A yellow rod is like a slug, some whites are like buckshot and greens are like normal rounds.o and also tie them with a short string for bola rounds and take paper caps rip them into separate caps and put them on the back with stick glue for a epic effect

I'm gonna add my two cents now. I personally prefer the shortest green rods because they are perfect for spread shot like a truee shotgun. Even in single shot form, although they tend to tumble in flight, they have the greatest range and are still accurate enough to hit a pop can at 20 yards. In a Knex battle, pop cans at 20 yards is more than sufficiently "deadly" for me.

It all depends really one what you're going for. Yellows are probably the best for range but that's not really the purpose of a shotgun. Green rods are space efficient and would probably get decent spread without being affected as much by spinning out as longer rods would. Blue spacers would be interesting. They're very space efficient and would possibly have some stability if you could get spin on them. Of course they would be annoying to have to look for but still interesting to try out nonetheless.

i find whites to b about perfect they r more stable in flight than yellows and therefore get more range than yellows but its not that they get more range they also tend to stay on target for longer they still spread nice but not crazy everywhere it is more concentrated which means a higher chance that u will hit your target at greater distances

You would probably have the most realistick shotgun if you used greens. But alas, they are hard to find on grass and so small, they slip into sidewalk cracks. Even if with them you would fire 14 bullets at once making its preformance more like a shotguns. It also results in more spreadshot. Still, the choice is yours.

Normally, I'd shoot green or white rods because those are closer to the pellet shot shotguns normally shoot, but with something like your gun, I'd use yellows.

blues r alright but r difficult to find in grass which is one reason i don't use then... blue and whites shoot very similarly its hard to say which one is better for what im looking for

I just saw the video, and I choose white. You should try adding a mag to this gun, just so you don't have to load 7 white rods every time you shoot. Or maybe even a speed loader, so reloading is quicker.

As you said in the video, the whites tend to shoot better. I'd go with whites. Also, 8 shots gives more shotgun feel. I can't wait until I get my pieces in to make one of these.
