I've been getting 120'+ with my singled AT2K because I've made my own darts. I don't know where to get foam backer rod so I took a suction micro and cut the entire tip off and replaced the tip with excesive amounts of hot glue. I loaded them up and am getting very good ranges. I don't have stefans to compair so i'd say theyr pretty good. The only problem is they're $.50 a dart and they may not do all that much better than a extremely cheap stefan. I just want everyones input on if its worth it.

I got my FBR from home depot.

It's called caulk saver there though.

It should be around the weather stripper stuff.

I haven't measured my at2k's range, but I can make stocks go far too.

I think someone was selling FBR around here. Maybe you can get some that way

I know some people who have darts like that, but in the end, Stefans are cheaper like you mentioned. Much cheaper...they're about $.01 or $.02 per dart the way I make them, which is pretty standard.

$0.01 to $0.02 per dart? How do you get your supplies so cheap. My stefans add up to about $0.10 each.

You can get a large amount of the stuff here and it is very cost effective even factoring in shiping.
You'll want either the 3/8'' for micro stefans, or the 1/2'' for regular stefans.

You should also look at this topic .

This may sound noobish, but what are the differences between dart sizes?

Usually you use 1/2" for micro stefans.
And 5/8" for megas.
