The dart has the usual BB stuck in a hole and then hot glued in, except it is on the back of the 1/2 in. FBR section. Stuck in the hole around the BB is a 2 in. section of straw. Here are the test results, compared with traditional stefans:
With my Nitefinder, de-restricted but with stock barrel:
stefans: 29' to 32' straw darts: 11' to 13'
With my AT3K, 4' copper barrels:
stefans: 18' to 28' straw darts: 14.5' to 18'
With my Blastfire, stock but with a cool paint job:
stefans: 25' to 32' straw darts: 0' to 2.5'
I would guess that they would work better if the straw was 1/2 in. OD, rather than 1/4 in. OD. I've given some of the test darts to Nerfer16, who is going to test them with his AT2Ks and his 1K.
