I read on another forum you could boil them to fix it, but I havent tried it yet. I got the paracord at gorillaparacord.com. They have like 50 colors to choose from, free shipping, and 10 yards is only like $3 to $4.

Nice. I think it only goes up lile $0.25 per 25ft. Now that I'm thinking about it I should have ordered more :S

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

Mine were all rubber banded up. Im sure that didnt help.

Same experience here.  Love the blowgun, but the darts that came with it left a lot to be desired.  However, I ordered a bunch of darts by themselves and I only had one or two with bad cones out of 150 darts.

Received my 5 ft version yesterday and the new stun darts don't fit - at least the first 5 I tried before giving up. Cones warped on mine as well for many of the other varieties. Blowgun is very nice - ammo is junk IMO. CS should be ashamed....

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.

fix warped cones hair dryer and glas marble  15 seconds undtill true again good luck
