Hey all, Goombadude3 here. I am wanting to make Stefans for the very first time but I am unsure what size of FBR and washers to buy. I have links below to both the FBR and washers:

Washers:
http://www.lowes.com...rs&N=4294958830

FBR:
http://www.lowes.com...Ntt=caulk saver

I know they are the right materials but I want to make sure the washers will be the same size as FBR so they are perfectly lined up.

They are very cheap as is, but my mom works there so I am getting them dirt cheap.
Please help me out. Thank you! :huh:

I use #8 washers, but thats from home depot, so I don`t know if they are the same at lowes, but you should be able to bring the FBR bag over to the washers and line them up to find the best size.

On that note-

Please put some sort of cloth over your washers (see Captain Slug darts), as the washers alone will leave very nasty welts.

Thanks RR! I was looking for a size because I don't know what size a #8 is. My link shows 3/16ths and I really am not sure what size a #8 is.

Oh trust I would not just leave the washers un-covered. I want to put a dome of hot glue over them, do you think that will help the impact?

Most of the time washer and hot glue darts are frowned apon. I know for a fact that lowes has 3/8 inch felt pads. Try using them insted of the glue.

I found 3/8 FBR and 3/8 Felt pads! Woooooooo :)

So yeah since that one person said washers and hot glue was extremely erotic(sorry I forgot your name).I just simply typed 3/8 FBR and boom, there it is for $2.30.

Now that i know the felt pads will match with the FBR I have 2 more questions.

1.How many felt pads come in one package?

2.Will 3/8 Stefans fit in my Recon CS-6 Clip?

You don't want 3/8" FBR. The usuall size for micro stephans is 1/2" FBR. Now to answer your questions, The amount of felt pads in a pack will say on the box/bag(it is usually 250 or 500 packs that I buy) and 3/8" will not work in your recon 1/2" will though.

Just buy the half inch foam and 3/8 inch felt pads. It should work, might not. If you're getting it for cheap then it wouldn't hurt to try.

Ok so 1/2 FBR. I found that lowes has that too. Because my recon is my prized gun and I want my stefans to work.

I'm new, yeah, but wouldn't felt pads inhibit the dart's aerodynamics (as opposed to a hot glue dome)? I'd be interested to see how a dart made with the felt pad would fly versus one with the hot glue dome versus one with just the washer...

Hey Goombadude3. If you want to make extremely high quality stefans, then you can buy mile high or swift nerf foam. Both of which are high density and work great! Also, for PETG you can use 5/8 FBR for springers. It is a great airtight fit. Regarding weight, you can use the washers, but my opinion is that using fishing weights or steel/copper BBs is safer and more effective.

I would recommend using the 3/8 felt discs and using #bb fishing weights, instead of washers. The 3/8 felt disc won't completely cover the #8 washer.

The yellow balls are also slightly smaller in diameter than the green ones.

In the past Ive always used BB fishing weights, which worked quite well, covered in a dame of hot glue. 1/2" FBR, cut into 3" strips, with a little hole burned in the top with a hot glue gun. Drop a BB in the hole and cover it in glue, then put it face-up to dry.
