Orange fbr? Are you sure it's closed cell? I just bought fbr from McMaster and it is grey, not orange. Post a link to it, I want to see it. There's a chance that it is open cell, which means it wont work as well, or at all. I'll check McMaster in the meantime.

Edit: McMaster sells only one kind of closed cell polyethylene foam rod, which is part number 93295K33.

You don't want to get that. Firstly, its foam rubber, which I can not guarantee will work. Second, its around $12.31 per 10 feet, which is not worth it at all. You are better off just buying normal gray/black foam.

It says the material is "silicone rubber and foam rubber" so I'd imagine that it won't have the same texture that dart foam does, and will likely have a lot more friction in barrels.

Nerf brand dart foam is orange and is always the same size. If you make 1.25" darts, it's about $8 per 60 darts. Not exactly a steal, but it's good foam with a bright color. If you choose to go this route, I suggest suction cup darts. Their heads are the easiest to remove without damaging the foam.

If at first you don't succeed, add more epoxy.

well i would rather have just orange foam because i am making slug darts and don't want the hole in the dart.

Learn from my mistake, don't buy it for darts. Its a high friction, skinned foam rubber and makes horrible darts.

Don't worry so much about what other people will allow. Throw your own wars and kick your friends' asses until they all want one.

It was several months ago that I bought the stuff, so no, I don't have pictures of the darts. I salvaged what I could of the washers and felt and threw the foam away.
