How can I get more knex?

I am trying to buy more knex pieces for knex guns, but many tubs have "micro knex". I don't want that. Could anyone tell me how I could get more (regular) knex?

Unfortunately, Knex has started making micro sizes and don't produce the regular sets anymore. But here are some other ways: You can always look on eBay, they have TONS of good deals and you could have a friend buy them for you. I got a set of 4,000 pieces for only $76. Just type in Knex in the search bar and narrow down your description by clicking Building Toys, then Knex, and go from there. For me, I searched used knex because they are a lot cheaper. Another alternative is to wait for those spring garage sales. You would be surprised how many good deals you can find. Hope this helps!

micro kn-ex is so annoying because its all for stupid kids and all this kid knex rubbish. but here is some advice you can go on knex user group and there are millions offers. DON'T GO ON AMAZON BECAUSE THEY DO MICRO KN-EX AND KID KN-EX. don't follow the manuals make your because they put bits there what they don't need and it wastes kn-ex. Bid on eBay and get better offers but to warn you this can be annoying because someone will put a bid in a higer bid in and that's guaranteed on the eBay website
knex has turned to lego we want it back knex has turned to lego we want it back

knex has turned t o lego if you dont go on ebay
you can still buy the 6 foot ferris wheel that set has no micro knex or bricks
and loads of normal knex
True =] I almost bought this set. $500 Though
you can better buy 4 big ball factory's for the same price and you have 4000 pieces more than the 6 foot ferris wheel;-)

Its not much but If you go to http://www.knexinstructions.jetforum.net then you can win free knex by entering competitions for free!.
Almost every gun there is a KKC (killerk copy) and the admin is that dude who stole the OSNJCKMA2 and Ooda's semi auto.
At least he's quitting! You should post a comment on his thread telling him that you're responsible enough to take care of the site (he's look for someone to take his place).
Really?!?!?
Yes, really.
The Loopin' Lightning has about 400 regular parts in it (mostly red and gray rods and 3D Connectors).  Just ignore the micro parts if you don't like them (or you could always try them out).  It's about $40 at Wal-Mart.

ebay, I got a good 8000 peices for $40.
Wow, lucky! I only have 3 k or something...
luckyy, i checked Nov 28th 2009, and all they had was lot's of 1000 or less...
i love knex, good for a person who like's building, or creating.
it would be awesome if in store's you could buy big bulk crate's or what ever of knex ( like 1000 piece's + ) for a pretty cheap price.:P

Well the easy way to get regular K'nex is Ebay, But no one has explained why. K'nex, like all consturction toys, have to improve sometime. When K'nex is manufactured, They don't have our pourposes in mind. They only think they are a company that makes the toy, Sells it with specific instuructions and ships it out to be played with by building sets. Just like LEGO, they always come out with new things. But unlike LEGO, They created new types of pieces. But go to ebay to keep our wonderful site running with K'nex!

can i add on to KnexStealths? Used knex may be a lot cheaper, but it certainly is more used, weak and broken. My 3000 pcs set came with about 100 broken pieces, not much if you have bought a lot, but it is also important. one of they was even a grey rod that someone had twisted lengthways (don't know how they did it).
Twisting a rod lengthways is very possible. Just hook one end up to a drill set on high torque, and put extreme pressure on the other end of the rod. Pull the trigger on the drill. At least that's how I did it lol.
XD yeah, but why do that?
I was bored XD
hmm. i feel bored... lets kill some knex!

you can always complain if you paid too much for broken knex.
nah. it was only about 200 pieces, and i got it quite cheap (£35 total for 3000)
