    New foam is being ordered shortly.

    Again I will be voting for the new colours. Two new colours will be selected along the current line.

    Your choices are in the poll.

    Something that stands out. Yellow seems to be a good shout-out colour - so I chose that.

    damnnn, no red. glow in the dark would be cool I guess, but it'd only glow if you had a rayven clip or made your own LED charge light setup, so I chose purple.

    Black? The collection rate on black darts is terrible and for a war host who pays hundreds of dollars on darts, that's a huge draw back. Even for BYO wars why would you want black darts?

    I think, whatever the colours may be, they should always be brightly coloured. I voted purple but any bright colour, IMO, is just as good.

    I reckon the foam colours should be colours nerf don't offer, want black foam? Rip the heads off sonic micros and put a sil tip on that.

    but even if it was black foam, it would still be better than nerds foam.

    Edit: You should also consider adding a UV stabiliser agent to the foam, I know a snap cap company that add it to their plastic. Unless you already do, or it doesn't need it.

    if you have glow in the dark darts you can come back at night time and collect your darts. But i wouldnt bother too, so i chose black, looks cool and stands out

    Not quite sure how black stands out... but each to their own, right? (There's probably a very good reason they make some military uniforms black, the enemy needs to see where they are, right?)

    Back on topic, I chose glow in the dark white, because at streamline length, the majority of bright colours (ie the current blue used in the foam) stand out well in grass and leaf-litter (what the majority of the country seems to nerf on). Really, any colour other than black or grey would work rather well.
    Off-topic again, wouldn't mind having the man-salmon foam back (not made weird this time).

    Pink, purple, or yellow because glow in the dark white already exists, I don't see the point in it, and I couldn't care less if my darts glow.

    Also, I for one, don't nerf in the dark anyway.

    I choose glow in the dark white.

    Any colour is better then the ones nerf make. I mean camo darts realy their stock ones are hard to find anyway but truth be told I would buy any of these colours.

    How long would the glow in the dark foam glow for? Apparently Nerf's new glow foam doesn't glow for long.

    The Glow in the dark was proposed by a number of groups, it would also expand on the ability to war during the night and have a tracer effect on the target.

    I haven't tested the glow darts. But I will speak to my connections to check the longevity of the glow in the foam and test the Hasbro stuff as well before making a commitment. I believe the glow may stop because of an extended period of time in the heat or sun.

    2 Seconds? Are you serious?

    Can you confirm via webcam video or something on youtube?

    I'd really like to see the dark blue but they would be hard to see/find and not really suitable for outside wars.
    Green and Yellow would stand out nicely

    Luke why always angry?

    Back on topic:

    I wouldn't suggest the glow-in-the-dark darts. We have a guy who uses white-out darts(Pretty much same coloured foam) and they are a pain to find. You guys would be better off going for a bright colour eg: yellow or the purple would work to.

    Pfft Luke is awesome haha! any way, I think that white glow in the dark foam would be epic. but wouldn't it
    cost more to make? If it would I would just go with normal white.

    Luke. Seriously. That was rude. Why do you always have to be like that. So aggressive towards members just because you think you're right. You could of just said they glow for about 10 seconds for me. Not attack another member just because he might of been wrong.

    I think I said this but, light purple would be great, and if you're going to go white, may as well glow, so now modded ravens can be even more awesome, because they will have accurate darts that glow also your foam is far superior to nerf's.
