Have you ever made stefans that you didn't want to hurt people with, so you use a much liter weight, and you thought they were so perfect? But then you relived that sadly they were no heaver then a streamline? I know from experience. I made the cheapest, less painful, coolest looking steafen I've ever seen. But sadly there almost liter then a streamline! Do you remember K'nex? Well if you chop a K'nex in half,then 1/4, then chop that one in half and so on. You now have a bunch of little pieces that if you look at the tip are in the shape of a cross. That cross, is your weight. Now I used to, and still do play with K'nex, so I have a lot of them, so there was no money out of my wallet. And one blue K'nex piece will give you 6-7 weights! Pictures will be here soon. Keep on keeping on!

I like the idea mainly because the X on the tip of the dart looks cool and can be used as a marker to distinguish your stefans from those of other players. What kind of guns have you used the dart with? The only problem I can imagine with using a weight like that is that it is too light for high-powered guns. I remember using airsoft BBs for a dart and they were not heavy enough. As a result, I couldn't fire them out of a long range weapon without some fishtailing or great inaccuracy.

I've used them in my AR out recon with a power stock, a NF AR out with a Firefly and stock spring, and a...Firefly with AR out



Ranges: (with stock darts) Recon:50-55
NF 5o-60
Firefly:20-23

Did you know, there is another way to make non-painful stefans?
you take a rubber dart(I use the cheapy dollar tree ones), cot off the suction cup thingy, cut the part that goes into the gun itself down to size, and glue it onto some FBR and WHABBAM!, there you go!

Do these work, or are you just making a thread of stupid shit that doesn't help the problem. Because I'd be willing to bet that the plastic k'nex piece isn't any heavier than the glue that you're using to stick it to the fbr.

Alice came to the fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

I'd think that they do work better than streamlines at least. I personally just used FBR with a helluva lot of hot glue on the end. Those work pretty well for me. It doesn't take that much weight to weight down a 1-2 inch piece of foam.

This thread is stupid, and should have just been a single post in the Dartsmithing thread.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
