If you've made 'em we'd like to see them.  Describe a litte of how you made them.

I have made bamboo darts but I do not have a lot of pictures on hand. I have a lot of fun with paper cone darts. Check out the making and shooting vids.

Is there a special duct tape I'm looking for?  I've been hearing you want the 'thin' stuff not thick?  I didn't realize

there were different thicknesses?  Or are we talking dollar store grade as opposed to hardeware store?

duck brand duct tape is thin while IPG for example is pretty thick. Thin tape works better because it bends easier inside the pipe meaning it will seal better....its also lighter

not all name brand is thin!!!! be aware of that....gorilla tape for example, is extremely thick and will most like not even come out of the tube with a strong blow......I would just stick with duck brand...its probably the thinnest that I've worked with so far
