- Vortex standard (green, dark gray, and orange)
- Sonic Series (clear green and orange)
- Upcoming re-release (white, gray, orange, and yellow)
Reloading and firingEdit
To reload the Praxis, press the clip release button to remove any loaded clips in the blaster. Load up to ten discs into the ten disk magazine, press the clip release button and load the clip into the blaster.
The blaster is then primed by sliding the bottom slide back and then forward. To fire a disc, pull the trigger.
|Firing range||10/10||The range of this blaster is very good, with it reaching up to sixty feet. It is possible to hit eighty feet with this blaster if shot with an angle.|
|Accuracy||9/10||The Praxis is a pretty accurate blaster. Sometimes it veers off to the side too much due to the nature of the disc ammunition. If wind is present, accuracy will decrease.|
|Reliability||9/10||Jams almost never occur with this blaster. Even if it does jam there is a jam release switch on the side of the blaster which can be used to clear the jam easily. Sometimes the range will slightly decrease after about two or three days use. Letting the blaster rest for about a day will get it back into shape again.|
|Rate of fire||9/10||The blaster has a maximum rate of fire of about two discs a second.|
|Capacity||10/10||The blaster comes packaged with a ten disc magazine. If a disc should happen to be already chambered, then it will hold eleven discs.|
|9.5/10||The Praxis is a good overall blaster and is considered the fan favorite of the Vortex series. Some people even consider the Praxis the best blaster in the current Vortex lineup, although the Nitron and Pyragon are arguably better.|
- This is considered the best Vortex blaster so far by many due to its range and versatility. It was rated number one of all Vortex blasters in an October 2011 Facebook poll.
- It is the only Vortex blaster that comes with a detachable shoulder stock; the Nitron features an integrated shoulder stock.
- For some reason the first generation of the Praxis seems to jam a lot when the user tries to fire quickly.
