    I had a thought,
    Would blocking the space in a streamline dart give more power?
    Has this been hypothesized before?
    I immediately thought of jamming a little foam ball from a bean bag in the end of it
    which would block it off without adding any serious weight.
    Theoretically this should marginally reduce the amount of air space in the chamber
    and result in more force, like doing a dead space removal in the breech itself.
    Right?

    While this would block it off, it would mean that it could not be used in stock blasters (not really a problem for most though). But it would also shift the balance of weight back, meaning that if fired it would be even more inaccurate.

    I thought about the dart peg issue but i've taken all the pegs out of my guns anyway so it's not a factor.

    I figured the use of a super light weight material, such as the small foam "bean" from a bean bag would only have only the most minuscule amount of weight to it and would not upset the balance of the dart.

    Part of the reason tube foam seals in a breech/barrel is because when the air is released, it flows down the centre of the dart and forces the dart walls out, thus momentarily making it a momentarily tighter fit.

    Streamlines are terrible, and elites are only marginally better. With the amount of darts lost at wars, and the time it would take to impart this deadspace mod to all of your darts, you are better off investing in solid foam rod and making your own darts that are better balanced and calibrated. Many people in the NIC still use tube foam, as there is negligible difference between the two, and a few cubed mm of deadspace is not going to effect the range/accuracy of the dart enough to ever notice.

    Keep the ideas coming!

    Ah. Now THAT'S a valid point.
    Well, back to the drawing board for me.

    P.S. Is anywhere selling the correct FBR locally in Australia yet?
    I've been out of the game for about a year
    but I seem to recall the only way to get it was in mass quantities shipped from OS.
    (obviously I'm after it in the diameter of streamlines to fit mah' blasters)

    Last I checked, Ben at VelocityTag was doing tube and rod foam, whether he's still selling is another story entirely. This is his facebook - https://www.facebook.com/pages/VelocityTag/325940447445117
