Introduction: Nerf Dart Mod for Extra Distance
Make nerf darts go further and hit with more force with a few simple items.
I am not responsible for what you do with this dart. This dart is more powerful than other dart mods simply because it uses a pen instead of a straw.
Distances with/without mod:
(note this is with my modded nite finder pointing straight forward. will go lots farther at a slight angle.)

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Stuff You Need
a pen (BIC pen or something like that)
green knex rod
pliers (NOT needle nosed)
Step 2: The Dart
pull off the top of the dart so that you just have a foam tube. the glue should be weak enough so that you can remove it without cutting.
Step 3: The Pen
with the pliers, remove the ink shaft part and the bottom. If you can't get the bottom off, feel free to use the saw to cut it off.
Step 4: Putting It Together
1. push the knex piece into the pen shaft until it is completely in there.
2. wiggle the pen shaft into the dart.
3. cut off the extra pen shaft with the saw.
4. you're done!
Step 5: Using It
this very strong dart should be able to leave a small bruise. needless to say, don't fire at other people. if you want, you can glue the pen shaft to the dart to secure it better.
