Durability

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 are still determining the limits during this beta phase. We do not recommend this dart for beginners.

Dart Lengths

Vision darts were first released with the spin16 version. We developed new vision boards at the end of 2019 to enable a shorter version with a smaller dart head.

Spin9 and Spin16 refer to the corresponding firmware versions, as the patterns are mapped to the length of the vision core.

Spin9 provides a more precise dart, but has less light output.

They're both terrific - you can choose the one that better meets your needs! Feel free to check in with us if you need guidance :)

Leash Cord

We offer several different types of dart cord - see below to determine the best rope for your style.

6mm smithy rope:

0.25" (6.5mm) 12-strand braided polyester rope, specifically designed for poi, darts, puppyhammers 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.

Braided cotton rope:

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.

Dragon rope X (+$25):

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.

RDA flow (+$40):

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.

Capsule 2.0 Remote - Retractable Reel

We recommend getting discounted a capsule 2.0 remote to navigate and perform more complex functions that require a lot of button presses. Plus it’s fun to hand the remote to someone else, while you’re spinning, so they can VJ your modes.

You also have the option of adding 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 ;)
