I personally think that retail/vendors could be served by simply tacking on a section and simply post any abbreviations and provide a link, with the cover-all line "If you wish to know more, ask" that way, we're not seen as endorsing various retailers, the jargon thread is kept clean, and we can move on to bigger/better things.

Just my $0.02

Oh wow - I unfortunately just got a Deploy (for free) , whoever designed it needs to take a long hard look at themselves. It shoots about 5ft on a good day and is just nasty to use.

back on topic - ADDITION REQUEST.

HVZ - Humans vs Zombies , a mass game of tag with Nerf blasters developed by Goucher College students in America in 2005. The aim of the game is for either the humans to survive the game period by shooting the zombies with Nerf guns or balled up socks until the zombies starve/humans complete last stand mission . Zombie victory is enabled by tagging all the Humans. HvZ is predominately played on university campuses however it can be played anywhere indoors or outdoors with a decently sized space.

Is it worth putting that all tube/pipe width measurements given in the forums will typically be internal diameters rather than the external (which they are sold at)?

I think your thread was the first case I'd seen of this. In almost all cases the diameter mentioned in posts will (or at least should) be the dimension that's used at point of sale (almost always OD due to fittings etc., which rely on the OD to fit properly - IIRC some piping/tubing is sold with it's ID as the identifying measurement but if you're buying from the same source as the OP that shouldn't be an issue). If you see a post about 17/32" K&S brass tubing that should be referring to brass with a 17/32" OD as per K&S spec (note that 17/32" brass is a popular barrel material it's just that, IMO, it's a bit on the tight side for new darts and especially when used as the full length of a barrel). K&S brass sizes can cause some confusion though, due to the nature of them being being able to nest within each other (the OD of one size is the ID of the next size up) - if you do see a post about K&S brass dimensions referring to the OD as the ID, or vice-versa, chances are it was just an honest mistake.

I don't feel sore about it, I just have a well stocked brass larder now 😊 I managed to track down a couple of lengths of the next size up and they're on there way so its all good!

Accustrike - a new dart design from hasbro which advertises superior accuracy to the stock elite dart. Advertised as spinning, it's accuracy is rather due to the increased front weight of the dart. More expensive than stock elite darts, they are roughly comparable to the new wafflehead designs in performance.

Wafflehead - a new dart head design where the dart head has a collapsible design to facilitate softer hits by having what looks like a honeycombed interior (or waffle pattern). Available as very inexpensive replacements, these darts surpass the gen 3 kooshes in performance and cost (and availability, being available on Amazon, not just eBay). The most common manufacturer is EKIND but other manufacturers of this dart design exist.
