I should be able to learn something new now, as everyone has different styles.

Its funny how people can (complain) about old threads being re-opened. Although if a new thread was started on the same subject, their thread would be disregarded and they would be told to refer to the old thread.

Posted:yeah i agree on the blisters, particlularly on the index finger of the right hand.
i put in some serious practice with rope dart last year before
A: I agreed that some martial arts knowledge would be incredibly handy with learning rope dart
B:I lost my rope dart
i even went as far as to make a little two finger glove to proect my precious finger out of moose skin.
but i gave up on rope dart and learnt to juggle instead


my original signature was tooo long.
this one is shorter

Posted:ubblol

you could try sowing somthing like a silk jacket onto the rope that you know you will be running over your skin, or something like that?


what i would say is that try not to run the rope, as you will then not e staying true to the nature of the weapon, you will get a much better effect and level if you do remeber this is a weapon

or im just rambling and i should go to sleep

Posted:a rope dart instructional video that ive got on loan from ataxia has told me to get thicker rope. after using ataxias rope dart with 1/2 inch kevlar on it, its definetly worth the extra cost / weight.

am planning on making fire rope dart once i get some money

cheers, pete biggrin

I use half inch pure kevlar rope, very forgiving on the hands during early learning, but yeah trying not to run the rope through the hand has definit advantages.

Posted:I do alot of one handed Poi shenanigans, during a recent visit by some English Friends (Strugs, nate and UCOF) i was told to come here to seek the knowledge of the rope dart, so theres gonna be a workshop huh !?? Falmouth here i come then smile

p.s. over here in Ireland, materials and resources are Scarce to say the least, and where and when available... Bloody Expensive, is there any chance of one being manufactured for me and purchased on arrival ? may i enter into private message negotions with a possible builder? ubbrollsmile

Posted:hey, have you played with strugz or nates rope darts, i made theirs



ok, so i just looked at the wiki board for falmouth 4 and i am doing a rope dart workshop, for real (best get something like a plan down)



its going to be more or less a jamming session for people to trade tricks and sort tricks out.....



what i plan to do is work mainly on wraps and stall, and a couple of jumps and tech moves for people and see what other people have





im hoping to be able to bring some targets down to use for pratctice to get the lines and planes right for people.







pm me if you want to talk about darts
