Can you post some pictures of them? We won't be able to say much without them.

Yeah, post pictures. Also make sure your tips are secured tightly, the connection may be weak, and the tip may fly off and the foam just flitters in the breeze.

I burn a small hole in the foam backer rod (FBR) before adding hot glue; it gives more surface area for the glue to adhere to, and seems to increase my dart's durability a bit.

Your problem may be hot glue spilling out the side of your dart...if the edge of the washer, or side of the foam, have any hot glue on them you'll have a ton of friction between the dart and your barrel. Same thing if you don't center the washer and/or felt sticker relative to the foam.

Yes 0.5inch FBR is right, although actual size tends to differ quite a bit from one spool to another.

Pictures would still be helpful.
