|That's right ladies. Darts. One for each of you.|
I was browsing online when I came across a site called nerf-darts.com; a page basically on Nerf darts and which ones you should purchase for which blasters. While no doubt this is a valuable resource, I had to wonder what would make anyone want to create a page just on Nerf darts..and leave it as that. Then I realised it was probably for advertising purposes and it all made sense. Still, useful if you're new to the Nerf game and puzzled over which darts go with what. It doesn't cover some of the aesthetic differences though, so I've got supplementary info after the jump.
|Oh such variety!|
|like lil' wieners:)|
Whistler or Sonic Darts come in black with orange tips, orange with black tips, and snow camo (ooh swanky!)with black tips colour schemes. They're nicely weighted and are called as such because they send out a pretty cool.. well whistle when they fly thru the air. These can be used in all blasters EXCEPT for clip system blasters.
Micro Darts are the ones with suction caps on the end, and come in orange with blue tips, orange with black tips, forest camo with black tips, white with glow-in-the-dark tips and... er non Nerf crappy yellow with orange tips. The suction caps are quite strong and stick to walls and flat screen monitors nicely:) They can be used in all blasters EXCEPT for clip system blasters.
|Dart Tag darts. These hurt when coming in contact with the face. Really.|
Dart Tag darts are similar to Whistler darts in appearance but have velcro tape on the tips. Their selling point is they stick to clothes and those dorky vests that come with the Dart Tag range of Nerf. They come in orange with orange tips and green with green tips. They also work with all Nerf blasters BUT the clip system ones, but do also have a tendancy of jamming in the REV series (Maverick and Firefly).
Sooo there you have it. fascinating stuff eh?:)
