    I had read about Informer Range Effect on Length of Foam Post and keep wondering why the lighter dart traveled less further than a heavier one. So I conducted a test myself. I used those to do the test.

    Effects of Dart Length to Dart's Attributes  Img00210

    After the test, I got this comparision between original length streamline dart vs half length one:


    Orginal

    Power: Up
    Speed: Slower
    Range: Increased
    Weight: Heavier
    Reliability: Dependable

    Shorter dart

    Power: Down
    Speed: Faster
    Range: Decreased
    Weight: Lighter
    Reliability: Dependable



    Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages.

    With the Origanal dart, you get the range and power effective for mid-long range shots but slower speed which many players can see its coming and easily dogde (Except for point blank range). Dart's reliability also affect the its accuracy, I noticed that the older that travel less straight than the newer one (Of course) but the more straight they fly the better accuracy you get in my opinion.

    With the Shorter dart, you get shorter range but higher speed effective for short-mid range shots. Recommeded for pistol use.

    Besides, Indoor and Outdoor enviroment also affects dart's traveling distances and path. Wind is the worst enemy of dart (in my opinion-IMO). Depending on the direction and power of the wind, the travelling path of dart can be significantly changed especially lighter and shorter dart. Indoor war, shorter dart is a bit more advantage (IMO) due to its speed and wind effect-free factor.
    Shorter dart also increases player's mobility but there's a problem with those darts if you wanna use them with clips. Jams happen quite offen (Still working on how to fix it)

    After all, depending the enviroment, the battle field, tactic and weapons, choosing the appropriate type of dart could gain you a bit of advantage over you opponents.

    I hope this is informative.

    Cheers

    What about accuracy over multiple shots of one type?

    Either way, you want the longest range in your pistol. So you may as well use a long dart. Lol.

    It's more about the tip weight than the length, although I do feel length has a factor. Can't really test anything with streamlines, though, it's like a lucky draw, trying to hit something.

    @Vavoom: since the Mini dart doesn't work with the clip so i couldnt run the test, I did try but always jam from the beginning...but accuracy of multiple shots is surely low on any type of dart...just spray and pray..

    @Littlebro: True...but travelling speed is quite a concern for me...I had seen few real time Nerf wars and also experienced Nerf war myself...its quite easy to dodge darts unless you got sniped. So in my opinion, higher speed means higher hitting rate.

    @Mozart: I am running test about the weight of dart tip so i will have some answers for this soon.

    I haven't really noticed a significant velocity increase, you would be surprised at what some blasters can do. You would have trouble dodging oxymoron's brass breech longshot from up to 30metres. His darts fly FAST. Also is dependent on the blaster too i guess.

    @Littlebro: wow...this dude's gun is awesome. But if we are talking about stock gun, it would make quite a difference. Anyway, i will run more tests based on those ideas. Thanks mate!

    It's more about the blaster, man. No one uses stock blasters, because they suck. Tip weight, calibrated to the blaster has much more to do with velocity than length of foam.

    Oxy's an amateur at making Longshot's - 30m haha

    Nah, he's got the Ultra spring's, which makes him the man!! I'd hate to be dodging them little bugger's

    Haha, no clunk, I'm talking that his dart still travels pretty darn fast from 30metres. When angled it can shoot from anywhere 45-55metres.

    The idea of having small 'mini darts' as pistol rounds is pretty cool lol.

    @Littlebro: Thanks mate! But for me, I am using mini dart as pistol rounds in my private Nerf war with cousins...Hope I could use it someday in public Nerf war.
    @Mozart and Clunky: Rofl...Truck spring...1200kg...tempting...Definitely will get one
