this reveiws all the main types of ammo used in knex projectile weapons, and lists the pros and cons of each.
Step 1: rods
these are the most common of all knex ammo. i would estimate that 70% of all knex guns use rods.
Pros: durable, reliable, work well in mags, decent range.
Cons: the main problem with rods is that they tend to flip sideways mid-flight. this both reduces impact and increases drag, causing them to spin off target. this happens to small rods earlier, but it has a greater effect on long rods.
Recommended for: all conditions.
