Kids used to call that variation a "Zero Dart." Very glad it has changed.
I've always called them cigars. I've never taped around my stock darts though, i usually do it on stefans but with electrical tape.

Dude, you think you spend time on your darts? I make my darts 4 at a time. I spend an averag of 6 minutes on each dart. I was making them all day today, and I got 30 of my highest quality yet. They are amazing. That's enough bragging, my point is just the same as yours. Spending time on your darts really does help in the long run. Consider it.
I spend time on my darts. Instead of spending a couple of hours at a time on darts, I just make a batch of 25-50 high quality darts every time I mod or have some free time. They just accumulate over time ya know. I just hate when I'm in a small war and I think I got the shot made but thanks to the low quality stefan, it goes off course. Nothing like missing a shot from 20 ft away.

We need stefans to be as perfect as possible. It is already such an incosistent art that you want to make it as good as possible. Therefore you have to spend a lot of time for optimum, and sometimes the only acceptable, quality. I found that out the hard way. My team lost a whole war because I rushed the darts. Everybody had like 40, but they sucked balls.
Yeah, that's my mini-rant.

It is if you distribute the darts amongst your friends, 300 times 20 seconds(it doesn't take a minute to tear off a peice of tape and wrap it around a dart)=6000sec which reduces to 1.7hrs dived by 4 friends=.417hrs, thats less than 30 minutes of your life.
I disagree. With 300 darts you make, you spend abbout 1 min extra adding tape to it. Thats 5 hours of extra work on getting about 5 feet more distance... Even if you do tape it, making 300 darts, not many are gonna be perfect, so adding tape just increases how many you could potentialy screw up and make them shoot out at a 30 degree angle. if you can make 300 darts in a 3 hours, you are a happy camper. But making 300 darts in 8 hours is just complete crap. I just as well go out, get a job, and go buy some darts from Hasbro for the 8 hours of my life I just wasted. In my opinion, the time is not worth the distance.

My darts are 2-2.5 inches long, and I weight using 1 and 1/4 inch threaded wood nails. Then I put a dome of hot glue over that for an even better weight. The fact that the nail extends about to the 2 inch mark (the nail goes into a dip in the tip of the dart approx. 1/2 inch deep.), makes sure that the dart remains ridged and straight. To me, this is a great way to make darts... never have to fumble with those pesky bent darts.
Not in the game anymore, but it was great while it lasted. Thanks for the great years of fun, NH!

Wow, wrapping it around before hand... never thought of that. I may also have to paint it before hand too.
Well, i use packaging tape, and you can wrap the tape around the FBR before you cut, which saves time. I also cut my darts really small, like 1" or .5", meaning NO TIME SPENT STRAIGHTENING (they're to small to be bent too much).
You may want to consider increasing your dart size man. I mean Nello and I made a whole bunch of 1-.5" darts and they suck ass compared to the 2-2.5" ones we use. But its your choice not mine. You also get alot more, but FBR is dirt cheap... whatever i'm going off on a tangent.

All I was going to say can be summed up in a few sentences. First this thread has been dead for 4 years, don't post in threads like this. It is now a necro thread. Second Capitalization and Punctuation are your friends. Don't take this the wrong way, I am trying to help keep you off the ban list.
you really only have to put tape over the tiny hole to block air escaping
