Sorry about the horrible title! I have chrono'd both these now, with the results here for those who want them. Not a bad springer dart, but hopeless for flywheels and I thought the quality was fairly meh. Not as good as gen3 Koosh. No exact weights sadly, as I have no dealer scales.

I'll bring the micro-scales to Jamboree for you to get some decent weights. Smile

I think we've reached the place where you get what you pay for in terms of after-market darts. The ACC darts, Voberries and a few others significantly under perform compared to the superior, but generally more expensive, Koosh. Generation 3 is turning out to a miracle dart at my end. They were shooting like lasers for me at GC4 in both flywheels and springers with no lost heads or over-glue problems. Yes, they cost more but a) they're more widely accepted than FVJs b) they perform like it.

I have some close up footage of the tip glue vs Gen2 and it's clearly better. Good to hear they shoot well, I am saving my 200 for when I really need them. They are still less than 6p each, which is pretty good value compared to Ha$bro ones. I also think the ACC darts choice of foam is dumb, I have never had a dark coloured foam that shot right. Compared to the G3 foam it's not as stiff.

By the powers of deduction, Boff must be a drug dealer. Jamboree should be fun!

You gave him the custom tag "The Dealer!" He's going to be introducing us to his latest gateway piece of tactical equipment, then when we're good and hooked he'll pass round a paper bag full of PLA parts and that will be it.
