Nice post, RedFear. I was about to suggest posting your own thread, but seems you already have. I'd suggest changing your post to a link to that thread rather than updating both, as it's easier.

Also, as a note, if someone suggests that I investigate something and I'm slow, I'd be perfectly happy for someone else to jump in. I already have a lot on my plate.

Edit: So, I am being slow in general due to other obligations. I'm aiming for one new blog post a month now, and I'll mostly be working through my backlog. Feel free to post here with suggestions, still, as I'll take a look and others might be able to help as well.

Glad to see you're still at it, Doom. I'll be following this thread carefully.

I don't mean to Necro but I was wondering if Nerf Engineering is still running or not? If it is I need the help of someone who knows their stuff. On the show "Weapon Masters" they take old weapons and put a modern twist on them. In one episode they cover the Chinese Repeating Crossbow, which fires bolts that do not have fletching on them. When they modernize it they put internal fletching on them. Now i have 2 questions regarding this. How does this Internal fletching work and is it a viable option to implement them on Nerf darts to increase accuracy. I can not find the pictures right now so I will post them later as I am in a bit of a hurry right now. Or I will post a link to the video.

EDIT: I can't find a picture or a video. Anywhere. If I can find the episode itself I'll post that with a timestamp to what I am talking about.

This feature of NerfHaven is on indefinite hold. I do not have time to contribute.

I have not heard of internal fletching and can not find anything on the subject in a quick Google search. Let me know when you find something from the episode of the show you are talking about. I'll take a closer look if I have the time.
