Please forgive me if there was already something like this, although I'm pretty sure there wasn't.

First off, if anyone remembers that Crossfire twin pack topic I did, well, then picture that only with Magstrikes.

I think I remember someone earlier on last year when Magstrikes were out saying that they saw a twin pack of Magstrikes in a store like Walmart or something, but we never got any pictures to prove it was true. That is, until now. Also, this isn't to do with the other similar thing posted a bit ago when Walmart had 2 Magstrikes and 2 Firestrike sets available online at $50.

Anyway, since I'm from the UK, I purchased two Magstrikes off eBay (one red one blue), from someone called dartseller (a very good seller who I have purchased a lot of Nerf stuff from in the past). When getting these, I thought I was just going to get two boxes separate for each one. However, when I got home early from school (I had exams), and saw a large long package waiting for me, in which I knew it was these, it made me wonder if they were sent separate, as it didn't look long enough for them to be together flat.

However, when I opened the box, I was pleasantly surprised to see a Magstrike Twin Pack, something that I'd never seen before, on here and eBay. Reminded me right away of the Twin Pack Crossfire, only not bought from a store this time.

And now, as always, pictures to prove this.

As for price, well I can't give a proper figure since I got it off eBay and payed a lot more, but for a guess I'm betting that wherever in the US sells these packs it must be around $45 or something, it seems reasonable to me.

Hope you enjoyed.

Now, time for me to get blastin!

I'd say that they mean vortex footballs, I'll assume that they sold well so the said that they also made the footballs.

Can vortex purchase nerf? If I understand correctly, Nerf is a subdivision under Larami which is a subdivision of Hasbro. I can't imagine Hasbro letting go of anything since Hasbro is aiming to rule the toy trade.

You guys have it all wrong. Nerf is a subdivison of hasbro, nothing else, no larami or vortex. Vortex was a company back in the day that was going to put nerf out of business so nerf bought them out and that was the end of that.

Nerf was once owned by Kenner, a division of Tonka.
Larami, which brought us the Supermaxx line, purchased Nerf, and now Hasbro owns them.
Vortex is the nerf football with fins.
Koosh made a line of Vortex guns like the Tornado and the Firestorm.

As far as I know, Koosh and Nerf are mostly unrelated, but the Vortex football could be the reference.
