Alright, did a quick search and haven't really seen anyone discussing this yet, so here goes:

I've seen various reviews/opinions/videos on the Worker aftermarket flywheels, which are concave and toothed, compared to the flat, smooth Nerf stock flywheels.

I am of the opinion that the teeth are less beneficial than a good, well-seasoned smooth flywheel, but at the same time, I feel like the concave nature of the Worker wheels would be further improved in by a lack of teeth, as we all know a smooth surface generally provides greater friction in most circumstances, and a concave, smooth flywheel to me seems like it would have not only the most friction, but improved dart alignment which = accuracy.

I also appreciate that the general consensus is the Worker wheels are more well balanced than stock, leading to less vibration and noise.

 

Questions:

1. I want to swap the toothy flywheels in my Stockade for Barricade flywheels... anyone know where I can find some?

2. Has anyone ever produced a concave-surface flywheel (like the Workers) without the teeth?

Perhaps this has been discussed previously, but it just seems to me that the dart-contacting surfaces of the flywheels isn't often considered in what I've read and watched thus far. Thanks in advance.

Foam first, ask questions later.

1. The trading forums (which you can't access yet), /r/NerfExchange, Facebook Nerf B/S/T, and eBay all come to mind.

2. Yes. There is a German hand-fabricating entire flywheel cages, his wheels are smooth and concave.

I've seen quite a few flywheel comparison articles, and from all the data that's been collected these are supposedly the best value for your money.
