Dart in tubing
I then decidided to mod my eagle Eye (shoots mega darts).I sawed off the barrel and glued the new tubing on. then i wraped the Tubing in electrical tape. Then I added amo holsters out of Markers and glued them on to the sided of the gun

How do you expect anyone to believe you? There is no possible way you are getting 100' from an Eagle Eye. Post a video of it shooting that far then I and others will beleive you.

Not totally impossible. I replaced the barrel on my girlfriend's and with a stefan, it gets in the lower 90s. As far as doing that with a stock dart as this man pictured... I have great doubt.

This leads me to believe that he has not actually measured ranges and this is just an estimate, that he plans to correct with actual measurements tomorrow. Maybe we should let him actually make a claim before we refute him? I do have my doubts, but we will let the measurements of the morning tell!

Wow, first of all i use stefans, second of all give me a day to do results because i posted this at 10 pm last night. From all the range tests i have done this one looks to go really far.

I just did ranges and dart tag bullets went 80+ and then stefans went 90+.

Still not possible. You must have angled it.

I guess I missed the part where he said that he didn't...

Anyway, it sounds like an interesting idea for a barrel material. The only thing about it is that it appears to curve upward a bit (from being rolled up as the tubing). Does the curve of the tubing create any issue? If not, sweet. If it does, you might try sticking it inside some PVC (or other rigid tubing of the sort). Spiffy idea sir.

The standard for measuring ranges has been for a long time, is and always will be, to shoot the gun level to the ground. It's possible to get 80'+ out of an Eagle Eye angled, but if you were to measure it flat it would be in the 60s or 70s.

Nice mod. I've seen that type of tubing at my local Lowe's near the vinyl. I never thought to use it as a barrel material though, figured it would have too much friction like vinyl tubing.

Ya I have used that tubing before. I was trying to create like a "sneakshot" type gun where you can bend the barrel, but it wasn't too sucessful. That barrel material it OKAY. I have found a really cool barrel material that is better than cpvc, brass, PETG, and pvc. It comes in stock mega size and stock micro / stefan size. It comes from one of those little kids plastic golf clubs. If it okay with hokiefan, I get get some pics up. Hokie let me know if I can get some pics up in your topic.
EDIT- fixed spelling

My one old friend called our Stefans "Nerf bullets" and his crayolla'd EX-3 Nf went about 150' flat, so I wouldn't say that about someone (just joking).
Anyway, I do not believe your ranges. It's a nice mod but don't carry it too far. Because 80'=100+' is just dumb. Unless they were angled.

Carry on, with modding.

It wasnt a pointless flame.

Angled with a SSII spring makes a little more sence. You need to state that when posting ranges.

Ah. Good to know, I apologize for my incorrect assumption.

Does the dart fit snug (as in PVC or other "tight" barrels), or is it a looser fit? I might consider picking some up at yonder ACE hardware. Im still curious as to what affect the curve in the tubing has, guess Ill have to go find out.

We dont need to see his particular blaster. I hate when people say that. I own an Eagle Eye and I own a SSII. I know how both blasters work and I know them inside and out. The point is people have knowlage about blasters and what can be done to them so we know if a certain blaster can get certain ranges or not. A plain barrel modded EE can not get that much range. Untill only recently did he then change his story ( wich is always typical in these situations ) to it having a SSII spring and the shots being angled.

You can't really get rid of the curve, but if yoo use only 6 or 8 inches it becomes pretty straight. Also if you hot glue the tubing in the gun then it is becomes really straight. Most of my darts fit in really snug, it is about the same size as a crayola, but a little smaller.

I did shoot it in a gym so therefore, there was no wind affecting it in a negative, or positive way.

You could also nest it inside some other piping to keep it strait as others have done with it before.

I know why he is getting pretty good ranges. It is because his barrel is curved like an inch up so basically when you measure FLAT you are really measuring ANGLED.

Does this tubing have a very high amount of friction like vinyl? Do you have to twist the darts in? If not, this could be a very good barrel material.

Guys, enough about arguing over ranges. It doesn't get us anywhere. The point has been argued through and through for ages.

1/2 pvc tubing eh? I may have to try that; my ACE has tons of that tubing.

I agree with ompa, arguing never gets anything done. I mean, look at the French Revolution, what did arguing do to help liberty win its way through France, eh?

Onto my original point, what was the name of that gun that could angle its barrel to shoot around corners? I might try to recreate such a thing except better.
