Strength of Plunger/Diameter of Hole = Speed of Air
A pinhole would create the fastest moving air, but only if the plunger was strong enough to force that huge volume of air in the plunger chamber through the tiny hole in the same amount of time. Also, the bigger the hole, the weaker your plunger can be. The Nerf people most likely figured out the best ratio for this.

When you have a dart in a barrel, the 'jet of air' is not acting directly on the dart. The dart moves due to the pressure differential on either side of it. That's why we have a barrel in the first place.
The faster you can build high pressure behind the dart, the faster it will move. The higher a pressure you can achieve behind the dart before it leaves the barrel, the faster it will move.
So your challenge is to get as much air as possible into the barrel before the dart leaves the gun.

I can see the possible advantage of airway restriction in plunger guns where there simply isn't enough volume in the plunger to adequately pressurize the entire barrel or where the dart is not a tight fit. What type(s) of barrel/dart did you experience this with? Barrel length?
