4 Best Nerf Vortex Football

Are you looking to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine? Are you looking for something that is a little different from the Nerf blaster gameplay?

If so, you’ll probably want something from the Nerf Sports line of products that will help you get active while enjoying some of your favorite sports in the process.

While the Nerf Sports series offers a host of different sports products, among them are a few Nerf Vortex options worth mentioning. Take, for example, Nerf Sports Vortex.

But even in this individual line, which is the best Nerf Sports Vortex football?

Let’s take a look at our favorite product and give you some other suggestions to help you make the most out of the Nerf Vortex series of products. 

My Top Pick: Nerf Vortex Aero Classic:

Nerf Vortex Aero Howler Foam Ball – Classic Long-Distance Football -- Flight-Optimizing Tail -- Hand Grip – Indoor and Outdoor Fun (Blue)
  • LONG-DISTANCE FOOTBALL: Throw long passes with the Nerf Vortex Aero Howler -- the classic long-distance foam football!

Let’s be clear: the Nerf Vortex line is very limited.

With only one major football in production and many other products having been phased out of the market, it’s quite hard to find the best football for everyone.

The 4 Best Nerf Vortex Footballs  


1. Nerf Vortex Aero Howler Classic

NERF Vortex Aero Howler Foam Ball – Classic Long-Distance Football -- Flight-Optimizing Tail -- Hand Grip – Indoor and Outdoor Fun

Nothing beats the classic - The Nerf Vortex Aero Classic is the OG, the original Aero Howler with the built in whistle.

The classic was the start of the phase of putting whistles into the football so that they "howl" as they fly through the air. 

I had the classic as a kid and now my kids have it. Hands down it's the best. 

Nerf Vortex Aero Howler Foam Ball – Classic Long-Distance Football -- Flight-Optimizing Tail -- Hand Grip – Indoor and Outdoor Fun (Blue)
  • LONG-DISTANCE FOOTBALL: Throw long passes with the Nerf Vortex Aero Howler -- the classic long-distance foam football!
  • HOWLS AS IT FLIES: It makes a howling sound when it flies through the air – you not only see how far it’s going, you also get the thrill of hearing it as it soars across the entire distance!
  • FLIGHT-OPTIMIZING TAIL AND HAND GRIP: The Vortex Aero Howler has a tail designed that optimizes flight to send it flying far, and the hand grip helps you get a firm hold on the ball

2. Nerf Sports Vortex Aero Howler 

NERF Ner Sports Vortex Aero Howler, Black

The Nerf Sports Vortex Aero Howler is a smaller football that is designed to offer a better grip for all players, no matter their age or size.

Rather than opting for the traditional football design, the Nerf Sports Vortex Aero Howler features a smaller football body at the end of a tailfin.

This tailfin is designed to improve aerodynamics and help the ball achieve greater stability as it travels through the air, something that is often cited as a downside for other Nerf football products. 

The best part, however, lies in the fact that this product “howls” as it travels through the air.

This is achieved through a small hole in the football’s body that functions similarly to the Nerf Mega dart. With plenty of fun designs and styles to choose from, the Nerf Sports Vortex Aero Howler is the go-to football for all Nerf players.

  • N-Strike Elite blasters and Elite darts deliver the ultimate in blaster performance

3. The Nerf Sports Pocket Aero Flyer

Hasbro Nerf Sports Pocket Aero Flyer (Orange)

The Nerf Sports Pocket Aero Flyer is a smaller version of the Nerf Sports Vortex Aero Howler. This gives much younger players a chance to join in on the fun if they find the original ball to be too much to grip and throw.

Even for older players, this smaller body gives them the ability to throw it higher and farther.

That being said, this product is a bit harder to get your hands on and does not come with the same howling feature as the ball above.

  • Pocket-sized foam football
  • Tail helps it fly farther when thrown
  • Practice passing or start a game
  • Includes 1 foam ball

4. Nerf Sports Vortex Howler Accelerator

Nerf Sports Vortex Howler Accelerator

The Nerf Sports Vortex Howler Accelerator is not a ball, but a product designed to improve your use of the Nerf Sports Vortex Aero Howler.

Designed much like a ball-thrower for your pet, the Nerf Sports Vortex Howler Accelerator features a small notch at the top of a long stick with a handle where you can rest your Nerf Sports Vortex Aero Howler. Once the ball is in place, simply throw your arm back with the tool in hand, and whip it forward to launch the ball into the air.

This gives you much more distance and allows you to see just how great the howling feature of the ball is. If you play with your kids frequently, having one of these on hand can be exciting for everyone.
