisor

 

Both identical blaster types, packaged elegantly on the one hand and savagely on the other.

I like Astech's suggestion. I do plan on having many club competitions such as: dueling championships, floor vs. floor battles (we live in a multistory dorm), and best modded blaster. I enjoy the idea of motivating them to bring their own blasters, for the club's equipment I inherited is sub-par. I would like to note that the PowerPoint is only ~5 slides long and by quiz I meant "who thinks which one is better". I do understand that no matter the person they always seem dry, unless you are Billy Mayes. Thanks for all the help, but I have other questions regarding the Club. Would Langly prefer me to keep this topic despite its title or create a new one?
