I thought it only happened on my AT2K (foot long barrel, four pumps). But it started happening as I was testing my BBUMB RSCB (5 pumps). At the moment it's mostly happening to blue foam.
So put simply it comes down to high pressures. The BBUMB doesn't have as big of a tank as the Titan or the 4B, so I guess it makes sense it has high pressures for low volume of air.
Anyway share experiences and possible hypotheses for solving this issue. Someone suggested the straw mod, I need to try it out myself but we mostly drink straight out of the glass in this house so I gotta buy me some.
- straw mod, use a straw to strengthen the hole in the dart.
- use FBR, or fill up the holes with cut up foam and hot glue (or this here )
- cutting down the length of the darts (45mm or 1.5 inch darts)
- don't get over-excited in your application of super glue. too much and it'll be absorbed by the foam, causing it to dry up and more prone to 'cracking'/splitting
