After messing around with Buffs homemade cobra and Bolo darts at Apoc, I would be disappointed to not see these implemented in other wars. Maybe a defend the core type game, with a pole as the core? Its a very fun alternative ammo that works actually like it was intended to.

These are great, but could you make them without needles in them?

You're only using the needle to thread the yarn through the foam. You're not actually leaving it in the foam.

Haha. My mistake.
Good work!

I tried this with some 1.25" foam I found at the local surplus store. I loaded them with big hex nuts and connected them with some thick string I had. Wraparound was amazing, but my pulse strike, mighty as it is, can't propel two of these heavy weighted darts very far. I need to try something smaller.

I was playing around with these using an inch of the normal hollow blue foam we use here in Aus. Firing from my Titan I get around 60ft flat but i'm not getting very good wrap around. Anyone have any ideas why? I tried tying them together with some cotton as well as fishing line, about 50cm in length. The cotton worked best.

You're so stupid that when police tell you that you broke the speed limit, you offer to fix it.
