I brought 300ish Koosh back in March and the quality was highly variable - Might just be the UK seller got a bad batch but there was a fair few with the tip problem as well as some slightly odd performance issues in Stampedes. Ended up selling them and just buying more ZS Elites when Amazon cut the price to £4.50 a box. May pick up 50 of those red Voberry style darts just as a control test - £1.80 delivered is worth it for a test batch.

I loaded up on 200 Koosh darts last semester and will be doing it again next semester, but a lot more. The darts are not perfect, but I can say that in the many times I have fired em from my overvolted Stryfe, they are significantly more accurate than regular elites and those hard-tipped knockoffs (our HvZ moderator banned those, as they are rock-hard and deliver an unacceptable sting, and given they have absolutely no shock-absorption whatsoever, they'd much more easily cause permanent eye damage). Kooshes do have an issue with the glue holding the tips on, but overall I find the percentage of darts that actually are in danger of coming apart, especially under flywheel use, is very low. Sure, when you squeeze them at the tip, you'll notice they seem a bit loose, but fortunately most will hold very well for many shots. If one has time to reglue them though, I'd definitely recommend it.

Be interested to see how your batch is, Toruk - hope it's not just that I was lucky, hopefully most batches are like mine!!

Update: They are fine on magfed springers. Also, from initial testing, I think these will be an excellent and long-lived beater dart for noncritical and rental/loaner situations.

On the subject of dart options, recently a large number of knockoff "elite" listings have appeared on eBay, let's just call them "7.2cm darts" (since that is frequently specified or in the listing title). From research and several accounts of what buyers received, these are all the same product as Voberry's darts sold on Amazon, but quality control (particularly tip bonding) may vary.

Also, I found yet another new dart on ebay from a few suppliers. A fellow blogger ordered some to test.

I have a Koosh order coming and will be addressing regluing tips on these.

Failure to lock. Check that the PT is installed with the square lug facing the right side of the gun (down, when split open on the bench). There is a possibility of worse gremlins (a squadmate had one of these with an afterburner that was an absolute nightmare to debug) but check the easy stuff like incorrect assembly, broken or missing parts first.

I'm aware it's been a year and a half for this post, but it's relevant.
I bought an old Vulcan from Evands, and have been working on it. After an OMW spring, AR removal, PCB removal, and rewire job, the system runs like a dream, except that the darts stay in the belt as if there's no air pressure. Any ideas?

Thanks for the review. I ordered 300, so I'll probably give them out with the blasters I rent out for games. Please pass the word when you try out the magazine-fed blasters.

Voberry dart review is up: http://torukmakto4.blogspot.com/2014/09/voberry-dart-not-competition-grade.html

In short, these are low in cost with nice foam and no out of the box problems (such as the notorious koosh dart tip glue), but they are effectively Streamlines, heavy (probably heavier than a real Streamline) yet rather inaccurate.

The nerf saber project is a bust so I will be using just the regular old nerf swords. Cool
