Alright, I got this idea yesterday, so bare with me.

I decided to make my own tagger darts (the ones in the store with velcro that sticks to you).

Materials Needed:
-Foam backer rod, half inch for micros or 5/8 for megas (your choice)
-Glue gun with glue
-BBS or a type of weight
-Store bought velcro, I used the larger squares rather than the little circles

1. Ok to start, make your stefan but do not put any glue on yet.

2.Cut a small peice of your velcro, big enough to fit on the tip of your dart.

Sorry for bad pics.

3. Place BB in stefan and put glue over it. Place the peice of velcro on the glue and make sure it is the highest point on the tip of the dart and that there is not glue overlapping it.

4. Let it dry, and your done.

Finished product:

Once again, sorry for bad pics. But if you can see the grey on the tip, thats the velcro.

Advantages to these darts:
-They often stick to your opponents clothes.
-They hurt more than regular stefans
-If you are doing an indoor war, or even outside, thay bounce off walls.
-More range than store bought tag darts
-Cheaper than store bought tag darts

Feedback would be nice.

Questions?, Comments?, Complaints?

No, I just think it serves a tactical advantage.
People will know if they get hit better. Its like when you hit someone and they didn't know you hit them.

Its not to be torturous.

Thank you for clearing that up for me nerfer34, I was having trouble reading the instructions. :P

However, this seems intriguing except isn't velcro a little expensive for mass producing darts? And also, it seems like it would be really tedious...

So now when you get shot you've got red dots on you?

The velcro really isn't too expensive. I got a load of it that will probably make 35-40 darts for .99 cents.



No, the darts stick to you when you get shot.
