    CDTDs are Converted Dart Tag Darts. These are made by getting any stock dart (micro, streamline etc) and cutting the head off it putting a weight in and filling with hot glue and usually a straw is put into the tube to keep it straight. I don't like CDTDs and Inf0rm3r's foam is a much better option.

    Oh thanks. I went to Mitre 10 and they didn't have 13 mm. They had 6 mm. Crazy, huh?

    Got 16 mm Alumminum though.

    When he said Hep20 was flexible, is it always flexible and will it bend when used as a barrel? Is there some way to make it straight?

    Should have read this before buying 16mm Alum. I'll sell it if I attend a war.

    Sounds like it... where did you get it? And does it have a brand name?

    Sorry for sounding like a noob, but after reading all 5 pages of this thread and the barrel mats guide on nerfhaven, I am completely confused, so here goes.

    I am wanting to single a titan and I need to know the best barrel material (not brass) for streamlines and "Inform3r foam" stefans. Any help here would be greatly appreciated

    PETG... Informer should be getting it soon. (if he doesn't already have it)

    Or if you can find PVC with the right internal diameter.

    KingCam's 16mm electrical conduit works well. Its a bit bendy though, so you'll probably need to nest it in something else for stability, but it works well.

    For the sake of myself and any other unenlightened, does, say, 1/2" PVC pipe refer to the pipe's inner or outer diameter??

    I can't find imperial PVC at bunnings. Am I not looking hard enough? I think PVC is measured in Inside Diameter

    Gooni and everyone else, I'm pretty sure that PVC is meausured using the ID. UPVC is measured using the OD. That's why 15mm PVC has a much larger ID then 16mm UPVC.

    This is a bit of a noob question. When you buy conduct from a hard ware store do you have to buy the whole 6m length?

    Yes. I forgot whether it's 4 metres or 6... I think it's 4.

    Generally, yes, you usually have to buy the whole length. But it's cheap as chips, so I wouldn't stress about it. There's plenty of practical uses for it around the house - I've made sprinklers, hand-towel holders, tool holders etc with the excess I had left over. Of course, you can also run electrical cable through it as well!!

    If length is a logistical issue, I just borrow a hacksaw nearby or ask a staff member, and lop the pipe in sections (2, in my case, so it can fit in the car).

    Electrical trade stores like Middy's, although nearly all their products are off-the-shelf, should have a hacksaw around for the conduit they sell (or at least my local store does).

    Or you can buy 16mm conduit from me for $3.00 p/m
