1.3g Silicone Dart Tips
Posted 07 October 2012 - 06:23 PM
I recently took my prototype bow blaster out to BURN Round 9: Big Nerf in Little China and had a successful combat run.
The problem is that the prototype bow blaster only work well when using the 1.3g silicone tip darts I borrowed from a friend.
I DID look at the Velocity Tag, Hanzo, inform3r, and Oznerf before starting this thread.
But i didn't get much luck. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get about 200-300 of those darts or even just the tips?
If not, does anyone know how I can modify or create darts that have a 1.3g (or heavier) dart tip?
Thanks for your time.

Silly muppet, metal weights are for kids!

Use slingshot weights if you really want similar weight.
I'm guessing that he is looking for metal free.
To the OP, have you looked at KaneTheMediocre's work? He has some viable silicon dart making procedures.
the only mod you can have is the range extetder mod.

As far as my understanding, Velocity Tag is supposedly getting some tips made, but no one has any news about that. Judging from the video they posted online, they seem to be much better. Their (inform3r) older generation tips were basically as hard as plastic, and extremely heavy (1.6-1.7g), without cutting the stem.
If you're willing to make something on your own, you can try these or these.

I would order the ridiculously expensive (like everything else by Xplorer) X-tips, but they don't give a weight of how much the tips weight. And for the $45.00 + shipping from Singapore I could buy 375 Elite streamline darts and just mod those. I did order the new 1g soft tips and red foam from Hanzo that's supposed to come out by the end of October. Hanzo said they are supposed to be much better, and I did read the test results he did with them.
However, all of that stuff is based off of his blaster (not mine). For me, I still believe the heavier the better (since I am putting out higher psi over a longer distance). If worse comes to worse I can just stick with the Hanzo 1g soft tips and red foam. I am not worried about being metal free but I don't want metal to be exposed, and I think felt over washers just doesn't cut it for safe. I was thinking of putting in a weighted BB and using an elite dart tip (with stem cut off). That should add up to about 1.3g-1.5g per dart and have a safe (squishy) dart tip.
