We're in the process of drafting rules for a new Ultrastock/NIC grade group and I'd like to follow the paradigms set by amra/apoc on banning painful tips. I want to get some community feedback on what people have thought about these new Worker (gen 1 and 2) and Z-waffle pattern plastic rounds if you've had the chance to experience them in your wars. Do you think they hurt as much as hard vinyl tips?

The worker rounds are a hard black rubber, a bit harder than ACC silicon, but softer than true vinyl. The Z-pattern waffles, while having some flex joint, seem to be a type of hard plastic (feels almost more rigid than vinyl rounds).

Worker darts are fine, they have nice soft tips. No experience with Z-tips, though.

Worker darts are some of the best darts I've used in terms of reliability and accuracy. They perform exceptionally but they are definitely about as hard of a tip as you should allow. I shot myself with a few of them at about 20 feet away out of a Caliburn before using them at and outdoor war and they left a mark on my back for sure.

 

If you are using high powered guns on a smaller playing field they should probably be banned. If you have a large outdoor playing field they are totally fine.

Worker darts hurt less. I got shot by them with a caliburn and it wasn't thaaaaat bad (hurt less then a FVJ out of my LS).

EDIT: Although I'd recommend worker's darts, there is nothing wrong with the waffle darts. It's just that the consistency of the batch you buy can vary, whereas worker is far more reliable.

 Correct they are not that bad, but I did feel a bit guilty shooting them at little kids so I thought I would share.

Z tips are not good for flywheels due to the weird crush, but are ok out of springers.
Just wouldn't recommend the Z darts tbh,
