The vision dart is durable, but there's a lot of sensitive electronics at the end of a very long tether and nothing is indestructible. This dart is amazing for performance, but is not meant to take repeatedly impacts on hard surfaces. We do not recommend this dart for beginners.
We offer several different types of dart cord - see below to determine the best rope for your style.
0.25" (6.5mm) 12-strand braided polyester rope, specifically designed for poi, darts, meteors and other tethered props. It's supple and has better abrasion and sunlight resistance than nylon and MFP ropes used in many other props. It won't shrink, has lower stretch, and higher breaking strength. It can be cut with scissors, and you can melt the ends to prevent fray.
A light-weight, no-stretch 100% cotton braided cord recommended by the Rope Dart Academy for optimal dart use. This #6 cotton cord maintains consistent grip even with sweat, and after a brief initial break-in period, offers the ideal amount of friction for dart use for a long time compared to alternatives. Features a 3/16" diameter. Each foot weighs ~2g.
This 3/16" premium rope, made by our friends at Dark Monk, is made from a slick & durable synthetic fiber used extensively by NASA. Super smooth and abrasion-resistant, it is also extremely durable, able to withstand temperatures up to 300°F! Splicing fids are recommended for hardware connection rather than knots; your Dragon Rope X dart rope will come with a pre-finished assembly for easy installation to the included dart loop.
Designed and made by the Rope Dart Academy specifically for flowtoys LED darts, this 3/8" premium ripstop nylon leash is lightweight, super durable and hella smooth. Comes with a stainless steel swivel.
Can add an optional discounted capsule 2.0 remote, which is super useful for navigating and performing more complex functions that require a lot of button presses, especially for several props at once! Plus it’s fun to hand the remote to someone else, while you’re spinning, so they can VJ your modes.
Plus you can add a super nifty retractable reel to your capsule remote. The reel features 22" of steel wire and an activated laser cut wooden super f sticker. The capsule remote without the reel already comes with a flowtoys mini-carabiner, so you can easily attach it to a belt loop or your backpack, but the reel gives you some extra security and freedom - like letting new friends VJ with your remote without worrying about it going home with them by accident ;)
