Tube - Excellent, includes small plug for the end.
Quiver - Excellent, especially the inlaid soft pad.
Mouthpiece - Excellent, nice material and small eyelets for a sling.
Overall - Love it.

Cones - 1/4 are warped. Already got two stuck in my pipe. Not happy about the consistency.
Mini Broadheads - These are my favorite so far. Good penetration for target shooting.
Stun darts - Lighter than I expected, but they hit hard and look cool.
Bamboo - Fun!
Broadhead - Almost all of them are warped. I've tried to bend some straight, but out of the box I'm not happy. The cutting edges need to be sharpened. Compared to a my first batch of homemade Xacto darts these suck. I like the idea of the ball at the end to transfer energy, but overall (even if they were straight) I'm not impressed.

I ordered from jungleblowgun.com and they processed and shipped within 24 hours. They sent email confirmation for both and it arrived on time. This is a merchant I will do business with again.

I made a paracord sling (simple twist) and added a small fob. I also wrapped a bit on the pipe with a small knot that I can wrap my pointer finger around comfortably.

Hey great little review. I got a 5 ft pro and alot of the cones were bent or over sized. The darts I bought extra were a lot better fit. I love the power of my CS I hope yours brings you much happiness and great use.

I wish they would fix that dart problem already! Does anyone inspect them?

It could be during shipping. I left a dart out in the cold yesterday and today the cone is super warped and twisted

I heard if you run them under hot water they correct themselves.
