No I Found a different place. But if that place works out I will go see if the foam is good. I live close to the factory. I'll email them and see if they will let me drip by. I'll take se pics and buy a small amount to test if they let me and Ilol post my findings
That'd be sweet. It'd be nice to know the quality before anybody makes a big order.
Light blue. It's not a natural color (like yellow or orange) so it's easy to find in all seasons.
I would try to contribute based on cost, if we went with blue.
I grew up with Campsis radicans (Trumpet Vine, see below) so I've seen "blaze orange" in nature many thousands of times.
Bright blue, or purple - though also actually "found in nature" (in flowers, as are many colors that humans can't even see), blue and purple can really stick out, on most grassy and woodsy backgrounds. The dark blue of Elite darts is just okay. Orange should actually be a little better. But I always want purple anyway.
Years ago, I investigated having custom foam made, but back then minimum orders were more like $8000.00
I'll let you know what happends. I'll try to go soon on my next day off
My vote is for purple if you can make this happen. Blue would also be cool. I feel like Nerf can have dibs on orange for now. And of course I'd prefer not pink since I've got a bunch of that.
My only advice would be to check out the size and tolerances first, and NOT ship it from the opposite side of the world. The latter you're already doing, and the former sounds like it would be relatively easy for you to do thanks to the latter.
Yesterday, I thought my other comment went through, but apparently it didn't.
Anyway, Yesterday the comment was supposed to state that I would try to start a bulk order of foam from Alcot Plastics, as I had sent them a request for foam, and I was going to do it because I live a short drive from them, but shipping would be a lot cheaper than if someone was trying to bulk order from, say, California. so anyone interested in buying foam, I am currently putting up a thread in the trading forums for bulk ordering the foam.
But, there are some questions that need to be answered on the thread as well, such as:
What color foam do we want?
How many feet/meters of foam do we want?
Are you willing to join in because you are in dire need of foam? This one has two yes answers, one answering the whole question, and one just saying you are willing to join in.
