Typical Cold Steel Quality
These are the best darts you can buy. The other darts that I've used, aside from the thicker, black and orange colored stun dart, are just not sturdy enough, or don't fly straight enough. The shaft of those darts are plastic, and they tend to get bent easily, which makes them fly really funny after a few shots. Not these things, though. They are heavy duty(for the small size and price), and the fly really straight. The tip will get blunted easily if you're driving them into hard objects. I have to say, though, I filled up a milk jug with water(1 gallon), and then froze it solid for a few days and I was driving these things into it with no problem, and really not that much blunting of the tips. I shot the same 10 or so darts at this thing for about 2 hours and they are still good to penetrate wood, or anything else. And if you're losing your cones, when you hit things, which I was dealing with, start putting your targets right in front of a backstop of some kind. I just use my wooden fence in my back yard, and the darts fly through whatever object, and get caught in the fence. If the cone is gone, its usually within eyesight and I just pop it back on when I retrieve the other portion of the dart. Like I said, these things are super fun, super accurate, and really well priced. I live close enough to KC so that I was able to go pick them up on location, and as always, the staff is really patient and helpful. Get these things and start having some cheap fun.
