How can I get more knex? Answered

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

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.

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.
