    Hi Guys

    Foam Stocks are nearly depleted completely, I am ordering again shortly for it to arrive in April.

    Poll is up for a secondary colour, this colour will be used as a dart hire colour and will only be sold to major organizers of wars not to individuals. Not to worry more blue is arriving with the secondary colour.

    The reason this is being implemented as our dart hire loss rate up here has increased majorly and it will be used to solve this problem and any arguments over ownership of darts.

    Poll is up, my preference is green with secondary as pink. Reason I vote green is because it matches the official colours of the new website

    niser-foam

    Better term? lol

    Anyway, I think it will just be 'whatever' foam like blue foam is now wouldnt it? :S

    Like, if it was red, it would just be called Red foam?

    Will it be the same properties as the current blue foam?

    Exactly the same.

    @ sd_type

    If green is the colour, it will be a fluorescent green similar to the blue.

    As one of those that spends more than double the time than many of the other here collecting darts, the colour needs to be one that will stand out very well in most places. I would be tending towards fluorescent Pink or Orange or the bright Red. The blue currently is pretty good and often stands out well.

    I voted bright pink. Easiest to spot not only on the ground but also in the air so refs can count hits better.

    Without derailing when will the sili's be in? I'm getting eager for some >.<

    I think Bright Red is a good colour. How many metres are we required to buy to be regarded as a co-ordinator? (I'm starting to run Nerf events in my uni in NSW and just wondering)

    Pink Pink Pink! lol

    but seriously, its easy to spot and its awesome. Also why only to war organisers, because in Adelaide, its not the war organiser that does dart hire and it also dosent happen all the time. IMO it should be available to pretty much everyone.

    While it might not work as well in Adelaide this will REALLY fix up some issues here in Brisbane.

    I vote for keeping it for selected persons. Perhaps not event organisers, but dart hire people - and there should only be one or two within each warring community, otherwise the benefit (stops people stealing dart hire darts) disappears.

    Just because you want it does not mean he is obligated to sell it to you haha.

    Keep blue as the primary - it just works, allows continuity with current batch otherwise we'll have 3 colours. Pink is cool, Orange too.

    Purple for contrast, It's the opposite to green according to additive colour theory. It will be the easiest to see on grass. (I'm a set designer if you really want to debate this, also i'm one of the organisers buying the stuff).
    On another note is it possible to get tougher foam for not much more money?

    Im the only guy in Melbourne that dos darts hire.

    I don't think the color Bright Green is good for making darts because we will lost it to easy in the grass.

    I think these three colors are the best colors for darts hire.

    Bright Purple, Bright Pink or Bright Red.

    I'd have to put a secondary vote for Purple, after my already announced vote for Green. These two colours are the furthest and most recognizable away from Orange & Blue. I'm a big fan of toxic green really, but honestly whatever colour comes up is great considering your War Organizer only ethos. Thanks for looking after us Inf0rm3r

    I don't care if I'm compromising my masculinity here; I'm voting pink.
    Why? It's the only colour that strays from any of the colours used in stock darts which can also be found easily with its eye-rape.

    Sthuper, thanks for asking...

    Just to clarify do we have 43 war organizers in Australia?

    How hard would it be for you to get another colour? PM details if you need a set amount
